The phrasing’s totally clear. 🙂
I…think she will. For a bit. If she were a real person, maybe not, but as a character in a soap? I don’t see the point of even bringing it up if she won’t give in, for at least a little while. If it were to show her growth in refusing, well, her already telling him is evidence of growth enough!
It does depend on what he blackmails her with and what he wants from her. Although, I feel we’re going down this road a lot quicker than we need to, we’re not even sure if he does blackmail her, and if it’s an actual scheme past his initial, desperate wish that she not leave.
