Emmerdale Spoilers: Cain Dingle Makes Shocking Decision Over His Mother Faith’s Death
WHILE his sister Chas is beside herself, Cain Dingle remains seemingly indifferent to Faith’s cancer.
But the Emmerdale tough guy softens up next week and gradually changes his mind.
Soap fans know all too well how strained Cain’s (played by Jeff Hordley) relationship with his mother Faith (Sally Dexter) has been, despite his many attempts to bridge a gap.
He showed no change in his behavior after Faith announced she was battling cancer again at an explosive birthday party at the Woolpack.
Cain’s loved ones, including his sister Chas (Lucy Pargeter) and his wife Moira (Natalie J. Robb) are increasingly desperate to make amends with Faith – and time is running out.
Next week, Faith is due for a CT scan and Moira encourages Cain to go with her but, instead, he chooses to have a drink at the pub, infuriating Chas who catches him in the act.
Faith attends her date without her son’s support and Moira’s heart breaks for her, realizing that Cain failed to intervene.
The farmer begs him to change and be there for Faith.
Cain finally seems to get the memo when, the next day, there’s a slight thaw from him.
He hands Faith a card from his four-year-old son Isaac, and later endeavors to talk to her.
Moira is happy to see them talking but Cain’s efforts aren’t convincing enough for Chas.
The Woolpack bar manager is later devastated when she finds out her mother’s cancer has spread during an oncology appointment she attends with Faith.
As her days are clearly limited, Chas hopes that Faith will decide to continue her chemotherapy treatment, but her mother remains firm in her decision to accept her fate and completely refuses chemo.
Overwhelmed and instead of going to see Al Chapman to forget her problems, Chas becomes inflamed by Cain’s apparent indifference to Faith’s decision to stop her treatment.
She is unaware that Cain is keeping his feelings for him, reeling from the news as he is in a field.
