Side­lined ex- con­vict Ace (Sello Se­bot­sane) has a plan to worm his way back into his fam­ily’s life thanks to his daugh­ter Aza­nia’s (Enhle Ma­phu­mulo) new baby, who needs a liver af­ter be­ing born on Tues­day 6 June. “He’s been wait­ing for the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to win back Aza­nia and this is his chance,” says Sello, whose char­ac­ter is tested by doc­tors along with the rest of the fam­ily to be a donor match.


But first Ace will have to get past his adop­tive daugh­ter Thandi (Joanne Reyneke). Their re­la­tion­ship is strained thanks to a ter­ri­ble fam­ily se­cret – she claims he raped her but Ace de­nies it and has his own side of the story. “She will do what­ever it takes to keep him away,” ex­plains Sello. On Mon­day 12 June, Thandi makes it clear that Ace needs to stay away even though he’s a per­fect donor match. “She’s fu­ri­ous when she finds out. Thandi hates that Ace will be back in ev­ery­one’s good books. She just can’t have that,” Sello says. Know­ing full well that he can’t mess this up, Ace is on his best be­hav­iour on Thurs­day 15 June. “He is ner­vous,” Sello says, “be­cause the past, and specif­i­cally his se­cret his­tory with Thandi, keeps haunt­ing him and might de­stroy his fu­ture. And the ex- con­vict is keen to make up for lost time.”


On Fri­day 16 June, the Moswanes plan a celebratory din­ner and in­vite ev­ery­one. “Ace is happy to pick up where he left off and be part of his fam­ily life again,” says Sello. But Thandi puts a damper on the fes­tiv­i­ties by blurt­ing out the se­cret – she tells ev­ery­one that her adop­tive dad sex­u­ally as­saulted her as a teenager. “The Moswanes are beyond shocked and very con­fused,” Sello says. “They can’t be­lieve that Ace – who just did this big deed – would do some­thing like that to Thandi.”

By Mon­day 19 June, “It’s war!” Sello re­veals. “Aza­nia doesn’t want to be­lieve Thandi. She’s in dis­be­lief that her dad would do some­thing so ter­ri­ble to his daugh­ter af­ter he had just saved her new­born. She thinks that Thandi is ly­ing and this may tear the girls apart.”

Ace set­tles down to be tested as a donor – and it could fix his fam­ily prob­lems.
