Do you feel sorry for Dev - Yay or Nay?

Anyone feeling sorry for Devendra after last night's Coronation Street when Sunita left him?

'You haven't hurt me," Dev told Sunita. "You've angered me, disappointed me and made me look like a fool in front of my friends and neighbours.'

Well, that's as maybe. But if he'd paid Sunita a bit of attention and not been so patronising in his dealings with her, maybe he wouldn't be in this state now.

He's only got himself to blame, I reckon, so I'm not feeling sorry for him. It's a  Nay from me - what about you?

NAY, no self respect, Sunita just told him she has been regularly having sex with another man and she just doesnt love him, still he wants to forgive her, what a doormat!

Yay, nobody deserves to be treated like that.

I can quite understand that Dev drives Sunita to distraction. He suffocates her and simply doesn't listen to her. If she loved him, she'd shrug it off. I feel sorry for Dev that Sunita chose Karl as an escape route. If she'd become a great businesswoman, I'd have said 'serves you right'. So it's a Yay but it doesn't mean I want him hanging around. Please would all the Alahans leave now.

How can you feel sorry for a character that is so atrociously acted. Watching last night's episode after he found out was totally cringe-inducing, Dev sat there with a joker-like fixed smile on his face as he begged his unfaithful wife to come back to him. In the hands of a good actor it could have been extremely moving, yet this was just embarrassing.

I didn't think I would but I actually do. I thought him telling her he still wants her was a bit OTT but whatever. I can't wait for the custody battle (hopefully there'll be one) over the kids and Sunita will realize what she's acutally lost because we all know Karl is a low down dirty dog and will toss her to the curb. HA!
I loved the way Stella smacked Stella a good'un too.

Pathetic. He's pathetic. I know it usually takes two to break a marraige but Sunita was a loyal wife, getting fed up with being patronized and taken for granted. She may have loved him once but she was young and impresionable. After the first time they split, when she came back to him, I thought it was more about those old feelings rather than still really loving him. I guess i was right. she's grown up and realized she could have done better. But going to Karl? not better. Just an escape and she doesn't really love him either.

Nay. It's still Sunita that I feel sorry for. She's had to endure his neglect since they've been together. She's put up with him placing the kids, golf, the shop, and himself ahead of her for years

Nay, he's pathetic. Normally, I might have sympathy for that but he's such a caricature I can't stand him. Not funny, not sympathetic, not infuriating, not interesting. Time to go.

Yay, he may be an idiot, but
1. Sunita forced his daughter out of Weatherfield because she split Sophie and Sian up
2. Almost immediately after she started the affaird with Karl. If she didn't want to be with Dev she should have just left him.

Nope, I don't feel sorry for him.

Don't feel sorry for Sunita either.

I feel sorry that he can't act and has to take so many deep breaths while talking....

I think the ep was very well written (AND acted) in that it was impossible to take sides - I felt sorry for Dev but could understand Sunita's decision. Dev has done denial and bargaining, presume anger and acceptance are to follow.
