Grace lays charges against Cesar, and Yvonne goes running to Neo when she bumps into assassination victim John Phillips (aka JP aka Phillips, played by Dan Robbertse) in Qs. “JP” has a strange explanation for his miraculous reappearance but Neo sends his henchmen running for their guns when “JP” starts asking questions. Romeo realises that he has something to hold over Neo’s head, and one of Neo’s little friends sends an incriminating photograph featuring JP to Hlengiwe.
A gentleman comes to the rescue when Dintle lands herself and Phindi in hot water. Omphile helps Mary, who has hearts in her eyes for Chumani, and Javas is head over heels too, but the woman of his dreams is hanging around Mangi (Kagiso Modupe).
Hlengiwe’s investigation uncovers the link between JP and one of Newtown’s most dangerous men. Mjomane pulls a fast one, and Hlengiwe starts circling The Newtonian hotel like a buzzard. Boniswa questions Neo about Yvonne, and Hlengiwe has her own awkward questions about the hotel robbery. A shocking couple is expecting a baby, Boniswa sets a PI on Yvonne’s trail, and JP’s corpse threatens to make an ill-timed reappearance.
Dintle and Phindi are thrilled to see their dresses in print but Quinton has a bone to pick with how they got there. Mary lands in the fire when she can’t find a date for Lindiwe and Kgosi is keen to fan the flames. Ingrid and Cameron hit a rough patch and they’re not the only couple in trouble when Ingrid stumbles across a shocking profile on a dating site. Gloria and Zinzile’s fight turns viral, war erupts between their families after a secret slips out, and Lindiwe’s tummy feels funny. Uh-oh…
Kgosi has a little baby secret. A murder scene gets a do-over to throw a nosy person off the scent, and all the plotting takes its toll on Romeo. Damon has a fascinating offer for Boniswa, and Siseko wants to divorce one of his wives, unaware that both have betrayed him. Mangi starts a new romance, Quinton invites a lover to move in but she wants Dintle to move out, and Quinton is put out when Layla’s old lover comes back.
Last time we saw JP, Neo put a bullet through his head. Yvonne sees a ghost when “JP” rocks up at Qs.
