What an episode! The moment many Emmerdale fans have been waiting for – Maya Stepney’s (Louisa Clein) horrific abuse of Jacob Gallagher (Joe-Warren Plant) was finally uncovered. Is this the end of the road for the pervert teacher?
Liv Flaherty (Isobel Steele) was the one to find out after discovering Maya in her boyfriend’s bed.
It was tough viewing as tormented Jacob was being forced by his teacher to do things he didn’t want to do – one was to hurt Liv in the way he has, and the other was to sleep with her.
He brutally dumped Liv by simply blurting out the words ‘you’re dumped’, and he was later clearly in absolute anguish over what he’d done.
But instead of allowing him to deal with his emotions, creepy Maya promised to make him feel better, and encouraged him to go upstairs. The teen told her he didn’t want to, but she pressured him into sex by making him feel bad if he didn’t.
Liv had been gutted at the turn of events, having come to the decision she’d sleep with Jacob in a bid to rekindle his interest in her. She cried on Gabby’s shoulder, sobbing: ‘Who wants someone like me anyway?’
It was heartbreaking to see, but thankfully Liv is one feisty teen and she wasn’t about to just let things go. She headed over to Jacobs to talk to him, and when he wouldn’t answer the door, David told her to just go on through.
As she made her way through the house she heard voices coming from Jacob’s bedroom, and heard Jacob tell Maya he loved her. She also heard them make plans to run away and be together.
Jacob came to the door and was horrified to see her stood there, trying to hide who was in the room behind him. But Liv pushed her way in, and discovered a half dressed Maya in his bed.
As Jacob and Maya had tried to protest it wasn’t what it looked like, Liv clearly knew better and stormed off.
Has Maya’s reign of abuse finally come to an end?
