The village debutante has so far managed to make more enemies than friends since arriving in Emmerdale, but she’s befriended Nate (Jurell Carter). With Naomi (Karene Peter) and Manpreet Sharma (Rebecca Sarker) already at odds, her father Charles Anderson (Kevin Mathurin) is keen to try to keep the peace in his family. However, Naomi could end up getting pregnant with Nate, which could not only tear her own family apart, but could also see Nate’s ex, Tracy Metcalfe (Amy Walsh), make a dramatic comeback.
Tonight’s episode saw the spark grow between Nate and Naomi, much to Charles’ dismay.
In one scene, she was trying to figure out where Nate would take her on a date.
“Can I at least have a hint?” she begged him, to which he replied, “You’ll have to wait and see.”
“He’ll take me out later but won’t tell me where,” Naomi later explained to Marcus Dean (Darcy Grey).
Marcus replied, “Anyone who is anyone will come to our barbecue later.

“Maybe it’s a chance for us to get to know each other a little better.”
“And then you can just go to bed afterwards,” commented Ethan Anderson (Emile John).
Later, the two went to the barbecue together, but a concerned Charles had a warning for his daughter.
“You and Nate seem to be getting very close,” he remarked to an impatient Naomi.
“We’re just friends,” she insisted unconvincingly, to which Charles replied, “Sounds like a little more than that.”
A worried Manpreet was horrified to find Charles unconscious shortly after his argument with Naomi.
Naomi rushes over and asks what happened, claiming that Charles was fine when she left him.
However, Manpreet accused her of hurting him and Harriet Finch (Katherine Dow Blyton) ended up arresting him.
Later at the hospital, Ethan tried to make Manpreet realize Naomi might not have touched Charles.
“She’s not going to get away with this,” the doctor said grimly, looking at Charles as he lay in a coma on a hospital bed.
Although it was soon revealed that Naomi had not attacked her father, Manpreet and Naomi have not seen each other since.
If Naomi becomes pregnant with Nate, the two will cause even more chaos in their families.
Nate’s ex Tracy kicked him out after he cheated on her and she soon left the village.
However, if word gets out about Nate and Naomi, she might go back to the farmer.
With Tracy back on the scene and Charles and Naomi torn apart by news of the bombshell, the new partnership could wreak havoc on the soap opera.
Tracy’s return was previously teased as part of the soap opera’s 50th anniversary in October.
Could the news that Nate has another baby on the way be the reason Tracy is making a comeback?
She may have bitten off more than she can chew if she tries to confront Naomi, who doesn’t hold back when in conflict.
Will the couple end up fleeing the village together to escape the tragedy, or will they stay and try to solve their family problems?
Emmerdale continues Wednesday at 7.30pm on ITV.
