Emmerdale viewers are already pointing the finger at Gabby and Ross in the new Who Killed Emma? storyline © ITV Emmerdale viewers are already pointing the finger at Gabby and Ross in the new Who Killed Emma? storyline There have been more than a few unanswered questions since Emma Barton's death on Emmerdale last week, and tonight's episodes confirmed that viewers were right to be suspicious.

Tonight (October 12), the soap launched its 'Who Killed Emma Barton?' storyline as it was confirmed that Emma (Gillian Kearney) was murdered when it initially appeared she had taken her own life after she fell from a viaduct.

With the shocking news being delivered to Ross and Pete in the middle of Finn Barton's funeral day, Emmerdale viewers were taken on a real rollercoaster tonight as Finn's heartbreaking funeral scenes left some fans devastated while others brushed off their deerstalkers to commit to the new mystery.

Right now there are a couple of possible suspects, but it's Gabby Thomas (Rosie Bentham) who's found herself on the end of most viewers' accusatory fingers more often than not:

Gabby was caught at the centre of Emma's exit story when she was left furious and swearing revenge after getting her hands on the damning footage which shows Emma manipulating Ashley over James's death.

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