It’s that time of the year when Emmerdale really starts to ramp up the big drama – and we can promise you that this year is no different. There are huge plotlines heading for the village from shocking exits and long awaited reunion through to dramatic returns and life changing events that will rock the lives of several core characters for a long time to come.
With explosive twists, big secrets coming to light, big changes in families and some dashing newcomers to boot, there is something for everyone in the upcoming autumn over at Emmerdale.
Whether you are a Robron or Coira fan clamouring for more power couple scenes, you’re a Debbie fan demanding a big storyline for her, you’re more than ready for Emma to get her comeuppance or you have been really missing Liv, Chas and Gabby, let our big preview bring you some flavour of what’s to come.
Emma found out – with huge consequences
Criminal secrets can’t stay hidden forever and the Emmerdale audience are thirsty for a comeuppance for Emma – and there are explosive scenes ahead as Gillian Kearney’s exit from the show looms. Finn knows a lot of the truth and Laurel has her suspicions but for now, Emma is trying to maintain her cover over James’ death.
But when things spiral out of control, the Bartons will be altered forever – will Emma be heading to prison and will someone else be in danger as she takes desperate measures to try and prevent her darkest secrets from coming out?
Iain MacLeod recently suggested that there could be more damage to be done – as when Emma squeezes too hard, bad things can happen!
Robert’s revenge destroys the Whites
Robert remains determined to take over at Home Farm while simultaneously getting his own back on the Whites and his scheming isn’t set to end any time soon as he steps up his game – but will Rebecca start to suspect what is going on?
Robert’s plot is set to trigger the exit of one of the Whites – and there could well be a changing of the guard coming at the big house. But will it be Robert sitting in the Home Farm throne – or someone else?
Debbie’s love dilemma
Emmerdale have cast two dashing newcomers as part of a big and scintillating new story for Debbie – but will her head be turned by Tom as they contemplate mixing business with pleasure? EastEnders actor Ned Porteous has signed up to play the suave and wealthy businessman while Andrew Scarborough will be arriving as his loyal associate Graham.
Debbie mixes in their circles as part of a new business venture but things are set to run deeper as she and Tom have some electric chemistry – but where does this leave Ross?
Cain and Moira – back together?
It’s a reunion that was pretty much always on the cards so could autumn be what finally brings Cain and Moira back onto each others’ radar? They recently shared a kiss but danced around their true feelings for each other so as not to hurt Harriet.
But a big story for Moira is about to unfold and it could be the making or breaking of Coira. Is there still a chance for the former husband and wife – and just what big drama is in store for Moira?
Leyla has her revenge!
When Leyla discovers the shocking truth about Pete and Priya’s affair from Emma, she will be left both heartbroken and furious – and it will be her so called best mate Priya who faces the full brunt of her rage.
But as Leyla sets about getting her own back, could someone else be hurt in the process by her actions and her emotions?
Liv comes home – but there’s drama afoot
Following Isobel Steele’s break from the show to focus on GCSE exams, Liv will arrive back and will be staggered to find out what has happened in her absence – Rebecca is pregnant, Robert and Aaron have split and everything is up in the air so she is bound to have plenty to say.
It has been confirmed that Liv has a big story of her own round the corner and as Aaron leans on his sister, can she cope with the pressure? And could she be the one to bring her brother and his ex back together?
Nell and Jai’s baby drama
Nell and Jai’s relationship continues to move quickly and it’s fair to say that Jai is pretty terrified to learn that his girlfriend is pregnant with his baby. So soon after the death of her child, Rosie, it’s a lot to take in for Nell too but can they make the best of it and commit to their future together?
After getting his head around the big news, Jai will even decide to propose to Nell. So could a happily ever after be on the cards or might there be more heartache ahead for the long suffering pair?
Can Frank and Megan reunite?
Their relationship has fallen apart in the wake of Frank’s dalliance with Charity and Megan’s revenge scheme to try and frame him for fraud and it’s fair to say that relations between the pair are pretty sour.
And yet, despite it all, there are still clearly feelings there – so is it truly over for Frank and Megan or can they somehow find a way past this to a reunion?
Robron will make it
A reunion that we have been guaranteed is that of Aaron and Robert and Iain has reiterated his intentions to ensure this pair will be back in one another’s arms again – but can Aaron really get his head around Rebecca’s pregnancy?
There is still a long journey for the pair to put everything behind them and look to the future as a unit but with a second wedding set to air down the line, there will be some recovery and we will start to see it in the coming months.
As for whether they can ever be the same as they were, that could be a different matter – has too much damage been done by Robert and Rebecca’s mistake to fully repair?
Chas wants Paddy back?
It seems that we could be swimming in reunions as Chas’ return will see the show revisit her romance with Paddy – which has typically always been beset with disasters. With Rhona having just about ruled out ever giving her marriage to Paddy another go, Paddy will find his feelings for Chas unearthed when she comes home – but does she feel the same?
And Chas will have other things to contend with too – not least of all the broken relationship between Aaron and Robert and the relationship with her mum Faith which has been left up in the air.
Eric and Faith – a match made in heaven?
Speaking of Faith, fans have seen her relationship with Eric experience a bit of a wobble of late but despite the pair both harbouring doubts and nearly giving up on making a go of things, they have realised that they actually make a pretty good team.
Is this the start of Emmerdale’s next big relationship and will they end up falling for each other?
What is Daz hiding?
Dan will continue to struggle with accepting Daz back into his life but the pair will make progress with the help of Kerry. But when Amelia discovers a knife stashed under Daz’s pillow, it becomes clear that he is hiding a lot from his sibling – just why has he armed himself and could Dan be the one to help him out of whatever trouble he is in?
Meanwhile, he also has a surprising romance on the cards – but which local lady catches his eye?
Adam’s exit may not be tipped to air until the start of next year, but Emmerdale will likely start laying the groundwork for his departure in coming months. We know that he and Victoria still hold feelings together but with Adam departing before long, there could be fresh heartache for Victoria, not to mention Adam’s best mate Aaron who won’t want to say goodbye.
It remains to be seen what writers have in store for Adam – is his departure connected to Victoria, Aaron, Emma’s exit, Moira’s big plot or something else entirely? That’s just a case of waiting and seeing – but let’s make the most of Adam while we still have him.
Life changes forever
Last October saw a traumatic chain of events that resulted in a huge car crash, killing James and setting into motion Emma’s huge storyline – and, a year on, it seems like the saga which was triggered by James falling could reach its end.
Iain has been cryptic in his promises of what is ahead, tipping it as universe altering and less stunt orientated and there will be a focus on a smaller collection of characters this time. Beyond that, we can only promise that it is likely to be another unforgettable series of episodes – but will everyone survive or is more tragedy heading for the Dales?
