Airing on ITV1

Having been caught in the act with Katie and trapped in a burning garage, Robert is on the warpath as far as Daz is concerned and is determined to silence him before he blabs to Andy about the affair.

Robert throws his weight around before making an agreement with the delinquent that they will both keep quiet, meaning that Robert won’t tell the police that Daz started the fire and Daz will keep quiet about Robert’s relationship with Katie.

From YTV EMMERDALE Monday 26 January 2004 at 7.00pm on ITV1 Network Nicola (NICOLA WHEELER) and Simon's (DALE MEEKS) relationship moves up a gear as they share their first kiss.

Meanwhile, Simon cooks dinner for Nicola at Emily and Paddy’s and they share an enjoyable evening. But when they return to Mill Cottage, Simon meets Bernice for the first time and Nicola is upset by a comment he makes about Bernice being attractive.

Feeling insecure, Nicola tells Simon about Carlos, explaining that Bernice’s affair with her husband-to-be broke her heart. But it is clear that frosty Nicola is quickly warming to Simon as she gives him an intimate kiss goodnight, much to his delight.

Elsewhere in the village, Diane and Bernice get drunk on brandy together but as they talk about Tricia, in a fit of anger Diane hurls her glass across the room. Shocked Bernice tries to calm her down but Diane admits she isn’t coping well with her grief.

A Straight Story? Monday 26.01.04
Andy arrives at the scene of the crime.
Robert leaps into action, both to put out the fire caused by Daz, and also to terrify him into silence about having seen him and Katie kissing half-naked in the garage. He tells him he'll have to go into care if he tells Scott, which also unsettles Katie. The two come to a deal that neither will tell, which is tested when Scott arrives and lays into Daz - he thinks he's going to be hung out to dry until Robert takes the blame, saying Daz helped him escape.
Andy wants answered - also pictured Jack.
Jack and Andy want to get to the bottom of what happened, sure Daz is lying, and Katie has a hard time explaining both her presence and why a passerby would smell of smoke. Robert sticks to his story, even when Jack accuses him of covering up. Simlarly, Andy can't believe Daz, even though Katie backs him. He later tells Jack about his frustration that everything goes wrong when he tries to help Daz. Katie overhears the worst possible - that Andy is considering throwing in the towel and sending Daz away to people who can cope with him.
Nicola and Simon kiss
Nicola is gutted to find she's not going out to a restaurant, even though Simon has laid on unbelievably expensive wine and fish at Emily's. She is eventually won over by his cooking, and his stories of when he was a chef. The two have a great evening and are back at Rodney's - about to kiss - when Bernice tells them off for disturbing Gabby. Simon defuses the situation by flirting with Bernice, but upsets Nicola in the process. He spots a raw nerve, and Nicola confesses of former fiancee Carlos' affair with Bernice and her jealousy of her glamorous sister. Simon persuades her he's far more interested in what people are like, and the two kiss romantically before parting for the night with huge grins on their faces.
