Dibuseng's snooping in Adam's home after his murder did not go unnoticed and is used against her in court... the case is not going well. Dibuseng looks very guilty.
Dibuseng and her lawyer, Steve, realise that there is another force behind all this evidence against her. Somebody out there is determined to prove her guilty of Adam's murder. Kone steps up. She can prove her mother is innocent. Kone is Dibuseng's only chance to get out from under this murder-charge... but before they can get the proof... Kone goes missing.
Kone is still missing and Dibuseng is losing her mind with worry, but Steve tracks down Kone's boyfriend who leads him to Kone's proof of her mother's innocence. This brings hope for Dibuseng, but at the same time, her greatest fear is realised.

Dibuseng unearths another name, a woman, and Dipuo and Dibuseng embarks on an undercover operation to milk this woman of whatever information they can find. Neither expected to find an avenue of information that propels Dibuseng into the past as she takes on an undercover role that inspired a revolution.
In her new-found role as 'maid', Dibuseng searches and digs for information to lead them to the head of the snake... Deceiving her family, she keeps her quest a secret, petrified of the lethal force out there willing to kill to protect themselves. She stumbles upon valuable information... for a moment.
Dibuseng finds and holds on to proof of this corruption-cartel, but is thrown in jeopardy when the 'madam' interferes, insisting on her good deed for the day, to help Dibuseng. With Dibuseng's sister, Dieketseng, targeted to get to Dibuseng, Dibuseng has no choice but to make a run for it...
The information damaged but still in her hands, Dibuseng sees light at the end of the tunnel, only to find Dieketseng had to pay the bloody price. Not to be taken down, the women unite as Dibuseng, her sister and Dipuo stand firm to take these 'enemy' forces down. The unexpected arrival of the 'madam' swells their numbers but also increases the impact of the horror about to strike them.
A child abducted... the price is high... The cartel starts to unravel. One by one the movers and shakers of the corruption-cartel is arrested... but a child is still missing and somebody is still out there....the same somebody still watching Dibuseng...
A kidnapping results in a court-house killing. There are no other leads. The kidnapper insists... Dibuseng is tasked to get the kidnapped child to safety... there is only one way. She has to get to that offshore funds and turn it over... or the child dies.
The pay-off goes wrong and Dibuseng fears for the child's life. The kidnapper has the money but took off with the child. Below the surface the old destructive forces are at play, hell-bent on seeing Dibuseng destroyed. The prosecutor is handed new information... calling into question the life and death decisions Dibuseng made on her late husband's behalf.
Dibuseng works it out who is behind this kidnapping... but is too late to stop him before he takes off. The kidnapped child is returned unharmed, dropped off at Dibuseng's home. All seems lost... there is only conjecture and not much proof... Those life and death decisions are now back to haunt her... and Dibuseng is arrested for the murder of her husband.
The prosecution is determined to let Dibuseng pay for her crimes. Dibuseng cannot help but feel the dice is loaded against her... no matter what... they will find a way to destroy her... the prosecution drags Shoni, Dibuseng's young son, to the witness-stand and Dibuseng breaks... she would rather confess than see her child take this hit.
The trial is not going well. Dibuseng's best friend testifies against her. The evidence stack up, burying Dibuseng... screaming that she is guilty of murdering her husband. Evidence that could speak for her is silenced. Dibuseng is about to pay the ultimate price while discovering that indeed nothing is what it seems.
