Mar­i­tal mis­trust

Olivia fears the worst as Diederik be­haves out of char­ac­ter.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - 7DE LAAN -

Olivia (Na­dia Herbst) is still on cloud nine af­ter she and her boyfriend Diederik (Hen­nie Ja­cobs) made the most se­ri­ous prom­ise of love: mar­riage. “Olivia has fi­nally found her soul­mate,” says Na­dia. “Her best friend is now her hus­band and for the first time, she feels that she has made the right choice.” But Diederik isn’t on the same page and his be­hav­iour changes on Thurs­day 17 Jan­uary af­ter he has a se­cret chat with Doc­tor Alexa (Ca­rina Nel).

IN TWO MINDS

Beleef deli wait­ress Esti (Re­andi Grey) is vis­it­ing her friend Olivia on Wed­nes­day 16 Jan­uary and the new bride can’t stop blab­bing about how won­der­ful mar­ried life is. But that changes the next day on Wed­nes­day 17 Jan­uary when Olivia sees her hus­band look­ing very cosy while chat­ting to Alexa. Na­dia says that her char­ac­ter is over­think­ing things and over­com­pli­cat­ing the mat­ter. “Her heart has been bro­ken once be­fore and she sud­denly feels un­sure of ev­ery-thing when she sees Diedie and Alexa talk­ing. She can’t stop her­self from won­der­ing if her hus­band is cheat­ing on her.” Olivia goes to Alexa’s of­fice at the Hill­side Clinic on Fri­day 18 Jan­uary and de­mands an­swers about what she’s do­ing with Diederik. Olivia leaves with-out an­swers and even more de­ter­mined to find out what Alexa and Diederik are hid­ing from her.

DIS­AP­PEAR­ING ACT

There’s drama in Hill­side on Mon­day 21 Jan­uary when Diederik goes miss­ing. Olivia is dis­traught and asks Diedie’s cousin Marko (Fran­cois Lens­ley) to help her find him. “Olivia thinks the worst, that her hus­band has left her,” ex­plains Na­dia. It’s not a long wait be­cause Diederik re­turns to The Laan on Wed­nes­day 23 Jan­uary and he doesn’t sug­ar­coat things. “He tells her up­front that he went away be­cause he needed to think things through,” says Hen­nie, adding that Diedie asks Olivia to sup­port him dur­ing this awk­ward time. Is heart­break on the hori­zon for Olivia again? And how does Alexa fit in?

The new­ly­weds aren’t see­ing eye-to-eye.
