Home Farm has always been one of Emmerdale’s most dangerous locations. Remember when it was blown up by Zoe Tate? How about when it was set fire to by Declan Macey? And let’s not forget the many deaths on the property – Tom King, Mark Wylde to name but a few…
Well, it seems that the big house will be the scene of yet more drama in the coming months thanks to a plotline that looks set to lead to the exit of one of its present incumbents.
Speaking at a press conference, new producer Iain MacLeod said: “We have a big Home Farm story coming up for summer, the seeds of which are being laid now. It may or may not include an exit for one of the characters in that sort of story group, shall we say.”
So far, so ambiguous. But with such an infamous history of fatalities on the site, you wouldn’t bet against one of the White family exiting feet first.
Current storylines for Emmerdale’s wealthiest clan include Chrissie’s paternity worries and romance with Andy, Lawrence’s strictly-no-sex marriage to Bernice and Robert’s on-off relationship with Aaron Livesy. And let’s not forget the continuing worrying presence of Chrissie’s shifty son Lachlan. Will one of them be meeting their maker later in 2016?
