I forgot that Wyatt had been molested by a priest as a kid, until it came up again in an argument he was having with Jeffery. That was another bit of backstory that had been casually tossed out a while ago.

Jeffery finally stood up to Wyatt. This empowered Jeffery is a breath of fresh air and a relief, but I don't have confidence that it's going to last.

Well, it's a good thing that Benny has that house that Candace bought him and that he moved all his mother's clothes into it already, what with Quincy driving his car through Hanna's house and blowing it up.

I really need David to go ahead with this plan to run for governor himself--otherwise, what reason will Landon have for staying in Savannah?

Jeffery found his car!!! I'm not sure why this is exciting to me, as I'm not sure how the car really matters much anymore, but I'm finding it very exciting.

Score one for Maggie who manages to break Veronica down by convincing her nothing happened between Maggie and David.

Uh oh! Why is Candace's account a 0 balance all of a sudden?! Please don't tell me sweet, nice Oscar is behind this?

Actually I think it was at summer camp. But no matter--I wasn't sure it was brought up prior to his prison rape, so I wasn't about to spoil it. It will certainly be brought up more and more, trying to say that event caused him to become a drug addict, etc. If it weren't for these little throwaway lines that become important later on, I'd swear TP doesn't really plot this stuff out very far in advance. But I guess he must, because once in a while he resolves a sticky plot point in a very clever way that manages to surprise even a jaded, long-time soap fan like myself.

That's the same feeling that ancient character Sisyphus must have felt when he rolled the rock to the top of the hill---right before it rolled back down again. That brief moment when you feel progress has been made....but as usual, that saucy minx Veronica manages to get one over on everyone again. Each time Jeffery manages to outwit his mother a bit (or briefly has one over on her) he gets one more bit of self-confidence (which is good) but he also inches a bit closer to using tactics similar to Veronica and/or Candace (which is usually bad). It's amazing how little Jeffery relies on his dad, especially since David has offered unwavering support during Jeffery's coming-out.

You really are zipping right through this series!

I could swear Jeffery said priest, but then when you mentioned summer camp I remember that from when the information first came out around the time of Amanda's suicide.

I've been trying to figure out how far ahead things are mapped out. I haven't really come across anything that screams "course correction" or that it was a last minute plot point.

Yes! This show knows how to string a guy along.

I'm watching the season finale right now.

Candace: "There was over 4 million dollars in that account."
Oscar: "From escorting? Damn, you must be tired."

I'm impressed with the actor who plays Oscar. His shift from nice guy to jerk has been well acted.

Holy cow!! Candace attacks Oscar with a knife over her lost money. They struggle. Quincy comes in and pulls Oscar off of Candace. Oscar runs away away and Quincy starts beating on Candace!

The plot twists are coming fast and furious now as Wyatt and Jeffery spy Veronica and Benny having sex. Also, Hanna learns she has been given custody of Q. Too bad she doesn't have a home to take him to.

Is Jennifer really going to give Wyatt immunity? She'd rather prosecute the people involved in the cover up rather than the actual killer?
