Emmerdale fans all saying the same thing about Pierce’s ‘return’

Doesn't Rhona deserve better

Emmerdale’s Rhona Goskirk has been through a huge amount at the hands of Pierce Harris and when he made a shocking comeback into her life last night fans were not happy about it.

In fact, they’ve been left calling out the scriptwriters and storyliners over being unoriginal and giving Rhona nothing else to do.

Does she deserve better than revisiting this storyline yet again?

Why is Pierce back in Emmerdale?

Pierce wrote to Rhona from prison to reveal he is dying.

He also told her he has a son, who he wants her to help him find before he dies.

Rhona is completely torn over what to do.

Vanessa is strongly against Rhona getting involved, but after phoning the prison and getting confirmation Pierce is really dying, Rhona makes her decision.

She starts to search for Marcus on social media and ropes Ryan in to help.

Marcus will turn up later in the week, but is Rhona opening a whole dangerous can of worms?

Should she really be getting involved with the devil once again? Surely anything to do with Pierce can only mean one thing: heartbreak.

When was Pierce last on screen in Emmerdale?

Pierce was last seen in 2o20 when he was unmasked as the killer of Graham Foster, Rhona’s new boyfriend.

Once Graham was out of the way and Pierce had set Marlon up for the crime, he also kidnapped Vanessa and her son Johnny.

He used them to lure Rhona to meet him, but the brave vet managed to trick him into confessing to Graham’s murder while she live-streamed his words to the Free Marlon website.

And as if that wasn’t enough, Rhona then managed to inject him with a bull tranquiliser and watched as he slumped to the ground just as the police arrived.

Pierce was arrested and eventually he was back behind bars serving life for kidnap and murder.

Who is Pierce’s son?

It turns out Pierce has a son called Marcus, played by Darcy Grey.

Marcus will arrive in the village this week believing he is meeting Rhona.

But in fact, Vanessa has interfered and tricked Marcus into meeting with her. She tells him to go away, but Rhona catches them together and realises what’s going on.

But is Marcus a chip off the old block? Or nothing like his rapist, murderer father?

Speaking about his character, Darcy has said: “For Marcus, the battle of being torn between wanting to forget his relationship with his Dad but also ultimately, wanting to simply be loved is a challenge many of us face, and one that I hope I can bring some truth to.

“He is such an open book, with such an uncertain future that I just can’t wait for you all to see where his journey in the village takes him!”

Is he about to bring more heartache to Rhona in Emmerdale?
