In Emmerdale, new character Ethan makes his first appearance in tonight’s second episode (Thursday, January 7).

In the first visit to the Dales, Sarah met up with Danny, who had just been released from prison, and his friend Mason.

Debbie also ends up crossing paths with Charles. He implores Debbie to encourage Sarah to come clean and clear Ethan’s name.

But Debbie warns the vicar to back off leaving him shocked.
