Sam Mitchell (Kim Medcalf) could find herself staring down the barrel of a gun in EastEnders when her plan to kidnap Lewis Butler (Aidan O’Callaghan) backfires dramatically.
The nightclub manager, as viewers know, is keen to get back into Phil’s (Steve McFadden) good books, after he found out that she’d been selling drugs in Peggy’s.
With Ben (Max Bowden) having nearly died after an overdose, Phil held his sister personally responsible and ordered her to get out of his house.
Sam, however, had a plan up her sleeve, hoping to track down Lewis – the man who raped Ben – knowing that Phil would naturally want revenge on him.
She reckoned this would be her way to win back her brother’s trust and prove her loyalty to the Mitchells, but with partner in crime Zack Hudson (James Farrar) having failed to locate Lewis, she accepted her fate, deciding to leave the Square.
Zack, however, called her at the conclusion of Monday’s (August 15) edition of the BBC One soap, revealing that he’d caught Lewis!
Delighted, Sam instructed him to pick her up, and upon doing so, it was revealed that she had a gun in her handbag!
Sam and Zack then drove off to retrieve Lewis, setting the scene for the next episode, which will be one you simply don’t want to miss.
Phil is left in shock as Sam relays word of her actions to him – and he’s well and truly stunned when he finds Lewis tied up in the boot of the car!
The hard-man pulls his sister aside when they arrive at the disused warehouse, hoping to have it out with her and find out what she’s got planned.
Things, however, go awry, as Lewis escapes from the boot! To complicate matters further, he makes off with Phil’s gun!
Will the rapist shoot Sam or Phil in a bid to make it out of this with his life still intact?
EastEnders airs these scenes on Tuesday August 16 at 7:30pm on BBC One, or stream the next episode on BBC iPlayer right now.
