Emmerdale’s Maya Stepney was brutally attacked off-screen last week, with the culprit not yet known.
Her ex David Metcalfe is set to come under suspicion in the fallout, after he learned she was continuing to deny any relationship with his teenage son Jacob.
Maya and David were dating when she began grooming 15-year-old Jacob, before sleeping with him once he turned 16.
She manipulated him into believing they were in love, with Jacob still standing by her now despite her arrest.
Maya has been back in the village this week ahead of her court case, where she plans to plead guilty but only to sending inappropriate texts to the youngster.
On Friday she was rushed to hospital after being attacked, and while David is in the frame fans have another idea.
While Leyla is Jacob’s biological mother, it was her sister Alicia who raised him and posed as his mum until the big revel some years later.
Alicia lives in Portugal, with Jacob meant to have been joining her only to flee with Maya instead.
It was recently revealed she hadn’t been told about Jacob being groomed, or the latest with Maya.
But some fans think Alicia knows the truth, and that she was the one behind the attack to get revenge for her son.
One fan said on Twitter : “I still think Alicia attacked Maya.”
Another commented: “I sincerely hope it was Alicia who attacked Maya. Would love to see her back.”
A third agreed: “It would be good if it turned out it was Alicia who did it in a shock return.”
Emmerdale airs weeknights at 7pm on ITV, with an extra episode at 8pm on Thursdays.
