Episode: 4,011 - Wednesday 30th March 2005
Zak calls time on Cain with a big gesture

ITV1 Network 7:00 PM to 7:30 PM


Cain’s (Jeff Hordley) efforts to make a new start with Debbie (Charley Webb) backfire when he overreacts to Andy’s (Kelvin Fletcher) concern for her at a chance meeting in town. At the end of her tether with Cain, Debbie makes it clear that she wants nothing more to do with her father and in an uncontrollable rage Cain viciously attacks his daughter.

Appalled by Cain’s behaviour, Zak (Steve Halliwell) sets fire to his caravan and tells him to leave or he’ll do the same to his car.

Despite his pleading, Debbie refuses to intervene and Cain is forced to leave.

Elsewhere, Jimmy (Nick Miles) goes to his mother’s grave and has a heart-to-heart with Tom (Ken Farrington) who is also visiting. The father and son are brought closer together, paving the way for Jimmy to be welcomed back into the King family.


ITV Update

Too hot to handle Weds, 7.00pm, 30th Mar

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

Cain attempts to make things up with Debbie by inviting her to the cinema. She eventually agrees, but when they stop off at the Post Office they bump into Andy and Libby. The farmer asks her if she’s ok and Cain twigs that the two did in fact meet up yesterday, despite Debbie denying it. He forces her into his car and drives her home. Good start there Cain.

Back home and Debbie makes to go upstairs to her room, but Cain makes her sit at the table, ‘I want you where I can see you from now on.’ Zak and Lisa turn up and Cain tells them she was with Andy the previous day and adds, ‘You’re a lying, manipulative little cow who’s been getting her own way for far too long.’ She tells Lisa and Zak that she’s not staying in the same house as her dad, ‘Either he goes, or I do.’

It seems she means what she says for she later emerges with a bag packed ready to catch the bus. Cain tells her she’s not going and when she ignores him he pushes her to the floor. Zak is horrified at his behaviour and tells him to leave. ‘Make me,’ comes the stern reply. ‘Ok,’ says Zak, as he pigs up some matches and heads outside to set fire to Cain’s caravan!

Cain thinks he’s bluffing, even after Zak has poured the petrol around the caravan. But Zak means it and promptly sets fire to it! Zak repeats to Cain that he wants him gone, ‘You only care about yourself. The only reason we’ve put up with you is because of Debbie.’ Cain appeals to Debbie, but she wants him gone even more than Zak does. So, having just said goodbye to her mother, Cain now gets in his car and drives off as the tears roll down the poor girl's face.

Meanwhile, Libby is furious with Andy for not telling Debbie to stay away. He tells her that he did and was just checking she was ok. But Miss High Horse here tells him: ‘It’s bad enough slumbing it with a farm boy, but having to compete for his affections with a girl in gym slips, I’ll be drummed out of the tennis club.’ She declares that she’d rather be with Max to save herself the humiliation.

Elsewhere, and Tom visits his wife’s grave to wish her a happy anniversary. ‘I only wish you were still here to bang a few heads together,’ he tells her. To his surprise, Jimmy arrives with flowers to mark the occasion. They both agree that they’ve let her down and it seems Tom is beginning to soften towards his eldest son.

Later on that evening and th epoker game has kicked off. It’s not long before Terry loses the £60 that he went with. But Matthew persuades him to stay and lends him another £120, which he also loses! They head off to the Woolpack for a drink, but Matthew can’t resist saying to Terry, ‘A word of advice for the next time you play, don’t get so excited, I could see right through you.’ How to make a man feel small, hey Matthew!

As the boys saunter into the pub, the King brothers are confused with the behaviour of Tom, until they realise the date. When they remember they join Tom and reminisce about their mother, until Jimmy walks in. ‘I see Mike Tyson is still on the loose,’ Matthew says aloud. ‘Got any more deals you want me to close?’ he asks. Jimmy replies, ‘Are you looking for another smack?’ Tom breaks it up, before reminding Matthew that he’s not indispensable.

Also in the pub are the two new gals, Libby and Tamsin, who join Katie and Robert for a drink. Tamsin is moaning about her new job, ‘I don’t need a job, I need a nice young man with lots of money to keep me in the manner to which I am accustomed.’ They think she’s joking… it seems we needn’t mourn the loss of Charity and Chloe for long, step up the new gold-digger!
