Robert just managed to get his proposal out before the pair spotted something in the road and cried out in terror but could this be the end?
The end of Robron could be upon Emmerdale.
After finally plucking up the courage to ask Aaron Dingle to marry him, Robert Sugden had no sooner got the ring out than cried out in terror as their car spiralled out of control into something unknown.
In the first of the ITV show’s super soap week episodes, the loved-up pair were put in mortal danger after the flash forward of a funeral revealed that at least one character would die.
As the episode came to a close, their car hurtled towards the unknown, with them crying out in terror, and so soon after they had worked out some of their issues.
Spoiler pictures revealed last night hinted of the tragedy to come.
Blurry teaser images released by producers of the ITV show reveal the Dingle (Danny Miller) submerged in dark blue waves with a seriously scared expression on his face.
His brows were furrowed in worry and his mouth open to let out a few air bubbles which popped to the surface.
Yet it is the second shot which will have sparked intense worry among fans of the Yorkshire soap, revealing Aaron’s eyes wide open and him seemingly meeting his fate.
He has the ring in his pocket yet his plans are seemingly scuppered as furious Aaron attempts to drown Lachlan White, when he threatens to pretend Robert sexually assaulted him.
Yet with Aaron submerged instead, it looks like his attempt at protecting his other-half has gone wrong.
Scenes aired tonight saw Robert’s ex son in law Lachlan threaten Robert by telling him that he will pretend that that he sexually abused him and hopes this will make him leave.
What he doesn’t count on is Aaron overhearing.
Chas’ son was sexually abused and raped by his father, so when he hears that Lachlan is planning to lie about something so horrifying (and about his boyfriend), Aaron is infuriated.
He grabs Lachlan and shoves his head under water.
