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.
