Davinder 'Nugget' Gulati (Juhaim Rasul Choudhury) fled Walford in tonight's EastEnders (21st September), haunted by the revelation that his father Ravi Gulati (Aaron Thiara) is a killer.
Ravi's stepmother, Suki Panesar (Balvinder Sopal), told Nugget that Ravi killed his adoptive father - and Nugget's grandfather - Ranveer (Anil Goutam). This came after Suki discovered that she was not responsible for the death herself, and swore revenge.
With Nugget taking refuge at Suki's after confronting his dad, Ravi arrived to try and bully his way in. When Suki claimed Nugget wasn't there, and stood up to him, Ravi reminded her of his continued threats to her imprisoned son Kheerat (Jaz Deol), who had been sent down for his crime.
But Suki told him that she had spoken to detective Jack Branning (Scott Maslen), who had arranged for Kheerat to be moved so that Ravi could no longer get to him. Ravi insisted that he could find Kheerat, but Suki maintained that she would dedicate her life's work to stopping him.
Sending Ravi on his way, Suki consoled a terrified Nugget. As Nugget shared happy memories of his grandfather, he asked Suki if Ravi's guilt was certain. Suki replied that Ravi had indeed killed Ranveer, and Nugget sobbed.
As the night wore on, Ravi returned, asking if Suki had heard from Nugget. She lied once more, and refused to offer him any more information. But once shutting the door on Ravi, Suki found that Nugget was gone.
