EASTENDERS fans were left scratching their heads earlier this week after Sharon Mitchell said police were looking for Keanu Taylor but they had the wrong man.
On Friday night, EastEnders fans were left confused after BBC One aerated a scene between Sharon Mitchell (played by Letitia Dean) and Linda Carter (Kellie Bright). The two ladies sat in the cafe talking about baby Kayden when Sharon made a startling revelation.
The soap marked its 35th-anniversary last month with a horrific incident involving a boat.
Seeing Dennis Mitchell (Bleu Landau) trapped inside a locker room on the boat in a series of flashback episodes aired over a week, his death sadly confirmed hours later when The search and rescue stripped his body of the rubble.
Understandably, Sharon's not doing well, only going through the daily motions, just trying to live after losing her beloved son.
Sitting next to her in the café with Kayden in the pram, Linda paused for a coffee
"Oh, oh," Linda said, gently rubbing Sharon's arm before turning her attention to the newborn: "Isn't he beautiful! There, dear Sharon.
"What are you then? Last week I wanted to come over but Mick thought you got my messages?"There was no one I could face," she commented, but Linda continued: "You seemed washed out.
"Don't know when I last fell asleep. When I close my eyes, Denny and that boat, and all that water, are all I can see. I can't get it out of my head,' said Sharon.
"Dear Linda, I'm so tired," she started to cry. "The family liaison officer said that the police were looking for Keanu, but it's Phil they should be after." Not listening, Sharon clarified to her best friend: "I keep thinking I can cope…" "Let me help," Linda begged before clarifying: "I'm never drinking, Sharon always assures Mick that I'm off the liquor." I won't take him somewhere and you're definitely going to be there.
The aspect that most shocked viewers was Sharon's statement on police looking for Keanu Taylor (Danny Walters) Many will recall how Keanu and Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) engulfed the boat in a brutal fight when the gun went off.
Instead, as a result, the boat ended up heading in a different direction causing it to crash into another vessel.
Could this be Sharon's bluff and in reality, she's working with Phil to protect her and her baby's future by blaming the wrong man? Taking Twitter to comment, one said: "The police are looking for Keanu, but after ' yes QUEEN, they should be Phil!
