Getting out of hand
Lonely Lerato is quick to rekindle her relationship with her one-time fling Sizwe, and Niki’s walking on eggshells around Suffocate after murdering his brother Themba. Puleng is devastated by Themba’s dis-appearing act, not knowing that he’s dead, and Suffocate heads to his sangoma to get to the bottom of his family’s bad luck. Suffo is told to investigate the paternity of Puleng’s baby, and Lungile and Bongi take a quick holiday before planning their wedding.
Lerato wants to learn more about Sizwe the person after he moves to Joburg to be with her but she’s not expecting to meet his daughter. Niki plans her vow renewal with Suffo, who’s put Puleng in his rear-view mirror for good, but then he learns the truth about Puleng’s baby. Suffo puts the brakes on his vow renewal and does a U-turn about Puleng, while Mapula and Sabelo fight when their sister Dineo is rushed to hospital.
Suffo bursts through Puleng’s frontdoor and stuns her with the truth: he’s the father of her baby. Mapulais disappointed by Sabelo’s irresponsible behaviour and abandoning them, and Lerato confides in Bongi about her troubled relationship with Sizwe’s daughter. Sindiswa wants to kick the orphans out her house, and Suffocate tries to fix things with Puleng.
Flavia’s back and she wants revenge on her shady ex-business partner David, and Reneilwe is excited when Lerato reveals the release date for Renei’s new album. Cuba’s out to try her luck again at winning Kop’s heart, and Lungile is irritated that Bongi’s celebrity status is interfering in their wedding plans and he asks Lerato for help.
With her tracks getting airplay, Renei is sucked into the celebrity lifestyle and ignores Kop’s advice to take it easy. Lerato and Lungile’s secret affair leaves Lerato tired of sneaking around behind everyone’s backs, and Flavia’s plan will get rid of David for good but she’s not willing to pull the trigger herself. Meanwhile, Emmanuel gets into the taxi business and tries to help Kop launch his taxi empire, and after some introspection, Lerato feels ashamed of her interest in Lungile but he stops her before she can confess their affair to his fiancée Bongi.
There’s more love trouble for Niki and Suffocate. Lungile’s caught in the middle of his lies too.
