"The audience is very upset," said Rosa Marie.

"Last night [Wednesday] the right episode aired, but because Tuesday's episode was not, nothing made sense. With Friday's episode aired, certain storylines were missing. Everyone is just now confused.

Rosa-Marie said the 7de Laan team only discovered what had happened mid-broadcast. She realised something was amiss when fans pointed out the snippets she was tweeting had nothing to do with what was on TV screens across SA.
