In the Season 2 midseason finale, Jacob makes Triumph pastor Basie Skanks an offer to clear his debt and gain full control of Triumph II; and Mac receives bad news from Skip Leonard that puts him in an explosive collision course with Grace.
When Basie hears about the injunction filed to stop construction of Triumph Two, he stages a sit-in at Calvary in an attempt to force Bishop's hand. In other events, Grace's plan to put Mac away hits a snag.
Jacob meets with Pastor Skanks to talk about his new role at Triumph II, Calvary's new rival church; the Bishop takes care of some unfinished business with his father-in-law and runs into Mac; Kerissa prepares her family to leave the Greenleaf home and tours her and Jacob's new residence; and Grace meets with a journalist who's been closely following the Greenleaf family.
In the Season 2 premiere, the Greenleaf family struggles in the aftermath of Mac's release; Lady Mae makes a last-ditch attempt to save the Bishop; and Basie's announcement opens a rift between the Bishop and Jacob.
