On the most recent episode of the ITV soap opera Emmerdale, the Dingle family was still being questioned about Craig Reed’s passing, with many making up tales.
In Tuesday’s episode of Emmerdale, Karen Blick’s character Lydia Dingle persisted in asking her family members about the circumstances surrounding the death of her rapist Craig Reed (Ben Addis).
When asked for his alibi, Danny Miller’s character Aaron Dingle struck back, making Charity Dingle (Emma Atkins) uncomfortable when Aaron shifted his attention to her.
Will Ash’s character, Caleb Milligan, soon shared his story of the day he revealed everything.
He neglected to mention, though, that that day he started an affair with Tracy Metcalfe (Amy Walsh).
In addition, Charity made up the events of the day Craig was discovered dead, leaving fans to speculate about the real person responsible for the rapist’s demise.
Using social media, some viewers conjectured that someone other than Dingle was responsible for his murder.
On X, which was formerly known as Twitter, a fan wrote: “#emmerdale What a bunch of shit this evening. It’s obvious that it’s Craig’s secretary because he also abused her. That’s my hypothesis.
It’s his secretary, Chrissy exclaimed. Was she not content with him? #Emersdale.
Jason said, “Who struck Craig dead? Okay, I’ll take Craig’s secretary or Samson! However, since it’s a soap opera, we might discover that Lydia had a bad dream and wakes up tonight! #Emersdale. As in
Fans of Emmerdale may remember that Lydia was sexually assaulted by Craig last month at their place of employment, and that she spent weeks concealing the incident from her loved ones.
Is it possible that Craig also attacked his secretary, who might have killed him in retaliation? Did she join forces with Lydia or someone else from the Dingle family to end Craig’s life?
Producer Laura Shaw stated earlier this year to Express.co.uk and other media outlets: “Many people [behind the scenes] have said, ‘Oh no, not Lydia, you can’t do that to lovely Lydia.’” That’s something that a lot of people have said to me, and I believe it helped me realize how crucial it is to play it with someone like Lydia because rape doesn’t just happen to bad people.”
