Dear friends,
another year, another anniversary.
Thank you very much
for celebrating with us.
- Aw!
- To our love.
To us.
- Cheers.
- Cheers, friend.
All right, gifting time.
Oh my goodness. What's going on here?
For you, my love.
- For me?
- Yes.
- Okay, let's see.
- Come on, open it.
- Swans. Aw!
- Aw!
Swans are known to be loyal to their mates
for the rest of their lives.
Every morning when I wake up next to you,
I can't believe how lucky I am.
I love you.
I love you.
According to Google,
swans are known to mate for life.
But female swans
are caught fucking around.
What do you think
about that, Lenny?
Brenda, come on.
Brenda, do you know
how expensive this damn table is?
- It's fine. It's fine.
- No, it's not fine.
Uh-oh. He's falling at my feet.
Be careful, Nandi.
- Stop it.
- It's fine.
- Let's go change, Brenda.
- Huh-uh.
Come through. Come.
Let's just come this way.
can you please attend to her?
I'll make sure she gets home.
- Thanks for taking her.
- Thank you.
Brenda, what are you doing?
Aren't you tired
of being Nandi's bitch?
Whoa! No, man!
You good?
I'm good.
I'm fine.
Okay, I-I'm gonna go. Yeah?
It's not like
you've got someone to go to.
You know what?
I like
the way you look at me.
I can't stop thinking about her.
I remember seeing her play
wearing her school uniform,
holding her doll.
If I'd known
it was her last day, I would
We are going to find
the person who killed her.
My brother thinks it's Benjamin Jiba.
Promise me
that you'll do whatever it takes
to make sure justice is served.
Whoever killed that girl,
whoever raped her
That bastard will pay.
Thank you.
- Hey.
- Hey.
You're telling him you're a virgin?
What? He wanted to know a secret.
Have you not heard of catfishing?
He told me a secret first, okay?
What was it?
I'm not telling you. It's a secret.
Ah! Laura! Give it back.
That is not a secret.
That is a red fucking flag.
Like, who is this guy?
What's his real name?
What subjects is he taking?
Give me my phone back.
Only if you ask who he really is
because this is weird.
Fine, just give it back.
He's right about one thing. We're late.
Laura, give it back.
As mentioned, the perpetrators of GBV
are usually related to the victims.
Family members,
loved ones, spouses.
So, if we look at the stats
on the screen, they show that
Has anyone seen the student
that sits over there normally, Jacob?
Anyone seen him today?
- Nope.
- Huh-uh.
So, uh
Hey, this is Jacob.
Please leave a message.
Jacob, hi.
You weren't in class today,
and as your professor
I wanted to check
if you're okay.
Um, just if you can phone me
If you get this message, phone or text me.
Bra V, this is still a crime scene.
There was no crime committed here.
Just a suicide.
I need a favor.
The honor of two women
who are very important to me is at stake
just because
of some stupid, drunken night.
One of those women is married,
and the other is dead.
You know that we still have to conduct
an investigation.
I've put in a request to watch the footage
from the cameras out in the street.
So Nandi has obviously told you
who the semen belongs to.
Let's just say,
it has nothing to do
with what Brenda did to herself.
So, you can get the case closed, right?
To Brenda.
And then?
Give me that.
Is, like, taking my phone
your new pathology?
- Uh-uh, stop.
- You stop.
"Are you here?"
So PokébOi is not a boy?
Well, now I feel dumb.
Did you
Did you think she was hot?
Aren't you the one who's always saying,
"It's a spectrum?"
I guess I'd be into his, her,
or their mind.
Is there somewhere
we can talk in private?
You know, Jacob, um
I've been thinking
about our situation, and
Jacob, I don't want what happened
between us to affect your education.
So as your professor, I
I want to advise you
to change classes
if you need to, but don't quit.
So you're only here
as my professor?
Why are you really here?
I don't know if it's okay to
to be this happy right now.
Why did you pick him?
I Uh, I didn't.
You know, to tell you the truth, I
I fell pregnant, and
he pressured me
into marrying him.
But I mean
I also allowed it.
we had a lot of good years.
But lately, it's just
It's been tough.
I We
lost a
I miscarried a few months ago, and
he blamed me for it.
Nandi, I'm sorry.
You know this is not your fault, right?
Do you still want to be
with him?
No, and I think
it's time that I told him that.
Because of me?
Because of him.
Not you.
You are you. You're separate.
You know,
if it's because of anyone,
it's because of Brenda.
For many years,
she made me realize
that my marriage was over.
I really miss her.
Are you okay? What is it?
I'm okay.
Excuse me.
I really miss her.
Yeah, me too.
She gave me some really good advice,
and I
I think I'm going to follow it.
About what?
Yeah. Go ahead. Book it.
I'll be on my way.
Yeah. You book it. I'll be on my way.
Some couples just aren't meant
to stay together.
He loves you.
You guys share a child together,
and he isn't cheating.
Don't do something
that you're gonna end up regretting.
Otherwise, you'll end up like me.
Your little side thing,
is that still going on?
let's not disrespect each other.
Leonard is a piece of shit.
I know that.
But I also know
that he doesn't deserve this.
It's none of your business.
Hey, my love.
I'm sorry to wake you up.
I didn't mean to.
Look, I have to cover
for a colleague at a seminar.
It's a bit impromptu,
and the Minister of Justice will be there,
so I will see you.
So when will you be back?
As I said, my love,
I'll be back tomorrow.
Thank you, Paul.
I know it's our anniversary tomorrow.
So don't make any plans, okay?
- Okay.
- All right.
Let's go, Paul.
- Justice.
- Ameera.
- You good?
- Yeah.
Let's get moving.
I can give you love
Give you love like none other ♪
None other, I can give you love
Give you love like none other ♪
Stay with me 'cause we got each other ♪
I want to be in your life.
- Still nothing?
- Not since that day.
I think you just gotta accept
you've been ghosted.
I just thought we had a connection. Like
Like a real connection, you know?
Okay, how does this sound?
"PokébOi, if you blue tick me
one more time, you're blocked."
And will you?
Ugh, I'll send it later.
Are you sure
that you're in the right profession?
It's been a long time
since I did this.
That's what you do to me.
Let me go get ready to go.
You're leaving?
Leonard is coming back today.
It's our anniversary.
You don't understand
how this hurts me.
It's very hard
when it's time for me to leave.
I mean, I'm living a lie.
I'm I'm a liar.
- Well, so stop lying and tell him.
- I will.
I've heard that before.
I've got
a lawyer working on it.
I'm falling for you.
Nandi, I've been scared to say,
but I've loved you
I've loved you before before we even met.
I'll miss you.
- Hey! Is this him? Huh?
- Who is this?
- Is this him?
- Old man, who the fuck are you?
What are you doing here?
What am I doing here?
What are you doing on your anniversary?
How did you even know I was here?
- This is a kid.
- He's a child. What, 19, 20?
- 24.
- Screw you!
Keep your voices down.
- I'm trying to help you here, Nandi.
- You and Leonard.
Mind your business
and move your fucking car out of here.
Fine. If you wanna fuck up your life,
just do it.
Now just leave me, please.
You want to elope?
Wish me luck.
Keep me in your thoughts.
Ma, can you please come
pick me up?
I'm in Stellenbosch,
and I had a little bit to drink, so
So far away, Zinhle.
How could you just
You're the one
who said I shouldn't drink and drive.
I should rather call, so

I'll come fetch you.
- Thank you.
- Just drop me your location pin, okay?
Also, Ma,
happy anniversary.
