MARLON Dingle has been making progress in his recovery from his stroke over the past few months.
The Emmerdale cook is prepared to wed Rhona Goskirk, but is he really as happy as he appears to be?
The character of Rhona Goskirk, played by Zoe Henry, has met the love of her life in Marlon Dingle (Mark Charnock), and she is prepared to get married to him.
But in order to achieve that, she had to give him some time to recuperate from his terrible stroke, and the chef’s recovery wasn’t simple.
The following week, Marlon will be gradually readjusting to life outside of Smithy Cottage, but he will still find it difficult to leave his house.
When her best friend Vanessa Woodfield suggests throwing a party to celebrate their engagement, his fiancée is initially hesitant.
Marlon is dubious once Rhona brings it up, and despite his reluctance to return to The Woolpack for the first time since his stroke, he concedes.
Fortunately, Paddy Dingle (Dominic Brunt), who at first found it difficult to be there for him, offers Marlon support so that he won’t have to deal with it alone.
After receiving assurances that everything will be alright, Marlon and Rhona head to the neighborhood bar for their engagement party later that day.
Everything looks to be going well since everyone applauds when Marlon declares his love for Rhona.
“Gabby has felt very safe and anchored at Home Farm. Being a single mother on her own is difficult, “Could Jamie’s presence on the scene be more of a help than a burden, she asked?
But as was already indicated, this would be Marlon’s first return to The Woolpack since his stroke.
Is he pretending to be brave?
That is still to be determined, but Marlon’s stroke plotline has kept viewers on the edge of their seats—and occasionally furious.
In recent episodes of Emmerdale, Marlon’s physical therapist Kit (played by Thoren Ferguson) has come under fire for allegedly pushing Marlon too far in his recuperation.
Eventually, he and his patient reached an understanding, and he begged him to teach him how to cook so that he might regain his motor abilities.
However, does Marlon really enjoy his recuperation and life with Rhona?
