Episode Rating Scale: (10) Exceptional
Omg, shut the front door. With a mother like Veronica, who needs enemies. Jim surely raised some questions for me. Poor Erica, you about to have two of the most devious and treacherous women team up against you. Season 5 is probably going to be the best season of this series. Let's close out Season 4 because it was epic.
The episode opened with Candace still hugging the wall. Benny tries to console her, but she doesn't want him touching her. She asked Benny, "why he didn't tell her Q was in the casket. Well, how can anyone tell her anything when she comes in there being a bully and pointing fingers. I have to give Tika Sumpter around of applause. Tika Sumpter does an excellent job playing the role of Candace Young, her facial expressions alone are so devilish. The Funeral Coordinator still needs the approval of how Baby Q looks. For now, Benny asked to leave the casket clothes. I don't think you can ever be ready to see anyone you love in a casket. Katheryn arrives in the middle of the drama.
So let me get this right. Candace kidnaps and blackmails Jim for 7 million dollars. War helps her and she lie about how much many she extorted. Mitch sets War up after seeing him rape Candace on the fence and find out about extorting money from her. The war goes to jail. Strike a deal with Jim after learning how much money Candace really took from him. Candace lied to War again. War threatens to kill Benny because Candace will do anything to protect Benny. The war goes on the warpath to kill Candace. Everyone including Hanna tried to protect Candace from War. So why is Candace blaming Hanna? This girl is crazy. She actually tells Hanna she did this to get back at her. Omg Candace!!! I know she hates Hanna but to that's very low. Hanna loved that baby. She would never deliberately put that baby in harm's way.
Hanna fires back at Candace. She tries to get Candace to see the era of her ways lead to her son being killed. As Candace tells Hanna, she can't wait till it's her in the casket so she can spit on her grave. Yes, Hanna gave it right back to her. She told Candace the world going to be lined up to spit on your grave. She never lied about that. Hanna made some valid points. When God wants your attention, he will get it one way or another. Candace screams you can keep your God; I don't want him. Candace decides to cremate Baby Q. So she is burning her son body just to undermine Hanna. Candace is truly a basket case. She walks out with Jonathan. Candace sees Katheryn. She stares her down and walks past her without saying a word. Once Candace leaves the room, Katheryn offers to call a judge. Hanna has custody of Baby Q. She can stop the cremation. However, she chooses not to. She told Katheryn it's her baby. One way or another Candace will wrap what she sow. All her pain will come crashing one day. Hanna and Benny say goodbye to Baby Q. After not having a prayer in her since Baby Q was murdered; Hanna once again found herself praying has she said goodbye to her grandson. See how God works.
Man, Veronica is rocking that wig. She is another basket case, but she is slaying them wigs. She checks in on Melissa. Melissa is depressed, suicidal and just on her pity party. She pregnant and don't want to be. Her baby father is gay and can't stand her. The only person that lived her died. Her mother pimped her out. Veronica can't stand her either. The only reason Veronica be bothered with her is that she is pregnant with her grandchild. Veronica thinks this baby will be her do-over. I would love to see what she do if her grandchild turns out to be gay as well. Veronica calls Jeffrey. She has been told Jeffrey to come home. David told Jeffrey to stay away from his mother. The right thing to do but Veronica is losing her patience. She tells Melissa she needs her help. Melissa can't even help her self right now. Amazing how Veronica calls everyone ghetto. She is just as ratchet and ghetto. She just a rich version. Lol. Melissa doesn't care about being pregnant. She doesn't care to eat. She doesn't care if Jeffrey comes home or not. When Melissa calls Jeffery a gay man, Veronica tried to smack her. She missed this time. Melissa blocked that real quick. Veronica hits the girls with a sandwich. She throws the sandwich on her. She insults the girl every chance she gets. Why does Veronica expect her to care for this baby?
A preach bumps into Wyatt at the park. As he and Anna walk in the park, Wyatt looks distracted. Could that preach be the man who molested him as a kid? Anna tries to get Wyatt to open up more about whats on his mind. Wyatt admits he thinks his parents could have had something to do with Jennifer Sallison's murder.
Candace arrives back at the hotel to find she can't use her room card. Home takes this moment to approach Candace. I honestly feel through all of Candace and Jim craziness, and he caught some feelings for her. I know he blames Candace for Amanda committing suicide. Then it's the extortion with the blackmail pictures. Candace learned it was Jim that told War how much many she extorted. So now it's Jim fault her son is dead. But Jim did having me wondering. His comment about hiring a mercenary to shoot pass Hanna and Baby Q is something he capable of doing. However, we all know Jim didn't do this. Jim shows no remorse for Candace. He tells her, " I don't forget nothing bitch!" Jim walks away feeling notorious. He thinks he won the battle with Candace. Candace stares at Jim as he walks back to his hotel room. She makes her mental note to self. She doesn't forget anything either.
Candace is down on her luck. Her son died. She has no money. No friends and nowhere to go. She sits in the bar area of the hotel. I guess she is trying to think of her next move. As she sits, Veronica joins her at the table. Candace isn't too happy to see her. Veronica informs Candace that there are four police officers outside waiting to arrest her for murder. Now Veronica supposes to be her lawyer but seems like she has something up her sleeve. For minute Candace is taking shots at Veronica. Veronica needs a favor from Candace. Dumb oh, Erica should have let the flowers be trash. So according to Veronica, Erika went back and took the vase the flowers were in. Yeah, Ericka isn't as skilled as I thought. Veronica planted a recorder in the vase. She heard everything that went on in Erica's hotel room. She knows about Candace placing a mark on David by using Erika. She knows David slept with Erika. She also knows Candace doesn't trust Erika. All this works in Veronica's favor to destroy David. Wow, Erika! Ericka just doesn't understand she has two basket cases about to team up with her. Ericka needs to be honest with David because she just got into deep. Veronica plays the recording for Candace. Now again she tells Candace she wants in on her plan for David. Candace refuses. No help for Veronica lands Candace in jail. Candace is arrested for the murder of Quincy.
The Veronica Show officially begins. Jeffrey is trying to get Justin to understand his mother will tell his wife. He tells Justin to tell his wife. But Justin seems to think Veronica is bluffing. Next thing you know, Veronica slides a note under Jeffery's hotel door. The note says, " I know he's in there." Jeffery and Justin go out the door and see Veronica walking to the elevator. Justin is ready to ring Veronica's neck, but Jeffrey keeps stopping him. Veronica makes it clear, Jeffrey you didn't come home, so payback is coming. She is on her way to court. Jeffrey tries to plead with his mother. Veronica doesn't want to hear anything Jeffrey has to say. Justin grabs Veronica, and she starts screaming Black Lives Matter. Lmao, this scene was just too funny to me. Veronica called Justin a bitch, a little girl and laughed in his face. She tells that man you only care about one black life. How can Justin not see how crazy this woman is? Justin better tells his wife. Veronica is going to say her in the most painful way possible. Veronica is headed to court. It looks like Jeffrey is led to jail and Justin is headed to divorce court.
Veronica visits Candace in jail. She asked, "Are you in or out?" Candace makes a deal with the devil. She agrees to team with Veronica to destroy David with Erika's help. Meanwhile, Erika is happy staying at David's place. Little do she knows, she about to have a hurricane and tornado gunning for each her. She plays the role well of pretending not to want David's money; as he prepares to take her on a shopping spree. Erika asked David can they go to the grocery store? Can she even cook? David tried again to get a name out of Erika. If she were smart, she would say War. He already dead. But I guess mentioning War would raise questions about her knowing Candace. Before they could leave, Jeffrey calls his father. He updated his father on Veronica's new threat. He tells his dad, his mother said he is going to jail. David tells Jeffrey to stay away from, his mother and don't go to the courthouse. Will Jeffrey listen or try to save Justin's secret?
On her way to the courtroom, Veronica gets a call. Melissa tried to kill the baby. She needs help. She is dealing with a lot, and no one seems to care; not even her mother. Veronica is headed to court so she can't deal with Melissa right now. Before she makes into the courtroom, she is stopped by George. George is convinced his case is solved with Candace being in jail and having a body. George question Veronica about her phone call to Jennifer Sallison. George knows Veronica and the Cryers are behind Jennifer's death, but I don't think he can hold a candle to Veronica. As long as Veronica is willing to keep quiet, Katheryn is in good hands. George is going to need a miracle to bring them down.
And the coffin is about to be dug. Veronica stuck to her word, and Candace will be free. George lost the best evidence he had over a technicality. Being that Candace didn't own the house at the time the body was found, the body is inadmissible. Candace just was set free. Why did Jeffrey go to that courtroom? His father told him to stay away Veronica. Then he arrives with Justin. It looked like Veronica was going to let it go until she saw them. Veronica drops the bomb that Jeffery killed Quincy. George and the Judge (Justin's wife) couldn't believe it. George can't believe Veronica just turned in her son. George and Veronica approach the judge. The judge and George try to figure Veronica out. She even told George the car keys belong to Jeffrey. Veronica pointed out that Jeffrey was in the back of the courtroom. Wow, Jeffrey is arrested for murder and Candace is free. Let me get this right. Candace is alive, and her son is dead. Candace is free, and her friend is in jail. I swear Candace is a cancer. Jeffrey keeps yelling ma, but Veronica did talking. She tells the judge she needs to remove herself from this case. Next thing you know, she plays the recording of Justin being half naked professing his love for Jeffrey. The burner has just been lit. The judge looked at Justin and recess caught. Veronica officially brought Justin out the closet. Man, she on a roll with her destruction.
Candace is out of jail. Once she gets her property, her phone rings. Guess who it is? Charles is on her line. I don't understand why she is not keeping him close. She needs that powerful man. Could Candace meet her match with Charles? He is having Candace followed. When will he give up on Candace? He seems very much into her. What will Candace next move be? She has no money, no home, no friends and hates her family. Where is she going?
In the last 10 minutes of the finale, the OMG moment leaves you with your mouth dropping. Who would have known the Veronica show was going to end so tragic? After court, Veronica had to deal with Melissa. Veronica and Melissa are driving in the car. Veronica is insulting Melissa in her usual manner. Melissa is looking so lost as she has been the last few episodes. Next thing you know, a pickup truck is running into the back of the car. For a minute, Melissa gets a little life back into her. She is laughing and happy about someone else hating Veronica as much as she does. Veronica is trying to keep the car steady and see who is hitting them from behind. And boom, it's Justin driving the pickup truck. Did Veronica think she was going to out that man to his wife and he just accepts it? He told her she would regret it and if she did this. Ha! Justin is hitting the car, and Melissa's life is meaningless to her right now. Melissa grabs the wheel of the car. Veronica can't control the vehicle. The car flips over with Melissa and Veronica inside. Omggg!!! Who will survive? What will be the injuries? Will Melissa still be pregnant? Be a good girl if Veronica gets amnesia for a few episodes. Lol.
Season (5) can only be epic. The plot thickens for Season (5). I can't wait. Binge on The Have and the Have Nots on Comcast On Demand.
