Welcome to our look ahead to what you can expect in Emmerdale this week.
Andy vs Robert
As Aaron’s day in court arrives, he locks eyes with Robert when he says ‘Not Guilty’, but he’s not granted bail and as Robert goads him to tell the truth, Aaron tells him he should’ve stayed dead and done everyone a favour.
Andy is struggling with the thought of Aaron being banged up for something he didn’t do and grabs a bottle of vodka before heading to the graveyard. Later, Ashley finds an inebriated Andy at Katie’s grave and thinking he is grieving, offers him counsel and is stunned as Andy tells him that Aaron is innocent.
The next day, Ashley confronts Andy wanting to know what he meant and Andy begs him to forget the conversation for the sake of his kids, leaving Ashley with a moral dilemma. He confides in Laurel who encourages him to do the right thing. He phones Andy and leaves a voicemail asking him to go to the police, except he’s accidentally dialed Robert’s phone by mistake.
An anxious Robert arranges to meet Andy and after a heated exchange, Andy finally makes an admission about the shooting. Robert is determined to call the police, but the phone is knocked from his hand and the pair take off on a car chase which ends in a deadly face off. As they both rev their engines it seems both are determined to pile headlong in to each other, but at the last minute it’s Robert that swerves. Even though they have avoided a head on collision both cars veer off the road and crash. Which of the brothers will walk away with their lives?
