Emmerdale’s Robert Sugden (Ryan Hawley) and Aaron Dingle (Danny Miller) are set to take matters into their own hands in the quest for justice against Victoria Barton’s (Isabel Hodgins) rapist Lee – but will they end up taking things too far and making things worse?
Victoria’s life was shattered when she was brutally attacked in her own home by the predator following a night out. Since then she has been left shaken but determined that he doesn’t hurt another woman but Robert is becoming increasingly angry at the fact that Lee is still a free man.
Still struggling to get his head around Victoria’s decision to keep the baby, Robert reveals to Aaron that he is going to have it out with Lee at the car dealership where he works. Aaron decides it would be best if he accompanied his husband, knowing that he has a penchant for taking things too far.
The pair believe that they can get Lee to confess to raping Victoria but will their hopes be shattered as Lee remains adamant that the sex was consensual? Pictures have already been released of Aaron and Robert upping the ante by putting posters of Lee branding him a rapist on all the cars at the dealership – which seems to be a sign that they fail to get the confession that they hope for.
But when Lee offers to take the couple for a test drive in one of the cars, seemingly oblivious to who they are, the cogs in Robert’s mind are working. How will he try and take advantage of this situation and will he resort to heavy handed tactics when he manages to get Lee alone?
And, if so, will this only serve to make Victoria’s case and chances of justice through the courts weaker?
It remainas to be seen what Robron do next – but in a situation as precarious as this, one wrong move could have disastrous consequences.
