Episode: 3950 - Sunday 16th January 2005
Charity demands the truth from Cain when he returns to the village

ITV1 Network 7:00 PM to 7:30 PM

Review :-

Cain kicks off at Charity when she accuses him of busting up her wedding.

No news from the TV appeal leaves Turner devastated.

Pearl panics about moving home.


There is a showdown in the Woolpack between the Kings and the Dingles when Cain (Jeff Hordley) shows his face for the first time since Tom (Ken Farrington) and Charity’s (Emma Atkins) wedding.

Charity demands that Cain tell Tom the truth behind the photos of them kissing, but when he has the audacity to deny everything, an enraged Charity launches herself at him, leaving Zak (Steve Halliwell) and Matthew (Matt Healy) with little choice but to intervene.

Later on, Debbie (Charley Webb) is torn between her mother and her father as Cain desperately pleads his innocence. Knowing that both her parents have lied to her in the past, who will she believe?

Turner (Richard Thorp) receives information about another sighting of Shelly (Carolyn Pickles) but is reluctant to get his hopes up as he fears it may be a hoax. The police later warn Turner that the TV appeal could have damaged the case against Steph (Lorraine Chase) leaving him utterly deflated.

Elsewhere, Pearl (Meg Johnson) is devastated when she hears that Tom has put an offer in for the house and the realization sinks in that her days in the village could be numbered.

ITV Update

We are family Sun, 7.00pm, 16th Jan

PLEASE NOTE All Opinions expressed in this update are those of the ITV visual updater and not of this site's or necessarily ITV's or Emmerdale's.

Charity is going nuts living back in the Dingle household… Shadrach has used Noah’s buggy to move wood and Chas is asking for her contribution to the weekly pot. Charity can’t wait for Cain to return so she can ‘kill him for driving me back to this madhouse’.
If yesterday’s flirting wasn’t enough, Chas has gone back for more cheesy lines from Denzel the Copper. He offers her a ride to the village in his police car, he knows how to treat a lady you see. She’s lucky not to get spotted by DI Keysell, who’s looking particularly glum today. More of that later...
Everyone seems to be talking about Turner’s television appearance the previous day. Viv comes up with her usual candid offering: ‘the camera really does put the pounds on you’. Ah, Viv, we can always rely on you to make people feel better. Turner, meanwhile, is disappointed Shelly has not been in touch.
After more bickering, the Dingles decide it would be a good idea to head to the Woolpack for a drink. And guess which family is also in there? Yep, the Kings… Fight! Fight! Fight!
It’s only when Cain saunters in that the place erupts, or rather Charity does. She storms up to him and orders him to tell Tom that their kiss was a set-up. He denies everything and amid shouts of ‘pack of lies’ and ‘that scheming cow’ Charity lunges at Cain.
Back at the farm, Charity tells Cain that he’s ruined her life. Zak and Lisa try it get to the bottom if it and ask Cain for his side of the story. He denies that Sadie set Charity up and claims he was trying to get back with her! Cue more shouting between the former lovers.
After the screaming, Edna and Pearl’s soft voices are a welcome relief. Pearl admits that she has been talking potential buyers off Jacob's Fold. But then Len walks in with a huge smile on his face telling them that Tom King has made an offer on the house. Poor Pearl.
Meanwhile, Zak and Lisa don’t know whether to believe Charity or Cain, ‘I can’t trust either of them’, says Zak. He adds, incisively, ‘they can’t live together, but they can’t live apart either’, no kidding, Zak!
Finally alone, Cain admits to Charity that Sadie paid him ’enough’ to set her up. She questions whether he would sell Debbie out as well, but he tells her to leave Debbie out of it. He then informs Charity that she can't do anything because it's her word against his.
Charity and Cain both try to convince Debbie of their stories, but she’s not interested and instead asks her parents to think about her for a change, ‘most people have normal parents’, she wails. Cain tells her that he just wanted to give the family one last try, Charity just raises her eyebrows in disbelief.
Meanwhile, DI Keysell tells Turner that he’s severely jeopardised the case by appealing on television for Shelly - the victim of a murder trial - to come home. ‘If her killer walks free from that court we will have both let Shelly down,’ he tells a now glum-looking Turner.
