Ashley (John Middleton) causes more problems this evening by urging Laurel (Charlotte Bellamy) to give him another chance, reminding his wife that he forgave her when she did something wrong last year.
Laurel is disgusted by Ashley's words, but it's Sandy (Freddie Jones) who puts him in his place - telling the troubled vicar that he's deeply ashamed of him.
As months of Sandy's pent-up anger and frustration pours out, it's clear that the Thomas family remains in tatters. Can they ever get back to normal?
Emmerdale airs tonight at 7pm and 8pm on ITV1.
