    The Sun TV Soap magazine, 27/09/15:

    >
    Star Interview. Thomas Atkinson

    "Lachlan's motive for possibly killing Robert is that his stepdad has really upset his mum. However wierd Lachlan is, he's very protective of Chrissie, and Robert hurting her has really affected him.

    "Robert has manipulated Lachlan before - such as when he told him to pretend he was suicidal, just so Robert could get in Chrissie's good books again. Lachlan felt so close to Robert, but ever since he discovered his affair [with Aaron], that's been wiped away. Now this hatred has been building up in Lachlan - and he is capable of anything.

    "I'm enjoying this storyline and looking forward to the big reveal about who did shoot Robert. It will be great for the viewers to watch too."

    1) So who killed Robert?

    Maybe we are all looking in the wrong direction in trying to solve who shot Robert? The storywriters have clearly set every viewer up to be bamboozled by who was the shooter that killed Robert. Maybe we will never solve the crime by thinking in this way? Maybe we all really need to think "outside of the box"?

    The way we found out that Ross wasn't dead after Pete left him in the woods was by finding out/knowing that Mike Parr was still filming at the Emmerdale studios in Leeds after Ross was supposed to be left for dead in the woods by Pete!

    Maybe we should be thinking about how to solve who shot Robert in the same way = who isn't filming right now on the Emmerdale set and whose contract is due to expire?

    We know from the This Morning show on Friday September 25th that the following actors got interviewed: Aaron/Robert/Chas/Andy/Paddy.

    Lachlan didn't get interviewed. neither did Chrissie or Debbie. Are ITV protecting/gagging these characters from TV airtime?

    Then, of course, we know from much previous painful experience that Emmerdale PC Plod soap police always get it wrong and are shown up as complete idiots after a while, so maybe we can all assume that when Chrissie, Andy and Lawrence get arrested that it isn't them!

    Maybe Andy just goes away to cool off for afternoon/evening when Robert gets shot? (How could Andy phone Diane and Vic at the pub if he's hiding in a bush at the back of the pub?)

    Would Aaron really fire a powerful gun at Robert when his mother was so close in the scene? Even if she wasn't shot, she would be there looking like a murder suspect.

    So that leaves angry young guy and mother-loving Lachlan (aka another Norman Bates?) as the #1 fall guy from too much Call-of-Duty-style hitman role and gun practise?

    Lachlan:

    Has motive for killing Robert, believing Robert killed Katie, and knows that he, Lawrence and Chrissie want Robert out of their lives.
    Already made a recce/partial attempt to shoot Robert in the village previously. Also known to have practised posing with the gun at Home Farm. Visited Belle and Kirin during the afternoon, his rucksack made a heavy thud as he put it on the table there. Seen walking from the village after the shooting, took object from left trouser pocket and threw it quickly into the meadow before Lawrence's car pulls up. Was shifty and reluctant to be at the hospital with police there. Also looked guilty at Home Farm later when Lawrence says he found the safe open and the gun missing.
    Problems = how could he get a gun? (Home Farm safe left open by Chrissie/Robert? Knew combination anyway?) What item did he throw into the meadow after the shooting (the gun? the bracelet? If it was the gun, had he used it?) Would he strangely just steal Chrissie's bracelet (presumably valuable) from the safe for Belle and how would he get away with giving Belle this? Is Lachlan another teen gone beyond troubled?

    Lachlan appeared on TV first in Emmerdale on 10th November 2014, so is due for contract expiry and would be an 'easy pick' for an Emmerdale character due to leave the show around right now.

    Maybe Lachlan knew the Home Farm safe code (his mother is a wine-lover and maybe really careless at times, accidentally showing him the code at any time previously, even not securing the safe at times?). He wanted Belle to have Chrissie's expensive bracelet but Kirin was there and he didn't have any chance of giving her this. Maybe this is what he threw into the meadow after Robert got shot, or maybe it really was the gun he threw away there? Maybe he shot Robert, panicked, dropped the gun in the bushes and sneaked away while distractions were going on. Aaron later found the gun around the rear of the pub, thought Chas had shot Robert and thrown the gun into the bush. Aaron tried to dispose of the gun via the scrapyard waste (destined for a metal crusher?). 'Guilty' Aaron really wanted Robert dead at the time of the shooting, but after a week or so, he may regret this and his hate switches to love? Who knows what happens next but spoiler interviews suggest Robert and Aaron are involved with other again after this.

    2) The Reveal

    Andy and Chrissie get arrested on Tue/Wed 29-30 September. Lawrence "confesses" on Thu 1 October. A number of villagers know about the gun, including Rakesh, Ross, Chas, Chrissie, Lawrence, Lachlan, Aaron. Some of these even know that Lachlan was the one to find it and carry it around Emmerdale. If there are any police charges for Chrissie or Lawrence, will Rakesh be able to be a credible lawyer for defending either Chrissie or Lawrence whilst Rakesh and other villagers know that Lachlan could be the one to have used the gun to shoot Robert with?

    Maybe the reveal will just let the viewers know who did shoot Robert but no-one in Emmerdale ever pays back as they keep it "in the family"?

    During the conversation with Chas at the back of the pub, Robert looks to the right 5 times, and even turns towards the right just before Chas seems to walk away. Every time he looked to the right, he didn't seem at all concerned. Maybe he could see someone in the bushes and could even see who it was. If so, then for him to remain so calm, he must have known who it was and it was someone he would usually trust. Who would that be? Lachlan?

    The reveal is meant to be the first-time ever method for a soap.

    I was thinking of a sort-of series of scenes shown one after the other, with each scene showing the activities experienced by a different group of people. There was a 4-part series on ITV shown during 2012 about the sinking of the Titanic. Each part showed the lives and ends of a group of people as they experienced the sinking of the ship. For Emmerdale, maybe there could be something like one scene from people in the pub, one scene from people in the cafe, one scene from Chas, one scene from Aaron, one scene from Andy, one scene from Ross, a final one from Robert.

    I think EastEnders might have done something like this in the Lucy storyline (I'm not knowledgeable on this though as I'm not an EastEnders viewer, so maybe this scene-series idea has been done before on a soap and the Emmerdale reveal is something else?).

    Whatever the reveal is, it may come sooner than we think. Danny Miller suggested a short timescale. So 2-3 weeks?

    Aaron tries to dispose of the gun on Wednesday Sept 30th. Hopefully, the storywriters will let us see where he gets this from on or before Wednesday. If he just finds it in the bushes at the back of the pub then we won't maybe learn anything about who the shooter was. The interesting find will be just what was the item that Lachlan threw into the field?. Was it the gun, the bracelet or something else?

    Itís normally Robert Sugden taking drastic action and bundling troublesome teens into car boots but Aaron Dingle is about to race to the rescue of the man he loves by intercepting Lachlan White who is threatening to make sexual abuse lies about his former stepdad.

    Having overheard Robert talking about Chrissie and being left furious, Lachlan is on the warpath and wants to make Robert pay. While Robert prepares to propose to Aaron, Lachlan confronts him, suspicious of his relationship with Rebecca. He threatens to pretend that Robert abused him and Aaron is left livid after overhearing.

    Given Aaronís ordeal at the hands of his abusive dad, Gordon, this is the worst thing that Lachlan could threaten to do to someone Aaron cares so much about and the red mist soon descends. After Aaron traps Lachlan in the car boot, Robert realises what he has done and the pair end up arguing.

    With it being unknown how far Aaron was prepared to go, Robert is clearly worried about the consequences but as they have their disagreement, Lachlan flees and the couple are forced to give chase.

    But as they catch up with him, a struggle ensues which could have terrible consequences.

    Emmerdale fans may finally see justice served next week as Lachlan White confesses to the police that he shot his grandfather Lawrence.

    Lachlan (Thomas Atkinson) decides that it's time to come clean after feeling betrayed by his mum Chrissie - and some extra manipulation from Rebecca helps things along too.

    With Diane Sugden (Elizabeth Estensen) on the warpath after hearing the truth about the shooting and how Andy was framed, she completely loses it by heading to Home Farm and threatening Chrissie with Lawrence's shotgun.

    Chrissie comes clean with Diane in Emmerdale
    ITV
    Much to Diane's surprise, Chrissie (Louise Marwood) finally shows her vulnerabilities as she breaks down and explains herself in full for the first time - admitting that she's scared of her son and what he's capable of.

    What Chrissie doesn't realise is that Lachlan is recording every word of her conversation and he feels totally betrayed by what she's told Diane.

    After Rebecca (Emily Head) sticks her nose in and tells Lachlan that he'd be better off confessing, the troubled teen decides to do just that and heads off to the police station.

    Lachlan isn't being totally honest as he wants the shooting to sound like an accident, but as he tells the officers that he was to blame, at least it's a start!

    Rebecca urges Chrissie to take the fall for Lachlan in Emmerdale
    ITV
    You'll have to tune in to find out whether Lachlan also drops Chrissie in it, but Rebecca clearly isn't finished meddling yet as she urges her sister to fall on her sword and take the blame for her son.

    Will Chrissie listen to her sister's advice, or will she stand by and watch Lachlan get sent down?

    Emmerdale airs these scenes on Thursday, November 17 and Friday, November 18 on ITV.

    Sounds awful, Lawrence is a good character and Emmas exit should only involve her boys. I hope its not true.

    Emmerdale is staying silent over claims that Lachlan White will murder two characters, in what is being described as a "proper Emmerdale bloodbath".

    The response followed a story published by The Mirror, whose sources claimed Lachlan would finish what he started by murdering his grandfather Lawrence, while Emma Barton would also get caught up and killed off.

    An Emmerdale spokesperson told Digital Spy: "We never comment on storyline speculation or artists' contracts."

    The claims suggest the plot twist, which will see the demise of the two characters, will play out in the run-up to Christmas and "change" the soap.

    They also imply actor John Bowe, who plays Lawrence, was unhappy with his exit from the soap, having previously been killed off in Coronation Street.

    Bowe played Duggie Ferguson on ITV's sister soap from 1999 - 2002, before he was killed after falling through a bannister and plunging to his death.

    Lachlan was previously cleared of shooting Lawrence, while Andy Sugden is on the run after being wrongly accused of committing the crime.

    However, Lachlan was later found guilty of perverting the course of justice and thrown in jail.

    It won't be the last we'll see of Lachlan, however, so keep your eyes peeled for more trouble from him.

    Emma's exit and comeuppance should feature her sons and Moira, Faith and her family are already involved with Emma so need for another unconnected character

    I would like Lawrence to stay with Ronnie, give them a happy ending

    How can Lachlan stay living in the village once he is released he has done too much
