Emmerdale’s Meena Jutla returns to ITV screens on Friday to watch her explosive trail coverage on television from her cell
Emmerdale fans were disappointed when Meena Jutla returned to screens at the beginning of the film’s sixth season, despite assuming her plot ended with dramatic courtroom scenes the night before.
Meena has been accused of murdering Ben Tucker, Andrea Tate and Leanna Cavanagh – and while both the village and the audience are aware of her crimes, she has categorically denied them in court.
That means Dr Liam Cavanagh – Leanna’s father – and Dr Manpreet Sharma – Meena’s older sister – have to take a stand when they are asked about their relationship with Meena, as the killer accused them be responsible for death in one way or another.
But last night, Meena’s verdict was finally delivered, as the jury found her guilty of all the charges against her.
Emmerdale fans assumed this was the dramatic end of the killer nurse’s plot, so they were baffled afterwards when Meena was seen in jail at the beginning of Friday’s episode.
Meena is in her cell watching the extensive news of her explosive day in court unfold.
When Meena’s TV privileges were revoked by the warden, fans took to Twitter to respond to the character’s continued showings and predict what her villainous character might be up to.
One person wrote: “Omg why is she still on screen? I spent a fortune last night celebrating behind her back! Refund me! ”
Another posted: “Just when you think you’ll see the last of Meena in at least a while.”
A third fan tweeted: “Come on!!!! I think we saw the last Meena last night! ” as another wrote: “FFS! We’ll take Meena’s backstory while in prison. END IT!”
A fellow ITV viewer wrote: “Are you really kidding me?? It is not the end for Meena yet.”
Some Emmerdale fans have been predicting a “turning point” for the character on the soap, from a Shawshank-style runaway to even the murder of warden Ian.
One wrote: “There’s definitely a twist coming, it can’t end this way for poor Meena, she has to escape or something.”
Another wrote: “Obviously Meena would have escaped if she was still here,” as a third posted: “I think Meena has one last trick up her sleeve! Another escape attempt??? ”
One fellow fan wrote: “Is it weird that I feel like Meena is going to commit an invisible murder on Ian?”
Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7:30 p.m. on ITV.
