On Emmerdale, Leyla has been battling her drug addiction in recent months, despite the fact that she doesn’t think there is a problem at all.
Only David Metcalfe and Suzy Merton are aware of her drug use following the passing of her stepdaughter and the torment Meena Jutla put her through.
The ITV soap opera’s upcoming week’s episodes will raise the stakes, and she might end up doing something that forces Will to leave the community.
Beginning the drama is Priya Sharma, on whom Leyla has recently been venting a lot of her emotions.
Priya assumed her coworker was being cruel to her without cause because she was unaware her friend was struggling with a drug addiction.
As Monday’s show approaches, things between the two don’t appear to get any better as Leyla chooses to let her friend go from Take A Vow.
Leyla is unaware of the effects Suzy’s recent departure from the company would have because she is the only one in charge.
Priya is disappointed, especially since she was just able to land a position at the company last year after it was founded in 2014.
Leyla appears to be acting brazenly with her attitude when she chooses to sit down with Lydia Dingle after one person has been eliminated (Karen Blick).
When it came time for Kim Tate (Claire King) to tie the knot with Will, she gave Lydia the task of planning the wedding.
This happened when she let go of Leyla, who had started to lower her standards as she became more concerned about when she would get high.
Leyla manipulates the dialogue to ensure that she ends up receiving the job again as she realizes Lydia is finding the stress of arranging Kim’s wedding to be too much.
It appears to be effective when Will asks Leyla if she will pick up the pieces after hearing how stressed out the wedding planner is.
Leyla is ecstatic as she works to restore her reputation, but later in the week, she will face a serious issue.
She assists a drug dealer in hiding a significant amount of his product in the Take A Vow office as a result of her out-of-control drug addiction.
Leyla becomes alarmed when the bag vanishes, having been grabbed by Matty Barton (Ash Palmisciano) to get revenge on Suzy.
The drug dealer gives her only a few hours to locate the drugs, warning her that if she doesn’t, he won’t be held accountable for his acts.
Unfortunately, Leyla could wind up discrediting Will because she has betrayed everyone who has recently been kind to her.
She might end up reporting the drug dealer Will took it because she is aware he has served time in prison for drug-related offenses in the past.
This would imply that the drug dealer was out for blood, seeking retribution on Will for taking his stash and using it whatever he pleased.
Leyla would feel terrible, but she would quickly put her treachery behind her once she realized the drug dealer had stopped bothering her.
She might not be aware of the fact that if she had done so, Will would have been killed just weeks before he was scheduled to marry the love of his life.
Leyla will have to deal with the guilt when Will leaves the program since she accused him of doing something he hadn’t done.
Will Leyla be compelled to acknowledge her drug addiction if it is discovered that she was the one to ensure his demise?
Dean, the actor who plays Will, has already talked about briefly leaving the show to film for the upcoming second season of Life on Mars.
“[Another Life on Mars series] looks to be something that is still ongoing,” Dean said. And, you know, if I were a gambler, I may wager a few pounds on it.
“The show’s creators, Matt Graham and Ashley Pharoah, are now creating four to five episodes and gathering all of the returning cast members.
I think Daniel Mays and I, as well as Phil Glenister and John Simm, are all quite pleased about it. They are hoping that everyone will want to return and that they can set the plot in the 1970s, 1980s, and the present day.
In an interview with This Morning, he said, “I’ve just got to try and beg Emmerdale at some time in my life if they still want me.”
However, writers may have chosen to murder the character dead in order to begin storylines for other villagers in order to maximize the tension on screen.
Leyla’s ongoing drug use is one example of this, as is Kim’s struggle with the sadness of losing her future husband.
After years of upheaval in the village, could this be the end for Will?
