Jaw-dropping drama. Never-ending plot-twists. Unlimited suspects. Legacy offers fans romance, glamour, wealth, drama and deceit all the way until their 50th episode and directors Phathutshedzo Makwarela and Gwydion Beynon show no signs of stopping.
Apart from boasting a sterling and diverse cast, including Kgomotso Christopher, Jay Anstey, Trix Vivier and Mzansi’s favourite TV presenter Caddy Tsotetsi, Legacy is also jam packed with real relatable drama for every South African.
To celebrate the airing of episode 50, we have compiled a list of the 10 most memorable moments so far. (To avoid spoilers, don’t read these until you’ve streamed every episode of Legacy on Showmax or DStv online!)
1. Sebastian Price Snr surviving after being pushed off the edge of a cliff
Having been groomed to take over the family company, Sebastian’s eldest daughter, Felicity’s dream is snatched away when her father finds out she’s been ‘seeing’ his driver. Reacting in anger Felicity and Sebastian struggle and Sebastian ends up falling off the cliff only to return and be shot by Stefan, Felicity’s love interest.
2. Felicity and Stefan burying and then exhuming Sebastian Price Snr’s body to rebury him in plain sight
With the famed Detective Koeksister (Badenhorst) hot on the heels of the killer couple, Stefan and Felicity move Sebastian’s body, from the lodge, to throw him off their “scent”. The couple then bury Sebastian under his beloved rose garden where they suspect no one would look.
3. Dineo Price has another son
Dineo is prepared to be imprisoned for arranging a hitman to kill her husband rather than telling her family- and the world- that the person she had met up with the night before Sebastian’s death was her son, Sefako. After being caught on video handing a bag over to a man at the petrol station, Dineo is wrongfully accused of hiring a hitman to kill Sebastian. In a shocking twist, we discover that it was in fact her son she had at 16 years old, named Sefako, who was in trouble and needed help. Sefako, having already been in trouble with the law, is protected by Dineo as she refuses to tell anyone that it was him who she handed the bag to the night before in a bid to not abandon him once again.
4. John blackmailing Felicity and Stefan
With Stefan’s help, Felicity finds out that the person blackmailing them is Ntate John, a helper at the family lodge, who has video footage of her and Stefan moving the body.
5. SJ’s secret fiancée
We were finally happy that SJ and Petra were going to be a couple and even came up with cute names for their situationship but stopped mid-way as Toya, SJ’s secret American fiancée, showed up.
6. Toya announces that she is pregnant
As if being a secret fiancée isn’t enough, Toya also reveals that she is expecting SJ’s baby, which naturally sends shockwaves through the entire Price family, with many members suspecting that she may be lying.
7. Stefan’s bogus report into how Sebastian Price Snr died
Stefan’s report states that Sebastian was killed and eaten by lions, which leaves the Price family in shock. Stefan, subtly assisted by Felicity, persuades the family to believe the story about the lions.
8. Ntate John’s “price” to go away forever
Having enough of being on edge with him around, Felicity asks John what he wants to stay away forever and John reveals that all he wants is the Price family lodge.
9. Felicity getting close to Sefako to manipulate Dineo
To secure the family lodge for Ntate John, Felicity must not only get the votes of the board but also that of her family, to which Dineo outright disagrees and even goes as far as to get a court interdict. Felicity responds by staging a tell-all interview with Sefako to force Dineo into withdrawing her court appeal.
10. Felicity covering up Lexi’s hit and run
After getting into an accident while she’s drunk, Lexi has no other choice but to call Felicity. Together the two must move the body of the man Lexi has killed as well as cover up exactly what happened.
