Jai couldn't be any happier.
He's back with Laurel and he's working again. His life is finally back on track!
At Take A Vow, where his sister Priya works, he's helping out when his boss Kim arrives, instantly souring the mood.
She's furious about the zero hours contracts fiasco and after giving Jai a mouthful, she throws his coat on the floor in disgust and storms out!
Needing a coffee following Kim's outburst, Jai takes Laurel to the cafe only to realise his wallet is missing.
Presuming it's been left at Take A Vow, the couple return and start searching.
To Jai's horror his wallet is found, stuffed down the back of a chair, with a bag of drugs close by!
When Laurel demands an explanation and her recovering addict boyfriend struggles to find the words, she takes his reaction as a sign of guilt and decides Jai's using again.
Jai reckons Kim's framed him out of spite but exasperated Laurel, and his sister Priya, have heard it all before…
So who's right? Who owns the drugs?
Elsewhere, Rhona tries to mediate between Marlon and April. The father and daughter fare much better when they're left alone to talk.
As an emotional conversation unfolds, can April persuade her poorly dad he's not a burden? Will humiliated Marlon agree to stay on at home rather than return to hospital?
It's moving in day for Ethan and Marcus whose relationship is moving at breakneck speed.
Can stressed-out Ethan stop his dad Charles from winding up Marcus?
Emmerdale continues weeknights from 7.30pm on ITV.
