So. Lachlan White is back in the village and it’s not long before his reputation of headache and drama catches up with him.
Lachlan has been in a young offenders’ institute after covering up the shooting of his granddad, Lawrence.
He’s also the mucky pup that sexually assaulted Alicia Metcalfe while she was asleep.
It’s probably fair to say he’s a bit of a wrong’un.
Anyway, he’s been set free to prowl the streets of Hotten again but now is upsetting his mum, Chrissie, as she struggles to build bridges with her ‘troubled’ son.
When her plan to throw money at the problem – by initially giving Lachlan a Porsche – fails, she tries a different technique.
This time she tries to bribe Leyla into including Lachlan in a business deal. Will Lachlan smell a rat?
Well, we’re going out on a limb and guess he sniffs out several, following rumours that Lachlan White is going to be Emmerdale’s newest serial killer.
Reports have suggested that a number of regulars are facing the chop – and it’s all down to Lachlan.
It’s been a few years since Emmerdale’s had to deal with a serial killer so we’re gonna go with it.
Look out Cameron Murray, you’re about to be usurped…
