In several interviews, Natalie J. Robb’s character Moira Barton discussed her feelings on Charity Dingle’s (Emma Atkins) engagement to Mackenzie Boyd (Lawrence Robb) in Emmerdale.
Mackenzie is more focused on the idea that Chloe (Jessie Elland) is nearly through with her pregnancy and will soon welcome their child into the world as the big day draws closer.
Soon, Mack will have to shift his focus elsewhere because this new video captures the moment he gives Moira, who has volunteered to be his best woman, the wedding rings.
As Nate (Jurell Carter) joins Mack, Moira and Charity are left alone together. As you can probably imagine, the conversation doesn’t exactly finish with them embracing and deciding to get together for a girlie talk later on.
Emma Atkins recently explained Charity’s disbelief when she finds that Moira has been chosen as Mack’s right-hand lady, saying, “She was thinking surely he would have picked Ryan or Nate over Moira!”
“They [Charity and Mack] go for this afternoon of tea and cake,” the author writes. “As they approach Nate and Moira, Charity and Mackenzie are approaching Nate and Moira, and he immediately passes the rings to Moira to look after. Moira then puts the rings in the pocket of her farming overalls, and I think Charity’s kind of like, “What the heck’s going on there?”.”
When Charity and Moira are alone, they reminisce about Mack when he was younger, and then the discussion shifts to wedding gifts.
As Emma noted, Moira retorts angrily to Charity when she offers to give The A Team a present.
‘”Look, why don’t you just choose the more straightforward beautiful gesture, something really small?” asks Moira. Why the necessity to take such extreme measures? That, as we see, pushes Charity over the limit. She becomes enraged by it and asks, “Are you saying I’m being too dramatic? Who or what are you attempting to reach? She is provoking Moira, which ultimately results in a heated quarrel. I’ll leave it to the audience to appreciate what she says to Moira about her marriage to Cain.
Emma said, “Charity feels she’s gone too far with her insults and goes to find Moira and finds her in the barn organizing these hay bales.”
‘Look, maybe I shouldn’t have said what I said,” she says, and Moira responds with something else that really, really riles Charity up. They end up getting into this strange physical altercation [laughs] and rolling around in these hay bales when, unbeknownst to Moira, her wedding rings fall out of her overalls. She then stands up and exclaims, “Oh! I’ve lost the rings!”
Then there is another argument. With the two, everything simply seems to be happening at once.
