Sa­lon partners GC (Khaya Dladla) and Tho­bile (Nokuthula Mabika) have stuck to­gether through ev­ery­thing from fake wed­dings to at­tempted mur­der. But GC’s tragic re­ac­tion to be­ing dis­owned by his fa­ther on Tues­day 1 August and wak­ing up to a note on his pil­low af­ter a night with his love Jojo (Siph­e­sihle Cele) on Thurs­day 3 August could ruin it all. “I feel bad for GC, I feel for both of them,” says Nokuthula. “They’ve got that sib­ling kind of love; they’ve been each other’s shoul­der through so many ob­sta­cles. It’s heart-break­ing to see this pain and nei­ther of them un­der­stand what the other is go­ing through now.”

It’s one thing for GC to shut Tho­bile out, but she can’t be­lieve her eyes when he shows up for work drunk on Fri­day 4 August. “She is dis­ap­pointed in him and how he’s tak­ing ev­ery­thing,” says Nokuthula. “And she thinks he’s en­joy­ing the at­ten­tion and now she’s over it, es­pe­cially if it com­pro­mises her job and her money. When he comes to the sa­lon drunk, he jeop­ar­dises the en­tire dig­nity of their busi­ness and their lives.”

And just when Tho­bile thought she’d seen the worst of it, she ar­rives at work on Wed­nes­day 9 August to find that the sa­lon’s locks have been changed. “That’s when things get crazy,” says Nokuthula. “He lit­er­ally fires Tho­bile and chases her out. That’s the last straw for Tho­bile. This is war for her. It’s time to move on from GC and his drama. And she tries to con­vince fel­low sa­lon part­ner Sman­gele (Sihle Nd­aba) to walk out of the sa­lon with her. GC isn’t only de­stroy­ing his life, he is de­stroy­ing theirs and ev­ery­thing they tried so hard to build. Be­cause they’re all from dis­ad­van­taged back­grounds and they’re worked so hard to be where they are.” NB! See more on p10.
