Last night's EastEnders saw Keanu race to save kidnapped Louise in an action-packed episode...

Last night's episode of EastEnders left soap fans on the edge of their seats as Keanu Taylor raced to save Louise Mitchell after she was kidnapped by Phil's dodgy business associates.

The drama began when Louise was seen being bundled into a car at the end of Friday (19 April) night's episode by dangerous Midge, who has been hanging around the Square for weeks.

Midge kidnaped Louise on Friday last week...

Last night saw Keanu calling Phil with the news that his daughter had been snatched off the street, interrupting the Mitchells' family lunch.

But as Keanu chased the kidnapper's car to a dockyard on Phil's orders, it was a race against time to find which container she was in before she got shipped away.

Fans were loving the high-speed drama and even compared the episode to an action movie...

But while most viewers were sitting back and enjoying the action, others were determined to work out how Louise was going to escape Danny and Midge's clutches.

As Phil and Ben raced to the dockyard to help Keanu to track down Louise, Phil called his daughter's phone, trying to work out where she was.

Louise heard the phone ringing from the car that was in the container with her, but with her arms tied she couldn't answer as Phil tried to get in touch.

Phil bangs on a shipping container, but will he find Louise?

But some fans thought that Louise should be using the voice activated search tool on her phone to call her dad back, or even try using her nose to answer!

Eventually Keanu found Louise and tried to untie her feet, but before he could get her out of the container, Midge knocked him out cold with a metal pole.
