With all the drama surrounding his pregnant sister Victoria and his own plans to start a family with hubby Aaron, Robert reaches a decision.
Robert Sugden (played by Ryan Hawley) is a man under pressure at the moment on Emmerdale (opens in new tab).
His marriage to Aaron Dingle (Danny Miller) is on shaky ground because of his obsession with stopping his sister Victoria's (Isobel Hodgins) rapist Lee Posner (Kris Mochrie) harassing her any further or getting his hands on her unborn baby.
But during this troubled time, Robert and Aaron's plans to use a surrogate mum to start their own family have been jeopardised. And after a tense meeting with surrogate mum-to-be Natalie (Thea Beyleveld), Robert now has a BIG decision to make.
What will it be?
Elsewhere in the village, Amy Wyatt (Natalie-Ann Jamieson) is still worried about her mum Kerry's (Laura Norton) sudden decision to arrange a charity fundraiser for the local kids' hospital.
The pair had agreed to keep a low profile since they accidentally started the fire at the village factory, which is still being investigated.
Surely it's only a matter of time before someone gets suspicious as to why Kerry is suddenly feeling so charitable. Could it be because she secretly stole the charity money from the recent Wild West themed fundraiser to pay off Amy's debts!
Speaking of the factory fire, Kim Tate (Claire King) continues to gloat over the misfortune of the Sharma family and her plans to get her hands on the factory for herself.
Jai Sharma (Chris Bisson) still thinks there's a way for his family to solve their financial crisis. But could he be close to caving-in?
Emmerdale continues weekdays at 7:00pm on ITV

Anyone remember the Sunset Beach earthquake/tidal wave?
