Billy and Dawn face homelessness in Emmerdale

Will Alex back down when Kim and Will hold him hostage?


When the money from Harriet’s will isn’t enough to keep their house, Billy and Dawn are daunted by the prospect of becoming homeless.


Together, they form a plan to buy Woodbine for themselves until Alex threatens to take away Clemmie if he doesn’t get Harriet’s money.


The next day, as everyone sets off for Harriet’s funeral, Dawn’s anxious about Alex’s threats but her family vow to fight her corner and she hopes she hasn’t lied when she assures Clemmie that their family will stick together.


Meanwhile, Alex is unphased when Will manhandles him, demanding he leaves Dawn alone. But as Kim baits Alex to her car with the temptation of the money he’s after, he’s bundled into their car boot.



Having tied him up in Home Farm stables, Kim and Will negotiate a cheaper payoff and as they leave, a fearful Alex is left to stew on the decision.


At The Hide, as Will tries to tell Billy about Alex, Kim heads over to shut it down and together, Kim and Will urge Billy not to act on his aggression towards Alex. Keeping the hostage situation secret, Kim vows to keep her family safe.


Furious, Will prepares to beat down Alex, and Kim is impressed with his bravado. After pummelling a bloodied Alex, Will composes himself. But with Alex remaining steadfast about his demands, a united and formidable Kim and Will leave him to suffer overnight.



Meanwhile, Dan’s emotional when Amelia makes a heartfelt speech in honour of Harriet. And Laurel is shocked by Bernice’s callous attitude towards Dan.


And when a drunken Dan worries about Harriet’s true feelings, Will comforts him with the lie that she was happy with him.
