Lachlan White is a dab hand at killing people intentionally but now he may have started claiming lives accidentally too as a fire he started at a woodland cabin has consumed the building with Belle Dingle set to be left in a panic that her dad Zak is inside.
Zak was in the woods walking Monty when Lachlan started the blaze to try and get rid of the message Rebecca left while she was his prisoner. With Priya Sharma already suspicious, he decided that drastic action was the only way forward and he has successfully destroyed the building.
But when Monty ran away to catch a ball thrown by Zak, he didnt return and Zak could only hear barking in the distance as thick smoke started to flow through the trees. Fearing the worst, Zak gave chase and when Priya was alerted to the fire, she found Monty but with no sign of Zak.
As she urgently phones Belle, there is a panic over where Zak is and Lachlan worries that he may have killed the man who has been so good to him by welcoming him to the family.
Will Zak survive? And will Lachlan get away with this one?
