Soapwatch with JACI STEPHEN: Has slimy Stephen bumped off Elaine?
Stephen’s drugging of Carla comes back to bite him big time (think crocodile gnashers) when she announces she’s selling the factory for the sake of her mental health. Owen tells him that once he takes over, Stephen’s out. A frustrated Stephen trashes the factory floor, and you can’t help feeling that Owen’s skull is next.
But will Elaine be his next victim? When she refuses Stephen’s re-quest to invest in the factory, he swaps her blood pressure medication for caffeine pills, and when she has a bad fall and bashes her head, he leaves her unconscious.
Has he killed again in what is fast becoming more of an abattoir than a street? You have to admire his powers of invention, though. Balcony shove (Leo), skull crack (Teddy), drowning (Rufus), LSD (Carla – so far, still alive), and now caffeine.
In the social climbing stakes, Sally has some competition, when Aggie bids £3k for a summerhouse at a charity auction. At least it might stop her and Ed banging on about that damned scaffolding outside their house. Somebody take it down, please.

Dan’s the man
Who is Mr Right for Corrie’s Daisy? Rob Mallard, who plays Daniel, says, ‘On paper Ryan looks a better fit but Daniel’s made Daisy think less about superficial things.’ I think the stalker and acid did that.
I never thought that any topic of conversation in the Bailey household was capable of such numbing tedium as Michael and his designs, but scaffolding has taken the biscuit. Well, more of a McVitie’s factory.
In romantic news, Ken offers Adam some advice. Oh gawd. That’s like Phillip Schofield giving you reputation damage advice. K
en compares Adam and Sarah’s marriage to that of his and Deirdre’s. Double Oh gawd. The only thing that union had going for it was Deirdre’s stuffed marrow.
Ken urges his son not to throw in the towel, but will Adam listen?
Sarah, meanwhile, insists that she still loves Adam. Until Damon comes round with that next bottle of fizz, would be my guess.
After squaring up to several locals, Caleb is unaware he’s being followed when leaving. Has he been left for dead after being pushed over a woodland ridge?
The Dingle Court has always been about as funny as measles, and now the tedium gathers pace as the family convene to pass judgment on liar Caleb. The ‘court’ is thrown when he turns up, determined to stay on in the village, but will the family decide otherwise?
Charity has a much better idea – sleep with Caleb. Lonely and drunk, the pair find solace in each other (does anyone ever have sex when sober here?). That’ll endear Caleb to everyone. Not. Especially during the chaos that ensues when Charity reveals their night of passion to the pub.
After squaring up to several locals, Caleb is unaware he’s being followed when leaving. Has he been left for dead after being pushed over a woodland ridge? Or has he just developed a penchant for tree hugging?
Why do people walk so close to ridges and bridges in Emmerdale? It never ends well.
Back in the village, a number of people have returned from mystery outings. Clearly none of them to nearby Leeds, as no one has mentioned the club’s relegation. Strange, for such a football-adoring village that has even played host to a real-life Leeds player. Keep up!
Cain’s in the frame… again
Emmerdale is very fond of its ‘mystery’ figures – usually wearing the same hoodie wheeled out by the wardrobe department – and now the question is who pushed Caleb. Cain is top of the suspect list, of course. ‘It’s just another day in Paradise for me,’ says Jeff Hordley (Cain). But does his character have it in him to kill his own brother? ‘I think there is always potential for anything with Cain. If he’s pushed in the wrong direction or flies off the handle, anything can happen.’
Police grill Nish over his wife’s ‘accident’
Suki has been discharged from hospital and is once again stuck with her controlling husband Nish
Has the Panesar shop sold anything in the last month? Or the last three, come to that? Suki alienates customers, most of whom end up storming out without buying anything. Then Billy smashed the place up.
Now Suki can’t work because she’s had a run-in with a staircase. Not a moment too soon, in my opinion. Gosh, she’s a misery.
Anyone would be, married to controlling Nish, but surely the real mystery is why he’d want to be with her.
Having been discharged from hospital, she’s again stuck with her husband (above), who is concerned that Suki might have tried to harm herself. Eve tells Suki that she must report Nish for pushing her. But did he?
Not again. Either get it together, or don’t. Honestly, Eve, if you’re after romance there are thousands of potential lady friends just a few Tube stops away (or you could visit Emmerdale where they’re a dime a dozen); why keep putting yourself through this?
When Nish is taken in for questioning about domestic violence, Suki is left wondering who called the police. Nish is not happy. Why not? He should probably be jumping for joy at the prospect of another spell behind bars, if only to escape the walking Mogadon that is Suki.
