After their tryst, Carol-Marie attempts to pick up with Leo, but he dismisses her, avoiding emotional entanglements. Leo recruits Cyrus to shadow Carol-Marie and intercept any attempts from The Syndicate to derail the sacco.

Q returns and brings with him a new layer of intrigue. He and Sweetness smooth-talk their way onto the Gatehi property to infiltrate the household as extra help. Sweetness, on a quest for control, forces Shei into confessing to Sinde’s murder. 

Nina and Tehi play a dangerous game 

Second Family is on Showmax

Nina’s unannounced return disrupts Tehi’s life. Clearly unhinged, she plays a dangerous game of Russian roulette and skilfully manages to tempt him to enjoy some illegal substances, hinting at a return to his old ways.

Evangeline reminds Leo who’s in charge

Second Family is on Showmax

In an unguarded moment, Evangeline realises how far Leo is willing to go to get his revenge on her. She orchestrates a meeting, all in the name of displaying her influence over the children in front of Leo and reminding him of her veto rights — and ultimately, her control of EAGC.

How will Leo retaliate? Will he manage to get the sacco registered before The Syndicate derails his plans? And what about the rest of the family – will Shei’s secrets finally come out? Will Gigi get her revenge? And will Tehi return to his old ways?

With so many unanswered questions, we can’t wait to see how Second Family unfolds! Stay tuned to Showmax to catch new episodes every Thursday and Friday.
