Savage Beauty (2022) s01e06 Episode Script

Episode 6

1 Patriarch.
That's what they used to call me, but now I'm It's just journalists trying to sell papers.
I'm a laughing stock with a weak heart.
And a wife who slept with his daughter.
I've lost my touch.
Things are going to get worse when this thing with Grace goes public.
I can't believe she I'm sorry you had to find out like that.
But, like, I thought you needed to know.
I can't have any more of these failures.
I need to do something something big.
Like what? We're getting married at the end of this week.
- Bab' Don - It's going to be a wedding of the decade.
A reminder that Don Bhengu still got it.
Imagine the headline "Don Bhengu weds the Face of Bhengu!" How could you do that to Thando? Really, Phila? Your father kicked us out and you want to talk about Thando.
- You aborted her child.
- Don't be crude! Your father and I were a team.
And then he decided he wants more.
More children, more wives, more bastard That doesn't justify what you did.
- I wanted him to suffer, Phila.
- And what about her? - What about Thando? - She needed to know her place.
Okay? Ma, I need you to talk to her.
The only thing I need to figure out is how to deal with your father.
I am serious, Ma.
It's either you apologize or you're on your own.
Hi, babe.
Thando? Hey, what's wrong? Are you all right? I know you're not going to like this, but What? I saw Zinhle.
- Thando.
- Yes, I know.
I know.
But you have to hear this.
Okay Don asked Zinhle to marry him.
- What? - She said yes.
No, no, why would my Dad marry Zinhle? That I don't know.
That's insane.
I ca I can't allow that.
- Who are you calling? - My father.
I can't allow it to happen.
Yeah, I'm still blocked.
Listen, why why would he marry Zinhle? I don't know.
I have no idea.
I found the girl who filmed us at Emerald.
She gave me a name and number of who hired her.
I just need to find him.
So, you still think that Zinhle is behind everything? Yeah.
I I just need to piece everything together right now.
Marry her? I knew that girl was up to something.
Good morning, Bab' Don.
You're about to be my wife.
Please call me Ngcolosi.
I was thinking "The wedding of the decade" needs at least three months of preparation.
That way you get maximum publicity and you and I can get to know each other better.
We can always get to know each other after our wedding.
I'm not about to give Grace time to spin the story.
One thing I'm not doing is waiting three months before sleeping with you.
Thomas? Take those bags to the main bedroom.
I've got something for you.
Give me your hand.
Stunning! Please do show it off at the shoot.
I don't have a shoot today.
Our wedding announcement shoot.
Look, I don't mean to be rude, but what do you guys want? Ma.
If it's about Zinhle and Dad, we already know, so save it.
No, it's not that.
Ma, say something.
I came to apologize for what I did to you.
Well, you've done a lot of things to me.
What exactly are you apologizing for? Specifically for the loss of your child.
What? Babe, what is she on about? Why Baby? Why are you apologizing for that, Grace? Because it wasn't a miscarriage.
She put a pill in my drink.
Thando, I'm so sorry.
I was angry with Don, and I took Whoa! Did you know, Phila? No.
I found out last night when we were kicked out.
What? Yes, we've all been kicked out.
Look, Zinhle recorded your conversation and she played it back for Baba.
I just wanted Ma to come and apologize to you.
You call that an apology? I think it's best you both leave.
I'm sorry that we bothered you.
Why didn't you tell me? Grace would've made my life hell if I told anyone.
I would've protected you.
I'd have protected you and you know it.
I know.
And if I told my father, he definitely would've kicked her out sooner.
Well, then I would've been forced to have kids with him.
You know, baby You know, you you're the best thing that has ever happened to me.
And if I'd had to have kids with him this was not going to happen.
Um, sorry, it's Zandi.
Yeah, it's okay.
She says she's going to help us find out who this Bonga person is.
Will you be okay here alone? You sure? Yeah, go.
All my love scattered everywhere ♪ What do you care? ♪ What seemed so sweet Turned into a nightmare ♪ I was so scared ♪ The beating stops and I panic ♪ Then I become so mechanic ♪ Things are getting out of hand.
It's a mess.
You know, I didn't think he'd get rid of Grace.
But when he did, I thought, "Great.
" I thought it would be easier to get a confession from him.
What's going on? Talk.
He wants to marry me.
By the end of this week.
Are you listening to yourself? So, you marry him at the end of the week and then what? Hmm? You know how Don is.
And knowing him, he's going to want more.
Sister what are you going to do? Do you remember the day we had Amahle's cleansing, you told me that you want Don to suffer.
Remember? I know.
But he's not the one who is suffering now.
We are suffering! My sister - we're losing ourselves here.
- Bonga, I'll make a plan.
Okay, okay.
There's something you need to know.
What are you talking about? Thanks, brother.
I think I know how we'll get a confession from Don.
Zinhle? I'll call you.
Zee? Yeah.
Just draw something up for me in the meantime and then we'll finalize later, yeah? Cool.
Okay, one down.
What you working on? I am looking for the best divorce lawyers in the country.
For whose divorce? Yours.
Isn't that what you're going to do, start over? Son, I really don't have the energy to start over.
Then what are you going to do? There's something I never told you about how we started the company.
Your father and I were going to co-own it fifty-fifty.
But he went behind my back and registered everything in his name.
I convinced myself that what's his was also mine.
But he never let me forget who was boss.
This time he has gone too far.
He'll never change.
Well, isn't that why you should divorce him? So you can get back your dignity and half of what's yours? Did you say "half"? No, my child.
I don't do half.
I want everything, and you're going to help me run Bhengu Beauty, the right way.
The way it should be.
- Hello.
- Hi, Bonga.
Who is this? There's an emergency with Vee.
You're the only one in her contacts who answered.
What happened? She's at 31 George Street.
Hurry! Ah Mr.
Bhengu, welcome back.
Your table.
The usual.
- Hey.
- Hey, Mr.
Don, how're you doing? I see you took my advice about grooming your beard.
I learned from the best.
Thank you.
What? You seem a little tense.
Are you okay? This is not really my style.
You're about to be Mrs.
So I asked the stylist to dress you the part.
I like the sound of that.
Are you ready to order? Can we have five minutes, please? It's been a rough couple of months.
Feels like this dark cloud is just hanging over everything.
That's all over now.
I feel the darkness of what Mam' Grace did to Thando.
And I still have nightmares of when she tried to kill me.
I'd feel safer if we had a spiritual cleansing before our wedding.
Cleansing? Yeah, a fresh start.
We don't need that.
Ngcolosi a cleansing before a new beginning will make me feel protected.
Okay, we'll do it.
Waiter? Anyone here? Hello? Are you close? Put Vee on the line.
I can't, she OD'd.
OD'd? Yes, she's regaining consciousness, but we can't leave her alone.
Vee doesn't do drugs.
What? Greetings.
Your greeting is well received.
You may come in.
The ancestors are here.
They want to speak now.
But they refuse to talk with her here.
Leave, Zinhle.
Of course.
Your ancestors are showing me your path.
They're showing me your future.
Your journey has led you to a crossroads.
One path leads to even more power and wealth.
But the other Where does it lead to? I see lotions, children and an old house.
Do these things mean anything to you? No, nothing.
Your ancestors say you're lying.
They want you to come clean.
I don't know what you're talking about.
There are children crying and a great fire.
- Let's get out of here.
- Why? What happened? In the car, Zinhle! Makhosi.
I know that you have been through a lot in your life.
But don't you ever make me lie about the ancestors again.
- That woman's a quack.
- What did she say? Hello, Simphiwe.
Can you come to the house? Yes, straight away, please.
Thank you.
Peter, drive.
What's up? We lost our only contact.
Still have his number? He's not going to answer.
It's not about whether he is going to answer or not, I was thinking maybe you can find someone to get his address that's linked to his phone number.
Surely he must have provided it.
Why didn't I think of that? - Thanks, babe.
- Ah-ah-ah.
You're amazing.
I know.
Not a nigga you can play with Keep a stone on me like David ♪ I can tell you how my day went I woke up and got to the cake, yes ♪ Money talk, favorite conversation Do a lot, I don't really say shit ♪ I swear I ain't hopped out a spaceship Niggas bite tryna do the same shit ♪ I don't mind I know niggas try to get to the top ♪ Just to get they name out there ♪ I just make some sacrifices that I know they won't make, so it's not fair ♪ Ah! Hey! Ai! Oh There is a spirit of vengeance.
It's coming after you.
I don't know if it's in the physical world, or the spiritual world.
It's protected by pure souls.
Can you help me? Like I said, it is protected by pure souls.
I don't know if I'll be able to help you.
You'll be well compensated as usual.
I'll be able to help you only if it reveals itself.
Do it.
Yeah! The driver's waiting for you downstairs.
It's always good to see you, my friend.
Yeah, it's always great to do business with you.
If you need me you know where to find me.
How did it go? Perfectly.
See, there's no need to worry about dark spirits anymore now.
What are these? Something to cleanse and protect us.
We're going to take this together going forward.
Ah The wedding announcement is going out tomorrow.
Prepare for well wishes.
I can't wait.
Grab a few of these for yourself.
Great, see you soon.
Son, there you are.
I need you to bring all the board members here tomorrow.
Make sure they don't know they've all been invited.
I can do that now.
Where are you going? Doctor's appointment.
- After hours? - Exactly! Okay.
You know, this man thinks the wedding will fix his reputation.
The reputation that you have ruined? Yes.
What am I going to do now? I'm going to tell you what I did.
I went to the police and told them that Don murdered Kolobe.
I specifically told you that we cannot be talking to the police.
What are we supposed to do? What are we going to do because I'm getting mysterious calls about Vee? No.
We need help.
This could ruin everything.
Look, Detective Selekane is a trustworthy man.
How can you be so sure? My boss referred me to him.
They are friends.
And he told me that the detective will investigate and make an arrest.
He will arrest Don and have him locked up in prison.
I don't know about this.
For once in our lives, let me take care of us.
But I can't make any sudden moves with Don.
He has to think everything is moving forward as planned.
- Top up? - Yeah, thanks, babe.
Oh my gosh! What? What is it? Dad's wedding announcement.
They're getting married the day after tomorrow.
Why are they in such a hurry? He was going to get married after the heart attack anyway.
I just don't know what's in it for Zinhle.
No, I can't let this happen.
We need to find out who this Bonga person is ASAP, because I I just know Zinhle is behind this somehow.
So, how close are you? Zandi's friend says she can get us a current address by tomorrow.
So Okay.
Uh Detective.
I got a message that you wanted to see me.
Hey, man.
I spoke to your boss at the security company.
About? Mm.
This whole incident seems to have caused you a lot of stress.
Don't you want some time off? I'm not stressed.
I don't need time off.
You do.
Hey, man.
Take a few days off.
Eh? It comes with full pay! Huh? With bonus, of course.
Zinhle, I really messed up.
I need to disappear for a while.
I need to see you before I leave.
All the major media networks have confirmed already.
That's fantastic.
Oh, sorry.
- I've got to take this.
- Sure.
Aw, pre-wedding jitters? Yeah.
Don't worry about it.
Everything's going to be perfect.
- Uh - Yeah.
Duty calls.
I'll see you later.
- What baby wants - Baby gets! I actually need a charger.
Of course, you can use mine.
Now, let's get you ready in that dress.
- Okay.
- You must be so excited! Ma? Yes, son, is it done? Yep.
Sit down.
Let me tell you exactly how this is going to play out.
Is it a current address? Perfect, thanks.
Babe, I got an address.
- Really? Where is it? - Yes.
It's in Soweto.
We also got a surname.
- It's Selepe.
- Oh, that's that's great.
Thank you.
You're coming with me, right? Yeah.
How do you know Kolobe? I don't know what you're talking about.
Then why are you bothering Detective Selekane about his death How much do you want? I don't want your money.
I want to see you and Grace in prison for what you did.
And what exactly did we do? This thing Grace and I did.
You don't remember? I'm one of the children you tested bleaches on.
And then you burned us alive.
Remember that? And you survived the fire? Yes.
It's over Don.
Please don't shoot.
I'm so sorry.
No? You You don't remember? No.
I was just a young boy.
I tried to run away.
You caught me and burned me like some animal.
You don't remember that? I'm sorry.
Hey! Don't come closer! You don't remember anything at all? See, everything I do the women, the houses, the trips, the cars it's all to make me forget.
You want me to feel sorry for you? - I don't want you to pity me.
- What do you want? - Just go ahead and shoot me.
Shoot me! - Hey! I deserve to die.
God knows, I look forward to it.
You you don't deserve to be a killer.
I destroyed your life.
Don, Don Don! I don't want to do it again.
Just lower the gun.
I will repent.
I will do what you think is right.
Just lower the gun, son.
I will take my punishment.
Mm! And it is dripping from head to toe.
Fits like a glove, right? It does.

I need to disappear for a while.
Please come see me before I leave.

Oh, shit.
I think that's the house there on the right.
- Yes? - Yeah.

It will be very clear.
In front of you are confidential medical records, open them.
I've been hiding my husband's secret for a year, but he's getting worse, and there's nothing I can do to help him.
He's fired two CEOs in less than two months.
And suddenly he's marrying a much younger employee days after Don Bhengu is mentally unfit to lead.
We need to take action now before he runs the company into the ground.
It's time to pick a new head of Bhengu Beauty.

But you locked us up in there when we were sleeping.
She set the house on fire.

And for giving Don and Zinhle everything they'll deserve.
I'll drink to that.
And to Grace Bhengu, of course.
To Grace Bhengu.
We tested them on children.
The money we made from the bleaches is what funded Bhengu Beauty.
Zinhle, please call the ambulance now before I die.
Ugh, stop being so dramatic, it's not a heart attack.
You're just reacting to some drugs.
What? You're high.
Unlike you I'm not a killer.
Everything you love is about to go up in flames.
This is only the beginning.
