6 Emmerdale spoilers for next week
1. Tragedy for Charity and Mackenzie
Tragic events occur just as the couple is adjusting to the notion of having children together.
When Moira Dingle (Natalie J. Robb), Mackenzie’s sister, assures him he’ll make a terrific dad, he’s just getting used to his new attentive job and is affected. At the cottage, though, Charity feels a sharp wave of agony and worries that the infant may be ill.
When Mack discovers her struggling on the ground and picks her up, Charity is upset because she believes it might already be too late.
At the hospital, Mack maintains his optimism, which makes Charity feel much more damaged.
As a doctor rushes them to the Early Pregnancy Unit, the couple hides their anxieties from one another and waits for the results while the radiographer goes in search of a doctor.
It is later determined that Charity had an ectopic pregnancy, which meant their unborn child would not live. When Mack hears the baby’s heartbeat that she and Charity are doomed to lose, she is simultaneously astounded and heartbroken.
Charity is ready for what will happen next and is appreciative of Mack’s help as they are left alone to handle the news.
But it’s obvious that he’s not handling things as well as he claims. Will Charity and Mack confide in one another and work through their pain together? Later, Charity makes it plain that she wants to resume a regular life.
2. Emergency for Charles
Naomi (Karene Peter), a long-lost sister, is unresponsive when Ethan (Emile John) asks her to give their father another chance. Charles is overjoyed when Naomi shows up and agrees to speak fully later at church.
However, his partner Manpreet Sharma (Rebecca Sarker) hears a dispute and moves in that direction.
Manpreet is shocked to discover Charles unconscious on the floor after seeing an irate and furious Naomi storm out of the church.
As Harriet Finch (Katherine Dow Blyton) watches as Manpreet attends to Charles, Naomi sees the ambulance and runs over.
a jarred Naomi enquires about Charles’ wellbeing, but Manpreet orders her to leave. When Ethan shows up and witnesses Harriet detain Naomi on suspicion of assault, he is unsure of his reaction.
When Manpreet compares Naomi to her aggressive sister Meena Jutla at the hospital, Ethan is surprised to learn of Charles’ condition (Paige Sandhu).
But is Naomi guilty, or is Manpreet incorrectly assuming the worst based on the past? Will Charles be able to survive?
3. Dawn struggles over how to help Clemmie
Following a visit from a social worker, Dawn and her husband Billy (Jay Kontzle) inform their son Lucas that his recently discovered half-sister Clemmie is moving in with them.
However, a reserved Clemmie had to be talked into leaving her social worker, and while Lucas is able to make Clemmie more outgoing, the youngster creates conflict when she becomes alarmed over a misplaced doll.
Dawn tries to move more slowly than Clemmie while waiting for reinforcements, and Kim Tate (Claire King) lends Dawn a sympathetic ear.
Dawn is appreciative of Kim when she takes Lucas and Clemmie out for a while because it shows some signs of growth.
Harriet observes a tiny mending in their relationship despite Dawn and her alienation, but when Kim’s babysitting endeavor fails, Dawn is more worried than ever.
Kim becomes sidetracked when Clemmie scratches Lucas, and Clemmie’s unhappiness worsens when Lucas unintentionally removes one of her toys.
Kim’s tough comments cause the young child to start crying, and when Dawn and Billy finally catch up with the group, Dawn is left regretting herself for not staying with Clemmie. However, has she taken on too much?
4. Jai and Laurel are reunited again
After the drama surrounding Laurel’s affair with Kit, who double-dated, the two eventually get back together after divorcing earlier this year.
The couple decides to move forward and is thrilled to tell their children about their reconciliation.
Viewers will recall that Laurel dumped Jai after discovering that he had taken out a loan in her name. Then, just when things appeared to be going well, Laurel discovered narcotics and blamed Jai for being an addict.
Laurel and Jai have recently been getting along, but it had seemed like they would remain estranged. Now that she knows the cocaine wasn’t his, she is less upset. Therefore, this latest development can come as a shock. But given his dishonesty and deception, has Jai learned his lesson?
However, in the world of soap operas, anything may happen. Even yet, it’s always wonderful to see some joy infused into the gloomy Dales.
5. Jacob stands firm in his decision
It appears that recent events, including Jacob’s mother Leyla Cavanagh’s (Roxy Shahidi) cocaine overdose, have affected the teen’s future plans.
He would get his A-Level results the following week, and he did quite well. In spite of this fantastic news, Jacob says he won’t be attending college.
He was enthusiastic about his goals and had previously sought advice from his physician stepdad Liam (Jonny McPherson) about attending medical school.
Can anyone reconsider giving up on their objective, then? Since Meena has proven to be the least trustworthy nurse around, Emmerdale could use another doctor to balance out the excellent eggs. So let’s hope Jacob changes his mind about his course of action.
6. Chas is torn over her duties
Chas recently ended her relationship with Al, but if you thought it was over, you might be dissatisfied since she simply can’t seem to quit desiring him.
Chas has been using Al as a diversion while her terminally ill mother Faith concentrates on making the most of life, even if it means violating the law.
She is conflicted in later episodes between her passion for Al and her duty to Faith. Really, Chas, it’s not that difficult of a choice! Will she again give in to temptation? No, please!
