Emmerdale fans spot another HUGE blunder in Laurel’s kidnap ordeal as loved ones desperately try to find her: ‘This is a farce!’
Emmerdale fans spotted another huge blunder in Laurel Thomas’ kidnap ordeal during Thursday’s hour-long episode.
In tense scenes Laurel has feared to her life after being kidnapped by teen Marshall’s deluded father Colin, and in the latest show she gave up her chance to escape to try and convince him to let her go.
Following a tense scene between the pair on a bench, viewers were quick to notice that Laurel could have ran away from Colin in that moment, and that despite being tied up, she didn’t catch the attention of anyone passing by.
Laurel was supposed to be on her way to India to support her husband Jai during his father Rishi’s funeral, and her disappearance started to concern her loved ones.
Jai and her best friend Nicola called the police, but by the team they reached Colin’s house, Laurel was nowhere to be found.
