James Pleads to Make Things Right

Season 3 Episode 305
Aired on 09/19/2018 | CC tv-pg
Taking stock of his troubled family, the bishop pulls Lady Mae aside in the hospital corridor and expresses his desire to make things right between them—especially so they can be better parents. "These kids need their parents," James tells her. "I mean, Grace, Charity, Jacob with this Zora mess. They all need us."

"What are you proposing, James?" Lady Mae responds.

"Please, let's put this behind us," he says earnestly.

"I wish I could, but I don't see how," she tells him, the sorrow in her eyes betraying her quiet, measured tone. "I've reached a point in my heart where going back would be an act of disrespect to God himself."

The bishop can't seem to find any words as Lady Mae tells him that it's time to tell the children and the church about their plans to divorce—and that it's best for them to move on. "James, you're not wrong. These children do need their mother and their father," she says. "But I don't think they'll ever have their parents again."
