Things go from bad to worse for Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters) following his arrest as he is subjected to a brutal attack.
Keanu accepted a job from Ravi Gulati (Aaron Thiara) that saw him transporting drugs in a van, but as he was running late to his son Albie Watts’ christening, Keanu parked the van at the church to attend.
When the van’s alarm went off, Keanu was arrested but eventually let out on bail. But his ordeal wasn’t over as he was attacked and left for dead.
Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) sees Keanu and calls an ambulance, just as a distraught Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean) arrives.
In the waiting room, Sharon shares her theory with Phil that Ravi is behind the attack but Phil isn’t convinced.
When Keanu’s mother Karen Taylor (Lorraine Stanley) arrives, she tears into Sharon for forcing Keanu to turn to crime to keep up but his sister Bernadette Taylor (Clair Norris) counters that he’s mixed up in things none of them know about.

As Nish berates Ravi for putting himself in a position to be thrown back inside, the police arrive at Walford East.
