Emmerdale fans work out explosive murder twist for Lydia's rapist Craig | The Sun

LYDIA Dingle was raped by her childhood sweetheart Craig Reed in gut-wrenching scenes.

But after last night's trip to Emmerdale, ITV viewers believe they've figured out who could step up to help her in a sinister murder plot.

The CEO portrayed by Ben Addis rocked up the village in recent weeks and rekindled a bond with Lydia Dingle (Karen Blick).

But after admitting he still harboured feelings for her and reflecting on the death of their son Toby, he forced himself on her.

Since then, the cleaner has been unable to speak her truth and, after confronting Craig, she left the job he had given her behind.

Keeping her ordeal under wraps out of fear she won't be believed, despite the pain it has caused her, Lydia went back to work at Home Farm during last night's (Thursday, September 21, 2023) instalment of the Yorkshire-based drama.

Unfortunately, Lydia wasn't able to escape her tormentor as Craig showed up in Home Farm to have a meeting with Gabby Thomas (Rosie Bentham).

The pair ended up in a heated argument as Craig told Lydia nobody would ever believe her if she was to report what had happened.

Gabby quickly intervened but, instead of supporting Lydia, she argued she should get back to work and remain professional.

Kim Tate (Claire King) was later taken aback when she spotted a distressed Lydia in the house.

The businesswoman made an attempt at getting the truth out of her employee but Lydia immediately fought back tears and walked away.

This has left fans convinced Kim could be the one to help Lydia bring Craig down.

Many viewers of the long-running drama took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to speculate that Kim may even go as far as murder for Lydia due to her never shying away from bloodshed when it's necessary.

"We all want Kim to kill Craig don't we?", one soap fan commented as another chimed in: "Glad miss chatting (Gaby) told Kim about Lydia, she will get to the bottom of things."

Another added: "Kim HAS to be involved with Craig's downfall", while a fourth viewer agreed: "Kim knows something is not right between Lydia and Craig. Soon Lydia will tell Kim he raped her!"

"Kim’s on the case already! Go girl", one fan agreed.

"Come on Kim you’re smarter than this!!!!", another jumped in.

One viewer concluded: "Another episode ending with tears!! Kim will eventually get it out of her before they bring back the happy vicar again to be moody and snappy every episode."

As mentioned above, Kim is capable of resorting to violence and even murder.
