Emmerdale shock as vicar Harriet murders DI Malone to save Dawn Taylor's life – but fans think he will survive AGAIN

EMMERDALE villain DI Malone was finally killed tonight – by vicar Harriet Finch.

The morally flexible clergywoman – who is played by actress Katherine Dow Blyton in the ITV soap – smashed him over the head after finding him trying to force her step-daughter Dawn to take a heroin overdose.

However fans think he will survive after he previously survived another kill attempt.

Earlier Malone forced Dawn into the cottage before pulling a gun on her and giving her the option: "Heroin all over the place or a bullet in your head."

He added: "It doesn’t have to be like this, I gave you an option. It’s just like falling asleep, warmth spreading up your arm all this stress melting away.

"All that’s left is peace and calm. I know you’re scared of leaving your loved ones.

"Billy will find a new girlfriend, one that will keep him out of prison instead of putting him back there.

"Your dad will be upset but looking after Lucas will give him a whole new purpose in life. Harriet will see him over the worse and then quietly let him go.

"He doesn’t have to know about me. You’re too much trouble Dawn, you lack responsibility. You’re immature, chaotic and you drag everyone down.

"You’ve had a good run now it’s time for you to go. Pick it up, there’s a good girl. No pain, no violence, your old friend’s waiting for you."

But as Dawn went to grab the heron to take her own life, Harriet sprang into action and killed Malone with a heavy blow from behind.

Viewers were in shock at the scenes but think he is going to survive and take revenge.

One wrote: "Well if he's survived that too he may as well be called the terminator"

A second said: "Why does it feel like an awful pantomime"

Another added: "Yes Harriet!! Let’s hope that evil t**t is dead!!"
