EastEnders fans have been left in shock after arch enemies Phil Mitchell and Keanu Taylor were revealed to be working together on Thursday’s episode.
Keanu returned to the soap earlier this month, three years after fleeing after the Mitchells plotted to have him murdered following his affair with Phil’s wife Sharon.
Viewers didn’t see the twist of the two characters pairing up coming, as Keanu had appeared to be working with DCI Keeble to try and trap Phil and bring him down.
The team-up turned out to be a double bluff, as Keanu was seen in the latest episode meeting with Phil at The Arches as they hatched out a plan targeting DCI Keeble.
Fans shared their reactions to the clever twist after the explosive reveal.
One person wrote: “OMG Phil and Keanu are working together I did not see that coming."
A second tweeted: "Keanu & Phil are actually secretly working together? Total double cross which no one would of ever seen coming that's for sure.
“Hope it's not a double double cross & Keanu only playing Phil? That's just way too complicated even for Albert Square lol."
A third exclaimed: "I AM BUZZING KEANU AND PHIL ARE WORKING TOGETHER OMG”.
“NOW THAT IS A HELL OF A DOOF DOOF….KEANU AND PHIL WORKING TOGETHER. BRAVO BRAVO EASTENDERS,” someone else said.
Another viewer added: "Wow Keanu & Phill working together”.
Keanu exited Walford over Christmas 2019, after he was discovered to have cheated on Louise Mitchell, who was pregnant at the time, with Sharon, who also fell pregnant.
Martin Fowler had been blackmailed to kill Keanu, however he let him escape as he faked his death.
Keanu returned from being on the run two months later, seeking revenge on Phil, which led to an explosive showdown between the nemeses in a boat crash that killed Sharon’s son Archie, and Keanu went on the run again.
Phil has already got embroiled in a physical row with Keanu following his return this month — but it was revealed on Thursday that this was all just a cover for the pair’s plot against DCI Keeble.
This latest twist comes after it was reported that actor Danny Walters has signed up for a full-time return to EastEnders.
Speaking about his reprised role, Danny said: “When I got the call and he told me about the storylines, [executive producer Chris Clenshaw] was teasing some – his vision is incredible.
“So, when I heard what he wanted Keanu to do I couldn’t help but want to come back.
“And I feel very privileged to come back on such an iconic episode. The way I play him moving forwards it is a new type of character, it is exciting.”
