Ellis Chapman is in perilous danger in next week's Emmerdale when a nasty gangster seeks revenge.
The soap's dramatic 'Big Night Out' ends in disaster for several characters as they let their hair down in a Hotten nightclub.
Suspicious Ellis is drawn into Billy Fletcher's mess, which has devastating consequences for the brothers.
Billy agrees to secretly meet up with prison buddy Max, who senses he might have second thoughts about their planned heist.
Realising that Billy might not use the Sharma's delivery van for the robbery - evil Max issues a chilling threat.
Ellis rumbles their dodgy plan and manages to sabotage the robbery.
Billy isn't pleased and worries that Max will retaliate in the worst way possible.
His fears are proven correct when Max rocks up at Tall Trees and threatens Billy's entire family.
Billy loses control and starts punching his former pal as the pair become embroiled in a brutal fight.
Furious Max shows he's not playing games as he warns cowering Billy to follow his orders.
Things get worse when Max nearly runs over Jessie Grant, who demands to know why her son is hanging round with the gangster again.
When Ellis heads out on the town with the rest of the villagers, he is unaware that Max is stalking him.
To prove how dangerous he can be, nasty Max threatens Billy by sending a concerning photo of Ellis at the club.
With his brother in serious danger, panicking Billy rushes out to save his brother from being harmed.
Billy faces a race against time as he frantically searches for Ellis - but will he reach his brother in time?
And how far will Billy go to protect the ones he loves?
No one will be quite sure what has happened, but all will become clear in a series of flashbacks spread over two weeks.
*Emmerdale airs weekdays on ITV at 7pm with an extra episode on Thursdays at 8pm
