The Vampire Diaries
Season 3 SABC2 (*192) 23:00 Sci-fi Episode 12 Alaric finds out that Dr Meredith Fell is using vampire blood to treat her patients.
Tell us about Chwepheshe. His name means “master” in Zulu – he is a master chef [Laughs]. He’s very cocky and pompous and not everyone is going to like him. How do we meet him? He appears out of nowhere. He pretends to be a customer at Mandlakazi’s (Nambitha Mpumlwana) shop and he offers Nokulunga (Tina Jaxa) financial assistance after she tells him about her boutique plans. What are his intentions? He casually drops that he’s looking for his brother. “You may know him – Kgosi?” to Selo and this sends Selo reeling because he now knows that Chwepheshe may discover or already know that he and Mickey killed Kgosi in May. He confirms this by telling them that he knows they’re behind Kgosi’s disappearance… How does Selo take this announcement? He’s rattled. What led them to get rid of Kgosi was because of what he knew and he was becoming a thorn in their side. Now Chwepheshe has done the same, attempting to run the show. He comes to take over like the classic bad guy he is. He’s not straightforward about his takeover but he drops subtle hints. And how does he intend to carry out his plan? They don’t have a choice but to give into his demands, but then Mickey pushes Selo to get rid of Chwepheshe because not only is he annoying on the business side of things, he’s also seducing Nokulunga, whom Mickey had a thing with. NB! More on p17.
