Rob is 10 years into a loving relationship with his partner, Owen. On the night of their anniversary, he has the owner of a local sex shop at knifepoint. When he tries to make his escape, it is revealed that the silent alarm has been triggered, the shop owner seems to have regained control of the situation. This pushes Rob off the edge and causes things to get physical. We see that he has hands his around the shop owner's throat, when a safe word is uttered.
