In her desperation, Boniswa turned to Quinton for help and it was the right move. The man has a big, kind heart and playing the hero is something that seems to come naturally to him. He convinced Hlengiwe to let the Mthunzi story go.
Boniswa didn't know where to turn when she heard that Romeo couldn't get Hlengiwe to stop pursuing the truth behind Siseko's death.
In an act of pure desperation, Boniswa turned to Quinton, Hlengiwe's boss.
At first, it didn't look like Quinton would pull Hlengiwe off the story because it would be unethical, and #Scandal fans know that Quinton is all about doing the right thing in the right way.
However, Dintle's words of advice got to Quinton. He shared with her that he needs to decide between doing the right thing and possibly putting a life in danger.
She told him to consider the value of the person he's worried about's life, and he did.
That's when his kind heart came into play, and Quinton told Hlengiwe the truth about Siseko.
She agreed that exposing the truth would only be sensationalism, and letting the story go was for the best. Boniswa's relief was almost tangible.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za noticed that fans of the show are wondering if Hlengiwe will really let the story go just like that.
