Kerry Wyatt (Laura Norton) might be out of the woods in terms of her injury in Emmerdale, but her freedom could be at stake courtesy of Vanessa Woodfield (Michelle Hardwick), who threatened to reveal the truth about her involvement in the fire.
Vanessa and Tracy were left devastated when Frank (Michael Praed) was killed in the factory fire. Tracy spent months searching for answers — refusing to believe that her beloved dad was the one responsible for the factory blaze — and the truth finally came to light last week, when she discovered that Kerry was the one who started the inferno — a fact which ultimately makes her responsible for Franks death.
After a confrontation between the pair, Kerry was left seriously injured and taken away to the hospital. With Tracy riddled with guilt over her actions, she has been unable to inform the police about what Kerry did to her dad, and — tonight — she made yet another attempt to do so, but was unable to turn Kerry in, as it would leave Amelia without a parent.
With Kerry finally having come round, Vanessa wasted little time in marching round to hospital to have it out with her dads killer. The pair argued — and Vanessa grew increasingly angry — and when a nurse tried to get her to calm down, she accidentally knocked the nurse into the wall, resulting in her getting arrested.
Later, at the police station, an irate Vanessa attempted to explain her actions, and — as she was put into a cell — she shouted at the top of her lungs about how she has a very good reason to be so angry. Its pretty clear that shes threatening to reveal the truth Read More – Source
‘Antebellum’ has a ‘Get Out’ vibe, but doesn’t live up to its twist

“Antebellum” is built around a provocative twist, and it’s a good one — as well as one that definitely shouldn’t be spoiled even a little. Once that revelation is absorbed, however, the movie becomes less distinctive and inspired, reflecting an attempt to tap into the zeitgeist that made “Get Out” a breakthrough, without the same ability to pay off the premise.
Originally destined for a theatrical run, the movie hits digital platforms trumpeting a “Get Out” pedigree in its marketing campaign, since there’s an overlap among the producing teams.
More directly, the film marks the directing debut of Gerard Bush + Christopher Renz, who have championed social-justice issues through their advertising work. The opening script features a quote from author William Faulkner, whose intent will eventually become clearer: “The past is never dead. It’s not even past.”
If that sounds like a timely means of drawing a line from the horrors of slavery to the racism of today, you’ve come to the right place.
The story begins on a plantation, where the brutal overseers carry out grisly punishments against those tilling the fields. A few have just tried to escape, led by Veronica (Janelle Monae), and they pay a heavy price for their resistance, which does nothing to curb her defiance.
Also written by Bush + Renz, the script take too long before revealing what makes “Antebellum” different, but the middle portion — a “The Twilight Zone”-like phase when it’s hard to be sure exactly what’s going on — is actually the film’s strongest. (Even the trailer arguably gives away too much, so the less one knows, the better.)
The final stretch, by contrast, veers into more familiar thriller territory, and feels especially rushed toward the end, leaving behind a host of nagging, unanswered questions. That provides food for thought, but it’s also what separates the movie from something like “Get Out,” which deftly fleshed out its horror underpinnings.
Although the filmmakers (in a taped message) expressed disappointment that the movie wasn’t making its debut in theaters, in a strange way, the on-demand format somewhat works in its favor. In the press notes, Bush says the goal was “to force the audience to look at the real-life horror of racism through the lens of film horror. We’re landing in the middle of the very conversations that we hoped ‘Antebellum’ would spur.”
“Antebellum” should add to that discussion, so mission accomplished on that level. Monae is also quite good in her first leading film role (she did previously star in the series “Homecoming’s” second season), but otherwise, most of the characters remain underdeveloped.
