When Graham Foster goes off the rails and falls off the wagon, you just know there is carnage and destruction ahead in Emmerdale and as his guilt and torment over the death of Joe Tate overwhelms him, it could be Cain Dingle who takes the fall.
Graham has previously told Cain to trust him after making him believe that he was the one who killed Joe. Cain had thumped Joe into a rock but he actually survived, only for Graham to finish off the man he saw as a son on the orders of the now incarcerated Kim.
Cain is trying to move past the thought of being a murderer and he knows that the truth of what happened to Joe would destroy his daughter Debbie. But Graham isnt holding it together as much as he previously seemed to be and after sending Debbie a text from Joes phone, he has increased her suspicions that something dodgy is afoot.
Cain is horrified when he sees Debbie laying into Graham over the text and intervenes before uncomfortable truths come to light but with Graham falling apart and hitting the booze harder than ever, it seems he is on a path to self destruction and may not care who he takes down with him.
Blaming Cain and Debbie partially foe the situation Joe ended up in, could Graham be set to wreak revenge by telling Debbie that Cain killed Joe – and ripping apart their relationship forever?
Show boss Jane Hudson recently warned of episodes that would see two Dingle family members in potentially their worst situation yet as their relationship may be irreparable so will an unhinged Graham be the catalyst for Debbies world falling apart?
He certainly has the opportunity as Debbie approaches him on the pretense of trying to help him sort his head out – but in reality, all she wants is answers about Joe.
Will she get them – and will they ruin her life?
