Harriet (played by Katherine Dow Blyton) was shocked to discover her former drug-dealing partner, Will (Dean Andrews), was keeping a gun at their house as he was worried his past was going to come back and haunt him in recent scenes on Emmerdale. It seems he was right to think so as a shady character from his criminal days returns to the fold next week on the ITV soap. However, as his troubles play on his end, could he betray his lover by leaving her and turn her world upside down in the process?
The firearm’s presence in the village has certainly put an unwelcome strain on the couple’s relationship, given they’ve only started to rebuild their romance from the brinks of destruction.
Before the pair arrived in the village they’d known each other in the past as the vicar was the undercover police officer assigned to bring down the drug gang Will was a part of.
Harriet’s investigation led the pair to fall in love before the dealer was put behind bars and their dalliance came to an end.
The former jailbird then turned up in the village swearing revenge on his former lover, only for the pair to fall for each other once more, but their past could be the trigger which causes them to split once again.

A preview for Thursday’s episodes of the village-based drama landed on the soap’s official website and it clearly shows things are fraught between the lovers.
Walking out of their cottage, the vicar asks: “Are you going to be sleeping downstairs again tonight?”
With no response from Will, she continues: “Quick heads up. I’m pretty good with silences, it comes with the job.”
Finally giving an answer, the former drug dealer replies: “Yeah, I’m sure it won’t be hard for you to find a ‘friend’ to talk to.”
