Emmerdale spoilers follow.
Meena Jutla has left sister Manpreet Sharma with a chilling threat in Emmerdale after confessing to all of her murders.
The soap had previously hinted that Meena may have killed Manpreet with a cliffhanger that saw her inject her sister with a hypodermic needle to knock her out.
However, Wednesday's (December 29) episode opened up with Meena having bound Manpreet's hands to the bedpost and gagged her as well, having only agreed to release the gag if her sister promised she wouldn't scream.
"You're not pregnant and you never were," Manpreet realised once her mouth was un-gagged, with Meena sniping: "Top of the class, as usual."
Manpreet figured out that her sister would have planted drugs on Dawn Taylor too if she hadn't turned up exactly when she did.
She tried to reason with her sibling, arguing: "You may be many things, Meena, but you're not some cold-blooded killer. I think you may be having some sort of psychotic episode, possibly not your first."
Meena laughed in Manpreet's face, then re-gagged her and admitted she was a bit insulted that her sister would put down her killing spree to a "psychotic episode".
Meena then went into the village, where she issued a chilling warning to Vinny Dingle once she overheard he was trying to clear Liv Flaherty of Ben's murder.
"You might just have to accept how things are. Because, well, if not, it might just destroy you," she told him.
All throughout Wednesday's episode, viewers also got brief scenes of Rishi trying to find Manpreet – without any luck. Finally, he managed to overhear Manpreet's cries from upstairs in her room.
As he got Bob Hope to open her doors, Meena intercepted them before they could get inside to claim that Manpreet had gone to recuperate in Ibiza — and the noise Rishi had heard must have been Princess barking.
Meena then returned to Manpreet's bedside to relive all of their old sisterly disagreements, leading up to Meena explaining why she'd killed her friend Nadine.
"You have no idea how hard that was for me, killing the best friend I ever had," Meena insisted. "Nadine, Nadine, Nadine. They say you never forget your first.
"That's the thing… Nadine may have been my first, but she certainly wasn't my last."
Manpreet was horrified as Meena explained she was trying to "open up" to her sister — she'd now reached the threshold of a serial killer with four murders (Nadine, Leanna, Andrea and Ben).
Manpreet listened in terror as Meena explained how she was "so ready" to kill Leanna in spite of the long gap between her first two murders.
"After Leanna, there was Andrea, Magic number-three," Meena recalled with a perverse smile. "See, just before I killed her, she let off the flare gun that set off the fire in the maze. All to cover up my involvement."
Meena even confessed she'd been caught on Ben's camera trying to drown Victoria, so she resorted to killing him in order for her secret to stay sealed.
"You need help," Manpreet desperately begged her sister. Meena then rose to her feet and menacingly warned: "Then, that makes two of us."
Manpreet tried to get inside Meena's head, suspecting that her sister couldn't kill her so that's why she's holding her captive instead.
"Don't you ever presume to know what I can and can't do," Meena demanded while grabbing Manpreet by the throat. "I can do anything I want! Don't you see that yet? I'm unstoppable."
Meena left Manpreet sobbing, insisting that they are "in this together now" that her sister knows about all of her murders.
Emmerdale airs on weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
