Emmerdale fans were lost for words when Pierce was revealed as Graham Fosters mystery killer after weeks of speculation.

The murdering rapist has now set about stalking Rhonas every move, creeping into her house while she sleeps and stroking her face.
In an upcoming episode, Pierce takes his evil plan to get Rhona back in his arms up a notch.

But when the call ends, Pierce beams and says Rhona has now served her purpose.
Will Rhona go along with Pierce’s evil plan?
And will Vanessa ever see the light of day again?
Actor Jonathan Wrather – who plays Pierce in the ITV soap – has hinted that Rhona won’t go down without a fight against Pierce.
He told HOAR Online: “Thats the thing would she get revenge? Has she got it in her?
“Shes feisty and she doesnt stand for anything. She could get some ingenious revenge or she could be terrified.
“It will be terrifying without doubt that Pierce is out and whats he going to do? The effect it has on her can go a number of different ways and we will see that.
“Certainly she reacts in a way that we dont know what she is capable of.”
He also revealed that Pierce is so deluded he thinks hes saving Rhona from Graham: “He has a logic to what he has done. He is on a crusade. He has a sociopath or psychopath way of absolving oneself from the reality hes very good at that.
“He rescues Rhona if a few people take a hit, so be it. He is fixated on her. Its the least he can do given their past, thats his main focus.”
