Episode 225 Recap: "When the Chickens Come Home"
Hanna and Benny demand to know where Candace got the money to buy the tow yard and their house. She refuses to tell them and claims that she only did all this for the family. They finally get Candace to admit that she doesn't have the job at the law firm and that, despite this, she somehow acquired $7 million. Candace steadfastly refuses to tell them how she came into so much money so quickly, but she shows them the deeds to the houses and tow yard to prove that she paid for them and legitimately owns them.
When she pulls up her bank account information online to prove to them that she still has more than $4 million, she discovers that all the money is gone. After Hanna and Benny leave, it dawns on her that Oscar must be behind it. When he loaned her $500,000 to prove her financial solvency to the social worker, he gained access to her account information.
Having overheard the fight with her family, Jeffery asks Candace whether everything is okay. Candace tells him that Oscar took her money, but she won't tell him how she came into so much money in the first place. Jeffery suspects that whoever gave her the money might have arranged to get the money back. Candace suspects Jim and thinks that Oscar has been working for him the whole time.
"He marked me from day one," Candace says.
Panic sets in as Candace realizes that she won't be able to pay her bills. When Oscar calls her, she accuses him of taking her money and demands that he put it back. He won't admit to any involvement, but he agrees to meet with her—and insists that she return the money he loaned her.
