Airing on ITV1

The pub is a hive of activity as everyone prepares for the grand re-opening. Bernice is in her element as the organiser and drives everyone around the bend, especially Louise, while Chas is busy flirting with Syd.

Later Marlon takes Diane to visit Tricia’s grave with a bottle of champagne and three glasses. He is close to tears as he toasts the good times with Tricia. Afterwards, he tells Diane that Jack loves her and that she should grab happiness while she can. As everyone crowds into the pub and the champagne flows, Diane announces a toast to Tricia.

From YTV EMMERDALE Thursday 29 January 2004 at 7.00pm on ITV1 Network The Woolpack re-opens and the villagers have a toast to Tricia.

Diane talks to Bernice about her marriage proposal from Jack but tells her she is still moving to Brighton. But later when Louise questions Diane about the move she is non-committal and deep in thought. Will she make an honest man of Jack or follow her daughter to Brighton?

Katie tells Robert she feels guilty about Daz going into care and is shocked by his callous response. Later she goes to see him and tells him they have got to end things, pointing out that she is supposed to be getting married in three weeks. But Robert turns on his usual arrogant charm and once again she can’t resist him.

Rodney and Jack
Jack and Diane both feel odd after last night's marriage proposal. Andy isn't interested in talking about it, so Jack has to reluctantly turn to, of all people, Diane's ex-husband Rodney. Rodney confirms that Diane loves Jack, but says the ultimatum may have been a bad move. Marlon also reminds Diane that life's too short for mucking about when the two drink a graveside toast to Tricia prior to the Woolpack reopening. At the celebrations, Bernice realises just how much her mum loves Jack, and tells her a move to Brighton may be hasty.
Andy and Katie
Andy is upset when he finds departed Daz's fishing rod, but Katie makes things worse by insisting that Daz can't come and visit, so won't be picking it up. She is secretly very upset by what she and Robert have done to Daz, but Robert is utterly remorseless. They meet at the garage later and Katie tries to end the relationship, but Robert talks her into staying. He smugly sees it as fun before she settles down - and that she likes him because he's a bad boy. Later, Andy gets very prickly when Ethan comes round with a new way of settling the Daz situation. Ethan is suprised that Daz has gone into care, but Andy has had enough of people sticking their noses in.
Jack and Diane
Back at the Woolpack, the celebrations get very merry, with Laurel standing up to Bernice and Chas flirting with Syd in front of Chloe. Diane, aided by a few glasses of brandy, slips out to see Jack. He fears the worst when she arrives at his door after the deadline, and is irritated by her long speech about how she has reached her conclusion. He tells her to get on with it and get out, only to be told that actually she'll stay. She will be his wife.
