Dark se­cret!

Baby Isaac’s ar­rival pushes par­ents Cain and Moira to bat­tle their demons

What's on TV - - Soap Week -

Un­ex­pected par­ent­hood isn’t go­ing well for Cain. The ar­rival of the baby has made things tricky with Har­riet and seen Moira re­ject his re­cent at­tempt to rekin­dle their love. And on top of all that, Cain’s about to get a stark look at his past, leav­ing him won­der­ing about Isaac’s fu­ture…

As Cain’s ex Moira con­tin­ues to strug­gle with sleep­less nights and a cry­ing, needy new­born, wor­ried gran Faith is push­ing Cain to get in­volved. With the chris­ten­ing loom­ing, Cain ar­rives, on his mum’s in­sis­tence, to help Moira make some de­ci­sions.

The farmer limply agrees to Vic­to­ria and Adam be­ing the god­par­ents, but Moira is still numb to her own child. Later, as the ser­vice takes place, Moira’s had a sleep­less night. It’s clear she’s not coping, and folk worry fur­ther when she sud­denly dis­ap­pears. But then Moira bursts in on Adam’s meet­ing with an adop­tion of­fi­cer and says her son and wife Vic­to­ria should look af­ter her child! How will Cain re­act to Moira’s bomb­shell sug­ges­tion?

Bad mem­o­ries

Now well aware Moira isn’t coping, Cain is pow­er­less to re­sist when Faith tells him his ex needs him at But­ler’s again. ‘Cain gets in the car, but Faith then drives him to the house where he grew up!’ says Jeff Hord­ley, who plays him. ‘These ghosts from the past come back. There’s a flash­back to the 1980s. A young cast plays us.’

It’s no se­cret that nei­ther Cain nor his sis­ter Chas have any re­spect for their mother. But what was their child­hood like? As Faith takes Cain on a trip down mem­ory lane, un­earthing dark se­crets from his past, will the jolt push him to step up for Isaac?
