Does Padma die on 'The Resident'?
Fans worried about Padma's fate received the answer that they were looking for during episode 3 of the sixth season of The Resident. For context, Padma, who is the sister of Leela Devi (Anuja Joshi), has had fans biting their nails as she battled through a twin pregnancy. When it was shared that Padma would need a C-section, fans knew that there was a potential for the results to be catastrophic.
Thankfully, episode 3 showed us that Padma's resolve, plus the expert work of her medical professional sister, helped conduct the C-section without a fault and delivered Padma's babies.
Naturally, fans took to social media in the wake of the episode airing to share their relief over the positive outcome of it all.
"Leela just saved Padma's life! Thank you, sister," wrote one overjoyed Twitter user.
"I’m glad the twins and Padma are okay," chimed in another.
"I don't know why I feel Padma's gonna give one of her twins to Leela and so the whole plot of her and Devon's possible children will start again," speculated a third user.
It seems as though only time will tell how Padma's journey as a mother progresses. However, if one thing is clear, its that Leela will undoubtedly be playing a huge role in the twins' lives going forward on the show.
