Emmerdale’s Billy Fletcher blackmailed by Alex after hit and run

Emmerdale: Billy and Dawn at scene where Alex was hit by a car

Billy Fletcher (played by Jay Kontzle) and Dawn Taylor (Olivia Bromley) have been fighting for custody of Lucas Taylor (Noah Ryan Aspinall) and Clemmie Reed (Mabel Addison) as Alex Moore (Liam Boyle) returned to their lives. On Thursday night, Alex failed to join the couple at their hearing meaning they were able to finally sign the legal contract to say the two children were in their custody. However, things aren’t always smooth sailing for the Emmerdale couple as Billy ran down Alex, leaving him in the middle of the road before returning to Home Farm.

Emmerdale viewers have now claimed they have worked out what is to come for the family and it’s not good news.

At the beginning of Thursday’s episode, there was a flashforward scene where Alex was laying in the middle of the road after being hit by a mysterious car.

Elsewhere, Dawn and Billy were anxious about their court hearing and were worried Alex was going to turn up and deny their custody rights.

However, Alex was preoccupied and was instead stealing drugs from the back of Manpreet Sharma’s (Rebecca Sarker) delivery van for Abbott Lane Surgery.

Meanwhile, Dawn and Billy got through the court hearing and were granted custody of Lucas and Clemmie, putting their stress and worry behind them.

The judge told them: “It seems clear from these documents, and from what social services have said, that Lucas and Clemmie are loved and well cared for in their current home.

“Mr Moore has agreed to relinquish parental responsibility, and his absence today indicated his lack of intention to reverse that decision.

“So… I am happy to grant Billy Taylor the step-parent adoption of Lucas Taylor, and Dawn and Billy, award you special guardianship order for Clemmie Reed, congratulations.”

Whilst Billy and Dawn were celebrating the good news, Alex was running from the village with his bag of drugs after he was caught by Charles Anderson (Kevin Mathurin).

Back at Home Farm, Billy and Dawn were excited with the result of the court case, calling for champagne and fish and chips, which Billy offered to go and collect.

However, his innocent drive turned his life upside down when Alex stepped out into the road whilst listening to messages on his phone before being hit by Billy.

Instead of calling an ambulance and staying with Alex to make sure he was alright, Billy drove back to Home Farm where he confessed to Dawn what had happened.

She advised he park the car in the garage before they set off in hers to go and see if Alex was still there, dead or alive.

As they turned up, the scene was flooded with police and an ambulance, leaving Billy to panic even more.

After asking the police officer if the person involved was ok, Dawn said: “Billy! Stay calm, did he see you?”

Billy exclaimed he didn’t know, leaving Dawn to add: “If he did, we have a problem… if he’s alive.”

As the episode came to an end, viewers of the ITV soap theorised Alex was going to recover from the incident but will blackmail Billy into working for him, buying his silence.

@Dbella91 claimed: “So Alex will make full recovery, blackmail Billy to return the drugs that are it the storyline here #Emmerdale.”

@DonnatellaSpace commented: “Alex will be counting them blackmail notes if he’s survived that hit. #Emmerdale”

@natashate1983 said: “Billy shouldn’t have gotten out of the car if he was not going to call an ambulance because now he is going to come around and say it was not an accident unless you give him money. #Emmerdale”

Leah Allen theorised: “Betcha Alex will say it was Charles or will blackmail Billy & Dawn again #Emmerdale”

Sam Sunner penned: “Billy’s not getting out of this one lightly. Alex will either just out him or use him for his own financial gain.”

Ryan Glendenning expressed his disappointment for the pair and wrote: “Dawn and Billy deserve so happiness they’ve been through so much #Emmerdale.” (sic)
