Pierce (played by Jonathan Wrather) made his villainous return to Emmerdale in an explosive week of episodes for the ITV soap which saw him deal the killer blow and bring an end to Graham’s (Andrew Scarborough) time in the village. Although the murderer fled shortly after the attack, upcoming scenes will see him turn up once more and it seems he has a connection to his victim’s estranged wife Kim (Claire King). So, could the pair have formulated the plan to kill the schemer together?
The returnee is fresh out of prison after he was found guilty of raping his wife Rhona Goskirk (Zoe Henry) two years ago and with his record, it’s unlikely he will be able to get a job.
What with a murder on his conscience now after striking down the village schemer, although no character knows he is the killer, things don’t look too good.
However, there may be one resident who would be willing to provide the former prisoner with some work as they could have a past together.
With the village gripped by Graham’s murder, Pierce makes a comeback once again next week and it soon becomes clear the villain has a plan in mind, with Kim in his sights. But how do they know each other?

Viewers will see him tell his flat mate it won’t be long before he finds a job, before he’s seen in the Dales.
With so many pertinent locations in the village to watch over the drama, Pierce decides to think through his plans outside Home Farm.
The establishment is the base for Kim to conduct her evil schemes from, so could this suggest the returnee already knows the villain?
During last week’s episodes, fans watched as Al Chapman (Michael Wildman) failed to act on the order to kill Graham given by his estranged wife.
