Mick Allsop 2018
After reconnecting with his ex, Rory Zemiro, Aaron Brennan found his life changing drastically. Rory
arrived in Erinsborough just in time to see Aaron receive a marriage proposal from his boyfriend David, which Aaron turned down, feeling that it was too early in the relationship. Rory saw a chance
to get Aaron back, and he stuck around, accepting a job teaching yoga. Rory and Aaron had been a couple during their time with the male stripper group Rough Trade - Aaron had left the group years ago, but when Rory hurt his shoulder,
he persuaded Aaron to help him out by learning a routine to try and win over a booking agent. As Aaron and Rory spent more time together, David became jealous, and when Rory 'accidentally' let slip that he and Aaron had met up in
Paris the previous year - something that Aaron had kept secret - it brought about the end of the relationship.
Rory then did his best to provide a shoulder for Aaron to cry on, and when they spotted Mick Allsop at Harold's Cafe, Rory saw his chance to get closer to Aaron. Rory and Aaron had known Mick back in Western Australia, where Rough
Trade had originated. Rory had always led Aaron to believe that Mick was obsessed with him, and that he'd stalked them and broken into their hotel rooms to get closer to Aaron. Worried about the effect Rory was having on Aaron, Aaron's
friends Paige and Elly decided to investigate the Mick connection, and struck up a conversation with him at the backpackers hostel. They learnt that it was actually Rory who
Mick was obsessed with, and that they'd been having a casual affair whilst Rory and Aaron were a couple. Deciding that he preferred the casual fling to the serious relationship, Rory had dumped Aaron and sacked him from Rough Trade,
claiming that it was for the best. When Aaron finally found out this out, Rory claimed that Mick was lying, so Aaron used Rory's phone to text Mick, asking if he wanted to hook up. The reply confirmed everything, and Aaron told Rory to
get out of his life, realising that he'd been manipulating him to try and persuade him to return to Rough Trade, as he'd always been their most popular member and he'd regretted letting him go, both personally and professionally.
