After suffering a stroke, Marlon Dingle from Emmerdale has been returning to his regular daily routine, with regaining his driving skills the next item on his agenda.
During tonight’s episode of the ITV soap opera Emmerdale, viewers were distracted by claims that Rhona Goskirk (played by Zoe Henry), Paddy Dingle (Dominic Brunt), and Mary Goskirk (Louise Jameson) traveled through time to assist in saving Marlon Dingle (Mark Charnock).
Marlon made the decision to take a drive around the village during Tuesday’s episode in an effort to regain his confidence behind the wheel.
He said to Rhona as he explained his strategy, “I need to get started on this, there is too much faffing around with arrangements.”
Uncomfortable, “Well, my mother is in the house if you want her to go with you,” said Rhona. I could also leave because I deserve a break.
Marlon teased, “Yeah because husbands and wives driving together is always a massive success,” but he was determined to start driving.
“Just a few laps around the village will do the trick and warm me up. I’m not going to Cornwall.”
He forgot to shift into gear as he started to drive away, but after a quick reminder from his wife, he sped off and cheered.
He was unable to move the car once it had stopped at a set of traffic lights, which caused him to lose control of the vehicle and have a panic attack as the vehicles behind him honked at him to move.
We need to leave because Marlon is stuck and having a meltdown, he told Rhona who was in the Woolpack before rushing to Mary and Paddy.
The following scene showed the three arriving in a field where they discovered Marlon upset and in distress as they fled the bar.
“What happened?” enquired Rhona. “I can’t drive, it is that simple, and I’m never doing it again,” Marlon insisted.
“I don’t even have the best foot; I just have a bad foot and one that’s a little better. I don’t even have the bottle.”
Some fans claimed they teleported, leaving fans baffled as to how they managed to get to the field so quickly.
@BallumsHouse, a user on Twitter, cried out: “Did they use the f***ing DeLorean Time Machine to get to Marlon?! #Emmerdale.”
Hashtag @Matt528chap asked: “Did Paddy, Rhona, and Mary use the Tardis to get to Marlon?”
“Omg in a blink of an eye they arrive to rescue Marlon, the secret superheroes of the village?” tweeted @MattZeeMiller. Zoom in like a flash to the rescue.
“Bloody hell Rhona, Mary, and Paddy got to Marlon quickly,” tweeted @mikepriestley13. #Emmerdale.”
Did Paddy, Mary, and Rhona teleport to Marlon’s distress, wrote @itzzzo_? #Emmerdale.”
Well that was fucking quick, commented @Katie_Murphy776. How did they arrive in Marion in less than one second? (sic)
