The past can be a terrible thing, especially when it decides to catch up with you.
While Angela’s attempt to blackmail Amaka was evil, we didn’t expect that the facts about Sunom’s death would remain hidden from the law forever. Truth be told, it was only a matter of time before the real story came out, but at least we now have a legitimate reason to dislike Mrs. Etuk. We’ve put up with her irritating behaviour for so long.
Poor Amaka was shocked to hear it was the terminally ill, soup-bearing grandmother of her unborn child that was reopening the case. We can only hope that she wouldn’t suffer too much.
Sheila’s suffering on the other hand seems to have no bound; she has got herself tangled in a web of deceit with the good doctor which is now hunting her.
Finally, Fred is “in love” with Laide. Having your husband not remember who you are is one thing; but watching him pine over another woman is quite another. Putting Fred Ade-Williams through this farce isn’t doing anybody any good I’d say; why not just tell him what year it is and let him know he has amnesia?
Loyal fans of Tinsel have suspended their disbelief and enjoyed the ride as Fred managed to drive to the office and miraculously return home without having seen one newspaper front page, new billboard, or calendar. The movie he couldn’t remember Reel Studios producing didn’t seem to bother him too much. The new buildings he noticed aroused only such mild suspicions that were easily dismissed by Sheila’s weak explanations. And this week Wale somehow was able to come up with some story about the location Reginald is away scouting for. We’ve enjoyed the great acting, but I seriously wonder if this charade can be stretched beyond this point.
Titi handed Salewa brilliantly; I enjoyed the way she switched to Yoruba to drive home her point, it was a nice touch. And of course, the “corpse discoverer”- Bimpe, did not disappoint either. Everyone’s favourite airhead is milking her 5 minutes of fame for all it’s worth.
Still, the question looming is “who killed Varere Brume?” We now know that whoever did it used some other weapon, not Ziggy’s gun which Kwame foolishly left behind. And we are assuming that this person is either physically strong, able to lift an adult man’s body into the boot of a car, or must have had help. It’s time for a little arithmetic, don’t you think?
