Scene of the Week (7-11 August 2017)



David and Jacob’s relationship is always one of the most touching familial relationships in Emmerdale so this moment at the end of the week was a nice resolution to their falling out. Having pledged loyalty to best mate of five minutes, Josh, Jacob risked criminal charges and fell out with his family, who were trying to look out for his future rather than the wayward newcomer. After rowing with David, this scene showed us Jacob’s good hearted n and David’s unflinching love for his surrogate son as he promised to support him, if Jacob did the right thing and report Josh. This is one of those well developed onscreen relationships that feels genuine and benefits from the years spent developing their bond, meaning scenes like this are full of warmth.
