Emmerdale’s resident schemer Meena Jutla (Paige Sandhu) murdered Leanna Cavanagh (Mimi Slinger) in cold blood tonight (July 8), but interestingly it wasn’t just the murder itself that left us chilled to the bone.
It was the killer’s nonchalant reaction to taking to a life.
Meena, moments after pushing Leanna over the bridge, took a second to collect her thoughts and admire her handiwork.
She glanced below to see the young woman’s body lying in the river, and attempted to cry, but ultimately gave up when she realised that she was, and seemingly not for the first time, unable to emote.
‘Nothing,’ she muttered under her breath, evidently bemused at her inability to convey even the most basic of human emotion.
The one emotion she did demonstrate, however, was complete and utter annoyance, when she discovered that Leanna was, in fact, still alive!
The murderer sighed, and made her way down to the river, to sit opposite dying Leanna.
Meena cruelly toyed with her, claiming that she didn’t want to bother the emergency services. Ultimately, she left her to die.
And, when Leanna passed away, the evil killer reached across her body and removed the ring Jacob Gallagher (Joe-Warren Plant) had given to her.
‘Jacob is such a generous boy!,’ she added.
Meena, having ensured she was dead, joked that Leanna was going to miss her birthday party.
‘See you around,’ she said, before sinisterly smiling, ‘Or maybe not!’.
Emmerdale continues Friday July 9 at 7pm on ITV, or catch the next episode right now on ITV Hub!
