Alexa’s (Ca­rina Nel) fugi­tive lookalike Amanda (also played by Ca­rina) is back and made a bee­line for her ex-fi­ancé Justin’s (Dann-Jaques Mou­ton) place at the end of May. Justin hides her, aware that the cops are prob­a­bly on their way. But he has a plan to save Amanda.

UN­LAW­FUL HELP­ING HAND

She’s still on the run af­ter shoot­ing Justin’s then- girl­friend Alexa in the arm in March. Justin helped her es­cape the first time and Ca­rina says that “her in­ten­tions are hon­est”. Amanda re­alised that she was wrong and wants Justin back… if he can for­give her. “She just wants to be with the man she loves,” adds the ac­tress.

Justin was sus­pi­cious of her re­turn, but like Amanda, he’s still in love – and he re­alises on Fri­day 9 June that she is “the one”. He’s de­ter­mined to res­cue her and there’s only on per­son to talk to, since lawyer Xan­der (Theo Jan­tjies) will turn her in and An­dré (Mar­cus Muller) is dat­ing Alexa. So it’s off to Lesedi (KB Mot­si­lanyane) later on Fri­day 9 June to see if she can help with his “friend’s” prob­lem.

EMO­TIONAL UPS & DOWNS

But there’s bad news for Justin – Lesedi sug­gests that his “friend” turn her­self in. Later that night, on Fri­day 9 June, Lesedi vis­its Justin af­ter fig­ur­ing out that he’s har­bour­ing a fugi­tive – and she bumps into Amanda, who Ca­rina says is “dead-scared that Lesedi will turn her in”. She doesn’t though and for a shock­ing rea­son. “Lesedi of­fers her help… but they need to do her a favour,” ex­plains Ca­rina. And it’s got some­thing to do with busi­ness­man Chris Wel­man (David Rees).

RE­VENGE PLAN

“Lesedi was told the truth about her link to Chris [on Wednesday 7 June],” says KB. “Chris isn’t her bi­o­log­i­cal dad as his wife Mari­aan (Dei­dre Wol­huter) had sus­pected in May. Lesedi’s fa­ther Ja­cob [Pa­trick Shai] grew up on the Wel­man farm and was sent to prison for mur­der. But it turns out Ja­cob was in­no­cent – Chris was the killer.” Lesedi wants re­venge and needs help. Justin and Amanda agree and on Tues­day 13 June, Lesedi hands them pa­per­work to get out of town. Justin re­signs at mar­ket­ing com­pany Bruyn­waves and tells his brother Vince (Jac­ques Blig­naut) that he’s leav­ing. Later that night, Lesedi’s plan kicks off when she vis­its Chris – and she’s not alone.

Justin’s in a tight spot but he’s go­ing to help Amanda.

Lesedi’s help has a price.
