Vi­o­lent Hec­tor is ready to gun down his en­emy. Week­days (*194) 19:30

Bad-guy Lu­cas Ny­athi (Sello Maake Ka Ncube) has been rev­el­ling in his bat­tle of wits with busi­ness ri­val Hec­tor Thebe (Tu­misho Masha). But while Lu­cas seems firmly on track to hu­mil­i­ate Hec­tor, strip him of his wealth and crush him, some­thing has been shifting in Hec­tor lately. On Thurs­day 9 June, Hec­tor sug­gests to his lover and Lu­cas’s se­cret ally Layla (Natasha Suther­land) that they leave all the drama be­hind and go live in the US. “I think he’s start­ing to re­alise per­haps he can aban­don his plan of find­ing justice for his son and leave it in the hands of a higher power and find love and hap­pi­ness for him­self,” Tu­misho says. But some happy end­ings are never meant to be and Tu­misho adds: “Hec­tor’s story was al­ways what hap­pens to a man when he wants re­venge. His daugh­ter Naledi (Di­neo Moeketsi) warned him: when you plan re­venge, dig two graves.”


Hec­tor’s dreams crash to a halt on Tues- Lu­cas pan­ics when his son is put in harm’s way.

day 14 June when he sus­pects that his pro­tégé, Lu­cas’s son Mangi (Kag­iso Modupe), has hacked his com­puter sys­tem. Spit­ting nails, Hec­tor rants to Layla that he’ll kill Mangi if he’s right. He’s hit es­pe­cially hard be­cause re­al­is­ing that Mangi has be­trayed him is like los­ing his son all over again. “He can’t deal with that,” re­veals Tu­misho. “He’s to­tally blind­sided. He was try­ing to hon­our his son’s mem­ory through Mangi, whom he’s re­ally taken a shine to. He decides right then and there that he’s go­ing to take re­venge and that’s when things re­ally take a turn for the worse for ev­ery­body,” says Tu­misho.


On Wed­nes­day 15 June, af­ter find­ing a Din­tle can’t be­lieve what’s be­ing asked of her.


Every­thing falls apart in the week of Mon­day 20 June as Hec­tor con­fronts Lu­cas in his New­to­nian ho­tel room, gun in hand. “The thing that’s driv­ing him is pure rage. He’s so en­raged that he can’t help him­self, he’s out of con­trol,” says Tu­misho. The life- or- death con­fronta­tion brings Lu­cas to his knees. “Lu­cas of­fers him­self to be the one who should be killed rather than his son,” re­veals Sello. “The mo­ment Hec­tor puts Mangi in dan­ger, Lu­cas says, ‘It’s me you should take care of, not my son!’” If you think that’s shock­ing, wait ’til you see whose body hits the floor first…
