goodbye ebrake

My ebrake cable has been loose as hell for about a month but a few days ago when i hit the brake regular brakes it would squeak really loud and go away, sometimes also squeaked when i let off the brake. Pulled the rear wheel off and drum cover off on the drivers side off and as soon as i pulled the cover a nice little surprise dropped out from the inside

ebrake cable snapped inside the drum housing and got wedged in when i hit the brakes each time.
will i replace it? um probably not lol
