Emmerdale vicar Charles Anderson secretly visited serial killer Meena Jutla again in prison, in the latest episode of the ITV drama
Emmerdale viewers have been anticipating the drama ahead for Charles Anderson, as he gives in and visits murderer Meena Jutla in prison.
Keeping the visits a secret, fans urged him to ignore her pleas to visit this week when she tried to infiltrate his head.
Teasing him and trying to fend him off with her sister Manpreet Sharma, the latest episode of the ITV drama saw Charles give in – but he scuttled her efforts with Manpreet evil.
He seems to think he is in control of the situation, as he almost asks Meena to talk about her murders including the deaths of Ben Tucker, Andrea Tate, and Leanna Cavanagh.
Charles tells her that if she really wants his help to receive God’s forgiveness, then she needs to “purify her soul” and confess all her sins.
She was surprised in light of the plan’s targeting of the vicar, as Charles clearly believes he can get a confession from Meena, who has yet to admit to killing anyone other than Ben, which she considered self-defense.
However, he confided in his close friend and police officer Harriet Finch, who reminded him that due to his secrecy and secrecy, he would not be able to reveal what Meena said – or use it in court.
He then suggested to her that he was trying to gain her trust so that, after confessing to him, she could do the same in court.
Charles can’t let it go, after talking to Meena and encouraging her that she needs to tell him every detail and every crime.
She looks a bit flustered as if she doesn’t trust him, but their meeting is cut short – leading to Meena telling him to come back so she can tell him all about Ben’s death.
He tells her that he also needs to know what happened to Leanna and Andrea, and that she is considering what her next course of action will be.
When Charles spoke to Harriet afterwards, he was warned that he was playing with fire and that it could all explode in his face.
Reminding him that he could see the villagers turning against him if things don’t go his way, he insists he needs to get justice and demands Meena confess.
However, viewers worry that Charles is about to fall under Meena’s “charm” and that she will manipulate him, thwarting any plans to stop her.
One fan said: “I think Charles is under a spell from Meena, no hope for him now”.
Another tweeted: “Meena is playing friend Charles…don’t let her in.”
The third added: “Meena is getting inside your head Charles. She’s using and manipulating you emotionally. If only you knew the shame that you were a victim and believed in forgiveness. “
