EMMERDALE fans have predicted Robert Sugden could die in a fight with Lee after the rapist makes demands on pregnant sister Victoria.
Siblings Robert and Victoria reconnect after she phones him in a panic following abdominal pains that lead her to believe she’s having a miscarriage.
And Robert is by her side in the waiting room as he rushes her to hospital, where she’s given an emergency ultra-sound.
The nurse confirms the baby’s heart is still beating and all is well, and the frightening moment has made Robert and Victoria realise they need each other.
Though her pains turn out to be pregnancy cramps, she’s later distressed again to find Lee in the village demanding money from her to leave her alone.
He says he’ll disappear out of their lives if she clears his name and apologises for accusing him of raping her.
Robert is already raging that Lee has pushed his sister and Diana out of the village, as they plot to run away to Cornwall and as far away from Lee as they can.
And last night viewers were left convinced the drama would be the catalyst for actor Ryan Hawley’s exit after it was announced earlier this year.
One fan said: “Just kill him Robert (Lee that is not Aaron).”
Another tweeted: “Please let Robert have 20 mins alone in a room with Lee. .”

The Sun revealed last week that Robert and Lee will clash as the factory fire rages in Emmerdale.
The fire at the Sharma sweet factory will be caused by two residents later this month.
The show’s Executive producer Jane Hudson said of the summer storylines: “Not everybody will make it out alive, whether that’s one, two, three or four, you’re just going to have to see.”
