After Karin Smart arrived on the scene earlier this week - in search of Phil Mitchell, who viewers quickly learned she had something of a history with - she wasted no time in setting her sights on Max Branning, played by Jake Wood.
Viewers have already seen them sharing a passionate kiss during what was initially supposed to be a business deal, and this week Karin arrives at Max’s place with some seriously bad news.
Karin has some bad news for Max
Arriving just as Max is emerging from the shower (with one of our favourite soap clichés of a ‘towel slewn casually over around a man’s shoulders’ for no good reason’ in full swing), Karin tells the shady businessman that the police are on the case over the stolen cars.
Max immediately tries to get hold of Phil, but is forced to think fast and come up with an alternative plan when it becomes clear that he isn’t available to help.
How will Max react to Karin's warning?
However, this is ‘EastEnders’ and there’s a twist in the tale and all is not what it seems…
“The character is really fun and she is a bit naughty - surprise surprise,” Denise admitted of her character last week. “I thought she is going to go into The Square and stir things up a little bit.”
Watch these scenes unfold in ‘EastEnders’ on Monday, 27 April.
