Subtitled, Widescreen, Audio-described

The village is a hive of activity as the media descend on the Dingles to report on the verdict of the trial. All the locals gather to discuss the outcome and whether the jury has made the correct decision.

At Home Farm, subdued Zoe spends time with Jean on her first birthday and contemplates the events of the past couple of months.

From YTV EMMERDALE Friday 23 January 2004 at 7.00pm on ITV1 Network Daz (LUKE TITENSER) (left) is determined to get back on the straight and narrow after his court appearance. Also pictured Andy (KELVIN FLETCHER).

Keen to make amends Daz asks Robert if he will put a good word in for him with Scott, hoping he will give him a job. After much persuasion Scott agrees to discuss the possibility of Daz doing community service with him at the garage.

Elsewhere in the village, Pollard fears for his estranged wife. Having been missing for weeks, he slowly resigns himself to the prospect of never seeing her again. Distraught as he feels he hasn’t had an opportunity to say goodbye to his wife, Pollard is convinced Gloria is dead. He leaves a heartfelt message on her mobile, telling her he loves her and saying good bye.

Zoe isn't happy when Ashley comes by
Everyone expects Zoe to be happy, but she isn't. Although the trial went her way, and it's Jean's birthday, she still doesn't have Chris back. An awkward visit from Terry doesn't help. Zoe has to tell him that he's not fit to have his job back, and probably won't be for six months. Terry takes it badly, and claims that Chris would have stood by him. It's all too much and Zoe starts to pack things away to redecorate, or maybe move on.
Ethan wants Daz to do his community service at Scott's garage, and Robert tells Katie he'll back it 'for fringe benefits'. Scott is typically unhelpful, but when he is offered a place on Daz's assessment panel, he agrees. Daz, meanwhile, is as apathetic as ever. Edna persuades Pollard to take some flowers to the suicide spot in Hull, but he feels no better. Steph later reminds him it was Gloria who had the affair, not him. Eric finally leaves a tearful message on Gloria's mobile phone's voicemail and finds, for now, some closure.
Viv gossips and upsets Debbie
The Dingles are avoiding the press waiting outside the farm, and only open the door when Charity's barrister comes round to tell them he's got grounds for appeal. However, when they try to tell Debbie the good news, they find she has quietly left the house. Viv can't help but lay into Debbie when she comes into the shop, shocking Emily. Debbie quietly pours Viv's tea all over the papers and walks straight out of the shop, and Emily supports her, refusing to speak to Viv at all. Debbie isn't seen again all day, causing untold worry until she turns up at Emily's house that night, where she has been worrying if it was all her fault. Viv comes along to apologise to Emily, and is made to apologise to Debbie instead. Lisa tells her this is a Dingle baptism - they always have trouble, but they always fight back. After speaking to her mum on the phone, a now-feisty Debbie pops out one more time, to go and tell Zoe to watch out.
