It could be the end of the line for Lachlan White in Emmerdale as Rebecca is set to finally come out of her coma – and it could finally trigger his exit and downfall as the truth about Chrissie and Lawrence’s deaths comes to light.
Rebecca has been in a coma ever since the terrible crash and Lachlan even contemplated finishing her off to protect himself from the consequences of the truth coming out. He is relieved when she wakes up and appears to have no memory of him causing the crash and her mind is focused on her tragic losses.
However, this is short lived. Rebecca is soon shouting at Lachlan that she knows what he did and he is thrown into a panic. He may well try and make her believe that her memory is playing tricks on her but Rebecca is determined to get everything right in her mind.
Discharging herself from hospital, she heads to Home Farm, which is now owned by Joseph Tate, and tries to trigger memories of that fateful day. Robert Sugden and a frantic Lachlan join her at the house and Robert is keen to get her back to hospital.
But it seems that Rebecca is on the cusp of exposing Lachlan and its doubtless that he couldn’t stay around if something as mammoth as this came to light.
As Rebecca is finally confirmed to be surviving, is it a case of one White in and another White out as Lachlan is caught at last? Or will he manage to dig his fingers into the life he has built for himself and get away with his awful crime?
