Caleb Miligan, a recent addition to Emmerdale, may end up betraying the Dingle family after learning that his half-brother Cain has been telling him lies for 30 years.
Jeff Hordley’s portrayal of Emmerdale bad boy Cain Dingle is currently incarcerated for the murder of Michael Wildman’s character Al Chapman, which he did not commit. The mechanic, who is guilty of shooting Al, is adamant about defending his son Kyle Winchester (Huey Quinn). After visiting him in prison on Christmas Day, Cain’s half-brother Caleb (Will Ash) will cause him to experience flashbacks in upcoming scenes.
Since Caleb informed Cain that their mother Faith (Sally Dexter) had passed away 30 years prior, Cain has little faith in him.
But it wasn’t until recently that Caleb realized Cain had been lying to him the entire time.
Will spoke with thesuns.info and other media about his plot and whether Caleb is seeking revenge on Cain: “He arrives with a really dark and torturous past, having been taken into care as a young child.
“He eventually came across Cain when he was 16 and tried to get in touch with his family. Cain informed him that his mother had passed away and advised him to stay away from them.
He therefore enters it with a great deal of resentment and anger.
Later on, he added: “Although he has a vendetta against him, initially when he comes in, he wants to connect with his family.
Even though there is a kind of simmering resentment and bitterness, he wants to have a relationship with Cain and Chas in order to connect with them.
Although the mechanic wants to establish some sort of connection with Cain and Chas (Lucy Pargeter), he cautions his sibling to avoid his family.
Nevertheless, Caleb disregards Cain’s pleading and ultimately confesses to Chas.
The newcomer tries to assist the Dingle family after realizing everything they are going through.
Could Caleb, though, end up betraying the Dingle family in order to exact revenge on his brother?
The actor described Caleb as being “very, very kind of charming and open and just wanting to make a connection with his family because they’re going through quite a lot.”
“He comes in and kind of really helps them deal with all that they’re dealing with.
“But you can’t help but think there is something else going on.”
When Caleb arrives in the village, viewers will also be treated to a backlash episode which shows the trio as children.
“You get to see a young Cain and Caleb when they first meet,” the Cain Dingle star continued.
“And the reason he says his mother is dead is because he used telling people that she passed away as a coping mechanism after his mother let him down.
And since that is how he handles it, that is why he told Caleb what he did.
Regarding Cain and Caleb’s relationship, Jeff continued: “There is a relationship between Cain and him.
Although he doesn’t like it, it’s clear that he also finds something to connect with.
