Emmerdale viewers were left delighted last night, as Meena was caught out and overpowered by the normally wet Dr Liam.
Viewers admitted shouting at their TVs as Liam delivered a stunning punch on serial killer Meena, thrilled to see Meena get her comeuppance.
The drama began as Meena had Manpreet and Vinny tied up and held hostage in a barn, and had hoped to add Billy to her list after she arranged to meet him there.
However, she was shocked when it was Liam who turned up, having been tipped off by Billy.
Liam was looking out Meena’s welfare – ironically, he was worried about her mental health, although little did he know just how badly Meena has lost it!
As always, Meena put on a good show, and was convinced that she’d persuaded Liam that she was just at the barn to get a bit of peace and quiet as things were getting on top of her.
Turning on the waterworks, she was happy she’d dealt with Liam has he headed off back to the village.
Viewers expressed their disappointment that Liam’s arrival and departure was just another way to pad out the long-running plot. However, they soon realised they were wrong.
When Meena returned to the barn, she was shocked to realises Liam was behind him – and he punched her to the ground!
“I don’t think I’ve ever screamed 'OH MY GOD' so loud at the TV in my life!” said one viewer on social media.
While another was just shocked that the normally mild-mannered Liam had it in him. “I’m sorry I ever thought you were a bit of a plank,” they joked.
Indeed, the shock twist was won universal praise…
