So like this is an unpopular opinion, but after yesterday, I finally have a sense of what is going on and what I think they are trying to do.
This is about the boys growing and learning (like I said from the very beginning :)))) ). I’m honestly here for it. Looking back…I can actually see myself enjoying this sl if I were to watch it again.
Does there need to be a baby? No, I really don’t think so. So there are def things that could have not been done or been done better. But that’s really moot at this point.
I really think that Robert has been extremely consistent and in character this whole time. I’ve been drawing a lot of parallels between Aaron/Chrissie and Aaron/Rebecca. Are they the same? No, not at all!! Robert is actually very much in love with Aaron, just for Aaron. He is the love of Roberts life. But that doesn’t mean he is just magically going to treat this relationship completely different from every. single. other one he has ever had.
Robert has really made efforts to change, and in a lot of ways he did. I think both Robert and Aaron thought, like us, that Aaron was the complete exception and that Robert would never do to Aaron what he has done to other people. Well, clearly, that’s not the case.
And it would make zero sense if it was, imo. Being with someone you truly love does not all of a sudden change who you are, how you deal with things, or the things that are so deep and ingrained within you. Robert has ended up doing things to Aaron he has done to everyone else, and for the FIRST TIME EVER he is taking a look at that and saying, “why?” And, “I thought I’ve changed, but did I really?”
These are such important questions to ask. I mean, to me, his change for Aaron was rather drastic and I liked it so I never complained. But this makes much more sense to me, and makes it more about Roberts growth as a person than Roberts growth just for Aaron. If that makes sense.
He is having his mistakes and flaws thrown into his face in HD. He isn’t being allowed to just ignore it like before because he actually loves Aaron and really does want to change.
I don’t know, this post is a mess. But I’m really, really enjoying seeing Robert question himself and who he has become. I’m loving seeing his growth and I love seeing that he didn’t become this just completely different character just because he is with Aaron. That just wouldn’t make any damn sense.
