Ellis Chapman (played by Asan N'Jie) wants nothing more than to protect his half-brother, Billy Fletcher (Jay Kontzle), but his actions put him at risk in Emmerdale.
The drama unfolds next week in the ITV soap when Ellis grows suspicious of Billy’s secret meeting with gangster Max after he gives him a subpar explanation for their dubious meetup.
Then when Max threatens Billy after he has second thoughts about using his work van for a robbery, Ellis hatches a plan to save him.
Having discovered what they are plotting to do, the university drop-out sabotages the robbery, leaving Billy fearing what Max will do in retaliation.
Eventually, Max rocks up at Tall Trees threatening Billy’s entire family, before the pair get into a vicious brawl.
Later when Max almost runs Jessie Grant (Sandra Marvin) over in his car, she demands to know why Billy is hanging out with the thug again.
The mother-of-two fears for her son’s safety following the incident and worries what Max might do next to either him or a member of the family.
A day after, Max follows Ellis, who is with other villagers on a night out and sends Billy a threatening photo of his brother at the club.
Frantically panicking, Billy heads into town to help but will he get there before Max does any harm to Ellis?
Also, how far will Billy go to protect his younger brother from the wicked villain?
