As Cain grabs a length of metal piping, Sam panics that Cain is about to do something he will regret.

Realising that Cain won't listen to him, Sam tracks down Moira and begs her to help, knowing that she will have more luck getting through to him.

Moira to the rescue 

Despite being upset after having just got her decree nisi though for their divorce, Moira agrees to help and talks to Cain at the Dingle barn.

However, as Moira reminds Cain about how he felt after the drama with Joe Tate, the doors to the barn slam shut and the pair are locked inside.

What Moira and Cain don't realise is that Mackenzie is the one who has trapped them in the barn, putting an end to Cain's plans to kill Jamie for the time being.

Instead, Moira uses the chance to talk to her soon-to-be ex husband about their relationship, begging him to forgive her for the affair with Nate.

But with the pain of what she did still hurting, Cain reminds Moira that she broke his heart.
