A changed man?
Denton uses the bible to get Paul to testify at his parole hearing.
Paul helping Denton is going to cost him dearly. Weekdays SABC3 (*193) 19:30
Life has blossomed for businessman Paul (Justin Strydom) since he was freed from prison in 2013 – he is the CFO of Kings Casino and he’s won back the love of his life, sisterin-law Analine (Rolanda Marais). But things are still tricky, what with gangboss convict Denton (Terence Bridgett) calling Paul every day, begging Paul to testify at his parole hearing.
LETTING GO OF THE PAST
Denton insists that he’s changed. “He tells Paul that with the help of Father Joshua, who was Paul’s confidanté while he was in prison, Denton has seen the light and he’s now walking the path of truth and redemption. Or is he?” Terence teases. On Thursday 18 August, Denton reaches out to Paul one last time, but Paul still has reservations. “He’s not sure that Denton’s claim to finding Jesus is true, but he knows what Father Joshua did for him and believes that he could’ve also helped Denton. He believes that God can change anyone’s heart, no matter how evil they are,” Justin reveals. But it looks like Paul’s being played… Denton gives Paul one last call in the hopes of being freed.
BOTHERED & BETRAYED
Paul makes up his mind on Friday 19 August, ready to give Denton a chance with the condition that he won’t lie for Denton. Monday 22 August sees Analine excited to tell Paul that her divorce is final but Paul interrupts her, telling her that he testified at Denton’s hearing. Bad move! As soon as Analine processes the news, she tears into Paul, telling him that this is the worst thing he’s done to her and she storms off.
Justin says that Paul knows Denton was responsible for Analine’s son Marcus (Kiran Prigge) dying in 2015, but helping Denton isn’t about keeping Analine happy. “Denton arranged the kidnapping and Marcus didn’t get his life-saving medication because of Denton. This is what makes it hard for Paul. It’s not about the woman he loves; this is about doing what he believes is right. He has to serve God’s calling.”
