Mack makes big decision about his baby but heartbreak follows in Emmerdale
Mack Boyd (Lawrence Robb)’s priorities have been shifting in Emmerdale recently as he’s been gradually realising that the baby Chloe (Jessie Elland) is expecting – of which he’s the father – is more important to him than he thought it would be.
When Chloe first told him she was pregnant following their one night stand, Mack’s first thought was to protect his relationship with Charity (Emma Atkins) and that’s been uppermost in his mind ever since.
But gradually, as Chloe’s pregnancy advances and the prospect of having his child in the world becomes more real, Mackenzie has been wavering.
When Chloe revealed that the baby is a boy and asked Mackenzie if he wanted to feel the baby kick, it brought the whole thing into sharper focus and Mack realised that he cared more about the baby than he ever imagined he would.
In Tuesday (March 28)’s visit to the Dales, Mack was struggling with this realisation and went to talk to Chloe about it. He told her that he wanted them to be friends.
‘I actually do care about this pregnancy,’ he told her. ‘It’s my baby too.’
Chloe told him it was far too late for this kind of change of heart, as in the past he’d made it perfectly clear that she was just a nuisance who could get in the way of his happily-ever-after with Charity.
As Mack continued to try to convince her that his feelings were genuine she told him she was sick of hearing about his feelings and she didn’t need his help.
‘If I want help I’ve got Amy (Natalie Ann Jamieson),’ she said, reminding him that it would be very hard for Charity to remain unaware of his relationship with the baby if he kept hanging around.
‘You need to stop talking about “your” baby,’ she told him firmly. ‘We had a deal and we’re sticking to it, so just leave.’
There was nothing left for Mack to do but to go and unburden himself to Nate (Jurell Carter) – who must be getting as tired as Chloe is of hearing about Mack’s feelings.
With Mack and Charity’s wedding rapidly approaching, not to mention the impending birth of the baby, Mack’s ‘feelings’ are going to be all over the place. Will he be able to keep a lid on his baby secret? Or will it all come out in explosive fashion?
