Caleb Miligan covered for Will Taylor during Friday night’s Emmerdale, and fans have questioned the newcomer’s motives after the duo’s recent feud.
Emmerdale fans have been suspicious of Caleb Miligan (played by Will Ash) ever since he arrived in the village to reconnect with his family. The newcomer has certainly ruffled a few feathers and more recently, he has rubbed Will Taylor (Dean Andrews) up the wrong way. Will didn’t like the way Caleb was making himself comfortable at Home Farm, but following Friday night’s episode, it looks like Will owes his rival a favour.
Caleb ended up covering for Will, telling an angry Kim Tate (Claire King) that it was his fault her horse Apollo escaped from the stable.
When in fact, it was the newcomer who rescued the horse before Kim arrived back from her business trip.
The pair had agreed to keep it a secret until Lydia Dingle (Karen Blick) let slip what really happened.
When Kim arrived home, it seemed she was ready for a row with Will, until Caleb intervened.
“We have had the vet check Apollo over and he’s absolutely fine,” Will insisted.
Kim argued back: “Well how do I know that’s true? With you turning into a pathological liar while I’ve been away.”
“One small fib” Will continued. “To save you any unnecessary worry.”
Kim wasn’t having any of it as she replied: “Trying to cover your own backs. You lied to me, albeit by omission.”
Caleb added, taking the blame for Will, “It was only because I asked him to.
“I asked him to cover up because I was to blame for the horse escaping.
“He knew how much this endeavor meant to me, but he didn’t want to keep it from you.
“To us both, of course. Therefore, it was more of a practical oversight.”
He added: “Me and your husband, we are best mates now, so that’s a positive.”
Following Friday’s instalment, fans took to social media to share their thoughts on Caleb and Kim’s storyline.
While many believe Caleb wants to destroy Kim, others believe they will start dating.
The hashtag #emmerdale was used by Twitter user @Bu71954521Tracy.
Tweeted Ryan Glendenning: “Caleb and Kim are becoming too intimate, too quickly. #Emmerdale: He can’t be trusted.”
“#Emmerdale now Will owes creepy Caleb a favor,” Chris P continued. I’ll call on you one day to repay that favor. (sic)
Jehan continued, “what TF? Why has Caleb accepted responsibility for the horse’s escape, and why didn’t Will inform Kim that it was Cain? weird.” (sic)
“Oh, Caleb defending Will!? There is a change now… But what is he doing? A user questioned @TwellyWatcher about “#Emmerdale.”
As commenter @Rosepetal98_ pointed out: “#Caleb, the slippery toad, will use this against #Will in the long run! Kim #Emerdale
