Emmerdale fans confused by Samson ‘identity theft’ blunder amid crowbar attack

Emmerdale fans were left scratching their heads during Wednesday evening's episode when Samson informed two teenagers his step-mum's identity had been stolen.

Samson, played by Sam Hall, knew two thugs from his school had been threatening Lydia after she was wrongly accused of scamming locals out of their money.

He headed to school with a crowbar tucked inside his schoolbag and confronted the pair, defending his step-mum with a steely look on his face.

When the lads claimed Lydia (Karen Blick) was a scammer, Samson insisted she wasn't, instead arguing her identity had been stolen online.

"Robbing scum the lot of you," one of the teens spat.

"Lydia’s done no wrong, she had her identity stolen online," Samson replied, his face darkening.

Moments previously, a policeman arrived at the Dingle's house and informed Lydia she had been proven innocent, as the scam had been traced outside of the UK.

Watching the confrontation between Samson and the thugs play out, viewers wondered why Samson had used the phrase "had her identity stolen," as he wasn't present for the visit from the police.

Taking to Twitter, viewers felt a blunder was afoot, as Samson wouldn't have known for certain Lydia's identity had been nicked.

One said: "#emmerdale what am I missing how would he Samson know that if the Police only just told Lydia while he's at school?"

Another added: "How did Sampson know Lydia had her identity stolen she's only just found out herself, he's at School."

"They originally thought it was Paul, more likely to say it was him than use the phrase ‘she had her identity stolen'," remarked a third.

Seconds later, Samson chased the two schoolboys down the hallway with the crowbar in one hand, threatening to beat them.

Sam Dingle (James Hooton) was furious to receive a call from the school that afternoon, fearing Samson could face time behind bars for the attack.
