Following the sudden disappearance of Rebecca White (played by Emily Head), Emmerdale‘s Lachlan White’s (Thomas Atkinson) storyline has been building up to this week’sclimatic episodes.
And tonight fans were left convinced Lachlan will be exposed by Robert Sugden (Ryan Hawley) and Priya Sharma (Fiona Wade).
It came after viewers saw Priya meet up with Robert and ask him for his help on figuring out Lachlan.
Could this mean the pair will join forces and expose Lachlan for the village villain he really is?
The scene showed the pair meeting one another outside the pub and Priya discussed her previous encounter with Lachlan.
Speaking to Robert she explained her suspicions and how she felt like he was hiding something.
In upcoming scenes, will fans see her admit to Robert what she saw in the cabin and will he believe her?
Taking to Twitter, viewers shared their opinions as one said: “Oh Priya told Robert. Good. Lachlan’s days are numbered.”
Whilst another said: “Robert to bring weasel Lachlan down with Priya?? #Emmerdale.”
“Really hope this is the week Lachlan is brought down – Priya and Robert maybe?” another viewer suggested.
However, before Lachlan is exposed, another Emmerdale resident is set to become his next victim.
Following the soap realising an exclusive teaser trailer for Autumn, scenes showed several characters at risk when he returns to the Dingles farm with a body wrapped and bound in cloth in the boot of his car.
The tweeted clip, entitled: “EXCLUSIVE TRAILER: (27-31 August) As his life tail spins, will Lachlan take another victim? #Emmerdale.”
The video showed Robert asking about Lachlan’s whereabouts before heading out into the village and up to the farm in search of him.
Robert could then be seen looking around the farm before he hid in an outbuilding as Lachlan approached holding a gun, with the sound of gunfire following shortly after.
Could Lachlan have found out about Robert and Priya’s secret investigation and shot him?
Another character who could possibly bring Lachlan down is Robert’s fiance Aaron Dingle (Danny Miller).
One fan has theorised that Aaron’s involvement in Lachlan’s incriminating voicemail storyline could point to him exposing the troubled teen.
The viewer wrote: “#AaronDingle must be involved in the #LachlanWhite takedown S/L other wise what was the point of Aaron being with #GerryRoberts when he received Lachlan’s voicemail back on 11th January.
“And when Gerry retrieved the voicemail back on 7th May, both scenes at Mill Cottage #Emmerdale.”
Emmerdale returns tomorrow night at 7pm on ITV.
