Dan Spencer from Emmerdale consents to evading capture with his daughter Amelia the following week.
Dan, who recently decided to enter a guilty plea in court, decides to forego punishment for his one-punch assault on Lloyd.
Dan does his best to make plans for Amelia’s future early the next week as he gets ready for his unavoidable prison sentence.
Amelia has different ideas and offers her own recommendation, suggesting that they flee to Ireland so that their family can remain united.
Dan argues that it’s a ridiculous concept, but he begins to reconsider after realizing how much this means to Amelia.
When a frazzled Amelia almost accidently hurts her infant daughter Esther, it’s the last straw.
Dan intervenes to save them both in the nick of time, serving as yet more illustration of what Amelia would lose if he were to leave her.
Dan decides to flee and enlists the aid of his friend Cain Dingle after observing Amelia’s fear of the future. Amelia is also cautioned by him not to discuss their plan with her lover Noah Dingle.
Soon after, Cain gives the Spencers the necessary items for their new life in Ireland, including ferry tickets, an old car, and a burner phone.
Dan, Amelia, and Esther leave the town in a group of three, but did they truly make the correct choice, and will their hazardous scheme succeed?
