In Coronation Street, Zeeman Nazir (Qassim Akhtar) has been feeling the heat from father-in-law Hashmi, but he wasn’t as hot as poor Stu tonight.
With Hashim’s demand for cash ringing in Zeedan’s head, it was advised that he set fire to the restaurant in order to get the insurance money.
He went forward with the plan despite his reservations, oblivious to the fact that Stu was hiding behind him.
A crowd gathered outside as the fire progressed, and Zeeman was shocked to learn from Yasmeen Nazir (Shelley King) that Stu might be inside.
Zeedan waded into the inferno and saved Stu as he coughed and fell to the floor, but will he survive?
As the mystery of what caused the fire grew, Alya (Sair Khan) became increasingly concerned about Zeedan’s involvement.
When he later revealed the truth, she was disgusted, and Yasmeen watched and waited for any updates on Stu’s condition.
Alya raged at Zeedan, accusing him of destroying the family and threatening to report him to the authorities if Stu died.
Hashim is still wanting money – or Zeedan’s blood, so a jail cell would be preferable for Zeedan.
Will Zeedan’s calculated gamble pay off? Is he on his way to prison, or possibly a coffin?
It’s reasonable to say he’ll come to regret his actions…
