A new Neo

Dodg­ing death was easy for mas­ter crim­i­nal Neo Mokheti but be­ing good is tough.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - SCANDAL! -

Lerumo seems to doubt daddy Neo’s good in­ten­tions. Week­days e.tv (*194) 19:30

On Friday 7 Oc­to­ber, “dead” for­mer prison drug king­pin Neo Mokheti (Jerry Mofokeng) stepped out of the shad­ows to lay claim to a stake of The New­to­nian ho­tel. Now ev­ery­one has ques­tions, from Scan­dal! fans to Neo’s son Lerumo (Tshepo Mos­ese), who found out that Neo was alive on Mon­day 10 Oc­to­ber, as well as Neo’s old prison cronies who heard of his re­turn from the grave on Tues­day 11 Oc­to­ber.

DID I DIE, THOUGH?

“Peo­ple have got wind that Neo’s com­ing back and they say to me, ‘But you died!’ And I say, ‘Woah, wait a minute. Did you at­tend my fu­neral?’” laughs Jerry mis­chie­vously. “Neo crossed one of the head guys in the prison and that man said, ‘We’ve cre­ated a mon­ster here. I will deal with him.’” Neo has been ly­ing low ever since, but his se­cret business with Yvonne Thebe (Kgo­motso Christo­pher) de­mands his re­turn. “She has been hav­ing un­der­ground deal­ings with some­body who is only known as ‘Moscow’. And it’s time for Moscow to show his face – as Neo,” re­veals Jerry. Neo’s back!

GO­ING STRAIGHT FOR MY SON

Money isn’t Neo’s only mo­ti­va­tion for rising from the grave. On Wed­nes­day 12 Oc­to­ber, he reaches out to rec­on­cile with Lerumo, which is a risk. “Lerumo’s re­spect is crit­i­cal for Neo. Cul­tur­ally, he wants to be rep­re­sented by his off­spring, but cop Lerumo also rep­re­sents the law, so Neo can’t af­ford to cross Lerumo. He’s go­ing to prove to Lerumo that he’s a changed man,” says Jerry. Some­one else will be mak­ing sure that Neo be­haves too. “Bra Fin­gers (Ron­ald Mk­wanazi) comes to warn my char­ac­ter not to go back to my ways be­cause he will dis­ci­pline me,” re­veals Jerry. And the last time Bra Fin­gers dis­ci­plined Neo, it was with a knife in his chest in Novem­ber 2014!

SO BAD AT BE­ING GOOD

Obey­ing the law is go­ing to be an uphill bat­tle for Neo. “He tries to get in­vestors and the ho­tel owner Grace’s (Batha­bile Mashigo) son says to him, ‘Look, it seems like you’re dead weight around here.’ And un­for­tu­nately he’s right! Oooh, I tell you! Grace is a lady but Romeo (Hun­gani Ndlovu), uh-uh,” chuck­les Jerry. And Neo’s plans will hang in the bal­ance af­ter Naledi Thebe (Di­neo Moeketsi) finds out that her brother’s killer is alive and walk­ing the streets on Thurs­day 20 Oc­to­ber…
