Lachlan White seemed to confirm his aunt Rebecca IS dead while having an emotional moment with baby Seb during last night’s episode of Emmerdale.
Rebecca’s fate has been left up in the air after he brutally attacked the heiress two weeks ago, having held her hostage in a remote cabin in the woods beforehand.
But now it appears the serial killer may be damned by his own lips after suggesting Rebecca has gone for good.
Speaking to her infant child, Lachlan may have tripped over his words as he promised Seb he would support him in the future.
In saying so, however, he may have revealed the truth about what happened to Rebecca as he mixed up his tenses.
An apparently emotional Lachlan told the baby: “I know your mum’s not around but I need you to know that she loved you very much.”
Correcting her boyfriend, Belle Dingle stressed how Rebecca being missing does not mean she may not be alive – oblivious to the possibility Lachlan could be responsibility for Rebecca’s death.
“Loves… she still loves you Seb,” she said.

Realising his slip up, a haunted Lachlan quickly continued to Seb: “Yes, that’s what I meant.
“And while she’s not here I’m going to look out for you. I’m going to give you anything you need.”
Turning to Aaron Dingle, he added: “You make sure he knows that.”
It’s funny how Lachlan is talking as if Rebecca is dead…#Emmerdale

Belle is supposed to be one of the most intelligent people in the village yet she doesn’t think there’s anything weird about Lachlan’s behaviour or the fact that all of his family and best friend are either dead or mysteriously missing #Emmerdale

So it certainly seems like Lachlan believes he may have killed her…
… but could it be Rebecca survived Lachlan’s attack without him knowing?
Fans have feared the worst after Lachlan appeared to smother her, with many believing her body has been hidden in a suitcase.
Viewers may not have to wait much longer to find out the truth however after spoiler pics of Lachlan looking unsettled by upsetting news were released.
Is it finally time up for Lachlan?
