Emmerdale: Matty accidentally stabs Samson

Josh has been causing trouble since he arrived in the village, but things escalated when he began taunting Matty.

At The Hide, Josh made inappropriate comments to Matty’s wife Amy, making her so uncomfortable she left. Matty then had to close up by himself and was left alone with Josh and Samson.

Samson initially told Josh to stop, but then turned on Matty and told his pal that Matty is transgender. Josh then began making transphobic remarks to Matty.

He then tried to steal cash from the till, with Samson joining in and demanding Matty hand over the cash. Matty remained calm and told the pair to go away.

He began clearing up and picked up a tray and a knife. Josh then pushed Samson into Matty and he fell onto the knife Matty was holding.

Matty was later arrested for the stabbing, with Samson keeping quiet about what really happened.

Sam Hall teases the reason Samson tells the truth

Samson eventually does the right thing after allowing for Matty to get punished for something he didn’t purposely do.

With Samson having a change of heart, actor Sam Hall has shared the reason behind the character’s U-turn.

Speaking to Entertainment Daily! and other media, Sam shared: “As we’ve seen previously in storylines, he sometimes says the wrong things and gets persuaded fairly easily by people through either fear or fear of the unknown.

“In the end, he always comes out to do the right thing because, from a parent’s point of view, Sam has always taught Samson to do the right thing. And, Lydia has always backed up Sam’s views on coming clean and doing the right thing. So, however wrong Samson does, I feel like he always comes out in the end to do the right thing and reverse what wrong he’s done.”

And, on this occasion, Sam has revealed the true reason why Samson has chosen this moment to fess up. He explained: “I think it’s his own conscience, I really do.

“I do think his morals are very deep down, correct. I think, in the end, it’s himself that thinks ‘look, Matty’s family, this isn’t the right thing to do. We need to do what’s right here.’ I do think it’s him.”
