Emma on the ropes

She ad­mits to Finn that she was on the mo­tor­way bridge when James died

TV Times - - Soaps -

It’s some­times dif­fi­cult to spot when Emma Barton is be­hav­ing oddly, as her de­fault set­ting isn’t far from full-on nut­ti­ness. But when Finn spots her up at Wylie’s shov­ing a note into her pocket, he senses that his mum is hid­ing some­thing – and so be­gins a chain of events that leads Emma to open up about what re­ally hap­pened on the day James died.

Back at home, Finn searches his mum’s pock­ets and finds the crum­pled pa­per, which has been ripped in two and reads: ‘I do not.’

It is, of course, the mes­sage James wrote when Emma went tonto and held him cap­tive.

A shaken Emma ad­mits that it’s James’ writ­ing and, as she breaks down, Finn stops him­self from prob­ing fur­ther. But there’s no hold­ing back when he later finds out that his mum got rid of her wed­ding dress. ‘Finn knows the his­tory of that dress,’ says Joe Gill, who plays him. ‘He thinks it’s the one thing his mum would keep.’

As Finn grills the nurse, Emma ad­mits she got rid of the gown be­cause she had found out about James and Moira. Smelling a rat, Finn de­mands to know the full time­line of when she found out about the fling, and a row en­sues in which Emma ad­mits she was on the bridge when James was killed. Is it now just a mat­ter of time be­fore Finn dis­cov­ers that she had a hand in his fa­ther’s death?
