EMMERDALE’s Dawn Taylor brutally dumps her boyfriend Billy Fletcher after struggling to cope with the guilt of killing Malone.
Dawn shot Malone three times after he tried to force her to take her life by overdosing on heroin – and finally murdered the corrupt policeman.
Malone had woken up after being knocked out by vicar Harriet, but his revenge was short lived as Dawn Taylor grabbed his gun and fired three times to make sure his reign of terror was over.
Dawn then broke down and announced she wanted to hand herself into the police, but Harriet had other ideas and set about making it look like Malone had done a runner.
Next week’s episodes of Emmerdale will see Harriet try to get Dawn to stay calm when Will reveals he’s been asked to speak to the police about Malone’s disappearance.
Later, a frantic Dawn nearly spills the beans about Malone’s murder to Billy, but ends up dumping him instead.
Meanwhile, Will starts to worry when DS Wise implies that Will is a suspect in Malone’s disappearance.
The following day, Dawn panics when Harriet reveals that Will is being kept in for questioning.
Later, when Will finally returns, he asks Harriet if she and Dawn know anything about Malone’s disappearance.
But he’s interrupted by the front door slamming as Dawn rushes out.
Will and Harriet manage to catch up with Dawn and Billy in the street.
But as they’re confronting each other, viewers will see DS Wise observing their argument from a distance.
Will he realise the family are hiding more than they’re letting on?
And might Billy question Dawn and get to the bottom of what’s going on?
If so, will Billy take the fall for Dawn?
