Emmerdale will hint on a dark side next week to Liam Cavanagh while Bernice Blackstock makes a relevant discovery.
The show started in recent episodes with Liam’s background story, in which Bernice (Samantha Giles) wonders why he rarely talks about the death of his first wife.
Next episodes of the week see Bernice continue to emphasize while she realizes that there is so much that she still doesn’t know about Liam.
In The Woolpack, Bernice takes drastic measures by “accidentally” spilling the contents of Liam’s bag onto the floor.
Bernice’s sister Nicola King (Nicola Wheeler) is amused by her antics, but both are worried when they realize that Liam has a sinister looking balaclava between his possessions.
The next day Bernice snarls and confronts Liam with the balaclava and demands an explanation of why he has it.
Has Bernice encountered a shocking secret, or is this just one big misunderstanding?
Jonny McPherson, who plays Liam, told us earlier that Emmerdale bosses had originally planned that his character was a big bad guy.
Jonny, who finished late last year, explained: “I think there was initially a discussion about whether Dr. Cavanagh would be offensive and violent and start killing people – things like that.
“But we call it a kind of Carry On Emmerdale. Since then it has taken a slight turn.” A light comedy where I jump out of the bushes and get entangled in the toilets and stuff. “
