Whatever Veronica Harrington wants she gets, usually. Some seven years and 20 episodes later, Veronica is having a full-circle moment with her desires going back to the one person who can't help despise her anymore. It's pretty obvious what Veronica wants as Season 7 of 'The Haves and the Have Nots' comes to wrap with Episode 20. The real question is how far is Veronica willing to go for it?

According to the official synopsis of the upcoming episode titled 'The Reaping': "Veronica does whatever it takes to get what she wants." So far we have seen her toying with young men as a means of keeping herself distracted while her ex-husband, David, pines for Hanna Young. Veronica has also lashed out at her gay son, once again, and pulled a gun on him and his friends who were purposely trying to annoy her.

And then, of course, there's the curious case of Benjamin Young — Hanna's son and one of Veronica's favorite boytoys, whom she's keeping on the hook by giving him only bits and pieces of info that he desperately seeks, as bait. 

Selfish and self-serving as always, Veronica does not care who she displeases or worse, absolutely destroys, in her quest for whatever she wants. So she recently took up Katelyn Cryer's former bodyguard as her own security detail to take care of her safety, among other things of course. Clearly, Veronica is sensing more danger on the way — or those epiphanic flashbacks wouldn't have ensued two episodes ago.

She wants David, she wants their happiness as a couple together back, probably even wants their son Jeffrey to be a part of their lives again. But she can't deal with Jeffrey's sexuality and David can't digest the heinous levels she has gone to with her homophobia — so neither of Veronica's wishes is being granted. 

In the wake of this brutal disaster she has consciously crafted for herself, several fans are worried that Veronica might take her own life. With the flashbacks and her looking back with fond reminiscence, it's a classic cue for a character's story arc coming to an end. But what would the Tyler Perry soap opera even be with Veronica? Our best bet here is, Veronica isn't dying, but she is definitely going for the kill.

That's pretty much the only thing left in her arc to be accomplished, if hired mercenaries aren't counted as killing. 'The Haves and the Have Nots' Season 7 airs on Tuesdays at 8 pm on OWN.
