The power struggle between Cain Dingle and Robert Sugden looks set to get intense next week, as these new pictures released by ITV highlight.
Monday’s episode of Emmerdale will see Robert attempt to blackmail Cain over his recent kiss with Chrissie, but by Thursday, it’s Cain who’ll hold all the cards.
After bundling Robert into the boot of a car, Aaron ends up making a big admission – and it’s information that Cain can certainly use to his own advantage.
“It’s like a lightbulb moment because he knows that he can now gain the upper hand,” says Jeff Hordley, who plays Cain. “He has something on Robert, which he can throw in his face, which obviously he does.”
The episodes mark the return of the more dangerous side to Cain’s personality after a couple of years of him being something of a reformed character.
“You will see glimpses of the old Cain because he has to defend his corner. And to do that he has to revert to old tactics,” adds Hordley. “At the time, everything is telling him that he’s just like the person he once was. So he starts thinking, ‘Well, if you think that, then I will be.'”
