Since arriving in Emmerdale, DI Mark Malone (played by Mark Womack) has caused nothing but trouble, and during Monday night’s episode of the ITV, viewers saw Will Taylor (Dean Andrews) hospitalised after he was beaten up by Malone’s men. But could Will’s involvement in an organised crime gang ruin his partner Harriet Finch’s position in the village?
Harriet moved to the Dales back in 2013 when she took over as the new village vicar.
Slowly, fans learnt about her history; a police officer involved in a big undercover operation for five years, faking a relationship with known drug dealer Will under the name “Michelle”.
Harriet eventually collected enough evidence to get Will sent down and he was arrested and sent to prison.
After leaving that profession, Harriet found God and decided to offer Emmerdale her services, but there is a chance she will have to flee should the Bishop find out about her link to criminal activity.

During tonight’s scenes, Harriet visited Will in hospital and asked him whether he knew who beat him up and why.
He refused to explain and this only infuriated Harriet who left to go and find out the truth.
She headed to the garage where Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley) was working on a car, after seeing her approach he said: “Heard about Will, how’s he doing?”
“How do you think he’s doing? He’s been beaten to a pulp,” she remarked. “He’s not telling me anything. So I thought you might have some answers.”
“I wish I could help but I can’t,” Cain denied and she chose to threaten action instead: “Fine I’ll talk to the police instead.”
“I wouldn’t do that if I was you. The police are involved, my advice is to steer well clear,” the village bad boy warned.
“No way, you need to tell me what all this is about,” Harriet begged and the two then left to talk somewhere quieter.
When in the safety of her cottage, Harriet exclaimed: “Mark Malone, no that can’t be right!”
“Why you so surprised, you worked with him you must’ve known he was bent,” Cain revealed but she hit back: “Of course I didn’t know!
“We were mates, we played darts together and now you’re telling me he did that to Will? How did Will get involved?”

“He didn’t want to be, none of us did but toy know what bent coppers are like,” Cain said.
After mulling things over, Harriet commented: “We were supposed to be building a life together, but instead he’s put us all in danger.”
But Cain defended Will: “He was trying to protect you and Dawn and that little lad of hers. But he’s just got out of his
depth, that’s how me and Billy got involved. Anyway, what are you going to do about it?”
“Turn him [Malone] in. He’s a police officer running a drugs ring I can’t ignore that. Do you think I care what happens to you lot right now?” Harriet stated.

Towards the end of the episode, Harriet marched back to the hopsital and had it out with Will.
His daughter Dawn Taylor (Olivia Bromley) was with him and she tried to defend her father’s actions.
However, Harriet wasn’t having any of it and not only did she end her relationship with Will, but she also asked him to move out of her cottage.
With so much at stake, will Harriet follow through with informing the police about Malone’s illegal activity and then leave the village for a while until the drama dies down?
Emmerdale airs Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7pm on ITV.
