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

By Jeremy Carden

11907208_914450651960723_2040476160599964211_n

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.

I cannot wait until January 5th because it will be a brand new era of HAHN blogs for Season 4!

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?

Tyler Perry’s The Haves and The Have Nots Theory: Will “Oscar” Return?

By Jeremy Carden

11907208_914450651960723_2040476160599964211_n

January 5th will be here before you know it, and I will try to fill in the gap as much as I can with my blogs! I have to help keep the HAHN community on their toes while thinking about what we were left with after the Season 3 finale!

CMLEbUcWUAAmZSV

The topic of this blog will focus on Brandon; the asset recovery agent better known as Oscar. He swept Candace off of her feet this season, but then pulled the rug from under her feet as well!

Despite his name being Brandon, I am still going to refer to him as Oscar during a majority of this blog because he was called Oscar for almost every episode that he was seen in before the finale.

My #1 question when thinking about this topic is not about Oscar or what he does. I mentioned in a blog awhile back that he was working for David, and I was right about that!

screenshot_68

It really is not a surprise that he did what he did because we know that David was going to pull one over on Candace at some point. Remember that he told her that he stalks and studies his prey before pouncing on them!

The-Haves-and-the-Have-Nots-Dianna-Whinchil-11442994750000_us_own_320

Even though he got Jim’s money back (really Katheryn’s money); their friendship is null and void.

I am curious why Oscar decided to go to Candace’s house after he had already retrieved the money from her bank account.

After their phone conversation, Oscar should have known better than to go to the home of a black woman that he had just screwed over!

1440552430000_us_own_320

I think the funniest part was the fact that Candace and Oscar had this lovely communication together. Candace was really feeling him, and you could tell that their “relationship” was changing her for the better. She still had that independent sass, but she let him into her heart which was a first for her.

Screenshot_6

Then to hear her go ghetto over the phone when she “knew” that he had something to do with her empty bank account, I was literally rolling because the bad bitch had returned!

Brandon might have dealt with many women in the past while doing his job, but it seems clear that he has never dealt with a true black woman before. Seriously, if I heard a woman’s voice like that over the phone, the LAST thing that I would do is go over to her house!

1439355130000_us_own_320

You knew that she was not playing about her money! I mean the last time that they saw each other; you could feel the chemistry between the two. Then he sent her all of those flowers to show that he missed her.

When he came into the house, Candace had a knife behind her back! Then after some verbal blows from each side, it seemed that Oscar was able to confirm that Candace’s money was not really her money after all.

Alright, so he said that while she was sleeping; he was able to know everything there was to know about her by going through her computer. Then that line about her being busy as an escort to make that much money must have worn her out…

Man….

1442993601000_us_own_320

Wow, I could not believe he said that! Even though he said the sex was great, he just kept going on about how easy she made everything in order to find out who she REALLY was.

Then Candace went for the stab, Oscar caught her hand and wrestled her to the couch!

My reaction:

BoyThatEscalatedQuickly

I was curious if he was trying to rape her on the couch, I mean if you look at the position they were in…

She kept screaming for him to get off of him, and he kept saying that the sex was great. Perhaps it was just to overpower her to the point that she could not stab him.

12036631_10205157864852845_7075788191364366444_n

Then a mystery man pulled Oscar off of Candace, pinned him against the wall, punched him and grabbed Candace while she was trying to escape.

11988408_1259347714091344_8947682856119250085_n

The first time I watched the episode, I was thinking that it was Jeffery because it was a black hand that grabbed Oscar’s shoulder. However, it was Candace’s worst nightmare; Quincy!

After the assault, Oscar sprinted out of there while he left Candace to her fate. Then he went to David and Jim’s campaign off to deliver the information to David.

He tells him all about the expenses and information that he received from her computer before departing.

1438749814000_us_own_320

I do not think that we have seen the last of “Brandon.” Considering that Candy Cane does not let go of those who have screwed her over, I think Oscar had better fly to another continent to have a chance of escaping Candace’s wrath. Honestly, I do not even think that would be enough…

Her attention is now on Jim in order to reignite the flame signifying the war between them. The same can be said for him because he told David that after his family situation is handled, he will make Candace pay for Amanda’s death.

OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network

Basically, these two are angry at the wrong people! Candace should be furious at David for screwing her over, and Jim should be furious at Professor Cannon for raping his daughter. He did manage to have his executed, but that is still not enough because he wants Candace to pay.

Needless to say, these 2 will once again collide during Season 4. However, both of them have a lot on their plates to deal with now before another round of their battle can begin.

11178188_1259532994072816_4304584695600378353_n

For starters, Candace has no money and no job! Not to mention there is a “dead body” in the middle of her floor!

12063821_10205159141484760_4666387977096830873_n

Jim has just reclaimed her mantle as a potential front-runner for governor, but he has just been taken into police custody by the D.A.

They both have a lot to take care of before they can attack each other, but there is no telling who will be caught in their crossfire this time!

Where does this leave Oscar?

I really do not see why he would return, but just like Quincy “dying”…I think there is more to the story that we have yet to discover.

1440562315000_us_own_320

My guess as to why he returned to Candace’s house was simply to keep playing the game that he was Oscar, and to get the verbal confirmation that Candace was a con-artist like he is (well that is his professional career).

These two are actually more alike than they might care to admit. Maybe they were made for each other! However, I still would not have recommended going back to her house especially after he had gotten the money!

One possible reason that he might show up again is if he is named as the person who murdered Quincy! I’m just saying that unless Candace and Jeffery can discard the body; they will need some sort of alibi!

12006081_887584401331038_8628378199341240651_njefferey930

There is a dead body in the house, and they are both drenched in blood. True, Jeffery committed the murder as an act of self-defense, but there is still a lot to resolve with that.

Candace might try to pin Oscar as the culprit because Jeffrey knew he was the only other person that was coming over to Candace’s house that day before he got there. However, “Oscar” was a false persona so if she tried to pin it on him…that might prove to be difficult for a man who technically doesn’t exist.

screenshot_151

Do you think that Oscar/Brandon will return in Season 4? Will Candace get revenge on him for taking back the money that was never really her money to begin with?

Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots Theory: Is Hanna a Good Christian?

By Jeremy Carden

11907208_914450651960723_2040476160599964211_n

Is it just me or is it getting too darn hot in here? Yeah, I know I’m going to catch a lot of heat for this blog…

Honestly, I’ve wanted to write this blog since the first few episodes of Season 3. However, I felt that it was important to wait for the entire season to end before working on this. For the sake of character development, I placed this topic on my to-do-list after the finale aired.

hannah_haves_summer_bible-592x330

One of the biggest debates going on between HAHN fans is about the type of Christian that Hanna really is. Does she represent a real Christian woman, or is she simply a Bible-carrying hypocrite?

Before I move to the next section of the blog, I want you to take a few minutes to watch the video below:

It illustrates the kind of “Christian” that Tyler Perry wrote for the series, and the role that Crystal Fox has been bringing to life onscreen.

ep119-own-hhn-4-365x240

Do I think that Hanna is a good Christian?

I think that Hanna IS a Christian. Who am I to judge Hanna on whether or not she is a good Christian?

The only person who can truly judge on her being a good or bad Christian is God!

Like everyone who has ever lived, Hanna has some things about her past that she is not proud of. She lived a life that was not pleasing to God. We do not know a lot about her pre-Christian life, but we know that she was very similar to the way that Candace is now.

iuuio

Benny and Candace have different fathers, and Hanna used to run around with a lot of men (some married). At one point, one of these “boyfriends” raped Candace when she was a little girl (I think she was 5).

After that dramatic event, Candace began to change into the woman that she is today.  Hanna said that Candace was ashamed of her for being a maid, took her income tax money one year to buy a laptop and began lying to her about everything.

Then Candace was nearly killed by a pimp, and after taking her daughter back into her home; the Young family was threatened by that pimp because he said he would kill them all. However, this unnamed pimp was eventually killed himself before coming after Candace and her family.

11880626_10204917851572663_1569380142509859390_n

Moving forward, Candace got together with Quincy and had a baby. Hanna took care of the child for 2 years, but Candace came to take back her son. She was then tricked by Quincy into thinking that paying him $50,000 would be the “price” needed for her to leave him for good with her son.

She gave him the money, but was told that on a fishing trip; Quincy threw their son into the river which resulted in him being killed.

Screenshot_2

Of course, we know that Quincy nearly beat her to death because Benny went to pick her up. However, she was beaten beyond recognition to the point that he walked past her when he arrived to get her. That led to Benny foreclosing on Hanna’s house for the $50,000 to give to Candace, and the doctor bills that she needed after recovering from her assault.

One of the few other things that we know about Hanna’s pre-HAHN life was that she had a sister who died from a drug overdose.

What does any of this have to do with Hanna’s Christianity and faith?

It is important to cover her past, the present (what we’ve seen in HAHN Seasons 1-3) and her possible future.

Hanna is a human being just like the rest of us! For any readers who are Christians (like myself), it is important to realize that there is a never-ending struggle between balancing faith and human nature.

If Crystal Fox is reading this, I want her to know that she is OWN-ing (pun intended) the role of Hanna! As she stated in the video, she did not have any intention of trying to play a perfect Christian, and I think she is bringing the role to life.

I am writing a detailed blog about a fictional character, and that goes to show the incredible talent that goes into the HAHN. The cast and Tyler Perry truly bring these characters to life.

With that being said, let’s take a look at Hanna’s development from Episode 1 to the finale of Season 3. Strap yourselves in because we have A LOT of ground to cover. Speaking of humanity, I am a human myself. If there are any important events or scenes that I overlook (not purposefully), you can inform me in the comment section below.

Season 1, we quickly see that Hanna is a trustworthy woman. She is aware of who she is, where she came from and her faith in God. It is clear that Benny is her baby, but Candace is like the child that she failed with.

Hanna is a very independent woman, and her house is clear evidence of that fact. You could tell that her life (after becoming a Christian trying to make an honest living) was spent working to pay it off. That was why she was so hurt when she found out that Benny foreclosed it, and then when it was destroyed by Quincy.

Overall, she is a hardworking woman that wants to make an honest living. Even by being a maid, she is cheerful about what she has even if it does make her a “Have Not.”

She was the first person to truly show Katheryn Cryer what it was like to have a true friend. Hanna’s faith and friendship were the reasons why Katheryn was able to make it through her battle with cancer.

After Benny was placed in jail under false pretenses (everything planned out by David and his detective), Katheryn was able to get Veronica to assist Hanna. During this time, there was a real strain that widen the gap between Hanna and Candace. She wanted her daughter to tell the truth because Benny was caught in a bind due to her own deceptive ways!

ep110-own-hhn-5-600x411

The scene with Hanna praying with David has to be one of the most powerful moments in Season 1! That proved to David that Hanna was NOT planning on destroying the Cryers from the inside out with Candace’s assistance!

Similar to Candace, Hanna did not have a good relationship with Veronica. She pretty much turned her nose up at the maid, and Hanna was not a fan of her uppity attitude. Thankfully, the two appeared to be in a better place after Veronica got Benny out of jail. Wow, I’m glad that was worked out! Hopefully, knowing ruins this new found mutual respect between these two strong black women of different social statuses!

Oh wait…

ep107-own-hhn-6-600x411

Despite being a maid, Hanna really cared about the well being of Amanda and Wyatt. This was shown when she was concerned about Amanda when she was in the hospital, and when Wyatt almost tricked her into getting drugs for him.

Season 1 was a good way of setting up who Hanna is as a mother, friend, Christian and person. She has her shortcomings (but who doesn’t?), but does not allow them to get in the way of who she is.

Now, I will get into Season 2! Throughout this season, Hanna is basically discovering that those close to her are not people she can fully trust. I will get into her interactions with Tony and Celine because they are prime candidates for this subject!

Tony-step-up-500

During Season 1, we learned that Tony is Benny’s deadbeat father. Hanna was not mincing words with the man, and it was clear that there was no love lost between these 2. There was almost a connection between them when he said that he could somehow assist Benny with getting out of jail because he was railroaded.

What could have been a positive turn for his relationship with Benny and Hanna, it is later discovered that he only wanted to be a part of Benny’s life in order to find out if he would be the right donor for him to get a new kidney.

ep123-own-hhn-2-600x411

His selfish side came out even more when he wanted Benny taken off of life support in order to obtain a kidney. Then with him taking Hanna to court in the midst of her grief over Benny, and then putting her in jail because it was assumed that she hid Benny; Tony ruined any chances of getting connected with the Youngs.

Not to mention that he lied to Benny’s face about why he wanted him taken off of life support. I do not believe that we have seen the last of Tony, but as far as Hanna is concerned; it wouldn’t matter to her if she never saw him again.

ep210-own-hhn-6-949x534

It really hurts me to go into Hanna’s friendship with Celine. Their “is proof that you cannot call everyone a friend, and those close to you might end up giving you a colder shoulder than wearing a short sleeve shirt in the wintertime!

The two have known each other for a couple of years, and they seemed to help each other in difficult times. However, when Hanna cleaned Jim’s shoes…we learned that Celine was very territorial of him for some reason.

From that point on, there was tension between the two because Katheryn was giving Hanna the attention that she never received from her. It was truly every maid for herself once Hanna was given the position head of staff position within the Cryer Mansion.

The climax of their tension was when Hanna and Celine got into a catfight!

Hanna’s only friend at that point was Katheryn, and their friendship was tested after she learned that Wyatt was the one to hit Benny. Then with Jim trying to make Hanna think that she was crazy by saying that she did not hear what Wyatt said after he came home high, Hanna was through with the Cryers.

haves2

Things took an even darker turn when Hanna told the police that Wyatt hit Benny and Little Lizzie. Even though Katheryn moved Benny to a private hospital and got Hanna out of jail; Wyatt was arrested and the two friends were once again at a crossroad.

It was great to see the two rekindle their friendship towards the end of the season when Katheryn offered Hanna her job back!

ep130-own-hhn-3-949x534

Hanna was overjoyed when Benny was released from the hospital (despite some personality defects that have yet to be addressed), and her baby was home once again.

We see Hanna get into a love triangle of sorts with Byron and Michael. Byron was a detective hired by Jim to watch Hanna, and to see if she would drop dime on Wyatt. It was sad to see the two get so close, but then he ended up betraying Hanna.

ep131-own-hhn-5-949x534

The other sad thing to witness was that Hanna pushed away a good man (Michael), but was letting the snake in the grass (Byron) get close to her.

Screenshot_14

Once Quincy was released from prison, Hanna was assaulted by the evil brought into her home by Candace. This caused even more tension between her and Candace because Candy Cane was the reason he came to her house in the first place!

zap-the-haves-and-the-have-nots-season-2-photo-002

Overall, I think that Season 1 established that Hanna was a woman of faith. Season 2 was a true test of that faith.

You have to think about Hanna literally having everyone in her life betraying her or using her in some way. Then Benny was on the brink of death for nearly the entire season, and he was the only good thing about her life.

I feel that this season showed that Hanna is a Christian, and even though she knows that God knows best; understanding why He does what He does is not always an easy task.

Screenshot_6

She really felt alone during this season without letting anyone assist her (except Byron), and even when Candace tried to lend a helping hand it was a tense situation. It truly was a good buildup for the Hanna that we see in next season.

Screenshot_2

Finally, we get to Season 3! The opening scene of the season was Benny’s “Welcome Home” celebration. Fans were outraged to see Hanna (a Christian who was drinking and dancing the night away) during the first 5 minutes after the opening credits!

Personally, I had no problem with her drinking a couple of beers and having a good time. Seriously, this was one of the first times that we’ve seen a smile on the woman’s face since Season 1!!!

the-haves-and-the-have-nots_1_29_640x480_5390395330286

After everything that she went through in Season 2, Hanna deserved to relax, have fun and enjoy herself for just one night!

There was one particular moment during the episode that had me curious. It was when she told a saddened Michael to relax and enjoy the celebration of her son’s return home. The only reason I was puzzled during this scene was because of a what-if scenario.

What if…Michael’s granddaughter was the one who lived, but Benny was the one who died? Let’s say Michael held a party for Little Lizzie’s return home, and he invited Hanna to come to the festivities? Would she be able to lighten up and have a good time despite her grief?

ep213-own-hhn-6-949x534

My guess is no given how she was acting when she thought Benny was going to die. To be fair, she was living in a reality with all of her “friends” using, lying or betraying her in some way.

One of the biggest events of the early episodes of Season 3 involving Hanna’s character was her almost having sex with a drunken Michael; she was about to go all the way until Benny walked in on them.

Was she in the wrong?

Again, she is a human and she even pointed out to Michael that she would have given into the flesh if Benny had not walked in on them. Most fans call Hanna a hypocrite for shaming Benny for his sexual encounters with Veronica.

Seriously, I’m not making excuses for what Hanna ALMOST did with Michael. However, the circumstances were different!

Screenshot_22

Benny was having sex with a married woman! Yeah, I know the Ice Queen is old enough to be his mother, but age is just a number…

I will get more into Hanna’s speech to Michael after Benny walked in on them later in the blog because it really falls in line with what I have to say about Candace.

Later on in the season, Hanna tells Michael that she can’t see him for awhile. It is just until she gets right with herself (and God) after what they almost did. She was not in a place where she could handle being in a relationship or being “friends with benefits.”

In hindsight, I think that she was pushing away a good man. However, I give Hanna props for being honest with Michael AND herself. There was no need in pursuing a relationship if she would not be able to give it her all. Her mind was truly distracted with Benny and her missing grandson.

Moving away from the Young household, Hanna’s next form of development came after discovering Amanda’s dead body. She was there for the Cryers when they needed it the most. Hanna was a true friend to Katheryn, and was there by her side from the time she walked through the door until she was allowed to go home after the police were there.

If anything, she is one of the few people who can calm down both Wyatt and Jim! I went into this in another blog, but the scene between her and Jim was one of the highlights of Season 3. Her Christianity truly showed when she comforted Jim after he told her to leave his house after she got a cleaning crew to cleanse Amanda’s room.

I really don’t have much to say here other than Hanna bringing God into the Cryer house when they needed it the most.

Katheryn’s trip to Hanna’s house was another great scene that shows Hanna being there for her friend when she needed it the most. She truly is the glue that helps to keep the Cryer family together.

Screenshot_6

I guess you can say that the next highlight of Hanna’s character development was when she went to Candace’s hotel room with Benny. This scene was when it was revealed to Benny (and the viewers) about what happened when Candace was molested by one of Hanna’s boyfriends.

Screenshot_8

Honestly, I think this was the climax of Hanna’s character development in terms of her relationship with Candace (before her grandchild was brought into the show). She told her that she did not approve of what she was doing with her life, and it would all end to a dead end. Hanna knew that all of Candace’s wealth came from ill-gotten funds.

Of course she was right, but she loves her daughter! That hug she gave Candace was real, and for Candace to breakdown into tears was a sight to see! To be fair, Candace was shocked by her mother’s words and actions.

I could see where this was coming from because the only other times that she lifted a finger to Candace was to slap her.

ep124-own-hhn-10-949x534

That scene to me was Hanna saying that despite your sinful ways, I love you more than you know. She feels that Candace can become a good person, and after seeing her battle Tony in the courtroom for Benny’s life; Candace has the skills to do some real good!

Moving a bit further towards the end of the finale, I feel like Hanna kind of contradicted this powerful scene. I think that Hanna jumping to the conclusion that Candace was the reason behind her house being destroyed was just a major step backwards from what we saw in the hotel room.

Screenshot_21

It is hard to believe that she loves her daughter when she instantly assumes the WORST about Candace. Seriously, go back and watch the episode before the finale along with the first 10 minutes of the finale. Hanna jumps down on Candace extremely hard, and I really did feel sorry for her.

The downside was that Candace was telling half-truths to Benny and Hanna about everything that she had recently acquired. She was telling the truth about being legit when it came to the subject of paying for the houses, car(s) and Tow Company.

screenshot_6

However, she refused to tell how she came into her money…

Hanna did not mince words when it came to the subject of Candace getting her a car, and knowing that she would not accept it by giving it to her personally. That was why she had Erica sell it to Benny, and he gave it to Hanna.

She was not buying it, but for once…Candace was thinking of her mom. That was a truly sweet sentiment, but how she got the money for the vehicle was not.

After discovering that Candace has no money, Hanna and Benny left Candace to her own devices. We then see Hanna refuse to stay in a house that she knew was not bought by ill-gotten money.

Overall, we saw Hanna take the highroad by stating that she loved her daughter no matter how. However, I feel like she backtracked during the last few episodes of Season 3.

Screenshot_11

You must admit that despite everything, Hanna will not tolerate anyone mistreating her child. Remember that she put her foot down when she discovered Candace being held hostage by the Cryers. Candace seems to be the fork in the road when it comes to her friendship with Katheryn.

Funny how some fans view Hanna’s refusal of anyone else hurting her child, but she lays her hands on her when she chooses (mostly through physical hits). Finding a black woman who has never struck her child is like trying to find a woman that Jim has not slept with…

hannah-qunicy-hahn

The final subject of this blog is going to cover Hanna and Quincy Jr. It goes without saying that Hanna is the BEST person to take care of him, and I know that subject has caused a rift between HAHN fans.

I’ve said it on Twitter, multiple blogs and Facebook posts; Hanna IS a better “mother” than Candace.

Hear me out, Hanna has made mistakes and is somewhat responsible for how Candace turned out. However, Candace IS capable of becoming a good person. Just as Hanna did, Candace can change her life around for the better. Hanna pointed out multiple times that Candace has not had that “awakening moment” in her life that will make her give herself to Christ.

ep101-own-hhn-11-600x411

This is one of the primary reasons that there is a rift between her and Candace. If you ask me, Hanna is somewhat haunted by Candace. Her daughter is pretty much the living embodiment of Hanna’s past life, and looking at Candace must be like looking at past self in a mirror.

ep203-own-hhn-2-949x534

Candace’s presence makes Veronica’s skin crawl because of the same reason. The two are more alike than they would care to admit, and Candace is the “Have Not” version of Veronica when you compare the two.

I honestly do not feel that I need to go into a full explanation of why Hanna is the better caretaker for Quincy Jr. because I have stated it in past blogs.

Screenshot_17

The bottom line is this: Candace knew that her son was alive, but instead of looking for him with her many contacts, she was living it up in New York with Oscar!

Just that one statement alone should tell you where her true allegiance lies; with herself! Again, I do think that she has the potential to become a loving mother, and a good person. However, that has not happened yet…

During the “Quincy Jr. Saga”, Hanna’s character was a bit strained in terms of her doing some lowdown things in her favor. Things like getting Aaliyah the social services worker to bend the rules in order to increase her chances of getting her grandson. I mean the woman almost lost her job because of Hanna.

Not to mention, Hanna was quick to tell her about Candace’s evil ways. I mean that was a mother talking bad about her child, BUT you have to realize that it was done with Quincy Jr. in mind.

11863266_10204920113469209_613813163746399775_n

Given the circumstances, I can see why she did what she did. The last time Candace took him away, he was being abused! As the doctor stated, if Benny had not brought him to the hospital when he did…he might have died from his wounds being infected!

Some fans did bring up a good point about Hanna having Quincy Jr. would have been no better than Quincy having him. The reason behind that is Quincy made their son think that Candy Cane didn’t want anything to do with him. Hanna might have done something similar in terms of keeping him away from Candace.

I can see where the fans are coming from because in either scenario, Candace would have still been separated from her son. However, I think that after Hanna saw a true change in her daughter, she would have allowed her back into Quincy Jr.’s life.

Screenshot_12

My biggest concern is her house being destroyed, and a sight visit is fast approaching! I wonder how Hanna is going to get out of this mess!

In the end, Hanna reminds me of my own mother in some ways. She is a strong black woman with a fear of God in her heart. However, she is also a parent (a black mother!) and she does not mess around!

If you ask me, she IS a Christian in my book! However, she is rough around the edges like a lot of people. She has her faults, but who doesn’t?

Screenshot_25

Do you think that she is a Christian or a hypocrite?
