Episode 12 (SABC 1, 29 April 2016): Bee’s uneasy return to the low-profile gym life of her past only underlines how distant she now is from a boxing career and the people who once helped her.

Episode 9 (SABC 1, 8 April 2016): Smarting from her devastating defeat to Rushka, Bee realizes Lavinia has lost interest in her and earmarked a new contender. On Samkelo’s advice, she accepts humiliating undercard money fights – but starts thinking about retirement.

Episode 5 (SABC 1, 11 March 2016): After her dramatic win, Bee and Conference earn the support of a powerful women’s boxing coach, Lavinia Jacobs. Her ability to seemingly offer Bee the world is also, however, a devil’s
deal designed to pull her away from Conference.

Episode 4 (SABC 1, 4 March 2016): After her damaging participation in Smiley’s fight league, Bee resolves to win back Conference’s trust by dedication to winning a first competitive fight she still hasn’t had. However, the only fight now available could end Bee’s career before it starts.

Episode 3 (SABC1, 26 February 2016): As legal peril disrupts her life, Bee receives an unexpected offer of assistance that could make it all go away. Accepting it, however, would deepen her obligation to Smiley’s fight league and require her to break every promise she’s ever made to her coach, Conference.

Episode 2 (SABC1, 19 February 2016): Bee’s preparation for her first official fight is disrupted by Smiley’s threatening insistence that she owes him another fight in his illicit league.
