Meena to kill Manpreet?
The big questions over Christmas are whether Manpreet will be the one to stop Meena’s reign of terror? Of if she’ll end up being her next murder victim?
The upcoming drama sees Meena going all out to discredit Dawn, even going to the extent of planting heroin at Woodbine. But her efforts are interrupted by Manpreet, who grabs hold of her sister’s arm, which causes the heroin to fall to the ground.
Manpreet then demands answers, not just about the drugs, but also about Meena’s supposed pregnancy. But believing her sibling to have crossed a line, Meena’s mood darkens and she starts to edge towards Manpreet with a broken bottle in her hand.
But will she really resort to killing her own flesh and blood in order to keep her secret safe?
