TRACY Metcalfe made a shock return to the Dales to marry Nate Robinson.
But she starts off her new life in Emmerdale on the wrong foot by betraying her in-laws with a shock deal.
ITV viewers were shocked to find out Tracy Metcalfe (portrayed by Amy Walsh) was back in the eponymous village.
To top it all off, Tracy celebrated her return to the Dales with her daughter Frankie in tow by tying the knot with Nate Robinson (Jurell Carter).
The pair had been preparing their nuptials in secret, taking Cain and Moira Dingle by surprise as they believed the hunk was trying to crash Tracy’s wedding to another man.
But in returning to Emmerdale, Tracy is adamant on growing a business with a big career move as she’s had big dreams of opening up her own nursery in the village.
However, next week, Tracy’s gutted to receive a loan rejection from the bank and she’s struggling to find any enthusiasm for her job at the B&B.
Bob Hope (Tony Audenshaw) clocks that she’s feeling low and bamboozles her into feeling more motivated.
The following day, Caleb Milligan’s (Will Ash) intrigued to overhear a conversation between Belle Dingle (Eden Taylor-Draper) and Nate about Tracy’s struggles to find an investor for her nursery.
Finding her, Tracy’s left with food for thought when Caleb moots investing in her proposed nursery.
Unfortunately, Nate’s frustrated with Tracy when it looks like she’s tempted to go into business with Caleb as he knows it will infuriate his father Cain (Jeff Hordley).
Tracy accuses Nate of caring more for Cain’s feelings than the welfare of his family.
With the farm still struggling financially, Cain tells Moira (Natalie J Robb) it’s time for a tough choice; either Nate or Mack must be made redundant.
An unaware Nate is relieved when Tracy sees how involving Caleb in her nursery would cause conflict.
Yet things take a nasty turn when Moira announces that he and Mack are going to be put in a competitive interview process for the one remaining job at the farm.
A furious Tracy immediately makes a call to Caleb to take him up on his offer and Nate no longer has a leg to stand on.
Will Caleb invest in Tracy’s nursery idea?
How will Cain react?
While Tracy was gone, viewers and villagers were introduced to Caleb Milligan, Faith Dingle’s secret son.
Although Chas Dingle welcomed him with open arms in the Dales, Cain was more reluctant to form a bond with him, becoming increasingly suspicious of the newcomer.
But when he was finally taking a liking to him, Cain was proven right to be cautious around Caleb.
Earlier this year, Caleb was exposed as Frank Tate’s illegitimate child, the result of an affair with Faith Dingle, and his plans to steal Kim Tate’s fortune was flung out in the open.
Cain and the rest of the Dingles felt betrayed by Caleb as he had tricked Moira into selling her own farm to keep up appearances with Kim and earn her trust.
Could Cain direct his wrath towards Tracy?
Who will Nate stand by?
