Emmerdale fans baffled by Harriet’s gun ‘blunder’

Harriet was a police officer before she lived in Emmerdale

Fans of Emmerdale were baffled as to why Harriet Finch turned to Cain Dingle to get rid of a gun.

This week, Harriet and Billy were shocked when Dawn’s son Lucas found a gun, which later turned out to belong to Will, Harriet’s boyfriend.

Despite promising Billy he’d get rid of the gun, he told Harriet he was keeping it but would be hiding it somewhere safe.

But viewers were quick to question why Harriet would need helping getting rid of a gun, especially as there are many reasons she could do it herself.

One pointed out Cain has a criminal history and that Harriet was once a police officer.

Another questioned why she didn’t bury the gun as she lives in the countryside.

Fans of the show know that before her life in Emmerdale, Harriet was a police officer.

It was during that time she met drug dealer Will and began a relationship with him under the name ‘Michelle.’

But little did Will know, his girlfriend was an undercover police officer.

After Will was arrested, Harriet eventually left the police and became a vicar.

Why does Harriet need Cain to get rid of the gun?

Harriet and Will reunited last year after she discovered he was the one who had been stalking her.

Will moved in with Harriet and his daughter Dawn but it hasn’t all been smooth sailing.

With Dawn not completely sure if her father has changed, she was furious when she thought her dad stole Liam Cavanagh’s wallet.

Dawn has no idea what happened with Lucas and the gun, but will Billy tell her the truth?

And how will Will react when he discovers his gun is gone?

Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
