He also tells her he notices how disgusted she gets seeing that her son is in love with him. Veronica demands Jim get Wyatt in line after the funeral.
At the cemetery Candice arrives to give her condolences to The Cryers, much to Hanna’s chagrin. No one is happy to see her. The Cryers are quickly ushered to their car, while she and Veronica face off. The two exchange insults on make up, Veronica’s home, and even Quincy.

Candice gladly accepts, telling her mother she will see her soon.
Celine arrives home angrily, there her son Carlos tries to comfort her, realizing she has gone to see Jim about her job and their “deal.” He admonishes her for still being in love with him and mistreating them even though they too are his family. At The Cryer’s home, a detective arrives with pictures for Maggie, showing Veronica and Benny hooking up in David’s car. She tells him to follow Benny and see what he is up to. Inside, Veronica finds Melissa and decides to take her to Jeffrey. David decides to follow them despite Veronica’s protest. In the kitchen, Jeffrey finds Wyatt and tries to make sure he is okay. Wyatt, in turn, asks him about relationship with Landon and if he is now “full blown out of the closet.” Jeffrey tells him they had sex, and tries to get Wyatt to admit he too is into guys. Wyatt rebuffs his advances as Landon looks on.
Landon admonishes Jeffrey for being in love with Wyatt, but sees why he is. He tries to convince him that he is straight and not interested. Jeffrey tries to dismiss and tells him he is not interested in him. Jeffrey’s parents and Melissa interrupt their quarrel. Veronica tries to dismiss Landon and pushes Melissa on him but Jeffrey resists her. Veronica leaves, slightly amused. Melissa tries to stay with Jeffrey but he demands she leaves. She refuses, telling him she will wait in the other room. Maggie talks with David privately, warning him that the investigators believe his house fire was arson.

She reveals that Veronica is holding her family’s finances and home hostage and if she does not convince him to like her then she will foreclose on them and deny her father access to the cancer medications he needs. Candice tells her to come by her hotel that night and tells Jeffrey to buy several pregnancy tests. Jeffrey tries to dissuade Candice from going in the Cryers home, but she will not be stopped.
