Siseko (Hlomla Dan­dala) might’ve forged those doc­u­ments that had dodgy Da­mon (Craig Ur­bani) ditch­ing Yvonne (Kgo­motso Christo­pher) at the al­tar on 10 Fe­bru­ary this year and flee­ing the po­lice. But there’s no smoke with­out fire and Da­mon’s scep­ti­cal nephew Quin­ton (Brighton Ngoma) is trail­ing the strong­est smoke sig­nal. They lead to the exMrs Brad­bury (Char­maine Weir-Smith), the woman who phoned Yvonne three days be­fore her wed­ding to warn her to “run as fast as you can in the op­po­site di­rec­tion”. Quin­ton is about to get a lot more than he bar­gained for!


Quin­ton re­alises that he’s a dead man if he puts a foot wrong when Jen­nifer opens her door on Wednesday 7 June. “She lives in a state of high anx­i­ety and fear, so when Quin­ton rocks up on her doorstep, she’s im­me­di­ately ap­pre­hen­sive. It’s cause for alarm that he has some­thing to do with Da­mon,” says Char­maine. “And she is a woman alone on a plot far out of Jo­han­nes­burg – her near­est neigh­bour is a kilo­me­tre away. She doesn’t know if she can trust him, so she wants to es­tab­lish, ‘Be afraid of me and don’t try to mess with me’.” Her un­mis­tak­able threat proves that this mouse can roar.


On Thurs­day 8 June, Jen­nifer decides to let Quin­ton in – in more ways than one. “She’s been so burnt by her ex­pe­ri­ence with Da­mon… he de­stroyed her life and took her money – that’s her story. But when she meets Quin­ton, her gut in­stinct is that he’s ac­tu­ally quite spe­cial. Quin­ton makes it clear from the out­set that he’s on her side be­cause he doesn’t trust Da­mon ei­ther.” And on Mon­day 19 June, Jen­nifer hands over her jack­pot: a diary full of dirty de­tails. “She is very pas­sion­ate about warn­ing peo­ple about Da­mon. She be­lieves that he is the devil in­car­nate,” Char­maine says. But the ac­tress has her own warn­ing for fans: “Is Jen­nifer right about Da­mon or is Da­mon right about Jen­nifer? You’re con­stantly kept on a knife edge. She makes some bold choices that view­ers might find a lit­tle shock­ing.” And it won’t be long be­fore Quin­ton re­alises that Jen­nifer’s look­ing for more than just a “part­ner in crime”.

Jen­nifer’s got the dirt on her ex, but it comes at a price… What doesn’t Da­mon want his nephew Quin­ton learn­ing?
