A chink in the armour?
Zainab lets her guard down momentarily with Syed. How will Christian react?
Masood and Zainab are trying to pretend that everything is ok infront of Tamwar. Zainab isn't feeling well but still goes to work at the Minute Mart. Syed arrives and, knowing that everything isn't ok with his parents, tries to suggest to Zainab that she and his father get some help but Zainab refuses forcing Syed to snap. Zainab starts to cry and for a moment they come together but Zainab pushes him away insisting she is fine. Christian is watching and thinks Zainab is being unfair to Syed, he interrupts them but is left hurt when Syed tells him to stay out of it.
An insider adds "Zainab is struggling to keep it together when she knows that her marriage is in crisis and when Syed arrives at the Minute Mart, trying to help, she breaks down. Not wanting to show how broken she is, she quickly composes herself and insists she is fine. Syed knows that she is a proud woman and doesn't want to let her guard down. Christian thinks this is just another example of Zainab taking advantage of Syed but he is shocked when Syed tells him to keep his nose out".
