Se­cret lovers: Jill’s trap for Zakes

Ex-con Zakes wants his drug em­pire back… and his girl Jill.

“He wants to set­tle old scores. Scores with his fam­ily, ‘pro­fes­sional’ scores and per­sonal scores,” says Le­hasa Moloi of Zakes Moloi’s re­turn to town. But since be­ing re­leased from prison on Wed­nes­day 2 Novem­ber, Rev­erend Moloi’s (Owen Se­jake) son has had any­thing but an easy ride. He was hauled in by the cops for ques­tion­ing a day af­ter his re­lease, on Thurs­day 3 Novem­ber. Then he was dumped on Tues­day 15 Novem­ber by his on-off ex­part­ner Jill (Sche-laine Ben­nett) who’s now a cop, and he’s got his hands full try­ing to take down cur­rent crime king­pin Ti­tus (Daniel Hadebe) with­out Ti­tus re­al­is­ing. But first things first – he wants to sort things out with Jill…

SMOOTH OP­ER­A­TOR

“They’re not on bad terms; they’re just on the op­po­site sides of the law now,” says Le­hasa. Back in the day, Zakes and Jill were lit­er­ally part­ners in crime in the drug trade, but then Zakes was ar­rested and sent to prison for both of them. “Jill has al­ways kept an eye on Zakes even though she isn’t part of that world any­more,” the ac­tor says. “They have what I would like to call ‘an in­ter­est­ing past’ and while he wants to rekin­dle that, Jill isn’t so sure.” But that’s ex­actly what she’s go­ing to do… ex­cept it’s all a lie. Fel­low cop Gavin (Tom Fair­foot) has a plan to catch Zakes and he’s go­ing to use the ex- con’s love for Jill to get it done – he sug­gests on Mon­day 28 Novem­ber that Jill goes un­der­cover and be­come Zakes’s lover to get ev­i­dence that he’s back in il­le­gal busi­ness. “He and Jill have un­re­solved is­sues, busi­ness-wise and emo­tion­ally,” Le­hasa says, hint­ing that Zakes won’t sus­pect a thing when Jill warms up to his ad­vances on Mon­day 28 Novem­ber.

WHAT A GIRL WANTS

Jill isn’t sold com­pletely by Gavin’s plan on Wed­nes­day 30 Novem­ber but she goes ahead with the un­der­cover work any­way, Le­hasa ex­plains. “She has needs and wants. She has a ‘ type’ – Zakes – and she’s never had that in­ti­mate re­la­tion­ship. There is a hole in her life and Zakes knows this, so he will go along with it.” By Mon­day 5 De­cem­ber, the pair of ex- crim­i­nals are all loved up and Zakes can’t keep his hands off Jill, giv­ing her shoul­der mas­sages at ev­ery chance. But this will­ing­ness to be close to him af­ter their nasty split has Zakes ques­tion­ing just how trust­wor­thy Jill is…

Jill gets back to­gether with bad-guy Zakes… but it’s not what it seems.
