When an electron is emitted from a metal, you are actually making the metal less stable than it was due to losing charge neutrality. Since metal is a good conductor, most likely it will replace the electron lost very quickly in that location by conducting the electron from somewhere else. Because it is also less stable, any recombination of electron with the now positive metal would actually be more stable so you would actually lose energy not try to release energy.
