Debbie hears the truth about Joe
EMOTIONS RUN HIGH AS DEBBIE FINDS OUT THAT JOE IS DEAD…
Cain’s world is set to crumble this week, when he confesses to daughter Debbie that he killed her fiancé Joe. As the knowledge that her former husband-to-be is dead – and at her father’s hands – starts sinking in, it’s a horrific time for Debbie.
Heartbroken by the fact that his relationship with his adored girl will never be the same again, Cain can barely cope with the nightmare of his predicament. And after scared Debbie reels while in her dad’s presence, Cain’s wife Moira finds herself on the receiving end of a violent outburst…
“What a hideous state of affairs!” wails our Emmerdale spy. “Cain has been to hell and back since Joe died, with his conscience killing him. But the worst thing is that he’s not the murderer – Graham is! Yet here he is, forced to tell his daughter that her fiancé is dead because of him. Debbie is devastated – and Cain is driven to the very edge.”
It’s after Debbie is asked to identify a body that this sorry situation begins to unravel. When Debbie bottles the grisly task at the last minute, Cain offers to take her place. But while the body isn’t Joe’s, the anxious moment causes poor Debbie to break down and admit to her dad that she can’t move on without Joe. And so Cain is forced to come clean.
“He just can’t live with the burden of his horrible secret any more,” sighs our sneak. “Of course, Debbie is knocked for six by what her father is telling her, and flees in shock. While Cain is plunged into even deeper despair, his daughter seeks out the counsel of Graham, the man who really did kill her beloved Joe!”
However, as Debbie tells Graham that Joe is dead, Joe’s sinister sidekick is stunned, and demands to be told how Debbie knows. Afterwards, he’s straight on the phone to Cain, who storms into Home Farm – where Debbie is terrified at just the sight of him.
Worse is to come, though, as Cain reveals that Graham was also involved in Joe’s death – but Debbie is too scared to stay and hear him out. The following day, after Debbie finds out that Moira also knew what Cain had done, Cain can take no more, and he snaps.
“Cain has lost all reason, although there can be no excuse for how violently he launches himself at Moira,” says our source. “She knows
Cain can’t live with the burden of his horrible secret any more…”
better than anyone just what her husband has been enduring these past few weeks – and she’d go to the ends of the earth in order to protect him. She’s his ultimate ally, but as he loses his rag and the red mist descends, raging Cain is incapable of sparing a thought for his long-suffering wife…”
Can either of the most precious women in Cain’s life manage to forgive him for his sins – or are his days of being a much-loved dad and husband well and truly over?
