Graham (played by Andrew Scarborough) has struggled with his divided loyalty to Emmerdale villain Kim Tate (Claire King) since she made her permanent return to the ITV soap earlier this year.
Kim’s plans to wreck havoc on the village have come to fruition thanks to the support of her right-hand and and tonight’s double bill saw Graham once again abide to his master’s demands.
Having discovered her son Jamie Tate (Alexander Lincoln) and his wife Andrea Tate (Anna Nightingale) had teamed up with Rhona (Zoe Henry) to strip her of her shares in the veterinary surgery, Kim was hell-bent on revenge.
Instructing Graham to deal with the matter, Kim’s plan was rumbled by Rhona when she caught the mysterious villager in the act, locking them both inside the surgery until she discovered what his boss had planned.
You don’t have to stay with her
Graham went on to reveal Kim had tasked him with breaking into the vets, stealing several bottles of Ketamine and then disposing of empty bottles in the children’s playground, with the evidence leading back to surgery and therefore, tarnishing the business’ reputation.
Rhona and Kim already had a turbulent relationship, with the latter having tried to seduce the vet’s former partner Pete Barton (Anthony Quinlan) in scenes earlier this month.
With both Rhona and Graham locked in the surgery, the vet tried to turn the ages on Kim by ensuring her right-hand man would turn against her.
“You don’t have to stay with her. Whatever thing it is you’ve got going on and whatever twisted loyalty you have, you’re obviously not happy,” Rhona told Graham.
“In my experience, staying with someone under obligation is never a good idea,” she continued, to which Graham replied: “It’s not just something I can walk away from.”
As Graham opened up to the vet about his darkest secrets, Rhona said: “Graham, you only get one life. Please don’t waste it paying lip service to someone like Kim Tate.”
With the pair finally reaching an understanding, it seemed their disclosure about their pasts created a bond between them.
As Rhona gave Graham the key to let himself out, the shady character and the vet shared a very intimate moment, with the former handing over the ketamine.
Could Kim’s idea to destroy Rhona actually have given the mother-of-one a new found hope for a romance after breaking up with Pete earlier this month?
Not wanting the Home Farm socialite to discover their relationship out of fear she would drive them apart, will Graham and Rhona keep their affair under wraps if they give into the chemistry?
Back at the Home Farm mansion, Kim confronted Jamie about his plans, with the villain’s son telling his mother exactly what he thought of her.
Admitting he’s wished he’d never left Liverpool, Kim gave her son a cheque to leave the village after she told him she would call off her plan with Graham.
Having spoke candidly about their past, Jamie was struggling to come to a decision to leave his mother, or to stay in the village and give their relationship another chance.
Will Jamie and Andrea leave with their daughter Millie Tate (Willow Bell) cutting Kim out their life for good, or will they stay put until the villain jeopardises things again?
Elsewhere in the Dales, the village will be hit by a horrific tragedy in upcoming episodes as the Sharma sweet factory goes up in flames.
Although Tracy Metcalfe (Amy Walsh) will be trapped inside, will another villager be the unfortunate victim of the blaze?
Emmerdale continues Friday at 7pm on ITV.
