An in­no­cent at­tempt at friend­ship be­comes a trou­ble­some al­liance as Rachel and Emkay (Le­sego Marakalla and Mlungisi Mathe) join forces in the name of re­venge. The pair are dy­na­mite when it comes to schem­ing, so Tbose and Kwaito (Cor­net Mam­abolo and Clement Maosa) should be ter­ri­fied now that their two big­gest en­e­mies are work­ing as one!


As his court case ap­proaches, Emkay is des­per­ate for any way to avoid jail time for his friend Jama’s (Oros Mam­pofu) al­co­hol poi­son­ing and death in July 2016. But when he feels that his ex­girl­friend Ayanda (Pretty Ncayiyana) has be­trayed him by de­clin­ing to be a char­ac­ter wit­ness in court on Wed­nes­day 12 Oc­to­ber, he turns to Rachel with his is­sues and she’s happy to share his many woes. “At first, their friend­ship re­sulted from not hav­ing any friends, but as they dis­cuss their prob­lems and is­sues with Tbose and Kwaito, Rachel gets an idea,” re­veals Le­sego.


On Friday 14 Oc­to­ber, Rachel vol­un­teers two in­ter­est­ing pieces of info – first about Kwaito and Tbose’s mur­der charge for run­ning over her dad in 2011, and then some­thing that could swing the odds in Emkay’s favour. “She tells Emkay that she heard Ayanda telling room­mate Enhle (Natasha Tha­hane) that it was Tbose and Kwaito who went par­ty­ing with Jama and en­cour­aged his life­style and overindul­gent be­hav­iour,” says Le­sego. As wor­ried friends Tbose and Kwaito scram­ble to avoid jail af­ter be­ing made aware of the rev­e­la­tion, they seek le­gal coun­sel on Mon­day 17 Oc­to­ber and re­alise that the case could go ei­ther way. And with their crim­i­nal records, they need to worry!


But Emkay isn’t off the hook just yet and the pres­sure takes its toll on him on Tues­day 18 Oc­to­ber. “His for­mer friends are all tes­ti­fy­ing against him in court,” says Mlungisi. “To be hon­est, he is more afraid of them than they are of him, de­spite the in­for­ma­tion that he can use against them.” But on Mon­day 24 Oc­to­ber, when forced into a cor­ner, Emkay re­veals that he’ll use the in­for­ma­tion to pro­tect him­self and it dawns on Kwaito and Tbose just how pow­er­ful Emkay is with Rachel by his side. Let the mud­sling­ing be­gin!
