EASTENDERS viewers are convinced Phil Mitchell is going to kill his son Ben after Kat Slater dropped him in it over the assault.
The cleaner was forced to think fast when Phil remembered she was there the night he was attacked and, after taking the blame to save Stacey, Kat all but confirmed Ben was involved.
Ben had covered up Stacey’s crime in an attempt to frame Keanu, but Kat’s words made it sound like Ben orchestrated everything.
Breaking into the Slaters to confront Kat, Phil told her: “It’s all come back to me, you laughing me at the Vic rubbing my nose in it for the 50 grand.
“And then we got back to The Arches, I had Martin pinned down and someone whacked me from behind. You tried to stone my head in. You cost me my daughter.
“You wrecked my family, you think I’m going to let you forget that.”
But as he forced Kat to tell him what she meant by her not being to blame, he promised to spare her family from his rage if she spat it out.
And she did, dropping Ben right in it.
She told him: “That Ben of yours – he’s only out for himself. Don’t trust him.”
Earlier Phil had tried to catch Ben out with lies with Jay after overhearing them rowing in the hospital.
Jay covered for him by telling him Ben had just broken down but didn’t want to admit he was upset to his dad, but viewers know the truth.
But with Kat pointing the blame at Ben, viewers are now convinced Phil will go after Ben and decide to kill him after previously leaving him to get beaten up by homophobic thugs.
One wrote: “YES KAT! Pin it on Ben! Smart move That’s how the Slaters do it!”
A second said: “I’m excited in my happy place just imagining what Phil will do to Ben.”

Another added: “Never mind Keanu Ben might be the one doing a runner once Phil gets a hold of him.”
