WILL Meena Jutla finally be sentenced for her villainous deed or could she escape justice again?
这 埃默代尔 serial killer’s trial begins next week and viewers will have to expect a jaw-dropping twist as she puts her plan into action.
Actress 佩奇·桑胡 promised the end was near for her character Meena, as she prepares to leave the Dales.
After successfully evading comeuppance for her actions, the sinister nurse is finally facing justice in upcoming episodes of the long-running ITV soap.
然而, as viewers may suspect it, Meena is willing to resort to all kinds of manipulative tactics in a bid to walk free.
接下来, the villagers are on tenterhooks as the trial begins and tension spikes when the criminal enters the courtroom, basking in the spotlight.
But the first of many shocking twists comes along when Liam Cavanagh (Jonny McPherson) takes the stand, fighting tears on the stand when talking about his daughter Leanna as he is accused of conducting an affair with Meena by the defence.
Ready to put all odds in her favour, Meena feigns meekness, which infuriates Liam.
The village GP lashes out at her but is worried he may have lost the support of the jury.
曼普雷特·夏尔马 (丽贝卡·萨克) goes through a similar ordeal when she is questioned and is made out to be a frequent liar.
Yet there’s more: despite being advised against taking the stand, Meena is too eager to soother her eager with the limelight to listen and prepares for her own testimony the following day.
Ready to destroy her sister and anybody else who may have wronged her, she rehearses her lines in her cell – and her hard work pays off.
In the performance of a lifetime, Meena plays the part of a vulnerable victim in front of an enthralled jury and her plan seems to work as intended.
稍后的, the tension builds up as residents nervously wait for the verdict.
同时, in prison, she has managed to catch the eye of prison guard Ian who is conflicted when, against his better judgement, he flirts with the serial killer.
But will Meena’s act secure her a get-out-of-jail-free card?
Or will the jury see right through her?
Could her prison escape plan really work?
埃默代尔 airs weeknights from 7.30pm on ITV.
