Hi! I'm out and unable to watch the preview so if it's no bother what's it like? I trust that you're always sensible and don't freak out too much :P thanks!
I got u babe
Bex and Rob are chilling at Home Farm, drinking and talking about business - Rob has apparently just used his Ultra Charming Powers of Charm™ to flirt his way into or out of something and he’s feeling all chuffed with himself. Because Robert Sugden doesn’t understand modesty when it comes to 1) his business prowess and 2) his ability to charm people. It’s great.
Bex tells him to wipe his smug smile off his smug face (but in a much friendlier manner) and they have some banter because they’re friends and it’s all just v platonic and sweet and my soul ascends because it’s 2017 Robert finally has a friend and it only took 3 years #blessed
Rob picks up his phone and notices that he has a missed call from his husband-to-be. He literally immediately drops everything and says he should go. Then he starts acting sort of shifty and mentions to Bex that she probably… shouldn’t mention that they’ve still been doing business.
Bex, like any normal person, immediately asks what’s up, because she just assumed that Aaron was completely in the loop and informed of the fact that Rob is still giving Bex a hand (and making money for himself and Aaron in the process)
Rob, knowing that Aaron would react… not all that great… to Robert hanging out with his one lone friend, has obviously decided to just… conveniently… we’ll, you know, lie to Aaron about it. All he says to Bex is that it’s better if Aaron doesn’t know - but he’s all shifty and weird and guilty about it and he just… he’s clearly not feeling all that great about this lie
(AND ROB, IF IT MAKES YOU FEEL GUILTY THEN YOU PROBABLY SHOULDNT BE DOING IT)
(EVEN IF YOU KNOW THAT AARON HAS NO REASON TO BE JEALOUS)
(THEYRE SO BAD AT COMMUNICATING SOMEBODY HELP THEM)
… uh anyway, Rob says that it’s better that Aaron doesn’t know that he and Bex are still business buddies and in the soapiest of soap timings, this is when Aaron turns up with a face like thunder.
Aaron stares at Rob and then basically tells him in his Angry Voice - as well as Bex - that all Rob does is lie lie lie. He literally walked into HF hot and he’s ready to kick off. He probably spent the whole drive up listening to angry music and getting himself pumped. This can only end in tears (or rather, Aaron getting drunk on whiskey bc pain and punching Kasim in his pretty face)
Rob’s face does that little thing where everything drops in shock and/or panic (you know the one) because oooop #busted
And then it cuts to black because they’re not gonna spoil the blow up just yet but… I mean look, there’s gonna be some yelling. They’re gonna do some yelling. It’s gonna be angsty af and we’re probably gonna cry but also it’s gonna be great because hey at least they’re probably going to yell their honest feelings at one another which they haven’t done in a while lbr
Anyway, rating: 7/10 would definitely recommend a viewing unless you’re not a fan of drama and angst in which case it’s ok next week I will be available for hugs and somewhat subpar comfort because you just know it’s gonna be a damn rollercoaster but honestly it’s gonna be great they’re gonna argue and then they’re gonna have a crisis talk to try and save their relationship and then THE POPO ARE GONNA WRECK SOME SHIT and everyone is gonna be sad im so ready
