On The Haves and the Have Nots, Candace accompanies Amanda to the Cryer mansion, where Amanda demands her inheritance from her grandfather. Katheryn refuses to give her the money. Candace drops a bomb on Jim and Katheryn that limits their options for withholding the money. Katheryn demands that Jim “shut down” Candace before she causes more trouble for the Cryer family.
This Tyler Perry drama, one of the first scripted programs ever on OWN, chronicles the story of Candace Young–a beautiful and dangerously manipulative seductress seeking the fast track to wealth and comfort. After sleeping with and blackmailing the married Judge Jim Cryer, Candace successfully forces her way into the lives of his affluent family and upends its tense and tenuous status quo. Candace’s mother, the religious and morally steadfast Hanna Young, gets herself hired as a Cryer maid in order to keep an eye on her wayward daughter. But the Youngs aren’t the only ones with secrets; several members of the Cryer family have dark or shameful deeds to hide, and Candace’s presence inadvertently exposes them over time. Additionally impacted by the Cryers’ drama is the Harrington family, a mother, daughter and son closely entwined in the Cryers’ day-to-day struggles.
