It's not a random throwaway scene. It comes near the end of the show and the scene ends and flips to Zak and Lisa. Classic cliffhanger. If they're going for Aaron not seeing rob there and rob assuming it's proof Aaron moved on (when aaron realizes he hasn't) then yes it's a perfect set up and classic soap. Aaron will try to be friendly as usual after not knowing rob saw it. Rob will spiral down after this.
You all need to realize no matter what Eastie spoils, soaps work on cliffhangers. Aaron kissing Alex and Rob seeing; Debbie kissing Tom and Sarah seeing; explosive secrets at HF and Lachlan overhearing and hiding all works the same way. You either wait till the next episode OR the Aaron scene was set that way to further robron miscommunication & allow rob to sink further by allowing him to believe Aaron is w Alex now. Eastie is a toad but he has nothing to do w it.
Wow, these are so condescending. I know how soaps work. The problem is instead of seeing this in context and in the entire fucking show we have some asshole leaking 8 seconds of it. 8 seconds of a 2 minutes scene. Now that panic has spread he’s apparently hours later going to be like oh yes this is how the scene goes down within the episode.
How about instead of leaking just part of the fucking scene or talking about it you don’t put it out there so we can judge this all on the full episode? That’s the problem. There is more to this than some 8 seconds and we are only getting half the story from egomaniac who leaks part of the details so people will suck his dick to get more information is the problem.
I am exhausted by this all. I am so fucking sick of being unable to watch Emmerdale at this point without knowing everything. I don’t want to know all this and I don’t want scenes like this that are out of context. I am so fucking tired of people like you coming into my inbox and defending eastie being this way.
God, literally this whole message makes me want to scream. It’s great that we don’t know the whole set up or what else happens and just have some dude leaking the worst bits of it all instead of just watching the episode.
Do not ever come into my inbox again and explain to me how fucking soaps work. I’ve been watching them for most of my life. My problem is that maybe in the context of the full episode and not just a clip I could understand what they are doing.
