In next week’s episodes of Coronation Street, Dev Alahan (Jimmi Harkishin) unwittingly puts himself in killer Karl Munro’s sights as he becomes ever more determined to prove that his dead wife Sunita didn’t start the fire at the Rovers…
And of course, she didn’t; Karl (John Michie) did, and there’s a good chance he killed Sunita in cold blood – it’s been suggested that he interfered with her breathing tube as she lay in intensive care, where she of course then died – and that he could kill again in order to save his own skin!
The drama begins on Monday, June 3 when Dev once again listens to his children’s insistence that their mum was a good person and couldn’t have done anything so terrible.
With their words ringing in his ears, Dev decides to talk about with the other residents of the street to try and find out as much as he can about Sunita’s last hours…
All the while, Karl tries to talk Dev out of his conviction that she was innocent, however, when Dev finds Sunita’s phone, he tells Karl that he’s going to take it to the police in the hope that they can uncover evidence on it.
In the episode that airs on Wednesday, June 5, a determined Dev quizzes Paul (Tony Hirst) about the fire, however Paul and Eileen (Sue Cleaver) are upset by the reminder of Toni’s death.
Witnessing this, Karl begs Dev to stop, claiming that his bringing it all up again is upsetting Stella (Michelle Collins) too. However, when it’s clear that Dev won’t be swayed, his friends on the street begin to worry about his mental state, which is a concern that Karl’s more than happy to propagate.
By the time we see the double-bill of episodes that air on Friday, June 7, Dev calls at No.4 and quizzes Sally (Sally Dynevor) and Sophie (Brooke Vincent) about Sunita’s last movements. However, they’re unnerved by his intensity, and Sally eventually asks him to leave.
Will Dev leave it alone now? Or will he persist, prompting Karl to take murderous action in order to keep his guilty secret? Find out next week!
For now, here’s a look at this week’s drama… *Video to follow soon!
