'The Haves and the Have Nots' Season 7 Episode 19 Preview: Will Veronica teach David and Jeffrey a lesson?
Veronica Harrington (Angela Robinson) is pretty much the force that ties Tyler Perry's 'The Haves and the Have Nots' together. Almost seven seasons in and she is still just as diabolic, thus making the fact that she has acquired some harsh enemies over the years no secret or surprise. Off late though, Veronica's behavior has been concerning. From daydreaming about David (Peter Parros), and obsessing over his feelings for Hanna Young (Crystal Fox) to sleeping with whatever Tom, Dick and Harry, half-her-age dimwit she can find, Veronica doesn't seem herself. Last week's flashbacks of her married life with David led fans to worry if she is going to die, but if the synopsis for the upcoming episode is proof, Veronica is only getting started on her enemies and how.
If there's one thing Veronica should be widely deplored for, its her homophobia. The way she tried to get her son sexually assaulted or apply indirect conversion therapies on him is simply beyond redemption. So when her son Jeffrey Harrington (Gavin Houston) and his friends were skinny dipping in her pool and she pulled a gun at them, it doesn't really come as a shock. Neither does the fact that David is pretty much done with her batshit insanity for good and is now beyond the point of exchanging pleasantries with her.
That Veronica has enemies is no secret, with her recent stunts against her own family stealing the show for how horrible she can really be. But the official synopsis for the 'Father's Day' titled Episode 19 of Season 7 states: "Veronica makes moves to stay ahead of her enemies." What moves you ask? Well, for starters, she can easily destroy any romantic prospects Jeremy has on the horizon because she has done it before and won't hesitate to ruin her gay son's life again.
As for her ex-husband whom she can't stop dreaming about, Veronica's flashbacks are a clear indication of her wanting to reconcile and resume where they left off. But David has seen too much and been through too much. The constant violent attacks on David because she doubted his fidelity escalated to much more over the years. When she got abusive towards their gay son and actively planned on ruining his life, David put his foot down and it looks like he is not going back. David has been charmed by the Cryer's housekeeper Hanna for too long, and it's slowly starting to creep into Veronica's dreams. For all we know, she will teach her ex-husband a lesson on moving on by taking his object of affection out of the equation.
That Hanna's son Benjamin (Tyler Lepley) was also Veronica's favorite boy-toy doesn't help things. Benny keeps going back to Veronica for information on his mother's rapist. Veronica keeps dangling little pieces of relevant info like bait, which makes us think she has bigger plans for this man. If the idea of taking Hanna out gets too personal, Veronica could also do something very damaging to Benny in his quest for vengeance. That would teach both Hanna and David a lesson on not to cross the Ice Queen.
'The Haves and the Have Nots' Season 7 airs on Wednesdays at 8 pm only on OWN.
