The season finale of Skeem Saam proved to be exactly what the doctor ordered and SABC 1 viewers can agree.

The final episode of Season 9 left fans of the soap gasping for air, grappling with high blood pressure and then some, as Kwaito and John Maputla, accompanied by MaNtuli, Joyce and Sfiso, went to get the much-anticipated DNA tests done to confirm whether Kwaito was indeed John's son.

Lo and behold, the story reached fever-pitch as the doctor confirmed that there was a 99.9 per cent probability of John being Kwaito's father. At the same time, Meikie, who has been as scary as ever off-late, was making her way to be part of the reading of the results.

The rumbling plot twist here was the fact that John had left his cellphone at home, which Meikie duly carried with her, presumably to give it to him. That is when a message came in confirming flight details to Scotland.

Meikie, who had a gun with her, lost it and when she saw John in a heart-to-heart with Kwaito, cocked her gun in a fiery scene resembling the set of an action movie.

Seconds later, with MaNtuli running after Kwaito, Meikie got trigger happy and aimed at Kwaito and MaNtuli. She fired. The mother and son pair collapsed to the ground and were rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment.

In the scene, Meikie found her husband, John Maputla – played by Afrika Tsoai – and her best friend and neighbour Mantuli, who is played by Dieketseng Mnisi, talking about DNA tests.

As soon as she walked in on them, they changed the subject and played dumb to the situation. But Meikie wasn’t having any of it and began questioning them suspiciously, after which Mantuli made a run for it.

Given the performance, South African viewers showered Manamela with praise on social media, the consensus being that she put on a performance that only a few could match.
