Pierce has been leaving both Emmerdale fans and Vanessa uncomfortable lately as continues to manipulate wife-to-be Rhona Goskirk.
And in a bid to warn Vanessa off his “creepy” plans, Pierce decided to set up the village vet.
The controlling character offered his laptop to Vanessa to borrow, but lined up the sex tape he recorded with Rhona the previous night to play as soon as she opened the screen.
However, things took an even more dramatic twist when Rhona walked into the veterinary services just as the graphic video started playing.

To which a hurt Rhona confronted her “best friend” and told her to “get out”.
But feisty Vanessa wasn’t going to let Pierce get away with the scheming plan and the two came head-to-head later on.
Pierce chillingly warned during the confrontation: “You’ve caused all this and you’ve made a big mistake because I’m your worst nightmare.
“If you think that was bad, sit tight because I’ll really mess you up.”
To which Vanessa replied: “You’re sick, no wonder Tess ran off with Paddy and I bet Rhona will too. Game over.”
However, soap watchers were left shocked at Piece’s next response to the vet as he said: “You know you’re a poisonous b***h.”

Viewers were quick to respond to the swear word on Twitter and asked whether it was allowed pre-watershed.
One person put: “Can you say b***h on telly at twenty last 7?!!!!!! #Emmerdale”.
While a second user added: “A poisonous b***h did I hear that right #Emmerdale.”
However, this wasn’t the only threat Pierce made and he appeared to threaten Vanessa’s son by picking up a picture of him and saying: “You have no idea what i’m capable of.”
