IN the aftermath of Meena Jutla's escape, the authorities are doing all they can to locate the evil nurse.
However, the serial killer is one step ahead of them as she's fooled the police into thinking she fled to go abroad and is already planning her fifth murder.
While Vinny made it out of the barn he was held captive in by Meena relatively unscathed, Manpreet is still fighting for her life after being ran over by her former fiancé Charles Anderson.
Meanwhile, the police are still looking for the nurse portrayed by Paige Sandhu and their research has seemingly led them to believe she left the country.
Emmerdale residents Liam (Jonny McPherson) and Jacob (Joe-Warren Plant) – informed by DS Rogers in an upcoming episode of the ITV soap due to air next week (January 24, 2022) – are the first to hear the news outside the Village Hall.

But little do they know that Meena is closer than they think, lurking in the shadows of the Dales.
Following an argument, Billy finds his partner Dawn to make amends and announces that he wants to tie the knot as soon as they can.
An eager Dawn posts a save the date announcement on social media, unaware that Meena, somewhere in a park, is seething at the sight of that same announcement, hellbent on revenge from her former fling and his fiancée.
