Tracy breaks down in Emmerdale

As Nate forces her back to work.


When a guilty Nate breaks the news to Tracy that the farm may have to be closed down if an infection’s spread, she tries to stay calm. Concerned about money, he asks Tracy to return to work and she agrees, trying to hide her panic about leaving Frankie.


That evening, Tracy tries her best to sound positive as Nate books Lydia in for some childcare tomorrow to cover Tracy's return to work.


Left alone, we see how Tracy is struggling, clearly freaking out about leaving Frankie and the next day anxiety increases tenfold when Nate breaks the news that Lydia’s fallen ill and Faith’s taking over for her.


Emotional, Tracy opens up to a sympathetic Pollard about her feelings over leaving Frankie, who suggests she finishes for the day and Tracy dashes to get her stuff, desperate to get home.


At Tug Ghyll, feeling an uncontrollable stab of pain, Faith drops Frankie’s dummy on the floor just as Tracy arrives to witness it happening. Tracy struggles to contain her anger that Faith was going to return the dirty dummy to her baby.


After seeing no sign of thawing from Tracy after her faux pas with the dummy, Faith soon leaves and Nate arrives home to find Tracy upset. He's worried when Tracy resolves not to go back to work, telling him that Frankie’s only safe with her.



Later, Wendy approaches Tracy to remind her of Frankie’s jabs tomorrow and she's uncomfortable when Wendy touches her baby with unwashed hands and rushes Frankie away.


Back home, Tracy’s stricken when she accidentally scratches Frankie while trying to wipe the germs off her face and later we witness a helpless Tracy, break down.
