Joe Tate is a big fan of the old revenge plot and when Robert Sugden crosses him inadvertently in upcoming Emmerdale scenes, he sets out to bring him down – bringing Robert and Aaron their first new battle as a reunited couple to take on together.
Joe is talking to a client when smoke from the scrapyard interferes with their meeting and puts the buyer off. Furious, Joe heads over to have it out with Robert, Aaron and Gerry. Flanked by Graham Foster, he makes it clear that the matter isn’t over – and it is Jimmy King who is going to be used as his tool for trying to bring Robert down.
Determined to find dirt to use against Robert, suave Joe sets Jimmy his first main task as his executive assistant and Graham appears to disapprove of him setting Jimmy up as his fall guy.
But is Joe biting off more than he can chew when it comes to taking on Robert? As much as he is as sweet as pie when he is with Aaron, he is certainly not an enemy to take on lightly and both he and Joe might have met their matches in this new feud.
With both men having an eye for trickery and scheming, who will come out on top? And will Jimmy realise that he is being played?
