EMMERDALE’S Wendy Posner has been taking a backseat from the drama on the ITV soap in recent months but her inclusion in Faith Dingle’s exit storyline could mean she is about to reconsider her own future,
Only Wendy and Moira Barton (Natalie J. Robb) were aware of Faith’s secondary cancer at the time of her initial diagnosis.
In the background of Faith’s (Sally Dexter) current Emmerdale plotline, in which she learned that her cancer had returned and was now fatal, Wendy (played by Susan Cookson) has been present. The Dingle matriarch will be tying up some loose ends in the coming months as she realises her time on the ITV serial is winding down. When her family learns who received everything in their mother’s last will and testament, they might be in for a big surprise.
They attempted to persuade the Dingle matriarch to be truthful with her family, with whom she was finding it difficult to connect after everything she had previously put them through, particularly with her son Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley).
She believed that they would put on a smile and settle their differences out of pity rather than forgiving her for what she had caused them to go through.
There was a time when Faith felt she would never tell them the news because she wanted their connections to be strong before she broke the news to them.
She had the opportunity to alter her mind about her will at this point and tell her solicitors to transfer all of her assets into Wendy’s name.
The actor who plays Faith, Sally, teased this narrative twist by mentioning Wendy’s admiration for Wendy and all the support Wendy received.
She wanted no support at all, according to Sally. She simply believed it would be simpler to handle things on her own and that she could tough it out on her own.
“And Moira accidentally learned about the circumstance, and in many respects, she was great in providing Faith with that support.
But having someone as passionate and emotional as Moira on your side has also caused Faith to feel emotionally torn in two.
She intended to keep certain details private, but Moira insisted that she reveal them.
She didn’t find that easy, so, but at the same time, Moira and Wendy’s support was excellent, Sally said.
The soap diva continued to say in an interview with Express.co.uk and other media, “In her heart of hearts, she felt grateful.
Given that it appeared Moira was supporting Faith the most, the financial shift might come as a surprise to her family and viewers.
Faith might have thought the nurse was a better alternative because Wendy had less money and Moira was too pushy to give up her identity.
Faith could have known the nurse intended to relocate to London and start a new chapter if she had stayed with Wendy for a short period of time.
Faith might have assumed that since her family was well established, this was the wisest use of her money.
Unfortunately, they might be incensed to learn that a person with little familial ties received their entire fortune.
The family could have hoped that Faith would have left them something despite the fact that there might not have been much left in light of everything she put them through as children.
When Wendy learns she has received all of Faith’s life savings, she might be as astonished as Wendy and devise a scheme to return the entire sum.
Since Moira would have known what her mother-in-law would have prefered, she might step in before she has a chance to talk with Faith’s family.
Before the Dingles had a chance to stop her, Moira would advise Wendy to take the money and head to London because she deserved happiness.
Given how their relationship ended, she could start over with her son Luke Posner (Max Parker), who lives in the Capital.
Wendy might be leaving the world at this point, leaving her tragic past in the hamlet behind her as she sails off into the distance.
She would not want to be reminded of everything she has lost because her oldest son, Lee Posner (Kris Mochrie), was killed in the Dales.
Will her relationship with Bob Hope (Tony Audenshaw) naturally end or might this be the new beginning she needs?
The Wendy-playing actress, Susan, has already discussed whether or not she will continue in the weeknight serial drama.
The actress admitted to ITV’s Lorraine earlier in the year that she was “currently really happy in the Dales.”
Nevertheless, given that Susan has been a part of the programme for more than two years, it’s possible that her contract is up for renewal.
With the show’s 50th-anniversary celebrations set to see some huge drama descend on the village, will she get out before she is dragged into it?
