Emmerdale spoilers – sad April scenes after Marlon’s stroke

Emmerdale spoilers follow.

April Windsor has had to come to grips with her father Marlon Dingle’s stroke in harrowing Emmerdale scenes.

The ITV soap was praised by viewers this week for gripping and authentic scenes where Mark Charnock’s character suffered a stroke just before he was going to propose to partner Rhona Goskirk.

The storyline, which has been produced in support of the Stroke Association charity, continued in Tuesday’s (March 22) episode as April was determined to visit her father Marlon in the hospital.

Even though Rhona’s mother Mary warned against it, April was brought in to visit her father – but she struggled to share her feelings at Marlon’s bedside.

“I don’t know what to say,” she admitted as they both shed tears. “You would. You always do… I never got to tell mum how much she meant to me, now I can’t even tell you. I’m so sorry, dad.”

Marlon would later undergo surgery to remove the clot, and while it was successful, April admitted to Rhona and Mary she was struggling with her father’s new reality.

“Dad could still die, or maybe he won’t be able to look after us anymore. What’s going to happen then?” she asked Rhona.

Mary then promised her: “Whatever happens to your dad, good or bad, we are not going anywhere. Do you hear me? … We are your family and whatever happens next, we will deal with it together.”

The episode ended on a powerful note with April hugging Mary, who then reached out to hold her daughter Rhona’s hand too.
