Phakade ultimately decides to invite Phunyuka back into the church.

Lwazi and her henchman return to break Celiwe’s finger and Celiwe is left with no choice but to steal MaZulu’s earrings to pay off her debt.

Phunyuka is wracked with guilt when he learns from MaZulu and Phakade that MaKhumalo told them she envisaged Nganono being dead. Mr Maharaj summons Phunyuka and threatens to reveal that Phunyuka killed Nganono unless Phunyuka agrees to be his spy. Celiwe realises that the earrings she stole are more special and expensive than she thought. She tries to get them back from the mashonisa but fails. She confesses to MaZulu that she stole the earrings. Buhle recruits both Zithulele and Zakithi to help her get a new camera.
