Meena Jutla, Emmerdale’s resident serial killer, has become increasingly dangerous in recent months, having already taken three lives in the village since the summer.
However, Meena’s reign of terror appears to be coming to an end, as actress Paige Sandhu, who plays the murdering nurse, has hinted that as Meena’s dark web becomes more tangled, the residents of Emmerdale may begin to notice.
Talking with OK! Paige suggested that Meena’s sister Manpreet Sharma (Rebecca Sarker) is likely to play a role in her demise, albeit she isn’t the only one who has doubts.
“Manpreet is the one chink in Meena’s evil armour, so I think [Meena’s downfall] has got to revolve around the sisters,” she said. “In terms of a teaser, all I’ll say is that everything we’ve seen from Meena so far is small fish compared to what’s coming up from Christmas Day onwards.
“At the moment, she feels invincible, so her behavior grows increasingly bizarre, and people begin to notice that something isn’t quite right.”
Rebecca, Meena’s co-star and on-screen sister, also expressed her ideas on how she’d like Meena to get her comeuppance, and she had a distinct vision for Meena’s future.
“Meena reminds me a little of The Terminator. Despite the fact that I believe she met her Sarah Connor in Manpreet, “Rebecca cracked a joke.
“For her last hurrah, I’d love to see her starved of her evil oxygen. She’s the kind of person who wants notoriety and thrives on the terrible stuff she does. It’d be great if she was transformed into a dog-petting, flower-sniffing goodie. That’d be the most awful thing for Meena to experience.”
In the meantime, Meena has plenty more lies to tell. After sabotaging Manpreet’s relationship with Charles Anderson (Kevin Mathurin) by lying that Manpreet sent fake texts to Charles’ son Ethan (Emile John), Meena will also lie to Billy Fletcher (Jay Kontzle) that she is pregnant with his baby.
Speaking to Digital Spy about Meena’s baby lie, Paige said that her fake pregnancy “means that she still has a way of taking ownership of (Billy) and making sure that he can’t cut her out of his life, and there’s still a way of weaselling herself back in”.
The actress added that manipulative Meena “does go really far, too far” with her story, teasing: “Think of the worst thing and then times it by 10, that’s what she does”.
