Meeting up with an ex is never fun, but Rhona (Zoe Henry) is about to face the mother of all Emmerdale reunions, pardon the pun.
Her and Marlon’s relationship has been getting better, and now that he has begun to gradually put Paddy (Dominic Brunt) back on track, Marlon can once again give his family his whole attention. He makes plans for lunch with Rhona to show her that she is important to him.
He hurries to create their special occasion, but just as they start to enjoy their midday romance, Rhona’s ex-husband Gus interrupts them.
It’s awkward all around, so Rhona decides to see him later. Nevertheless, it soon becomes clear that Gus fully intended for the unintended “bump into” to occur. He has a secret agenda.
As they reunite later, Gus reveals the shocking fact that he tracked Rhona down to ask her a crucial question in order to get her consent to utilise one of the frozen embryos, which Rhona had previously assumed had been destroyed.
Rhona is very stunned by the request and even more appalled to discover what he has been doing behind her back, which includes going to the clinic and representing her.
So even though he’s asking for permission, the procedure is already well under way. Rhona is left to make the hardest choice of her life.
Will she destroy it, or will she consent to his having her child?
