Tyler Perry’s The Haves and The Have Nots Theory: Do I Work for Tyler Perry?

By Jeremy Carden

There is a subject that I should address once and for all. Many of my faithful readers have been asking me about a particular topic ever since I posted my first HAHN blog. It has to do with whether or not I am a staff writer, ghostwriter or mystery writer for Tyler Perry Studios.

I must admit that if I were a HAHN fan reading blogs like these from someone who can create such elaborate twists and plots for where the story will go, I would think that person was one of Tyler Perry’s writers myself!

However, this is NOT the case…

ep107-own-hhn-2-600x411

You have no idea how much I would love to work for Tyler Perry Studios! Considering that I have been writing on this blog for over 2 years without a cent to show for it, you know that I am crazy about the HAHN!

I graduated with my Master’s in Theological Studies from Liberty University in 2014, and I have been working as an Academic Advisor in the school’s online department for the past year.

Working in a call center has taught me how to deal with many types of people, and gave me a new appreciation for good customer service. It goes without saying that I have to deal with unruly students from time to time.

ep136-own-hhn-13-949x534

If I worked as a writer for Mr. Perry on this hit show making good money, do you really think that I would still be working in a call center?

That is NOT a rhetorical question to throw off suspicion, or that my job in a call center is a cover-up for me being a staff writer.

hahn-july-14

Usually, I have the same face as Candace (shown above) while I am on the phone with someone being rude or unruly. However, I thank God for giving me the patience to help work through problems with angry students to come up with a positive solution.

My mother and I watched the first episode of HAHN on OWN when it premiered back in 2013.

7800cb64103c753b382a2d9d40cc3a9b

From there, I discovered that 140 characters on a mere tweet were not enough to express our thoughts and theories. That was when I first began to write theory blogs for the show.

Funny story, it was actually a tweet from Tika Sumpter/Candace that inspired me to do my very first blog.

ep108-own-hhn-5-949x534

It had to do with the episode “Angry Sex” when Candace told Jim about how she feels no sympathy towards him because he has everything, but he is willing to throw it all away because he is bored with it.

I believe my question to her through a tweet had to do with Candace’s own issues. She responded that Candace knows that she is imperfect, but is secure with her own imperfections making her who she is.

Tika asked me what did I thought about that statement. Of course, I could not put my full thoughts into a single tweet, and that was how my first blog began. The topic was whether or not Jim was in love with Candace, and the rest is history!

oprah.com-20150826-hhn-222-promo-2-949x534-550x309

Whether or not Mr. Perry has actually read one of my blogs is still a mystery to me. However, I have heard back from nearly EVERY character on the HAHN through Twitter and Facebook!

It is such an amazing feeling to have the cast members retweet, favor or tweet back to one of my tweets where I provide a link to my blog. It makes all of the time that I put into my blogs worth it.

Even if I never receive a thin dime from TP Studios for my writing, I am still happy to know that the cast members enjoy my work. The same can be said for any readers of my blog who comment or like the post. Just one like on it means that my mission was accomplished.

ep116-own-hhn-7-600x411

Hopefully, this puts an end to the questions regarding my “position” with Tyler Perry Studios. I am not provided with any episode summaries, scripts or anything like that to use as material for my blogs.

My mother and I practically talk about this show EVERY SINGLE DAY either in person or over the phone. We come up with theories based on previous episodes, and our own personal thoughts on where the story will go next. That explains where all of my theories for the new episodes come from for each blog.

Screenshot_40

The #1 theory (at least in my mom’s mind) is that the show itself is all going on in the mind of Katheryn Cryer due to her having a dream while in surgery for her breast cancer.

Again, I appreciate everyone who has helped me in some way with my blog. Whether it was sharing my blog with other HAHN viewers, or sending a kind word with a tweet.

Even though I do not officially work for TP Studios, I would like to think that I do work for it.

Why?

Well with each blog that I write (especially during the show’s hiatus times), I like to keep fans thinking about where the season ended. Then it helps to spark interest before the new season even starts up! So, in my own little way, I do what I can to increase fans for the series.

Dragon Ball Super: Have Goku and Vegeta Surpassed Beerus?

By Jeremy Carden

1500x500

I must say that the Dragon Ball Super manga has blown me away with such amazing storytelling and action! Even though there are multiple inconsistencies with the manga (and anime) when compared to the original Dragon Ball Z series, I still enjoy reading the manga chapters.

What I think is the most amazing thing about the Dragon Ball Super franchise is the fact that I get to follow it from start to finish. I did not get into the series until I was about 11-years-old, and by that time the manga was done. The anime (in the United States) was in the Kid Buu Saga, and I was fresh to the scene.

In this case, I got to see the Dragon Ball Super series begin with episode 1, and read the manga from Chapter 1. Overall, I just feel privileged to be living in a time like this!

dragon-ball-super-episode-19

Now, I am truly excited to see that Goku and Vegeta have finally begun training together. Considering that they are rivals, I think that their training is much more effective as a result. I can see them learning from each other, and really growing as a result. They are probably trying to one-up each other in their sparring sessions.

According to the manga, they trained in the Hyperbolic Time Chamber for 3 years (3 days in our time). Looking past the obvious inconsistency here (only being able to use the room for 48 hours in a lifetime; established by Mr. Popo in DBZ), that is truly impressive!

hqdefault

I have heard that the Time Chamber was rebuilt after the Buu Saga, and it now allows visitors to use it for more than 48 hours total. Remember that it was destroyed during the battle between Super Buu and Gotenks (Piccolo blew up the door), and apparently rebuilt when the world was restored after being destroyed by Kid Buu.

Whis pointed out the flaws in each Saiyan as an individual, and taught them about how to control their new godly ki. Goku’s carefree attitude which made him vulnerable was the opposite of Vegeta’s uptight demeanor that prevents him from fighting at his maximum potential in a battle.

maxresdefault

At some point in the anime, Whis says that there was no longer a need to train the two Saiyans. During their sparring sessions together, the Saiyans’ innate fighting abilities resulted in them progressing much quicker than Whis had originally anticipated.

Overall, Whis’ goal was to get the Saiyans to become more in tune with their new godly ki. This was why he did not allow them to become Super Saiyan or beyond during their training, and only wanted them in base form to master their new powers. Even though Whis pointed out to the Oracle Fish (in the anime) that the Saiyans knew this which was why he never had to outright tell them to train in base form.

Screenshot_2

Beerus was annoyed by the constant noise that the Saiyans were making, and he told Whis to send him to “that place.” It turned out to be a Hyperbolic Time Chamber-like voice where Goku and Vegeta were surrounded by godly energy.

Whis told them that they must raise their powers without it leaking out of their bodies because it would alert their opponents to the power-up.

Screenshot_1

Vegeta noticed that until they mastered Whis’ tip, they would not be able to move at all in “that place.” He figured this out because Goku which once again shows that he is a better tactician than his Saiyan rival.

It is unknown exactly how long Goku and Vegeta were in “that place” training in order to master their new godly powers. Goku mentioned that the measurement of time in “that place” was different than the outside world.

SS_5

Eventually, Whis releases the two back into the real world. Like the length of time they were in “that place”, it is unknown how much more powerful the two had become. The only thing that we know came as a result was the Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan transformation.

Screenshot_49

The one thing that I felt caught my attention during their time in “that place” was Whis’ staff. Goku figured that it was the only way of getting out of the void. Take a look at the picture above of Whis’ staff just floating there.

DBS

I always wondered what Goku and Vegeta’s walk towards the light in the opening theme of Dragon Ball Super was all about. After seeing them train, I think that I have figured it out.

zzjoD2O

From that same light, we see Beerus/Champa along with Whis/Vados descend to the front of our television (or computer) screens.

Overall, I think Goku and Vegeta approaching that light was their ascension to the level of gods. Then seeing the 4 gods mentioned above coming out from that light is proof of Goku and Vegeta trying to follow in their footsteps in order to reach a higher power.

giphy

This is further backed up by the fact that the next scene shows Goku, Vegeta, Gohan and Goten fighting off Frieza’s soldiers; which symbolized the Resurrection F saga which is happening now.

12316229_672381489571792_7139689757280640473_n

I guess one difference is that in the anime, Frieza powering up to his final form killed his remaining soliders before Goku and Vegeta could take them on; minus Vegeta killing Tagoma (well Ginyu).

tumblr_nydy1cSTY01rqe0rbo1_500

Alright, Whis mentioned that Goku and Vegeta had a chance at beating Beerus if they teamed up. Super Saiyan Blue is more powerful than Super Saiyan God, and this means SS Blue is more powerful than the 70% Beerus that we saw in the first movie.

Frieza_pounds_Goku

Individually, I do not think that SS Blue Goku or Vegeta could defeat Beerus. I think that is proven by the fact that Golden Frieza (before his ki began to fall) was more powerful than SS Blue Goku, but he was still frightened of Beerus.

photo

Beerus would probably need to exhaust around 85% or so to defeat the likes of Golden Frieza, and 80% for a single SS Blue opponent.

Again, that is just my opinion with a tiny bit of power scaling based on what has been seen from the movies.

hyperbolic-620x

Moving on with the Time Chamber training, Goku and Vegeta train in 10 times gravity for 3 years. During that time, it would not surprise me if the duo reached Super Saiyan Blue 2 and Super Saiyan Blue 3!

super_saiyan_blue

However, Akira stated in an interview that the SS2 and SS3 transformations were a thing of the past with the main focus being on SS1 because it was the form that utilized the least ki consumption and strain on the user’s body.

I do not know if SS Blue will be the last transformation that we will see in the series. Unless we get to see an SS Blue Vegito or Gogeta!

12279032_752677184876219_4481707266210295481_n

Something tells me that at some point during the Champa Saga or afterwards; Goku and Vegeta will fuse! I have already written a couple of blogs with my thoughts on that subject.

f2tpdq

Back to the subject of this blog, I do not see any reason why Goku and Vegeta have NOT surpassed Beerus after their 3 years of training. We are talking about a God of Destruction who does nothing aside from eating, sleeping and watching anime (Whis mentioned that to Goku and the others.

jlvhdzr

Compare that purple cat to a couple of warriors who eat, breathe and do nothing but train! I truly believe that their training has resulted in them surpassing the God of Destruction. Unless they get into a battle again with Beerus, I am not sure if they are even aware of their increase in power to the point of rivaling Beerus or surpassing him.

dbsuper-cartas2

I do not think that they have surpassed Whis, but I think a fusion between the two would give him one heck of a battle. Why? Given the time that the two have trained with each other instead of training separately against each other, I think it is safe to say that they know each other like the back of their hands.

Seeing if the two have truly mastered Whis’ training of their weaknesses is something that I would like to see. After the time spent fighting each other, I think they might have seen what makes the other Saiyan a genius in their own right. Vegeta’s polished and tactical strategies vs. Goku’s out-of-the box techniques that keep even the most dangerous opponents on their toes.

screenshot_301

Imagine a Gogeta or Vegito that is made up of a Goku and Vegeta that have trained/sparred together for YEARS! I think it is obvious that fusion would be a true blend on even terms of Goku’s relaxed nature and Vegeta’s tense demeanor.

4595745-whis_rof

Whis would be in for one heck of a fight if you ask me!

3 years is a long time, and the Saiyans know how to improve their skills in a short period of time. Just thinking about how much they could have advanced in 3 years is just unbelievable. I wonder if there are any of the Universe 6 opponents who are near the level of Goku and Vegeta now.

Universe-6-vs-Universe-7-dragon-ball-super-fighters

Do you think that Goku and Vegeta have surpassed Beerus? Did they reach a new transformation or fuse in the Time Chamber? Will there be anyone from Universe 6 that can truly give them a challenge?

Tyler Perry’s The Haves and The Have Nots Theory: Will Warlock Switch Sides?

By Jeremy Carden

11907208_914450651960723_2040476160599964211_n

Will Candace lose it all during Season 4?

I know that I do not normally begin a blog with a question, but this topic has been rolling around in my head for awhile now. At the end of Season 3, Candace lost her money, trust of her family, her son and almost lost her life.

12006081_887584401331038_8628378199341240651_n

She basically has to start from scratch again because she does not even have a penny to her name right now. Quincy is bleeding out on her floor, and Jeffrey is the only person who knew what happened in the living room (aside from Brandon who rushed out of the house the minute Quincy attacked).

This blog is about Candace losing Warlock who could be considered both her hired muscle and possible love interest.

ep201-own-hhn-1-949x534

Warlock is like Candace’s (or Candy Cane’s) older brother out on the streets. He is the “Benny” in the criminal or ghetto side of town that Candace looks to for protection.

It cannot be denied that there is some sexual tension between the two.

Candace wants him to go straight with a legit career instead of hustling. Warlock is not completely open to the idea, but Candace wants him to have a better life.

It could be her way of showing appreciation for everything that he has done for her in the past. After Jim had movers clean out her apartment, they took away Amanda and Candace’s possessions.

ep132-own-hhn-10-949x534

Candace was now at rock bottom, and Warlock helped her out. He gave her $5,000 until she got on her feet, and then assisted with her revenge on Jim.

He was clearly hesitant at first because this was a judge who was running for governor. Jim would come down hard on Warlock, and in turn that would cripple his operations. However, he stuck out his neck for Candy Cane and it paid off.

She gave him the $100,000 that she promised him, and an additional $50,000 as well.

ep203-own-hhn-15-949x534

Though she did lie to Warlock about how much money she extorted from him. Candace told him that it was $400,000, but in reality it was millions!

How do you think that Warlock will react when he finds out the truth?

Remember that even though Candace did give him what she promised and more; she lied to him. Warlock put his neck out for her because as I mentioned before, if Jim did come back with the law…War would have been out of business and behind bars!

ep202-own-hhn-3-949x534

It was a good thing that she had the blackmail to keep Jim in check with the photos and sex videos.

Haves-Benny-Candace-1024x682

We can assume that she wanted War to go into business with Benny at the towing company because his business smarts would help Benny succeed. I am not sure if that was Candace’s original plan, but it would be a good way of helping her pull in some much needed cash!

ep202-own-hhn-5-949x534

Jim tried to persuade War to switch sides on Candace by letting him free, and pulling a double-cross on Candy Cane. However, he told Jim that on this side of the tracks (the Have Nots); they have each other’s backs and they do not turn coats.

ep202-own-hhn-4-949x534

It really hints at War being furious when Candy Cane lied to his face about the money. Something tells me that he would have known she was lying about a mere $400,000 if Jim had told War how much money Amanda’s inheritance was.

Remember that he said things would have been so much easier for Jim if he had given her the money. However, it was millions of dollars that was in danger of him losing to Candace. Again, War would have been smart enough to know Candace would not have gone through so much trouble abducting Jim who was sitting on millions for less than half a million!

ep212-own-hhn-8-949x534

The way Warlock finds out about Candace’s lies are beyond me at this point, but I think Benny might tell him. I could see Warlock giving Benny a call to see if Candace was doing alright, and Benny tells him the situation; Candace claiming to have a legit lawyer job, buying cars/houses/tow company, but then losing millions resulting in an empty bank account.

War will put two and two together because he knows she didn’t have a job, he knows how she got the money, but thought he knew how much she had!

Regardless, I really am curious how things will turn out if he does find out about her lying about the money. She will be in a lot of trouble if you ask me!

ep132-own-hhn-5-949x534

Do you think War will turn on Candace is he finds out about her lies? How will War find out about her lying to him? Will War help out Jim because of what Candace did to him? If War finds out about Quincy’s death, how will he react?

Tyler Perry’s The Haves and The Have Nots Theory: Candace Gets the Haves out of Jail

By Jeremy Carden

11907208_914450651960723_2040476160599964211_n

January 5th will be here before you know it, and Season 4 will be gracing the screens of our televisions once again. I am truly excited to know that it is now officially less than a month before the HAHN makes it glorious return!

vb3oy

Recently, I posted a meme on Facebook and Twitter outlining the last 3 blogs that I would do before the show came back.

Thankfully, I was able to come up with a blog topic that I never thought of until today! I still plan on writing blogs about the 3 topics above.

Screenshot_11

It is a theory about Candace doing something that is highly unexpected of her. My prediction is that Candace gets the Haves (Jim, Katheryn, David and Veronica) out of prison!

You are probably wondering why in the world she would do something “nice” like that. Not to mention, I think it is also going to be a bit difficult for her to do such a task given the circumstances:

Screenshot_10

  1. It is unknown whether or not Professor Cannon gave Candace a new letter allowing her to skip to the bar exam before he was killed. Remember that when Jim had movers take Amanda’s things from Candace’s apartment, he also had Candace’s possessions taken as well; including the original letter Cannon gave her in exchange for telling Amanda to stop stalking him. Candace did call him to ask for a new letter, but it is never mentioned if she got the letter from him off-screen.

12006081_887584401331038_8628378199341240651_n

  1. Candace and Jeffrey have enough on their plate with Quincy’s (potentially) dead body on the floor!

Screenshot_37

What would make Candace even want to help out the Cryers and Harringtons?

I think it comes down to 2 reasons that may or may not end up being linked together:

  1. Hanna forces her daughter to do something to help the Haves
  2. Candace has her own motives for wanting to get them out of jail

Why would Hanna make Candace get them out of prison?

12011162_10153592432058119_8676135903021593258_n

Remember that Candace never explained to Hanna and Benny how she came into that much money (millions of dollars), and at some point she will have to tell the truth. I can imagine that Hanna would not find out about everyone being sent to prison until she goes to work the next day.

Screenshot_21

True, she does not have a house and have Quincy Jr. in her care at a hotel (or motel). If she does not go to work, I can imagine that she will do something in order to give Quincy Jr. a place to stay. Aaliyah said that she would come back for a home check, and Hanna will need something to present to them to secure that little Q is in her custody.

Screenshot_12

She will go to Benny’s house, admit that her house was destroyed by Quincy Sr. or ask Katheryn for the help that she turned down a few episodes ago.

After finding out that her boss is now in jail, the secrets will have to come out of the closet.

Screenshot_33

Hanna is still in the dark about the Haves covering up for Wyatt hitting Benny and Little Lizzie. Wyatt almost told her, but Veronica stopped him before he could.

Going back to what I said before, if Hanna does find out about Candace extorting the money from Jim; she will make her get them out of jail as reparations for what she did (not sure if that will happen if she knows about the cover up of Benny being run over).

Haves-and-Have-Nots

Candace would have her own reasons to get them out of jail. It would be “nice” to at least get Katheryn out of prison. Benny would have been dead if Katheryn did not help to move him into another hospital! Candace was even surprised when Benny told her about that.

I am not sure why she would get David and Veronica out of jail. Unless Jeffrey pulls the “if I didn’t save you when I did; Quincy would have killed you” card making her do it!

Screenshot_9

Jim on the other hand…

CMLEbUcWUAAmZSV

Candace has no money at this point, and it is really because of David sending Brandon (Oscar) into her life to take it back. Her fury is directed at Jim (mistakenly), and she could keep him in jail.

I think that she will visit him with a choice to make. Of course, each time Jim is not in a position where he can come out on top. She will get him out of jail on the condition that he gives her money (either the same amount or more than she originally took), or he rots behind the prison bars.

12072721_1261576870535095_112248355617356106_n

Let’s say he agrees in order to be released, she still has the photos and sex taps from the War Room as blackmail to check him in check. I can imagine that Jeffrey finds out about her parents being locked away (thanks to Wyatt) on TV or something, and then Candace finds out.

She will use this to her advantage in order to get what she wants (money and revenge). In any case, I have explained why she will potentially get them out of prison. Now, I have to speculate on how she is going to pull this off.

The-Haves-and-the-Have-Nots-Season-1-Episode-20-Unanswered-Calls

I mean if she does not have the letter from Cannon, she will have to cram to pass the bar exam. She could work with Maggie or someone in order to get a “fake” degree to be the lawyer representing the Haves.

Remember that when Tony had Hanna in court for Benny to be taken off of life support, Candace walked into the front of the court in an impressive display of knowledge that held the final court decision off (without her degree!).

As Hanna told her, if she really put her mind to her law studies, she would make an amazing lawyer some day! This would be her chance to do it because of the stakes being so high.

Screenshot_15

Wyatt said that he would testify against his parents and the Harringtons in court. Will he admit to the hit-and-run charges in a public courtroom? If so, how in the world will Jennifer make it so that he gets no jail time?

Can you imagine Candace in court representing the Haves, and she is performing a pretty good case making it appear as if they are really going to be released.

Screenshot_26

However, Wyatt makes a surprise appearance during the case to go to the stand. Candace finds out why Wyatt is there and is shocked to learn that he hit Benny! Jeffrey knows about this but has not told Candace…

Either way, this is going to be very interesting in the grand scheme of things! How do you think this will go down?

Screenshot_28

Will Candace help the Haves get out of prison? Will the Haves be stuck behind prison bars? Will Candace get her revenge on Jim? How will Candace react when she learns about Wyatt hitting Benny? Can Candace regain her lost fortune?
