Dev Alahan has of course been keeping a constant vigil at his estranged wife Sunita’s bedside as she’s been fighting for her life following the inferno at the Rovers, which was started deliberately by Karl Munro…

However, in the episode that airs on April 1, Dev (Jimmi Harkishin) dares to hope that Sunita (Shobna Gulati) could pull through when the doctors phone him to say that she’s showing signs of regaining consciousness!

A delighted Dev can’t wait to share the news with his friends and neighbours, all of whom are pleased that Sunita could come round…

All that is except for arsonist Karl (John Michie) who knows that Sunita is the only person who knows the truth about what happened at the pub…

So with that in mind, he makes his next cunning move by sneaking into Sunita’s hospital room and placing the keys in her hand – to get her fingerprints on them – before hiding them in her bedside locker!

On April 3, though Dev’s still optimistic that Sunita will pull through – especially when her eyelids flicker – he’s horrified when the police tell him that as Sunita had the spare keys to the pub among her belongings, they’re sure she started the fire.

But Dev tells them that as soon as Sunita wakes up and is on the mend, she’ll be able to tell them what really happened as he continues to deny that she could possibly have been responsible.

However, later that day, soon after Dev steps out of Sunita’s hospital room, she takes a turn for the worse and the doctor has to tell a stunned Dev that she’s dead.

Things get yet worse for Dev when, on April 5, the police visit and put to him their theory that not only did Sunita start the fire deliberately, but also that she intended to kill herself in the process…

Poor Dev is then left trying to figure out how to explain to his and Sunita’s children the accusations the police are making about their dead mother.

Don’t miss that drama next week, but for now, here’s a reminder of Dev’s fury in last night’s episode…
