1. Oscar makes a discovery
Oscar arrives at Emmerdale and tells Gail, Ryan and Charity that his mum knew about his visit to the village. While he’s sheepish about going home, Sophie bursts in and is furious. Gail and Charity are thrown when Ryan snaps back and unleashes his hurt. Charity takes Oscar away to give them space to discuss everything. While Gail apologises to Sophie, she’s firm that it’s up to Oscar to decide.
Later on, Charity thinks about how much to reveal to Oscar, but Mack reassures her to keep things simple. After some probing from Oscar about Ryan’s father, she admits her age and Oscar works out the implications of it. Oscar handles the situation maturely and reassures Charity he’s glad Ryan isn’t around. Sophie and Oscar later come round to each other and she agrees to let him see Gail and Ryan again.
2. Tracy has to decide
Tracy takes the opportunity to pitch her nursery idea to Gabby, who is keen to consider it. Proud of her new opportunity to rid herself of Caleb, she relishes in telling him – but he remains smug.
The next day, Caleb asks to sit in on the meeting as an investor, and it puts off Gabby completely. Tracy is livid and asks Moira for her opinion and she suggests giving Caleb the money back to see if he would actually take it.
Tracy is keen for Nate not to find out the truth about her affair – and Moira warns she’s playing a dangerous game. Tracy goes ahead with transferring the money back to Caleb, but when he rejects it, how will Tracy react? Is it really over between them?
