Emmerdale beats Eastenders in the TV ratings & Whos the Gunman in Emmerdale?

An hour long nail biting episode of Emmerdale beat the ever so powerful BBC One soap Eastenders in this past week. The episode saw an armed gunman hold Katie and Matthew hostage at home farm. For viewers who didnt see the episode, i wont spoil your viewing pleasure for this weekends omnibus.

What does this mean for Emmerdale? Is the Yorkshire soap getting more popular and growing in viewers popularity? Or is the ever so dull and depressing (In my personal opinion) Eastenders losing it's power? Or is it just that Emmerdale was an hour long special, with the writers leading the story into a climax just as Eastenders was starting?.......

Here's a cool clip from Emmerdale- If you dont want to k now anything about this weeks shoot out, dont watch it!
