Aaron self harms

He reaches for a knife as he strug­gles to ac­cept Re­becca’s preg­nancy

TV Times - - Soaps -

It must be so ex­haust­ing be­ing Ro­bron. While most cou­ples bicker about whose turn it is to put the bins out, they al­ways have much big­ger is­sues to deal with – like Robert get­ting Re­becca preg­nant. It’s all too much for Aaron this week, who buys drugs from his old prison pal and self harms be­hind Robert’s back.

And it’s not just Re­becca’s preg­nancy that’s a sore point – Aaron also finds out that Robert has a se­cret stash of cash.

‘Robert has got money from an investment with Lawrence, but he didn’t tell Aaron about it,’ says Danny Miller, who plays Aaron. ‘They were run­ning around af­ter Ross and tak­ing risks be­cause Aaron thought Robert was skint.’ In a bid to show Aaron that he loves him more than moolah, Robert throws a brief­case full of notes into the fire. Aaron res­cues it and the pair talk, promis­ing there will be no more lies. How many times have we heard that?

All is fine and dandy again, un­til they see Re­becca at the road­side as they’re on their way to the bank.

‘Re­becca’s car has bro­ken down on her way to her scan,’ ex­plains Danny. ‘Robert drives on, but

Aaron tells him to stop and tries to fix it. He can’t sort it, so he sug­gests that Robert drives her to hospi­tal.’

Aaron walks back to the vil­lage alone, but be­neath his brave front, he’s heart­bro­ken about Re­becca car­ry­ing Robert’s baby. And, in a bid to ease the pain, he calls his for­mer cell mate, Ethan, and asks for some spice – the drug he took when he was in prison.

Ethan shows up at Mill

Cot­tage while Robert is out – and, to Aaron’s hor­ror, he brings prison thug Ja­son with him.

‘Aaron doesn’t know what Ja­son is think­ing,’ says Danny. ‘Is he go­ing to trash the place? Or bat­ter Aaron? He feels re­ally in­tim­i­dated.’

Over at the hospi­tal, Robert dis­cov­ers Re­becca is hav­ing a boy, and it’s clear he’s warm­ing to the idea of fa­ther­hood when he asks for a scan photo. Back in the vil­lage, mean­while, Aaron bins the drugs. In­stead, he pulls out a knife and self harms.

As Robert re­alises what his hus­band has done, can the cou­ple work through their is­sues or has their rocky re­la­tion­ship fi­nally reached the end of the road?

Aaron doesn’t know what Ja­son is think­ing. Is he go­ing to trash the place?
