Speaking ahead of the episode, Mark – who plays Marlon – said: “He is not a fan of Al at all, Marlon loathes Al most of all. It was Al who broke up his marriage and wrecked his domestic life.”
He added: “The episode puts Marlon and Al in the last situation that either of them would pick and watching them try and get their heads around each other and in the middle of it all is Ellis.”
As the atmosphere starts to become frosty, Marlon may well feel compelled to make a life-changing decision and decide to end his feud with Al.
Although the pair don’t like each other, Ellis clearly looks up to Marlon and this may make Al realise they will have to get on if he’s going to have a better relationship with his son.
Will Marlon realise he can’t carry on his ongoing feud with Al and instead, choose to put the past behind them in a huge twist?
