TV Plus (South Africa) - - 7DE LAAN -

Wed­nes­day 26 April is D-Day for Vince (Jac­ques Blig­naut) and he will find out if he can play a part in his son Christo­pher’s (Jiph­tael Langeveldt) life. The judge pre­pares to de­liver her ver­dict af­ter me­di­a­tion failed in mid April when Vince couldn’t reach a com­pro­mise with Christo­pher’s mom Ce­cile (Chan­tal Stan­field) and it’s not go­ing to sit well with Vince.


Ce­cile’s lawyer Lesedi (KB Mot­si­lanyane) called Vi­vian ( Vinette Ebrahim, who also plays Vince’s step­mom Char­maine) to the wit­ness stand on Tues­day 25 April. But in­stead of lash­ing out at Vince and cost­ing him ac­cess to Chris, Vi­vian strangely only has good things to say about him and that con­fuses ev­ery­one, in­clud­ing Char­maine who’s told bluntly that “you owe me” as her twin walks out of court.

Un­ex­pect­edly, the judge up­holds Ce­cile’s cus­tody but Vince ex­plodes as the ver­dict is read out. He lets rip with years of frus­tra­tion of not see­ing his son and the judge throws him be­hind bars to cool off overnight. Vince’s lawyer brother Xan­der (Theodore Jan­tjies) vis­its Ce­cile on Wed­nes­day 26 April to ap­peal to her to let his brother see Christo­pher. Chan­tal says that af­ter Ce­cile lis­tens to Xan­der, she re­alises what she’s do­ing to her son and “she doesn’t want Christo­pher to blame her when he’s older and doesn’t have a re­la­tion­ship with the fa­ther who’s right there for him. That means she will lose him any­way”.


There’s dou­ble good news for Vince on Thurs­day 27 April – he’s freed and Xan­der tells him that Ce­cile is let­ting him see his son that same day. “He’s over the moon,” says Jac­ques. “It’s like his life sud­denly makes sense and he has a new­found re­spect for Ce­cile af­ter all they have been through. But there is some­one who’s not all that pleased with this de­vel­op­ment – Vince’s wife Bonita (Hilde­gardt Whites). On Mon­day 1 may, Vince no­tices that she’s avoid­ing every chance to see Christo­pher “and it wor­ries him,” says Jac­ques. “He re­alises that it’s dif­fi­cult, as they don’t have kids and Chris is the prod­uct of a fling,” but is some­thing else both­er­ing her?

Vince blows his top in court. Vince’s wife Bonita (top) and Ce­cile are be­hav­ing strangely.
