Panicking EastEnders fans were convinced they had missed an episode after a kidnapping twist.
Thursday night’s episode started with Keanu Taylor blindfolded and tied to a chair in an abandoned warehouse.
Terrified Keanu was pretty sure that Phil Mitchell had discovered he was having an affair with Sharon and was taking revenge.
Then came the shock revelation that Keanu had been taken hostage by his own mum, Karen, and former lover, Sharon, as part of a warped plan to keep him quiet.
But EastEnders viewers were very confused for the first few minutes of the episode as they tried to piece together what was going on.
They took to Twitter to question whether they had missed an entire episode.
One viewers tweeted: “When #eastenders makes you panic that you got a sudden bout of amnesia or something so you head to Twitter to find out #wtf…”
“I don’t get it how did Keanu get kidnapped he was sat on phils sofa when the last episode ended,” added another.
A third said: “@bbceastenders just went on Iplayer because I thought I missed an episode of #EastEnders and now I have missed the beginning of this episode working out that I never missed an episode. Very annoying and stupid”
Keanu started screaming out Phil’s name as he squirmed in his chair.
He shouted: “Phil. I just want to be with Louise. I just want to be with Louise and the baby. Phil, I’m sorry.”
The mechanic then tried to shuffle across the room on the chair but feel over and ended up knocking himself out.
Suddenly, viewers discovered that menacing duo Sharon and Karen were behind it all.
Providing some much-needed exposition, Karen explained: “I cant believe you’ve talked me into doing this. Drugging my own son. Nicking Mich’s van to get him here.
“You dragged me down to your level. He’s going to kick off when he finds out we’re behind this.”
Sharon claimed that Keanu needed to get a taste of what would happen if he confessed all to Phil.
Shocked EastEnders fans could not believe that Kazza and Shazza were the kidnappers.
One stunned viewer asked: “WHAT IS GOING ON #eastenders KAREN AND SHARON???????”
“OMG, Sharon and Karen is the one who kidnaps Keanu,” added another.
A third said: “Karen actually helped kidnap her own b****y Son seriously? WTF is she actually thinking?”
