It’s been a painful few months for Cain and Aaron so it felt only right that Cain was the one to try and reach out and help his struggling nephew in my Scene of the Week. The Aaron and Cain relationship is one that works well when they show their emotions, as often around each other they are guarded and hardened, and after their macho posturing recently, this week’s episodes lead to both characters showing their vulnerabilities again. With Cain finding Aaron alone and distraught in the forest, Aaron confessed his heartbreak of losing the family and future he’d so longed for with his husband. Going through similar struggles himself Cain put on a brave face and tried to reassure him things would get better and suggested Aaron return to counselling. This was a heartfelt scene of tender performances and writing that honoured both characters’ history.
