Another week of controversy, heartache, and important decisions are on the horizon for the villagers of Emmerdale, along with a few surprises and shocks.
Charity Dingle (Emma Atkins), who is still grieving over Mackenzie Boyd’s (Lawrence Robb) treachery, kindly suggests The Woolpack as a possible location for Reuben’s christening.
But Chloe Harris (Jessie Elland) mockingly dismisses the idea.
In an effort to make things right, Mackenzie travels to Jacob’s Fold and apologises to Charity. However, since emotions are running high, old memories resurface, and as a result, one thing leads to another, and the two end up having sex.
After their night of passion, the former couple is in shock and confused of what it all means. Mackenzie seeks guidance from Moira Dingle (Natalie J. Robb), and his older sister cautions him that if Chloe learns what has happened, he risk losing Reuben.
Who will Mack pick as his companion? Where does he actually put his heart?
Charity, meanwhile, dares to hope for a reconciliation with her ex, but will she ultimately suffer another heartbreak?
During the same week, Marlon (Mark Charnock) experiences driving anxiety, and Mary Goskirk (Louise Jameson) fabricates a new romantic relationship before Paddy Kirk (Dominic Brunt) discovers her crying in a field.
Rhona (Zoe Henry) feels as though she is being dragged in three separate directions, and Paddy jumps to her defence, but Marlon and he quickly find themselves at odds.
That is, until she has had enough and tells Marlon, Mary, and Paddy what she has planned for each of them, ordering them to get ready for a day of facing their fears.
What exactly does she have planned, though?
These scenes will be shown in Emmerdale between August 21 and August 25 at 7:30 p.m. on ITV1 and ITVX.
