when Rob comes into the backroom the morning after and is speaking with Liv. she’s worried that her telling Rob about the drugs upset Aaron. But instead of Rob simply saying “no, of course not”, he added more:
“Actually, he’s angry with himself for what he’s done. For the mess he’s caused.”
Aaron didn’t say any of that, but the point is Rob wanted to, not only protect Liv’s feelings, but Aaron’s image as well.
On further reflection, I now believe Rob was speaking for himself. He was apologizing for his own actions. He low-key apologized to Liv - the representation of his “proper little family”.
We throw around the word never likes its nothing but a small rose petal. The word never is a doubled edged sword. On one side it says ‘I will never leave you’ and on the other it says ‘I will never love you.’
