Space cookies, broken bonds & romances on the rocks
Principal Thobakgale doesn’t take kindly to her rival Alfred’s threats, and Lelo questions her boyfriend Lehasa’s secret meeting with his business partner Candice. There is tension in the Maputla house when Mokgadi and her son Noah return, and Katlego is fuming about his girlfriend Candice’s close ties to Lehasa. Kwaito’s financial stress grows as his mother MaNtuli and sister Pretty make more demands, and Lelo’s meeting with her parole officer leaves a bitter taste in her mouth.
Lelo tries to salvage what’s left of her broken romance with Lehasa, and Noah is interested in entering the upcoming poetry competition. Lehasa continues sneaking around with Candice despite Lelo’s warnings, Principal Thobakgale is conflicted about calling a truce with Alfred, and Kwaito is shocked by his bank statements. Sis Ouma receives a strange call from Turfloop University, and Mr Langa tries to win over Kat. Mokgadi and Leeto caution their neighbour Principal Thobakgale about trusting Alfred, and Lelo threatens to dump Lehasa. Alfred blames his wife Celia for conspiring against Principal, Pretty turns down a tempting job offer, and Lelo spends Valentine’s Day alone as Lehasa heads to Turfloop. MaNtuli calls out her son Kwaito for thinking that he’s the man of the house and can order everyone around, and it seems that Alfred’s days at Turfloop High are numbered. Lehasa is speechless after Lelo’s confession, and trouble-maker student Koloi sells dagga cookies on the school campus.
Lehasa has a sneaky suspicion that Lelo is lying to him about her medical condition, and the Turf High teachers are fed up with the students’ appalling behaviour but there isn’t much that they can do. Lelo is upset that Lehasa thinks she’s sleeping with Emkay, and Koloi runs away when the cops find out about his marijuana cookie business. Principal Thobakgale’s first task as headmistress is to expose Koloi, and Kat gives Candice the cold shoulder and makes it clear that the only relationship they have now is professional.
Principal Thobakgale (right) and Alfred’s war is far from over.
Noah tries to put his troubles in the past by entering a poetry contest.
