Mary Goskirk (Louise Jameson) broke down in daughter Rhona’s (Zoe Henry) arms in Emmerdale, branding herself a ‘joke’ after discovering that Faye (Jane Gurnett) had conned her out of thousands.
The matriarch, as viewers know, fell head over heels in love with Faye, who she met on a dating app, with the pair having even decided to move to Ecuador to start a new life together.
Faye alleged to have ran a women’s shelter in Ecuador, which was in need of urgent cash after a fire, with Mary having helped her plan a fundraiser, which made over £2,000.
Suzy Merton (Martelle Edinborough), however, started to suspect that there was more to Faye than meets the eye after she insisted on a bank transfer to her personal account as opposed to that of the charity, with subsequent scenes seeing her relay her suspicions to a stunned Mary.
Mary refused to believe such claims, even transferring £6,000 of her own cash to the fundraiser in a bid to prove her loyalty to Faye, with Tuesday’s (May 2) edition of the ITV serial seeing her plan their new life together in Ecuador.
Suzy, however, reiterated her doubts, telling Mary that there is something fishy about Faye, urging her to use her journalistic instinct to dig a little deeper and see what she can find.
Unable to stop thinking about Suzy’s words, Mary did just that, cornering Faye, who subsequently showed her true nature, attempting to gaslight Mary and question her faculties.
Mary broke down, as Faye took great pleasure in making her feel small for falling in love with her, but a scuffle ensued soon afterwards, with Mary refusing to let the fraudster leave with the cash, which ended with Mary banging her head off the table, as a gleeful Faye made off with the money.
Gus, Rhona’s ex who refuses to take no for an answer, popped by Smithy Cottage for a chat when he found Mary out cold on the floor, phoning for an ambulance and staying with her until the paramedics arrived.
Suzy soon showed up, as Mary had her wounds tended to, filling the events planner in on what had transpired, confirming that her suspicions about Faye were indeed correct after all.
Rhona later arrived and was horrified to find out that Faye was a money-grabbing fraud, with Mary subsequently revealing that it’s not the fact that she’s lost thousands that hurts the most, but rather the fact that she feels ‘a hundred years old’, and ‘vulnerable’ for the first time in her life.
‘Rhona, I’m a joke!’, she exclaimed, bursting in tears in her daughter’s arms, unable to come to terms with the devastating ordeal that she’s been through.
Will Faye get brought to justice?
Emmerdale continues Wednesday May 3 at 7:30pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
