Moira gets trapped in nets under the water. Nate yells out her name, and pleads with Cain to retrieve her, telling him, he can’t swim. Cain grudgingly dives in the water after her. Marlon coaches Chas through her developing birth. Paddy, along with Aaron, arrive at the pub, still isolated from his wife and upcoming child through the lavatory’s door. Charity comes back from Cornwall. Cain gives Moira air but is unable to free the nets from around her feet. He resurfaces for air, before second attempting her rescue. Faith plants the mysterious photo found in Nate’s caravan in the farm’s living room, for it to be purposely found. Cain succeeds to set Moira free, but as they swim to the surface, a massive explosion from the boat blows with Nate still on board. As they rise to the facade, they witness the wreck. Bear gives Paddy some well-needed reassurance on how good of a father he is going to be, much to Paddy’s shock but comfort. The baby is seconds away from being born when Bear manages to break the door down, and Paddy sees the last moments. The grand reopening of The Woolpack is suspended after Bob’s and Mandy’s inebriated antics. Manpreet assures both Chas and Paddy that they have a healthy baby girl, much to Paddy’s bewilderment. Charity has a heart-to-heart with Aaron about Robert’s sentencing. Cain swims away from the wreckage despite Moira begging him to search for Nate. She manages to spot Nate in the distance, floating aboard a plank from the debris. Moira manages to convince Cain to swim to his rescue. Once arriving back at the pier, Cain leaves both Moira and a barely breathing Nate stranded.

Guest cast




  • On-location filming for the lake scenes took place at Brighouse in West Yorkshire at a lake known as Freeman's Cut. The filming schedule took place backwards with the crew shooting the explosion of the boat before filming the build-up. Letters were drawn out to residents of the area informing them of the blow to come. Actors Jeff Hordley and Jurell Carter did the majority of their fight sequence, with help from their stunt doubles. As of this, Jurell had to take one-on-one lessons with a swimming instructor, having previously not been able to swim before the storyline commenced. The underwater scenes were filmed at a film studio in Basildon which has a dedicated marine tank for the occasion. The boat itself is no stranger to being used as a prop in soapland, with it previously being used in a storyline over at fellow soap Coronation Street. Slight amendments were given to the boat such as repainting when the crew at Emmerdale were given it. [1]
