All Benny wanted was to have a talk with his sister, Candace, but when he forces his way into her house, he finds himself at the scene of a murder. Benny starts to panic, asking Candace what happened. Candace nervously recounts the events that led to her and Jeffery stabbing Quincy to death in self-defense.

"This isn't going to look like self-defense," Benny says.

Candace had been struggling to find a way to get rid of Quincy's body when Benny showed up, but it was too heavy for her to move on her own. Out of a protective instinct for his little sister, Benny makes the decision to get rid of the body for her. "I got this," he tells her.

There's one other problem, though: Where has Jeffery gone? "Did he go to the police?" Benny asks.

Candace assures him that Jeffery wouldn't do that, but Benny sends her on a mission to find him—to be sure.

Back at the jailhouse, tensions are running higher than ever after Jeffery is removed from his cell. The guard refuses to tell the Cryers and the Harringtons where he is taking Jeffery, but they all suspect that, as with Wyatt, Jennifer is offering him immunity in exchange for his testimony.

Veronica can't accept that her son would betray her, but Jim asserts otherwise and further antagonizes her. Fed up with his insults, David lunges at Jim, and Jim fights back.

When District Attorney Jennifer Sallison arrives, the guards quickly diffuse the physical altercation. The DA releases David but none of the others, and Jim demands to know whether David made a deal with her. David denies this and promises to get them out, but first he wants to take care of his son.

"David, Jeffery can wait. Can you get me out of here, please?" Veronica implores her husband.

"No, Jeffery cannot wait. As long as you're in here, you'll be safe," David says. "I am not getting you out."

While Veronica and the Cryers are still behind bars, waiting to be charged with the cover-up of Wyatt's fatal hit-and-run, David is allowed to walk free. David asks Jennifer why she let him out while the others remain locked up.

"For the record, I didn't get you out," she says. It was Maggie Day who pulled the strings that got David released.

Jennifer, still harboring romantic feelings for David, jealously pries into David's history with the attractive blonde who went to such great lengths to free him. David denies any illicit relations with Maggie.

Now that he's out, all David wants to do is see his son, Jeffery, whom the DA will surely press for testimony against his parents and the Cryers. David demands that Jennifer allow him to speak with his son.

"David, for his own protection, he has asked not to see you or your wife. I'm sorry."

Jennifer tells Jeffery that Wyatt confessed and agreed to testify against his parents in exchange for immunity for himself and Jeffery. She explains that she won't charge Jeffery with obstruction of justice if he agrees to testify against his parents as well as the Cryers. Jeffery won't betray his father, but after everything his mother has done to him, he's willing to take her down.

"So if I can arrange to have the trial separate, would you testify against her?" Jennifer says.

At the Cryer mansion, Jeffery confronts Wyatt about the immunity deal and everything that has transpired concerning their parents. Jeffery thinks Wyatt is in over his head, knowing far too well what his mother is capable of. However, now that Wyatt has access to his inheritance, he believes he'll get away scot-free and rid himself of his family for good.

Jeffery is still rattled by Quincy's death and is on the verge of confessing to Wyatt when Candace arrives. She quickly learns that Jeffery was at the police station, and prods him about what he might have told the authorities. Wyatt reveals the details of the hit-and-run incident and explains that Jeffery was at the station because of his involvement.

"I can't believe you," Candace says.

"You know what I can't believe? Is how screwed up my life has been ever since I met you," Jeffery says. "None of this would have happened if it wasn't for you."

Jeffery tells Candace that he doesn't want anything to do with her ever again, but before she leaves, Candace ensures that Jeffery won't go to the police by reminding him that he was actively involved in Quincy's death.
