Emmerdale hints at shocking new story for Jacob and Victoria
It was time for blame and recriminations on Tuesday (September 19)’s Emmerdale, after Jacob Gallagher (Joe-Warren Plant) almost died after eating something with nuts in.
Jacob has a lifelong and serious nut allergy, but at a tasting event at the Hide he ate a slider after checking with Victoria (Isabel Hodgins) that it was nut free. She confirmed it was – but soon Jacob was gasping for air and collapsing as he suffered an anaphylactic reaction.
Too late, Victoria realised that in her haste to whip up another batch of snacks when Gabby (Rosie Bentham) brought extra people to the event she’d used nut oil. And even though Victoria’s quick actions when Jacob fell ill may have helped to save his life, Leyla (Roxy Shahidi) knew who she was blaming.
As Leyla and David kept watch over Jacob overnight, Leyla was raging about Victoria’s actions, determined to make her pay. David, who has recently realised he’s still in love with Victoria, attempted to defend her.
He pointed out that last time Jacob was in a hospital bed it was because of Leyla. When Jacob tried to sort out his mum’s drug addiction by confronting her dealer, he ended up being stabbed for his efforts.
Back at the Hide, a traumatised Victoria found some support from Suni (Brahmdeo Shannon Ramana), but then Gabby came in angry that the people she was hoping might buy the establishment had pulled out because of all the drama the day before.
They were joined by Leyla, threatening to call in environmental health and generally making a massive scene by telling customers to flee for their lives while they still could.
‘By the time I’ve finished with you you’re not going to be able to give this place away,’ she warned Gabby, who decided that someone had to take the fall for the whole incident and it wasn’t going to be her. She fired Victoria.
A distraught Victoria felt slightly better later when David stopped by as she had a little cry with Wendy (Susan Cookson) and told her that Jacob was doing well and would be fine. She decided to go and visit him in hospital herself.
As she sat by his bed, telling him how sorry she was about the incident, Jacob took her hand. He said he would sort things out with Leyla.
Then they had one of those Moments where the camera closes in tightly on their faces. The sort of moment that often leads to a kiss.
While Jacob looked like he wouldn’t mind if that happened, Victoria was more awkward. She had been practically his step-mother for quite a while, after all. This was quite the turn of events.
She took her hand away from his and stepped away from the bed, telling him that he’d ‘had a scare and it’s normal that things are a bit heightened.’
‘Is that what it is?’ he replied.
That’s what we’re wondering. Is that all it is? Or could this be the twist that leads to David’s heart being broken as his son and the woman he still loves start a relationship? We know that Matthew Wolfenden will be exiting soon – will this be the cause of him leaving the village?
