EMMERDALE has confirmed Graham Foster tracked down Rhona Goskirk’s rapist Pierce Harris and brought him back to the village.
The soap has released a flashback spoiler picture showing the moment Graham confronts evil Pierce in his flat after his release from prison.
The rapist – who is played by actor Jonathan Wrather in the ITV soap – made a bombshell return last night after hitting Graham over the head.
But it has now been confirmed that it wasn’t their first meeting – but the full details won’t be revealed until tonight’s episode.
In last night’s episode evil Pierce stepped behind Graham in the woods and smashed him over the head – killing him.
Vile Pierce was sentenced to five years in prison in 2017 after subjecting Rhona to a violent and horrifying rape on their wedding day.
He later convinced his mother to stalk Rhona in an effort to avoid punishment for his crime.
Rhona has bravely fought back from the brink and recovered from what Pierce did to her but fans are horrified he has returned.
One wrote: “OMG ..pierce!!!! Some of us said this at work but…. they did make sure we knew he was out too!!! Wow..just wow well done and sad to see graham go…..”
A second said: “@emmerdale I did NOT see that coming!! #pearce.”
Another added: “IT’S PIERCE! Brilliant!”
A fourth wrote: “OMG What A Twist. Congratulations Emmerdale. Never See That One Coming #BestSoapEver #BestStoryline.”
Earlier this month Rhona received a phone call from victim support informing her that Pierce would soon be up for early release having served half his sentence.
There appear to have been other clues about Pierces return too.
Last week Rhona heard banging in her house and rushed to check it out only to assume it was Vanessa at the veterinary surgery linked to the cottage.
There was also the disappearance of Rhonas son Leos passport that she blamed ex Marlon Dingle for.
All have pointed to the return of Pierce, but viewers will have to wait until tomorrow nights episode to see Grahams murder from his perspective.
