Will Meena kill Manpreet to keep her secrets? (ITV)

After the latest shocking cliffhanger, Meena Jutla’s (Paige Sandhu) sinister reign continues in an Emmerdale double-bill tonight.

During last night’s episode of the soap, the killer panicked when newly-reinstated police officer Harriet Finch (Katherine Dow Blyton) investigated Manpreet Sharma’s (Rebecca Sarker) disappearance.

Meena’s attempts to divert her attention failed, and her words certainly weren’t enough to stop Rishi Sharma (Bhasker Patel) worrying about the whereabouts of his estranged wife.

In the closing moments of Wednesday’s instalment, Meena raged as her plot to savour her next sickening act of murder fell apart. We saw her dragging a body along in the darkness, before telling Manpreet that she “never wanted it to end like this”.

Now Emmerdale viewers are left wondering if Meena has taken her sister’s life earlier than planned.

Manpreet and Rishi in 2021 (ITV)

Of course, our spoiler round-up for next week has already teased the answer, but if you would rather avoid knowing too far in advance then you can read on below for a spoiler-free preview of tonight’s drama in the Dales.

As far as this storyline goes, ITV isn’t giving anything away ahead of Thursday’s episode — so naturally, we can’t tell you much about what transpires either.

What we can say is that Harriet and PC Swirling (Andy Moore) haven’t given up just yet, and Meena tries to cover her tracks. This leads her to make a discovery and embark on a search of her own.

Despite these stressful developments, the game has only just begun as far as Meena is concerned. But how long can she really keep things under her control? And what has she done to poor Manpreet?

The actor previously suggested that her character’s ego could have the potential to ruin her.

“There’s this sense of like ‘I kind of want people to see what I’ve done’. I always find that sometimes, she’s very good at playing the mask and manipulating people and pretending to be a completely different person.”

Meena Jutla [PAIGE SANDHU] (ITV)

Sandhu added: “But sometimes I think Meena purposefully has... what I call it is 50% mask, where you kind of see that she’s lying but the words that she’s saying are so sweet that you’re like, ‘wait what? What’s going on?!’ And she enjoys that because it’s part of the game - and that’s starting to make her downfall.”

With this in mind, we can tease that tonight’s Emmerdale showcases a little more of Meena’s mask slipping.

Tune in to find out how — you won’t want to miss it.
