Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots Theory: Eenie, Meenie, Miny, Moe

Only a few more days until the Season 2 finale and someone will die! There are so many possible scenarios about who will get shot and who will be the one who pulls the trigger. I’m going to be working on an even bigger blog than this one called “Who Gets Shot?”

My mother and I once again had a  HAHN talk and you know what that means; more theories! We hashed things out and came up with multiple theories and scenarios about who shots who and how it goes down.


For now, I’m going to pick out one particular theory that I liked a lot. My mom says that while she was at work today the “Eenie, Meenie, Miny, Moe” game ran through her head. She talked about how if Amanda plays the entire game through the victim might be revealed. So tonight, we went through the song and here is what we came up with.

During Amanda’s psychotic game of “Eenie, Meenie, Miny, Moe” here is how “the players” rank;

Eenie = Wyatt

Meenie = Katheryn

Miny = Amanda/unborn child

Moe = Jim

Now let’s just assume (for the sake of this blog) that during the finale, one of these 4 will be the one that gets shot by Amanda during her “game.”


Based on the game, it seems Jim will be the one who gets shot because he is “Moe” which is the last word in the rhyme BUT let’s “play the game” all the way through and it might just reveal who will get shot.

The Original Tune;

Eenie, Meenie, Miny, Moe.

Catch a tiger by the toe.

If he hollers let me go.

Eenie, Meenie, Miny, Moe.


Amanda’s Tune;

Eenie, Meenie, Miny, Moe.

Catch a tiger by the toe.

If you shot him he will go.

Eenie, Meenie, Miny, Moe.

Alright, aside from the third line being slightly different the overall syllable count is the same.


Finally, let’s break it down to see who ends up as the last word of Amanda’s song:

Eenie = Wyatt

Meenie = Katheryn

Miny = Amanda/unborn child

Moe = Jim


Catch = Wyatt

A = Katheryn

Tiger = Amanda

By = Jim

The = Wyatt

Toe = Katheryn


If = Amanda

You = Jim

Shoot = Wyatt

Him = Katheryn

He = Amanda

Will = Jim

Go = Wyatt


Eenie = Katheryn

Meenie = Amanda

Miny = Jim

Moe = Wyatt


So, if she plays the game all the way through then Wyatt would be the person who gets shot! But if she only plays through the first verse of the song then her intended target will be Jim.

What do you think?

    OMG I think that Amanda shot HERSELF! Think about it she is crazy. Besides even if she did play the game all the way through she might have went backwards on the game and turned the gun on her self plus while running through the house at night she counts herself in it too!!!! 😮 I watched the season finale already and it was crazy I think she shot herself. Here’s what happened on the season finale of season 1 episode 36 the show is called checkmate anyways,Amanda found a new boyfriend. Her boyfriend wanted to know where Candace was. So he went into Amanda’s dad’s office to talk with him and started beating him up saying that he knew where Candace was because he messed around with her. Then he left and so that night Amanda only put the gun on three people…person number one was her brother person number two was her mom and she ran through the house
    saying eenie meenie minie moe eenie was the brother
    meenie was the mom minie was the brother and moe was the mom
    then she went again but when she got to minie she pointed to herself then she went as fast as she could eenie meenie
    Minie moe eenie meenie minie mo running in the house. So Amanda’s going back and forth from her brother to her mom to herself singing the song and then the cameras points toward the house and you can’t see anything but the house and after that part all, you heard was BOOM! The show goes off I’d really like to know what happened I hope that another one comes on.

  6. […] Since Jim was kidnapped and taken away by Warlock’s crew, we know that he was not a victim of the shooting. It narrows the field down to 3 (potentially 4) victims of Amanda’s game of Eenie, Meenie, Miny, Moe. […]

  7. […] There are a couple of clues that hint at Katheryn actually shooting her daughter during her game of Eenie, Meenie, Miney, Moe; […]

  8. […] we come to the scene that we’ve all been waiting for; Eenie, Meenie, Miney, Mo! Amanda runs around the house and the gunshot is fired ending Season […]
