Spoilers for Season 7 Episode 19: 'Father's Day'

An episode titled 'Father's Day' could have a slew of connotations in the universe of Tyler Perry's 'The Haves and the Have Nots'. Seven years and counting and some things just don't change. From Veronica shooting "holes in her pool" to buying her own safety and protection, and more importantly, the care she needs — this episode of HAHN has all of that saucy, hot spiciness that leaves one tingling for more.

In one single episode we learn of thirsty Alissa's needy approach towards David, and what is supposed to become of Wyatt Cryer and his exceptionally dumb brain. And while we're less worried for Hanna going forward, once again the question circles back to whether Wyatt is dead or alive after the way this episode ends. 

The writers pack too many stories in this episode of HAHN. There's Veronica making a move to stay ahead of her enemies by hiring Katheryn Cryer's ex-gigolo slash mercenary to keep them at bay and keep her company in bed. And then there's the whole plot twist over who Colby really is. Sassing Jeffrey's mother to the point of getting shot inches away at a swimming pool is no joke, but as Colby says the only drug he's high on is not living his life in fear.

So far so good, but he also ends up taking mysterious calls from someone and answering to the name Sam. The mystery is solved later when Justin, jilted by Jeffrey's lack of interest, open the door to — you guessed it, Colby/Sam! The two of them bicker over how this Sam persona is too femme for Justin. So happy as we are that he kicked the homophobic Tanner's dumb a**, one can't help but worry what this means for either Jeffrey or Madison or their future as together.

And that brings us to the only person who could benefit from Jeffrey not finding love or being happy with a man — his other, Veronica. The Ice Queen, fresh with her new gigolo slash caretaker, tries to lodge an official investigation into Laura and Samuel, even though she had shot at the latter aka her new boy toy in her pool.

The bullet had barely avoided Samuel's ear but he is gullible, the type that unironically says things like "You're such a nice lady," to Veronica Harrington of all people. Veronica tries to pay him for his labor — this time strictly around the house — but he refuses on accounts of his wife's suspicion.

Smart and fair — something that cannot be said about David. While Hanna is being full on hit on by Al, whom she is unintentionally driving crazy running chores together for their employers, David gets trapped by Alia again! How or why are both good questions, but in simpler terms Alissa emotionally blackmails David into offering her a home.

She was 9 when he had put her and her sister's father away for raping them. Thus had started the two kids' cycles as the Foster Care system, which led to her sister's fatal OD and her work in prostitution.

So Alissa wants him to fix what he had ruined for her all those years ago, and when she's on her knees, at the brink of offering pleasure, David falls weak. He doesn't remember Hanna or pursuing her because the job at hand is much more satisfying. There's no forgetting how upset Veronica was over him pining for Hanna, so knowing he fell for someone as insignificant to Veronica as Alissa, the Ice Queen will pull up her evil game of toying with preys a notch.

Speaking of hands — Wyatt gets cornered and his wrists slit far more dangerous than he himself could have. Upon learning Katheryn isn't paying two cents for his protection and on Mama Rose's orders, Vinny cuts Wyatt's wrists and leaves him to die at some shady part downtown, while the grown man complains and cries "That's too much blood."

Nobody care, just like the show's laws on life and death, and Wyatt's innate ability to survive every single time. It's getting a little repetitive now, and the character isn't serving anybody but his own stupidity. Maybe it's time to nail that coffin for good. 'The Haves and the Have Nots' Season 7 airs on Tuesdays at 8 pm on OWN.
