Emmerdale: Harriet’s death

In last night’s episode (Sunday, October 16) Harriet and Kim both went to look for pregnant teenager Amelia Spencer.

Amelia set off to meet her boyfriend Noah for a picnic. However as she walked up the hills alone, the wind picked up knocking her over, sending her into early labour.

When Dan learnt his daughter was out in the storm, his girlfriend Harriet went out looking for her.

Kim also discovered Amelia was in trouble and set out on her horse to find her.

Harriet took a quad bike but ended up crashing when she swerved to avoid a falling tree.

She fell down into a ravine, but the quad bike followed and left her trapped.

Soon Kim came along and helped free Harriet.

However the quad bike exploded sending Kim flying.

Kim landed, hitting her head on a rock.

The episode ended on a cliff-hanger leaving viewers wondering if Kim or Harriet would die.

However in tonight’s episode, Kim came to. She went to check on Harriet, but she was dead.

Sam’s life in danger

Meanwhile at Moira‘s farm, Nate, Belle and Sam were trying to sort out the cows.

But as they became terrified of the storm, they took off.

Nate and Sam ran away from the cow stampede. But as Nate tripped and fell in the path of the cows, it looked like he could be in danger.

Sam managed to jump over a hay bale seemingly to safety.

However when the cows had passed, Nate got up and he went with Belle to check on Sam.

They were both horrified to find Sam had been impaled on a piece of tractor machinery.
