Will the children and Rhona support the couple’s life-changing decision?
Although Rhona was keen to make amends, she may turn against her friend in the future.
Laurel is Leo’s god-mother and Rhona may see her decision as a betrayal of her relationship with her son.
Speaking to Express.co.uk and other press, series producer Laura Shaw explained Rhona’s role in the storyline.
Laura said: “We’ve got some incredible scenes between Laurel and Rhona and it’s probably some of the most powerful scenes we have ever done, to be honest.
“Laurel tells Rhona and her first reaction is anger. When she says what she’s thinking about a termination, her first reaction is anger.
“She’s furious with Laurel for putting this on her and she shouts at her and that they both have a cry and how they kind of navigate their way through this together is a huge part of the story.
“The issues that it raises for Rhona with how she feels about Leo, and how Laurel’s decision makes her feel, it’s something that we totally have to have to explore and that we do go through in a big way.”
Emmerdale airs Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7pm and Thursdays at 7pm and 8pm on ITV.
