Scene of the Week (14-18 August 2017)

In what was a great week of Emmerdale, there were many moments that could have made my Scene of the Week choice but ultimately Emma experiencing flashbacks from James’s final hours stole the show. Cleverly using those memorable scenes from Super Soap Week, we were able to relive Emma’s haunting thoughts – first beginning with just the eerie sounds surrounding her at Wylies, to her standing on and watching those fatal moments play out. We’re not used to these effects on Emmerdale, but used sparingly like this was hugely effective, making it powerful and chilling. It works for someone as unhinged as Emma and we were right there with her in the past. Gillian Kearney’s performances are always multi-layered and captivating so perhaps we could have experienced this scene without the cameos from Super Soap Week, however their inclusion gave it a special dimension and worked well in the lead up to her confession.
