EMMERDALE SPECIAL PRISON EPISODE SPOILER
Emmerdale are shifting the focus entirely to Aaron Dingle’s prison story for a special episode next week – and things look set to get even worse for the much loved incarcerated character. With Robert Sugden and Liv Flaherty struggling to cope with Aaron being inside, Aaron is soon contemplating taking drugs to try and ease the pain.
The episode will show how the three main characters are dealing with the terrible situation and, as emotions run high, by the end of the episode everyone will have had their strength and resolve tested massively.
Here’s what to expect:
Having been the victim of vicious beatings from Jason and his gang, a bruised and devastated Aaron retreats into his shell, refusing to seek support or contact his loved ones about what he is enduring. When Ethan, his cellmate, offers him a joint for the pain, Aaron refuses but things soon get worse when Jason confronts him again.
Throwing Aaron to the cell floor, Jason delivers a revelation that leaves Aaron on the brink of suffering a panic attack. With an entire gang jeering at him, Aaron is unable to find the strength to stand up for himself and the prison chaplain later introduces himself, fearing for Aaron’s mental health. But will Aaron be able to open up to him or will he bottle it all up and further contemplate Ethan’s offer of relief through drugs?
Robert is trying to hold everything together and remains determined to work on Aaron’s appeal to try and get him home. While Robert wants to stay strong for Liv’s sake, Victoria soon notices the strain on her brother and urges him to speak to Aaron about his feelings.
Knowing that Aaron is likely going through worse – but not knowing exactly what his husband is facing – will Robert open up to Aaron? And, if so, will Aaron then summon the strength to confide in Robert the torment he is going through?
For a girl of such a young age, Liv has endured a lot and with Aaron being her main pillar of support in life, she is missing him a huge amount and fearing for his wellbeing. She and Robert make a good team but the agony is still raw over her brother being away.
Noah, who is fast becoming smitten with Liv, offers her support and as they sit together in the cafe, two lads – Josh and Jamie – have a go at them both which leaves Liv feeling even more vulnerable. As Noah sympathises with Liv’s situation, he encourages her to speak to Aaron. But will she feel like she is burdening her brother by confiding how difficult she is finding things?
