If the recent shitstorm that is Charity Dingle’s life wasn’t terrible enough, losing a newly adopted child, get caught kissing someone and then dumped. Then Emmerdale feel like adding more fuel to the fire next week by having her sleep with Al Chapman, yep he who just got called out for sleeping with both Debbie and Priya. On a personal note i’d rather Charity take a long extended break for a while to save anymore humiliating behavior – thanks for slowly undoing all that character growth.
Attempting to make some headway with her son, Charity offers to go for a run with him. As Charity gasps for air after their first race, Noah’s amused by her determination as she insists she’ll win next time, and they set off again. She’s jubilant when she does in fact beat Noah, until she sees he’s bent double in pain. Worried, Charity calls Meena over to check him out but Noah’s annoyed when she mentions his medical condition. Noah’s down, convinced he’s going to fail the army medical.
However, he soon has an idea when Samson says he’d help him if he could. Samson’s uneasy as Noah passes him an empty water bottle – he’s asked him to give a urine sample so Noah can pretend it’s his and pass the medical… Samson gives Noah the urine sample for his medical assessment, but seeing his unease, Charity’s suspicious. Samson later confesses and Charity calls the assessment center. Will she scupper Noah’s chances?
Later, when he realises about her Interference, he lays into her for her selfishness, commenting his life would have been better if she’d sold him forever. Goaded Charity slaps him… Has she gone too far?
Al’s panic stricken when Kim threatens to go to the police unless she gets her money back by tonight. Noticing Chas and Debbie are at odds with Charity, he comes up with a plan. Al joins Charity as she’s getting drunk and he soon manipulates vulnerable Charity to admit the details of Debbie’s revenge on him. Full of self loathing, she suggests they go upstairs, callous Al decides to go along with it, determined to make Debbie pay…Will Charity be left at rock-bottom?
