It was a tantalisingly close call for Lachlan White in today’s (August 7) Emmerdale, as his gruesome woodland secret was nearly uncovered by Jimmy and Nicola King’s children.
Bored with Bob Hope’s ghost stories while on their camping trip, Angelica, Carl, April, Heath, Cathy and Arthur went into the woods to do some exploring.
And they would have been in for a very big surprise if they hadn’t scarpered at the last minute.
As the children went deeper into the woodland they were startled by mysterious noises, unaware that Lachlan’s victim Rebecca is being held captive in a nearby abandoned shack.
After weeks of being chained up by her evil nephew, Rebecca could do nothing but watch her latest chance of freedom slip away from her – but could she actually rescue herself?
Fans of the soap have questioned how Rebecca is still captive, pointing out that her lack of food – and unreachable supply of water – should have led to her losing weight.
“I’m surprised Rebecca hasn’t wasted away and escaped past the chain,” one fan pondered after today’s episode, while another said “she could slip out of the waist chain from weight loss”.
There you have it, Rebecca – just shimmy out of those chains! We bet your bladder will thank you for it.
Asked when Rebecca will escape in a recent interview, actress Emily Head revealed that it is actually more of a question of “if”.
“Well, we don’t know if she does!” she said, adding: “I’ve never been chained in a shack before! I was really enjoying reading the scripts. My cast mates were asking ‘what happens next?’ I said, ‘I don’t know!'”
Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
