Zak calls time on Cain with a big gesture
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
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
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.

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
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!
