Emmerdale: Charles murdered Ethan’s mum, fans reckon after ‘clue’

Ethan's mum left when he was young

Emmerdale fans have a new theory that suggests Charles Anderson killed his ex-wife, Ethan’s mum.

Charles first arrived in Emmerdale last year as the new village vicar, working alongside Harriet.

In last night’s episode of the ITV soap (Tuesday, April 6) Charles and Ethan went out for Charles’ birthday.

However it was also revealed that Charles birthday was the same day Ethan’s mum, Charles’s wife, left.

At first Ethan said it was the day his mum “disappeared”, but Charles responded: “A little dramatic, she left that’s all.”

But Ethan said: “We never saw her again. That’s what disappear means. I never even heard the row.”

Charles told his son that he was in bed at the time and it wasn’t necessarily a row.

He said to him that he and his wife, who hasn’t been named, weren’t getting on and she made the decision to leave.

Charles reminded Ethan that his mum did call, however Ethan didn’t remember. The vicar quickly changed the subject, but fans suspect that Ethan’s mum didn’t leave, she was killed by Charles.

What’s next for Charles and Ethan in Emmerdale?

After their conversation, Ethan encouraged Charles to go on a date with Andrea.

Later this week, Charles asks Andrea out and she agrees. But Manpreet finds she’s suppressing her jealousy to see them together.
