Emmerdale: Is Malone dead?

Some fans are hoping that this is the end of Malone now and he really is dead.

In a Digital Spy forum, one fan wrote: “Please let him actually be dead this time. Can’t take much more of this ‘Lazarus’ act.”

Another added: “Is this finally the end for Malone? Please tell me this is the end.”

Malone to survive but go to jail?

However another theory is that he survived, but Dawn managed to record their encounter and he will end up going to prison.

In the forum, a viewer said: “I can’t see that killing him but hopefully they call the police on him. He’ll spout his usual [expletive] not knowing Dawn recorded their whole conversation which she’ll play, game over.

A fan tweeted: “Enjoyed tonight’s episode of @emmerdale though I’m hoping for Malone to pull through. @MarkWomack61 plays the character amazingly and a good villain is needed for way longer.

“I’m probably going to be crying like a little [expletive] when the storyline ends.”
