Kim tries to turn the tables on whoever it is that’s poisoning her, plus Bernice wants to win Liam over, while Mack’s actions result in Pollard being hospitalised.
It’s your Emmerdale spoiler rundown for 31 May to 4 June 2021:
Kim sets a trap for her poisoner
By this stage, Kim will know that somebody is trying to poison her. The problem is that she’s made an enemy out of everyone at Home Farm and in its surrounding area. Hence her deciding to organise a formal dinner, the aim of which is to unmask the culprit.
To achieve this, Kim has blatantly taken inspiration from Succession, so get ready for her to announce with a dramatic flourish that she’s stepping back from the business. What she hopes, of course, is that the sniping and bickering which ensues will result in the guilty party confessing to having laced her brandy decanter with drugs. But who do we feel are the prime suspects?

The smart money has to be on either Will (seen recently loitering by the booze trolley) or Dawn (who, lest we forget, once had her own drink spiked by Kim).
Bernice wants Liam back
Bernice is finding life in the village to have moved on dramatically in her absence. Gabby wants nothing to do with her, while ex-fiance Liam is, of course, now with Leyla. However, when Bernice tries to return Liam’s engagement ring, Leyla gets into her head that she’s trying to propose and gives her a slap.
With everyone’s emotions getting a tad overwrought, Bernice ends up convinced that there’s still hope for her and Liam getting back together. Before she gets carried away with herself, Nicola tries to offer up the reminder that it was actually Gabby who Bernice returned for. Yet it looks as though it’ll take more than a few wise words to put the returnee off her plan to win back the local GP.
Mack puts Pollard in hospital
Double dealing Mack has swiped a treasured possession of Pollard’s: a coat once favoured by his late wife Val. Mack’s aim is to offer Eric a deal – the return of the coat in exchange for Aaron’s freedom. But the stress of this stand-off causes Pollard to have an angina attack.
In the aftermath of the showdown, Pollard will be rushed to hospital with current partner Brenda and former girlfriend Faith both rushing to be by his bedside. But when he comes to, the first word to come from his lips is “Brenda”. Does this mean he’s made his choice as to which woman he wants to be with?
What’s Luke’s big secret?
Vic is planning to ask Luke to move in with her, but Ethan (who just can’t resist sticking his nose in) is worried about the situation and ends up letting Wendy in on a secret regarding her son.
Following this conflab, Wendy finds herself pleading with Luke to tell her the truth. The result of this conversation sees Wendy then urging Luke not to let the past keep him from finding happiness in life. But will lips stay buttoned in the weeks to come? And what exactly has Luke been hiding?
