As announced last month, Cain (Jeff Hordley) gets his comeuppance next week as one of his enemies carries out a shocking act of revenge before leaving him for dead.
The latest sneak peek at the storyline shows that Cain fights for his life in hospital after the attack, leaving viewers to wonder whether he will pull through.
Meanwhile, Jai Sharma (Chris Bisson) and Charity Tate (Emma Atkins) are soon arrested on suspicion of Cain's attempted murder and put into cells - but are they guilty?
As well as Jai and Charity, Emmerdale chiefs have named John and Moira Barton (James Thornton and Natalie J Robb), Amy Wyatt (Chelsea Halfpenny) and Zak Dingle (Steve Halliwell) as suspects in the case. The identity of the attacker will be revealed in January.
Emmerdale airs Cain's 'Judgement Day' on Thursday, December 8 at 7pm and 8pm on ITV1. Browse through the gallery below to see the newly-released pictures.
