What happened to Marlon?

Earlier this month Marlon proposed to Rhona, but suffered a devastating stroke moments later.

He was rushed to hospital and had an operation to remove a bleed on the brain.

But when he woke up, it was clear the effects would be long-lasting.

Rhona has vowed to be by his side every step of the way, despite her mum suggesting she should put herself first.

In shock scenes aired last week, Mary said she felt it was all too much for Rhona. She urged her daughter to consider splitting from Marlon.

Although Rhona was fuming at first and threw her mum out, she eventually opened up to Mary. She confessed she was terrified and didn’t know if she could do it.

However, she resolved to stay strong and fought hard to get him home. She enlisted the villagers to help adapt their house ready for Marlon’s return.

However, has it all been in vain?

Is this latest setback just too much?

Emmerdale usually airs weeknights at 7.30pm on ITV, with an hour episode on Thursdays.
