Outlaws Season 1 episodes 23-24: “I’m ready to get married”

This week’s episodes of Outlaws arrive with just enough drama to have us hanging on the edge of our seats. We pick up with Sihle waking up at home, but she is still dodging the questions about her mysterious disappearance. But Aunt Deli is not one to be fooled by her tricks. In a serious heart-to-heart, she urges Sihle to get her act together, and is convinced that Sihle was away with a man.

Meanwhile, at the hospital, Phumeza, who is Sihle’s voice of reason, also speaks some sense to her when she advises her to marry Kwanele while keeping her shady past a secret. Will Sihle take the plunge and decide to come clean, or will she vow to forever hold her peace?

Let’s recap this week’s episodes on Outlaws.

Free at last or calm before the storm?

Bergville is buzzing with joy as farmers commend Bandile for leading them to a much safer farming environment. With Bandile at the helm, the farmers have the right weapons to protect themselves against the cattle raiders and a week has gone by without any cows missing.

“When you go to bed at night and wake up in the morning, then you stretch. You look at your kraal and all your livestock is still intact. That’s such a beautiful feeling,” says one farmer. But can this peace last, or is it just the calm before a storm of cattle raids still to fall upon them?

The Top Four plan their next move

The Top four, now including their new member, Tlali’s father Lebua, have a deep discussion about the Zulus. Lebua wants them to strike, while other members of this council think it’s best for them to chill until the right time. 

However, in a rebellious move, Tlali not only disobeys the council but also starts stealing cows from his very own people. With money in his hand, Tlali heads to Joburg for a wild night out with Mosa. Looks like Tlali has let money go to his head. If there’s one person who is not pleased with Tlali’s latest moves, it’s his recent partner in crime, Nyakallo, who feels betrayed by him to the core.

Sihle’s tears

Sihle’s attempt to apologise to Kwanele crashes and burns. When Sihle shows up at Kwanele’s doorstep, she doesn’t get the warm welcome she was hoping for. Kwanele demands the truth about Sihle’s disappearance. He asks Sihle to tell him who she has been sleeping with all this time. The Zulu doctor goes into full-on “deny, deny, deny” mode.

Over breakfast, Sihle spills and tells the family about her failed attempt to get forgiveness from Kwanele. She asks the family to rally behind her, and to plan a meeting with the Dlaminis to help foster peace between the families. But will the Dlaminis cooperate after such an embarrassment or will this pave the way for some peace?

At the meeting, Aunt Deli and Uncle Emmanuel admit to Sihle’s wrongdoings but ask the Dlaminis to empathise with Sihle and that they would accept any penalty thrown at them. The family meeting takes a dramatic turn when Sihle drops a bombshell on everyone – she tells them that the main reason she left home is because she felt unsafe after getting shot. Blackmailing her way to sympathy, she mentions that she booked herself into a hotel in Durban and decided to shut her loved ones out. 

The meeting ends with celebration as both families reach common ground and wedding bells begin to ring. But will Sihle stick to her decision to marry Kwanele or will Leruo make a comeback and disrupt this arrangement? 

Stay tuned for more Outlaws madness! All the episodes of Outlaws are streaming on Showmax.
