Another very emotional week is expected for Emmerdale, with significant decisions made and massive truths revealed.
Following Reuben’s hospitalisation, Mackenzie Boyd (Lawrence Robb), worried for his son’s welfare, battles with Chloe Harris’ (Jessie Elland’s) refusal to allow him visit.
This tension, in typical Emmerdale form, lays the stage for the shocking revelation of Charity Dingle’s (Emma Atkins) boyfriend’s identity as Reuben’s father.
After kissing Mandy Dingle (Lisa Riley), Paddy Kirk (Dominic Brunt) struggles, and later scenes show him leaving the village for a man’s club.
Want a preview of the next drama badly?
We have four brand-new preview video of the events taking place in the village from May 8 to May 12 to keep you entertained until then since we figured you may be.
Thank you very much.
Mack finds it difficult to concentrate on his job up at the farm and confides in Nate his concerns about Rueben, who is still unwell in the hospital. Mack informs Nate that Chloe has instructed him to stay away, but Nate offers that he see his kid in the hospital.
Nate reiterates that he should go if he so chooses, advising that it would be better if he disclosed that he is Reuben’s father. But Mack is convinced that Charity won’t ever forgive him if the truth comes out, which puts him in a terrible situation.
After kissing Mandy, Paddy apologises, feeling as if he overstepped and not realising that Mandy is still harbouring affections for him.
Paddy’s sentiments come before hers as Mandy, a kind-hearted gentle woman, tells him that she perfectly understands why he did what he did. She then kisses Paddy on the forehead as they bid farewell to whatever potential future they could have had.
Is Paddy beginning to feel the same way for Mandy as she walks away? Is the former couple’s relationship really over now? Or will the pair recognise they were destined to be together?
Paddy receives calls from family members concerned about his whereabouts as he approaches a male club outside of the hamlet and is unsure whether to enter or not.
Before a guy club patron approaches Liam and tells him they “don’t bite,” as he entices him to enter, Paddy answers the phone and says he’s out with pals.
Nate confronts Mackenzie at the farm, furious that his friend used him as an alibi for Charity without first consulting him. But Mack is uncaring, ostensibly having trouble with the idea of avoiding Reuben as the two men engage in a furious argument.
These scenes will be shown in Emmerdale between May 8 and May 12 at 7:30 p.m. on ITV1 and ITVX.
