Emmerdale’s Rhona Kirk fears her rape case against Pierce Harris could be about to collapse next week thanks to her friendship with Paddy Kirk.
The week starts with Rhona feeling disappointed when Paddy has to leave and gives him a hug unaware Marlon Dingle’s spotted them.
At the pub a troubled Marlon approaches Paddy and asks if he’s hoping to get back with Rhona but he denies it, insisting he’s determined to support her as a friend. She too reiterates this to Marlon.
Later DC Obsborne arrives with some photos of Rhona and Paddy embracing and points out it could back up Pierce’s argument in court.
Paddy beats himself up over having made things worse for Rhona and frightened about the prospect of Pierce being exonerated, Rhona asks him to stay away.
Meanwhile, Vanessa is distracted and can’t bring herself to tell Rhona she’s been summoned as a witness, as have Marlon and Jimmy.
Eventually Vanessa summons the courage and Rhona reassures her she trusts her to give evidence – but could she be playing into Pierce’s hands?
