Lachlan White has murder in mind once again in Emmerdale tonight as his mission to turn the village into Midsomer continues unabated. Having already killed half of his family in a car crash, he also butchered his best mate Gerry Roberts – and these are some of the people he was meant to love most in the world.
So spare a thought for con artist Terry – someone Lachlan doesnt have any positive feelings for whatsoever. He is now on the killers radar after Lachlan has become wrongly convinced that he is the one behind the threatening texts he has been receiving threatening to expose his criminal behaviour.
Fans will recall a clash between Terry before he left in which he made it clear that he knew what Lachlan had done so now Lachlan is determined to silence him before he ruins everything – including his precious life with oblivious Belle Dingle.
Having learned from Doug Potts that Terry is known to police for gatecrashing funerals and taking advantage of vulnerable mourners, Lachlan has tracked him down and watches him from afar as he surreptitiously joins a funeral he has no part in.
After the ceremony, Lachlan waits until he sees Terry alone and then approaches him with a deadly plan in mind. There is no denying that it is Lachlans goal to kill Terry – he has no qualms whatsover about adding to his kill count – but could Terry escape with his life? Or is his fate sealed?
He isnt the only one in danger either. The killing spree continues next week too when Lachlan – getting more and more desperate – targets Robert Sugden, Liv Flaherty and then his own aunt Rebecca.
With all of these violent and horrific actions, Emmerdale village has never been more dangerous – and were talking about a place that regular has aviation vehicles dropping on it and has been home to other serial killers such as Emma Barton and Cameron Murray.
Surely its only a matter of time until Lachlan carries out a murder too far and exposes his true colours?
Emmerdale continues on Friday 13th July at 7pm on ITV.
