Emmerdale fans everywhere rejoiced when paedophile Maya Stepney was arrested for her abuse of Jacob Gallagher.
Maya (Louise Clien) has been abusing Jacob for some time now, and Jacob (Joe-Warren Plant) is still totally in her thrall after having been groomed by her for months.
Finally, after David (Matthew Wolfenden) got wind of the sordid affair between his teenage son and his girlfriend, he intervened and got Maya arrested.
But those of us who thought that it was game over for Maya at last could be sorely mistaken…
Is Maya going to prison?
As Maya was questioned by the police, her manipulative streak and skill as a liar came in handy once again, when she played it off that Jacob was just a kid with a crush, and that all she’d ever wanted was to support the troubled boy.
Putting what could prove to be the nail in the coffin of a case against her, Maya played the victim – claiming that Liv’s (Isobel Victoria Steele) blackmail was unfounded and purely because of a grudge, and revealing that Leyla Harding (Roxy Shahidi), Tracy Shankley (Amy Walsh) and Priya Kitecha (Fiona Wade) had kidnapped and attacked her.
As a result, all three women were arrested, and when Maya came face to face with them, she pretended to be petrified.
Now it seems Leyla, Tracy, and Priya are the ones who could be facing jail time, with Jacob fully prepared to throw Leyla under the bus to save the woman he thinks he loves.
With David now relying on Leyla to tell the police the right thing to get Maya sent down, and unaware that he’s about to make even more upsetting discoveries, fans can’t help but wonder: Will Maya ever be made to account for her crimes? And will Jacob ever find a way out from under her thumb?
Unfortunately it’s just too soon to tell…
