A violent showdown in the village of Charity Dingle (Emma Atkins) leaves Al Chapman (Michael Wildman) dead. She lost her daughter and her job, will she lose her freedom next time?
Faith Dingle (Sally Dexter) is driven out of the village despite having just returned, and Dawn Taylor (Olivia Bromley) rejects Jamie Tate (Alexander Lincoln) when she learns she has a child with Gabby Thomas (Rosie Bentham).
Here are all your Emmerdale spoilers for March 1 – 5, 2021.
Charitable attacks on Al
After being spectacularly charged every day for months, Charity desperately wants to correct herself in the only way she knows how – by awful means. Breaking into the HOP office to try to steal a client contact for Chas Dingle (Lucy Pargeter), hoping it would smooth things over with her former business partner, Charity caught Al in the act.
There’s already a big beef between the two, while Charity tried to cross it twice to get revenge on Debbie Dingle (Charley Webb), only Al got the advantage and tricked her into incriminating her daughter. Panicking, Charity throws an ornament on Al’s arm and runs to the runner, but when Mr. Chapman is coldly knocked out, can the blonde blonde be forced to leave him dead?
Is faith leaving again?
She was only back for five minutes, so it’s pretty impressive how much chaos the unfortunate Faith managed to cause in such a short amount of time. A controversial Dingle court ruling on whether she was allowed to stay causes a ripple around the family, and Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley) to the glowing Moira Dingle (Natalie J Robb) voted for her mother-in-law to stay.
Zack Dingle (Steve Halliwell) prays with his son to put the pain of the past behind him, especially now Cain has a new granddaughter Frankie to think about (as if being born in Dingles isn’t hard enough for a newborn). Receiving a hint from a family she doesn’t want, Faith sneaks out, only to run into Moira as she tries to get out peacefully. Can Moira convince Faith to stick? And is that really a good idea?
Dawn reveals Gabby’s pregnancy
When Jamie is too cowardly to clean up, Will Taylor (Dean Andrews) leaves the news to his daughter Dawn, whose boss / crush made Gabby pregnant. And not only that, but the future teenage mother also moved to the Home Farm.
The devastated Dawn confronts Jamie without a spine, who tries to convince her that she is the one he loves, and the situation with Gabby was a mistake – even though she resulted in a baby. Surprising the self-esteem of someone so sabotaged, Dawn declares that she and Jamie are done before they really start, leaving the posh prince with a sense of being trapped by the pregnancy more than ever.
Jamie’s evil plan
Complaining about himself as he seeks solace in a pub, Jamie blames Mack Boyd (Lawrence Robb) for being dumped by Dawn and pushed into playing happy families with Gabby. Naughty Mack suggests a bad way to solve his problems, which is low even by his standards. How low can Tate Totty go to get out of this mess?
Meanwhile, dizzy Gabby chooses color schemes for kindergartens while settling on Home Farm, which has worried stepmother Laurel Thomas (Charlotte Bellamy). Warning Gabs that Kim Tate (Claire King) is just cute to make sure the custody of her grandson falls on her ear, especially when Jamie seems to have changed and asks her mom to go out to dinner. Wake up, Gabby, they’re using you poisonous Tates. Don’t cry for us when everything goes wrong …
