Dad’s the devil

Angie’s fa­ther brings a scan­dalous se­cret to Hori­zon Deep.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - ISIDINGO -

Lawyer An­gelique (Shan­non Esra) is stunned on Tues­day 22 Novem­ber when her e dad Con­rad (Deon Coet­zee) ar­rives in The Deep. He’s there for his drug-smug­gling con­vict grand­daugh­ter Daniella’s (Shamilla Miller) press con­fer­ence and wher­ever Con­rad is, trou­ble is sure to fol­low. But is Angie pre­pared for it?

CON­RAD THE CON

“Con­rad and Angie have a com­plex re­la­tion­ship,” Shan­non ex­plains. “He’s al­ways been in­volved in ‘new busi­ness ven­tures’ and most turned out to be scams and when Con­rad was in trou­ble, Angie tried to help but it strained their fa­ther- daugh­ter re­la­tion­ship. At this point, Angie is frus­trated when she sees Con­rad.” De­mand­ing to know his in­ten­tions, Angie con­fronts her fa­ther on Wed­nes­day 23 Novem­ber but she’s given a fee­ble “I’m here to sup­port my grand­daugh­ter” ex­cuse. Not con­vinced, Angie starts dig­ging and it’s not long be­fore she gets her an­swer…

THE TRUTH HURTS

Con­rad con­fesses on Thurs­day 24 Novem­ber that he gave Daniella the drug pack­age to take through the air­port in Oc­to­ber 2016. “Angie’s dev­as­tated to hear this and feels hurt,” says Shan­non. “Con­rad has com­pro­mised her sit­u­a­tion and the first thing Angie thinks is ‘how can she mend the mess Daniella is in?’” While Con­rad tries to clean up his act on Fri­day 25 Novem­ber by stay­ing on the side­lines and sup­port­ing his daugh­ter and grand­daugh­ter, Angie is prep­ping for Daniella’s last shot at bail. “There’s tons of pres­sure on Angie to get Daniella out of jail be­cause she sees Daniella as her own child. Angie’s also strug­gling with her emo­tions to­wards Con­rad,” Shan­non re­veals.

FRIENDS & FOES

Over­whelmed, Angie searches for a shoul­der to cry on on Fri­day 2 De­cem­ber – and she finds it in Hori­zon Deep crime­boss Nina Zamdela (Khabon­ina Qubeka). Shan­non ex­plains that “Nina un­der­stands Angie’s sit­u­a­tion and she sym­pa­thises. She helps Angie fig­ure out this chal­leng­ing time and how to avoid fu­ture bad choices, like help­ing Con­rad out of his prob­lems”. One bad choice Angie can’t seem to avoid is jour­nal­ist Calvin (Mau­rice Paige), who wants to know on Tues­day 6 De­cem­ber why she is sud­denly so close to the Zamde­las. And Angie keep­ing quiet only pushes him to dig more into Daniella’s story…

Jailed Daniella is at the cen­tre of the ac­tion.
