Like many of us Christmas in Emmerdale had it’s heart warming and it’s heart breaking moments, complete with family politics galore! Just what does the last week of 2015 have in store for our favourite villagers? Read on to find out…
Ross is arrested for shooting Robert
Ross sees the police pulling up outside the pub and goes in to try and warn Aaron. DS Hart explains that Aaron’s alibi for the robbery last week, isn’t credible. Later, she goes to talk to Ross who denies being involved in the robbery, but when she clocks Sarah’s new trainers and then makes another very interesting observation, she’s soon back with a search warrant.
DS Hart finds evidence that links Ross with the crime scene of when Robert was shot. Ross tells Debbie he had nothing to do with it and she seems to accept this, but the pressure is now on him.
With the news about Ross’ arrest, Andy is forced to make an admission to Robert whilst Debbie gives Ross a false alibi for the night of the shooting. Pete is worried for Debbie as he knows she’s lying as Andy has filled him in on the deal him and Ross made that lead to Robert being shot. Ross is in for a shock of his own when Robert pulls a gun on him and soon it all comes to a head for Ross and Debbie.
After a visit to see Charity in prison, Debbie decides she has to get out of the village and gives Andy an ultimatum about the kids. Just as she’s about to set off Ross spots her; will he let her go and will she manage to take the kids with her?
Old flame reignites for Chas and Gordon?
Although Aaron couldn’t have been less pleased to see his father again, it seems that Chas has had a different reaction. When Diane finds Gordon’s wallet, Chas is secretly pleased to have an excuse to see him again and the pair meet up.
Later in the week, she even goes as far as faking a hangover so she can meet him again but is left shocked by what he tells her. They end up talking about what’s happened to them both since their split, but is Gordon telling the truth? Chas surprises herself when she kisses Gordon and she knows that Aaron isn’t going to be happy.
