Emmerdale fans believe they’ve “worked out” how Charles Anderson will “double-cross” Manpreet Sharma after she made him a confession about sister Meena Jutla.
The vicar paid another visit to the jailed Meena during the soap’s Friday release, leaving many fans wondering what his motivation might be for seeking her out, though he also ran a support group for those affected by her crimes.
The vicar has secretly visited the killer in scenes reminiscent of Silence of the Lambs, believing he could convince Meena to confess to the murders of Leanna Cavanagh, Andrea Tate and Ben Tucker.
He hinted that this was the only reason he would see her opposite Harriet Finch, who warned him to be careful as he feared being manipulated.
But fans already suspected Meena was up to something and cast doubt on her claims that she was seeking God’s forgiveness.
In Friday’s hour-long episode, Charles managed to persuade Manpreet to admit how she covered for local doctor Liam Cavanagh after he pushed Meena off the bridge on the soap last month.
After the support group meeting fiasco, Charles sought out Manpreet to clarify Liam’s involvement in Meena’s downfall.
He said to Manpreet, “You still haven’t answered my question – whether Liam pushed Meena off the bridge,” and she replied, “If you want to believe her statement more than mine again, then why are you asking?”
Charles replied, “I need to hear the truth from you. If we keep secrets, they’ll fly in our face like yesterday. I’m not here to judge. Whatever happened, we will take care of it.”
Manpreet then admitted: “Meena goaded him. Bragging killed Leanna, and it was done in the heat of battle. Meena drove him there. His actions were justified and I have no regrets lying to the police.”
But several soap fans took to Twitter to theorize that the vicar may have ulterior motives to lure Manpreet’s confession out of her, and many suggested he may have hatched a plan to dupe Manpreet after telling her sister had come close during prison visits.
One wrote, “Manpreet don’t tell him he’ll go back and tell Meeniac,” while another said, “I wouldn’t trust Charles.”
A fellow fan wrote: “Charles will judge Liam for pushing Meena and making a false statement.”
Another asked: “Is Charles working for the police now? Why is he so obsessed with Meena ffs?”
Another fan said: “Oh Manpreet you stupid woman!!” while another asked: “Will put Charles Liam on the old bill”
Another warned: “Keep your nose out Manpreet. Charles will go and see Meena.”
Other fans wrote, “Charles is under Meena’s spell…” and, “Charles she’s playing you man open your eyes.”
