EastEnders spoilers follow.
Phil Mitchell and Kat Slater have officially tied the knot in EastEnders – but not without some dark twists.
In the run-up to Thursday's (September 21) episode, Phil has been desperately trying to keep the truth from coming out about his recent fling with Emma Harding.
Meanwhile, Kat had asked Alfie to walk her down the aisle, only for Alfie's prostatectomy procedure to be scheduled on the same day.
Alfie tried to get out of going to the wedding by confiding in Phil about the conflict, though Phil warned him he'd only keep his secret if Alfie would do the same for him.
Alfie had little choice but to agree, leaving Kat desperately concerned when Phil turned up at the registry office without Alfie later in the day.
While Kat initially demanded to know where Alfie was, Phil kept his mouth shut and, in spite of her doubts, she ultimately agreed to go through with the ceremony.
After Phil and Kat were pronounced husband and wife, they headed over to the Vic where dark secrets continued to linger over their wedding reception.
The power even cut out right in the middle of the party – and while that may have seemed like an omen for Phil – the guests kept the reception going by candlelight.
Phil still had one major problem on his hands because Keanu knew about his secret and was planning to use it to his advantage to get access to his daughter Peggy.
In desperation, Phil resorted to his old gangster tactics by threatening that he'd kill Keanu in cold blood if his rival told Kat his secret.
Keanu backed off, leaving Phil feeling like he'd finally put his secrets to rest – but will it really be so simple?
