Another week of tense drama in Emmerdale awaits. Read on…
Has Ross’ body been found?
Pete is panicked as he watches his mum and dad head off to identify Ross’ body and tells Finn that he should prepare himself for the worst. At the mortuary, Emma and James nervously wait to see the body. Afterwards, they try to ring Pete but he doesn’t answer. It seems the horrible experience is helping rekindle James and Emma’s romance if nothing else.
Pete is convinced that the police will be knocking on his door any minute and he drops his bombshell to Debbie – he killed Ross. Debbie is reeling and can’t believe what she has been told. Pete is angered by Debbie’s reaction and when she asks that they go and find the body, he accuses her of still loving Ross. Debbie is horrified by Pete, thinking he’s another Cameron she runs out into the street and into the arms of James. Pete tells James what happened to Ross and a devastated James asks Pete to take him to the body.
Cain’s angry to learn Pete is hanging around but Moira thinks he wouldn’t attack Debbie as he worships the ground she walks on. Cain, however, points out Cameron did as well! Later, Debbie’s unnerved to see Pete in her house. He tells her he is just picking up his stuff, but he’s heartbroken to see she’s terrified of him.
