Well, this happened sooner than we expected...

As if being the victim of a hit and run was not enough for Moira Barton (Natalie J.Robb) to deal with in recent months in Emmerdale, now she has to face her past head-on with the arrival of her brother, Mackenzie (Lawerence Robb).


We suspected that a clash between the newcomer and Cain Dingle (Jeff Hordley) was on the cards but even we are surprised at how quickly it happens- and how violent things get between the two when it does occur.

Moria decides that she needs to confront her past and tells Mackenzie that they need to talk and he needs to listen to what she has to say, but the chat does not go well and she is left alone, in tears, to wonder whether the pair will ever have a healthy relationship.

Always in protective mode, Cain later sees Mackenzie and he wastes no time in confronting him and as the two square up to each other, Cain issues a dark threat: if he sees him in the village again then he will be exiting it in a coffin.


When Cain returns home and vents about Mackenzie, Moria cannot deal with it and snaps, ordering him to leave. As a disgruntled Cain does just that, Moira realises that she may have just damaged another relationship. Will things get easier for Moira, and will she and Mackenzie find a way to move on from their murky past?

As for that hit and run, Jamie Tate (Alexander Lincoln) was the man responsible for putting her in the hospital and while he did his best to keep the secret, it was soon exposed thanks to some scheming from Belle Dingle (Eden Taylor Draper).

Quite the schemer himself, Jamie has twisted the events to make Belle look like the guilty party, with Nate Robinson (Jurell Carter) also in the firing line. Whether the pair can prove their innocence and get Jamie sent down remains to be seen.
