Weeks (if not months) of creepy behaviour by Noah Dingle (Jack Downham) in Emmerdale ended up with him trying to trap Chloe Harris (Jessie Elland) in his house last week – and his mum Charity (Emma Atkins) walked in right in the middle of this and caught him at it.
The repercussions of this play out in upcoming episodes as Noah is questioned by the police. He realises that he’s in serious trouble, but when he later threatens Chloe with revenge for calling the police, Charity intervenes and says she did it.
It’s heartbreaking for Charity, as she worries that her relationship with Noah will never recover from what he sees as her betrayal of her. At the same time she realises that he’s directing all her anger at her, rather than acknowledging to himself that he did something seriously wrong in the way he behaved towards Chloe.
As Charity reaches out to her son and promises that he won’t be going to prison for what he’s done, Harriet (Katherine Dow Blyton) turns up to take Noah back to the police station where he’s charged with harassment and breaking and entering.
Charity is stunned when Noah’s solicitor tells her that it’s very likely Noah will get a custodial sentence.
Is he headed for prison?
