A mat­ter of life & death

Nina plants a bomb and takes hostages: Wade and Zoe.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - SUIDOOSTER -

Nina (Char­lene le Roux) has a new plan to pro­tect Mother Earth: she is go­ing to plant a bomb at Suidooster Prop­er­ties’ new de­vel­op­ment site – Hamerkop Vlei. She wants to teach the prop­erty busi­ness and its owner

Ian Oc­to­ber (Ab­duragh­maan Adams) a les­son be­cause she be­lieves that the de­vel­op­ment is harm­ful to na­ture. And when it seems like one of her own cronies Wade (Dean John Smith) is go­ing to expose her, Nina chooses to si­lence him by force. But Wade isn’t the only per­son who will suf­fer Nina’s wrath.


The rad­i­cal eco-ter­ror­ist is halted in her tracks when an anony­mous tip to the po­lice stops her from plant­ing the bomb on Wed­nes­day 5 De­cem­ber to ex­plode dur­ing a me­dia con­fer­ence. Nina thinks that Wade rat­ted her out and “she kid­naps him and holds him hostage,” ex­plains Char­lene. While Wade is locked up on a boat, things spi­ral out of con­trol as Nina gets down to busi­ness. On Thurs­day 6 De­cem­ber, she bumps into Wade’s ex- girl­friend

Zoe (Lau­ren Joseph) and fol­lows her, plan­ning to kid­nap Zoe that same day. Zoe works at Suidooster Prop­er­ties with Ian and she is used as a pawn in Nina’s game to make Ian re­alise that she means busi­ness. Nina phones Ian on Fri­day 7 De­cem­ber and brags that she’s got Wade and Zoe and that they will only be re­leased once her de­mands have been met. “She wants Ian to stop the Hamerkop Vlei project and do­nate the site to a con­ser­va­tion or it will be over for her hostages,” says Char­lene, adding that Nina has planted a bomb on the boat that her hostages are be­ing kept in and that it can be det­o­nated on a whim.

Ian is se­ri­ously con­cerned for his em­ploy­ees’ lives and he does as he’s told, only to find out that Nina isn’t play­ing fair and she doesn’t re­lease her hostages as promised. Ian tries to pres­sure Nina again on Mon­day 10 De­cem­ber to re­lease Wade and Zoe but she merely lies to him about their lo­ca­tion to send him on a wild goose chase. Mean­while, Wade and Zoe are bond­ing in their des­per­ate hour and rekin­dle their re­la­tion­ship later that day. They de­cide to for­get about her prob­lems and Zoe’s abor­tion in Au­gust that even­tu­ally led to their break-up as Wade des­per­ately wanted her to keep the baby.


The cou­ple’s new­found love might be short-lived though. Fed up, Nina de­cides to ac­ti­vate the bomb on Tues­day 11 De­cem­ber. Dean says that it’s lit­er­ally a case of life and death “and none of their lives will ever be the same again”. Omi­nous words… www.twit­ter.com/tv­plus

Nina’s had enough of Wade’s be­trayal.
