Will Dan ever for­give Daz?


Inside Soap - - NEWS -

De­fi­ant Kerry is­sues an ul­ti­ma­tum to Dan this week: for­give your brother, or you can sleep in the car!

Dan has been strug­gling to cope with the re­turn of his er­rant sib­ling, es­pe­cially since the last time Daz was in the vil­lage, he tried to cop off with Kerry. But see­ing as Daz has fallen on hard times, Kerry is de­ter­mined that his fam­ily are go­ing to rally round, and she’s go­ing to make sure that in­cludes Dan…

“Dan doesn’t trust Daz at all – he’s very wary of him,” ex­plains Liam Fox, who plays wor­ried Dan. “Kerry de­cides to pun­ish him by show­ing him what it’s like to live rough, and or­ders him to sleep in the camper van! It’s her way of try­ing to unite their fam­ily unit, and get Dan to think about things a lit­tle bit more.”

That’s eas­ier said than done, though, be­cause Dan has hard­ened him­self to Daz and the tales of woe he spins.

He’s also feel­ing very sore that Daz was the rea­son his son Sean took off to join the Army – and the fall­out from that de­ci­sion, with Sean hav­ing a ter­ri­ble ac­ci­dent, was bru­tal. So it’s a lot for him to for­give and for­get so eas­ily.

He’s con­vinced that Daz will tell story after story to worm his way back in, be­fore let­ting them all down again.”

We know that Dan has a soft heart, though, and that Kerry is noth­ing if not per­sis­tent. How­ever, when Kerry re­calls her own hard times and how lucky she was to find sup­port, it’s a ten­der mo­ment that leads Dan to change his mind…

“Once Kerry ex­plains her rea­sons for help­ing Daz, it soft­ens the sit­u­a­tion,” shares Liam. “Daz ex­plains a bit more about what’s hap­pened to him, and there’s not his usual bravado and con­fi­dence. Daz seems like a bro­ken man, so Dan de­cides to do the right thing and let him in.”

That doesn’t mean all is for­given – Dan will be keep­ing a close eye on Daz as long as he’s in the fam­ily. And it seems his fears could be well-founded after we see Daz stash­ing an
