Emma Barton's big killer secret could finally be exposed in Emmerdale after Faith Dingle uncovered the truth in a shock twist.
Emma (Gillian Kearney) has spent the past five months keeping quiet about how she caused her husband James's death by pushing him off a road bridge last autumn.
Although Emma has managed to escape detection ever since then, she finally slipped up in Thursday night's double bill as she said a prayer out loud (yes, loud enough to overhear) at church and confessed to her crime.
Emma was alarmed when she suddenly heard a door slamming behind her and realised that she'd been rumbled – and it didn't take too long at all before she realised who the mystery eavesdropper was.
When Emma angrily confronted Faith for pretending to channel James during her bogus psychic night at The Woolpack, Faith hit back by discreetly warning her that she'd heard everything at the church. Uh-oh...
True to form, Emma prepared to strike again by attacking Faith with a rock outside The Woolpack, but she missed her chance when she was suddenly knocked over in the road by Harriet Finch in her van.
Despite having witnessed Emma about to attack her, Faith risked antagonising the unstable killer even further as she was loaded into the ambulance, warning her: "I know what you are and soon this whole village will too."
Sally Dexter, who plays Faith, recently spoke about the possibility that her character could uncover Emma's secret and warned that she'd definitely exploit the situation.
Sally explained: "I think it would put Emma under a lot of pressure. Faith is a good person, but she also has a darker side to her. She may well use whatever she did or didn't hear against the other person and to her own advantage.
"Faith doesn't scare easily. When you dig down, there's a Dingle core in her - she's got iron in her soul but also a bit of diamond!"
Emmerdale continues on Friday (March 24) at 7pm on ITV.
