Emmerdale viewers were overjoyed on Thursday night as the first of two episodes of the ITV soap revealed that serial killer Meena Jutla was nearing the end of her life.
Meena had duped Liam Cavanagh into thinking she was hiding in a barn to get some alone time before stating she needed help with her mental health.
But, like she had done for months, she was lying to him.
Liam returning to the barn and discovering what was really going on was something she hadn’t counted on.
Meena had kidnapped both her sister Manpreet Sharma and Vinny Dingle when they became aware of her threatening behavior.
They now know she is a serial killer who has murdered Nadine, Liam’s daughter Leanna, Andrea Tate, and Ben Tucker.
Meena had also decided to murder her most recent victims, tying them up in the barn and filling it with exhaust fumes from the van Vinny had driven up there last week.
She delayed her plan, figuring she could use former Billy Fletcher as a third victim, only for Liam to show up instead.
Meena came to the barn after their conversation outdoors and was furious to see Vinny was still alive.
She was ultimately caught out at that point, as Liam had sneaked inside the barn and was equipped with a massive piece of wood.
He looked horrified, as if he couldn’t believe what he was seeing, and Meena was equally taken aback by her boss’s entrance.
Liam swung the lumber and knocked Meena out before she could react, while she questioned what he was doing.
The video then cut to Liam wielding the weapon over a lifeless Meena, who was lying on the ground unconscious.
To find out what happens next and whether Liam has apprehended the serial killer, viewers will have to see the second episode.
Fans hoped so, and were left ecstatic at the big moment when he attacked her.
Emmerdale airs on ITV weeknights at 7 p.m., with an extra episode on Thursdays at 8 p.m.
