Chloe Harris, a new mother in Emmerdale, was devastated to learn that her newborn son Reuben would not survive after having bacterial meningitis, according to the medics.
In recent Emmerdale scenes, Chloe Harris (Jessie Elland) was preparing to flee the village in an effort to conceal her affair with Mackenzie Boyd (Lawrence Robb).
However, when baby Reuben was taken by ambulance to the hospital, things took an unexpected turn.
When monitoring the infant’s temperature, Liam Cavanagh (Jonny McPherson) became concerned and informed Chloe that they needed to go to A&E.
However, as the word got around the community, Mack began to worry and went to the hospital covertly behind Charity Dingle’s (Emma Atkins) back.
It was eventually discovered that infant Reuben had bacterial meningitis and was being closely watched by the medical staff.
However, during Friday’s episode, it appeared that baby Reuben’s health had deteriorated, and the doctors told Chloe to prepare for the worst.
Mack appeared at the hospital as well, pleading with Chloe to let him meet his son.
Although this prompted Chloe to yell at Mack and tell him that he wasn’t Reuben’s father.
Mack argued, “I want to be here. More than anything else, “I want him to be ok.”
Chloe wept, “Well, he’s not okay and there’s nothing I can do about it.” I’m with my son, so I’m not alone.
No, he’s not your son,” Mack clarified as Chloe erupted, “our son. You keep claiming that you are the only person who comprehends what I am going through, but since you are not his father, I don’t understand why you feel that way.
Following the episode, a large number of fans took to Twitter to discuss potential outcomes.
Many people appear to believe that Mack is not Reuben’s father in a strange paternity twist.
@Samanth22356123 expressed her hope on Twitter, writing: “I really hope after this it turns out Mack isn’t even the dad!! #Emmerdale.”
“Still don’t believe he is the father,” said @margy_1954.
Still don’t think he is the father, said @geraldine.mulcahy.Charity is really made more human by Mac.
“So obvious that the baby is going to turn out not to be his – baby will probably be sick and on checking blood type, they will find he isn’t the father,” Joy Pack said on a Facebook fan page. I believe Nate.
Additionally, Gillian Griffiths said: “I predict this child will need blood and this will prove that Mack is not the baby’s father!!!!!”
Great episode, Michaela Garner continued to theorize. I was devastated for Mack. It might not be Mackenzie’s son, in my opinion.
