Pregnant teenager Louise Mitchell decided to have an abortion during Friday’s episode, after making a discovery about boyfriend Keanu Taylor.
The character overheard dad Phil telling Keanu how he was paying him to date her, in a bid to protect her from Danny and his men who were recently after him.
But Keanu has since developed feelings for Louise, and after finding out she was pregnant he decided to make things work.
Louise’s discovery left her devastated though, and she dumped Keanu while also claiming she wasn’t really pregnant.
She later confided in her stepmother Sharon, who had been having an affair with the mechanic last year yet to be revealed.
Keanu went to the house to speak with Louise, only for Sharon to answer the door and claim she wasn’t in.
A devastated Keanu feared he’d messed everything up, and was seen crying on a bench in the Square, unaware of the truth.
Back home, Sharon entered the kitchen and told Louise she had booked an appointment at the abortion clinic for her, on her request.
She said: “Everything is gonna be okay. They can see you after your exam on Monday. In a couple of days it will all be over.”
While viewers were gutted Louise had decided not to go through with the pregnancy, they were left furious with Sharon for lying to Keanu.
Others accused her of trying to get back at Keanu by helping Louise, amid her supporting her stepdaughter and her decision.
One viewer said: “Sharon’s quick to support the abortion, not something that should be done on a light decision.”
Another said: “Eurgh Sharon is so sneaky,” as a third commented: “#EastEnders bet Sharon is lapping all this up. She'll manipulate Louise into hating Keanu.”
EastEnders airs Mondays and Fridays at 8pm, and Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7:30pm on BBC One.
