Hanna remains suspicious of the circumstances surrounding Benny's sudden wealth and expensive new home. She finds it hard to believe that Benny could come into such a great sum of money so quickly purely as a result of his own hard work. Hanna suspects that there's something much more insidious behind the money: Veronica.

She makes her feelings clear about dirty money. "That dream's going to turn into a nightmare real quick," she tells her son.

Benny admits to his mother that Veronica is still contacting him and that—try as he might—he can't resist it when she throws herself at him. Although she's happy for her son's success, Hanna can't shake the feeling that Benny's money is tainted, and, ultimately, refuses to move into the house with him.
