Paddy Kirk has never been Robert Sugden’s number one fan in Emmerdale – but one thing that he has always wanted is for the man he sees as a son, Aaron Dingle, to be happy. And when Aaron opens up to him about his conflicted feelings for his ex tonight, Paddy offers surprising advice.
Paddy saw Robert sneaking out of the Mill on Valentine’s night after almost sharing a kiss with Aaron and after the moment which has left his feelings up in the air, Aaron is questioning whether he and Dr Alex have a future.
Deep down, Aaron always knew that his feelings for Robert remained but after their almost-kiss, they have risen right to the surface. When he speaks to Paddy about what Robert was doing there, Aaron admits that he doesn’t know what to do.
Instead of telling him to run a mile from Robert like many of us would expect him to say, Paddy advises Aaron to listen to his heart – and all Robron fans know what Aaron’s heart will be telling him.
But it still could be a little while before any reunion is official as there is another minor distraction coming courtesy of Alex that makes Aaron reconsider things once more.
However, when Robron come face to face in a nightclub next week, it’s time to come clean. By that point, Alex is history and the stage is set for love to flourish once more.
Is a happy ending finally on the horizon?
Emmerdale continues on Thursday 15th February at 7pm on ITV.
