Baby, I’m back

Run­away groom Da­mon Brad­bury is back for love and re­venge… but mostly love.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - SCANDAL! -

Da­mon (Craig Ur­bani) fled his flashy high-so­ci­ety wed­ding to Yvonne Thebe (Kgo­motso Christo­pher) on Thurs­day 9 Fe­bru­ary with his rep­u­ta­tion in tat­ters and his jilted bride weep­ing and gnash­ing her teeth in rage. And the cops were hot on his heels thanks to some forged pa­pers im­pli­cat­ing him in a crooked arms deal that sneaky Siseko Langa (Hlomla Dan­dala), his ri­val for Yvonne’s heart, got Romeo (Hun­gani Ndlovu) to forge. All those busi­ness con­nec­tions he’d in­vited to show off in front of gos­siped up a storm and every me­dia out­let in South Africa (in­clud­ing tv­plus) rev­elled in the shock­ing story and pic­tures. But when Da­mon re­turns “huff­ing and puff­ing” on Wed­nes­day 26 April, he puts fam­ily first. Craig re­veals that “the first thing on his mind is to re­con­nect with Yvonne and his sis­ter Layla (Natasha Suther­land)”.

HONEY, I’M HOME!

Da­mon plays it smart to avoid hav­ing the door slammed in his face on Thurs-day 4 May. “He re­turns wor­ried that he will find Yvonne in a heap on the floor pin­ing for him. He bribes the ho­tel’s front desk and when she walks in, he’s ly­ing on her bed, like, ‘Ta- dah!’” Craig laughs. “She goes from shock, to ex­cite­ment to see him too, to anger,” he adds. Bat­tling his own guilt, Da­mon doesn’t re­alise how strangely sub­dued Yvonne’s re­sponse is. “Had she had a clean slate, she re­ally would have milked that. But be­cause she has things that she needs to make sure stay hid­den, she might not make him pay as dearly as she might have,” hints Craig.

OP­POR­TU­NITY KNOCKS

Af­ter he’s es­caped Yvonne’s clutches, Da­mon tells Layla that he’s back in town to find out who framed him and why… and on Mon­day 8 May Da­mon con­fronts his first sus­pect. But he’s even more in­vested in fix­ing things with Layla and his nephew Quinton (Brighton Ngoma) – by in­vest­ing in NFH. “It’s a good in­vest­ment to re­gain his name as a good busi­ness­man, but he also sees it as an op­por­tu­nity to clear his name with the peo­ple who mat­ter,” says Craig. If only Da­mon knew that his trust in at least one of those “peo­ple who mat­ter” has been sadly mis­placed…

Yvonne’s ex­pres­sion­less face speaks vol­umes. Da­mon’s in town and into his ex-fi­ancée’s bed.
