    Sorry to shout, but she is amazing for her resilience towards her own mum and her aunt. For once, I am supporting her, totally.

    Absolutely. She has done the right thing in pointing the police in a certain direction and it is now up to the police force to prove if it is true or otherwise. Nothing to do with Emma any more. She may not be able to make a positive ID but she has her strong suspicions and has identified circumstantial evidence. Susan should take a step back. Tracey is well out of order and it comes close to intimidation. Emma's only mistake was in letting it slip that she had informed.

    I just don't get all this Tracy-Susan-Emma angst.

    Even if Emma goes to the police saying it was her who made the anonymous tipoff, they'll say - why didnt you say this when we interviewed you? At the time she just described an "average looking man". So either she knew it was Keith then, and didn't say so (so she could be done for withholding evidence) or she wasn't sure then so why is she now saying it is Keith?

    I dount it will make much difference to the coppers - no doubt they are looking into Keith's connections to the gang who will be going on trial. They will either find some connections or they won't.

    I doubt anything Emma says now will make a blind bit if difference.

    Agreed, Bette. And Susan was a disgrace. Has she learned nothing from getting banged up for protecting her waste-of-space brother?

    If you think that someone is responsible for a crime then it is your duty to take your suspicions to the police whether or not that person is a relative or not.

    I wish Emma had turned on her mother and reminded Susan that she got sent to jail because she haboured someone she knew had committed a serious crime.

    Stand by your guns, girl. You've got (all of?) ML routing for you (well, me at least)

    You and Sixties are talking about something else. I started this thread because I thought that Emma was being very resilient in holding to her feelings when being bulldozed by her aunt and then her mother. I don't think that is an easy thing to do (talking generally, here).

    Yes, good for her, and what world is Susan living in? She asked Emma to "let it drop" - it isn't Emma that is mounting an investigation, it's the police. Just as in the original debate about David retracting his statement, the fact remains that the information is now with the police - it can't be unsaid.

    I agree too. Who needs enemies when you have a mother like Susan? Poor Emma. . .and that jibe about George's father was bizarre. Have never liked Susan much and have actively disliked Tracey from the outset. Isn't she supposed to be busy job hunting rather than just being an interfering bully?

    Absolutely agree. Susan was a disgrace tonight. Bringing up the paternity thing was a very low blow and utterly irrelevant. Emma was right to point them in a direction that was suspicious, and as someone else pointed out it is nothing to do with her anymore. They'll investigate him and find something, or they won't. If they don't, she can apologize and admit that though it was suspicious she had to do what she had to do. They should leave her be.

    Two things stand out for me though:

    1) The wound on Keith's leg. Is it a burn? A scrape? If it is a burn, that should be fairly conclusive right there. If it is a scrape, he ought to point out what he supposedly scraped it on when "tripping over the hamster." Investigators will be able to tell if his description of events matches his injury. But we haven't heard a word about his leg injury and that'd be something they'd certainly be looking at.

    2) Tracy has either crossed or is perilously close to crossing the line into witness intimidation/tampering hasn't she? By trying to tell Emma what to say, barging into her house, threatening her, etc. If Emma is feeling really strong about it, she ought to report that to the police as well. They surely won't see that as a mark of innocence for Keith that a family member is trying to bully a witness into recanting her statement!

    I don't think it had occurred to Emma that the man might be Keith until a) she saw him limping and b) he kept saying to her "I'm so sorry, I'm so sorry". 

    No, I think when she first saw him, the way she said to david, I think it was, 'I saw him' - as in she saw someone running away - it was cleverly done, the way she said it, like at the back of her mind the man she saw was someone she knew.
    Hard to describe, but it was just the way she said it, and even as she was calling after the man as he was running off, there was something in her voice (as it had to be cos it's radio! lol) that suggested it was someone she might have recognised.

    I thought that that was in the back of her mind when she saw Keith hobbling, (cos the man had fallen over) making up the daft hamster exuse - and his reaction to knowing Emma and the kids were in danger of being burnt to a crisp.- was so OTT, it was almost like a confession!

    As I said at the time, someone like Lynda might say 'I'm so sorry, Emma' in sympathy, but it would not have been said the way Keith said it. Didn't he say something like , I didn't realise .....' or 'I didn't know ..' the end of the sentence probably being 'that YOU were there'.
    His whole 'I'm so sorry' might as well as been him begging to be forgiven, the way he said it!

Thing is listening to Susan is often like a masterclass in Radio acting even when she's going for it.

    Perhaps she can then report Missing Link Gary to the police for excessive idleness, or something more serious, and before long all the bluddy Horrobins will be banged up, with the possible exception of Radio. She will then be doing the British public a great service.

    Indeed, and another thing - Keith is according to Tracey, prostrate with melancholy at the thought that anyone might suspect him of the crime. "Pull the other one" is what Emma should have said. The Horrobin brothers, over the years have clocked up arson, burglary, possession of firearms and horse slashing amongst their crimes, and are no strangers to having their collective collar felt by Inspector Knacker of the Yard on numerous occasions. But then Tracey H is as thick as a whale omlette, and finds joined-up thinking something of a challenge.

    Absolutely agree, Bette. The more Tracey bullies her the more certain Emma is that it was Keith. Tracey is a horrible Eastenders-type blow-in who only expends energy on manipulating or bullying her family. The way she behaved in front of Keira was disgraceful. Susan has learned nothing from her time in prison.

    Anyway, Tracey has never explained why Emma should have a grudge against Keith.

    The paternity jibe was the sort of remark I would never forgive someone for.

    If Susan thinks Emma can "let it drop" she has an even poorer opinion of the Borchester police than most of us do.

    I enjoyed the shop scenes except for the line "I can't bear it - my daughter against my brother" which grated horribly.

    I cringed at the Eastenderesqueness of it. Amazingly enough, I don't need the moral dilemma spelled out for me.

    That said, I'm on Team Emma. The girl's showing courage. She's even bonding with Keira (who sadly sounds as retarded in her development as Henry. Has anyone consulted the health visitor?)

And it wasn't kind of Susan (or relevant) to bring up the paternity issue. For one thing, that was years ago, when Emma *was* a bit of a silly girl. She's now a mother of two in her late twenties, and has grown up a lot. For another, the who's the daddy issue was nothing to do with identifying someone visually. I would find it hard to forgive Susan for this, if I were Emma. Her children were put in danger - Susan's grandchildren. Brothers and sisters oughtn't to come near that in importance. But, I do like this SL now it's developed to this point, and I hope Emma sticks to her guns. She used to be such a promising character who got turned into a chavvy moron. Let's have more of the real Emma.

    Agreed - it was wishful thinking (she dseperately wanted Ed to be the Daddy) possibly coupled with a desire to hurt Will. She has no motive for wanting Keith to be the culprit.

    Indeed, and another thing - Keith is according to Tracey, prostrate with melancholy at the thought that anyone might suspect him of the crime. "Pull the other one" is what Emma should have said. The Horrobin brothers, over the years have clocked up arson, burglary, possession of firearms and horse slashing amongst their crimes, and are no strangers to having their collective collar felt by Inspector Knacker of the Yard on numerous occasions. But then Tracey H is as thick as a whale omlette, and finds joined-up thinking something of a challenge.  I'm pretty sure Tracey finds joined up writing something of a challenge.
    How thick can you be to go careering round intimidating Emma thinking that it will help Keith.

    Keith is probably prostrate wit melancholy because he is scared switless of being found out. 


    Or scared of what his bosses - the ones threatening the Dopeys who told him to start the fire - will say when they know their perfect plan has been distruped by someone who might spill tjhe beans??

    I am all for having SLs develop at a natural pace but, in this instance, would Emma not be likely to tell Ed immediately - either in person or by phone - before going round to the shop to see her Mum?

    Even the new mature, law-abiding Ed will find it hard not to warn Tracy off in person, and to take some action with Keith for endangering his wife and daughter.

    An interesting by-product of this SL would be Will discovering that George had been put in danger. Would the 12-bores stay in the cupboard? Or has the full story of Firegate not got through to Greenwood yet?

    I'm really feeling for Emma betrayed by her mother who seems to put the welfare of her criminal brother before the safety of her grandchildren and refuses to back her daughter in her hour of need. It must really hurt to be let down by your mother but she should be able to rely on her Dad, Ed and even Will to support her and lay down the law to Tracey. If Tracey then says another word they should report her to the police for witness intimidation Neil should also have words with Susan remind her how she has progressed from Horrobin to Carter and make her apologise to Emma for not giving her the backing she deserved.
    Emma is fast being rehabilitated in my eyes by this SL she has shown her fathers backbone and determination rather than her mother's weakness and vacillation. There is hope for her yet and I am willing to change my view of her through this SL.

    But, I do like this SL now it's developed to this point,  

    Absolutely, it was a really daft story line up until now.
