It was a game of Truth or Dare in Monday's double helping of Emmerdale as Rhona struggled to keep her secret about Marcus's identity from Marlon. But it's universally acknowledged that in soaps 'the truth will out', or 'owt' as they say in the Dales - and this episode didn't disappoint.

Rhona (Zoe Henry) was forced to spill the beans to Marlon about the fact Marcus was Pierce's son after weeks of keeping it hidden. But that wasn't the only shock that Marlon had coming his way, because Rhona also revealed she'd contacted Marcus at Pierces' request. 

Of course, Marlon was shocked at the news that not only had Rhona had a letter from her former abuser, but that she had also acted on his dying wishes, and Twitter exploded with rage at Marlon's reaction to the news.

But there were some scenes that fans loved... mainly Marlon dashing to Paddy to get his head around the situation. Viewers couldn't get enough of how the next morning revealed they had gone the full Bert and Ernie and had worn matching pajamas for their sleepover...

Many fans also loved the fact Kim waded in to put Marcus in his place. His father had killed Graham and it was great to have a quick reminder of how strong and forthright she could be...

It was also confession time for Meena too as our troubled vicar, Charles, visited the repentant serial killer once again to get to the truth. But could he handle the truth? Yes, Meena was in full Jack Nicholson mode, again. Recently it was The Shining (‘here’s Meena!’) now she was quoting A Few Good Men...

Elsewhere, Noah celebrated his 18th birthday, blissfully unaware that Amelia had a crush on him. Since Noah is one bail short of a haystack this was not surprising. The upshot was we actually had a scene between Dan and Kerry at last!  

Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays - see our TV Guide for full listings. You can also catch up on ITV Hub now.
