Eastenders Spoilers: Issuing Threats – Next Thursday, expect Phil to be on a mission. Learning Keanu is still alive and holding Callum Highway (Tony Clay) hostage, he will threaten Karen Taylor (Lorraine Stanley). He demands to know where Keanu is hiding. It is doubtful she will give up her own son, though. Especially after everything she went through trying to get answers when he went missing.
Searching For Keanu Taylor – Eastenders spoilers tease the search for Keanu lands him on The Vic’s boat party. Phil and Ben Mitchell (Max Bowden) will also be there, which means there will be a whole lot of drama and conflict.

We already know that Keanu has been in contact with Sharon Mitchell (Letitia Dean). The suspense builds in the 35th-anniversary trailer when Phil is seen at the end making eye contact with his estranged wife.
The Vic’s Boat Party Ends in Death – It is confirmed the boat party will end in death, but who dies remains a mystery. It was recently suggested that the victim won’t be the person fans are expecting to die. Keanu has a target on his forehead, but will he really be the one who meets his demise?
