The main plotline for the episode revolved around the funeral ceremony of the late characters MaNzunza (Leleti Khumalo) and Smangele (Sihle Ndaba).

The hour-long episode was filmed a month ago on 16 January 2018 to air a special TV for the killed off characters of MaNzuza and Smangele, who were both murdered.

Gospel sensation Hlengiwe Mhlaba delivered some rendition of soothing gospel melodies.

According to the producers the “the funeral service is a send-off that no-one expected will happen. People have to hold on to their faith, some on their weapons, to make sure that they stay alive and breathing”.
