The Oc­to­ber house has been deathly quiet since Jerome (Danny Ross) passed away in April fol­low­ing a car crash and his sis­ter Nicci (Ger­wen Si­mon) moved to the US for work. But it’s been a lit­tle live­lier since Zoe (Lau­ren Joseph) moved in on Mon­day 22 May. She is Ian’s (Ab­duragh­maan Adams) niece but there’s some­thing sus­pi­cious about her stay.


“Zoe had a tough up­bring­ing,” ex­plains Lau­ren. “Her dad was an al­co­holic, like Grampa Oc­to­ber, but she tried to make some­thing of her life and worked on a cruise ship.” She is liv­ing with the Oc­to­bers un­til the next liner comes along but Ian’s wife Brid­gette (Denise New­man) is scep­ti­cal. While she chalks it down to an over-ac­tive imag­i­na­tion, Brid­gette puts her thoughts aside and starts bond­ing with Zoe from Wednesday 24 May.

“It’s un­der­stand­able,” says Lau­ren. “Brid­gette misses her kids and with Zoe here now, the house feels less empty.” Lee-Ann (Por­tia Joel) sees what’s go­ing on and warns her sis­ter Brid­gette later on Wednesday 24 May that Zoe will never re­place Jerome or Nicci and that she shouldn’t get too at­tached to Zoe, who could leave at any time. But Zoe’s lov­ing life in Ruiter­bosch and on Mon­day 29 May she boasts about her “lux­ury ac­com­mo­da­tion” to her new pals at Suidooster Prop­er­ties, ar­chi­tect Tim (Marco Spaumer) and re­cep­tion­ist Danni ( Vashti Prins). Suidooster Prop­er­ties boss Ian isn’t pleased when he hears what Zoe’s say­ing and he starts ques­tion­ing his niece’s in­ten­tions. “Ian thinks that she is just af­ter his money and he wants to find out the truth,” ex­plains Ab­duragh­maan.


Ian and Brid­gette con­front Zoe on Tues­day 31 May and ask her why she re­ally showed up. “Zoe is up­set and stunned by the in­ter­ro­ga­tion and can’t be­lieve that they think she’s be­ing de­ceit­ful,” says Lau­ren. She threat­ens to pack her bags and leave if that’s what they want. But af­ter a tense few days, they for­get the mat­ter and on Mon­day 5 June they make peace, followed by a “make-up” braai at the Oc­to­ber house on Tues­day 6 June. Every­thing’s go­ing well un­til Zoe gets an emer­gency phonecall. All that Lau­ren will hint about the mys­te­ri­ous call is that “the news Zoe gets could wreck her plans”. Given that mak­ing Ian an­gry isn’t the wis­est thing to do, could he be be­hind the call to get Zoe out of their lives?

Is Zoe (right) hid­ing some­thing from her un­cle Ian and aunt Brid­gette?
