Wendy (played by Susan Cookson) is the mother of Victoria’s (Isobel Hodgins) rapist Lee Posner (Kris Mochrie) and therefore, has struggled to ground a relationship with her grandchild’s mother as she believes the Emmerdale chef is lying about her ordeal. After her decision to live in the village caused a stir with several characters, the conclusion of tonight’s edition of the ITV soap saw an unknown assailant throw a brick through her window. However, could Diane Sugden (Elizabeth Estensen) be behind the threat?
As a surrogate mother to Victoria, the soap stalwart has a maternal instinct to protect her loved one at any cost.
With the expectant mother’s brother Robert Sugden (Ryan Hawley) serving time behind bars for killing his sister’s rapist, Diane has stepped in to become a pillar of support for the pregnant character.
Tonight’s episode saw both women floored when Wendy announced she would be sticking around, even getting herself a job at the GP practice, leading the Woolpack chef to consider leaving the village once more.
However, towards the end of the hour-long episode, it seemed her mother figure had a plan up her sleeve to get revenge on the newcomer and drive her out.

Watching on as Wendy and her other son Luke Posner (Max Parker) unpacked a car full of the former’s belongings into her new house, Victoria voiced her concerns about never being rid of Lee’s family.
“She can’t just expect me to sit by and do nothing,” the expectant mother declared to which Diane assured her the newcomer wouldn’t be around for long.
“She’s not staying Victoria, I won’t have it,” the stalwart affirmed, as she eyed up her new nemesis in the village.
Just a few scenes later, the windows of the house were smashed, with a distraught Wendy running out onto the street to confront her stalker.

Although Diane may not be so quick on her feet to flee the area, she may have arranged the attack to take place.
