Soon things get dangerous when the camp fire is ready to light and only Arthur and Archie are present.

A spoiler picture shows the fire is lit, but what trouble will the boys cause with it?

Previous incidents

Last year, Archie returned to the village to live with dad Jai after the sudden death of his mum, Rachel.

Although Arthur wanted to help Archie at first, he soon started to become jealous of the attention he was receiving, especially from Arthur’s mum Laurel.

Before Arthur’s bullying came to light, he punched Archie causing him to fall unconscious and convinced him no one wanted him around, causing Archie to run away.

Arthur pinned Archie’s bruises on family friend Jimmy King.

After bullying Archie for months, the truth eventually came out.

With the adults now aware of Arthur’s cruel behaviour, Archie began to use this to his advantage, threatening to get Arthur in trouble if he didn’t do as he said.

Another incident occurred where Archie fell off a bookshelf he had climbed.

However, Archie told his family that Arthur had pushed him.

Will the two boys ever be able to put the past behind them and be friends?

Emmerdale is on next week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7pm on ITV.
