The lives of several families in the Yorkshire Dales revolve around a farm and the nearby village. With murders, affairs, lies, deceit, laughter and tears, it's all there in the village.
Ryan and Maisie had some time alone at Home Farm and came dangerously close to taking things further. What they didn't know was that during a few stolen moments in the office, Nathan walked in and saw them. What action will Nathan take? Elsewhere, Natasha shocked Faye by offering up a truce.
Nathan revealed that he'd seen Ryan and Maisie and told his friend he couldn't carry on two-timing Katie. If Ryan didn't end it with one of them, Nathan would tell Katie everything. Meanwhile, Cain teased Aaron when a male customer gave him the come-on at the garage. And Ashley was flabbergasted when Nicola accused him of having an affair with Sally.
Ryan sat down and told a devastated Katie he was calling off their relationship. Poor Katie couldn't believe her ears and demanded to know if he had feelings for someone else. What did he say? Meanwhile, Holly propositioned Aaron at the pub, but he couldn't take his eyes off Adam.
When Aaron spent the night with Holly, Adam knew he had to tell her what he knew. He blurted out that Aaron had tried to kiss him on the night of the crash. But did Holly believe him? Meanwhile, Maisie felt terrible about Katie and told Ryan he should tell her the truth. And at Mulberry, Diane made it clear to Ashley that he had to get rid of Sally if he stood any chance of saving his marriage.
Ashley was finally going to tell Sally that she had to leave the village and sat her down to have the conversation. But in her deranged little head, Sally was convinced Ashley was about to declare his love and moved in for a kiss... Meanwhile, Katie shunned Ryan at the pub and Adam told John about Aaron.
Ashley couldn't believe it when Sally revealed she was in love with him and believed his feelings were mutual. She even dared to tell him that he had chosen Laurel over her. How did he react to that? Over at Home Farm, Natasha knew that Mark had lied about playing golf. And the Bartons wondered how Aaron could possibly be gay.
Aaron knew Adam had fuelled the gossip about his sexuality and confronted him. But Adam gave him a choice - finish it with Holly or have the whole village find out he was gay. Elsewhere, Faye and Mark knew Natasha was onto them, while Ryan and Maisie planned some quality time together. Things were getting more complicated for Mark by the minute... How would it all end?
Natasha was convinced that Mark was lying to her and sure enough, she quickly found out that he wasn't where he claimed to be. But did she find out what he was really up to? Meanwhile, Aaron deliberately got caught being intimate with Holly so that Paddy would believe he was straight. And Nikhil realised he had met his match in Charity.
Unaware that Ryan and Maisie were upstairs, Mark and Faye returned to Tenant's Cottage having decided to end their affair. But as they kissed each other goodbye, Natasha walked in... Elsewhere, Adam and Aaron called a truce and Charity tried to convince the Sharmas she could double their profits.
Mark's world came crashing down around him as his terrible secrets came spilling out. Ryan heard how his mother had lied to him all his life about his real father, and Maisie felt sick as she realised she had fallen for her half-brother. And what about Natasha and Faye?
Maisie and Ryan struggled to take in what they were hearing about Mark. The young pair were sick at the idea that they had nearly consummated their romantic relationship when all the while they were half brother and sister. Mark didn't know where to turn and it wasn't long before Nathan showed up and demanded to know what was going on. Everyone despised Mark - and by the end of the day one of them would have killed him.
Natasha tried to convince her children that she'd kept Mark's awful secret to protect them. But all they knew was that Mark had torn their family apart. Faye was beside herself when Ryan went walkabout and she couldn't find him anywhere. Later when Mark was alone at Home Farm, he wrote Natasha a letter and headed off into the woods - with his shotgun. But he wasn't the one who pulled the trigger. Who shot Mark?
Faye was relieved when Ryan finally came home although he didn't have anything to say. At Home Farm, Natasha had to convince Will that his missing father had not abandoned him. And finally, Ashley asked Sally to leave the village, but she told him she wasn't going anywhere.
Maisie went back to work and tried to make people believe she was fine. But when Faye walked into the bar, Maisie lost it and she was heartbroken when she found out Katie was offering Ryan a roof over his head. Would she ever get over the romantic feelings she had for her brother? Meanwhile, Charity was fired from the factory.
Ashley and Gabby were on their way to see Laurel when Sally suddenly appeared in the road. It was too late for Ashley to swerve so he hit her and she she landed unconscious, on the ground. How badly was she hurt? Elsewhere, Nicola had a fit when she found Jimmy enjoying a drink in the pub instead of helping with the christening arrangements.
Ashley had a hunch that Sally had deliberately stepped in front of his car but she wouldn't admit it. When he refused to stay with her, she behaved like an animal and later told Edna that she and Ashley had been having a relationship. Did Edna believe these terrible lies? Elsewhere, Jimmy and Carl went on an overnight job the day before Angelica's christening. Would they make it back in time?
It was the day of the christening and Nicola was running around like a headless chicken. Jimmy and Carl hadn't returned from their business trip as they had problems of their own. But things were about to get a lot worse... Elsewhere, Debbie had bad news for Nikhil about the car he'd just bought for Priya.
Against all odds, the christening went ahead and Nicola forgave Jimmy for arriving late and looking like a chimney sweep. Meanwhile, Ashley went to see Sally and told her to get her sick, deluded ideas out of her head. He could finally see how mad she really was. But was it too late?
Carl was stunned when his ex-wife Colleen turned up with their kids and asked him to take care of them for a while. Chas was furious when he accepted without consulting her. But after all, he was their father. How would parenthood affect Chas and Carl's relationship? Elsewhere, a senior member of the diocese paid Ashley a visit to take down some details regarding the Sally saga.
Charity enjoyed making Carl squirm as he was forced to ask her to do a driving job for him. Predictably Cain wasn't too happy about the arrangement but she told him he could like it or lump it. Elsewhere, Ashley broke down in front of Edna and she finally believed he was telling the truth about Sally.
Edna confronted Sally over her 'feelings' for Ashley and asked her to leave. Sally's response was to smirk and tell Edna that she didn't take kindly to people turning against her. Should Edna worry? Elsewhere, Debbie enjoyed a drink with Nikhil while Charity and Cain toasted her new job. All was going well with the Dingles - for now...
Ashley is alarmed when Terry reveals Sally is staying at the B&B. Later on, Edna realises it was Sally who hurled the brick through her window all those weeks ago. Together, Ashley and Edna warn Sally that her game is up – but she’s got another vicious move up her sleeve… Meanwhile, Natasha is heartbroken when Will continues to question Mark’s whereabouts. And Nicola forces Jimmy to set a date for the wedding.
Natasha and Maisie are struggling to cope when the police arrive to question them. Meanwhile, the Bishop comes to see Sally’s handiwork and apologises to Ashley for underestimating the situation. And finally, Aaron drops a wrench on Cain’s foot, causing rather a lot of damage…
The investigation into Mark’s disappearance begins. Will they uncover the truth about what happened? Meanwhile, unable to cope with her feelings for Ryan, Maisie asks him for a private word. Will Ryan comfort his sister or snub her? Elsewhere, Kayleigh teases Victoria about getting a lift from Moira and tells her to send Hannah another text. Will Victoria give in to her vicious friend?
Victoria feels guilty when she’s on the bus with Hannah, who receives yet another nasty text message. Hannah bursts into tears and Victoria looks at the long list of abuse on her mobile phone. Will this be enough to make Victoria stop the bullying? Elsewhere, Leyla has to calm a hysterical Maisie after she talks to Faye about Ryan. And Olena feels uncomfortable at Sam’s obvious feelings for her, as she is interested in someone else.
The Bartons are having dinner at Diane's when Hannah receives another text message. Victoria finally admits that she knows all about the nasty messages, but soon wishes she hadn't... Meanwhile, Maisie keeps up a front and appreciates some kindness from Andy at work. Elsewhere, Carl is reluctant to spend time with his children.
Maisie is close to the edge as she hears Ryan is staying with Katie again. Downing several drinks, Maisie has another episode in the Woolpack. But will she tell Katie the truth about Ryan? Meanwhile, Zak tries to take the pressure off Lisa. Olena is troubled by Sam's attraction to her and Victoria is punished by her peers at school.
Lisa is thrilled when Zak whisks her away for a romantic break, leaving Shadrach in the house unattended. Shadrach decides to enjoy a rare pleasure - a bath. But he falls asleep with the water running... Will Lisa and Zak have a home to come back to? Up at Home Farm, the police tell Natasha they've found a body. And finally, Diane tries to break the ice with Moira.
The police ask Natasha to identify the body while Ryan breaks the news to Faye. Faye rushes to the station and takes Natasha's hand before they both go in. But is it Mark? Elsewhere. Marlon helps mend relations between Diane and Moira. And Shadrach does a runner after his soggy mishap at Wishing Well.
Aaron is shocked when Holly tells him they are through. Debbie's news devastates Andy.
