Bernice (played by Samantha Giles) has been front and centre of storylines on Emmerdale over the last few months, which included planning her daughter Gabby Thomas’ (Rosie Bentham) exit from the village before the youngster gave birth and the departure of her mother, Diane Sugden (Elizabeth Estensen). By helping so many of her loved ones, the mother of one hasn’t been able to put herself first or think of beginning a new relationship after her former lover Liam Cavanagh (Jonny McPherson) married Leyla Harding (Roxy Shahidi). However, in upcoming scenes on the ITV soap, she will find herself attracted to a man with who she hasn’t crossed paths with much in the past. But this could spell danger given who they used to romance in the past and it seems the affair could turn deadly.

The drama kicks off in next week’s episodes of the weeknight serial drama when Gabby is already getting annoyed she is missing out partying with her friends.

She tries to palm baby Thomas Tate onto her mother, Bernice, and the child’s other grandmother, Kim Tate (Claire King).

In no uncertain terms is the youngster told the baby is her responsibility now and she must carry out her motherly duties and stay at home.

Not long after being told she shouldn’t go out, Gabby is seen stepping up and wants to take charge looking after her baby.

Unfortunately, in a yet unknown sequence of events, Nate Robinson (Jurell Carter) arrives at Home Farm to speak with Bernice.

Gabby’s mother is overcome with guilt when Nate tells her she raised a spoiled brat in her daughter and Bernice begins to suspect he is telling the truth.

The beloved character is devastated by the revelation and just when she is about to question herself, Will Taylor (Dean Andrews) jumps in to defend her.

He provides some unexpected support to the hairdresser as he shared his own experiences with trying to raise a child.

This moment brings the pair closer together and it seems this could be the start of a new romance in the village.

Unfortunately, if they do decide to embark on an affair, the course of true love will not run smoothly for them.

This is because Will previously had a very complicated relationship with Kim before he briefly left the village a few weeks ago.

He decided to flee when he informed the ruthless businesswoman he had buried DI Malone’s (Mark Womack) corpse on the grounds of Home Farm.

Worried his lover was going to report him to the police, he make a hasty exit as he didn’t want to go back to prison.

Before he made his departure, he and Kim confessed their love for one another, making it more awkward when he returns for Andrea Tate’s (Anna Nightingale) memorial service.

As Jamie Tate (Alexander Lincoln) is no longer on the scene and her granddaughter, Millie Tate (Willow Bell) being taken off her, she could seek comfort from Will.

Wouldn’t mind if they’d [killed me off]

However, to find out he is beginning to court Bernice could leave her blood boiling as she feels him slipping from her grasp.

Will is technically a single man who is allowed to romance anyone he would like and it seems he has his eyes firmly on Bernice.

This could go against the mother of one, however, as she wouldn’t realise just how much Kim would Will back in her life.

What would make the situation more awkward is if the new lovers begin having dates at Home Farm, which Bernice recently moved into to help with the baby care.

Knowing her former lover is having an affair under her roof could push the villain off the edge and this could lead her to take revenge.

Not wanting anyone to have Will if she can’t have him, Kim could plan to shoot her former lover and make it look like an accident.

In a devastating twist, however, she could discover she actually shot dead Bernice in a case of mistaken identity.

This might work in her favour as she would be able to portray herself to be a supportive shoulder to cry on for Will.

Kim would well and truly integrate herself back into his life so he would have no option but to give things another go.

Unfortunately, this would mean an untimely exit for Bernice, who only returned to the village this year after an 18-month stint away from the village.

Following her exit from the show in 2019, the actress who plays Bernice, Samantha, explained she wouldn’t mind if bosses killed her character.

The soap star explained: “I said [to the producers] I don’t mind what they did, because I think if you say that you’re going, you can’t then say, ‘Oh, don’t kill me, though.’

“So I wouldn’t have minded if they had [killed me off]. But they wanted to leave it open. So that’s really nice that she’s not dead,” she told ITV’s This Morning.

With the character having already made an exit in the last few years, bosses might want to end her story once and for all and begin a new storyline for Kim.

How long would she be able to keep the secret she was the one who killed Bernice?

Emmerdale airs weekdays at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode airing on Thursdays at 8pm.
