Emmerdale couple Marlon Dingle and Rhona Goskirk could find their relationship on the rocks next week thanks to newcomer Marcus Dean.
New ITV spoilers reveal things will get complicated when Marcus informs Rhona (Zoe Henry) that she has been named in Pierce Harris’ will.
Rhona knows time is running out to tell Marlon (Mark Charnock) the truth about Marcus’ identity, but when she learns of the will, she doesn’t know what to do.
When Kim Tate (Claire King) stops to speak with Rhona and learns Marcus’ identity, she is shaken but Rhona does her best to explain everything about Pierce and Marcus (Darcy Grey).
However, Kim can’t believe what she’s hearing and as she storms out, Marlon walks in, looking confused as he’s only taken the end of the confrontation.
Rhona ends up telling the truth to a stunned Marlon, but he decides to leave because he needs time to digest everything he has just been told.
This leaves Rhona devastated and fearing the worst for the future of their relationship.
The next day, Marlon tells Paddy that he’s not sure he’ll ever be able to forgive Rhona and when they cross paths there’s a war of words.
When Rhona insults Marlon’s ego and accuses him of shaming his victim, Marlon is visibly hurt.
Overseeing it all, Marcus begs him not to vent his anger at Pierce on Rhona and Marlon is deeply struck by Marcus’ words. But will it be enough for Marlon to want to reconcile?
Rhona is determined to smooth things over between her and Marlon and decides to propose to him, but what will be her response?
