Meanwhile, at the church, the wedding guests get settled ahead of Kim’s arrival.
As word her arrival is imminent, the guests head outside to see the spectacle of the elegant Kim arriving on horseback.
Talking about Kim’s hostility towards her, she added: “She’s marking her territory, like the b**** she is.”
“Marking her territory?” Will asked, fuming, to which Harriet responded: “She knows I’m a threat, Will! She can smell it.”
“What, just because you’re my ex?” Will asked, leaving Harriet furious.
“Oh, that’s it, is it?” She questioned. “That’s all I am to you.”
Later, Harriet admitted she hadn’t stopped loving Will, explaining: “I guess that’s what 20 years of history does.”
“What do you want me to say?” Will asked his old flame, unsure of how to react.
“That you can’t marry her,” Harriet pressed, adding: “After all she’s done to Dawn!”
She argued: “We were so good together, and I know I destroyed all that, and everything that happened with Malone…”
“Should be left in the past,” Will cut in, to which Harriet shouted: “Pushed you into the arms of that monster!”
As Will got up to leave, Harriet insisted he wouldn’t be happy with Kim.
With Kim aware that Harriet is pleading for Will to leave her, she’s bound to form some kind of plan of action.
After confronting Harriet, did she threaten to expose Malone’s murder?
Perhaps she threatened to kill Harriet herself in order to keep her from Will for good.
With the soap’s 50th celebrations being marked by a dangerous weather event in the village, it seems the wedding is simply the calm before the storm.
Will Kim and Harriet have the ultimate showdown as things escalate?
