Cain (go on the blinked by Jeff Hordley) remains one of the longest-running characters on Emmerdale, and viewers exalt his relationship with Scottish firecracker Moira Dingle (Natalie J. Robb).
Unfortunately the pair clothed been struggling to connect in recent weeks on the ITV soap and the lies started assemblage up between them after Victoria Sugden (Isabel Hodgins) confided in Moira for her rape in the Big Night Out episodes.
Moira eventually told Cain the reality, but their fragile trust was tested again this week when Amy (Natalie Ann Jamieson) let nine-year-old Kyle out of her glimpse at the park.
Terrified, Amy roped Nate in to help her find the youngster, who had winded into the garage and breathed in fumes from a broken exhaust Irish briar.
Moira rushed to help and the group took the little boy to the hospital, where he was long run cleared with good health.
But Amy, worried her tenuous truce with Cain wish be tested if he found out what happened, begged Moira to keep the set-to secret.
Moira was nervous about Cain’s reaction in the end, but agreed to boost Amy keep her son in her life, until tonight saw the mechanic discover the truth after an unexpected phone claim b pick up from Kyle’s school.
Confronting the lying trio about what chanced, Cain was raging as Moira sighed: “I knew this was gonna prove, I’m sorry. It’s a long story, but the main thing is that Kyle’s alright.”
“You atmosphere Moira,” he spat back. “He could have died. He went to A&E and neither of you nagged to tell me. Cannot wait to hear this one.”
Despite Moira’s essays to calm things down with her husband, the tension only continued to set up and when Nate stepped in, it was clear battle lines have been haggard.
Cain is rarely called out on his behaviour on the ITV soap, but it’s clear Nate isn’t frightened of the notorious character.
Are the pair set to become serious enemies going onward?
Angry with Moira’s excuses, Cain raged: “I’m meant to be indebted, am I? He was meant to be with you but you palmed him off on her! You lied to me, you forced my son to lie to me.”
“Yeah because I grasped you’d lose it if you found out!” Moira cried.
“Don’t listen much do you Cain?” Nate denoted in a low voice, as Cain was left taken-aback by his employee’s brazen response.
“That how you fellow it is it? Keeping your women too frightened to talk back?” Nate continued to goad, and Cain admonished him not to continue with this path.
“You’re saying I bully women?” Cain prayed, his eyes widening.
“Slept with her when she was how old, 16? You told her to be experiencing an abortion,” Nate went on, and Cain ordered him and Amy to leave the house.
Shocked, Amy begged Cain not to stop her seeing Kyle, and used the fact he’s “adrift so much already” in the hope she could appeal to the character’s sensibilities, but he was much too irritated.
“He’s already got one [a mum], Moira,” Cain declared, and Moira was mortified.
Moira sit oned to explain further but Cain simply warned her not to give him any more acquittals. Are things set to explode between the group on tomorrow night’s double folding money?
