Emmerdale’s Paddy and Marlon lovingly reunite in moving scenes
Paddy (Dominic Brunt) and Marlon’s (Mark Charnock) bromance has been one of the most beautiful love stories to ever come out of Soapland. But the Emmerdale duo hit the rocks and it’ll take some doing to get their relationship back on track.
There are no quick fixes for Paddy as he battles his mental health. While his loved ones may have caught his suicidal ideation in time, the thoughts and the depression don’t just evaporate. Recovery is slow and there are no shortcuts, and he needs his best pal there along for the ride.
Marlon (Mark Charnock) has been desperately trying to save his friend, not just from the jaws of death when Paddy decided he wanted to take his own life with a bolt gun. But also, to save him from destroying himself through self-destructive behaviour.
Paddy’s suicidality hit Marlon hard with the realisation Paddy was choosing to leave him and his loved ones behind. Despite bringing him back from the brink, Paddy and Marlon suffered a fall out that has left Marlon as sad and desperate that he’s still in one way or another losing his best friend.
But there’s a little light at the end of the tunnel for vulnerable Paddy.
Marlon cancels his birthday after his argument with the vet. He sees no point in celebrating if the one guy who means the world to him won’t be there. Later in the pub, Mandy (Lisa Riley) has a word with Paddy that he needs to make things right.
Her words get through to Pads, and he crawls with his tail between his legs to apologise. It doesn’t take long before the bromance wins out and they’re back to their love-in, with them both expressing how grateful they are for one another. Things get even better when the next day Rhona (Zoe Henry) allows him to return to work.
And as if that wasn’t enough positivity for one day, Paddy and Chas (Lucy Pargeter) manage to have a civilised conversation and plan a chat with Eve to explain what’s happening about him having to leave.
Marlon is concerned that Paddy has to leave the place and people he loves, and Liam (Jonny McPherson) hears his worries by offering Paddy somewhere to stay. Generous of him, given that Bear (Joshua Richards) decides he and Paddy come as a pair.
