Meena Jutla of Emmerdale ‘broke the fourth wall’ in a sinister scene on Thursday’s ITV soap, speaking directly to viewers.
Serial killer Meena stared straight at the camera and spoke to viewers as if they were Charles Anderson in a creepy and unexpected moment.
When vicar Charles told Harriet Finch about “lost soul” Meena and admitted he went to see her, she warned him to be careful.
Suddenly, Meena was seen reading bible verses while Charles expressed his desire to assist the killer in some way.
“God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth,” Meena continued to read.
“And they may come to their senses and avoid the devil’s snare.”
She then approached Charles directly, but she did so while staring directly into the camera lens, as if making eye contact with the viewers at home.
“Come to your senses, Charles, and escape the devil’s snare,” she said.
Meena then locked her gaze on Charles for a few moments, making it clear that she was up to her creepy antics.
Despite Liam’s claim that it was in self-defense, she had already told Charles about Liam purposefully pushing her off the bridge.
Meena revealed that Charles’ on-again, off-again lover, Manpreet Sharma, was aware of this and covered for him, leaving him stunned.
However, as Meena worked on persuading Charles to forgive her, a creepy moment occurred, which spooked viewers.
As one fan put it: “That Meena ending has sent shivers down my spine. It’s pure terror.”
“Looking down the camera from Meena never seen that on # Emmerdale,” another tweeted.
“Meena breaking the fourth wall.. creepy,” said a third, while a fourth said, “Don’t look at me like that, Meena, you’re scary.”
“After being captured by him to do his will,” says the end of the extract, which Meena does not read.
Is this a hint at what Meena has planned, and is she attempting to dupe Charles into carrying out her next move?
