Sthoko (In­no­cent Sadiki) thought that mov­ing back with her fam­ily in Tur­floop af­ter leav­ing her abu­sive, rich hus­band Den­nis (Clevy Sek­gala) in early Jan 2016 would help her get back on her feet, but now “she thinks that leav­ing Den­nis was a mis­take. She blames her­self for her failed mar­riage,” says In­no­cent. “She met Den­nis when she was young and feels that she never grew up enough in the mar­riage for it to work.” Sthoko takes out her frus­tra­tions on her sib­lings Kwaito and Pretty (Cle­ment Moasa and Ler­ato Marabe) on Thursday 30 March and they want to make her pay. Kwaito gets ammo on Tues­day 4 April when he over­hears Sthoko mak­ing plans on the phone to meet up with Den­nis and im­me­di­ately tells their mom MaN­tuli (Dieket­seng Mnisi) in the hopes of caus­ing trou­ble.

LET HIM GO

The Seakamela fam­ily aren’t ready to for­give Den­nis for the dam­age he did to Sthoko and on Wednesday 5 April, they try to talk her into cut­ting all ties with him. “But no one – not even her fam­ily – know Sthoko as well as Den­nis,” ex­plains In­no­cent. Be­cause of this, Den­nis knows ex­actly how to worm his way back into her heart and on Thursday 6 April he in­vites her to church with him. “He also tricks her into think­ing that he cares about her by giv­ing her money… her other weak­ness,” In­no­cent says. It seems to be work­ing be­cause she agrees to a date with Den­nis on Fri­day 7 April.

LOVE IS BLIND

Sthoko keeps the date se­cret from the fam­ily, es­pe­cially from her mother and from Cle­ment (Vusi Leremi), her son with Den­nis. “MaN­tuli doesn’t want to see her daugh­ter hu­mil­i­ated and hurt again. And Sthoko knows that,” re­veals In­no­cent. But Den­nis’s pow­ers of per­sua­sion are strong and on Mon­day 10 April, Den­nis tells Sthoko that they should get back to­gether. “He doesn’t care what his mother-in-law thinks. He wants what’s his back,” In­no­cent adds.

Cle­ment finds out about his par­ents’ pos­si­ble re­union later that day and “he is up­set be­cause he knows how ruth­less his dad can be, es­pe­cially to­wards his mom. Like MaN­tuli, he doesn’t want to see her in that sit­u­a­tion ever again. He’s also not keen on the idea of mov­ing back in with them.” On Tues­day 11 April, Cle­ment tells his mom in no un­cer­tain terms that he’s not go­ing back to live with Den­nis and sud­denly Sthoko finds her­self hav­ing to choose be­tween her ex and her son, who’s “the most im­por­tant thing in her life”, In­no­cent hints.

MaN­tuli can’t be­lieve what Sthoko’s done. Sthoko’s plan is go­ing to an­noy the whole fam­ily.
