No nup­tials for now

An ac­ci­dent forces Paula to call off her wed­ding with Al­tus.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - 7DE LAAN -

It doesn’t look like rekin­dled cou­ple Paula and Al­tus (Di­aan Lawren­son and Heino Schmitt) will be say­ing their “I do’s” any­time soon. We were hop­ing for good news af­ter they re­united in July, but Paula’s dad Marthi­nus (Deon Lotz) ar­rived in Au­gust and ru­ined it – he’s against them re-mar­ry­ing and wasn’t afraid to say so. On Wed­nes­day 2 Septem­ber, Paula and Marthi­nus have a blow-out about the wed­ding, then on Thurs­day 3 Septem­ber, Paula gets a phonecall… Paula tries to get a flight to Venezuela on Fri­day 4 Septem­ber and by Mon­day 7 Septem­ber, she packs her bags and tells Al­tus to put the wed­ding on ice. “The only thing that she can think about is get­ting to her dad and hope­fully mak­ing peace,” Di­aan says. When she ar­rives at his bed­side later on Mon­day 7 Septem­ber, Marthi­nus is so weak that he barely recog­nises her and they don’t have a chance to talk.

Back in Hill­side, Al­tus is rest­less. “He isn’t keen to let the wed­ding ar­range­ments go,” Heino ex­plains. On Fri­day 11 Septem­ber, he tells Si­fiso (Anelisa Phewa) that he’s not plan­ning on can­celling the wed­ding and hopes to sur­prise Paula with a dream wed­ding when she re­turns. Al­tus feels re­spon­si­ble for Paula’s ar­gu­ment with her fa­ther, while Anna places her re­spon­si­bil­ity as a jour­nal­ist be­fore her friend­ships. Ma­trone bribes Oubaas with koek­sis­ters, Paula re­ceives bad news about her dad, and Ty and Willem are be­com­ing bud­dies. Gita’s plan to an­ni­hi­late the Crou­camps is tak­ing form, and the Mein­tjies fam­ily are hav­ing a dif­fi­cult time. Pu­lane doesn’t shy away from flirt­ing with new phys­io­ther­a­pist Franco, while Ty wor­ries that Gita’s plan is too dan­ger­ous. There’s a sad day in Hill­side, Paula’s wor­ried about her dad’s health, and an un­ex­pected guest ar­rives in the Laan. Willem gets drunk and re­veals a big se­cret to Ty, while Franco’s clearly play­ing with fire. Si­fiso warns Diederik not to fall for Kim when he asks her to be his date for a work func­tion. Al­tus is wor­ried about his and Paula’s fu­ture, and Bonita and Vanessa dis­cuss Xan­der’s de­clin­ing health. Mean­while, Gita re­fuses to work with Her­man when he sug­gests a few changes at The Heights.

Al­tus is on his own in Hill­side.

Paula is at her dad’s bed­side while he re­cov­ers.
