Sunday 16th October 2022
THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM: The episode opens on the Emmerdale village with Kim thoughtful as she rides her horse in the beautiful surroundings. We see Moira Barton looking out across her farm land whilst in the village Dawn and Lucas set a red kite off up over the houses. Up at Home Farm a brooding Will looks pensive ahead of his wedding day. Whilst Priya hurriedly dashes about preparing the wedding, above her we see that the sky darkens ominously. Eric Pollard strides out returning from visiting the grave of his deceased wife Val whilst stressed vicar Charles is surprised to spot his bride to be Kim out riding ahead of her wedding day. When Kim eyes Harriet from her horse, it’s clear there’s unfinished business…

WEDDING: TO BE OR NOT TO BE? At Home Farm, Billy’s worried when Will informs him there may now not be a wedding as he and Kim need to have it out if they’re going to move forward. Kim arrives home and their argument commences. Will is insistent he doesn’t want to be with Harriet and puts the ball firmly back in Kim’s court. Has he said enough to win back his bride? Before long Kim confronts Harriet who is very surprised to see her. Suddenly Harriet snaps and grabs Kim by the throat. How will Kim react and what can Kim say or do to get Harriet to back off from her man?

Meanwhile, at the Church, the wedding guests get settled ahead of Kim’s arrival. On word her arrival is imminent the guests head outside to see the spectacle of the elegant and magisterial Kim arriving down main street on horseback.

The wedding ceremony commences. After the ceremony, on leaving the church, the wedding party are shocked by the intensity of the wind. Back at Home Farm the wedding celebrations begin. When Lydia arrives and asks for help in the search for Amelia, Kim steps up to saddle her horse ready to go looking for Amelia in the storm.

AMELIA’S STUCK IN THE STORM AS SHE GOES INTO LABOUR ALONE.

Amelia prepares for her picnic date with Noah. Later, the wind is really picking up as heavily pregnant Amelia makes her way through the countryside for her date with Noah. With the force of the wind Amelia is blown about and with her contractions having started she desperately calls her dad for help. Dan panics to get the call, his worry increases when Amelia’s phone dies before she can tell him exactly where she is. As Amelia heads to find shelter Harriet battles her way in the wind to try and find Amelia and save the day. Before long Lydia arrives at Home Farm to ask for their help in the search for Amelia and it’s Kim who steps up.. Out in the fields and fighting the dangerous conditions, Harriet bombs across the countryside on a quad bike. Elsewhere, Kim is struggling against the elements on her horse when she spots the tyre tracks of Harriet’s quad. She begins to follow Harriet’s path into the woods.

ALSO: Watching Noah and Amelia share a happy exchange out on Main Street, Sam is resentful and soon argues with his son Samson over his recent behaviour towards Amelia. Chas is angry at Al, blaming him for her not being there for her mum. And Aaron believes his mother is truly done with Al. Al speaks to Chas and realising it’s over states if he can’t have her, he’s leaving town today. But is that truly the end of it? It’s still a war between Nicola and Charles after the wedding ceremony, Nicola without a lift to the reception begrudgingly accepts Charles’ offer of a lift.

Emmerdale airs a huge week from Sunday October 16 on ITV.

Before all the drama tho take a trip down memory lane with Emmerdale – 50 Unforgettable Years

This one-off special documentary celebrating 50 years of Emmerdale tells the story of how a sleepy daytime afternoon series about rural folk became the award-winning, ratings-busting, peak-time drama that it is today. 

A mixture of compelling classic Emmerdale clips and rarely seen gems will be mined from the archive for viewers to relish. From family feuds, fires and fights to more light hearted moments from life on the farm and in the village that goes by the name of – Emmerdale.

They will feature alongside contributions from much-loved cast members, as the stars of Emmerdale past and present watch back their famous storylines to share reflections on their characters and memories from across the years.

With a treasure trove of behind-the-scenes secrets and anecdotes, the acclaimed cast will remember key moments from the last five decades.

This milestone celebratory tribute will also recall some of the standout 74 weddings, 43 births and 105 deaths in the show since 1972, whilst reminiscing over some of the show’s most popular family dynasties including The Sugdens, The Tates and The Dingles.

Along the way, we’ll discover the original ambitions of Emmerdale Farm’s creator – the playwright Kevin Laffan, how the TV critics and viewers responded to the show and its early depiction of rural life, and ultimately how it has transformed to reflect the changing lives and appetites of its loyal audience.
