Kalashnikov’s plan to wrap Buhle around his finger seems to be going well. For the past couple of weeks, Kalashnikov has been grooming the naïve young woman and even made sure that he presents himself as an innocent victim. His plan is slowly coming together now.
Buhle chooses Kalashnikov over her family
Kalashnikov landed in hospital after he tried to attack JB. While he was in hospital, Buhle had a chance to go back home to her grandmother and younger brother. However, she refused to escape as she could only think about Kalashnikov. “I can’t leave until I’ve seen Bongani,” she told one of the ladies at the house.
A short while later, a man sent by Buhle came to fetch her and took her to the hospital. When she got there, she was very excited to see Kalashnikov alive and promised to not leave his side.
Lindi changes her mind
While Buhle and Kalashnikov are growing closer, Lindi and JB aren’t on the same page. As a result of the attack, Lindi even suggested that they shut down the entire operation. She told Vicky that JB is acting like the whole incident didn’t happen and she’s scared that the guys who attacked them might come back. For a moment, Lindi believed that closing the hotel would save lives.
However, Vicky made her see the bigger picture. “What did you think would happen, Lindi, when you decided to go back into the business? You thought it was going to be an easy job? You and JB took girls from pimps. You took bread out of Kalashnikov’s mouth. What did you expect him to do – just sit back? This industry doesn’t work like that,” she told Lindi.
Vicky also reminded her about the promises she made to the girls about giving them a better life. “You don’t get to shut down just because you’re scared or because you’ve made your money.” Although Lindi doesn’t want to put anyone’s life in danger, she changed her mind about closing the hotel because there are bills to pay.
