Emmerdale's Robert Sugden has been planning to get revenge against Lee Posner, the man who raped his sister Victoria, no matter what the cost.

But tonight's (July 17) episode sees his other half Aaron Dingle have to break up a fight between Robert and Lee, which leads to him discovering that Robert has been stalking Lee (and let's not forget how he also paid Dawn to try and catch Lee red-handed).

Aaron issues an ultimate – stop trying to take down Lee or it's over for them. Robert says that he realises his revenge has been for him and not Victoria, and agrees to drop it.

But then, Robert meets up with a solicitor to take out a restraining order against Lee, which Aaron sees.

After another argument, Aaron says that he's had enough and that Robert needs to leave until Robert actually does put his family first.

Will that actually happen though? We've seen from Emmerdale's recent summer trailer that Robert sees this revenge as a life or death thing, and actor Ryan Hawley is planning to leave the soap soon...

Emmerdale currently airs weekdays at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
