Emmerdale will soon be welcoming Kim Tate (played by Claire King) back into the village, but it seems she won’t get the friendly reception she anticipates from all the residents.
It comes as the iconic character is set to make a regular appearance on the soap following her cameo back in October when viewers saw her get pushed off a balcony and then return to prison after breaking her parole.
Whilst she was only in the Dales for a week, she already made an enemy in Faith Dingle (Sally Dexter) and since her initial comeback, it seems the rest of the Dingle are going to go head to head with the villain.
It comes after tonight’s episode which saw Charity Dingle (Emma Atkins) find out about Cain Dingle’s (Jeff Hurdle) murder confession.
During a tense conversation with Debbie Dingle (Charley Webb), she found out the truth behind the police accusations.
“Thought maybe could have a little chat whilst the kids aren’t here,” Charity began as she walked through the door but her daughter snapped back: “About?”
“I know you’re hiding something. You have been fobbing me off about this for days, but not anymore babe, because I want answers,” the pub landlady explained.
And Debbie replied: “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
“Ah ok, so I’m just seeing things am I? i am picking up on vibes that don’t even exist? Like Faith having a pop at Matty [Barton] (Ash Palmisciano) and then him bricking himself when I ask what’s going on?”
But Debbie had had enough and tried to stop the conversation going any further, she said: “You just need to leave this ok?”
“No, well I can’t, because I know you better than you think I do and I know something’s going on between you and your dad.
“Please let me in,” Charity begged and added: “I can see that you are hurting and all I want to do is help!”
“You can’t help. Nobody can help ok?” The mechanic explained. “Ok, if this is about your dad don’t worry, he can handle the police. They can hurl accusations at him until they’re blue in the face,” her mother remarked.
And following this Debbie snapped and began screaming, tears running down her face. “But what if this is just not accusations? What if all of this is true, have you ever thought about that?”
Subsequently, Charity just stood there, mouth wide open trying to digest what Debbie had just revealed. “You can’t be seriously saying that your dad killed Joe [Tate] (Ned Porteous)?” She asked
“Now do you see why I don’t want to talk about this?” Debbie concluded.
Charity is now the sixth person to find out about Cain’s predicament, and apart from Graham Foster (Andrew Scarborough) she is the next Dingle to realise what her family member has done. But does this for to Cain’s advantage?
Viewers are pretty certain Cain’s punch did not kill Joe, instead, the scene that followed the evening of the Masquerade Ball in October highly suggests Graham was responsible for the businessman to disappear, dead or alive.
However, Graham is letting Cain, and all the Dingle’s believe it was the bad boy who ended his son-in-law-to-be’s life.
With Kim’s return to screen imminent, Graham has been making preparations with regards to the Home Farm estate and her comeback will spark interest around the charity event last autumn and her involvement with Joe going missing.
However, no matter how much she denies her involvement, she ordered Graham to get rid of Joe.
Considering she is Joe’s only family in the village (apart from Noah) many of the Dingles, including Kim’s new rival Faith are going to question her from every angle.
Between them, will they be able to clear Cain’s name and prove his innocence?
