Robron: The Reveal
It broke Robert’s heart when Aaron said that Gordon had already taken so much from him. He wasn’t going to let him take Robert away too.
He didn’t want Aaron to feel like he had to forgive him because of that.
He took responsibility for his actions. He told Aaron he was the one who screwed up. He told Aaron he was willing to deal with the consequences.
He refused to let Aaron take blame. He refused to let Aaron feel like he had to stick around, for any other reason, than because he absolutely wanted to.
It’s the most selfless thing I’ve ever seen Robert Sugden do. He might have a lot of faults. But this is how he truly loves Aaron Dingle.
And we only got to see it? Because Maxine Alderton wrote the episode.
