In last night’s episode it all came to a head as he and Denny (Bleu Landau) received a beating, but luckily Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) turned up in the nick of time.
However, the effects of the attack will still be felt as Keanu lashes out in Monday’s episode.
He returns home to the Taylor household but his family want to know how he got his injuries.
Spoilers pictures released by the soap ahead of the episode show his mum Karen (Lorraine Stanley) looking concerned while Bernadette (Clair Norris) laughs at the incident.
But things soon take a turn for the worse for the troubled mechanic as he lashes out in frustration.
In a fit of rage, Keanu ends up punching a massive hole in one of the doors of the flat.
Keanu found himself involved after Denny turned to him for help when the schoolboy found himself caught up in transporting stolen mobile phones and drugs for the gang.
Last night’s instalment saw Keanu take a beating for Denny, who also got hurt in the carnage.
Although the pair were saved when Phil came through and gave the boys a good Mitchell seeing to.
Confronting the gang, Phil managed to launch one of them over a fence and even kneed another in the groin.
And while the group ran off sharpish, it doesn’t look like this is the end of Keanu and Denny’s troubles.
Rumours have been swirling that Keanu is set to embark on a steamy affair with Denny’s mum Sharon (Letitia Dean) and a teaser trailer for the show seems to confirm it.
Sharon can be seen confiding in Keanu as she worries about her parenting skills.
“Phil’s right, I’m a complete failure,” she blubs to Keanu.
He then grabs Sharon’s hand, indicating there’s more than friendship between them.
“I think they’re both very lucky to have you,” he says softly.
Subsequently, viewers may be set to see the unlikely couple grow very close over the coming weeks.
No doubt when Phil finds out, Keanu may get more than a few punches to the face.
Plus, the aftermath is sure to have a major impact on Denny who considers Keanu to be a friend.
EastEnders continues tomorrow at 8pm on BBC One.
