In different parts of the Dales, Faye Lamb (Jane Gurnett) and Mary Goskirk (Louise Jameson) grow more at ease with one another as their relationship develops.

While Mary’s recent dates have mostly been a disaster, she looked to hit the jackpot when she met newcomer Faye.

As they go on yet another date, they start to open up more about their personal lives, which prompts Mary to take a risk.

She leans in for a kiss, much to Faye’s pleasure, who seems to share her emotions.

The episode also has Gus, Rhona Goskirk’s ex-husband, arriving unexpectedly and upending her life, played by Zoë Henry (Alan McKenna).

Gus shows up to the Woolpack as a customer as Rhona is out to lunch with her current husband Marlon Dingle (Mark Charnock). Rhona recognises him and instantly wonders what he is there for.

The next day, Rhona intends to meet up with Gus properly, but it quickly becomes evident that he ran into her for a particular purpose.

While they were dating, Gus and Rhona had several embryos frozen, but Rhona believed they had been destroyed by the time she broke up with Gus.

Gus will eventually admit that the embryos still exist and that he wants to utilise one of them to have a child, which Rhona calls “the biggest mistake of her life.”

Rhona must make a huge choice: does she say no and deny Gus a kid, or does she say yes and recognise that a child who is genetically hers already exists without her acting as a parent?

Emmerdale will begin tonight at 7.30 p.m. on ITV1.
