A changed man?

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.”
