Tensions have risen as Emmerdale viewers continue to count down the weeks of the much-anticipated 50th anniversary of ITV’s soap this fall.
As the festive event approaches, fans have been sharing their theories about which character will get killed in the epic episode week.
Heading the list is the return of classic soap opera villain Mina Gutla after she was imprisoned earlier this year, as well as Bill Dingle lining up at the village chopping block.
But who will find his head on the cut-up and which character will have blood on their hands?
Ahead of the exciting shows, The Daily Star delved into popular theories surrounding the remote village in the heart of North Yorkshire.

Mina was sentenced to 75 years in prison for the murders of Ben Tucker, Liana Kavanagh, and Andrea Tate.
But viewers didn’t think they saw the latest manipulative killer as the golden anniversary approached as they flocked to Twitter to share their theories online.
The sinister nurse – played by Paige Sandow – was moved to her cell last week after the end of Reign of Terror, but attention-grabbing fans revealed a huge hint that she won’t be behind bars for the rest of her life.
As the camera turned toward the manipulative killer on the bed, several fans noticed a sign outside their cell that read “I Beeker” on the front.

This suggests that prison warden Am Baker is responsible for taking care of Mina – the same jailer the murderer manipulated before her trial when she asked him to help her escape by leaving a door open in court.
But when the pressure set in, Baker responded with his word, leaving the doctor furious.
Viewers are now speculating that he might make up for it in the future by helping her escape in time for the soap opera’s big birthday.

Fans have taken to the popular social media platform to share their theories about the convicted killer online.
One user wrote, “Why do I feel like Mina will be back for the 50th Anniversary?”
Another prediction: The officer in this cell is Anna Baker. This was the man she was playing with. I bet they’ll have it back by 50…”
A third agreed, saying, “I think Mina will return on the fiftieth anniversary of causing Mother of the Storms and then be killed in a mysterious murder.”
“What a great anniversary story if Mina committed to a psychiatric ward and then ran away as the anniversary approached… Then she starred in one of the epic scenes from #emmerdale! Her character reminds me of #Villanelle Love it!” .

Top of the list of Meena’s crimes is her sister Manpreet Sharma, who testified reluctantly against her at her high-profile trial last month.
After helping put her sister behind bars for more than 75 years, it’s fair to say that the veteran killer will be making some plans to get revenge on her sister in the near future.
After the trial, the paramedic took a well-deserved break, having slept well realizing that her sister was now safely locked up where she could no longer harm others.

But many viewers still suspected that the black-haired beauty would find a way to escape and make her sister pay to spend the rest of her life behind bars.
As viewers eagerly await the anniversary this fall, fans have already posted online their predictions for the sisters’ participation in the anniversary event.
One user wrote: “The evil, twisted Mina is back for revenge in October during what I’m calling the show’s 50th anniversary week. You’ll escape from prison! I think boring Manpreet will be killed by Mina, so what is Manpreet’s goal now?”

Another agreed: “Anyone else hoping for Mina to return to Emmerdale to celebrate the show’s 50th anniversary of Manpreet’s murder? #emmerdale.”
A third prediction: “#Emmerdale, I hope the vile Mina kills Manpreet because I think she’ll escape prison for a tarnished attitude at last during the show’s 50th anniversary festivities.”
“Manpreet and Vinnie were absolute fools to break up. Unfortunately, we definitely didn’t see the last Mina.
Another argued: “I wouldn’t be surprised if it came back for the 50th anniversary of #Emmerdale.”

Another Village star that fans are anticipating will be murdered later this year in an epic 50th anniversary twist is Belle Dingle.
Belle, one of the younger members of the Dingle clan, played by Eden Taylor-Draper, has experienced a lot of challenging storylines during her time on the series.
During her years on the show, she served her time in prison for the murder of her boyfriend and the loss of her mother, Lisa.
She also survived quite a bit – Lachlan White kidnapped her, was diagnosed with schizophrenia and fell into a mine pit at the age of seven.

But it might be the end of the road for the characters, as loyal viewers of the show assume their time at the ITV Dales is nearly over.
On Reddit, fans were eager to share their predictions about the soap’s upcoming birthday when a century falls into the ether.
One user wrote: “Dingle dies, either Noah or Bill, Noah is someone no one cares about, Bill is Dingle.”

Another suggested that the ongoing feud between Cain and Al could see someone he loves pay the ultimate price – and since Belle is attached to both, that would make sense.
One user predicted, “The feud of Cain and Al will get really bad by then and they will both end up leaving someone they care about or worse dead.”
Another person shared: “I think other stories might be able to break into Emerdell’s 50th anniversary, like the feud between Kane and Al, which might escalate into something much darker by the anniversary if it’s still there.” A few years lasts for months. ”
Emmerdale broadcasts weekdays at 7pm on ITV
