Ultimately, Will is terrified of going back into prison and it's heavily likely he will as a result of the dodgy dealings Malone got him to do.
In tonight's (Monday 07 September 2020) episode things took a more sinister turn again.
Scared out of his wits, Will made a call to an old associate where he asks to buy a firearm to protect himself from Malone.
With the gun - quite literally - in the bag, Dawn Taylor (Olivia Bromley) was quick to ask what was in the package. Will was visibly tying himself up in knots trying to think of anything to say to Dawn to put her mind at ease.
As Emmerdale went off the air, viewers were left wondering if Will would come clean to Dawn.
Emmerdale continues on ITV/STV.
