Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots Theory: Did Wyatt Hit Little Lizzie?

In the first episode of Season 3, we have Wyatt wandering around the mansion after hearing a gunshot. Wyatt eventually finds Jim’s phone outside the front door and sits down to search through it.

The poor guy was emotional by all of the things that had occurred since Season 1; his assumptions about Candace and his father were proven to be correct by Quincy and perhaps the most important thing from his memories was him hitting Benny.

Last July, I wrote a blog about whether or not Wyatt was guilty of the hit-and-run charges for nearly killing Benny and the death of Little Lizzie.

I don’t know about you, but for me there is still a lot of doubt as to whether or not Little Lizzie was hit by Wyatt. We see Benny was hit by the car, but not the little girl. Something tells me that Tyler Perry wouldn’t openly show a little girl getting crushed underneath a car. With that being said, do you think there is still reasonable doubt that Wyatt did NOT hit Lizzie?


As I mentioned in my previous blog, drugs were the key factor in the little girl’s death but we never actually got the full story about what happened that night when Wyatt went to the crack house.

The little girl’s mother was high at the crack house too and she left her baby playing outside. Wyatt recalled getting beaten up when some guys at the house tried to rob him. He remembers falling on the ground and not being able to get back up because the guys were beating him up. Finally, he manages to push them off long enough to get to his car and drive off while some of the guys were still hanging onto the car but eventually fell off.


Remember Lizzie’s mother told the police that some guys were robbing a man (Wyatt) who came into the house wearing nice clothes and shoes so it looked like he had money. She then said someone driving the car (Wyatt) hit her baby, turned the car around and went up the street. After leaving the crack house, that was when Benny was hit. That was the story from the perspective of Lizzie’s mother who was high while everything was going on.

We don’t know if one of the guys trying to rob Wyatt had gotten his keys, taken the car, hit Lizzie and after realizing what they had done turned the vehicle around and from there that was when Wyatt took off after managing to get into Jeffery’s car. Considering that everyone was on drugs that night it is difficult to tell if anyone can actually remember what REALLY happened that night.

I think at some point the truth will eventually come to the light and for all we know Norman might be released from jail if the true murderer is caught for the hit-and-run (for Lizzie at least). Which could lead to Jim going to jail for trying to cover things up, but we could sit here and debate possible scenarios for days!

Wyatt may finally answer for hitting Benny or something like that because he does hold a lot of guilt even though Jim doesn’t want him to admit to his crimes. I think Hanna would forgive him due to Katheryn saving Benny’s life and Wyatt for sincerely being sorry for what he did. However, this is mostly speculation and I am hopeful that someday the truth will be revealed.

After all, as the Tyler Perry play was titled…


What do you think about this theory? Did Wyatt really hit Little Lizzie or is there more of a story to be told about that night at the crack house?
