Emmerdale viewers will know that Ross (played by Michael Parr) was attacked with corrosive acid shortly after exiting Joe Tate’s (Ned Porteous) car last week.
Prior to the grim incident, Debbie (Charley Webb) had told Simon McManus (Liam Ainsworth) to “wipe the smile” off Joe’s face.
However, the drug dealer accidentally targeted the wrong person and chucked the acid over Ross as he left Joe’s vehicle.
A devastated Debbie was distraught when she found out what happened, but chose to remain silent about the part she played in Ross’ attack.
In an upcoming episode, Debbie’s dad, Cain (Jeff Hordley), will try to persuade her to visit Ross in hospital but given the guilt she feels, she will find it difficult to see him.
Suddenly, Graham (Andrew Scarborough) will pop up at their house and tell them he knows they were involved in Ross’ attack.
Graham is certain Debbie played a part in the debacle as she had sworn to take Joe down after he took over Home Farm.
Debbie and Cain both deny they had anything to do with what happened to Ross but Graham is not buying it.
Last week, Debbie confessed to Cain that she was involved in Ross’ attack after being quizzed by her father.
Shortly after two police officers questioned Cain about the horrific crime, he headed to the Woolpack pub to find his daughter sitting on the stairs in tears.
As Cain interrogated Debbie she finally revealed the truth about what happened, sobbing: “I didn’t know he was gonna use acid.”
With a worried expression on his face, Cain replied: “Who’s he, Simon?”
As tears streamed down her face, Debbie appeared to confirm his answer, saying: “Dad, I didn’t know this was gonna happen, I swear to you.”
Meanwhile, a devastated Ross broke down in tears in hospital after finding out he may be permanently scarred for life.
Now, Cain knows the truth about what happened to his former employee, he must decide whether to protect his daughter, or come clean to the police. What will he decide?
