Meanwhile, Hanna is at the hospital frantically trying to see her son, Benny, and speak to doctors about his condition. While at the hospital, Hanna meets Michael and is moved by his grief.

However, despite his reluctant acceptance to adopt his mother's code of conduct, Jeffery goes on a surprise date with Landon, a man he met at a gay bar. Later, Maggie presents Katheryn and Veronica with a plan to eliminate Candace as a problem once and for all. Will they have the stomach to do what their husbands' campaign manager is asking of them? Finally, Tony wins his case to have Benny taken off life support.

However, things really heat up when Candace crashes the party and tries to extort money from the Cryers. Fed up with her games, Jim sets a plan in motion to end her meddling for good. Meanwhile, Hanna sits in jail, mourning the loss of her son. She learns that Tony had her arrested, accusing her of moving Benny without power of attorney. Hanna is confused by this accusation until a conversation with Katheryn reveals that she had Benny moved to a private hospital. As they talk, Katheryn learns of Hanna's incarceration and pulls some strings to get her out.

During a citywide press conference, Jim proclaims his son's innocence of the heinous double hit-and-run that killed a little girl and left Benny in critical condition.

The gubernatorial candidate professes to have settled with Donald out of court, the actions of a loving, if misguided, father.

David continues to be supportive of Jeffery and attempts to understand his life by talking with Landon. However, David encounters another personal problem when Maggie oversteps her professional boundaries. Meanwhile, Quincy, the father of Candace's child, shows up at Candace and Amanda's apartment, and Amanda discovers that Candace's past is more of an enigma than she thought. Elsewhere, Jim pays the still-captive Candace a visit and gives her a final chance to save her life.
David is put in a precarious position when Maggie invites him to her room after a few drinks, but he resolves to stay out of his house because Veronica still refuses to divulge the whereabouts of Jeffery's car. Later, Veronica is rattled when Quincy breaks in to her bedroom in the middle of the night. The ex-con also works Amanda in order to gather more information about what Candace has been up to.

Then, Veronica arrives at campaign headquarters to speak with David and issue a few threats to Maggie. Sparks fly at Katheryn's dinner party when David sees Jeffery with Melissa. Although David encourages Jeffery to be himself, Veronica still has Jeffery under her thumb. The party takes a turn for the worse, though, when Quincy shows up and confronts Jim about sleeping with Candace, and the situation turns violent. As he leaves, Quincy reveals to Amanda that Jim had had an affair with Candace. Later that night, Maggie propositions David again and leaves the door that adjoins their rooms unlocked. This time, David walks through the door. Back at the Cryer mansion, a gang of thugs kidnaps Jim as part of Candace's revenge plot.
