LEWIS Butler won’t be able to escape the consequences of his actions for much longer.
Sadly, before anybody could be on to him, the Walford troublemaker had to go through hell, from watching his marriage with Callum Highway break down to a horrific overdose on the streets.
Coming up, Ben is finally discharged from hospital after emotional recovery scenes but his father Phil (Steve McFadden) knows there’s still along road ahead of him.
As soap fans may remember, the Albert Square tough guy was told Ben was raped by Kathy Beale and he initially had the idea of getting revenge.
Kathy, however, thought the best thing to do was to wait and report Lewis to the police for Ben’s sake.
Phil tries to look for a solution to help his son heal and he meets up with DCI Samantha Keeble, asking her to throw the book at Lewis.
He sadly realises that may be harder than it seems.

But as she gets ready to go, with a wary Kat Slater keeping an eye on her, Zack Hudson (James Farrar) calls her with some good news – he’s found Lewis.
Viewers may remember the blonde bombshell was adamant on finding Lewis herself in a bid to get her brother’s trust again.
This prompted her to ask for help and the chef obliged, although he was initially reluctant to take part in her plan.
Once she learns Zack has found Lewis, Sam drives away with him to get the villain, with a gun in her bag.
In later scenes, Phil is shocked when his younger sister, armed with his gun, tells him Lewis is tied up in the boot of the car.
Sam announces it’s time for the Mitchells to avenge Ben and drives a reluctant Phil to a warehouse.
Is this the end for Lewis?
Or will he live to see another day?
