Marshall has had a heartbreaking reunion with his evil father Colin in Emmerdale.

Waiting at the hospital, Jai tried to convince Laurel that it was the right thing to do to tell Marshall's father Colin about what's been going on. Furious Colin turned up to accuse Laurel and Jai of neglecting his son, warning them that he'd hold them responsible if Marshall had brain damage.
"It's on both of us," Laurel insisted. "I let him down, but so did you."
Back at home, Rishi had to break the news to a terrified Arthur that Marshall had been rushed to the hospital with suspected alcohol poisoning.
At the hospital, Laurel tried to make peace with Colin by relaying to him how devastating the whole situation is for both of them.
The nurse arrived with the encouraging news that the brain scan came back clear and that meant Marshall should be back to normal within 24 hours.
"Don't you dare do that again," Colin told his son. "I thought I'd lost you."
Laurel and Jai agreed to give father and son some time alone together, though Arthur turned up to watch the heart-to-heart moment from the door.
Marshall had a glimmer of hope when Colin said he would no longer try to tell him how to live his life but showed his true colours again by insisting this incident was a message from God that he was on the wrong path.
