Next week on EastEnders, Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean) will encounter terrible peril when boxing promoter Dorian Gates begins to enforce the law while accompanied by a squad of heavyweights.
As fans are aware, Dorian and Sharon met earlier this year. To Keanu Taylor’s (Danny Walters) dismay, the two hit it off like a house on fire.
Keanu made the decision to act after Dorian suggested to Sharon that she travel to Abu Dhabi in order to seek a new career opportunity. This was especially true after Sharon forbade him from spending time with Albi.
His goal is, of course, to spend more time with son Albi, refusing to lose access to another child after what happened with Peggy earlier this year when Lisa Fowler (Lucy Benjamin) stopped him from seeing her.
Sharon, meanwhile, has been preoccupied with her life-changing move, though her attention is elsewhere next week, with the Halloween offering of the BBC One soap proving particularly scary.
Dorian, who feels he is due retribution, shows up at the Boxing Den with several scary heavyweights at his side to confront Sharon and demand payment.
In the photo, Sharon is holding a baseball bat in the hopes that it would provide her the defense she needs to keep the mobster at bay, but soon she realizes she has assistance.
Of course, Keanu!
Will Dorian compromise now that Keanu has arrived? Or will Sharon be compelled to comply with the criminal’s demands?
And what role does Keanu play in all of this?
Is he honestly worried about the person he used to think he would spend the rest of his life with?
Or is this “hero in shining armor” act really a ruse to get Sharon to believe he has her best interests at heart so he can attack when she least expects it?
All we can do is wait and see!
On Tuesday, October 31 at 7:30 p.m. on BBC One and BBC iPlayer, EastEnders will broadcast these sequences.
