Jeffery's Baby

Season 2 Episode 214
Aired on 07/07/2015 | CC tv-14
Jeffery is paying his respects at Amanda's funeral when his mother walks in with the last person he wants to see: Melissa. She tells Jeffery that Veronica is telling the truth—she really is pregnant, and the baby is his.

"Why would you do this to me?" Jeffery says.

Tearing up, Melissa explains that her father is dying of cancer. To pay for his medical treatments and hospital bills, her family borrowed half a million dollars from Jeffery's mother. Melissa's family now risks losing everything unless they do exactly what Veronica says, and what she wants is for Melissa and Jeffery to have a baby together and get married.

"She's going to make you be whatever she wants you to be," Melissa tells him.
