Emmerdale is never short of drama and where DI Malone (played by Mark Womack) is involved, there is plenty of it. But have his illegal games finally rubbed off on push-over Will Taylor (Dean Andrews)?
The corrupt cop has caused quite the stir in the village since his arrival, exerting his power over Will, Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley) and Billy Fletcher (Jay Kontzel) by making them reluctantly carry out illegal favours for him.
The whole debacle between the three men and the detective began as Will become increasingly anxious that someone was after him.
Keeping a gun close for protection, Harriet Finch (Katherine Dow Blyton) came across the weapon and persuaded Cain to get rid of it for her, and that’s when things went from bad to worse for the iconic village bad boy.
When he accidentally shot his estranged son Nate Robinson (Jurell Carter) at the farm after mistaking him for a rustler, all eyes were on how Nate ended up in the state he was in.

But as he refused to give Cain up in a noble bid to make amends with his dad after his revenge affair with Moira Barton (Natalie J. Robb), DI Malone arrived and threatened to lock him away if he didn’t start doing dodgy jobs at his convenience.
And as time went on and Billy got caught up in the trouble, it hasn’t been looking good for the trio.
As Malone applies even more pressure onto the boys, will Will flip over to the other side in a bid to save his own skin?
In coming episodes, the police officer tells his stooges about a new job that could be very dangerous for them all.
Knowing first hand the extent of the detective’s side projects, they can’t help but feel apprehensive but know they have no choice but to partake.
Later, Will arrives at the destination of his job and is left shocked when he realises the scale of the drug order he’s being told to courier.

To make matters worse, Cain and Billy are being used as decoys to make sure the shipment goes smoothly.
But as they’re distracting the police and keeping them busy while Will does his thing, will there be more to the story?
Will has happily rolled over for the corrupt cop in the past, terrified of being locked up again.
But after Cain and Billy’s attempt to entrap the detective with his own dodgy dealings, could Malone be plotting their downfall?

One possible theory could be that Will’s role in the job is the one that gets him off scot-free.
It’s in Malone’s best interest for Will to move the drugs as quickly as possible, so will he have Cain and Billy caught for something else in the meantime?
And does Will partake in his dastardly plan?
Emmerdale airs Monday, Wednesday and Fridays at 7pm on ITV.
