Description:

From prolific, writer, director, producer Tyler Perry, The Haves and the Have Nots is a new television drama that follows the complicated dynamic between the rich and powerful Cryer family and the hired help who work in their opulent mansion set in Savannah, Georgia.

From the outside, the Cryers are the enviable face of success and wealth, but behind the veil the family’s dysfunction threatens to destroy their world of privilege. Cryer family patriarch Jim Cryer (John Schneider) is a powerful judge whose double-life, including tawdry affairs with high-priced escorts, puts his family and political ambitions at risk. His wife, Katheryn Cryer (Renée Lawless), is the ultimate matriarch portraying a loving and dutiful wife, but she is willing to do anything to protect her family’s status. Their son Wyatt (Aaron O’Connell) is a troubled angry jock who cares little for his own image and finds himself in and out of rehab. His sister Amanda (Jacyln Betham), a struggling law student, tries harder to live up to her parents’ expectations, but unknowingly has befriended a scurrilous young woman, Candace Young, with the power to ruin the entire family.

Hanna Young (Crystal Fox) is the Cryer’s maid and the matriarch of her family. Despite having no money, she has found other types of wealth through religion and virtue. She prides herself on her dutiful son Benny (Tyler Lepley), the glue who helps keep the family together. Hanna does have one dark secret, however, her estranged daughter Candace (Tika Sumpter)—a manipulative opportunist who will stop at nothing to get what she wants.

Other characters in the series include the Cryer’s chef Celine (Eva Tamargo), their wealthy friends Veronica (Angela Robinson) and David Harrington (Peter Parros), and son Wyatt’s rehabilitation counselor, Jeffery Harrington (Gavin Houston).

    I can only assume that sooner or later Veronica will get "slapped into next week". It's hard to believe that there is not one character on the show that will stand up to her. Even if Jeffrey doesn't have the will power to accept his homosexuality, allowing his mother to completely dominate him is very sad to watch.

      It is painful to watch Spineless Jeffrey. He is an intelligent young man and should have broke by now. The way Veronica bullies him is unbearable! It would be more interesting to have Jeffrey go toe to toe with her, not bow every time. David must get more into saving Jeffrey from his mother.

    So, like I posted last week, the hitman used BLANKS! Jim wanted to scare Candace into leaving him alone, and he had her sign those papers just to be on the safe side! I'm really tired of Amanda; she needs to be committed! SHE'S gonna kill somebody, maybe Quincy! He's crazy to get involved w/her! Candace's baby is dead!

    Veronica may be a poor excuse for a mother, but I do love how, although she is clearly educated and business-savvy, she can 'go street' on you if necessary! You can take the girl out of the ghetto, but you can't (always) take the ghetto out of the girl! Maggie, look out! You're about to be SERVED! Now as for Jeffrey, this is the perfect time to tell 'Ronica that he's going to live his life and for her to get over it! Actually, I want LANDON to speak up, b/c he's clearly sick of how Veronica treats her son (and him)! Can't wait for tonight! Will be posting afterward for sure! :)

      I like Veronica, her son Jeffrey is not g** and he's mad because she knows it. Candice needed money and the child has been sold. Everyone look out because Candice is next Mayor.

    Greetings! I'm waiting for another roller coaster ride tonight, Mr. Perry :-) Will tonight's episode hold a candle to last Tuesday's episode? Is there still a story line for Professor Canon, who raped Amanda and Amanda stabbed him at the finale of last season? If not, then there should be closure with this character. Kudos to you, Mr. Perry for a job well done!!! Peace...MJ

    There are only 3 episodes left this season. Are we going to find out what happened to the professor? The last time I saw him was last season. At that time he was in a park running from Amanda with a knife in his back. Is he still running? Just kidding, but seriously, where is he? Surely he can 't still be running. He must be exhausted by now. Tyler, please consider bringing him back before the season ends. We need some kind of closure with the professor. He has just vanished. Is he living, is he missing? Where is he? LOL!!!!

      Hi! I asked that question a couple of weeks ago. I agree with you about Profession Canon. He did rape Amanda. Plus she stabbed him at the end of last season. I would like to know if he survived his injuries or did he succumbed to his injuries. Peace...MJ

    Mr. Perry, you scored a touch down and hit a home run with this latest episode of THATHN! BRAVO,, BRAVO,BRAVO!!! In my opinion, Tuesday's episode is an EMMY WINNER!!! From the moment it came on, until it went off, I wanted more, more and MORE!!! You gave me just what I wanted; excitement, intrigue with a lot of twists and turns. I felt like I was on a roller coastal ride. I'm glad Candace is alive and Benny recovered so they can go after Jim Cryer. Because Jeffrey and Melissa didn't use protection when they slept together, I predict one or two things will happen, she will become pregnant,more Jeffrey will come up HIV Virus. Keeping Amanda at home, instead of a mental instution, could be a HUGE mistake. Amanda has a gun and she won't hesitate to use it on her family. I wonder how Ronica will react when she sees her son coming out of Landon's hotel room and then finding Maggie in her husband's hotel? What is Hanna going to do now that she knows that Byron is an imposter? Sorry for the long comments, soI will end it now, lol, but I will be back with more questions and comments. Great job, Mr. Perry! Peace...MJ
