EastEnders’ Karen in danger as she becomes serial killer Lucas’ next target

EastEnders favourite Karen Taylor (Lorraine Stanley) will find herself in danger next week after she agrees to go on a date with serial killer Lucas Johnson (Don Gilet).

The Albert Square laundrette worker flirts outrageously with Lucas in upcoming scenes, not knowing who is really is.

Lucas overhears her Chelsea Fox (Zarah Abraham) arguing with Jack Branning (Scott Malsen), insisting that the police detective can't resist her.

The reformed drug addict-turned-preacher accuses his daughter of bullying Jack but she reminds him that if the job goes wrong, her evil ex Caleb Malone (Ben Freeman) will kill her.

Lucas can’t believe how easily she’s lied but Chelsea retorts that after Monday, they don’t have to see each other again.

He later asks for Karen’s name and she invites him for a drink the following night.

Lucas happily obliges but he introduces himself as Jordan, the name of his dead son.

Bernie and Mitch question an excited Karen about her date with mystery man 'Jordan' and they ask for a picture.

Meanwhile Lucas’ probation worker tells him they’ve found him a job and a flat in Newcastle but he declines and says he wants to stay with his family.

At the date, Karen snaps a sneaky picture whilst Lucas’ back is turned and sends it to the family chat.

Things don't quite go to plan on the date and Lucas later makes another call introducing himself as Jordan once again.

Later in the week, Lucas goes to a job interview but his interviewee Caleb can’t be fooled so easily.

He quickly realises Lucas is Chelsea’s dad and insults her.

Lucas loses his cool and Caleb explains that he’s not the one that can’t be trusted and he’d better be at "work" on Monday or else.
