Sphe (Pearl Monama) doesn’t know which way to turn. She was roped into giv­ing the MorokaCele fam­ily an heir in Septem­ber 2016 by sleep­ing with her broth­erin-law Smanga (Moopi Moth­ibeli) af­ter learn­ing that her hubby Mazwi (Musa Ngema) was in­fer­tile. She also doesn’t know how to tell mom Nandi (Brenda Mh­longo) that her bad-guy step­dad Jack Mabaso (Vusi Kunene) is be­hind the plan. In­stead, she’s ready to end her preg­nancy on Mon­day 19 De­cem­ber by drink­ing abor­tion pills.

“Sphe and Nandi never had a tra­di­tional mother-daugh­ter bond,” Brenda ex­plains. “Nandi is try­ing to cor­rect it now, but Sphe blames Nandi for ev­ery­thing that’s hap­pen­ing and for aban­don­ing her when she needed Nandi.” On Thurs­day 8 De­cem­ber, Nandi calls the Phakades and Maba­sos to­gether to get them to sort out their griev­ances – if Jack’s not fight­ing his en­e­mies, that means he’ll have more time for her and to be a dad. Nandi also warns her son Fana (Mn­qobi Duma) on Tues­day 13 De­cem­ber to stop help­ing Jack with his war be­fore it’s too late, un­aware of just how much in­flu­ence Jack’s al­ready had.

Sphe knows that Jack is us­ing her as a chess piece in his war but she doesn’t want to tell Nandi what’s go­ing on on Wed­nes­day 14 De­cem­ber. “Nandi will freak out and de­spite their is­sues, Sphe doesn’t want to up­set or stress her mother with this kind of news,” Brenda adds. “Jack is the mas­ter in­sti­ga­tor. He’s ac­tu­ally forc­ing Sphe to get preg­nant for his own schemes.”

But Jack isn’t alone – Nandi finds out from Fana on Mon­day 19 De­cem­ber that Sphe is ready to drink abor­tion pills and Nandi lashes out at Un­cle Te­bogo (Joe Mafela) af­ter find­ing out the truth about Sphe’s hubby Mazwi tak­ing an­other wife. “Te­bogo is left fu­ri­ous on Fri­day 16 De­cem­ber af­ter Nandi con­fronts him,” ex­plains Brenda. “Nandi fights back as a mother pro­tect­ing her daugh­ter from dis­re­spect, es­pe­cially af­ter find­ing out that her son-in-law is now en­gaged to an­other woman – Nol­wazi (Thando Tha­bethe).” Brenda adds that Nandi is try­ing to build a bond with Sphe and that “it will help the fam­ily to not have se­crets and also to let Sphe know that there’s some­one on her side who’ll be there to fight for her and pro­tect her”. Namhla sets a trap on Xolelwa’s lap­top, and de­spite all he’s been though al­ready, more bad news is on the way for Wandile. There’s noth­ing worse for Jack than to be stuck in a sit­u­a­tion he can’t wrig­gle his way out of, and Lexi is forced into re­veal­ing who took Mickey’s keys. Mean­while, Zitha’s work is done and she’s ready to leave Joburg, while Daniel is stress­ing about changes to his body.

Zakes drags Lesedi off kick­ing and scream­ing, and Jack de­mands re­sults from his pro­tégé. Wandile is pretty cer­tain that he knows who stole his hor­mone med­i­ca­tion, and Namhla asks for as­sis­tance with a prob­lem. Cosmo has bad news for the Di­ales about Lebo van­ish­ing, and Sphe’s se­cret is al­most ex­posed but she man­ages to hide it from her mom just a lit­tle longer. Thu­lani hides spy cam­eras in Tshidi’s home, and Mazwi and Nol­wazi are caught in the act. Mean­while, Wandile can’t be­lieve Gog’Flo’s at­ti­tude to­wards his sit­u­a­tion, and Lesedi is on the auction block at long last. Jack’s grow­ing frus­tra­tion is the op­por­tu­nity that Tshidi’s been wait­ing for, and Sphe has a so­lu­tion for her prob­lems. Else­where, Gadaffi is prov­ing that you can’t keep a bad guy down.
