But how will Cain handle being in the company of his mum Faith, his enemy No. 1, who's organised the event for Sarah? 

Cain has made it clear to Faith that he's not going to forgive her wrongs nor their past.

Even the recent news that Faith's cancer might have returned did nothing to soften Cain's zero-tolerance policy. While his sister Chas started to panic about their mum, Cain sat firmly on the fence and informed Faith he'd only react once the test results were back.

When Faith learns her estranged son Cain is coming along to the HOP, she makes a decision about what she's going to say… But is Faith about to make a major mistake in judgement where tricky Cain is concerned?
