Episode 220 Recap: "A Home for Q"
The guards are shocked to find that Wyatt has a new unauthorized cellmate—one with a history of violence on the inside—and they demand to know who placed him in Wyatt's cell. The inmate refuses to confess anything, and he's quickly removed from the cell. Knowing they'll soon have to face the wrath of Wyatt's high-profile father, the guards fall into a panic.
Carlos tries to get Celine to understand that Jim doesn't care about them, but she refuses to accept it.
"I love you," Carlos says, "but that man you keep protecting—he doesn't."
Jim attempts to convince the DA that Wyatt, who is known to have an addiction problem, gave a false confession under the influence of drugs. Despite the DA's attempt to fish for more information from them to strengthen her case, the two influential couples continue to stonewall her and maintain that it's all a misunderstanding. However, District Attorney Sallison is unconvinced by their posturing and firmly believes they're all guilty.
"I know he is telling the truth, and I'm coming after all of you," she says.

"That boy will learn," Veronica declares ominously.
"What the hell have you done now?" David says.
Veronica flashes David a sinister smirk before walking away. An unnerved David rushes into the mansion to warn Jim that Wyatt may be in danger. Jim was planning on having his son released from prison in the morning before his press conference, but David urges Jim to remove Wyatt immediately.
Jim is concerned by David's sense of urgency and demands to know what he's hiding from him.
"Jim, I've just got a feeling he is not as safe as you think he is," David says.
Having already failed to reach his contact at the prison, Jim rushes out the door to retrieve his son.

"No. I'm his mother, and this is my son," says an enraged Candace.
Hanna pleads with Candace to consider what's best for the child. She believes that Quincy Jr. needs stability that Candace wouldn't be able to provide.
"I want to give that baby a chance at life," Hanna says. "He's been through enough."
While they await the decision from children's services, Candace exercises her current parental rights and demands that Hanna stay away from her son.
"If I have to wait all day and all night, that baby's coming home with me. You'll see," Hanna says. And with that, she storms out of the hospital room.

"It won't be for much longer," Veronica says.
