Graham Foster is a man seriously on the edge – with Kim Tate barking orders at him from prison, the weight of Joes death overwhelming him and Cain Dingle watching his every move, something is going to give in Emmerdale soon.
So its probably the last thing he needs for the formidable Robert Sugden to come and pick a fight too. Given Roberts own penchant for scheming, could he be Grahams unexpected downfall?
Robert is frustrated by the absence of Joe from the firm and its clear that Grahams focus is anywhere but the haulage business. As Nicola King also expresses her own dismay at the situation, the pair start to hatch a plan which would see them seize control.
Devastated by the hand he had in the demise of Joe, Graham is trying to numb his pain and has fallen under the destructive spell of his alcoholism. So when Robert and Nicola find him drunk, they decide to take advantage of the situation and persuade him to sign the paperwork which could see him lose any control in the business.
But considering that Graham recently promised Kim hed be no pushover to their enemies, could Robert and Nicola be playing a dangerous game? Are they underestimating what Graham is capable of or might Graham meet his match in Robert?
Given how fragile Graham is right now, might Robert getting one over on him be what tips him over the edge?
