Can Robert and Aaron get a confession out of rapist Lee?
Emmerdale star Isabel Hodgins says Robert and Aaron will try to trap Victoria’s rapist next week because Robert feels he must act.
The 25-year-old actress, who’s returned to our screens sporting a new look, reveals how Robert wants to be there for his sister – so he and Aaron decide they must get a confession out of rapist Lee.
Pregnant Victoria is concerned that Lee will never stand trial for raping her because she destroyed potentially vital forensic evidence including her clothes and bedding.
And cocky Lee reckons he’s off the hook for the brutal attack because he sent Victoria a text, thanking her for the “fun night”, thus trying to make it look like they had consensual sex. So, it’s her word against his…
However, Robert, who’s struggling to accept that Victoria wants to keep the baby, is determined to get justice for her.
“There’s a lot going on with Robert where he’s trying to get his head around what has happened,” says Isabel.
“It’s very difficult for him, but he wants to be there for his sister.”
With the police apparently not taking any action, Robert decides to take matters into his own hands. So, he and husband Aaron hit on the cunning plan of being “customers” at the car dealership where Lee works.
“Lee may have covered his back, but Robert doesn’t like not getting his own way,” says Isabel.
Lee falls for their plan and agrees to take them out on a test drive. Now, they have Lee where they want him will Robert and Aaron beat a confession out of him?
And, if they do get violent with Lee, will their actions ultimately make it even less likely that Lee will ever stand trial? And what will Victoria think of it all when she hears what they’ve done?
Emmerdale continues on ITV.
