In Monday’s Emmerdale episode (June 3), the fallout from the shocking disclosures regarding Ella Forster’s (Paula Lane) hidden past was depicted, nearly resulting in the confrontation of two closest friends.

Liam Cavanagh (Jonny McPherson) was in shock over learning that Ella had killed her childhood best friend. Ella kept her past very private, so there has been mystery surrounding her ever since she moved to Emmerdale.

There were indications that it had something to do with Leanna Slinger, Liam’s daughter, who was killed by Meena Jutla (Paige Sandhu). There were even theories that suggested Ella and Meena were related.

Another layer of mystery was added when we saw Ella visiting June Phillips in a care facility. It was obvious that Ella had a great deal of affection for June, and Manpreet (Rebecca Sarker) believed that June was Ella’s mother.

Liam went along with Manpreet’s request that Ella not attend June’s funeral alone after she passed away. To the indignation of fellow mourners, he identified himself as “June’s daughter’s partner” despite not seeing Ella.

Then Ella revealed the truth, first telling Liam and then going into further detail when speaking with Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley) afterwards. Ella was raised in a home where drugs were used, so she had a deprived upbringing. She was forced to attend school dirty and neglected, and June quickly developed an interest in her after she made friends with June’s daughter.

For a while, June was like a mother to Ella, who thrived under her love and attention. When June’s daughter informed her that the other girls were mean to Ella and she no longer wanted to be her friend, she realized that meant spending less time with June. She killed the daughter after attacking her in a fit of wrath.

Ella saw that Cain and Charity (Emma Atkins) were the only people in the Woolpack who could relate to her since it was obvious that they had also come from impoverished backgrounds, despite the fact that everyone in the village was against her following the revelation that she was a killer.

After accompanying her to the pub’s back room and lending a sympathetic ear, Cain convinced Jimmy (Nick Miles) to let her stay the night at the B&B.

Liam was furious to learn that Ella was still living in the village and that Cain was the reason behind her continued presence. Since Cain is his closest friend and the person he confided in during Leanna’s death, he felt betrayed that Cain would ostensibly support a child killer.

He went to find Cain at the garage and insisted on knowing why his friend had chosen to become involved. “I demand her removal,” he emphasized.

“Who appointed you sheriff?” Cain was curious because he believed Ella should have another chance because what she had done was when she was a child. Liam accused him of centering everything around Kyle (Huey Quinn), the son of Cain who is being tormented at the moment for killing Al Chapman (Michael Wildman).

“Everything revolves around Kyle,” Liam remarked. Cain countered that, in Liam’s mind, everything revolves around Leanna. Liam then violently pushed Cain back against the wall, grabbing him by the collar. Liam was told to stop by Leyla (Roxy Shahidi), who hurried over to Cain, who just stood by and did nothing. Liam released Cain and walked away.

Ella tried to talk to him later and give an explanation, but he wouldn’t listen. He said that although she killed June’s daughter, he didn’t hate her for lying to June and concealing the truth. When June was suffering from dementia, Ella had reestablished contact with her and had partially given in to her belief that she was her daughter.

Declaring that he would never want to see Ella again, he marched her to her car.

Is Ella’s time on Emmerdale coming to an end? Or in a village where nearly everyone is hiding at least one guilty secret, is there a way back for her?
