The news that General Taylor will be retiring with full honors and 21 guns salute troubles, Archie. The fact doesn’t fit him since he was the reason they lost a brother.

Cheryl and Kevin plan to take away the shine from their mother. They perform several miracles that bring some positive energies to them. Meanwhile, Archie comes clean about what happened at the war and was ready to fight for it. He confronts General Taylor despite the consequences and asks the martyred’s families for support.

Veronica takes the first shot at her father at the auction and the next would be at Chad’s party.
