Tom returns and shows the world that he’s
not to be messed with.
Ethan’s faced with a scary prospect – visiting Steph in jail.
Max works out where his bread’s buttered!
Tom (Ken Farrington) tells Max (Charlie Kemp) that he would like him
to stay in the village and expects him to either join the family business
or use his veterinary training and join a practice. Max protests that
he wants to continue his travelling but Tom insists that if he does
he will have to support himself.
Max looks for his girlfriend and tells her that he won’t be
going travelling. They say their goodbyes and as Amy (Bethany Webb)
disappears in her taxi Max promptly deletes her number from his phone,
clearly ready to move on to his next conquest.
Elsewhere, Ashley (John Middleton) asks Ethan (Liam O’Brien)
to visit Steph (Lorraine Chase) as a work commitment is preventing
him from going himself. Ethan explains that he is uncomfortable with
the idea of visiting the prison as he believes Steph to be guilty.
Ashley points out that it is their job to be there for everybody, guilty
or not, leaving Ethan with little choice but to go.

||Jimmy continues to fret about Tom’s absence.
He wonders whether Tom might be trying to track down Cain. Sadie
looks alarmed but pores scorn on the idea. Jimmy frightens himself
and Sadie when he suggests that Charity may have down away with
Tom as an act of revenge. Later, he accosts Charity in the village
and demands to know what she’s done with Tom. Charity jokes
that she’s done away with him. Jimmy replies that that’s
what she usually does. Charity makes her feelings known by belting
Jimmy in the crown jewels.
||Sadie has a go at Jimmy when he tells her that he’s going
to call the police about Tom’s disappearance. Just then the
phone rings and Jimmy is relieved to hear Tom’s voice. Tom
tells his son that he wants to see the family at his house that
afternoon. Tom is stony faced as his sons gather at Holdgate Farm.
He tells them the story of how he stole a load of scrap metal and
sold it save his business from going under. He tells his sons that
they are soft and don’t share his hunger for success. Tom
demands that his sons put more effort into the business.
||Tom speaks privately with Max and Jimmy in turn. Tom tells Max
that his travelling days are over and he wants him to get a job
as a vet or join the family firm. Next it’s Jimmy’s
turn to feel Tom’s wrath. Tom presents him with the photos
of Charity and Cain and demands to know why he didn’t show
the photos to him sooner. He tells his son that he needs to have
people around him who can tell him the truth. Jimmy apologises
and Tom shocks him by telling him that he’ll never run the
||Sadie fears the worst when she gets a call from Tom saying that
he wants to see her at Holdgate Farm. Sadie is surprised when Tom
thanks her for showing him the photos. Sadie is delighted when
Tom tells her that she is a real asset to the family and offers
her the job of business development manager. Tom shocks Sadie by
asking her to pick her favourite from the photos of Cain and Charity
before putting it in a frame as a reminder of his folly. Jimmy
can’t believe his ears when Sadie tells him about her new
||Ashley asks Ethan to visit Steph in prison for him because he
has to do a christening on the morning of the visit. Ethan is reluctant
to go and tells Ashley that the evidence points to the fact that
Steph killed Shelly. Ashley becomes frustrated with Ethan’s
attitude and orders him to go. Ashley reminds Ethan that he, off
all people, should know what it feels like to be accused of something
you didn’t do.
||Edna sends her petition off to the council using registered delivery.
Val attempts to pinch the envelope from the post office counter
by distracting Emily but gets caught in the act. Eric is touched
when Val tells him about it. Paul continues to be appalled by his
mother’s interest in Emmerdale’s dodgiest bachelor.
