Emmerdale fans have been waiting for the day DI Malone (played by Mark Womack) gets a taste of his own medicine and Dawn Taylor (Olivia Bromley) might just be the one to give him the fatal dose. After all he’s put her family through, the former heroin addict might be able to use her dark past to get the corrupt cop out of their lives forever.
Dawn made the decision to turn her life around for her son Lucas, and she’s not planning on ever going back down that road again.
But with Malone threatening to set her family up with false drug charges, the Taylor’s are constantly watching their backs.
And his vendetta against them has only grown stronger since confessing his undying love for Will Taylor’s (Dean Andrews) fiancé Harriet Finch (Katherine Dow Blyton).
In recent episodes, Malone tried to send Will to jail by planting drugs in his car but he received a nasty blow to the head when the mechanic realised what he was up to.
Knowing her way around a needle, she attacks the villain killing him in the process.
Finally free from Malone’s clutches, she makes his death look like a drug overdose; perhaps her accusations drove him to do something silly.
But will she get away with it?
With Will, Harriet, Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordely) and Billy Fletcher (Jay Kontzle) all snared up in his dodgy web of illegal activity, will she call on them to help her get away with murder?
Dawn is also set to find out about Malone’s affair with Harriet and she’s left furious at their deceit.
She warns the vicar if she doesn’t come clean to her dad then she will, leaving Harriet completely torn.
But as Dawn requests urgent help with Malone’s body, will the two ladies reconnect as the secret about the affair dies with the police officer?
Emmerdale airs tonight on ITV at 7pm.
