Emmerdale has hinted that there could be a double departure in the Dales next week when Ross Barton asks Rebecca White to leave the village with him.
Could this exit storyline for the actress be for real this time?
After her shocking ordeal at the hands of serial killer nephew Lachlan White, Emmerdale writers would be forgiven for letting Rebecca have a slightly easier time of late, but it seems they’ve got more drama lined up for the character next week.
Ross is on hand to support Rebecca when she is left terrified after receiving a birthday card from Lachlan at the start of next week.
But just when he thinks that his girlfriend might have lost her fighting spirit, Ross is stunned when Rebecca reveals she would happily kill her nephew if she had the chance.
As the couple talk about all the bad things that have happened to them since arriving in the village, Ross is given food for thought and decides that maybe it’s time they both made a fresh start somewhere new.
Rebecca’s shocked when he suggests they leave Emmerdale, wondering if he’s serious about his plan.
After Ross’s shocking acid attack which led to a drug addiction, not to mention his mum Emma, dad James and brother Finn all dying while living in Emmerdale, it’s not surprising that the village holds bad memories for him.
Meanwhile Rebecca has also lost most of her family since arriving in the Dales after her sister Chrissy and dad Lawrence were killed in a car crash by Lachlan.
Rebecca was then subjected to weeks being locked up by her late sister’s deranged son… and when you put it like that, why wouldn’t they both want to flee while they still can?!
So with the possibility of the pair leaving the village, did Emmerdale writers just bring Rebecca back to the village after Lachlan’s torment, just for her to leave again?
Emmerdale fans already know that actor Michael Parr is set to bow out of the soap in the coming weeks. Could this also be his exit storyline?
These scenes air next week on Emmerdale.
Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
