emmerdale Teenager Samson Dingle has another nasty surprise for his cousin Noah tonight (February 27).
Last week, Samson pocketed £2,000 after encouraging Noah to pay him in exchange for staying away from Amelia Spencer and baby Esther.
When Samson and Amelia’s daughter was born last October, Samson surprised everyone with his stubborn refusal to have anything to do with her.
The most recent episodes saw Samson apparently have a sudden change of heart. He became interested in Esther’s education after learning that Amelia’s boyfriend Noah had been awarded a trust fund worth thousands of pounds.

Coming up with a cunning plan to make Noah feel insecure, Samson hinted at taking his place as he tried to get closer to Amelia and Esther.
Noah became so paranoid that he willingly gave up the two thousand when Samson revealed that he wanted money to stay away. He was disappointed when Samson later hinted that he wouldn’t just disappear so easily.
In Monday’s episode, Samson is in high spirits after enjoying a spending spree with Noah’s money.
Their joy couldn’t be more different from the mood of their family, who are struggling to make ends meet amid the ongoing cost of living crisis. Samson’s dad, Sam, also wishes he could do more to help support Esther.

During a tense meeting at the cafe, Noah reluctantly agrees to give Samson another £2,000 bribe.
Noah hopes this is enough to keep Samson away from Amelia and Esther, but isn’t this just wishful thinking?
