Two Emmerdale favourites are in turmoil in this episode.
Aaron, who has a history of self-harming, is feeling icolated since his husband, Robert, went to prison for murder. The struggling Mechanic disappears causing concern for the other fan favourite who is in jeopardy.
Liv wonders where Aaron has gone and begins to search for her brother by retracing his steps. As she crosses a footbridge Liv suffers a seizure and collapses onto the cold muddy ground. With it being the Winter, Liv needs to be found quickly before hypothermia sets in.
Will Aaron and Liv be found?
Meanwhile, a postman delivers letters to the village.
Elsewhere, Nate is apologetic.
