Tensions run deep
Nikiwe’s got love woes to worry about. Weekdays SABC3 (*193) 19:00
AUGUST: DEEP MATTERS
Nikiwe is spending time with Gabriel and sees a side of him that she hasn’t noticed before – plus, she’s developing feelings for him. Nikiwe asks S’khu for a break in their relationship so that she can gather her thoughts, but what she really needs time for is to see if her feelings for Gabriel are genuine. Meanwhile, Eddie’s court case starts and Yvette gets backlash on social media, forcing her to leave The Deep. New policeman Majola (Yonda Thomas) takes Eddie’s place and starts investigating the Zamdelas – and he’s found some confidential info! Aphiwe is caught offguard by Obakeng’s physically aggressive nature towards her, and Lerato gets devastating news from Dr Beth (Mary-Anne Barlow).
SEPTEMBER: HAPPY COUPLE
Lerato is preoccupied with what Dr Beth told her and she refuses to tell Sechaba. Meanwhile, Sechaba is getting cold feet over the wedding and he asks Parsons for help. Later, at the wedding, things go smoothly but will Lerato tell Sechaba her secret? Over at the penthouse, Nikiwe can’t fight off her feelings for Gabriel and distracts herself by planning a holiday for her and S’khu. The holiday ends up being an ineffective distraction and S’khu gets suspicious that something isn’t quite right with Nikiwe. Eddie’s trial continues, while Officer Majola is hot on the heels of a criminal in The Deep. There’s a shootout at the mine and someone’s left for dead. Nina then revamps the shebeen and hands the management reins over to Obakeng (see more on p4).
OCTOBER: TRAFFICKING WOES
Majola stumbles across a child trafficking ring in Horizon Deep and he later sees a connection to the Zamdelas, but he can’t piece together all the info that bad-guy Hector (Shepherd Sibisi) gave him. Meanwhile, Nikiwe’s feeling guilty about what she’s done with Gabriel, and a child prostitute is found alone and in need of help in The Deep. Eddie lands himself in hot water.
