As we reported earlier this week, Dodger Savage is set to come to Maxine Minniver’s rescue when she gets trapped in a fire at the Loft, but when he then saves her again when she finds herself homeless, will she fall for her Knight in shining armour?
Maxine is due for one of the worst weeks of her life, and considering that in the past she has been kidnapped, drugged and had attempts on her life made, things this time must be pretty bad.
First of all Maxine (Nicki Sanderson) finds herself trapped inside the Loft nightclub with Sinead O’Connor (Stephanie Davis), when Freddie Roscoe (Charlie Clapham) carries out instructions from his boss Trevor Royle (Greg Wood) to torch the place down.
Luckily for her Dodger Savage (Danny Mac) is on hand to save the day, as he braves the flames, risking his own life to save the girls.
Getting Maxine out first he rushes back to get Sinead, but the intensity of the fire means he has to abort his mission and leave it to the experts, who end up carrying her lifeless body out of the burning building, leaving fans wondering whether or not she will survive.
And as if nearly dying in the worst possible way isn’t bad enough, Maxine then has to face the hard-face of her best friend Ash’s mother, who tells her she is no longer welcome to stay at their house, making Maxine homeless.
Alone and hopeless Maxine’s mood is lifted when Dodger comes to sweep her off her feet, asking her if she would like a drink with him.
Could this be the start of a new romance? Well considering that Maxine used to be in a relationship with Dodger’s biological dad Patrick (Jeremy Sheffield), we think the answer is almost certainly going to be yes – nothing says love like the phrase ‘that’s not how your dad did it’ after all!
