At the hospital, a Doctor informs Vanessa's loved ones that they've found another internal bleed so Vanessa will need another operation.

They kiss and begin to undress but are interrupted when someone tries to open the locked classroom door. The pair quickly get themselves together then open the door for Jessie.
Maya tries to talk to Jacob as he walks to the bus stop but Jacob insists there's nothing to talk about - she needs to decide to who wants to be with. At the farm, Cain stares at a picture Kyle drew their family. He calls Moira and leaves her a voicemail begging her to come home.
Matty isn't impressed to find Cain asleep on the sofa surrounded by empty beer cans and a half-eaten takeaway. He wants Cain out of the house but Cain refuses to leave until Moira returns home. Charity tries to get to the bottom of why Debbie moved out of the farm but doesn't get very far. Faith, Charity, Chas and Vanessa are all worried about Cain but none of them want to go and see him so they draw straws.
Matty isn't happy that Moira has allowed Cain to stay at the farm. Bob has spent the night in the pub cellar. He accidentally knocks over a box of wine glasses which Charity, Vanessa, Chas and Paddy hear smash from the back room.

With a pregnancy test box in hand, Victoria calls Ellis and tells them they need to talk. When Victoria hears Marlon and Jessie coming downstairs, she quickly kicks the pregnancy test box under the sofa.
Brenda shouts at Laurel telling her if Bob had died, it would've been her fault. It soon dons on Brenda that Bob was planning to sleep in her car and she feels awful for asking for the car back.

Dawn's first day at the factory hasn't lasted long as a molasses spillage has resulted in all the workers being sent home.
Bernice questions if Dan is really going to allow to leave Amelia with Daz. After getting redressed, Robert checks the Home James Haulage account and realises it's been cleared out so he gets straight on the phone to Nicola. Amelia finds Kerry crying in the pavilion at the park. Kerry tells Amelia she's terrified of losing her. Amelia admits she wants to stay; she's only going because Daz has no one. Kerry reminds Amelia that's not her problem.
Dawn is suffering the effects of going cold turkey. Harriet informs Dawn that social services have been in touch and they want to meet with her tomorrow. She again tries to persuade Dawn not to go cold turkey but Dawn insists she knows what she's doing.
Dawn feels great in the morning, and feels fine with the withdrawal. She is still determined to go cold turkey, but is grateful for Harriet's help. Nicola is furious about being thrown out by Jimmy but Laurel tries to make her see that she did wrong. She also advises Nicola to begin grovelling.

Leyla gossips about Cain killing Joe which annoys Aaron and puts Debbie off ordering anything.
Leyla finds a barely conscious Maya and calls for an ambulance. Manpreet thanks Jai for not telling Rishi about her shopping addiction.

Chas hands Paddy a Valentine's card and informs him she's got the afternoon off but Paddy would rather go for a walk alone.
Ellis speeds towards Billy but swerves at the last second and crashes into the Pirate Ship, sending garden furniture flying. Jai wants to fill Nicola's old position but refuses to give Nicola her job back, instead tells Laurel that she'd be the ideal candidate. Laurel is unsure about taking Nicola's job but the prospect of more money and better hours is too tempting for the struggling single mother. Marlon returns to Tall Trees Cottage to find Jessie and April are out.
Nicola tries to make things up to Jimmy but he isn't ready to forgive and forget, reminding Nicola two families are being made homeless because of her.

Cain suggests she asks Matty to return. Jimmy is annoyed when Nicola blows. Dawn is sour towards Ryan and snaps.
A hungover Matty arrives at the farm hours late which earns him a telling off from Cain. Before Cain leaves, he warns Matty that the tractor is out of order although Matty believes Cain's only saying that as he doesn't think he's capable of changing the forks. Rishi goes through the factory accounts. An excited Vanessa tells Rhona that she and Charity are going to look at a wedding venue.
Pete attempts to stem the flow of blood from the wound in Rhona's abdomen as Matty calls for an ambulance. Debbie refuses to attend Chas' birthday party due to Cain. As Rhona is wheeled into an ambulance, Matty tells Pete he's sorry. Chas finds Paddy in the backroom and apologises for sending the DNA samples off. Paddy reveals Bear Wolf is his dad.
Pete gives Matty the cold shoulder when he asks how Rhona is doing. Jai knows Rishi loves Manpreet and wants to save her but he and Priya are determined to protect their father. Sarah pretends to be ill in hope of scuppering Debbie's job interview. As Debbie has already left the house, Sarah asks Lydia to call her and tell her to come home but instead Lydia calls Cain.

She refuses to back down and kicks Debbie out. Ellis angers Pete in the shop. Maya expresses her jealousy over seeing Jacob and Liv together. Kerry meets with the social worker and informs her that Cain has been arrested for murder twice.
It's Jacob's sixteenth birthday. Maya seductively tells the teen that her present isn't something you wrap up then instructs him to meet her at the Summerhouse in an hour. In the meantime, Jacob and Liv play with the drone Eric gifted him. Leyla notices something is off with Megan and tries to get to the bottom of what's wrong. Jacob tells Liv he needs to get ready for the party then sneaks off to meet Maya.
Liv can see there's something wrong with Jacob. She apologises for earlier then asks if she's ruined his birthday. Kerry is hurt that Eric received a card from Amy but she didn't.
It's the morning after Jacob's birthday party and Jacob has a hangover. Maya reminds Jacob he could've blown everything last night and orders him to be more careful. Jacob apologises and assures her it won't happen again. Maya orders Jacob to apologise to Liv too ash she's their cover so they need her onside. David and Leyla are annoyed to learn Maya gave Jacob a beer last night.
An excited David asks Jacob to cover the shop and confirm the meat order whilst he gets ready for his his romantic night with Maya.

DAs Maya drops Jacob off on the edge of the village, Jacob is forced to duck behind the car to avoid being see by Leyla and Megan. Aaron receives a text message which he tells Robert was about scrap metal. When Robert leaves, Liv asks Aaron who the text was really from. Aaron maintains it was about scrap so Liv grabs the phone and reads the message from Jeremy about introducing Aaron to someone.
After Robert heads off to a meeting, Aaron takes the cash from the jiffy envelope. Kerry informs Eric that she's tracked down Amy to Belfast. Jacob tells Maya they need to find somewhere where they can be alone properly as Farrers Barn is too risky. In hushed tones, Dawn asks Kerry if she's thought anymore about Amy.
Marlon, Jessie, Paddy and Kerry finally arrive at the hotel in Belfast after a long night of travel. The journey has worn the four of them out and they all snap at each other. Back in the village, Dan can't get hold of Kerry so decides to take Amelia to Croydon to see Daz. Paddy tries to check him and Kerry in but there's no record of his booking on the system.
As stunned Amy questions what Kerry is doing here, the man she was arguing with puts his hands on her. Kerry leaps to Amy's defence but Amy doesn't need her mother's backing and knees the man in his groin. Kerry concludes Amy is a prostitute and the man was a punter although Amy states she actually works at a woman's shelter. Bear Wolf can't believe Paddy is his son as he didn't think he could have children after an incident with a circular saw.

She's adamant they need to stop Amy from getting anywhere near Kyle so she decides to pay her a visit.
Charity prepares to face the village but struggles to act normal. Chas worries to Laurel about telling Paddy about being pregnant.

Megan is excited ahead of her trip to the Lakes with Graham and Eliza. Meanwhile at Home Farm, Graham receives a call from Kim demanding he collects her from prison. David attempts to prove to Jacob that he and Amba are his priority but a moody Jacob doesn't want to spend time with him Maya follows Jacob outside to try to find out what's wrong.
Graham suggests he and Megan talk somewhere else but Megan doesn't believe there's anything to say. She tells Graham and Kim that scum like them deserve each other then storms out. Unable to handle Maya's declaration, Jacob walks away. Maya desperately tries to stop Jacob but her demeanour quickly changes when Liv appears at Farrers Barn. Cain lets himself into Dale Head and demands Kerry tells him where Amy and Kyle are.
Kim is still annoyed with Graham for keeping the truth about Joe's death from her and refuses to draw a line under things until the police investigation is finished. Graham assures Kim that all the evidence has been covered up but Kim doesn't know if she can believe that. Cain has a word with Charity about letting Amy see Kyle yesterday although Charity doesn't see what she's done wrong by letting Amy see Kyle and compares it to her own situation with Ryan.
Kim meets with an associate named Marcus and instructs him to find out who's making withdrawals from an offshore business account. Nicola resolves to get herself onto the council planning committee to make herself indispensable to Kim. Amy is upset that Kerry is getting to see Kyle but she isn't.
Graham tells Kim that she won't find Joe. Kim tells him that she never wants to see Joe, but is more than happy to deal with him herself.

Belle tells Vanessa that she wants to volunteer at an Orangutan sanctuary in Borneo. Vanessa tries to talk her out of it, especially when Belle thinks that she may not even return. Kim vents to Graham about Cain, and isn't impressed when Noah turns up to play pool with him.
DC Meaden quizzes Cain about why he was found shovelling earth from what appeared to be a grave. Cain states he got a text from Noah saying he was in trouble so he went to find him and that's when he found the hole in the ground with the phone in it. Cain's solicitor, Mr Drake, reminds DC Meaden that there's no evidence a crime has been committed and suggests an apology is in order.
Billy reiterates that nothing happened between him and Leyla but Tracy doesn't believe it. She begs Leyla to tell her the truth but instead Leyla tells her she's got a screw loose. Tracy goes for Leyla and Billy is forced to break it up. Jacob wants to intervene but Maya talks him out of it. Back at Tug Ghyll, Leyla and Billy continue to protest their innocence.

April asks Ellis if he ever gets treated differently because he's mixed race, commenting it's really wrong what happened to Billy yesterday. Charity believes the deal with Robert will be the gift that keeps on giving although Vanessa isn't happy that Charity will be flirting with a dodgy bloke in the name of business.
DS Sanders and DC Meaden pitch up at Wishing Well Cottage as Cain is fixing the Dingle van and ask after Debbie. DS Sanders proposes Debbie knows what happened to Joe so she can no longer stand to be around Cain. Vanessa is still hurt that Charity let Mike think she's single.
Robert, Charity and Aaron cannot believe Vanessa abandoned Mike's car in a field. Charity assures Vanessa she won't go down for this as long as she wiped away her fingerprints but Vanessa didn't. As Graham and Kim are talking, Graham hears noises on the other side of the door so he goes to investigate and finds Noah. Kim isn't happy to see Noah so orders him to go away.

Faith approaches Cain and tries to talk to him but Cain gets in his car and follows Graham. At Dale Head, Dan and Kerry argue about Amelia seeing Daz which results in Dan walking out.
Graham wonders what Kim could possibly gain from telling Cain that Joe's alive. Kim admits she's blackmailing Cain - she made him an indecent offer. Graham is disgusted. As Cain gets Kyle ready for school, he explains to him that Amy will be picking him up as she has something very important to tell him.
Faith isn't happy with Amy's presence at Pollard's Barn and informs her she can only stay for two nights. It's Dan's birthday, but there's no let up in the strained atmosphere between him and Kerry. Maya and Jacob call in sick so they can make the most of their last day alone together before David returns home.

Chas and Paddy are nervous yet excited ahead of their ultrasound. Aaron texts to say he's thinking about them whilst Debbie and Faith pop into the backroom to wish them luck. Kerry hates pretending to Amelia that she and Dan are still together which isn't helped when Amelia reveals she had a dream about the wedding. Amelia notices Kerry isn't wearing her engagement ring although Kerry lies she took it off whilst showering.
Charity worries when Noah mentions that Debbie has gone off to Home Farm. At the farm, Moira reassures Cain that Debbie will come around in time.

Faith is furious that Bear destroyed Grace's memorial although Paddy is more concerned about Bear's injured shoulder.
Gabby notices Laurel is hiding her phone so jokingly inquires if she's got a secret admirer. At the factory, Jai takes a call from an irate client whose order has been messed up. After hanging up, Jai informs Aiesha that she was the one working on that order and the whole thing was completely mixed up. Aiesha protests she checked it and it was fine.

Pete is anxious ahead of Rhona's return to work although Rhona is raring to get back. Harriet feels like a fool for getting caught off guard and being mugged. As Dawn didn't come home last night, Pearl suspects she was responsible for the mugging although Harriet tells Pearl she's wrong.
Bear tries to make himself useful at the pub but ends up doing more harm than good so Chas offloads him onto Aaron for the day. Pete presents Rhona with her birthday present - unicorn slippers and a dressing gown. Rhona is far from thrilled as last year he bought her sexy underwear. At Woodbine Cottage, an on-edge Harriet is startled by the clanging of the letterbox so arms herself with a candle stick holder which alarms Dawn.

Maya tries to talk to David but he's busy helping out at the B&B which is heaving with bird watchers as a Siberian Dusky Thrush has been spotted nearby.

Maya tells Liv it's not what she thinks and tries to twist things but Liv doesn't fall for her lies, revealing Jacob has already admitted it.

Liv sends Jacob the recording of their conversation yesterday. In the shop, David picks up Jacob's phone and informs him Liv has text. Jacob begins playing the recording just as Maya appears. Robert suggests to Aaron that they contact potential surrogate Natalie and invite her over so they can get to know her better. As Harriet and Amelia are working in the church, Amelia answers the church phone.
Jacob and Maya worry what they're going to do about Liv. Still oblivious to what's going on right under his nose, David suggests Jacob could visit Alicia in Portugal whilst the dust settles but Jacob insists he can't go anywhere right now. Jacob texts Liv telling her they need to meet. Robert sees the text and advises Liv to ignore him. As Robert is about to head to Liverpool to collect Seb, a frantic Aaron returns home and reveals Natalie is coming over tonight. When Harriet enters the café, Dawn leaves.
Locked in the church, a terror-stricken Harriet questions who else is inside. A light going out further terrifies an already petrified Harriet so she bangs on the church door begging to be let out. Liv explains to Gabby that she wanted to get her own back on Jacob and hurt him like he hurt her. Gabby tells Liv she's better off without Jacob, reminding her she's the innocent one in all of this.
Harriet has spent the night sitting in an armchair clutching a cricket bat. She's alarmed when she hears a noise but it's only Dawn who was passing and noticed the front door open.

In the café, Sam invites Harriet and Dawn along to the beer garden opening but an on-edge Harriet isn't in the mood. Anaesthetist Dr Gibson performs Matty's final checks.
Moira is convinced something has gone wrong with Matty's surgery. A nurse agrees to find out what's happening whilst Victoria tries to reassure Moira that everything will be okay. An upset Aiesha insists all she's done wrong is be friendly although Priya states it feels like she's taking over. Aiesha grabs her belongings and walks out the pub in tears. Paddy makes his speech then Chas officially declares the new beer garden open.
Kerry texts Joel asking to meet for lunch then tells Dan they need to come clean to Amelia tonight. Bear has packed his bags. Jessie is impressed to learn the rates Ellis is charging for his personal training sessions which only makes Billy feel worse as he's fed up of his dead-end job driving for the Sharmas.
At Pollard's Barn, Faith and Eric are alarmed by a strange noise. They creep downstairs where they find Kerry sleeping on the sofa snoring loudly. After some persuasion from Amy, Eric agrees to let their unwanted house guest stay a while longer much to Faith's annoyance.

Dawn protests she needed the money for Lucas although a disgusted Harriet tells Dawn that Lucas needs a mum who respects herself.
Bernice is unnerved when Liam insists on making her breakfast. She's further alarmed when she spots rat poison, a scalpel and a container of bleach all in the kitchen so she rushes out. Dawn has visitation with Lucas at Woodbine Cottage today but Harriet cannot find her. Bernice has concluded Liam is a murderer who tried to poison her.
Nicola promises Bernice that they'll find a way to reunite her and Liam. Afterward, Nicola phones Liam and invites him to the café on the pretence of discussing the children's ward closure. Andrea urges Priya to tell her family about her eating disorder. Pete turns up late for work as he was dropping Leo off at holiday club. Moira comments Pete cares more about Leo than some dads do about their own children which Cain takes as a dig towards him and results in the pair arguing in front of Pete and a gleeful Nate.
Nate looks forward to spending the day alone with Moira on the farm whilst Pete is at the cattle auction. Cain tries to persuade Moira to take the day off so they can spend time with Kyle and Isaac but Moira is too busy with work. Amy fills Eric in on her plans to pursue a residence order for Kyle as Nate reckons Cain and Moira might split up soon. At the factory, Jai and Laurel prepare to tell Rishi about their relationship but Laurel sees how stressed Rishi is so decides to hold off for now.
Moira pushes Nate off her insisting she can't do this but Nate pulls her back in for another kiss. Moments later, they hear Cain outside the barn so Moira pushes Nate off her again and Nate scrambles to put his top back before Cain sees them. Jai cannot believe Rishi hasn't paid any of the factory's suppliers and questions how his father let it get to this. Rishi admits he and Manpreet thought they could fix things before it got so bad, but they didn't have the money as he spent all of his saving paying off Manpreet's loans.
Andrea asks Jamie if he's having second thoughts about ripping off Kim. Jamie isn't. Laurel nervously prepares to tell Gabby and Arthur about her relationship with Jai. When Kerry nips into the shop, she witnesses Jai and Laurel kissing. Jamie continues the plan to oust Kim from the vets by telling his mother that Rhona is bullying him. Cain worries about losing Kyle although Moira promises Cain promises they'll win this.

Bear gives the five-aside team a team talk ahead of their game with The Maltshovel but he struggles to read the tactical notes so Matty takes over. Rodney appears in the pub and asks Matty and Ryan how they go on with the dining chair he gave them a few days ago. Matty states they've sold it.
Jamie explains to Kim that he wanted to teach her a lesson. Kim doesn't see what she's done wrong so Jamie reminds her that she lured him to Emmerdale on false pretences and has treated his wife and daughter like second class citizens. Jamie tells Kim that he didn't need her to buy him a career and quips he wishes Paddy and Vanessa turned down her offer to buy into the surgery. As Jamie goes to walk out, Kim declares Paddy and Vanessa's careers won't be worth much after today - she's won like she always does. Meanwhile in the village, Rhona locks the surgery door to prevent Graham from planting the ketamine.
Ryan informs Rodney that he's managed to sell the chair he gave him a few days ago. Diane decides to tell Bernice about the move to Cornwall today before she finds out from someone else like Matty did. At Home Farm, Graham tells Kim that he thinks she did the right thing by calling him off yesterday and questions what happens next. Kim states she's going to stop the games and manipulation as it's only going to drive Jamie, Andrea and Millie away and she's also giving Jamie her share in the vets.
In the café, Lydia shows Bernice all the costumes she's prepared for the murder mystery event tomorrow. Victoria informs Aaron and Robert that she and Diane are leaving on Friday.

Bernice worries she's lost Liam for good although Nicola doesn't believe he'll be able to resist Bernice after seeing how much effort she's gone to in throwing the murder mystery event.
Emmerdale has been transformed into "Emmerdeadsville" for Bernice's Wild West murder mystery event. Victoria has been up all night thinking about Lee's demands. Diane believes Victoria should apologise to Lee as it'll get him off their backs but Victoria refuses as she's determined that everyone should know what a monster Lee is. Victoria realises that even if they get Lee off their backs, she'll still have to deal with Wendy so Diane suggests they ask Robert to help them. Nicola is shocked to learn Bernice is planning to propose to Liam today and reminds Bernice that she and Liam aren't together but Bernice refuses to be talked out of it.
Lee demands more money, stating most of the £10,000 will be swallowed up by his flight to Australia. Victoria insists that's not her and Robert's problem although Lee reminds Victoria that he is her problem so she's going to need to pay a lot more to make him go away. Following Bernice's screams, the villagers race to the village hall where Bob explains how Bernice kissed him. When Liam comments he dodged a bullet, Bernice walks off defeated.
Robert has spent all night in police custody leaving Victoria to fear the worst. Kerry bumps into Amy in Main Street and apologises for leading Karen to her yesterday.

Kerry and Amy return to the pub where Kerry suggests they treat this as a new beginning, as with any luck, this will have blown over in a few days. Meanwhile at the factory, Tracy tries to open the stockroom door but its stuck. She begins to panic when she spots smoke pouring under door and screams for help but there's no one around to hear her cries. In the beer garden, Vanessa advises Frank to think about what he wants and make it happen.
It's the morning after the factory fire and Amy is wracked with guilt as she watches the firefighters finish extinguishing the remnants of the blaze. A devastated Tracy struggles to come to terms with yesterday's events and decides against accompanying Vanessa and Charity to identify Frank. In the café, villagers mourn Frank and begin to speculate why Tracy was at the factory. Victoria has filled Diane in on the truth about Robert and Lee's fight and she's also called off the move to Cornwall. At Holdgate Farm, Megan breaks the news of Frank's death to Eliza with Leyla and Manpreet's support.
Charity tries to persuade Vanessa to listen as Tracy attempts to apologise but she is uninterested. Nate is disappointed when he returns to learn Moira has gone to Nana Barton's for a while. Amy is nervous as the police continue their questioning of the villagers and speculation grows as to what or who caused the fire. David and Megan try to comfort Tracy as she explains how she was waiting in the stockroom for Billy. The Insurance Representative discovers the failsafe had been turned off on the fire alarm.
Tracy is aghast that the police want to speak to Megan regarding Frank's reasons for being at the factory and insists Megan must put them straight that he wasn't responsible for the fire. Vanessa continues to nurse her suspicions of his reasons for being there. Rishi shows Jai the exact terms of Kim's contract. Sarah confronts Debbie over her secret phone calls to Belle about Scotland. She tells Debbie that she should go and take Jack with her, leaving her free to come visit her at weekends. Robert suggests making contact with Natalie to Aaron rather than putting their lives on hold.
Kerry claims she can't remember how she came to know Tracy was inside the factory. Suspecting she knows more than she's letting on, DI Goldberg cautions her.

Zak and Faith wait for Bear to leave. When he finally does, Zak tells Faith he wants to come clean about their kiss to the family. She thinks it's a bad idea.

Harriet calls by the farm and tries to persuade Cain to give Will his job back but he refuses. In the salon, a frustrated Diane asks Bernice why she's behaving like this.

Vanessa, Tracy, Megan and Kerry continue preparations for Frank's funeral. Laurel warns Jai that he needs to tells Nicola about Kim's investment as she's going to find out sooner or later.

Jessie doesn't believe she'll be reinstated as headteacher of Hotten Academy so she looks few a new job. At the church, preparations for Frank's funeral continue.

Nate is glad to see Moira in his caravan. Moira tells Nate this doesn't mean he has a hold on her then she steps towards him and they kiss. The doctor explains to Liv, Aaron and Robert that there could be any number of triggers for Liv's seizure or it could be an isolated indecent. He advises Liv to be aware of any unusual feelings and suggests she keeps a diary. As Moira and Nate lie in bed, Nate realises Moira feels guilty for sleeping with him so he tells her this doesn't make her a bad person.
Cain prepares for his trip to Scotland. In the village, Kerry approaches Amy and asks her if she's thought about what she said yesterday. Amy has, but she doesn't think running away is a good idea.
