Kim lets him sleep. Henry discovers Alan has made a deal with Skipdale Breweries in order to secure the money on The Woolpack, not knowing that the pub was already owned by Ephraim Monk's who have now found out about his deal. Nick is pleased to think that no-one caught him sleeping on the job. Elsa tells him she has been speaking to the health visitor who has informed her to obtain a breast pump so she and Nick can take it in turns to feed Alice in the night, allowing them both more sleep. Alan arrives back at The Woolpack to discover that Ephraim Monk are removing their pipes, beer pumps and barrels. He is forced to close the pub until Skipdale Breweries can provide a replacement. Rachel is surprised to arrive back at Emmerdale to find Henry seeking sanctuary and Michael working at the farm. Elsa struggles looking after Alice alone when she won't stop crying. Rachel is pleased to find a valentine's card from Michael in her post. Sarah decides to use The Woolpack closing as a good opportunity to quit and commit to the farm. Rachel fills her in on her trip and hints that she may be willing to give Michael another chance. Jack discovers a cow on the farm which has just calved has got milk fever. He calls Zoe who is forced to postpone a night out with Archie to treat the cow. Kathy isn't impressed when Chris calls Kim to say he's going to be late home. Jack invites Zoe and Archie to eat with him and Sarah after she's treated the cow. Michael informs Rachel that Zoe is downstairs treating a cow. She's reluctant to go and speak to her and is pleased when Michael stays upstairs with her too. Nick and Elsa continue to struggle with Alice's crying. Kathy accuses Chris of going to the casino when he finally arrives home. He assures her he's been working all day. He confides in her that Kelthwaite Engineering, one of the haulage firm's biggest customers, has gone bust despite him recently setting up a big contract with them.
