Alex is awkward around Moira, although Andy assumes he is just avoiding work. Moira then steps in to defend Alex when Andy complains about his apparent lack of motivation. Later, Moira returns home from the pub to a highly charged atmosphere between herself and Alex. Suddenly, Adam bursts in, having returned from his trip - and Moira is relieved he hasn't seen anything going on between them. Despite being pleased to see her son, Moira has mixed feelings about Adam being back. Adam thanks Alex for looking after his mum, unaware of what has been going on. Moira later comes downstairs to find Alex in the kitchen, and they both know they're playing with fire but can't resist kissing. Meanwhile, Pearl is dismayed when she discovers that Marlon is taking Rhona and Paddy to court over Leo. She suggests they should stay in the village, but a stubborn Paddy says that Marlon can't control him. Later, Rhona spots Laurel squeeze Marlon's arm, and she realises his motivation for wanting to stay in Emmerdale. Rhona soon tells Paddy that Laurel is the reason Marlon suddenly wants to stay in the village. An annoyed Paddy wants to confront Marlon immediately, but Rhona warns him to stay away for the time being. Elsewhere, Dan apologises to Chas for hitting on her, but is chuffed when she suggests another drink soon.
