RHONA will be terrified when she finally cottons on to rapist Pierces return and realises that hes been stalking her.
The murderer – who is played by actor Jonathan Wrather in the BBC soap – was in prison for raping Rhona and kept his early release secret in order to get away with murdering her boyfriend Graham.
Emmerdale fans will know that Pierce was imprisoned for raping Rhona on their wedding day and sentenced to five years in prison.
Upon his early release, hes been hanging around the village and walking through Rhonas house while Rhona, Vanessa and Paddy are only feet away.

Meanwhile, Vanessa struggles to free herself and continue her search for Johnny.
Later, Pierce insists that hes changed and that Rhona will take him back – and Vanessa cant believe how delusional he is.
