Emmerdale’s Meena Jutla turned nasty with teen Jacob Gallagher, even taunting him about his murdered ex Leanna Cavanagh who she killed earlier this year
Emmerdale teased Meena Jutla’s possible next victim on Thursday night, as Jacob Gallagher got on the wrong side of her.
Meena thought she had turned Jacob against his father David Metcalfe this week, after David ditched her for new lover Victoria Sugden.
She is playing the hero after claiming to have saved Victoria’s life, when she fell down a waterfall in dramatic scenes recently.
But what only Meena and her latest murder victim Andrea Tate know is Meena actually tried to drown Victoria, and was not saving her.
Jacob was furious with his dad for seemingly betraying Meena, with her pretending to be heartbroken while plotting her revenge.
But after hearing his dad out, Jacob approved of his dad’s new romance and was left awkward when Meena continued to try and play the victim.
She was in for a shock though when she realised she could not sink her claws into the teen, and he quickly saw right through her.
Meena reminded him of their chat earlier this week, where he admitted he wasn’t happy with his dad or his treatment of Meena.
But Jacob claimed she had twisted his words, telling Meena to move on.
Meena soon turned nasty though, even referring to the death of his late ex Leanna Cavanagh – who no one knows was murdered by Meena.
She said: “When you told me they’d be bored of each other soon and that David wasn’t worth me getting upset over, you were lying.”
He argued back: “I’m dead sorry you were hurt but dad has chosen Victoria. I want him to be happy… stop trying to make me take sides it’s not fair.
“He wants to be with Vic, not you. You have got to accept it and move on.”
Suddenly, Meena said: “Like you accepted Leanna when you didn’t want to go travelling with her? Because that ended so well didn’t it.”
Horrified, Jacob barked back: “If that’s what you really think then you’re a cow and dad is better off without you.”
As Meena gritted her teeth and told him: “You wanna know what I really think, do you?” Jacob told her: “You and dad are finished, get over it and leave us alone.”
Meena then warned: “Jacob, I can only pray that one day you will find the courage to speak your truth.
“You know you should be careful what you wish for, soon you might wish you had left well enough alone, like I wish I had left Victoria to drown in that river.”
She then gave him a creepy look and blew a kiss at him, leaving him visibly unnerved – but will she target Jacob?
Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
