Harriet Emmerdale locked in cellar

Emmerdale fans have been left baffled over one thing after last night's episode...

Emmerdale fans have been left asking questions after Harriet Finch's self-imposed punishment saw her being locked in a cellar.

Viewers will know that the village vicar (played by Katherine Dow Blyton) has been struggling with what happened to DI Malone last year after he was killed by Dawn Taylor in self defence.

Although Harriet wasn't guilty of the crime herself, she helped Dawn cover up what happened, and recently moved the body to a new hiding place with the help of Will Taylor.

But while Dawn's killer secret is safe for now, Harriet is struggling with the burden of the lie and has slowly started to unravel.

Grave danger 

The tipping point for Harriet came last week when the grave where Malone's body had once been hidden was exhumed.

The stress of what might be found all became too much and newcomer Charles noticed that Harriet was in need of some help.
