Of­fi­cer Mondli (Them­binkosi Th­wala) was out walk­ing with his son Thato (Qhawe Dubazana) on Wed­nes­day 30 Novem­ber when he tripped and fell right back in love with Nosipho Xulu (Nom­pilo Ma­phu­mulo), de­spite their bit­ter break up in July 2016 when he dumped her to marry Thato’s mom Mantwa (Lungile Mt­shali). A flicker of hope from Nosipho on Tues­day 6 De­cem­ber sends Mondli rac­ing to his lawyer for a di­vorce on Wed­nes­day 7 De­cem­ber and he sets out to ro­mance Nosipho’s pants off. But love is headed for a head- on col­li­sion with his ca­reer…

Mondli takes his courage in his hands on Mon­day 12 De­cem­ber and he tells Nosipho that he’s di­vorc­ing Mantwa. “He’s afraid,” ad­mits Them­binkosi. “He be­trayed Nosipho and there’s noth­ing he can do to change that. He needs to be man enough to apol­o­gise. But Mondli knows that he’s go­ing to win her heart back, be­cause he knows that Nosipho loves him. He tells her that Mantwa was never his first love and that he loves Nosipho. He only mar­ried her for the child,” says Them­binkosi.

Nosipho is over the moon and by Tues­day 13 De­cem­ber she knows just how to show that she’s se­ri­ous in re­turn: by invit­ing Mondli to be her “plus one” at her new brother Ayanda’s (Kay Sibiya) wed­ding. “Mondli is ex­cited and re­lieved be­cause he knows that if she’s ask­ing him to come to the wed­ding, that means it’s a 110% get­ting back to­gether,” Them­binkosi adds.

The love­birds get just one episode to be happy though, be­cause on Mon­day 19 De­cem­ber Nosipho’s aunt Jab­ulile (Nom­pumelelo Ndlovu) es­capes her men­tal in­sti­tu­tion and asks Mondli for help – with proof that Nosipho’s mom and brother Lindiwe (Dawn Than­deka King) and Mx­olisi Xulu (Nay Maps) com­mit­ted the crime that Jab­ulile’s son Bandile (Ayanda Luthuli) is serv­ing time for: the mur­der of Nkosi­nathi Mdlet­she (Sipho Mh­longo). “He has no choice but to use Nosipho again,” Them­binkosi says. “There are few chances of the re­la­tion­ship sur­viv­ing that. That’s the prob­lem that he’s fac­ing.”

GC stakes his claim on his man and gets strict with Fik­ile af­ter Jojo gives him some busi­ness ad­vice. Ayanda re­jects the Xu­lus’ tra­di­tions, in­clud­ing im­beleko – in­tro­duc­ing his new­born child to the an­ces­tors. Sman­gele and Ayanda have bad luck at their umem­beso (when the groom’s fam­ily bring gifts to the bride’s fam­ily), and Zandile turns her nose up at the cer­e­mony. Mondli tells Nosipho that he loves her and he’s get­ting a di­vorce, while Hlengiwe warns Sman­gele to come clean about what she’s hid­ing. Sibahle crashes the wed­ding, while Mx­olisi and Sibahle con­nect. Thobile wakes up in bed next to her dream man, and the new­ly­weds are home. Mondli stands up to Lindiwe, and rings are ex­changed in front of church el­ders. Jab­ulile breaks out of the men­tal in­sti­tu­tion and begs Mondli to help her save Bandile, Sman­gele pre­tends that Buhle’s sono­gram print­out is her own, and Mx­olisi in­vites Ayanda and Sman­gele on a dou­ble date.

Mondli tells Nosipho that he wants her back.
