EastEnders viewers were astonished at a huge plot twist during last night's episode (Thursday, December 22) as the truth behind Keanu Taylor's (Danny Walters) unexpected return was finally revealed.
And now, it seemed Keanu was back for revenge as he had been secretly meeting up with DCI Keeble to give her information about Phil.
During the episode, things plunged into chaos when Keanu and Phil came face-to-face at the Vic. The pair had a punch up and Keanu was dragged out of the confrontation by his mum, Karen Taylor (Lorraine Stanley).
However, as the episode came to an end, a huge bombshell was dropped when Keanu and Phil met up at The Arches.
In a shocking turn of events, it was revealed that Keanu and Phil were secretly working together to take down Keeble together, despite their rocky past and their earlier showdown had all been an act.
"Cutting my lip weren't supposed to be part of the plan though, was it?" Phil questioned Keanu.
"Got to make it look convincing, ain't we?" Keanu replied.
The former enemies then discussed their plan for Keeble, saying that Keeble had no idea what was coming her way.
"She thinks the sharks are circling. What she don't know is, they ain't circling for me," Phil said.
Fans loved the unexpected twist and took to Twitter to express their surprise...
