The murder of Craig has cast a shadow over Emmerdale, but while fans will find out shortly, the police won’t know for sure until next week when investigations begin and potential suspects grow closer to one another.
But there are more secrets than just the murder; Caleb Miligan (William Ash) is keeping his intense love for Tracy Shankley (Amy Walsh) a secret, and Eric Pollard (Chris Chittell) is keeping his troubling diagnosis from Brenda (Lesley Dunlop).
Additionally, Samantha Giles’s character Bernice Blackstock keeps acting covertly, and Bradley Johnson’s character Vinny Ashdale doesn’t say anything about how Danny Miller’s character Aaron Dingle has been treating her lately.
The relationship between Victoria Barton (Isabel Hodgins) and Jacob Gallagher (Joe-Warren Plant) is also a dangerous secret, and it doesn’t last long when things settle down.
Next week, very few people will be speaking the truth, but certain facts are going to surface.
