Emmerdale viewers feared for Millie Tate during Wednesday evening's episode, with some concerned she had drowned.
The young Tate, played by Willow Bell, was apparently upstairs in her room as her mum Andrea Tate called for her to come downstairs, only for the child to refuse to respond.
Suddenly, Andrea (Anna Nightingale) noticed a leak spreading in the living room, as she ran out into the street to enlist Will Taylor's help to stop the flooding.
Watching from home, viewers were concerned for Millie, wondering why the child had failed to appear during the episode.
Over on Twitter, one said: "Wherr the hell was millie then?#Emmerdale."
"Look at ceiling see water dripping from upstairs where Millie is, so run to find the problem ? Nope run outside ! #emmerdale," wrote a second.
And a third penned: “Why wouldn’t you go upstairs and check Millie hasn’t went in the bath or something #Emmerdale."
"Leak in the house Where's Millie? Has she checked her daughter an the bath ffs," added a fourth.
Thankfully, later in the episode, it was confirmed nothing nasty had happened to Millie during the flooding – but the child was still nowhere to be seen.
When Andrea returned to the house after meeting Leyla Harding (Roxy Shahidi) in the cafe, Will (Dean Andrews) confirmed little Millie was upstairs in her room.
Andrea then confided in Will about her heartache, letting him know she was struggling with life as a single mum after splitting from Jamie Tate.
Later, a furious Jamie (Alexander Lincoln) burst into the house, demanding to see Millie after Andrea suddenly cancelled his babysitting appointment.
Calling Millie's name, he asked his ex-wife where their daughter was, raising his voice as he slowly lost his temper.
Andrea claimed Millie was upstairs on the computer, but yet again, the child was nowhere to be seen.
Is everything okay in the Tate household, or has Millie taken the brunt of the trauma of her parents' separation?
Emmerdale airs on weekdays at 7pm on ITV, with a second helping on Thursdays at 8pm.
