New torment for Lydia

With the Dingles named after biblical figures, it’s no surprise that Samson is contemplating some Old Testament-style payback for those who have it in for Lydia.

Lydia Dingle [KAREN BLICK] (ITV)

He wants to exact some “eye for an eye” revenge, but Lydia is insisting that there be no more trouble. However, when Sam takes Lydia off to the police station to make a report, we’ll see Samson stashing a crowbar in his school bag…

Kim gets trigger happy

Kim’s drugged brandy is leaving her feeling increasingly paranoid and she’ll be seen lashing out at all those who she sees as opposing her. On her hit list are the likes of Gabby, Al, Jai, Will, Dawn and Jamie – actually, come to think of it, it might be easier at this stage listing those with whom she doesn’t have a grievance.

Kim Tate [CLAIRE KING] (ITV)

As her emotional instability intensifies, Kim will then start hearing phantom intruders at Home Farm and she ends up reaching for a shotgun, as so many previous owners of the village’s most prestigious property have done before her. But as Kim takes aim and pulls the trigger, just who is in her line of fire?

Bernice is back

There’s no such thing as a happy ever after in soapland, and any character expecting life to be a fairy tale is a naïve fool. And for an educated man, Liam can be rather unworldly and wide eyed about life. What he certainly isn’t expecting, though, is for there to be a curveball when it comes to his engagement to Leyla – yet one is heading his way thanks to the reappearance of Bernice.
