Find out what happened in the second season finale of Netflix's Blood and Water

Wow, the season two finale of Blood and Water surprised us with a storyline twist. The seven-episode season, which premiered on Netflix on September 24, was chock-full of shocking revelations, and just when we thought the mystery surrounding Puleng (Ama Qamata) and Fikile (Khosi Ngema) — now confirmed to be Phumelele Khumalo — had been solved, the season finale revealed even more secrets. If you're still reeling from the show's insane ending, let us break it down for you and answer some of your burning questions while we wait to see if it'll be renewed for another season.

Fikile's Real Father: Who Is He?

The entire family proceeds forward with a second test after Puleng shares the genuine DNA results from the manipulated lab test with her parents, to confirm if Fikile is indeed the daughter of both of Puleng's parents, Thandeka (Gail Mabalane) and Julius (Getmore Sithole). As a result, the detective discovers that Fikile is only Thandeka's daughter, and hence Puleng's half sister. Julius asked his wife to have an abortion before Phume was born because he had reservations that she would be his biological child, as you may recall from an earlier episode. Now that his family has validated his suspicions about his wife's suspected adultery, the question still remains: who is Fikile's actual father? This seems to be another mystery that will be dragged into season three, which hopefully gets confirmed sooner rather than later.

Janet and Samuel: What Happens Next?

Now that we know Samuel's mother, Janet (Zikhona Sodlala), is implicated in the Phume kidnapping operation, we can see that her position is far more complicated than we first imagined. Samuel (Leroy Siyafa) begs his mother to reveal the truth to both Fikile and the police after realizing that she has been dealing with the kidnappers/traffickers. Someone breaks into her house, attacks her, steals her laptop, and the DNA kit to suppress the evidence because of her intimate ties to the case. The authorities then advise her to go into witness protection with Samuel to ensure their safety. Samuel is also advised to keep away from Fikile because her connection to the house invasion could put his entire family in danger, so they go off the grid right away, and Fikile is unable to contact him. We had no clue these two new individuals would play such a significant role in this season's complicated plot, but now we know we're only scratching the surface.

What Takes Place during the Ball?

The school ball, as expected, turns out to be a near-total disaster due to Reece's (Greteli Fincham) money troubles. Things swiftly devolve due to the low-budget cuisine and DIY DJ set, and Principal Daniels (Sandi Schultz) has a lot of questions for the dance committee. Daniels still wants to know why the dance appears so low-budget this year, despite the fact that KB (Thabang Molaba) finally came through with an outstanding DJ (courtesy of his father's credit card). Reece is feeling the heat because the school is already under fire for its extensive drug problem, and she eventually admits to Daniels that she was the one providing drugs at school and the reason the committee's money was taken. It'll be interesting to see how Daniels deals with the kids next season, as it's a minor subplot that's turned into a larger issue (if her character manages to keep her job).

Do Puleng and Wade reconcile?

Another mystery that came to a head this season was Puleng and Wade's (Dillon Windvogel) hot and cold relationship. Wade believed he was being used for Puleng's convenience throughout the inquiry into Phume's kidnapping, and his old feelings resurfacing damaged his relationship with Tahira (Mekaila Mathys). Despite the turbulence, Puleng and Wade manage to work out their differences — and even flirt with the idea of dating each other. After Fikile sees Puleng making out with KB in the backroom, we last see the two on incredibly friendly terms at the school ball. So, who will Puleng choose for next season? Only time will tell, it seemed.

Is KB and Puleng still dating?

Even after publicly humiliating Puleng in a diss song for supposedly cheating on him, KB finds himself going on her door to apologize at the start of the finale. Despite the fact that their relationship appears to be beyond repair at first, they both find it in their hearts to forgive each other for their transgressions. KB, on the other hand, remains committed to assisting Puleng in the investigation of his mother's participation in the kidnapping case after discovering a sketch of her in Puleng's chamber. Their research brings them back together, and KB admits that he still has feelings for Puleng, kissing him goodbye. Now, if Puleng and Wade weren't already seeing each other, this wouldn't be such a big deal, but the love triangle is back on.

Fikile's Mother: What Happens Next?

In just one season, the tables have turned against Nwabisa (Xolile Tshabalala). Nwabisa is caught for her part in Fikile/kidnapping Phume's operation after being cornered by detectives in her own home, and she has managed to pull her entire family down with her. She maintains her tale that she legitimately adopted Fikile when being probed by cops, but we already know that the controversy surrounding the Point of Grace adoption agency means Fikile/Phume was kidnapped at birth. Despite the fact that she is definitely guilty of something, she insists on clearing her husband's name because he is unaware of Fikile's origin tale.

There's also a storyline twist that culminates with Nwabisa being abducted (how ironic), and we're surprised to learn that it's KB's mother who is to blame. Yes, we now know she's another puppet master working behind the scenes to keep the truth of Phume's kidnapping hidden (and also a serial kidnapper at this point). After confining Nwabisa in what appears to be an abandoned warehouse, the two engage in a heated exchange, with KB's mother inquiring about Puleng. If and when the program returns, we'll know exactly what the new storyline will include, and it'll undoubtedly be an amazing premiere.
