Hit­ting the bot­tle again is go­ing to cost Getty more than she can af­ford to lose. Week­days SABC1 (*191) 20:00

It’s been steadily down­hill for Getty (An­disiwe Dweba) since she scored a pro­mo­tion at #hash­tag World in March and got her­self into a moun­tain of debt shortly af­ter. The no­to­ri­ous loan­shark she owed cash to wound up dead at the hands of Getty’s sis­ter Lucy (Manaka Ranaka) in June af­ter a vi­o­lent con­fronta­tion and while the sis­ters cov­ered up the mur­der, the guilt has driven Getty to drink her life away – un­til a fa­mil­iar face re­turns and makes mat­ters worse.

“This is her low­est point in terms of the drink­ing,” An­disiwe ex­plains. Getty con­tin­ues on the slip­pery slope un­til her booze buddy Wandile (Chi Mhende) tries to knock some sense into her on Mon­day 22 Au­gust but with no luck. “Getty’s hav­ing too much fun to re­alise that she may be on the road to al­co­holism,” An­disiwe says. “She’s do­ing any­thing to for­get about ev­ery­thing – debt, mur­der and her failed re­la­tion­ship with per­fect Max (Thono Modipa) a few months ago.” Getty ig­nores Wandile’s warn­ing about Mrekza.

BLAST FROM THE PAST

While at Lucy’s she­been on Thurs­day 25 Au­gust, Getty runs into Mrekza (Kope Mak­gae), her ex that we haven’t seen be­fore. “She has a dirty past in terms of the guys she dated when she was liv­ing a wild life­style,” says An­disiwe. “Mrekza’s edge is what at­tracts her to him again.” Wandile fig­ures as much and im­me­di­ately warns Getty against her new “friend”, but lit­tle do either f them know how big a role Mrekza is about to play in Getty’s life…
