#Robron fans have been left on tenterhooks at the climax to tonight’s Emmerdale as their favourite duo – Aaron Dingle and Robert Sugden – look set to depart the village.
This evening’s cliffhanger saw Robert make a last-ditch attempt to save his relationship when he said that he and Aaron should leave their worries (namely Rebecca and her and Robert’s unborn baby) behind. But will Aaron agree to go?
The proposal came following a tense showdown that saw Robert expose Aaron’s self-harming – scars on his torso highlighting the fact that this is something that has been going on for weeks.
When quizzed as to why he’s been torturing himself, Aaron admitted that he was struggling with pregnant Rebecca expecting Robert’s child, even having wished her to have a miscarriage.
With his anger building, Aaron ended up smashing a framed picture of him and Robert together. But then came the most startling twist of all as Robert picked up a shard of broken glass and asked Aaron to hurt him as punishment for his actions.
Aaron, of course, couldn’t contemplate harming Robert, opting instead to declare that their relationship was now over, seeing their problems as being insurmountable.
But Robert wasn’t prepared to let Aaron walk away so easily. Turning to his partner, he said: “We move away, we never have to see Rebecca and her baby. We go and we never look back.”
Viewers will now have to wait until tomorrow’s double bill to see whether Aaron and Robert will be driving away united – or if #Robron are now over for good? Which is the lesser of two evils, Emmerdale fans?
