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 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.
That was such a great episode! Despite filming restrictions, in one half hour episode we learned so much about Cain's continued love for Moira and finally got closure for Aaron and Robert! Really showed why Aaron and Cain are two of Emmerdale's greatest! #Emmerdale

#emmerdale tried to say sorry tonight to fans for the appalling exit storyline given to Ryan Hawley.
Rather than twisting the knife into #robron as expected, this was great drama.
But it failed with 'now Robert has apologised I can move on'

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