Suzy (played by Martelle Edinborough) had been harbouring a secret for months on Emmerdale but after confessing all to Vanessa Woodfield (Michelle Hardwick) earlier this week, the truth finally came out. Moira Barton (Natalie J Robb) was devastated to discover the newcomer to the ITV soap had given her daughter, Holly Barton (Sophie Powles), the money for the drugs on which she overdosed and died. The businesswoman was desperate to keep this connection under wraps but this might be because she knows the police will find out this isn’t the only death she has been a part of.

Also in this week’s episodes, Dawn Taylor (Olivia Bromley), was given the heartbreaking news her best friend Beth had died of a drug overdose.

A few years ago following her arrival in the village, Dawn had managed to get herself clean but her friend struggled to stay on the straight and narrow.

It was her other friend and current drug user Jade (Abigail Uttley) who told her what had happened and the mother of one couldn’t believe what she was hearing.

This was because the last time Dawn heard from her best friend, she was getting back on track with her life and was trying to stay off the drugs.

Therefore, someone could have possibly lured her back to the addiction she had been struggling with for years and this could be down to Suzy.

Taking to Twitter, viewers of the show shared their theories, with Jess writing: “Dawn’s new long-term best friend’s death is well gonna be linked to Suzy #Emmerdale.”

“Is Dawn’s dead friend gonna be linked to Suzy? #Emmerdale,” Swalk added on the social media platform.

Rachel posted: “Do we really need two drug storylines at the same time? What’s the betting Dawn’s new, now dead, best friend has links to Suzy #Emmerdale.”

With this in mind, there could be a reason as to how Suzy is connected to Beth and why she could have also played a part in her death.

When they were friends, Suzy and Holly could have met Beth whilst going out and partying and she could have been in the midst of her addiction.

Going to be linked to Suzy

When she heard Holly had died through the grapevine, Dawn’s friend could have decided she was going to try and get herself clean.

This would have meant cutting contact with Suzy to avoid any temptation and try to find a new group of friends to hang around with.

She would have also found herself a new career path as she wouldn’t have wanted to continue with sex work as she had her daughter, Clemmie.

However, earlier this year, she could have bumped into Suzy, who was now partying with Leyla Harding (Roxy Shahidi) and taking drugs with her.

Although she would have tried to resist temptation, Suzy and Leyla could have called Beth boring for not getting involved.

Therefore, with pressure from her peers, Beth would have started taking drugs again but she would have quickly gone back down a dark path.

Starting on cocaine, she could have moved onto heroin and this is what would have led to her overdose as she would have wanted more and more.

Having goaded her and pressured her into relapsing, Suzy would have played a big part in her death.

Only time will tell if she realises she had a connection to Dawn’s friend but this would mean she would make a lot more enemies.

Is Suzy going to become one of the most hated characters in the soap’s history as she has played a part in a lot of people’s trauma?

The actress who plays Suzy, Martelle, has spoken about her character’s link to Holly and how the pair were connected because they ran in the same circles with wedding events.

Martelle explained: “On the party scene, drugs were involved and they took occasional drugs together.

“One particular evening, Suzy couldn’t make it to see her dealer and she asked Holly if she would go and pick the drugs up for her, gave Holly the money to pick up the drugs, and Holly then went and got her own drugs and then overdosed on these drugs.

“She doesn’t want anyone to know that she knew Holly, and she becomes really scared and worried – not that her cover has been blown as she’s not trying to hide anything, but she doesn’t realise the connections and now that she does, she’s scared that people are going to blame her for things.”

The actress who plays Vanessa, Michelle, has also offered her take on her character finding out about Suzy’s past.

Michelle said: “She is devastated. She thinks Suzy isn’t the person she thought and even says that every day they’ve been together has just been a lie.

“When Vanessa thinks about Johnny, she realises how scary that is, Suzy has been with her child when she’s potentially been high.

“I think Suzy is really good at hiding things and at one point, Vanessa even says that she’s been taken for a mug because Suzy’s so good at lying. She had no idea.”

So could this be another indication Suzy is to blame for someone else’s death?

Emmerdale airs weekdays at 7:30pm on ITV, with an hour-long episode airing on Thursdays.
