Emmerdale has wrapped up a loose end in Meena’s storyline.
The serial killer is currently on the run from the authorities after Liam Cavanagh exposed all of her crimes during a violent confrontation.
The aftermath of Meena’s escape has wreaked havoc on the village, with her sister Manpreet being hit by a car driven by Charles as he desperately tried to save her.
Charles was hesitant to tell Manpreet about the accident, but Rishi, Manpreet’s love rival, found out the truth while she was recovering in the hospital.
In Friday’s episode (January 21), Charles decided he couldn’t live with such a terrible secret on his conscience any longer, so he finally admitted he was the one who ran her down by accident.
Charles also apologized to Manpreet for not believing her weeks ago when she told him Meena was the one who sent Ethan the fake texts posing as his mother.
“I couldn’t bear it. After everything she did, and knowing you got run over and knowing why,” he confessed. “I was worried when you disappeared. I knew something wasn’t right… I just panicked.
“She had everyone fooled. I needed to find you. I thought you were in danger, and I didn’t see you.”
As he apologised, Manpreet cut him off: “No, Charles. Hey, you don’t need to be sorry. Put it this way: if you hadn’t run me over, Meena would have got to me and I’d be dead anyway.”
Manpreet understood it was just an accident and thanked him for “looking out for [her] ever since”. She also told the vicar that him staying at her bedside “means everything”.
Manpreet also got some closure with her ex-husband Rishi, who paid her a visit at her bedside and told her how Charles had been praying for her the entire time.
“You’re very lucky to have him, and I thought you should know it,” a heartbroken Rishi told her.
