A storm of epic proportions is lashing Emmerdale, bringing
death and devastation. In tonight's hour-long special,
prepares to depart for Soap Heaven.
First, though, there are affairs of the heart to see to. Tricia
is determined to leave the village and her husband Marlon after
his fling with the grubby Charity.
But Marlon is desperate not to let her go and, in one final
romantic flurry, writes Tricia a letter detailing the 101 things
he loves about her. Can she count to 101?
Elsewhere, Robert and Katie seek sanctuary from the weather
in each other's arms.

As the storm takes hold, Louise stirs in the car wreckage and
tries to get the door open.
Realising that she is trapped and
unable to stir Ashley, Louise desperately screams for help.
Horrified Paddy wades into the water and tries
to keep her calm until the
police and ambulances arrive.
Later Emily and Laurel are sickened to overhear
a paramedic say that Ashley’s leg may need to be amputated. Laurel
sits by Ashley’s side trying to reassure him as he rapidly
loses blood. Firemen struggle to cut the victims from the tangled
wreckage but time is running out for Ashley.
Meanwhile, Jack and Andy desperately tend to the bulls on the
farm in the torrential rain and howling wind. With a nasty cut
on his hand, Robert heads inside accompanied by Katie. As she
examines the cut the pair end up in a passionate clinch.
As trees and telegraph poles fall and roof slates are ripped
from houses by the wind, lonely Tricia waits at the bus stop
in the abysmal weather to leave the village for good.
Tricia takes out the letter from Marlon listing 101 things he
loves about her
and realising that she is not ready to say goodbye,
she heads back to the Woolpack.
But tragedy follows as the
bus shelter is struck by lightening, followed by the pub
itself, which collapses on top of her.
Terrified Tricia is
the rubble and lies motionless, will anyone get to
her in time?
