Frank’s (played by Michael Praed) death hasn’t been an easy one to move on from on Emmerdale, as the truth surrounding his demise is still up in the air.
The ex convict was blown up at the Sharma factory explosion, but the police currently believe Frank was the one to blame for the fire, claiming his appearance on the day as the simple explanation.
Frank was saving his daughter Tracy Metcalfe (Amy Walsh) from death at the time, but he’d already been into the factory earlier that day on the ITV soap.
The culprits are actually Kerry Wyatt (Laura Norton) and her daughter Amy Wyatt (Natalie Ann Jamieson), who are currently hiding their involvement and laying low, but Tracy is determined to discover the truth about who started the fire.
In tonight’s instalment, Tracy confided in Pete Barton (Anthony Quinlan) about her feelings, saying: “I think they’re wrong about my dad, someone else started that fire I know it.”
“If that’s the case, don’t you owe it to him to find out who it was?” Pete prodded, as Tracy vowed to get justice for her father.
But after a gigantic showdown with an angry Charity Dingle (Emma Atkins), who was determined to support her girlfriend Vanessa Woodfield (Michelle Hardwick), Megan’s head was clear.
Crying, Megan asked Tracy if she’d ever thought about packing up and leaving the village, which seemed to bring up some memories.
“Yeah I have, in the past,” Tracy said painfully.
Claiming she had nothing left, Megan sobbed about her situation and Tracy tried to support her by saying she’s got friends and people who love her.
Megan said firmly: “The truth is this place will drag you down. I want more for me and Eliza.”
“What you saying?” Tracy pressed, clearly worried about her father’s former girlfriend’s train of thought.
“I’m saying that I’m done,” Megan confirmed. “I’ve finally had enough. I’m gonna get things in place, and then I’m leaving.”
But is the simple fact Megan asked Tracy if she’d ever considered the option a hint at what’s to come?
Tracy has been incredibly angry over the villagers’ determination to tarnish her dad’s memory since his death, so she could be close to giving up too.
But the vengeful daughter will surely want to get justice for Frank before she does.
Elsewhere in the Yorkshire Dales, Moira Dingle (Natalie J. Robb) and Nate Robinson (Jurell Carter) continue to tread a fine line after embarking on their affair, and now it seems Pete may have secretly figured out the truth.
When the character walked in to the Butlers Farm kitchen and saw Nate and Moira very close, his expression fell dramatically.
As he glanced back and forth between the pair, it was clear he sensed there was more to their interactions than Nate and Moira were trying to insist.
Moira claimed Nate had simply been asking for a cup of tea, but Pete sat down for a serious conversation with his boss.
“Do you see what I mean?” he pressed. “His head’s not in it.”
“Probably just stuff with Amy [Wyatt], you know how things can be,” Moira shrugged.
“Yeah, women eh,” Pete said before walking off, but could he really be so easily duped?
Emmerdale continues tomorrow at 7.30pm on ITV.
