EMMERDALE’s Rhona Goskirk is set to escape to France with Graham Foster and son Leo as the walls close in on the lovers.
But the vet’s plan is destroyed when Graham is brutally murdered in a stream of special whodunnit episodes set to air next week. But will Rhona still leave the Dales without him?

Is Rhona still leaving Emmerdale?
Much to Graham’s delight in December, Rhona accepted the opportunity to work at a veterinary practice in France.
The vet has been planning her departure from Emmerdale with Graham and son Leo for some time now.
But Leo’s father Marlon is none the wiser about Rhona’s plan to whisk off his son abroad.
However, Graham will leave her scheme in tatters when he’s murdered next week in Emmerdale – after making more enemies than he can count on one hand.
So now it seems unlikely that Rhona will still go to France without Graham – but who knows.
When is Graham killed in Emmerdale?
Emmerdale launches the whodunit storyline next week, when Graham is murdered in cold blood by one of the many villagers with a grudge against the man in black.
The soap is venturing into non-linear storytelling by replaying the day of Graham’s death from five different perspectives during each episode throughout the week.
The final episode of the week will be shown from Graham’s point of view – and reveal who the killer is to viewers.
Who kills Graham in Emmerdale?
Feisty Kim is set to discover that Graham has been stealing money from her next week.
Furious, she enlists Al’s help to give her former partner in crime what he deserves and get rid of the thorn in her side – permanently.
When Jai crashes into Graham’s car, the former butler is quick to blab to Laurel about her boyfriend’s addiction.
Blaming Graham for tearing his family apart, Jai is quick to seek deadly revenge.
Graham locks Ryan up when he refuses to continue to help him steal from Kim.
But when Charity finds out what Graham has been up to – along with his meddling in her son Noah’s drug overdose – she becomes obsessed with teaching him a lesson.
Jamie still hasn’t got over Graham’s revelation that he had a one-night stand with Andrea.
And Graham can’t resist stirring the pot further next week when he reveals another big secret about Andrea to Jamie.
Marlon flies into a rage when he realises Rhona is taking their son Leo to France for a new life with Graham.
Seeing red, he promises Rhona that her and Graham won’t get away with it.
But what lengths will he go to, to stop her?
What has actress Zoe Henry said about her character?
Speaking about Rhona’s recent actions, actress Zoe Henry said to Metro.co.uk: “I think she’s so aware that Kim has her watchful eye over her and Graham. They both feel that they’ll never be happy with Kim around and she won’t leave them alone. She seems to be omnipresent.
“Rhona has been a bit blindsided by how much she hates Kim, and how things have gone sour at the vets. Jamie has turned on her and she’s feeling really uncomfortable about the whole situation. She feels that it’s all going wrong in the village of Emmerdale, so she wants to get away.”
On Rhona’s plan, Zoe said: “As much as I can understand where she’s coming from, I don’t think she’s thinking about the parental stuff around Leo.
“This is the second time Rhona has attempted to go abroad with him. As a parent myself, I think it’s appalling and unforgivable, really. I would never forgive anybody who did that to me.
“But again, she’s not thinking so clearly – there’s a lot going on in her head. Rhona is just focused on escape and getting away, which is clouding her judgement.”

Are Rhona and Marlon going to get back together?
ITV bosses are yet to confirm any details of another hook-up between Rhona and Marlon.
However, next week Marlon is set to get the wrong end of the stick and lean in for a kiss – will Rhona decide they’re meant to be too?
Speaking to Metro, Zoe added: “I hope Rhona and Marlon can get back on track because they’ve had a long history together and they share a child, so they need to get along. But it’s not looking good at the moment.”
