Before Langa passed on, Gladys had been dealing with so much turmoil after finding out that her son, Ntokozo, was closely linked to her brother’s death.
Matters worsened when Ntokozo confirmed that it was Mam’Sonto who was behind his uncle’s death.
The confirmation of her brother’s death leaves Gladys inconsolable. And knowing that Mam’Sonto is responsible for her heartbreak intensifies Gladys’s hunger for revenge.
She already does not like Mam’Sonto and the entire Molefe family, so knowing that Mam’Sonto is her brother’s killer is something Gladys cannot forget nor forgive. She is out for revenge!
While Mam’Sonto enjoys dinner with her family, Gladys sneaks into her home and starts a fire that kills Mam’Sonto’s grandson, Langa.
Glady’s didn’t mean for anyone to die – she only wanted to scare Mam’Sonto. Langa’s death comes as a shock to Gladys as he not only is Mam’Sonto’s grandson but her stepson as well.
If you’ve been living under some rock, yes, Langa is Melusi’s son. Check out the beginning of Season 2 for context. Anyway, fast-forward to Lunga’s funeral.
A tug-of-war for the coffin
The days leading up to Langa’s funeral were so dramatic!
Melusi and Thati were at loggerheads and could not agree about where Langa’s funeral should be held.
As Langa’s father, Melusi wants the funeral to take place at his house, but Thati denies him that right. Thati make matters worse when she orders the mortuary to not release Langa’s body to Melusi.
Instead, the body is sent to the Molefe household, where the most shocking incident occurs.
Melusi barges into the Molefe household and gets into a heated argument with Thati. He suddenly orders his other son, Ntokozo, to help him take Langa’s body.
Thati is furious and both parents wrestle with the coffin until it falls. Thankfully, Langa’s body does not fall out of the coffin. Can you imagine how traumatising that would been?
Gladys’s dramatic fall
And just when we thought Langa’s death couldn’t bring any more drama, we are proven wrong.
Both families come to pay their last respect to Langa and Gladys finds herself in an emotional state. She keeps having vivid images of Langa standing in front of her. She is overwhelmed with guilt.
While standing next to the grave, Gladys sees Langa next to her. She can no longer take the guilt and falls right into Langa’s grave.
Here are some of the shocked Twitter reactions from viewers:
It seems like Gladys is finding it hard to keep the truth to herself. Will she find the courage to tell Melusi that she is the cause of his son’s death? Only time will tell.
