Sam Mitchell is ready to cut her losses in Monday's episode of EastEnders (7:30 pm. see our TV Guide for full listings).

Sam Mitchell is desperate to get back in brother Phil Mitchell's good books after he pretty much excommunicated her from the family! 

He was in a fury that Sam was allowing drugs to be sold in the club and that his son Ben Mitchell bought some from the dealer and nearly died.

Sidling up to Phil's fiancee Kat Slater, Sam asks her to put in a good word for her. But there's no love lost between the women and Kat tells her firmly that there's no way she's getting involved!

With few options left, Sam decides that her return to Walford is at an end and she needs to get herself out of there. She asks Kat for the code to the safe so she can retrieve her passport.

Not trusting Sam, Kat gives her the code but warns her that she'd better not find anything else missing.

Suddenly it seems that Sam's plans are about to change when Zack Hudson gives her a call to say that he's found Ben's rapist Lewis Butler.

A devious Sam takes the gun from the safe and she and Zack set off to find him...
