Emmerdale and Victoria Sugden’s David Metcalfe fled the village just weeks after their recent return, only to return again – confusing ITV viewers
Video not available
Emmerdale fans were left puzzled on Thursday night, when David Metcalfe returned to the village just two days after he made a last-minute exit with Victoria Sugden.
The lovers decide to run away from the village and head to London, after his drama revolves around serial killer Meena Jutla.
Victoria eventually discovered Meena had tried to drown her during the survival challenge event in October, after video footage was discovered.
The news shakes her up and she fears somehow Meena might get out of jail and try to kill her again.
David decides they should get out of the village for a while to figure things out, as he and Victoria leave in Tuesday’s episode.
But at the start of his visit to Dales on Thursday, he returned and was in the store to his son Jacob’s surprise.
He confirmed that he was back a few hours early, with that thought Victoria was back as well.
Viewers were confused about the fact that the couple left the village again shortly after they left the previous village around October.
Cast members Matthew Wolfenden and Isabel Hodgins stopped filming until around December, after an alleged race on the show.
The characters are sad to have been gone for a while to recover from the events of the ordeal when Victoria was near death, and in January they returned for the first time.
So just a few weeks later, the couple disappeared from the village again, with fans confused about the brief exits and asking what was going on.
Thursday’s episode that saw David return just two days later only left viewers more confused, who couldn’t believe how short they were gone.
One fan tweeted: “What a quick break David,” as another said: “Waiting for David and Victoria to come back.”
A third added: “Is David back serious?” as another wrote: “David and Victoria are only away for a few days.”
Emmerdale airs at 7pm on weekdays on ITV, with an additional episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
