Belle Dingle will soon find herself in one of her worst ever nightmares as she finally discovers that her partner Lachlan White is a murderer in Emmerdale – and fears that he has killed Sam in cold blood.
When Sam discovers just how dark Lachlan is when he catches him in the act trying to clear up evidence, Lachlan lashes out but he isnt quick enough to cover his tracks this time and Belle is horrified to find a blood stained jacket.
She demands answers from Lachlan as the truth dawns on her and Lachlan snaps and reveals the truth. And when Belle sees a bloodied and lifeless Sam for herself, she is sickened and tries to escape. A struggle ensues and Lachlan is too strong for her.
Overpowered, Belle is dragged outside and another series of events leads to her being hurt too. As she lies motionless on the road, Lachlan closes in. But, will he finish Belle off, removing the love of his life forever? And is this finally the end of the road for him as the village reels from shocking truths?
A recent trailer showed Lachlan wielding a shotgun as Belle, Sam, Robert and Priya all see the truth about him. So has Belle been shot?
And if so, will Lachlan become even more dangerous now he has lost everything he was covering his tracks for?
