EMMERDALE favourite Vanessa Woodfield and her partner Suzy Merton have been put through the wringer in recent weeks on the ITV soap but a new theory suggests they might be reconsidering their future in the village.
Recently in Emmerdale, Vanessa (played by Michelle Hardwick) was upset when she ended her relationship with Suzy (Martelle Edinborough) after learning of her connection to Holly Barton (Sophie Powles).
The couple got back together and have been enjoying their life together after gaining Moira Barton’s (Natalie J. Robb) consent to continue the relationship. They may need to prepare their departure from the ITV soap because, regrettably, events are going to take a frightening turn.
Suzy will be stopped by the police in scenes aired this week when Matty Barton (Ash Palmisciano) complains about her for having narcotics in her vehicle.
Suzy is unaware of this because Matty hid the drugs in her car after discovering the cache Leyla Harding (Roxy Shahidi) was guarding in the Take A Vow office.
Suzy, who has vowed to leave her drug-using days in the past, appears to be in serious difficulty and will have to defend herself.
If she is taken into custody, it might make for intriguing watching in the scenes that air the following week because she might be released on bail.
When Vanessa and Suzy finally meet, the former will learn some fresh details about her partner and her involvement with narcotics.
Suzy may be aware that she is being set up, but since there is no proof, she will have to leave the country.
Vanessa could decide that she and her small kid will accompany her and begin a new life abroad since she doesn’t want to miss out on another opportunity at love.
Consequently, a double escape would be anticipated, with both actors dodging the police as they go.
However, how will the rest of the village react if they discover Vanessa has sided with a supposed drug dealer instead of people she has known for years?
But I believe he is simply really upset that Matty is unable to see what is in front of him because he has created a story in his mind and is only choosing to see what he wants to see, Ash said.
“I know the public can see the real her, but he can’t at all, since I’ve already had people approach me in the street and beg me not to go after Suzy.
It’s annoying because you can understand the path he is on and why he ends up where he does by observing him hear the incorrect parts of conversations and exchanges.
Asked if the aim is to have Suzy in jail, Ash added: “Definitely, he wants her to go to prison to pay for what she’s done.
“Not only to avenge his sister but to all the other people who are supposedly under her spell. He’s convinced Suzy is taking advantage of Leyla as well and is no good.”
In order to deal with his pain and guilt, the actor said, “he wants her to go to prison for what she did, but also so that his pain and guilt is dealt with. He won’t feel bad for not being there for Holly because he’s sorted it now with his revenge.”
Michelle, the actress who plays Vanessa, would be able to take a vacation from the show if this double exit were to air.
The actress recently made the announcement that she was expecting their second child together with Kate Brooks.
After her first child was born, Vanessa took a maternity vacation and didn’t return to the town until the end of last year.
Announcing the latest news, Michelle took to social media to post a picture of herself, Kate and their young son, Teddy.
Coming this winter, Baby Brooks number two, Michelle wrote.
“We are ecstatic with our wonderful news! Today marks my 20th week, and I nearly feel comfortable placing a cup of tea on my belly.
The authors will need to include a departure for the actress very soon because she is already halfway through her pregnancy.
So if Suzy does feel she can no longer live in the village with her girlfriend, will Vanessa be going with her very shortly?
