The life of Keegan Baker (Zack Morris) has been left hanging in the balance on tonight’s EastEnders after the troubled teen was rushed to hospital after a drugs binge. Distraught mum Karen Taylor (Lorraine Stanley) was seen swearing revenge on whoever sold him the narcotics, little knowing that Keegan had taken the stash from Tiffany Butcher (Maisie Smith).
Despite dad Mitch (Roger Griffiths) trying to reassure Karen that their boy would pull through, she and viewers at home have been left wondering whether this could be it for Keegan, who was first seen in intensive care last year when he was the victim of a shock knife attack on the Square.
Monday’s episode of the BBC1 soap saw Keegan go off the rails following a falling out with Mitch, who has recently been seen trying to build bridges with his son after being estranged from him for a number of years. After another family argument, Keegan was seen attempting to buy drugs from Tiff, but when she refused to sell him any, he swiped some from her bag. But what the pair didn’t know was that their actions were being observed by Mitch’s young daughter Bailey.
Later on that same evening, Keegan was found unconscious by Bailey by the community centre and, after an ambulance was called, he was taken to Walford General. But Tiffany is now fearful that the drugs trail will lead back to her after Bailey made it known that she’d seen Keegan take them from her.
Tomorrow’s episode of EastEnders will see tensions run high at the hospital, although it does seem as though Keegan is out of danger. As a furious Karen demands answers, Keegan opts to keep silent about where he sourced the illegal substances. Feeling guilty, Tiffany leaves, but Bernadette (Clair Norris) follows and is quick to quiz her. Later, seeing Karen blaming herself for what’s happened, Mitch admits that he has caught Keegan with drugs before. As things escalate, Bailey tells them all that she saw Keegan getting the drugs from Tiffany, all of which leads to Karen confronting a shocked Whitney (Shona McGarty) at the Vic.
Viewers will then see Tiffany try to reassure Whit as she protests her innocence. But as they head home, the pair find the police waiting for them on the doorstep. So will Tiffany now face arrest? And will Keegan admit the truth about what happened?
