The ITV soap opera’s characters recently experienced a dramatic holiday season that seems to be far from over.
Samantha Giles’ character, Bernice Blackstock, has been dealing with menopause symptoms for the past few weeks. She has been exhibiting the typical symptoms in addition to snapping at everyone and going through unprovoked fits of rage. Bernice has worked in her favorite salon for years in Emmerdale, but she is about to experience the shock of her life when she is fired and left with nowhere to turn.
In upcoming scenes, Bernice is incensed to learn that Mandy (Lisa Riley) will have to fire her from the salon.
Showrunner Jane Hudson recently addressed the current plot line and provided the following explanation to Metro.co.uk: “We enjoy telling stories that connect with many of our viewers.
“Men need to be informed about menopause just as much as women do. Sam Giles does a fantastic job of it because she was able to inject humor into a situation that is actually quite challenging, sad, and difficult.
“So, as we try to comprehend what this woman is going through as she approaches menopause, we really get to enjoy that story.
The statement “Bernice does not want to admit it at all, she’d rather have some terrible illness than be told she has menopause” is true.
In their absence, Bernice has been desperate to claim something as her own and to demonstrate why she would make the ideal manager.
Bernice made an effort to distract herself from any unfavorable thoughts she was having about her menopause during the holiday season.
As a result, she made the decision to start a support group, and Bob Hope (Tony Audenshaw) decided to DJ a party on New Year’s Eve in the Dales.
Another resident will be impacted by Bernice’s actions, adding unneeded stress to her already high level.
In another scene, Nicola continues to harbor animosity toward Naomi Anderson (Karene Peter), and she acts out in an effort to cheer herself up.
Naomi gave April Windsor (Amelia Flanagan) a pep talk when she was having trouble dealing with her crush on Arthur.
However, Rhona Goskirk (Zoe Henry) and Marlon Dingle (Mark Charnock), her father, are getting sick of her attitude.
Later, Rhona discovered April had bright nail polish on, and she connected her actions to Naomi’s influence.
As soon as Naomi learned of Rhona’s opinion of her, she confronted the local doctor, which led to a heated exchange.
After being attacked, Nicola seized the chance to exact revenge and started feeding Rhona rumors about Naomi’s influence over April.
Will Rhona give her a chance?
