Emmerdale fans have been left thrilled as Liam and Leyla finally unearthed Meena's box of killer mementos after weeks of it being buried in the village allotments. 

As Liam and Cain rekindled their bromance and turned things over with a spot of gardening in Liam’s beloved allotment, little did they realise they were about to uncover the proof they needed to link Meena to the spate of tragic murders that had been happening around the village. 

At the start of last night's episode (Monday, Feb. 21), we were led to believe that Liam had slipped back into his post Leanna slump – looking all glum, questioning his actions after pushing Meena over the bridge.

However, it was down to Cain to show his softer side, for the second time in a week and persuade Liam not confess all to the police, and stay quiet about what really happened that fateful day on the bridge with his daughter's killer. 

Fans enjoyed seeing Liam and Cain's bromance rekindled and took to Twitter to share how much they enjoyed the characters' scene together...

After a heart-to-heart with Cain, Liam was pleased to see a just-released-from-hospital Leyla, who tracked her husband down at the allotments and within moments spotted what she thought was a time capsule hiding in the dirt. 

But instead of some Blue Peter style out-of-date items, the pair were shocked to find the box was full of tragic mementos, which fans know are Meena’s keepsakes from her killing spree.

It wasn’t just Liam and Cain that did the soul searching last night. A number of the villagers reflected on the events of the last week. 

Mandeep in particular was in a deep and meaningful mode as she confessed to Charles that she previously thought her sister had a hole where her heart should be and that's where evil entered in... well, that’s what being tied up and slowly poisoned to death will do you! 

Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays - see our TV Guide for full listings. You can also catch up on ITV Hub now.
