Mackenzie Boyd (Lawrence Robb) has received some information from Matty Barton (Ash Palmisciano) on the whereabouts of Chloe Harris (Jessie Elland) and her infant son Reuben in Emmerdale.
Mackenzie informed Chloe that their relationship was over a few weeks earlier.
Soon after, he returned to the town with Charity (Emma Atkins), only to be severely shocked when a devastated Chloe packed her things and fled the hamlet as a retaliation.
Mack has been so consumed with worry ever since. Mack loves being a parent, and even with all of his failures this year, so losing Reuben to Chloe has made him lose his mind.
In the episode that aired on Tuesday, December 12, Matty became aware of this. At the moment, Matty is torn between his family and Amy (Natalie Ann Jamieson), who is aware of Chloe’s whereabouts.
Matty confided in Amy after yet another trying talk, saying he detests lying to the people he loves.
Amy, the mother of Cain’s (Jeff Hordley) children, informed Matty that he should put Chloe’s needs first because his family spoils everything.
It was evident that Matty was uneasy with the idea of betraying his family. Then, he went up to Butlers, where he ran into Mack, who was not looking forward to seeing Reuben this Christmas.
Mack continued by expressing how much he misses his kid and how much he detests the possibility that he would never learn about Reuben’s upbringing.
Matty finally admitted to Mack, feeling awful, that Amy is aware of Chloe and Reuben’s locations.
Mack was appreciative of Matty when the first shock subsided, and he also disclosed Amy’s intention to meet her sister tomorrow.
Mack promised Matty he would maintain his secret, but that promise was quickly broken.
Mack came at Charity with a happy bounce in his step and told her everything. She consented to accompany Mackenzie on his journey tomorrow, where he will trail Amy in hopes of running into Chloe and his kid once again.
Will it, however, be successful?
Whether it happens or not, Mackenzie’s life will take a drastic change since, according to future teasers, he will be found presumably dead and tied to a chair at an abandoned factory.
As Chloe asks her father, who is cruel and in charge, for assistance, this will be the next stage in her retaliation.
Will Mackenzie survive till 2024, though?
