r pathudi mojalefa (melusi yeni) is a stand-up gent. he’s accomplished, romantic and he loves thuli nkosi (simphiwe ngema). in fact, he’s so head over heels with his successful coo fiancée that some may even call him an idiot. he certainly feels like one when a little birdy fills him in on what his lady love’s been up to at the office while he’s out saving lives… pat gets the shock of his life on wednesday 10 december as ndalamo’s (lesley musina) pa and part-time lover matshidiso (buhle samuels) tells him that not only are thuli and ndalamo still getting cosy, they’ve taken their flirty behaviour up a notch and matshidiso had a front-row seat. naturally, pat isn’t pleased, especially after the lovetriangle drama that thuli put him through with ndalamo. “pat’s angry and tells thuli that he knows that she’s not in love with him, even though he loves her so much,” says simphiwe of thursday 11 december’s fight. “he doesn’t want to marry someone who’s in love with someone else.” but is their fairytale romance really over? although she’s technically single, thuli tries to resist ndalamo’s advances on monday
15 december and tells him that she doesn’t love him, even though they both know it’s not true. “ndalamo comes with risk, including his fling with matshidiso,” simphiwe explains. “he’s not committed or stable and although that turns thuli on, she can never admit to being in love with him – it would give him power over her.”
but tuesday 16 december sees thuli realise what’s at stake when she must answer to their respective families and friends as to why they’ve called off the wedding that everyone was looking forward to. pat’s dad lerumo (john morapama) isn’t buying their silence and after holding a family meeting the next day, wednesday 17 december, pat tells him everything. the engaged couple have a heart-to-heart on friday 19 december. pat surprisingly has reconciliation on his mind and simphiwe says that “pat gives in and tells thuli that he forgives her”. is the wedding back on? not if matshidiso has her way – she goes to thandaza’s (sindi dlathu) party on monday 22 december and tells thuli to stay away from her fiancé ndalamo. “thuli’s scared as it’s in a public place and once people find out that miss goody two shoes [thuli] has done such an unspeakable thing, they will turn against her.” maybe you should’ve thought of that before playing the field, thuli. seems it’s time to make a choice between the two guys in your life…
