Emmerdale - Coming In January 2020



Terence punches father Alan unconscious.

22nd February 2006: After yesterday's events, Terence wakes with a sore head and packs his bag. Terence hides his things as Alan arrives and wanting to give him good news, Alan reports that his cheque should have cleared by now and that he'll have a bankers draft made out to Terence for £20,000 later today. Terence decides to hang around for the money and drinks in the pub while he waits. Adam enters and can't help but make a dig at a disgruntled Terence. Fuelled by alcohol, Terence flies at the doctor and Alan is alarmed when he comes in only to find his son throwing punches and mouthing off. They leave and Alan questions his son. His tongue loosened by alcohol, Terence admits the child abuse towards Steph. He accuses Alan of being naive. Alan is in a state of shock and refuses to hand Terence the bankers note. Terence in a rage hits out at Alan and Alan falls to the floor unconscious. Terence takes the money and runs. Steph and Adam arrives at Holdgate Farm to check on Alan and find Terence leaving in Alan's car. They go inside and find Alan on the floor, he has re-gained consciousness but still tries to defend Terence's actions, much to Steph's frustration.
