“I’ve said before and I’ll say it again – Emma is creepy AF,” one fan wrote.

“Emma Harding is low-key creepy, but it’s kinda campy,” said another.

“Emma’s weird, not too fond,” a third viewer said.

“Patsy Kensit giving off ‘The Hand that Rocks the Cradle’ vibes,” said another, referring to the 1992 horror film about a psycho stalker nanny.

“Emma’s going to be the new psycho!” added one more.

Another said: “Dark side to Emma?”

“I actually think it’s going to turn out Dan tried to get Lola away from Emma, there’s definitely something wrong,” suggested someone else.

A further commenter added: “I’m fully prepared to love Emma if she goes Mega Camp Eeeevil. We sorely need a new Janine-y maniac.”
