In upcoming scenes, a distressed Chrissie (played by Louise Marwood) believes Lachlan (Thomas Atkinson) has taken his own life after he disappears and leaves worrying messages.
The troubled teen has been full of rage since Robert Sugden (Ryan Hawley) was granted a stake in Home Farm by Lawrence White (John Bowe).
And at the beginning of next week, Aaron Dingle (Danny Miller) becomes increasingly worried with the troubled teenager’s threatening behaviour.
Rushing over to the Dingles’, he leaves Belle (Eden Taylor-Draper) in a state of shock as he tells her how Lachlan almost hurt baby Seb and he hired a prostitute earlier on in the year.
Belle is left distraught when she confronts Lachlan and he doesn’t deny it while Robert is delighted everyone can finally see the teen’s true colours.
Following the awful revelations, Lachlan sends his mother a text which says he will never return.
Lachlan then leaves Belle a goodbye voicemail as he’s seen in a dark room picking up an electric drill.
Will Chrissie’s nightmare of losing her son come true?
Louise Marwood, who plays Chrissie, admitted her character knows her son is unpredictable.
She told the Radio Times: “She knows he’s delicate and is worried what he’s capable of in terms of self harm or doing something stupid. When she gets the text she assumes the worst and thinks he might have killed himself.”
“Lachlan is very unpredictable. He is angry and wants to lash out and hurt people, especially now it’s fallen apart with Belle who has been a good influence on him.
