Things are heating up for unhinged Lachlan White quite literally tonight as he prepares to torch the cabin where he held Rebecca prisoner. Having discovered the message she scrawled which brands him a killer, he tried to obscure it but was disturbed and Priya Sharma caught sight of it.
Viewers dont know where Rebecca is or if she is dead or alive but Lachlan knows he has to get rid of the shack. With Joe Tate having other plans for the site, Priya is a regular presence so it doesnt give Lachlan much of a chance to lurk about.
And when she catches him nearby, she is instantly suspicious, having already voiced her fears to a dubious Joe. Lachlan lies that he is merely out for a run but he is actually planning to douse the cabin in petrol and destroy it.
With Priya out of the way, Lachlan sets his plan into motion but theres a sense that his act could throw someone in danger – is he about to claim his next victim?
And should Priya be worried about her own safety?
Emmerdale airs these scenes on Thursday 23rd August at 7pm and 8pm on ITV.
