Kim wages war on Gabby over Thomas after Emmerdale exit shock
If we know one thing about Emmerdale’s Kim Tate (Claire King) it’s that she’s a woman who’s used to having things her own way – and it’s a brave person who tries to stand up to her.
Gabby Thomas (Rosie Bentham) is probably not someone Kim would think of as a brave person. Certainly the way she’s currently reacting to being jilted by fiancé Nicky Milligan (Lewis Cope) is not the way Kim would handle things.
Nicky told Gabby on their wedding day that he couldn’t marry her because he’s gay, and the whole engagement had been a sham to help further his dad Caleb (William Ash)’s ambitions to get his hands on the Kim Tate empire.
Since then, Nicky and Caleb have settled into village life. Caleb has finally been embraced by the Dingle family and has even drunk from the ceremonial welly. Nicky has started a new relationship with chef Suni Sharma (Brahmdeo Shannon Ramana), and there are plans for him to go into business with Nate Robinson (Jurell Carter) and – possibly – Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley).
This has all left Gabby upset and irate. She can’t move on from being humiliated by Nicky, and seeing him and Caleb around the village is a massive ordeal for her. While Kim has advised her to front things out – which is what Kim would do, with probably a bit of revenge thrown in for good measure – Gabby has decided the only option is to leave the Dales.
This, of course, would mean taking Thomas with her. While Kim could probably cope with losing Gabby, she is not happy that she won’t be seeing her grandson grow up in the village.
In Monday (September 11)’s episode, Gabby was still pressing ahead with her plans to sell HOP, telling Suni and Victoria (Isabel Hodgins) that the idea was to ‘build up the business until I can cash out to the highest and fastest bidder.’
Kim was fuming that Gabby was still insisting on selling. ‘I hoped I’d helped you see sense,’ she told her. ‘Putting your own hurt before your child’s needs – it’s beyond selfish, even for you.’
Laurel (Charlotte Bellamy), who was sitting nearby with Thomas, said Kim was being a ‘bit cruel.’
‘Cruel is losing my grandson,’ Kim replied, and told Gabby she wouldn’t just let Thomas go.
‘Don’t make me bring lawyers into this,’ she threatened.
Laurel was shocked, but Gabby was totally unflustered. ‘Do it,’ she said. ‘Any lawyer will tell you that he’s my son, so I call the shots. You have no hold over me any more, Kim.’
On second thoughts, maybe Gabby is brave after all. Standing up so firmly to Kim Tate is not something most people would contemplate.
Will Kim have to concede and let Thomas go – or will she have another trick up her sleeve?
