Tyler Perry’s The Haves & The Have Nots is back for a third, explosive season! The episode begins where the second season left off with Wyatt awakening from his sleep after hearing a noise. He walks through the house to investigate, finding his mother and sister sound asleep in bed. When he goes downstairs he notices the front door ajar and finds his father’s cell phone on the ground. He picks it up and looks around the house for him. When he does not find him he goes into his study, there he flashbacks about his own crimes and his father’s involvement with Candice. He pours himself a drink and finally musters up the courage to go through his phone and reads all the messages between Jim from Candice and Celine. Greatly disheartened he drinks the liquor and and angrily throws the phone out of the room!

Meanwhile, Hanna finds Michael has had a bit too much to drink and coaxes him into giving her his drink. they laugh and dance together happily about Benny’s recovery, but are briefly saddened by Lizzie’s demise. He holds her tightly, telling her how much cares for her. She advises him to eat some food and sober up. Benny pokes fun at her about Michael. He then tells her they are safe and he has “people” guarding the block with guns. Hanna warns him about getting involved with Candice’s situation and tells him Katheryn is coming by. He assures her she will not.

She immediately gets out of bed to get dressed. Candice’s goons bring Jim to their neighborhood and demand the residents “see nothing!” They take him to a basement and warn him that Candice has big plans for him. He warns them that he is running for governor and if he does not show up for his announcement tomorrow every law officer in the state will be looking for him, spelling their doom. Needless to say, they are not scared!

Next Week—> Jeffery questions Candice about escorting, Veronica attacks Maggie, Candice begins her torment of Jim
Who got shot? That is what everyone wants to know! I am glad Wyatt finally knows about his father and even more glad Hanna is going to have a good guy in her life. However, I see a love triangle forming between her, Michael, and Byron. Veronica very well may be the baddest woman on the show. She stopped Quincy when no one, not even Candice could. Kudos to an awesome episode Tyler!
