Lucas abandons Chelsea at the airport in EastEnders to go it alone

But is all as it seems?

As the impending job looms, Chelsea frets as Caleb arrives with an extra package to carry, once again threatening Chelsea to make sure all goes to plan.

When she overhears that a vet is needed at Karen’s, Chelsea offers her expensive watch for Mitch to pawn. A good deed amongst all her wrongdoings.

At the airport, as they approach security, Lucas takes Chelsea’s case. This is her mess to clear up, so she can do the job or walk away. It's her choice.

As Chelsea pleads with her dad, Lucas remains firm and she watches her case go through the scanner. But when it’s shunned sideways for inspection, a security guard opens her case and Chelsea prepares for the truth to be revealed.
