Emmerdale star Jay Kontzle reveals more on Billy death dilemma in Meena plot

Meena is back with yet another of her sick games.

Emmerdale spoilers follow.

Emmerdale is gearing up for a horror-tinged Valentine’s Day episode when killer Meena Jutla returns to exact her revenge on Billy Fletcher.

Billy actor Jay Kontzle has opened up on what Meena’s comeback may mean for his character and his wife-to-be Dawn Taylor (Olivia Bromley).

In upcoming episodes, Meena (Paige Sandhu) is determined to punish Billy on his wedding day. He and Dawn are set to finally tie the knot on an episode airing on February 14, but it looks like a romantic epilogue won’t be on the cards for them.

Stills from unaired episodes show Meena threatening the newlyweds after the ceremony, playing a sick game with them: she asks Billy to choose between saving Dawn or himself.

“Does [Billy] really think Meena could shoot them both? 100%,” Kontzle said speaking to Insertions.us and other media.

The actor is adamant that Billy would sacrifice himself in order to save Dawn.

“Obviously he’s not going to choose himself over Dawn,” he continued. “As I always say, Billy’s whole thing is family. If anyone’s going to go it’ll be Billy because Dawn has got Lucas and that’s his everything.”

After so many twists and turns, Billy and Dawn may not be able to have their well-deserved happy ending.

Another image sees Meena firing her gun after Billy decides to save Dawn, but will the killer respect his decision?

Kontzle said Billy would be “gutted” if Dawn were to die.

“I have said this a number of times, I always seem to be surrounded by death,” he said. “I have watched so many different characters die and I feel like the grim reaper. He’d lose his head. Dawn’s the love of his life, he’d be lost.”

“The biggest heartbreak for Billy would be that Lucas is left without a mum,” Kontzle added.

“He couldn’t cope with that. If it was himself, at least Lucas would still have Dawn and a biological dad as well. I think if anything, the person to go would be Billy because he wouldn’t want that to happen to Lucas at all.”

Has Meena shot Dawn or Billy? Or both?

Emmerdale airs these scenes on Monday, February 14 and Tuesday, February 15 at 7pm on ITV.
