Emmerdale fan theory: Samson may blackmail Craig over Lydia’s assault

Fans reckon that Samson will be selfish... again!

As it stands in Emmerdale, Samson’s just lost his place on work experience with Craig and is taking things out on Lydia.

He’s not happy that she’s making him stay away from Craig, unaware that he raped her.

A new Emmerdale fan theory now suggests that Samson could soon blackmail Craig.

Emmerdale: Samson lost his place on work experience

Last night (Thursday, September 21), Samson was furious with Lydia as he came home from meeting up with Craig. He’d previously been hanging out with Cathy but received a call from Craig asking him to come into work.

At home, Samson blamed Lydia as he revealed that Craig had ended his work experience. He accused her of ruining his chances because she’d decided to quit her cleaning job.

Lydia was furious and told Samson to stay away from Craig. She told him that Craig wasn’t the man he thought he was.

Mandy then became suspicious of the way Lydia lashed out at Samson and started to believe that she was having an affair with Craig and that was why she wanted to keep Samson away from the office in case he picked up on it.

Emmerdale fan theory: Samson to blackmail Craig?

A new Emmerdale fan theory now predicts that Samson will blackmail Craig over Lydia’s rape.

The fan theory suggests that Samson will find out that Craig raped Lydia and will then blackmail him to give him his job back. He might even demand lots of money from him in exchange for keeping hit mouth shut.

The fan theory reads: “Being the selfish [bleep] that he is I think if Samson finds out that Craig raped Lydia he’d try to blackmail Craig to get his job back and a [bleep] load of cash.”

But, could Samson actually blackmail Craig and suggest that he buys his silence?
