Is Robert Sugden (Ryan Hawley) about to meet a fatal end after making one too many enemies?
It certainly looks that way after Robert once again gets on the wrong side of an increasingly volatile Ross Barton (Michael Parr) in scenes to be shown over the coming weeks.
The showdown comes after Robert threatens to make public recent photos of Chrissie and Cain sharing an illicit kiss. With Cain telling Chrissie that if she doesn’t take control of the Robert situation then she too will be his enemy, it seems that desperate action is called for.
After reluctantly seeking help from Ross, the village bad boy then jumps and mugs Robert at some temporary traffic lights.
Later, Ross produces Robert’s laptop and memory stick and hands them to Chrissie. But are they the only existing copies of the images? What could Ross possibly want with his own copies? And in what kind of condition has Robert been left?
