But will they get caught?
As the search for Albie continues, the residents of Walford join the police in an attempt to track him down.
Meanwhile, at No.43, Sharon conceals the £50,000 ransom note from the police as she fears for Albie’s safety, before revealing all to Kat and Phil who agree to lend Sharon the money to pay the kidnapper.
Fuming at Keanu, Karen worries about the consequences of the fake kidnapping before secretly dropping a second ransom note detailing a time and location for the cash.
As Sharon reasons they must go along with the kidnapper’s wishes for fear they’ll hurt Albie, Phil suggests he’ll drop the money and deal with the low life that took him.
Refusing, Keanu wants to do the drop, but Phil insists on going with him. Are Keanu's actions about to be rumbled? Consumed with worry, Keanu and Karen try to find a way to return Albie to Sharon.
Soon, Sharon receives a text from Karen via Keanu’s burner phone, requesting to drop off the £50,000 at the park at midday, but it must be done alone.
