There’s nothing like a near-death experience to bring two people closer together – and so it’s proven with Emmerdale’s Cain and Harriet in tonight’s double bill of the ITV soap.
With Harriet now looking to be out of danger following her stabbing by a local drug dealer, Cain made sure he was by her bedside at the moment she came round following her operation.
“Why are you here?” asked the injured vicar before Cain clasped her hand and replied, “Why do you think?”
His tender response was in stark contract to his off-hand dismissal of Harriet prior to her stabbing, when it seemed that he didn’t want to pursue a relationship with her.
Cain’s new-found sense of commitment will no doubt cheer #Charriet fans who’d been hoping for a reconciliation between the two characters. But it’ll also come as a blow to #Coira devotees who are rooting for Cain and Moira to get back together at some point.
At the end of this evening’s episode, Moira was looking the picture of rejection, having saved Ross from being tipped out of a window by Cain, only to later learn that her ex-husband had definitely moved on when it came to his relationships.
So is Moira destined to remain the outsider looking longingly on while the love of her life is with another woman? Will Cain really make a go of things with Harriet? Or do we feel that it’s only a matter of time before Cain and Moira end up back in each other’s arms?
