This moment isn’t just my favourite scene of this week, but might just be one of my favourite scenes of Emmerdale this year. Between the high tension of Bails’ trial, Charity took a breather outside and was given a pep talk by Cain in a moment that was steeped in character and history and even managed to move me to tears. Although their days of being a couple are long gone, there’s a complicated history behind their interactions which is palpable in the actors’ chemistry and in this moment you could really grasp the journeys they’ve taken to get to this settled place. We’ve lived through it, just as the characters have, and this kind of reflection was a beautiful moment, quietly powerful. I found Cain’s reassurance that it wasn’t luck that Charity had a lot to be thankful for, but through her own progress, especially moving. His encouragement that she should be proud was an uplifting moment for her and the audience. Emmerdale at its finest.
