Scene of the Week (2-6 Jan 2017)



I’ll discuss the Rhona and Pierce consent and control storyline in my Fave or Fail? feature, but the nuance and impact of this scene following Rhona’s rape was an easy choice for Scene of the Week. Rhona was almost silent in this scene, a subtle way of showing the impact of Pierce’s behaviour and control, and it jarred with his complete, chirpy obliviousness in a powerful way. Scenes like this are Emmerdale at its finest. Zoe Henry’s still and understated performance, with her distant stare and gathering of a blanket around her, told viewers everything about her mindset and the events that had passed.
