Ryan’s mother Irene dies in next week’s Emmerdale episodes, and Charity gets on everyone’s bad side when she fails to be there for him.
In other news, Liv’s case is given new hope, and Dawn and Billy set a wedding date, oblivious to Meena’s plans for vengeance.
Here are the 13 key moments to keep an eye on.
Ryan receives terrible news
Ryan’s phone rings repeatedly, and when he answers, he learns that his mother, Irene, has passed away. His first thought is to call Charity, but she is too preoccupied with her playdate with Vanessa and the boys to pick up the phone.
Ryan eventually tells Mackenzie about his bad news, and she tries to contact Charity as well, knowing that she needs to be by Ryan’s side. Charity, on the other hand, ignores the calls in favor of spending time with Vanessa.
Mackenzie reveals his sensitive side by offering to help Ryan and drive him to his brother’s house.
Charity’s behaviour hurts Ryan and Mack
Mack tries to persuade Ryan to tell Charity about Irene’s death the next day, but it is Mack who finally does, and Charity is furious that no one told her sooner.
Charity is hurt when she realizes how much she has harmed Ryan and Mack, and she even irritates Vanessa by displaying a self-centered attitude.
Mackenzie crosses the line with Dawn
Hurt, Mack drowns his sorrows in alcohol and strikes up a conversation with Dawn, who is dealing with her own issues with Billy.
Meanwhile, Vanessa takes the unexpected step of encouraging Charity to help Mack. Mack notices Charity and Vanessa together before Charity can make amends with him.
Mack, enraged and envious, lunges at Dawn for a kiss.
Vanessa tries to smooth things over with Charity and Mack
Billy is irritated when he hears Mack tried to kiss Dawn the day after the drunken pass attempt. Meanwhile, Mack and Charity have ended their relationship.
Vanessa, on the other hand, plays an unlikely matchmaker when she tells Mack that Charity was actually on her way to apologize.
Will Charity and Mack reunite as a result of Vanessa’s unexpected efforts?
Vinny is broken by bad news about Liv
Liv’s release date is approaching, and Vinny is counting on Manpreet to provide the police with the evidence they require. Manpreet, however, is traumatized and her memories are hazy, so she can’t recall the specific details Meena shared about Ben’s death.
It’s bad news when DS Rogers gives Vinny an update. Liv cannot be released due to a lack of concrete evidence.
Vinny is devastated, and he makes a desperate plea to Manpreet, pleading with her to lie to the cops.
Liv’s case receives fresh hope
Liv calls Vinny from prison the next day to inform him that new evidence has surfaced and a court hearing has been requested.
She asks Vinny to contact Aaron to inform him of the good news, and Vinny agrees.
The Dingles are worried when Aaron refuses to return
The celebrations at Wishing Well are in full swing with the prospect of Liv’s release, but the mood shifts when Chas reveals Aaron isn’t coming home.
Vinny is concerned that Aaron’s refusal to return will rekindle Liv’s drinking, and he is unsure of what to do.
On the day of the hearing, Liv prepares to return home, and Vinny, feeling bad but unable to break her heart, lies to her that Aaron is on his way to see her.
Liam and Jacob are thrown by a police update
After the recent Meena revelations, the dust begins to settle, and Liam watches as the police pack up the investigation van. Liv’s hearing is discussed by Leyla and Jacob, and neither of them can believe what has happened.
The police approach Liam and Jacob outside the village hall, and DS Rogers informs them that they’ve received information suggesting Meena may have fled the country. The news has shocked them.
Leyla tries to support Jacob
Jacob rages at Vinny before storming off, needing someone to lash out at.
Leyla is helpless when she discovers Jacob at Leanna’s graveside. She tries to imagine what David would do to communicate with him and comes up with a solution to help him cope with his grief. Will her strategy work?
The pub goes up for auction
When a “For Auction” sign appears in The Woolpack’s window, Chas and Paddy realize the harsh reality of their future.
It feels like the end of an era for them as they mourn the loss of their home and livelihood. The end of The Woolie as they know it, however, hasn’t put an end to Cain and Al’s war; the men make it clear that it’s far from over.
Manpreet struggles with her recovery
Manpreet is still struggling after her ordeal at Meena’s hands, suffering from constant anxiety and physical frailty, unsure if she will ever feel like herself again.
She begins to think she’d be better off leaving the village for a fresh start, but Charles, who is heartbroken, insists she stay. Is he able to persuade her?
Ellis and Belle try to keep their relationship quiet
Despite Cain and Al’s ongoing feud, Ellis and Belle are desperate to spend private time together to avoid the family drama. However, alone time is becoming increasingly difficult to come by.
When their plans to meet at the B&B are thwarted, Belle begins to doubt that they will ever be able to find time together, until she devises a cunning plan later.
Dawn and Billy fix a wedding date – and Meena knows!
After their recent squabble, in which the subject of Malone’s murder resurfaced, Billy is eager to reconcile with Dawn and make it clear that he doesn’t think she’s anything like Meena.
Billy declares his love for Dawn and informs her that he wishes to marry her as soon as possible. They set a date.
They post the announcement on her social media in a blissful glow about their future, completely unaware that Meena is enraged by the wedding news and plotting the ultimate vengeance…
