So Emmerdale viewers finally learned the identity of the person to unmask abuser Maya Stepney (Louisa Clein) – Liv Flaherty (Isobel Steele). But no one expected the next big twist – instead of coming clean, Liv uses the knowledge to her own gain.
With a voice recording of Jacob confessing to their relationship, Liv turns to blackmail to earn herself a pretty penny over what she’s discovered, leaving Maya and Jacob Gallagher (Joe-Warren Plant) scrabbling around to find such a huge amount of cash.
Liv steps up her blackmailing, demanding £5,000 in cash ASAP or else the audio leaks. Maya and Jacob are terrified of being discovered as Leyla Harding (Roxy Shahidi) starts quizzing Jacob. He sneaks into Pollard’s barn looking for cash and Val’s ring with the intention of pawning it in the hope of raising funds, but can be really bring himself to resorting to stealing to sort out his own mess?
Liv turns up the pressure when she tells them either they get her the cash or she turns over the file. The next day David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden) suggests Jacob go and visit his mum in Portugal but Jacob hates the idea. He’s got too much to deal with back home, not that David knows, yet.
Gabby Thomas (Rosie Bentham) spots Jacob and Leanna together and wrongly assumes she’s the mystery girlfriend, while Maya heads to meet Liv in a layby to hand over the cash.
But Liv isn’t done with her extortion tactics; seeing how easy it was to get £5k, now she wants £10k.
Later, as Liv and Gabby spend time together Liv becomes overwhelmed with feelings of guilt and breaks down in front of her friend. Will she confess everything?
