Emmerdale's Kim Tate fakes her death as part of huge revenge plan

Emmerdale viewers all across the nation just breathed a collective sigh of relief as, in spite of her on-screen demise this evening, legend Kim Tate (Claire King) is well and truly alive.

Yes, in a monumental twist, the soap legend faked her own death in order to plot her revenge against son Jamie (Alexander Lincoln), who viewers will know has been poisoning her for months.

Jamie, desperate to get his hands on Kim’s empire, repeatedly drugged the brandy decanter from which his mum drinks, which left her feeling woozy and disoriented.

Kim soon worked out that it was the brandy making her a shell of her former self, and quickly put into action a revenge plan in order to expose whoever it is that’s out to get her.

She confessed her theories to son Jamie, having no idea that it was he who was the mystery culprit she was searching for.

Jamie, meanwhile, worked tirelessly to try and pin the blame on Will Taylor (Dean Andrews), and believed he’d succeeded in doing just that earlier this week.

With Will prime suspect, Kim concocted a plan to ‘expose’ him on camera, as she persuaded him to put drugs in her drink.

Jamie watched the scenes unfold via his laptop, and he was delighted that Will was now officially in the frame. What he hadn’t bargained for, however, was that the plan would go horribly wrong.

The young man headed up to Home Farm in a panic after receiving an ominous phone call, where he was greeted by a policewoman and a doctor, both who confirmed that Kim was dead.

Jamie was speechless.

Spying Kim’s lifeless body from afar, the heir to Home Farm was stricken with grief, believing that his revenge plot had resulted in the death of his mum.

At this point, viewers were no doubt crying at the thought of losing the legend that is Kim Tate, but they needn’t have worried, as the mother of all twists ensued.

Kim’s body was removed from Home Farm in body bag, and taken away in a van, as a devastated Jamie watched on.

But the van soon pulled up on a roadside, where Kim, alive and well, stepped out of the vehicle to meet with Will, who hadn’t really been arrested.

You see, the whole thing was a plot to see how far Jamie would go, as Kim knew full well that it was he who was poisoning her!

And she’s planning on watching her son mourning her, before making a triumphant return to the village to destroy him.

Hell hath no fury like Kim Tate, a lesson that Jamie is soon going to learn the hard way.

Emmerdale continues Thursday June 24 at 7pm and 8pm on ITV. Alternatively, all of this week’s episodes are now available to stream on ITV Hub due to scheduling disruptions caused by Euro 2020.
