Charity snares Cain when he returns to the village
Cain has to accept that moira doesn’t want him back
Charity deserves a medal for the sheer effort she’s put into her attempt to bag Cain and, when he returns to the village, she’s on a mission to snare him, good and proper.
First, though, she gets stuck into Ross – well, as reserves go, he’s not a bad one. He’s up for taking part in her scam to steal a dog for a reward, plus he kisses like he means it.
Their dognapping plot goes belly up, and Ross is fuming when Charity reveals she plans to leave with his baby son Moses. He moves in for a snog and she only draws back when a police car pulls up.
When Cain returns, Charity tries to make him jealous by
insisting that she and Ross are an item, but he’s got bigger things on his plate – Moira wants a divorce.
‘Cain has to accept that Moira doesn’t want him back,’ says Jeff Hordley, who plays him. ‘He’s devastated. This isn’t what he wanted, and he’s not in a good place.’
Fed up, Cain announces that he’s leaving the village again, but after he makes snide comments about Charity and Ross, the Woolpack landlady reveals she only said what she did to make him jealous. He proves it did the trick when he kisses her passionately.
Chas notices that Charity is in good spirits and susses that it has something to do with Cain. When he denies it, Charity and Chas both flip. Cain says he’s not ready to go public and Chas warns Charity that her brother will never love her like he does his estranged wife.
Over at the café, Chas asks Brenda if she will come with her to break the news to Moira that Charity and Cain are back together, but the brooding mechanic soon hits upon his own way of spreading the word.
Explains Jeff: ‘He knows that if he tells Brenda he’s with Charity and asks her to keep it secret, it will go viral.’
It eventually falls to Adam to break the news to his mum, but she barely raises an eyebrow, as she has her mind on far bigger concerns.
