Devastated by the thought that he is a killer, Keegan Baker makes plans to exit Walford for good as EastEnders airs more dramatic scenes for him. Seething with rage at a yob who had defaced a poster of his late friend Shakil Kazemi, Keegan pursued him with a knife.
During a struggle, Keegan was left frightened to realise he had drawn blood and the reality of what he was doing hit home. Having fled the scene, he was later told by Shakils mother Carmel that the boy in question had died – so could he now go down for murder?
Keegan is overwhelmed and when he admits to Karen what he has done, she urges him to go on the run as his life will be over if the police catch up with him. Bernie is horrified by this advice but Keegan sets about packing a bag and grabbing a passport.
However, his conscience is never far away and he then makes the decision to turn himself into the police for murder. As he arrives at the station and says that he has killed someone, he is taken in for questioning – but will he end up going down following the shocking confession?
Are we about to say goodbye to Zack Morris character as he prepares to either serve a prison sentence or flee Walford for good? Agonised that he has put another family through what Shakils loved ones are enduring, Keegan will be left distraught either way.
It remains to be seen whether Keegan will go down but the scenes will also lead to Carmel departing as Bonnie Langfords last episode airs. As she heads around Walford dishing out sentimental belongings of Shakils to loved ones, she says her final farewells to Kush.
But can she and Keegan make peace before she goes – if he isnt languishing in a cell or on the run?
