TV Soap - - Cable Guide -

The dev­as­tat­ing af­ter-shock of Shakil Kazemi’s gang-re­lated stab­bing mur­der are still haunt­ing Al­bert Square weeks af­ter the tragic teen was laid to rest. Sharon is feel­ing the com­mu­nity’s pain more than most with her 12-year-old son Den­nis also be­com­ing en­tan­gled with a lo­cal gang. To Sharon’s re­lief, garage me­chanic

Keanu, who works for her hus­band Phil at The Arches, has gone out of his way to pro­tect Den­nis from the gang’s in uence. Nev­er­the­less, the rebel’s been in­tent on de­fy­ing his mother, and Keanu’s warn­ings and the fear of her son be­ing in­jured or killed has pro­pelled Sharon to hide what’s go­ing on from Phil. She’s keenly aware his no­to­ri­ous bad tem­per would ex­plode and cause more harm than good if he knew!

Fate­fully, the truth emerges when Phil senses Den­nis’s awk­ward be­hav­iour on see­ing the gang again. Sus­pi­cious, he quizzes Keanu who keeps mum – only for his mother Karen to let slip the de­tails. Fu­ri­ous, Phil blus­ters at Sharon for keep­ing him in the dark and then ies into a rage when Keanu de­fends her choice to stay silent, sack­ing him from the garage!

In the af­ter­math of the out­burst, Sharon’s ef­forts to make peace with Phil are met with his stony si­lence, leav­ing her to apol­o­gise to Keanu for what’s hap­pened. Sex­ual sparks are soon ying be­tween Mrs Mitchell and the young stud and a ruf­fled Sharon con des to best friend Linda that she’s been irt­ing with a younger man. Her ag­i­ta­tion is even more ev­i­dent fol­low­ing other close calls... be­fore Sharon pon­ders Keanu’s in­vi­ta­tion for drinks.

Try­ing to dis­tance her­self and fo­cus on her mar­riage, Sharon re­alises that es­cap­ing the temp­ta­tion that cute Keanu of­fers won’t be as easy as she’s mak­ing out. TVS
