This season of Rockville delivered loads of drama and action for viewers. The series introduced new characters and they brought their A-game! There was love, suspense and even teary moments as one of the show’s most loved characters was killed.
Check out some of the most shocking moments from Season 5.
Oupa shot and killed
Oupa met and quickly fell in love with a beautiful journalist. However, he didn’t know that his love story would be short-lived. He was too excited about the new lady in his life and even introduced her to his mother.
He called her the love of his life, which shocked everyone as the relationship was still new.
Oupa then introduced Stellina to his sister, Lindi, and his brother in-law, JB. They were meant to have dinner at the hotel but before that, JB had to disappear for a while. Being a nosy journalist, Stellina decided to follow JB and saw him having a conversation with his shady business partner, Capone.
She took out her phone and secretly recorded the conversation. Oupa found her hiding and she immediately stopped recording. Unfortunately, Capone saw them and even got his hands on the phone. He got upset and took out his gun.
“Princess, you know I just saw you on the news, and now you are here,” Capone told Stellina. He then fired two gunshots. Oupa, who was standing in front of his girlfriend (trying to protect her) was shot and killed. Lindi was hysterical and fired multiple shots at Capone.
Buhle asks JB for a job
Buhle had a chance to go back home after being rescued by JB. However, she refused and told JB: “I told Gogo that I found a job here at the hotel.” Buhle didn’t want to go back to KZN empty-handed after disappearing for weeks. “I want to do what Sweety and the other girls do… It will be my first time.” When JB refused, she begged and told him about her family’s struggles.
JB told his wife, Lindi, that he just can’t encourage a young girl like Buhle to get into that kind of business. “Buhle reminds me of you,” he told Lindi. “You know, when we first met all those years ago? A bright young girl flirting with the dangerous side of life… I forbid it.”
However, after much convincing from Buhle, JB gave in and gave her a job as a waitress. This was all part of her plan to get closer to JB and seduce him. Buhle was just following Kalashnikov’s plan to bring JB down. And, to do that, she had to make him fall in love with her.
Although they kissed a few times, JB made it clear to Buhle that he couldn’t go further with what they were doing. “I love my wife,” he told her. He told her she could no longer stay at the hotel.
JB and Vicky have a son together
Vicky’s son, Delani, came looking for her at the hotel. The young boy interrupted a very heated argument between Vicky and JB. After JB left the room, Delani wanted to know the truth about his father’s identity. Although she wasn’t willing to open up at first, Vicky decided to tell her son the truth a few days later.
“I wanted to take it with me to my grave. But yes, JB is your father,” she told him. “He didn’t know either. He only found out when you walked in on us.” She explained that she couldn’t tell JB because of his marital status. “I didn’t want to cause drama.”
However, Delani wasn’t pleased with his mother’s explanation and felt that he was robbed. “So, all these years I could have had a father who loved me? I mean, he has money. We could have lived together.” Vicky thought she was doing the right thing and wanted to protect her child.
JB and Buhle’s secret affair exposed
After everyone finally accepted Delani into the family, he was thrown a massive 16th birthday party. Everyone was invited including Lindi’s mother, Mavis, and her entertaining neighbours. Things were going well until something shocking happened.
JB received a call informing him about something Buhle had done. Just as he dropped the call, Buhle came rushing in to warn him about something. However, he refused to listen to her and asked Sipho to take her away. After this interaction, party guests saw something that their eyes were probably never meant to see: video of Buhle and JB kissing was playing on the big screen.
This obviously caused drama between JB and Lindi, and she ended up asking for a divorce.
A new enemy
In the end, love prevailed and Lindi forgave JB for his mistake. Although they’ve managed to work things out, they’re now facing bigger problems, which will probably be dealt with if a new season comes. Lindi was disowned by her mother after she discovered that the hotel is actually a brothel. And, while JB has taken Kalashnikov out, it seems he’s made a new enemy for himself.
