Layla’s (Natasha Suther­land) in­ner mama bear started growl­ing the mo­ment she saw Yvonne (Kgomotso Christo­pher) cosy up to her son Quinton (Brighton Ngoma). “Layla has beef with Yvonne and she wants lever­age. So when Layla spots Yvonne with a brief­case and it drops and Layla sees the money, she gets sus­pi­cious,” says Natasha. So when Din­tle (Ma­paseka Koe­tle) came to Layla to tat­tle on Yvonne on Wed­nes­day 16 May, Layla set the lit­tle mis­chief maker to spy on Yvonne. But you know what they say: if you want some­thing done right, do it your­self – as Layla does on Thurs­day 24 May. “You can’t miss an episode as there are so many twists and turns to this,” says Natasha glee­fully. “It’s who is spy­ing on who, and who knows who is spy­ing on who… and who knows who knows who is spy­ing on who!”


“I ask Din­tle to spy for me, but I am not at all happy with the in­for­ma­tion. She is a use­less spy. That in­spires me to go to the lengths that Layla is pre­pared to go to,” ex­plains Natasha. But what Layla ends up do­ing sets sparks fly­ing be­tween her, Din­tle and Yvonne on Thurs­day 31 May. “I’d like to be­lieve that I would never cross that line. Yvonne would do ex­actly the same thing – not that that’s a jus­ti­fi­ca­tion for break­ing the law or in­vad­ing some­one’s pri­vacy,” says Natasha. “It’s quite a bold step for Layla and I love the fact that they are push­ing her into dark, murky ter­ri­tory, so she isn’t squeaky clean or sit­ting to one side where it’s safe.”


The con­fronta­tion is one of those spe­cial don’t-miss mo­ments, with all three women in each other’s faces. “Yvonne’s en­ergy is very like a street fighter, very fiery and edgy, while Layla is this very cool ice queen. And then there’s Din­tle. It’s so bril­liant of the writ­ers to get these three highly com­plex women in a room to­gether in a way where they are ei­ther go­ing to kill each other or have to work to­gether to sort some­thing out,” says Natasha. Some shock­ing truths are com­ing out in this fight…

It’s a three-way brawl be­tween icy Layla (left), ditzy Din­tle and fiery Yvonne (right).
