Dan has been lurking in the background of his niece Amelia Spencer’s Emmerdale storyline lately because he’s worried about how fixated she’s grown on her body image.
After she collapses at Home Farm in this week’s episodes of the ITV soap opera, he learns the full extent of what she has been doing to herself.
But as he worries more about the kid, he can find himself at odds with Noah because the latter might develop an obsession with Amelia.
Next week’s episodes of the soap will have Kim Tate and Gabby Thomas (Rosie Bentham) exacting revenge on the Spencers for Amelia’s (Bertie Brotherton) decision to drop Thomas Tate (after she fell) after she had passed out.
Dan doesn’t reveal they have listed his property for rent until he notices the sign outside, at which point he confronts Kim about it.
As it turns out, Gabby has already completed the task, Kim must bluff her way through the conversation by seeming to be aware of this development.
Kim notifies the Spencers they have two months to find new housing before new inhabitants come in once she agrees to the plans.
Kim throws another surprise on Dan regarding his seemingly innocent niece Amelia as the Spencers rush to find a new house.
Kim stops Amelia in her tracks when she discovers her attempting to use Gabby’s visiting order to see Noah, something she has already done several times.
As they lead the child to her uncle, Kim and Gabby spill everything, and Dan is enraged with his niece for talking behind his back.
Additionally, he is upset that she was able to pass herself off as Gabby and that she doesn’t seem to care that she broke multiple laws in the process.
The mechanic is relieved when Harriet Finch (Katherine Dow Blyton) turns around and offers him and Amelia a place to live as his problems intensify.
Although it appears that one problem has been resolved, Amelia will soon come face to face with Charity Dingle (Emma Atkins), Noah’s mother, when she learns the truth.
Charity berates Amelia for seeing her son in jail, and she demands to hear every tiny detail to learn what they discussed.
What the owner of the tavern does not anticipate is learning that her son, who was originally given a three-month term, will soon be released from prison.
After being away for a few weeks, when he does return, he avoids Charity because she reported him to the police and he doesn’t want to be associated with her.
He will be happy to see Amelia as she is the only one who wants to spend time with him as he sits and considers his options.
He may start to fixate on Amelia, though, as he did with Chloe Harris (Jessica Elland) in the past.
Dan may try to intervene and close the gap between the two if he realized what was happening, but this might not be warmly received.
As a result, Noah might end up getting even with the meddling uncle of his latest victim and make mistakes with some of the mechanics on the car he’s working on at the shop.
Dan can get trapped in an explosion as the car catches fire if he is unaware that the area has turned into a death trap.
This would give the impression that everything happened by accident, with nothing pointing to or connecting back to Noah.
Will anyone recognize the young man’s increased level of danger now that he is inside?
Dan’s views regarding Amelia’s relationship with problematic Noah have been discussed by Liam, the actor who plays Dan.
“Dan would be furious!” said Liam.
The soap star continued, “With everything Noah has done, he would not want Amelia anywhere near him, so might Dan’s time be running out?
Dan has been a recurring character on the show for more than ten years, and he has played a significant role in a number of high-profile storylines.
It’s possible that his superiors were arranging for him to start a new relationship because the adored villager also moved in with Harriet.
Harriet will have to support Amelia through her grief if he is killed off, which could mark the end of the partnership as a whole.
She doesn’t openly open up. Liam also talked about how concerned his character has gotten for his niece.
There are remarks made concerning her body image, self-doubt, and inadequacy.
Dan has grown increasingly conscious of Amelia’s dissatisfaction with her appearance, something he finds extremely difficult to comprehend.
He is concerned about her emotional well-being, her sense of self, and what initially prompted her to take the syrup.
