Will Candace’s Father Appear on The Show? | Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots

By Jeremy Carden

Considering that Hanna told Candace about her father, I have no doubt in my mind that this mystery man will eventually appear on the HAHN.

Why?

Screenshot_130

The most important takeaway from Hanna’s story was the information given about the lion tattoo. This is evident by the fact that the episode was called “The Lion.” She described it as a tattoo that seemed to be staring at her while she was being raped by that man.

Something tells me that this man will appear later this season. Nothing is confirmed, but I do not think the tattoo would have been elaborated on unless it would appear again in the story.

Hanna warned Candace that she could be sleeping with her father without even knowing it because of the numerous men that she hops into bed with.

Screenshot_188

With the tattoo now being revealed as somewhat of an omen, do you think Candace will eventually encounter it during one of her sexual escapades?

Since the season has just started, it will take a few more episode to see if this plot point will ever be revisited again.

Will it be Derrick the handyman? Will it be a character that we have not met yet? What do you think?

Here are some videos with my thoughts on this subject:

The Best Tyler Perry Youtube Channel!

By Jeremy Carden

This is a special post dedicated to ALL of “The Haves and the Have Nots” fans that have followed my blog since I got started way back in Season 1 of the show! I really want to make sure that everyone knows about my Youtube channel that is now my outlet for getting my thoughts out there on everything HAHN related.

Screenshot_58

My channel is called “Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots Review.” On the channel, I do what I used to with my blog. I simply talk about the episodes, theories, character breakdowns and other things focused on the show. Not to mention, I also talk about If Loving You Is Wrong, The Payne’s, Tyler Perry movies/plays along with anything in the works within the walls of Tyler Perry Studios.

Last October, I quit my full-time job at the call center to become a full-time Youtuber. For some reason, the channel suddenly exploded with 1000s of new subscribers around last June. The money that I was making via advertisements was enough for me to pay my bills. With this new source of income, I was blessed to dedicate all of my time towards making videos.

Screenshot_21

Currently, the channel has about 450 videos! This is no joke at all because I have a lot to say about The Haves and the Have Nots.

If you have been following my blog since I got started, you know for a fact that the length of the blogs were pretty long. That is because I leave no stone unturned whenever I talk about a possible theory regarding the show.

Now, imagine that in video form meaning you do not have to read a blog that was about 10 miles long!

You also get the benefit of listening to my smooth voice while thinking about whether or not you agree with what I am saying.

e0d3b1cbeab079b5647a690bacaaa41e

Making videos has proven to be a much faster way of getting my thoughts out there. This means you are the ones who win because you get a video to listen as you are doing other things instead of being forced to read a blog while placing everything else on hold.

At this point, the channel is over 17,500+ subscribers! We are knocking on the door of 18,000 at this rate. I do not take any of this success for granted because around this time last year, I barely had 600 subscribers. It is nothing short of a blessing that the channel has grown nearly 30 times in size since then.

Veronica-and-Jeffrey-960x483

What is the point of this blog? Aside from making sure everyone knows where to go if they want my insight on all things HAHN, I need to make a request. Believe it or not, it has nothing to do with money.

The goal for my channel is to reach 100,000+ subscribers.

Let me write that again in case you missed it…

THE GOAL FOR MY CHANNEL IS TO REACH 100,000+ SUBSCRIBERS! 

Jim-and-Kathryn

I know that might seem crazy, but I believe we can make it happen. How? We are talking about a hit show on Tuesday nights. A show that was Tyler Perry’s first step into a direction outside of the Madea dress and wig. A show that was not a sitcom with a laugh track behind every line of dialogue. A show that was telling stories that had compelling characters bringing drama into our living rooms every Tuesday night.

This WordPress blog that I started after I was inspired to share my theories with like-minded HAHN addicts has been viewed more than 600,000+ times. Keep in mind, I spent over three years working on this blog without a single cent to show for it. However, a good friend pointed me in the direction of Youtube to widen my audience.

Screenshot_31

My channel has over 3,375,856 views! This is just a testament to how hard work, faith and determination cannot go without being rewarded. At first glance, it might seem like I am throwing out numbers just to boast or sound impressive. I want to stress that it NOT the reason behind this post.

If anything, this is a huge thank you to everyone that has been with me since Day 1 reading my theory blogs that were sometimes right on the money (Candace not being killed by the Malones) and other times off target (Amanda being Celine’s daughter) from what the actual show revealed to us later on down the line.

One of the main reasons I would like to hit over 100,000 subscribers is because channels that hit that milestone are given a special plaque.

maxresdefault (15)

I would love to receive one in the mail that reads: “Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots Review: Congratulations For Surpassing 100,000 Subscribers!

For those of you that have made it this far into the blog, you might be thinking about how you could help me make this dream a reality. If so, the answer is actually pretty simple. All it takes is for you to subscribe to my channel if you have not done so already. You can also share the videos that you like or think are good predictions about the plot. These little things will get my channel out there to those who do not already know about it.

The biggest video on the channel is about the Ice Queen herself! It was my first video to surpass 200,000 views. The video had to do with whether or not she survived the car accident at the end of last season.

Turns out she survived after all, but that cliffhanger had everyone guessing what was going to happen next! Sadly, the accident was resolved a bit too quickly for my taste, but that is besides the point. If this video could surpass 200,000 views in less than 3 months then I know it is possible for this channel to reach 100,000+ subscribers in the near future!

My promise to all of my followers is to provide quality videos. Aside from videos where only my thoughts are discussed, I also do live streams where some fans call me on Google Hangouts. It really gives the channel a radio-like vibe because callers talk with me about all things HAHN.

I guess those three years in the call center paid off because it makes transitioning over to this Youtube platform a lot easier. That just goes to show God does not put you into an arena without some hidden purpose behind it.

If Michael Jackson did not believe in his vision to create the biggest selling album of all time, Thriller would not have been released. The King of Pop believed in his vision and Thriller still stands at the top of the mountain even after his passing. Now, I know I need to believe in myself when it comes to this channel.

Jesus feed the multiple with two fish and five loaves of bread. He will make a way! I am a very independent person, but I have been humbled by this channel. It has shown me that my posts, videos, etc. are not just about me. They are my thoughts, but everyone who comments on them with their perspective keeps the conversion going. In most of my videos, I mention that the comment section is just an extension of my video. The video is the first domino knocking over the next one and there have been some very good conversations on my posts and videos.

Screenshot_202

That is why I am reaching out to everyone out there using every social media platform that I have! I urge you to subscribe, share my channel on your own social media outlets to ensure everyone knows about it.

Aside from hitting my goal of 100,000 subscribers, I want to increase this HAHN family so everyone has a chance to have their voice heard in an outlet with like-minded addicts of this show!

maxresdefault (4)

Sadly, the show will be ending in 2020 because that is when Tyler Perry’s contract with OWN will official come to an end. We will have to say goodbye to HAHN and If Loving You Is Wrong. However, that does not mean these shows will not continue on another network if the fans make enough noise. Trust me, I have no doubt in my mind that all of us together can help the show stay alive.

Remember that the fans were the reason that The Payne’s was brought back from a five year hiatus after that House of Payne cliffhanger.

That is why I do not take my channel lightly because it is a voice for the people who love Tyler Perry’s work. Something else that I would like to make clear is that I never post links or videos of the episodes themselves. That is a serious breach of trust as well as copyright infringement that could get my channel shutdown. Considering this is my one source of income, that would be a very bad idea…

Not to mention, that would be something that is against my own moral code. So, I wanted you to know that my channel is made of original content regarding my thoughts, ideas (as well as your own) about the HAHN along with Tyler Perry’s other shows and movies.

Spirit_Bomb

Keeping an eye on the subscriber number and seeing it increasing makes me feel like Goku collecting energy for his Spirit Bomb.

In case you missed the link above, I wanted to leave a link to my Youtube channel:

https://www.youtube.com/user/jbiblecarden

I also have other social media outlets that you should follow to make sure you are aware of my posts whenever I add something new to the channel:

Thank you so much for taking the time to read through all of this. For those of you that have been supporting me since the start of my HAHN journey, I cannot thank you enough. To those of you that are just joining this big HAHN family, I hope you enjoy the ride because you haven’t seen anything yet! 

Please get my channel out there, and I will continue to do more videos. As always, I’ll be doing what I can to keep interest in the show alive and well even during the brief hiatus periods between seasons! 

Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots: Is Candace Getting What She Deserves?

by Jeremy Carden

This season is finally heating up! Not just with Katheryn and Veronica burning down the Cryer Estate, but Candace finally learns that her son was killed.

Screenshot_89

In a very emotional scene, Candace is in tears after Charles delivers the bad news. This has the HAHN fanbase divided because while some feel sorry for Candy Cane, you can easily tell why other fans are not feeling too sympathetic for Candace.

Love her or hate her, you have to admit that it is sad for any mother to lose a child. However, can you honestly call Candace Young a mother to a child that she neglected for the most part even after he was rescued from Quitta’s grip by his Uncle Benny?

In this video, I go into great detail about my thoughts on this subject:

I will be going into my thoughts about Candace as a person, mother, sister and daughter. I hope that you will leave your thoughts on this subject below because this is truly something worth discussing!

Screenshot_108

There is so much to cover before next Tuesday, and I want to get your input on Candace. Personally, I found it disgusting that she blames her mother for what happened. She even says that Hanna should be dead instead of her son.

It is a sad thing to witness considering that Hanna has done so much for Candace that she does not even know about! Remember when she went to Warlock to see if he would leave Candace alone?

Screenshot_50

There are a lot of people that we can point our finger at to blame for Quincy Jr.’s death. However, all roads lead back to Candace and Jim’s affair that started this entire series.

Who do you think is at fault for Quincy’s death? Is Candace right to be mad at Hanna? Do you think she even loved her son?

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.

wpid-haves-and-have-nots-1

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

I also have a Facebook page dedicated to my blog posts and HAHN memes as well! Also follow my blog so you can enjoy my new articles when they are posted. 

 

 

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.

Screenshotiopipo

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.

Screenshot_25

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.

130903mag-crystal-fox1

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.”

katandhannabond_zps0141d050

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.

ep115-own-hhn-10-365x240

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!

 

io;iop

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.

Screenshot_4

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.

2na02a1

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.

4so395

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.

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.

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.

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…

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?

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

Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots Theory: Is Hanna Wrong for Wanting Custody of Her Grandson?

By Jeremy Carden

promo-own-hhn-cast-1-949x534

Another hot topic that has HAHN fans split down the middle involves the fate of Quincy Jr.

11880626_10204917851572663_1569380142509859390_n

In next week’s episode, Candace returns from New York to be with her son (who she thought was dead until a few episodes ago). In the middle of their emotional reunion, Candace learns that Hanna has requested custody of Quincy Jr.

Just when you thought that things within the Young family have calmed down for the moment; a storm is beginning to brew once again!

Should he stay with his mother, or is he better off with his grandmother?

My opinion on the above question is kind of split down the middle, and I do not say that as an escape from actually answering the question at all.

11863266_10204920113469209_613813163746399775_n

I think that Quincy Jr. would be better off with Hanna, but he would be safer with Candace…maybe.

Hear me out on this one! There is no doubt in my mind that Hanna loves her grandson with all of her heart, and she has made this clear on multiple occasions throughout the series. She practically raised him since he was an infant, but Candace took him away without Hanna seeing her grandson again until a couple of episodes ago!

hannah-qunicy-hahn

In a contest of who cares more about Quincy Jr., I think that the clear winner is Hanna.

Why?

It can be summed up by 2 events in the past few episodes involving Candace after she learned that her son was alive.

Hanna was 350% correct when she called out Candace for not using her time, resources, connections and energy towards finding her son!

Screenshot_10

Instead of looking for Quincy Jr. after she learned from Hanna that he was alive, she was too busy “paying her condolences” to Jim. We all know how that turned out; Katheryn popped her upside the head with a wine bottle, and she deserved it!

Screenshot_25

She was too focused on rubbing her newly “earned” wealth in Jim’s face, and that resulted in her downfall. Hanna told her not to go to Amanda’s funeral, and she also told her not to go to the Cryer Mansion.

Screenshot_17

For the viewers who are quick to call out Hanna for fighting for custody over Quincy Jr. from her daughter, just remember that instead of looking for her son; Candace traveled from Georgia to New York for a trip! That should show you right there where her “priorities” are!

Even though I think that Hanna loves her grandson more than Candace does, I think that in terms of security; Quincy Jr. might be better off with Candace.

What do I mean by that?

In terms of being in a financially stable home, Candace has that over Hanna. However, she seems to be blowing through her money, and it is still up in the air about whether or not Oscar can be trusted! Before you know it, she will soon be separated from her millions.

11063635_10204611322989640_3043782351372301377_n

Moving onto actual safety, I think Candace’s new homes would be better for her son. When Quincy recovers from the beating he received from Benny, he will be coming back for his son and revenge. He knows where Hanna lives, but he would not think to look in the neighborhood that Candace has bought those 2 homes in. It might be safer for her son to be in a location that his father has no idea to look in.

Screenshot_19

Despite not having a lot of money or a brand new home, I feel that Hanna would be able to provide something that Candace could not; a genuine and loving environment. Candace might have money and a nicer home, but could she really be as loving and kind as Hanna?

I don’t think so, and I say that without downplaying her affections towards her son. However, that boy is Hanna’s heart, and I think we can all agree on that. Hanna has never had a good relationship with her daughter, and now her own son is beginning to leave her side. She needs to have someone in her life to love!

Screenshot_1

Most fans would be quick to think about Byron or Michael, but it is debatable as to whether or not they will be showing up again.

At the heart of it, I think that Hanna fighting for custody of Quincy Jr. is because she is concerned about his well being. Remember that he was safe when he was with his grandmother, but he was put in harm’s way after Candace took him back. She was nearly beaten to death by Quincy, and he told her that he killed their child!

Not to mention he was being abused by his aunt while in her apartment (Quincy might have beaten him too, but I doubt that because he was in jail for the past 3 years), and he was most likely going to die from infection from his wounds if Benny had not saved him when he did.

ep101-own-hhn-11-600x411

With that being said, Hanna has every right to fight for custody of her grandbaby. I think this is going to cause a larger gap between Candace and Hanna than there was before. Not to mention, I wonder which side Benny will take in this!

You could argue that Hanna’s only reason for attempting to claim custody was to keep Quincy Jr. from being taken away by social services. However, we might have to wait until Tuesday night to find out Hanna’s reasoning behind it.

In the end, I think if it is taken to court; Candace MIGHT win because of her money, law skills and it is unclear if Oscar will play a role in this. She might win, but in the future not have the resources to take care of her son because of karma catching up with her. That will be when Hanna finally gets him, but again it is all up to speculation at this point.

11209404_10204612195971464_6293324789841627225_n

What do you think about Hanna rising up to take care of her grandchild? Does she have the right do blindside Candace like that, or is she doing the right thing for Quincy Jr. Who do you think Quincy Jr. should be with?
