Emmerdale has confirmed a shocking death will air next week on the ITV soap, and now some fans believe they have rumbled the identity of the unlucky victim.
Meena Jutla will kill a village resident next week in harrowing scenes, while details are being kept under wraps.
The unpredictable and vindictive character will strike, as she begins to lose control – and grows all the more possessive over boyfriend David Metcalfe.
David, son Jacob and Leanna Cavanagh all feature in a dramatic new trailer that teases the possible victim, while Victoria Sugden and Gabby Thomas could also be in danger.

Some viewers have come up with a chilling and devastating theory about the death though, and they believe Meena will frame someone else.
While some fans are thinking Jacob might be the one to lose his life, others think it will be his girlfriend Leanna.
Many have questioned whether Meena might kill the teen before framing Jacob to have David all to herself.

Victoria grows closer to David in upcoming scenes, something Meena will want revenge over
She and Jacob have a falling out next week and declare war on each other, with her warning him not to cross her.
But as he threatens to expose her, could he pay the ultimate price by losing his life, or even his freedom if he's accused of murder?
One fan tweeted: "I think it’s going to be Leanna, frame Jacob to get him away from David and then she’ll end up making David’s life hell and go after Vic at some point if Vic and David get close."
Another agreed: "If her victim is based on the trailer i would assume its leanna? i cant see them kill off Vic or David, Gabby is pregnant and involved in the tate plot and Jacob has just returned if that trailer has nothing to do with it, could be anyone."

A third added: "I reckon Leanna will be the first. The impact will be huge."
Meanwhile, another predicted: "I hope it isn’t, but I’ve got a bad feeling it’s Jacob…" backed by another comment that read: "Bye bye Jacob."
Others believe it could be Gabby who dies, despite her being at the centre of a huge storyline with the Tates – with it being pretty random that she's even in the trailer.

Then there's Victoria who grows closer to David in upcoming scenes, something Meena will want revenge over.
Some fans have even asked if it's actually someone who isn't in the trailer at all, from Rishi Sharma, to Charles Anderson and even Andrea Tate.
Viewers will have to tune in next week to find out who dies, and what leads to the shocking twist.
Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
