Emmerdale fans praise soap for ‘brilliant’ Aaron and Cain lockdown episode

Aaron finally got some closure from Robert!

Emmerdale fans have praised the soap for it’s ‘brilliant’ lockdown episode last night (Wednesday, June 10) which featured Aaron and Cain Dingle.

In the episode, the uncle and nephew were thrown together as the coronavirus pandemic caused villagers to go into lockdown.

However things didn’t go smoothly for the duo. In the visit to the Dales, Aaron received a letter from prison which was sent from his ex-husband Robert.

However Cain was the one to see it first and hid it in a magazine. He worried that if Aaron read it, it would cause him to fall back into despair.

But a few days later, the mechanic let slip about the letter, leaving Aaron furious. He became even more worked up when Cain couldn’t remember where he put it.

Fuming with his uncle, Aaron delivered some home truths about Moira, claiming it was obvious Cain is still in love with her.

Eventually the scrapyard owner calmed down, but as he and Cain started to settle things, Cain found the letter in a magazine.

After Aaron read the letter, he told his uncle that Robert had apologised to him about how he dealt with ending their marriage.

Viewers were impressed with how the episode showed Cain’s continued love for Moira. They were also thrilled that they gave Aaron some closure on what happened with Robert.

However, some fans are afraid that this means Robert will never return to the village.
