This episode wasn't as turned up as I would have liked it to be but it had some interesting moments. I think Katheryn gave me the hardest laugh tho. Hmmm, Jim wasn't too far behind. Them two is something else. Silly me for thinking through all the heartache, pain and scandals; Jim was ready to put the love back into marriage with Katheryn. As he lay there repeatedly saying I love you, Katheryn, apart of me believes that. Katheryn has endured so much. You can hear it. Between Jim cheating all the time, Amanda's issues, Wyatt's issue and her trying to keep it together; that's a lot. You can't help but wonder why Jim stopped being in love with Katheryn. Where did their marriage go wrong? Katheryn is done with Jim. I guess she just needed that itch scratched.
Jim repeatedly tried to convince Katheryn he loves her and wants their marriage. Katheryn did what most women would do, asked questions that only a man in love would remember. What's my birthday? What's the kids birthday? What's our anniversary?. Jim got two out of three right, what that means? Lol. Katheryn isn't the same person, and Jim has lost her. His sex game couldn't reel her back in. Katheryn too funny. She told Jim she would blow his brains out just as easy as I blew you. If it's that easy, Jim better pays attention. I guess Jim will be joining David in divorce court.
Erica fake abusive fiance has gotten her into David's apartment. As she gets settled in, David calls and check on Jeffery. David is trying to get Jeffrey out of this murder case with Candace. He asked Jeffrey about a set of keys and bracelet the police have as evidence. Jeffrey admits to the keys being his keys but not a bracelet. We all know the bracelet belongs to Benny but does Jeffrey know. I mean, he knows Benny buried the body right? David reminds Jeffrey to stay away from his mother. David fears that if Veronica continues to push Jeffrey; Jeffrey will snap. This time he might kill his mother. Jeffrey agrees to stay away from his mother. But he asked his father he going to do something to her. David still loves Veronica, and he will never hurt her. After hanging up with David, Jeffrey gets a call from Wyatt. He wears a kool aid hearing Wyatt's voice. I must admit, seeing Wyatt sober Wyatt too bad. Wyatt invites Jeffrey out to the park with him and Anna. All that Jeffrey has going on him not up to it. However, you can tell Jeffrey is happy that Wyatt is getting his self together. Will he say sober is the true question? Wyatt mentioned Justin being at his house with the DNA. Wyatt tells Jeffrey to stay away from him because he is weird. Justin isn't weird tho. He feels in love with a man, while married to a woman and he is living a double life. A secret he wants to stay a secret. I guess that's what makes him seem off to everyone. Jeffrey calls Justin after talking to Wyatt. As always, Justin dropped what he is doing and headed to speak to Jeffrey.
I like Erica and David together. I wish he weren't a mark for her. I was hoping she feels for him, but I guess her fear of Candace trumps love. As she enjoys the scenery of David's home, they share a drink. You can tell David is starting to fall for her. He began opening up about Jeffrey and Jeffrey's issues with Veronica. David must have caught himself because he changed the subject. Could David be lonely or is he feeling Erica? Only time will tell. As Erica continues to play her dismal in the distressed card, David invites her into his bed. He makes his clear she will not be on the couch. He wants her to share his bed every night she there. We all know she is not leaving anytime soon, but Erica makes it sound good. She tells David one night at a time. Before they can head out for dinner, David gets a call from Jim. Jim has lost his mind. He wants David to take one for the team because he did. So sleeping with Katheryn was suppose to make her mind clear. Jim hasn't been attractive to Katheryn in years. Somehow he thought sleeping with her would give him control over Katheryn. Wth? Now, David having sex with Veronica. David refused that thought several times. Jim tries to convince David, but that's one for the team David will pass on no matter what Jim said. For some reason, Jim feels Katheryn and Veronica are out of control. But, why does he think him and David can calm this two ladies storms.
Justin arrives at Jeffrey's hotel room. Again, Jeffrey tries to convince Justin to get help to deal with his issues. Sadly, Justin doesn't feel he as an issue. He does have anger issues, but I wonder if that's because he not being who he is. Why is Justin living this double life? We don't know too much about him and his life. That would be interesting to find out. It's a reason he in the closet other than denial. Veronica calls while Justin is there. Jeffrey tries to ignore her calls, but she keeps calling. Finally, Jeffrey answers. Either she is following Justin or her Spidey senses is on 1000. She knew Justin was there. She repeatedly tries to get Jeffrey to come home. Once that doesn't work, she plays the only card she has left. She tells Jeffrey to put the phone on speaker. She makes it clear that if Jeffrey isn't at her house soon, she will be in court explaining why her charges should be dropped. She will expose Justin to his wife and with the pictures to prove it. Justin tells her he is warning her. Too bad Justin doesn't know Veronica, but Jeffrey does. After she hung up the phone, Jeffrey warns Justin that Veronica will do as she said. For some reason, Justin thinks she wouldn't. Justin thinks again. Veronica about to destroy your life honey.
Landon apologizes to Charles for his behavior about his relationship with Candace. Landon did what he was ordered to do. He cleaned Candace internet lifestyle. The escort site has disappeared. Charles thanks, Landon and for once they share a not so tense conversation. Landon congratulations Charles. Charles invited Landon for drinks in the Oval office. Charles then excuses Landon so he can call Candace. As always Candace isn't so nice. She is interested in why Charles called her. The man is just checking on the woman. She did just lose her son. Amazing how she can't handle someone being time enough for her. She tells Charles she is headed to the funeral home. How is that going to go with Hanna and Benny being there? I know Candace has to feel alone right now. I still can't find in me to feel sorry for her.
Benny and Hanna arrive at the funeral home. Hanna isn't ready to view Baby Q's body even though that's why they are there. Katheryn has agreed to pay for Baby Q's funeral. Though Katheryn's is the person paying Hanna is still trying not to get something too expensive. The casket is picked out, and other decisions have to be made. Should the casket be open and close? Is the obituary probably done? So much to do when someone dies. It is so much sadder when that someone hasn't begun to live life. Candace shows up in the middle of the final arrangements for the funeral.
Now, this chick has truly lost her mind. I know her and Hanna have the worst mother and daughter relationship, but to blame her isn't fair or right. Candace never wants to accept responsibility in nothing. Her actions and lifestyle are the reason why her son is dead. Hanna, Benny, and Mitch could be dead as well. It could be four funerals to prepare for. Despite their differences, Hanna loves that baby. She fought for her grandson. She got on her knees to Candace and begged for her grandson. I know Candace is hurting but blame yourself first. Getting War killed doesn't change that void and that burden. Then again we are talking about Candace. She may or may not have a soul. All the arrangements Hanna made for Baby Q; Candace wants none of it. Hanna picked an inexpensive white casket. Candace wants the expensive blue casket. Finally, Benny gets to see the real Candace. She flips on Benny. Now it's Benny's fault. If Benny wouldn't share his dreams and need for money to make them happen; she wouldn't blackmail Jim. Lmao. This chick is out her mind. I was happy Benny checked her tho. I hope after this he realizes he can't help or save Candace. Benny has been there for Candace just as well. Even now he could be going to jail once they discover the owner of that bracelet. Candace is bickering about everything about the funeral arrangements. She doesn't want Katheryn to pay for anything. She tells the funeral coordinator, she will bring him cash. Everyone knows Candace is broke. That's when Hanna connects the dots. She tells Candace she is blackmailing the guy running for president. Now they know why Benny was in jail. Candace denies it, but Hanna knows her daughter. Candace lashes out backfires. As she repeatedly says, she doesn't want the white casket. She walks to the blue casket and says she wants this one. Her intentions of opening that casket and probably knocking it over backfired. She opened that casket and found her dead son lying there. They were viewing his body. The purpose of the visit to the funeral home. Candace hugs that wall in tears and screams. I still couldn't bring myself to feel sorry for her. Maybe if she showed some remorse, I could.
As this episode end, I can't help but wonder; what is the finale going to bring. Stay tuned cause I know I will. If you missed any episodes binge on Comcast On Demand.
