Emmerdale’s Pierce Harris (played by Jonathan Wrather) was finally arrested last night after police stormed into Mulberry cottage and rescued Rhona Goskirk (Zoe Henry), Kim Tate (Claire King), Vanessa Woodfield (Michelle Hardwick) and her son Johnny. However, is this really the end of Pierce’s reign of terror or will he return to the village to get revenge on those he kept captive?
Although Rhona recorded Pierce confessing to Graham Foster’s (Andrew Scarborough) death, ITV viewers were concerned he would escape justice.
While in police custody, Pierce was interrogated for some time before the interview was stopped and the male police officer got up to leave, leaving his female colleague behind.
“Alone at last, I was waiting for you to say something, how’s the family?” Pierce remarked. “Girls must’ve grown up a lot by now? Is Ava still crazy about horses?”
“You know as well as I do, I can’t help you unless you give me something,” she replied. “You want to play this game? First move comes from you.”

Later, Pierce told both of the officers: “We both know I can unpick everything you’ve got and even if my confession were true it was gained illegally, it wouldn’t be admissible right?”
“You’d like me to strike the evidence?” The female detective asked to which Pierce replied: “That would be my preferred outcome.”
“Why? Because we went for the odd drink after work? Us and about 50 other people. Or is it because you know my daughter’s name,” she added seemingly blurring which side she stood – corrupt or straight.
“Some might see it as a conflict of interest,” Pierce claimed but she clarified: “There is no conflict, you’re guilty and that’s all there is to it.”
While the police officer seemed to be just as determined as her colleague to charge Pierce, this could just be a ploy and Pierce may wrangle his way out of a conviction.
If he does escape justice, Kim should be worried as it’s likely he’ll be out to get revenge on those that he felt stopped him from reuniting with Rhona.
Meanwhile, Kim has made it clear to Al Chapman (Michael Wildman) that if he makes one more mistake he’ll be fired.
After tricking the Tate matriarch into believing he had murdered Graham to pay off his huge debts, it’s clear Al cannot afford to be unemployed.

If she does fire the dodgy businessman, will the pair be involved in a violent confrontation culminating in Kim’s death?
In the midst of the village drama, a new online tool has predicted that some of the UK’s favourite soap characters including Kim should already be dead.
Using data based on gender, eating and stress levels the tool estimated Kim should have died in 2017 due to her numerous divorces, family feuds and the fact she’s already faked her own death.
Could the aftermath of Graham’s murder lead to Kim meeting a tragic end once and for all?

Co-founder of Dead Happy, who created the tool, Phil Zeidler said: “With killer Pierce Harris [on the scene in] Emmerdale, perhaps someone is due to meet their fate earlier than planned.
“We wanted to know who’s realistically next in line to die with stress levels and tension high in the village.”
“We see first hand, the conversations that some people are often forced to have about death and how uncomfortable they can seem.
“Death is a certainty in life, and with it comes an inevitable fall out, impacting those around us and causing somewhat of a ripple in families, finances and jobs, just to name a few.
“Our hope with this tool is to get people talking, if the tool can bring death as a topic of conversation among friends and family, then the reluctance to talk about it will be addressed and we can think more realistically about what is just a simple fact of life.”
Emmerdale airs weekdays on ITV at 7.30pm.
