Katheryn and Hanna try to console him as he weeps, but his mother demands he stop acting like a “sissy at a church funeral,” and pull it together. She apologizes to Katheryn and tells her they are leaving. Jeffery refuses to go, saying he wants to stay. Katheryn tells him it is fine and that she will have her driver take his mother home. Veronica refuses and demands her son man up. She continues to berate him as he stares at a bottle of champagne on the table. She demands to know why he is looking at the bottle and he tells her because he wants to hit her over the head with it. She laughs at him and calls his bluff and continues to berate him.

Katheryn, Hanna, and Veronica are taken aback at Jeffrey’s actions! Veronica falls back into the chair and begins to hyperventilate, and Jeffery leaves. Veronica is in shock and Katheryn warns her not to touch the knife in her chest. She asks Hanna to call the police, but she hesitates, slightly enjoying Veronica’s pain. When she finally does call 911 she does not tell them it was Jeffery who stabbed her, but tells them to get there as soon as possible. Veronica tries to yell and tell the dispatcher it was her son but Hanna hangs up. Veronica does not believe she called anyone and makes Katheryn check. She confirms the paramedics are on their way. David goes to Jennifer’s office and demands she drop her case against The Cryers, feeling they had suffered enough. Jennifer refuses, recounting Lizzie’s life and Benny’s injuries.
