At the start of the week, Kheerat is a wanted man and on the run. But he returns home just long enough to tell the rest of his family that, because the police are trying to track him down, he needs to leave the Square for good.

Just as he’s about to depart, Kheerat bumps into Stacey and the two of them share a passionate kiss before saying their goodbyes. Whitney then turns up and pleads for his help in protecting Chelsea but he refuses.

However, after spotting an exchange between Gray and Denise, Kheerat ultimately decides to head to the hospital to warn Chelsea. But there’s no saying he’ll get there in time…
