THE long-awaited Super Soap Week begins as Charity Dingle and Mackenzie Boyd’s love turmoil comes to a head.
Chloe Harris takes action after finding out what they’d been up to behind her back. But is her time in Emmerdale running out?
ITV viewers are at the edge of their seats as they wait to see who out of Charity Dingle and Chloe Harris will be chosen by Mackenzie Boyd.
The heartthrob portrayed by Lawrence Robb recently slept with his former wife despite being in a committed relationship with the mother of his child.
Charity (played by Emma Atkins) has had trouble seeing him move on swiftly from their ill-fated marriage to form a family with Chloe (Jessie Elland), a woman he cheated on her with.
As regular viewers of the Yorkshire-based program will remember, the one-night stand led to the birth of baby Reuben and the breakdown of Charity and Mack’s marriage.
But as teased by soap bosses and filming snaps, the love triangle is due to come to a head this week in a shocking car stunt.
Coming up next week, Mackenzie and Chloe are preparing to leave for a holiday break in Scotland – with the hope of moving there permanently soon.
But unbeknownst to Mack, Chloe’s sick with betrayal after having heard an unexpected conversation between Charity and Mackenzie.
However, when Tracy Robinson (Amy Walsh) shares how she managed to forgive Nate’s cheating she’s left optimistic she can forgive Mackenzie.
Chloe’s happily reassured when later Mackenzie tells her he loves her.
Later on, Mackenzie makes peace with Charity, accepting that their relationship is really over.
Mackenzie kisses Charity on the forehead but as they pull away from a tender hug, Chloe witnesses the moment and jumps to conclusions.
Chloe approaches them both and asks what’s going on and Mackenzie makes his excuses.
The fiery redhead feigns ignorance but once alone, her smile turns to a look of pure hatred.
Chloe and Mack drop off Reuben with Matty Barton (Ash Palmisciano).
With a withdrawn Chloe driving, Mackenzie’s blissfully oblivious to her fractured state of mind.
Soon the pair are shocked to find Charity broken down at the side of the road, and with mischief on her mind, Chloe offers her a lift.
In the car, the tension could be cut with a knife as Chloe intentionally misses their turn and heads towards the moors with a plan to abandon Charity and Mackenzie somewhere remote.
Charity’s concerned they’re now in the middle of nowhere and having had enough of Chloe’s attempts to push her buttons, she demands she pulls over.
As Mackenzie fears fireworks, a car smashes into them.
Things are eerily still inside the car as Mackenzie regains consciousness and panic sets in as he realises the car is suspended on the edge of a cliff.
Fighting a rising panic, particularly as the other driver is nowhere to be seen, a terrified Mackenzie tries to get out of the car but as he escapes, the vehicle creeks and shifts.
Charity’s frozen in fear as she regains consciousness and realises where she is and what’s happened.
Soon, Chloe regains consciousness herself and is horrified but she’s forced to put her faith in Mackenzie who tries to guide her and Charity to safety and out of the car.
Unfortunately, Chloe knocks the wheel and the car starts to slip away.
Both desperate to be saved, Charity and Chloe reach out to Mackenzie.
Who will he save first?
Emmerdale airs weeknights from 7.30pm on ITV.
