Aspir­ing ath­lete Isaac (Sipho Nkuna) has a lot to prove after his drug tests came back pos­i­tive on Tues­day 13 De­cem­ber. “Isaac be­lieves that he was framed by trainer Greg (Jac­ques Bes­sen­ger) and ri­val run­ner Mack (Tshepo Ra­ma­sia),” says Sipho. “Isaac is de­ter­mined to get his re­venge!”


His plan un­folds on Mon­day 26 De­cem­ber when Isaac speaks to a jour­nal­ist [who’s never shown on­screen] and says Sipho, “Isaac is de­ter­mined to de­fame Greg and Mack.” He’s been sus­pended from train­ing at the ASA and his plans fall apart when the jour­nal­ist tells him that he’s “an un­re­li­able source” and that Isaac’s info “can’t be trusted”.


Frus­trated, Isaac breaks into Greg’s house to find ev­i­dence on Mon­day 26 De­cem­ber. Be­fore go­ing ahead with his plans though, Isaac phones his fake girl­friend Eshe (Swankie Mafoko), who’s go­ing to marry him so that he can stay in SA, to tell her about his plans. “Eshe is an ex-cop and she’s fu­ri­ous that Isaac spoke to the me­dia as it could com­pro­mise their own in­ves­ti­ga­tion,” says Sipho. “She thinks that Isaac shouldn’t have reached out to any­body and that he should be more strate­gic with info.” After their heated con­ver­sa­tion, Eshe de­mands that Isaac meet her later that day but he doesn’t show up. Worried, Eshe con­fides in ASA man­ager Botho (Moliehli Makobane) about Botho’s plans and Botho starts a search.


Isaac’s fury at be­ing framed for dop­ing is go­ing to land him in harm’s way. But the search is in vain. On Tues­day 27 De­cem­ber, ASA boss Jus­tice (Saint Se­seli) re­veals that Isaac’s body was found by Jus­tice’s youngest daughter Ashanti (Shal­ima Mkongo). “It’s ter­ri­ble news, es­pe­cially for Jus­tice, who’s de­ter­mined to find out who mur­dered his ath­lete,” says Sipho. It turns out that Greg and Mack are gen­uinely shocked by the news and Greg ac­cuses Mack of mur­der, think­ing that greed and de­sire to be the best ath­lete in ASA got the bet­ter of Mack. Ashanti over­hears the pair’s fight on Tues­day 27 De­cem­ber, fling­ing ac­cu­sa­tions, and she de­cides to use it as black­mail – and she has no is­sues point­ing that out to them ei­ther…
