However, things took a dramatic turn in recent weeks after Cain dramatically shot Nate by accident.
It came after Will Taylor’s (Dean Andrews) past began to unravel when his young grandson, Lucas, found a gun in the house.
A worried Harriet quickly came up with a plot to get rid of the weapon as she passed it to ex-lover Cain Dingle, but it soon became clear it had fallen into the wrong hands.
When Cain’s estranged wife Moira Barton (Natalie J Robb) suspected she had rustlers on the farm, Cain came to her defence as he revealed he had a gun.
He shot Nate, believing it was someone breaking into the farm, which left him lying in hospital.
