Moira can’t cope any more and dumps her baby on son Adam Viewers will have an inkling of what went on between Cain and Faith
Moira’s in a bit of a state at the moment and it appears that the only person who can get through to her is Cain, who is thrilled when Moira agrees to let him spend some time with his son – it won’t be long before he is utterly besotted with the little lad.
But after Cain has gone and Moira is left alone with Isaac, she’s really struggling to bond with the child and is slowly cracking up.
She needs to keep it together as it’s Isaac’s christening this week and family and friends will gather to celebrate. Faith, the baby’s grandma, then lures Cain round
to Butler’s in a bid to get him to register the birth with Moira.
On the day of the christening,
Moira is on edge. She snaps at Isaac when he cries during the ceremony and it’s obvious that she’s not coping at all. When she then disappears without so much as a ‘goodbye’, her friends and family are deeply worried.
She turns up in the middle of Victoria and Adam’s adoption
meeting and declares that they should look after Isaac. She looks deranged and Adam fears she may have cost him the chance to adopt.
Later, Faith tells Cain that there is something seriously wrong with Moira. He jumps into the car, and when he realises it’s a trick, some painful memories of his own childhood flood back.
‘She drives to his childhood home,’ explains Sally Dexter, who plays Faith. ‘It gives them a chance to show that they love each other. It’s the first time viewers will have an inkling of what went on between Cain and Faith and why their relationship is the way it is.’
Will the experience give Cain food for thought when it comes to Isaac? And will it finally heal the rift between Faith and Cain?
