There is gun drama in Fair City tonight on RTÉ One as Emmet and Oakley face off and tragedy ensues. 

The gripping storyline has been building for months, and in Wednesday night's episode Emmet puts his plan into action to free the hostages. 

With Oakley distracted, Emmet makes his move for the flare gun, but things take another twist as Oakley threatens to set the house on fire.

New photos just released show the hostages' terrifying ordeal - with worse to come in Carrigstown.
