Lachlan White is clearly out for bloody revenge against the Dingles after being jailed for murder.
But has he escaped the walls of his cell in order to do it at his own hands?
Lachlan’s murder trial is finally coming to a conclusion tonight – but there is every chance he could manage to escape his shackles for one last kill.
Considering the amount of sticky situations he’s managed to get out of in the past, it wouldn’t be out of the realms of possibility to escape.
Could Lachlan have escaped prison?
Vanessa Woodfield is stabbed tonight
- Emmerdale: Who stabs Vanessa Woodfield tonight? Here are all the suspects
Could he get his last revenge by bagging one last victim: Vanessa?
The Emmerdale vet, played by Michelle Hardwick, is attacked tonight when she interrupts a man in a hood pouring petrol on the bins.
When she confronts him, Vanessa is stabbed and the man dashes off – with Johnny still in the car.
Following Lachlan White’s mystery call from his prison cell, it would be unsurprising to assume that he is behind the Dingles’ recent misfortune.
Here are all the other suspects…
Billy has been a mystery ever since he arrived in Emmerdale after a jail stint.
And with Aaron Dingle revealing his hatred for Billy after appearing in prison with him, could he have a dark side viewers haven’t yet witnessed?
Has Billy been Lachlan’s secret accomplice?
Some fans are also convinced that Billy is the person that Lachlan has been in contact with on the outside.
But is he really capable of attempted murder?

Lachlan’s dad Donny Cairns
Donny Cairns is another accomplice that Lachlan could have on the outside.
Some viewers have become convinced that Donny, who last appeared on the soap back in 2015, could be behind the stabbing after noticing that he is in the cast list for the episodes this week.
Will Donny return tonight?
One tweeted: "You guys realize Donny is in the cast list for week two. Yes. That Donny. #Emmerdale."
While another commented: "Random thought, rumour is its Lachlan’s dad who sets fire to the wool pack and stabs Vanessa. Question: why? Why attack the pub, seems random another example of no clear link if it turns out to be the case #Emmerdale."
