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

TV Times - - Contents -

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?

Un­sta­ble: Does Moira want to give up son Isaac? Grandma: Faith

wants to get Isaac reg­is­tered
