I was massively disappointed in what seems to be Lachlan’s final week on Emmerdale, but I couldn’t let the week pass without praising the bristling face-off between Lachlan and Robert in Monday’s episode. Since their antagonism began, Lachlan’s been one of the few characters that ever felt like a real challenge to Robert, one of the few able to outsmart him, and with their final showdown this week, even behind bars, Lachlan managed to unnerve Rob. Knowing the ball was in his court, Lachlan taunted Robert with clues about Rebecca’s fate and whereabouts, before revealing his plot to murder Robert and Liv and how they’d resisted his attempt by “inconveniently breathing”. Hats off to Thomas Atkinson who gave a brilliant, darkly funny impression of Robert clinging to life like a guppy and Rebecca’s clueless reaction. It was stone cold sinister but a fantastic final display of just how good Thomas has been in the role. He’ll be missed.
