The biggest bomb has finally been dropped. Candace finds out her son is dead. Omg!!! What will she do? It was also good to see, and Candace does love someone other than herself. She loves her brother, Benny. Let's jump into the recap and review. It's time to discuss The Have and the Have Nots.
I was waiting for Candace response to Charles fix it method for Quincy's murder. I guess he also felt Candace was heartless. Candace turns down Charles offer. She could have it all with the most powerful man in the world; however, it would cause her brother's freedom. Candace refuse to let Benny go down for a murder he didn't do. Charles must have dig so deep into Candace's life. He knows way too much about everything. He seemed surprised that Candace made it clear, she would turn herself in before allowing her brother to go to jail. Charles doesn't know that kind of love. That's confusing because he has kids. Charles wants to take Candace to the inauguration. Being that she is wanted for murder, that wouldn't look good for him. Quincy's death is too public; someone has to take the blame for it. Candace can't believe Charles set her brother up for the murder. It all appeared to be smothering Candace. She asks Charles to leave her hotel room. By not agreeing to set Benny up, Candace gave up her start over opportunity.
It may be hope for Wyatt after all. Looks like he was trying to get his life in order. I am trying to understand how Anna is going to fit into this. Her and Wyatt flirt with each other a little. She is going to be staying with Wyatt for awhile. To keep Wyatt sober and clean a plan has to be done. Wyatt completed a questionnaire. Interesting he wanted to be a firefighter. Wyatt feels like his life always been controlled by Jim and Katheryn. Maybe it has but can't blame his choices on his parents. Wyatt has been through a lot, but his choices are on him. I think this time he will indeed stay clean. I also wish he stop seeing Jeffrey as a gay man that's in love with him. He is, but he is more of his friend who loves him. Anna seems to be making some breakthrough with Wyatt. However, I think his biggest test of sobriety is on the way. He gets a call from George about Jennifer Sallison. George tells Wyatt that Jennifer is dead. Wyatt knows his parents have the motive to kill her. Will he give his parents up?
Back at the police station, Veronica was able to get Hanna a visit with Benny. I swear Veronica never miss a chance at wearing her B card. Meaning her bitch card is always being played. She knows Hanna is Benny's mother not his grandmother. Smh. While Hanna visits Benny, Katheryn and Mitch sit in the lobby waiting. Katheryn questions Mitch on about his friendship with Benny. She makes a statement about his last name being powerful. We all know Mitch use his last name for power when he needs too. Other than that, he is just Mitch. Now Mitch is sexy, Katheryn's eyes aren't blind. She starts flirting with Mitch. She tells him I can use a man like you. Lmao. Mitch asked, " How much are you paying?" This scene was too funny. Mitch got away from Katheryn so fast. Remember, he clowned Benny for sleeping with Veronica. Mitch, older ladies need love too. Lol!!!
The hurt in Benny faces when he saw Hanna was powerful. That was a look of mama I am sorry for disappointing you. The love he has for Candace got him in this position. Hanna asked Benny again, "Did you kill Quincy?" Benny refuses to answer, but Veronica is sitting in on the visit. He can respond to the question, and the police can't use anything being said to his lawyer. Sadly, he can't say too much because Jeffrey is Veronica's son and his attorney. But he told Hanna who killed Quincy. Benny mentioned the Secret Service asking for his DNA. Veronica knows that isn't good. She gets up to handle that situation. Now Hanna and Benny can honest talk. Before Veronica leaves, she tells Benny to watch what he said. Once she is gone, Hanna asked Benny, "Did Jeffrey Harrington really kill Quincy?" Benny tells her, "yes but I can't say that in front of her." Veronica has a conflict of interest in this case. Regardless of her hate for her son sexuality, she will still protect him. Hanna blames everything on Candace. You can't deny that this whirlpool of events, lead right back to Candace. She has cost Benny so much already. But, why is Candace so messed up? Hanna played a role in that. What is her and Hanna beef with each other? I am lost on that issue. But Hanna is wrong on one thing, and Benny knows best; Candace doesn't know her son is dead. Regardless of the news coverage, she knows nothing. She doesn't have a phone, and when she did, she answers Benny's call. Hanna is very upset about the two men she loved most being affected by Candace's decisions. So much is happening at once. She asks God for relief and Benny telling her to calm down. So much heartache in Hanna's heart right now.
Veronica makes a phone call. She is trying to get information on the Secret Service agents. Right now, no one knows why they are involved. Once she enters the police lobby, Justin approaches her. Justin asked her to delete the recording she made. Veronica laughs at him. She is going to destroy Justin. Justin doesn't realize Veronica is a toxic, heartless and devious woman. She truly is about to expose him. Can Justin get out this predicament with his double life still being a secret?
Candace visits Erica. We soon find out what we thought was a friendship truly isn't a friendship. And am I the only one who think Candace and Erica had a sexual encounter at one point. How was Erica going by fixing her stress? Hmmmm. Candace vented out her troubles with Charles. She can't tell Erica too much, but Charles has Candace spooked. Candace is a new Path now, a high and powerful path. I don't think she ready for this lane. She tells Erica how Charles once her to let Benny take the fall for Quincy's murder. Sometimes it's best just to listen. Erica makes the fatal mistake of saying, "that's not a bad idea." Before you know it, Candace smacks the crap out of Erica. Girl, no way that should have happened. Candace uses to pimp Erica and made it clear she wasn't good at being a show. Lmao. Insult and a smack, hell no!!! Erica also made a mistake at leading Candace a dress with War's smell of cologne on it. When she questioned Erica, she didn't have any interaction with War. We know that's a lie. Did Candace believe her? If she didn't, she made it clear she will throw her out a window. Maybe Erica isn't time enough for Veronica as I thought. Hmmmmmm!!
Jennifer Sallison's body is about to be a problem. George arrives at the County Jail. He questions Katheryn about Jennifer being at her house. Car tracker and phone records place Jennifer's last whereabouts at the Cryer Mansion. Katheryn keeps her calm, but Veronica tells her not to say another word. Regardless of how much they hate each other at this point; if one goes down; they all go down. Veronica tells George, he knows better to be questioning her without a warrant. He makes it clear he will get one. Man, this episode had a lot of punch lines. George says to Veronica, "You sure representing a lot of people." Lmao!! Duh, isn't she a lawyer!!! Lol. Veronica tells Katheryn to meet her at her house in 15 mins. Katheryn doesn't trust Veronica, but at this point, she has no choice. They in this together whether they want to be or not.
Jeffrey visits Melissa in the hospital. Her mother walks in just as Jeffrey was trying to convince Melissa things will get better. He soon finds out, Melissa's mom is just as crazy as his mother. I understand why she says her father is the only person who loved her. How does her mother whore her daughter to a crazy woman for financial stability? What mother wants her daughter to have a baby by a gay man? Doris, Melissa's mom, basically tells her to grow up and get it together. She comes for Jeffrey by saying he likes hands jobs. Lmao. At times, you know Jeffrey is Veronica's son. He can become a queen when need to. He fires back with, " Gay or straight, and anybody can like a hand job." Lmao!!! He has a point. LMAO. Doris tells Jeffrey, Melissa will not be a problem anymore. She leaves. Melissa and Jeffrey agree that both of their mothers are crazy. At Melissa's request, Jeffrey leaves. I honestly feel the two need to become a best friend. They are stuck with each other at this point. They need to come together and find a way through this together.
Finally the bomb drops in Candace world. Charles was the speaker at a gun control event. At that event, he learns the little kid who was just murdered is Candace's son. Charles and Landon knock on the door. Candace isn't in the mood to deal with Charles. Charles tells her that her son is dead. For the first time, you see a side of Candace that has been lost throughout every season. We finally see her heart. I mean a fragile, tender and vulnerable piece of her heart. Even Landon felt a little empathy for her by the look on his face. As the tears flowed down Candace's face, she screamed for them to get out. At that moment for once, I felt sorry for Candace. At that moment for once, she knew she was the blame. Did you hear her say, "what did I do?" However, how much you want to bet she blame Hanna when she sees her.
Now that the cops know Jennifer was last at the Cryer mansion, Veronica has her plan. Veronica is pouring gasoline all around the house. Katheryn arrives and asked her what she was doing. Veronica states, "no evidence." Veronica refuses to go down for killing a District Attorney. Honestly, you can't blame her for that. Katheryn truly got them in a jam this time. Jim made it worst by pissing off Mama Rose. Katheryn doesn't want to burn her house down but honestly that house only has bad memories of her. If love once existed, it faded long ago. Why not burn all those bad memories? Katheryn gave in. Burn baby burn. The Cryer mansion is now on fire.
