Last week’s Emmerdale episodes saw Billy (played by Jay Kontzle) get drawn into Max’s (Jordan Reece) dark schemes, despite his brother Ellis’s (Adan N’Jie) best attempts to steer him away from crime.
Fans of the ITV soap were shocked when they saw Billy organise a meeting with the villain.
Billy agreed that he would help Max with whatever it was he was planning but that wasn’t enough for the baddie who couldn’t resist taking a swipe.
He revealed he would have left him alone if he hadn’t told him to back off and “boss” him around.
Billy’s involvement in his schemes could put both of the brothers in danger and give Ellis more pain after his recent stabbing.
In upcoming scenes, Max will go over with Billy his plans to steal from a van and tasks Billy to do his dirty work for him.
However, in a big twist Billy will have tipped off the police about what is going to happen and they stop the robbery before it can take place.
DS Sanders (Clare Yuille) is to warn Billy he cannot ensure Max won’t find out about Billy’s betrayal.
The decision to tip off the police then starts to look like a huge mistake by Billy as the storyline takes a dark and sinister twist.
Max clearly knows exactly what has gone on and heads to Tall Trees to wait for Billy, with a gun.
Billy doesn’t arrive though and instead April Windsor (Amelia Flanagan), Marlon Dingle (Mark Charnock) and Jessie Dingle (Sandra Marvin) return home from the village football match to find a gun-wielding Max.
Max orders Jessie to call Billy, but goes to voicemail. Billy later picks up the message and Ellis head straight into the danger.
Max points the gun straight at Billy and a terrifying tussle breaks out between them until a gunshot is heard and someone is left on the edge of death and it could be any of them at Tall Trees.
The victim could be Ellis as there is no other reason for him to be there particularly and it could finally see him off after the stabbing incident.
Billy’s past has already caught up with the pair as brother Ellis was stabbed by Kaiden and Tyler who were out for revenge against Billy.
Meanwhile, Robert Sugden’s (Ryan Hawley) exit storyline could involve sister Victoria Sugden (Isabel Hodgins) and husband Aaron Dingle (Danny Miller) turning against him.
Last night’s instalment saw Victoria find out Robert and Aaron had printed out flyers branding the man who raped her Lee a rapist and displayed them all across his workplace at the car dealership.
While Aaron had initially agreed to support his husband in his latest revenge scheme, the haulage company worker turned on him when he realised how much their actions had hurt Victoria.
Confused and angry, Victoria tried to get her older brother to understand why his plot was wrong and that she simply wanted him to support her, but it seemed to be falling on deaf ears.
As the reality of the situation set in, the chef felt so betrayed she told Robert to leave her alone for good.
Amy Wyatt (Natalie Jamieson) could also face heartbreak in upcoming scenes.
