Christian (John Partridge) sparks a terrible chain of events in an upcoming episode when he decides to take matters into his own hands when it comes to Danny (Gary Lucy), who continues to cause trouble in the next few days.
The drama begins when Christian discovers that Danny is hassling Syed (Marc Elliott) to pay back all of the cash he advanced him during his recent financial woes.
Keen to sort this out once and for all, Christian secretly uses his husband's phone to trick Danny into meeting him at the boxing gym. As the pair come face-to-face, Christian warns Danny to stop putting so much pressure on Syed for the repayments - he'll get the cash when it's ready.
However, Christian is completely unprepared for a big bombshell from Danny, who reveals that his encounters with Syed went much further than just a kiss - they slept together.
Showing his nasty side further, Danny taunts Christian by declaring that he isn't the right guy for Syed, who'll never be happy with a cosy domestic set-up. Christian finally loses his temper in response, knocking the banker to the floor with a punch…
Christian is left badly beaten when Danny fights back, but he later lies to Syed by saying that he was the victim of a homophobic attack. He also fails to reveal to Syed that he knows what really happened between him and Danny.
Later in the week, however, a vengeful Danny causes yet more trouble for the couple by reporting Christian to the police for assault.
Syed is stunned when his partner is arrested and hauled down to the police station, but the pieces of the puzzle fall together when he discovers that Danny is involved.
When Syed hears that Danny has told Christian the truth about what really happened between them, it highlights the lack of trust and communication between the newly-married couple as Christian still hasn't said anything about what he knows.
Unfortunately for Syed, there is little time for reflection as Danny vows to press charges against Christian unless he gets his money back within the next few hours. Will a guilt-ridden Syed be able to help Christian in time?
EastEnders airs these scenes all next week on BBC One.
