Soapie vil­lains don’t come dodgier than David Genaro (Jamie Bartlett). But like ev­ery other TV bad­die, David is head­ing for trou­ble when his past comes call­ing. Roberto and his pris­oner wife Flavia (Jose Domingo and Gabriella Cir­illo) want re­venge for David dup­ing them out of their il­le­gal meat syn­di­cate on Wednesday 7 June and they have a se­cret weapon: a girl named Pearl (Petronella Tshuma).


“There’s an im­me­di­ate at­trac­tion when she walks into David’s club Zer011 later on Wednesday 7 June,” ex­plains Jamie. “And although their age dif­fer­ence is awk­ward, there’s an in­tense at­trac­tion. David’s never felt this way; it’s like he is see­ing him­self in her,” ex­plains Jamie. Flavia got chat­ting to fel­low con­vict Andisa (Tina Jaxa) in late May and they found that they have some­one in com­mon: David. Andisa is al­most fin­ished her sen­tence and wants to tell David about his daugh­ter and Flavia has of­fered to help – Pearl must just con­tact Roberto. By Wednesday 7 June, job­less Pearl has been talked into se­duc­ing David, un­aware of who he is.


“It’s clear that Pearl wants to get into bed with David – that’s her mis­sion,” says Jamie, whose char­ac­ter is smit­ten with the young woman. But he should count his lucky stars that he sur­rounds him­self with equally shady friends – on Mon­day 12 June, David’s busi­ness part­ner Niki (Nolo Phiri) sus­pects that Pearl might be hang­ing onto David to steal his money. And that’s half her money. “Niki warns David,” says Jamie. “She’s used to his full at­ten­tion and now he only has eyes for Pearl.” What’s that say­ing again, about how it takes one to know one?


David knows that Niki has a tal­ent for spot­ting liars but he doesn’t have to look far for the truth. It comes look­ing for him – lit­er­ally. David gets a sur­prise vis­i­tor on Mon­day 19 June when his con­vict ex-lover Andisa shows up and drops a bomb­shell on him. “He’s con­fused and shocked and dis­turbed,” ex­plains the ac­tor. “David took pity on Pearl af­ter she told him that her mom was in prison and she didn’t have a fa­ther.” It isn’t of­ten that he’s left speechless, but wait ’til David finds out who tried to get him to sleep with his daugh­ter. There won’t be any­where for Flavia and Roberto to hide…

Andisa has a shock rev­e­la­tion for her ex. David is turn­ing on the charm to se­duce Pearl.
