Emmerdale’s Marlon has been making progress in his stroke recovery in recent months, improving both his mobility and his speech.
He would soon marry Rhona Goskirk, the love of his life, and Mary Goskirk, her mother, made sure they secured an August wedding date.
However, it might be his friend Paddy Kirk who comes to the realization that his friend is not all that he seems to be and that his departure from the ITV soap opera may be imminent.
The wedding party will attend their individual stag and hen parties in scenes that will appear this week on the village-based drama.
While Vanessa Woodfield plans the party for Rhona, Paddy is in charge of making sure Marlon has a memorable evening.
Because he was concerned he wouldn’t be able to do what the other guys would be able to do, the Woolpack cook initially stated he didn’t want a party.
Prior to his special day, Paddy throws his best pal a zombie-themed party as a surprise because he doesn’t want him to miss the moment.
Unfortunately, Marlon can’t handle the excitement and eventually passes out when his best man is talking to him.
Paddy may get very anxious because, despite the fact that he is aware of Marlon’s valiant efforts in physiotherapy, he recognizes that this level of fatigue is unusual.
It’s possible that Marlon has acquired an infection as a result of his recent high level of stress and increased social interaction.
It didn’t take long for Marlon to return to the hospital after his stroke and initial discharge because he had pneumonia.
This time, the same thing might have happened because a chest infection might have turned into something far worse.
The damage to his lungs might already be irreparable by the time Paddy rings for an ambulance and his best friend is back in the hospital.
In light of the fact that it appears Marlon won’t make a full recovery this time, they should advise his loved ones to prepare for the worst.
Rhona and Marlon would have to be bidding goodbye to one another on what ought to have been the happiest day of their lives.
Given how diligently the stalwart has been working toward his recovery, it would be a tragic way for his tenure in the community to come to an end.
A friend, parent, and partner who had so many more years to live would be mourned by Paddy, Rhona, and the rest of the hamlet.

Marlon’s actor, Mark, recently discussed how he acquired the part and how he believed the producers had made a grave error in casting him.
They have the incorrect guy, Mark reasoned as he entered the restroom and peered in the mirror.
This was due to the fact that Marlon was purportedly described as “A Greek god, an Adonis, the sort of man who makes women melt,” which was entirely at odds with who the actor actually was.
“Can I just question you about this description?” I asked the director. He remarked, “Oh yes, don’t worry, he’s now a nerd who thinks he’s those things,” the soap opera star continued, before adding:
“They were planning to have him as a lovely, sculpted object, an incredible hunk.”
Someone once said that it would be amusing if he were just a complete dweeb who believed he was that, Mark continued.
In an interview with The Mirror, he claimed, “That’s why I got the audition.
The actress, who added: “It made me feel amazing, wasn’t too upset about the character changing. Thank God I don’t have to whine my way through this, I thought.
When the actor was first introduced to the cast, he had no idea that one day he would be at the center of a stroke plot.
Laura Shaw, the show’s producer, gave the following justification for choosing this particular character: “Warm, funny, and kind-hearted Marlon is without a doubt one of Emmerdale’s most adored characters.”
And because of Mark Charnock’s great range, experience, and talent, she remarked, “it felt entirely fitting to play such an extremely significant subject as this.”
With Marlon, it is made clear that a stroke can occur at any time and that it can have disastrous effects on the victim and their entire family.
It’s possible that Mark will leave the show at this point after more than 25 years of playing the part.
