There’s noth­ing bet­ter to boost a girl’s con­fi­dence than at­ten­tion from the new guy in town and Namhla (Thuli Phon­golo) is en­joy­ing ev­ery sec­ond she gets with her new pal Thabiso (Matli Mo­hapeloa). “But she’s put him in the friend­zone – she doesn’t want a ro­man­tic re­la­tion­ship. And he’s on the same page,” says Thulisile, be­cause on Thurs­day 2 March, Thabiso also cosies up to newly sin­gle Nol­wazi (Thando Tha­bethe).

IN HARM’S WAY

Fresh out of prison, Thabiso is out for re­venge and he’s got his sights set on Fana (Mn­qobi Duma), his lawyer who couldn’t get him off his rape charges. So now Thabiso is hop­ing to use the women in Fana life – his sis­ter Namhla and one-night-stand Nol­wazi – to get back at him. On Mon­day 6 March, Fana is fum­ing when he spots Nol­wazi chat­ting to Thabiso at gym. “In Fe­bru­ary, she told Fana she wasn’t look­ing for any­thing se­ri­ous, but now it looks like she may have moved on,” Thando says.

But it’s more than ir­ri­ta­tion though, as Fana knows about Thabiso’s crime his­tory, so he’s gen­uinely con­cerned for her safety. When he tells Nol­wazi that Thabiso is a con­victed rapist, “She gets the shock of her life!” says Thando. “She blames Fana for not telling her sooner and she’s scared that she could be­come Thabiso’s next vic­tim.”

THABISO’S TRICKS

But at the same time, Fana’s sis­ter Namhla is un­aware of Thabiso’s past with women and the two have din­ner again at her apart­ment on Thurs­day 9 March. Fana ar­rives to find Namhla chang­ing tops af­ter she spilt a drink and he im­me­di­ately jumps to con­clu­sions, think­ing that she’s fall­ing for Thabiso. He re­acts heav­ily and that’s ex­actly what Thabiso was hop­ing for so that he can now set the sib­lings up against each other.

Fana warns Thabiso to stay away from his lit­tle sis­ter – and out of his life, Thulisile says. Thabiso obliges and keeps his dis­tance from Namhla for now, but then the fo­cus of his wicked re­venge plan turns back to Nol­wazi. On Fri­day 10 March, she re­alises that Thabiso is stalk­ing her and as they al­ready have a volatile re­la­tion­ship, “Nol­wazi be­lieves it’s all Fana’s fault for get­ting her into this mess,” Thando ex­plains. Thabiso can tick an­other box on his re­venge plan – cre­at­ing fric­tion be­tween the two ex-lovers. “The only thing Nol­wazi can do now is pro­tect her­self and hope it’s enough.”
