Will Linda ever live her life in peace? We doubt it. On the first season of Housekeepers, we watched as she lived with the pain of losing her mother, June. We also saw her vow to make the Zwides pay for what they did to June. She may have kept her vow, but her troubles are far from over.
Now Linda has to worry about keeping her name clean. But that is proving to be a problem because she is the number-one suspect in the Zwide family murder, which is still under investigation.
Linda under the microscope
Conway, a policeman and Linda’s friend, warned her to stay away from everyone who could blow her cover, including her housekeeper friends. He instructed Linda to get rid of Maria. In case you’ve forgotten, Maria is the same woman who helped Linda when she killed the Zwide family. Linda shot Boniswa and Maria stabbed Peter. They then cleaned up the murder scene together.
According to Conway, Maria could end up turning against Linda as she’s the only other person who knows everything that happened.
“Deal with her and make it very quick,” he told her. But Linda chose not to hurt Maria and told her to move to Limpopo until the murder investigation blew over.
And by the look of things, the case is not going away any time soon because detective Miya is determined to get Linda behind bars. He paid her a visit at home and told her that he found loopholes in her statement.
“You were a victim of the Zwides. You were almost abducted, but you didn’t get into the car. But you did end up at the Zwide house. They tied you up, you managed to escape,” he said, adding that he really wants to help her. “But if you keep lying to me, you are adding obstruction of justice to your charges,” he warned Linda.
The Ngubanes are another level of hectic
One thing we’ve learned about Linda is that she’s a fighter and we’re certain that she’ll do whatever it takes to stay out of prison. She’s now employed as a housekeeper for the notorious Ngubane family and they have a lot of skeletons in their closet. It turns out that Mrs Ngubane knew the Zwides very well and might have had a hand in June’s death in prison.
How’s that for a plot twist?
Will working for this family help Linda with her case, or will she end up in more trouble?
