On Tuesday’s episode of Emmerdale (April 11), Paddy Kirk (Dominic Brunt) dropped into PampaManda, but he certainly wasn’t there for a haircut. He informed Mandy that he “polishes it himself now days” (Lisa Riley). He had really gone to the Woolpack to ask Mandy out to lunch. He said that since she had just done so much for him, he thought it was about time he did something kind for her.
Despite having zero clients scheduled for that day, Mandy went through her appointment book and informed him that she was fully booked and would have to decline his offer.
While Amelia (Daisy Campbell) saw everything, she questioned Mandy’s decision to reject Paddy. That was “difficult,” according to Mandy. She said that she didn’t think it was appropriate if Paddy began to rely only on her. Fans are aware that Mandy loves Paddy dearly and would want nothing more than for him to be dependent on her, but Paddy recently said that he believed they should just be friends. Mandy seems to have made the decision to put some space between them as a result.
Paddy was left to have lunch alone at the Woolpack as a result. He seemed to be in a completely other universe while seated in front of a pie that looked really scrumptious. When Marlon (Mark Charnock) questioned him about his meal, Paddy said that he had something on his mind but wasn’t in the mood to talk. He muttered, “I’m not very good company today,” as Marlon pulled out a seat for himself.
Behind the bar, Marlon spoke with Chas (Lucy Pargeter), who listened to his worries. Although though Liam (Jonny McPherson) and Bear (Joshua Richards) thought Paddy was adjusting well to living with them, he said he missed the conversations he used to have with Paddy.
Chas advised him to try her if he wanted to talk to someone. “Now days, I just have Eve (Bella James) to chat to. She doesn’t exactly like talking.
Marlon had to refuse since he needed to go and defuse a dispute at home involving Rhona (Zoe Henry) and Mary (Louise Jameson). Chas seemed a little dejected as a result, and as she gazed across the bar at Paddy poking at his croissant, she exhibited a melancholy air.
Chas’s predicament may be categorised under “she created her bed and now she has to lay in it.” After all, Chas and Paddy’s first breakup was caused by her inability to keep her hands off Al Chapman. If Al had not passed away before it could happen, she intended to divorce her husband and move in with Al and their daughter. She mostly deserves the loneliness and sadness she is now experiencing.
Nevertheless, there could be hope for Chas in forthcoming episodes when Paddy decides to spend more time with Chas and Eve out of worry for her. A warm family moment results in an embrace and passionate kiss between Chas and Paddy.
Will Paddy, however, agree to give their marriage another go when Chas begs for his forgiveness and urges him to permanently relocate to the Woolpack?
