Emmerdale‘s Dawn Taylor has been blackmailed by Lucas’s father Alex, but managed to outsmart him in an unexpected move.
In tonight’s (March 16) episode, Dawn (Olivia Bromley) hid the truth from her husband Billy Fletcher (Jay Kontzle). Her ex di lei (Liam Boyle) had asked Dawn to help him out of debt or else he would not agree to Lucas’s adoption di lei.
As a result, Dawn couldn’t partake in Billy’s excitement over becoming a dad to Lucas. She also lied to him, saying she would go to the dentist when, in fact, she had to comply with Alex’s requests di lei.

Upon discovering Kim’s money wasn’t enough, Alex forced Dawn to deal drugs in his place.
“I’m doing this on my own?” an incredulous Dawn asked when she realized she would be the one dealing.
“I can’t afford to get caught again,” Alex simply said.
Surprisingly, the police arrived in the middle of their deal.
Under the eyes of Billy and Will, who had only just got to the scene, Dawn was handcuffed and brought to the station with Alex.
“This is her losing everything,” Will said.
