Airs Monday 15th July 2024 at 7.30pm on ITV1.

In Monday’s episode of Emmerdale, tensions reach a boiling point as the ongoing feud between the Dingle family factions culminates in a shocking physical altercation. The long-standing conflict, centered around Sam Dingle’s son Samson and Cain Dingle’s stepson Matty, takes a dramatic turn when Sam punches his brother Cain in a fit of rage at the Woolpack.

Josh shoved Samson on to Matty who was holding a knife. But Matty’s gone to prison and Samson’s hushed up his friend’s responsibility.

The root of the dispute lies in Samson’s false accusation against Matty, claiming he was stabbed by him at the Hide. Despite the general consensus that Matty, known for his gentle nature, would never commit such an act, Samson has maintained his story. Many suspect that Samson is actually covering for his troublesome friend Josh, but Sam and his wife Lydia have stood by their son’s account.

Lydia overheard Josh threatening Samson, warning him not to tell the police the truth about what happened in the Hide.

However, the truth finally comes to light when Lydia discovers Samson’s deception. Sickened by the revelation, she insists that Samson come clean to the authorities. This decision creates a rift between Lydia and Sam, with the latter wanting his son to flee to avoid legal consequences. Lydia, determined to do the right thing, stands her ground and convinces Samson to confess.

The situation is particularly dire for Matty, who has been struggling in prison while trying to conceal his identity as a transgender man. The original conflict with Josh stemmed from this very issue, adding layers of complexity to the already tense scenario.

In a brave move, Lydia approaches Moira, Matty’s mother, to inform her of the truth. Moira, who has been anxiously awaiting news about her son, is relieved to hear that the real story is finally emerging. She dares to hope that Matty might soon return home, safe and sound.

Meanwhile, Sam’s anger reaches its peak. Unable to contain his fury over the situation and feeling betrayed by Lydia’s actions, he storms into the Woolpack. In a moment of uncontrolled rage, Sam lashes out at his brother Cain, punching him in front of shocked onlookers. This physical confrontation marks a new low in the brothers’ relationship and is likely to have far-reaching consequences for the entire Dingle clan.
