SEASON 2, EPISODE 120 | AIRED ON 01/28/14
Jeffery begins to realize that Wyatt may be responsible for killing Lizzie, the little girl whose death has dominated the local news coverage, as well as for critically injuring Candace's brother, Benny. Wyatt begs Jeffery not to expose his secret, and Jeffery promises not to.
At the courthouse, Candace tries to secure Amanda's inheritance, but her threats against Jim fall on deaf ears. Will she go to the press with her story?
Later, Maggie tells Jim to wait to announce his candidacy for governor, and urges him and David to attend Lizzie's funeral to help subdue public outrage over the girl's death. Jim agrees to go while keeping his secret that Lizzie was killed by his own son, Wyatt.
Finally, Jeffery tells Candace that Benny—whom she has been anxiously trying to reach but to no avail—was hit by the same driver that killed Lizzie, and she rushes to the county hospital to find her brother.
