Despite the fact the pair managed to get the cash they needed, it showed Ben clearly could struggle if the same were to happen again.
With Danny also bound to be back in Walford to seek revenge, could Ben find himself in some serious danger if he refuses to listen to those around him?
Tying in with his other half Callum Highway (Tony Clay) entering into the police force, it seems it might be the only decision to keep the pair together.
Could Ben be forced to rethink his career options for the future and try something less dangerous in order to save his skin?
EastEnders returns later this year to BBC One.
