EastEnders fans fear Rat could die of a drug overdose after he collapsed.
He’d been riding on an Underground train with Tiffany and Bernadette when police got on to search the carriage.
Tiffany panicked when she couldn’t find the drugs in her bag, unaware that Rat had taken them when she wasn’t looking.
The police ended up searching Bernadette and questioned Rat as he sat looking a little shifty and sipping a bottle of water.
In the end, the trio tried to get away from the police and Rat collapsed to the floor in agony in the Tube station.
Fans fear he may have taken the drugs, and that he could die.

Tiffany guessed he’d taken the drugs
One theorised: "Rat swallowed the drugs"
And another said: "hope Rat is ok??"
While another commented: "Rat ate the stuff. What a dingbat."
"Poor rat boy I bet he swallowed the drugs," another guessed.
At the same time, fans were left baffled by the absence of the Hunter and Mel storyline, and the fallout from whether or not he shot himself.
Bernie was worried
They’d been trying to get away from the police
They asked when they were going to find out what happened.
One said: "WTF? EastEnders do we have to wait til next year to find out what happened to Mel and Hunter? Has Rat eaten them both"
Another asked: "Have they forgot about hunter shooting himself or something ?"
And another said: "Have Mel and Hunter taken a holiday, had the ‘tense’ scenes from last week, got to them?"

He ran through the station
But collapsed in agony
"Another EastEnders episode where we don’t know what’s happened to Mel and Hunter," one wrote.
When the show returned for a second episode, Bernie screamed at Tiffany to call an ambulance after realising he must have taken the drugs.
Rat was later seen returning home from the hospital with Tiffany and Evie.
And he faced backlash from Bernie after she realised he’d faked his collapse to avoid getting arrested.
* EastEnders returns on Monday at 8pm on BBC
