Debbie receives a text from Joe
SHE FINALLY GETS WORD FROM JOE…
There’s more misery for Debbie this week, as her financial and legal troubles mount – and she finally receives word from runaway groom Joe.
Debbie has been living a nightmare since her husbandto-be failed to show up to their hospital nuptials, and the police arrested her for ordering Ross’ acid attack. Worse still, she’s had to watch from afar as her ill daughter Sarah recovers from a heart transplant. So, although Debbie is out on bail and trying to rebuild her life, she’s in turmoil. Then she gets a text from Joe that simply says, ‘I’m sorry’.
“This is going to come as a surprise to viewers since it looked as though Joe was six feet under,” muses our Dales insider. “The last we saw, his lifeless body was in Graham’s boot, and the next thing we knew, Joe’s former right-hand man was crying buckets after seemingly killing him. Debbie doesn’t know any of this – she just thinks Joe abandoned her and the kids. So to receive such a pathetic apology doesn’t go down at all well.”
Seeing Debbie’s misery is hell on earth for her dad Cain, especially as he believes he is responsible for Joe’s death. And it’s not just Debbie’s heartbreak that’s a concern – her bills are mounting, and she has no way to pay them. Cain and Moira try to step in, offering her work at the garage, but they’re in bits when she tearfully asks them if they will take in Sarah and Jack if the worst happens and she’s sent to prison.
“Debbie trusts no one more than her dad, which makes Cain’s secret even harder to bear,” says our spy. “She had a life full of happiness ahead of her with Joe, despite his deception over the true owner of Home
Farm, and Cain feels as if he took it all away.
Joe’s pathetic apology doesn’t go down at all well with Debbie…”
If she finds out what he did, their relationship will be completely destroyed.”
There’s one ray of hope for Debbie, though, when doctors tell her that Sarah’s new heart is responding well. Debbie’s elated, but she’s later forced to tell Sarah that she could be facing years inside. Charity tries to reassure her, yet Debbie feels hopeless. Then she gets the message from
Joe. Did he write the text, or is somebody else behind it?
