Emmerdale’s Ellis Chapman (Asan N’Jie) has been on the hunt for who stuck the knife in his back, and thankfully it turns out it was only figuratively his brother.
It looked for a while like Billy Fletcher (Jay Kontzle) could have done the most terrible thing and stabbed his own brother, but it turns out that he’s not a cold-blooded brother attempted murderer. He’s just a bit lost and afraid, having got himself mixed up in some dark stuff.
But it’s now become clear as to why not only Billy has the knife, but why he didn’t want his brother heading off to review the CCTV with the police – the knife belongs to Billy for one, and after finding Ellis bleeding to death, he called an ambulance and legged it, which wouldn’t have looked good either.
It transpired that Billy had been targeted by Riley’s brothers out for revenge after he’d shown up at the club to protect Billy from Max.
Billy had stashed the knife on himself in case of trouble, so when he was confronted he pulled it out.
As things escalated he ended up legging it from the lads but he left the knife behind.
Meanwhile, as Ellis tried to get a cab, he was approached by a girl who he ended up pulling after he heroically retrieved her coat and phone from inside the closed night club.
But after she walked off and left him, it became clear she was the sister of Riley and the other boys after Billy, and she gave them the order to kill Ellis with Billy’s knife.
As Ellis walked chatting on the phone to his apologetic brother, he was set upon by the group, who buried the knife deep in his back.
Billy ran to his side and found him bleeding badly, desperately calling the emergency services to save his life.
But as they arrived, he ran.
Thankfully Ellis pulls through as we already know, but how will he react when he hears the truth about what happened?
