Rough jus­tice

OUT­RAGED AT THE EASE WITH WHICH Rakesh HAS ESCAPED PROSECUTION FOR THE FIRE THAT PARALYSED Ni­cola, Jimmy LASHES OUT WITH DEADLY CON­SE­QUENCES!

Soap World - - PRIMETIME UK - SW

Sev­eral months ago, a fi­nan­cially strapped Rakesh burned down Mill Cot­tage to claim on the in­sur­ance, only for the plan to dras­ti­cally back­fire when Ni­cola King was trapped in­side. She was ul­ti­mately left par­tially paralysed from her in­juries. Since then, Rakesh has care­fully dodged prosecution for the crime. Although the Kings ex­torted com­pen­sa­tion out of the Sharma fam­ily when they learned of Rakesh’s guilt, Ni­cola’s hus­band Jimmy still isn’t sat­is­fied he’s been prop­erly pun­ished for the crime.

In her pow­er­ful new po­si­tion at the con­fec­tionery fac­tory which she gained as part of her com­pen­sa­tion pack­age, Ni­cola (Ni­cola Wheeler) en­joys rid­ing roughshod over the Sharma fam­ily, and doesn’t hes­i­tate to in­sult Priya (Fiona Wade). Rakesh (Pasha Bo­carie) is in­censed by Ni­cola’s treat­ment of his wife. But Ni­cola re­gains the up­per hand when Rakesh and Priya go pub­lic with their se­cret ro­man­tic re­union. Dis­gusted to know how quickly Priya took Rakesh back af­ter dis­cov­er­ing he lit the fire, Ni­cola forces her to leave the fac­tory.

The shell-shocked Priya and Rakesh plot to leave the vil­lage when Rakesh is of­fered a job in the Philip­pines, but an an­gry Jimmy (Nick Miles) ru­ins the move when he tells David (Matthew Wolfenden), father of Priya’s daugh­ter Amba – and des­per­ate to stop Priya from tak­ing their child away – that Rakesh started the fire. With David con­tem­plat­ing whether to call the po­lice, Rakesh and Priya opt to stay in the vil­lage, out­rag­ing Ni­cola, who cas­ti­gates Jimmy for ru­in­ing her chances to be rid of them for good.

Up­set by Ni­cola’s char­ac­ter as­sas­si­na­tion, Jimmy de­cides to prove he has hat it takes to be a tough guy by bash­ing and kid­nap­ping Rakesh! Hold­ing him pris­oner, Jimmy tries taunt­ing Rakesh into leav­ing the vil­lage and threat­ens to burn him alive, just like he did to Ni­cola! Ul­ti­mately, Jimmy can’t go through with it. Free­ing him­self from his bonds, Rakesh lunges at Jimmy and the bru­tal fight only ends when Rakesh plunges from a se­cond-storey win­dow!

Hear­ing the com­mo­tion, Ni­cola and Priya rush to the scene and see Rakesh ly­ing life­less on the ground. Look­ing up at the win­dow, Ni­cola pan­ics to see Jimmy star­ing back at her, as­sum­ing he’s killed Rakesh!
