Lawyer-turned- con­vict Flavia (Gabriella Cir­illo) is des­per­ate to get revenge on David Genaro (Jamie Bartlett) for steal­ing their meat business from un­der her nose. She’s tried just about ev­ery­thing to ruin his life ex­cept the one thing he’ll never see com­ing. On Wed­nes­day 5 July, she con­vinces David’s newly found daugh­ter Pearl (Petronella Tshuma) to mur­der him. “At first, the plan was to de­stroy his busi­nesses, but now she’s going for the kill,” ex­plains Gabriella, whose char­ac­ter blames David for let­ting her rot in jail. “She’s an­gry! Flavia is driven by her emo­tions and she thinks that David’s re­spon­si­ble for her be­ing in jail while he takes over the streets of Joburg,” says Gabriella.

THE FALL

Pearl is in a sticky sit­u­a­tion on Thurs­day 6 July when Flavia’s hubby and part­nerin- crime Roberto (Jose Domingo) gives her an ul­ti­ma­tum: kill David or we’ll come af­ter your ex-con mom Andiswa ( Tina Jaxa). “It’s too late for Pearl to back out now,” says Gabriella. With Pearl feel­ing trapped by the death threats, she tries to push David away on Mon­day 10 July to make it eas­ier when she fi­nally kills him. Gabriella ex­plains that “Flavia ex­pects Pearl to for­get about her bond with David. She warns Pearl against his gangster ways and hopes that this will get Pearl to dis­like him”. But Andiswa learnt about Flavia’s un­der­handed deal­ings in jail and she’s Pearl’s trail. Later that day, she tries to reach out to her daugh­ter. “Flavia uses David’s ab­sence to get into Pearl’s head to fin­ish the job. It’s been a long time com­ing and she wants him dead al­ready,” adds the ac­tress.

BLOOD TIES

David is also on Pearl’s tail on Tues­day 11 July when he no­tices her jumpy be­hav­iour and he goes into in­ves­tiga­tive mode. He fol­lows her around to find out if he’s right and “he’s get­ting close! David is in­tu­itive and wants ev­i­dence to prove that Pearl is work­ing with Flavia and Roberto,” says Gabriella. While Pearl’s be­come David’s rea­son to live, she’s also be­come a rea­son for him to die and on Thurs­day 13 July he vows to pro­tect her against any dan­ger. “No one sees this com­ing. David’s will­ing to give ev­ery­thing up for Pearl and that makes her re­think her mur­der plot,” ex­plains Gabriella. Pearl re­grets get-ting into part­ner­ship with Flavia and Roberto who hired her in early May 2017 to se­duce David but “Flavia is livid that it’s tak­ing so long to mur­der David. She’s scared that her schem­ing will never hap­pen,” says Gabriella.

GET IT OVER WITH

Pearl is los­ing the plot and hes­i­tant to kill David on Tues­day 18 July. Un­like her dodgy dad, pulling the trig­ger doesn’t come eas­ily to her and she’s ter­ri­fied to get blood on her hands when she gets the chance later that day. “Pearl is con­fused. She’s bat­tling her bond with her new­found fa­ther and one with her mom,” says the ac­tress. Pearl has been wait­ing for the per­fect mo­ment to get David alone in his of­fice with a gun in her hand but “it’s com­pli­cated for Pearl, She’s scared that she might lose the fam­ily that she’s al­ways wanted and pulling the trig­ger could ruin ev­ery­thing,” teases Gabriella.

Flavia and Roberto are on the loose and they want pay­back – in blood! Andiswa could be the rea­son David sur­vives an­other mur­der at­tempt.

Pearl doesn’t know if she’s ready to kill.

David won’t see it com­ing, if his would-be as­sas­sin pulls the trig­ger.
