Declan’s current vendetta against Charity is to end in a lakeside showdown that will result in the body of one regular character being recovered by the end of the week.
The six villagers with their lives on the line are Declan (Jason Merrells), Charity (Emma Atkins), Megan (Gaynor Faye), Robbie (Jamie Shelton), Debbie (Charley Webb) and Pete (Anthony Quinlan). But who will be meeting their maker?
Tonight’s episode will see an unhinged Declan bundle an unconscious Charity into the boot of his car, unaware that there’s still life left in her. After driving to a secluded spot to dig her grave, Declan opens the boot and Charity lashes out before haring off into the woods.
But when Charity makes it the edge of a lake and onto a boat, the scene is set for a confrontation that turns deadly. As Charity and Declan tussle, viewers will see a concerned Megan, Robbie, Pete and Debbie also rush to the scene, fearing that tragedy is about to ensue…
Fans can see how events unfold in a double bill of Emmerdale tonight on ITV at 7pm and 8pm.
