The Robron-centric episode saw Robert Sugden (Ryan Hawley) preparing to propose to Aaron Dingle (Danny Miller), only to find his romantic plans scuppered when Aaron thought it was a good idea to kidnap Lachlan White (Thomas Atkinson). As you do.
It turned out that tying Lachlan up and locking him in a car boot before driving to the middle of nowhere made matters worse, but that was only the start of Emmerdale viewers' trauma.© ITV
With Lachlan still in the boot (naturally), Robert confessed all about his engagement plans and Aaron took his eyes off the road, looking up just in time to hear Robert shouting: "WATCH OUT!"
And it's fair to say viewers were screaming at their TVs too.

Is this the end of Robron? Probably not just yet as Miller and Hawley have both filmed an unseen epic underwater stunt sequence, which could come about as the car potentially hurtles into some water.
We will have to wait and see if it marks the end of Robert, Aaron or Lachlan though, as tomorrow's episode goes back to the start of the same day and follows Paddy, Rhona, Pierce and Marlon. Emmerdale are such teases.© ITV
This week's episodes are exploring the same 24-hour period from different character groups, until all of their stories converge on Thursday with one devastating event.
We're on the edge of our seats just thinking about it.
Emmerdale continues tomorrow (October 18) at 7pm on ITV.
