LIFE in the Dales becomes quieter for Caleb Milligan after his true motives were finally rumbled.

The Emmerdale schemer takes action to help his son Nicky settle into the Yorkshire village as he faces a chilling threat.

Caleb’s motives were rumbled

He embarked his son Nicky on his plan

But Kim Tate outsmarted him

Caleb (played by Will Ash) revealed that he was Frank Tate’s illegitimate son after Kim Tate figured out he’d been up to no good.

Determined to get what he firmly believes he’s due, Caleb vowed he would make Kim pay but his own son Nicky Milligan (Lewis Cope) grew tired of him.

Nicky previously turned his back on Caleb by exposing him to Gabby Thomas after he realised he was unable to follow through with their plan.

And in a shocking twist, the hunk pushed his own father off a woodland ridge out of anger, nearly killing him.

But in scenes airing next week on ITV, Caleb and Nicky don’t allow the past to have a holder over them and the former decides it’s time he tried to fix things.

It all begins with Gabby Thomas (Rosie Bentham) who is frustrated to discover Nicky’s plans to continue living in the village with Caleb.

Brave-faced, she issues Nicky a warning and Caleb is prompted into action.

Caleb wishes he could fix things for his son who is still upset regarding his relationship being over with Ally.

A little while later, Caleb extends an olive branch to his son by presenting him with a present.

Nicky lets his defences drop, but will it last?

Bonding with his son Caleb promises that time will help Nicky heal and grow.

However, will time help the father-son duo fix things after their troubled past?

Or has their bond been broken beyond repair?

More importantly – will they ever be able to fit in the Dales?

Emmerdale airs weeknights from 7.30pm on ITV.
