the whole way back to the village to be with Debbie. Unfortunately, he was intercepted by rageaholic Cain, who promptly clocked him one, resulting in a fatal blow. Just to ensure everyone thought Joe was a goner, writers had him hop his head off a nearby rock. Graham was quick to check his ward’s pulse and informed Cain he had just killed Debbie’s husband-to-be. Gibbering in disbelief, the usually stone-cold Dingle took Graham’s word for it and was only too happy to have him “take care of the body”. It doesn’t take a genius to deduce Joe is probably still alive. I mean, everyone’s coming back from the dead lately; Alfie Moon and Mel Owen being just two that spring to mind. The question really is, when will Joe come back from the dead? And will Debbie have anything to do with her dad ever again — considering she finds out his big secret this week.
After she is asked to identify a body, Cain can’t handle her heartache anymore and finally reveals that he killed Joe. Debbie, in a perpetual state of distress, is horrified further to learn Graham was also involved. As Cain tries to explain what happened, Debbie flees her father. When she then cops Moira knew also, Cain snaps, hurling Moira against a wall. Can the two women in his life ever forgive him now?
