David's latest attempt to reconnect with Jacob blows up in his face as the angry teenager calls his dad's bluff
Monday's episode of Emmerdale is a case of two can play that game for depressed shopkeeper David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden).
With Jacob (Joe-Warren Plant) having frozen his dad out of his life for everything that's gone down with Maya (Louisa Clein), David tried to make contact with his angry son online. Creating a fake profile on a gaming site, he connected to Jacob and the rest is history, as they say.
But it really IS history for David as Jacob has sussed David! Luring his dad and mum, Leyla (Roxy Shahidi), to the cafe, Jacob, the furious teenager exposes their game.
Later, as Pollard (Chris Chittell) tries to get David and Jacob talking the OAP starts struggling to breathe…
Kerry (Laura Norton) sets up a girls' afternoon but the atmosphere sucks as Amy (Natalie Ann Jamieson) and Tracy (Amy Walsh) just won't stop making digs at each other about lady-lovin' local lad Nate (Jurell Carter). How will Kerry handle the loaded situation?
Robert (Ryan Hawley) tries to to stop Victoria (Isabel Hodgins) from selling up and moving away to start afresh elsewhere.
