In a bid to resolve his differences with Gloria, Eric arrives in London and makes a beeline for Westminster. Within minutes of tracking her down, though, he soon realises that she is way out of her depth. Gloria's secretaries are calling the shots and it's obvious that she is in dire need of help in preparing her maiden Parliamentary speech. And his concern deepens when they take a coffee break and he notices that Gloria's includes a healthy dose of rum! But can Eric get her back on track and steer her away from a disastrous debut in Parliament? It's a black day back in Emmerdale as Angie is finally laid to rest. The turnout is large but the gossips have a field day speculating about why Sean has seemingly snubbed the funeral. Marc is bitter and angry about the death of his mother and vents his fury at her colleagues - blaming the force for her death. It's more than he can take and he announces that he needs to escape the village for good and put the painful memories it holds behind him. Cain is forced to watch the funeral from a distance - unable to share his own grief with anyone for fear of the truth about his involvement with her death being revealed. Charity provides a shoulder to cry on - but will Cain unburden his guilt on her? Zak is troubled too, but for very different reasons. He is struggling to deal with the news that his father is dying and Lisa urges him to see him before it is too late. And a familiar face, Jason Kirk returns to the village with some surprise news for Latisha that could see her heading for pastures new.
