7de Laan viewers got more than they bargained for this past weekend after an episode mishap.
Viewers were left confused after SABC 2 aired the coming week's episodes, instead of the previous weeks’, which revealed the sopie’s big plot twist.
Though confused, many viewers were excited about the storyline involving Hilda de Kock (Annelisa Weiland) and snobbish Mariaan Welman (Deirdre Wolhunter).
Since Deirdre’s character set foot in the Laan, she has caused a lot of unrest and drama.
"I love 7de Laan, I do not even care,” one fan commented on Facebook after the broadcaster’s mistake.
"No wonder Hilda and Mariaan are getting along so well,” another wrote excitedly. “When Mariaan has a problem she always feels comfortable sharing it with Hilda!”
The 7de Laan team apologised for the Sunday afternoon omnibus mishap, explaining that that it is the responsibility of the SABC to broadcast the correct episodes.
"Hopefully it will never happen again,” the producers said in a statement. “Please accept our apology for the inconvenience.”
