Emmerdale confirmed Meena Jutla’s (played by Paige Sandhu) killing spree has only just begun. Having presumably taken her best friends life, Natalie, Meena set her sights on Leanna Cavanagh (Mimi Slinger). Viewers saw the nurse throw the teenager off the bridge when she threatened to expose Meena’s dark past. So who would be next? Fans of the soap think someone Meena works with will become the second Dales resident to be killed…
Victoria Sugden’s (Isobel Hodgins) name has been mentioned.
The mother of one kissed Meena’s boyfriend, David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden) the night Meena was busy killing Leanna.
The shopkeeper and Victoria decided to keep the kiss a secret and carried on as normal, being friends.
But if Meena finds out what really happened, will she kill Victoria?
Others think Jacob Gallagher (Joe-Warren Plant) could be in danger.
He recently questioned the whereabouts of the ring he gave Leanna – the same one Meena took off Leanna’s finger when she was taking her last breath and kept.

Viewers have seen Meena brazenly wear the ring on a chain around her neck.
Should he spot Meena playing with it, will he question her and demand to know the truth?
While Victoria and Jacob seem like obvious potential victims, fans seem to think a newer character or one who has had smaller storylines will be Meena’s next victim.
Taking to Reddit to discuss, one wrote: “If they are going to drag this until the 50th anniversary then I think we’ll get two more victims.
“I think Rishi is one. I think Wendy is the other.
“Perhaps – through working with Meena, she learns what she did OR Wendy is killed when Meena tries to get at Victoria (given their connections),” they continued.
Wendy was embroiled in her own drama a while ago – her son Lee Posner (Kris Mochrie) raped Victoria.
She and her other son, Luke Posner (Max Parker) moved into Emmerdale and eventually built a good relationship with Victoria and baby Harry.
Wendy is a good person at heart, and always has the community’s interest at the forefront of everything she does.
Fans of the soap have also seen her ask probing questions in the past – could this be how she irritates Meena?
Perhaps Wendy won’t initially be Meenas next target – but find herself one when she uncovers Meena doing something sinister.
With access to all kinds of medicines and tablets, perhaps Meena will kill her next victim in a more subtle way?
And when Wendy questions her colleague over missing items, will Meena realise she needs to be silenced?
It comes after Emmerdale’s Producer Kate Brooks said: “Meena has been a whirlwind since arriving in the village, scheming and manipulating people and situations to get what she wants and causing nothing but drama and unnecessary heartache in the process.
“Her seemingly caring facade belies her true persona; a woman with a murky past and no conscience.
“Meena’s lack of empathy is often perceived by those around her as little more than spoilt petulance, however, we soon learn the true extent of her narcissistic and amoral character.
“Malevolent Meena will wreak havoc in the village and once she has you in her sights, no one is safe from her devious and dangerous machinations.
“This storyline will see the viewers gripped as they realise that this is a woman who is capable of anything and everything.”
Emmerdale airs weekdays at 7pm on ITV.
