UNABLE to accept being away from baby Ivy, Rhona Goskirk did the unforgivable and kidnapped the tot before escaping the Dales.
But consequences catch up with the Emmerdale vet and one of her closest friends grasses on her, leading to a shock arrest next week.Rhona Goskirk left Emmerdale with baby Ivy[/caption] She was unable to let go of the tot when Gus Malcolms was ready to take her home with him[/caption] Will she ever manage to overcome the pull she feels towards Ivy?[/caption]
This led to the bittersweet birth of Ivy and, once she met the new-born, Rhona’s shock wore off.
Instead, she began to feel an undeniable pull towards Ivy and she has struggled to stay away from her.
But when Gus decided to take Ivy back, after first struggling with single fatherhood, Rhona took things to a shocking level by kidnapping the baby girl and leaving the eponymous village.
Next week on ITV, the Yorkshire-based drama reveals that Rhona found a place to hide with baby Ivy, in a secret holiday cottage – but she’s not alone.
Indeed, Rhona is not only in the company of Ivy but she’s also with her dear friend Vanessa Woodfield as actress Michelle Hardwick is due to finally reprise her role.
As regular viewers of the long-running show will recall, Vanessa left the Dales in late 2022 for a job opportunity in Canada, giving time to Michelle Hardwick to make the most of her maternity leave.
But what has Vanessa been up to during her time away?
While this remains to be seen, Rhona asks Vanessa to help her and Ivy navigate a move to start a new life across the pond… in Canada.
Vanessa tries to talk Rhona out of this but the latter refuses to abandon the idea.
Despite his own hard feelings, Gus gives them until midday to find Rhona.
In other scenes, Vanessa tries to call Marlon about the situation, but without a signal, she is unable to reach him.
Gus grows increasingly impatient as the deadline approaches and a nervous Marlon agrees to call the police himself.
However, with Vanessa managing to establish contact and thus betraying Rhona’s location, Mary begs Marlon to go talk to his wife instead, which Gus reluctantly allows.
Marlon arrives at the cottage just as Rhona is about to leave with Ivy.
Though initially defiant, Rhona finally seems to understand the ramifications of her actions as Marlon reasons with her.
Sadly, Gus and the police soon show up to arrest a devastated Rhona for kidnap.
Emmerdale viewers have been expecting more trouble for Rhona and Marlon as the birth of baby Ivy caused a stir in their marriage.
But could the pair separate as Rhona may face prison and an impending exit from the village?
