In Friday’s (May 12) episode of Emmerdale, Charity Dingle (Emma Atkins) learned more details about the one-night stand between Mackenzie Boyd (Lawrence Robb) and Chloe Harris (Jessie Elland) and the months before the birth of baby Reuben.
We’ll pardon you if you sometimes forget a few things from this lengthy plot.
Mackenzie wanted Chloe to have an abortion as soon as he found out she was carrying his child.
Naturally, Chloe wasn’t going to accept that and continued the pregnancy.
As the plot progressed, Sarah (Katie Hill) discovered the truth and even had Chloe go to Scotland, which she had recently intended to do before Reuben became sick and ended up in the hospital.
Charity almost mistook Chloe’s relocation to Scotland tonight when she went to the hospital to confront her about the truth.
When Chloe mentioned the notion of moving to Scotland and the fact that Mackenzie had offered to purchase her and Reuben an apartment, Charity assumed that she meant her husband was planning a hidden existence away from the community since she was so distraught and furious that it was obvious she wasn’t seeing things clearly.
Chloe probably cared more about Reuben’s health than the drama playing out, so she didn’t really interact or try to persuade Charity that it wasn’t the case and instead went back to the hospital room to watch over her baby.
Charity could hardly look at Ryan (James Moore) and Sarah after finding out that they had both participated in the falsehoods and that Ryan was aware of Mack’s treachery.
She did, however, give Mackenzie one more glance before instructing him to leave the home since he had lost everything.
Will Mack and Charity reconcile now that he is certain he can resolve their conflict, or is he just dreaming?
