The Haves & The Have Nots begins with Jim in disbelief over Wyatt’s death. He questions Hanna about his son’s whereabouts and did he die alone. She tells him she does not know and only came to tell him because Katheryn did not have the heart. Jim demands to speak with Jennifer, but when the guards refuse to allow him to go he begs Hanna for her help. She leaves saddened, but refusing to help him any further.
Veronica shows Melissa and Jeffery their room and the things she has bought for the baby. She leaves them to get comfortable. Melissa is amazed at everything Veronica has done, while Jeffery feels she has been nothing more than a gold digger this entire time. She tells him she has no choice and has to take care of her parents. She laments about how she hates how he looks at her with disgust and that if he could come up with a way to take his mother down and still allow her to achieve the same outcome then she would help him. He tells her he does not have a plan. David arrives and demands Veronica tell him where Jeffrey is. She tells him he is upstairs in his room with Melissa having a “private moment.” David demands he come down and speak to him, there he tells Jeffery they are leaving. Jeffrey tells him he cannot and implies Veronica is once again blackmailing him. He refuses to tell his father what he has done. David leaves defeated.
