The news of Grace Greenleaf's return to Memphis causes tension.
Grace's decision to back to Memphis is motivated by vengeance for her sister's death.
Jacob and Kerissa end realizing what their marriage has become.
The mayor calls in a favor, which leaves the Bishop in a bind that could split the church; Grace is blackmailed about Faith's past; Jacob and Kerissa attend couple counseling; and Charity has difficulty keeping a secret.
Grace and the Bishop find themselves in opposition; Lady Mae tries to mend fences while Kerissa is pushed to her limit; Kevin further explores his sexuality.
The Bishop appoints Grace to preach on Sunday in his absence; Jacob tries to arrange a TV deal for the church; and Kevin's flippant advice to Charity on how to hire a new music director backfires.
Mac is slated to be named "Memphis Man of the Year", but first must advise Charity about the music director; help Jacob with his TV pitch to the Bishop; and deal with paranoia about Grace's effort to bring him to justice. Also on his plate: the IRS audit; and the unwanted appearance of his and Lady Mae's father.
Grace reaches out to Officer Nelson while also working with Noah in an effort to find evidence against Mac; Lady Mae is suspicious of Grace and Noah; Jacob presents his TV plan to the Bishop; Lady Mae pushes the Bishop to reveal a secret; and the Bishop deals with a woman who is out to destroy Calvary.
A debate over security at Calvary erupts following the church shooting; Mac's plans to leave the country life behind set off a chain of potential catastrophes.
Grace thwarts Mac's attempt to blackmail the Bishop; and deals with Sophia's father, Ray, who has doubts about Grace's parenting. In other events, Charity, who's fed up with being disrespected, finally speaks up.
The church is losing money and members; Ray seeks custody of Sophia; Jacob's offers to help Calvary are declined; and Kevin gets closer to Adrian.
Grace, Ray and Sophia go to court; Basie, the Bishop and Jacob discuss an opportunity at Triumph; Deacon Sykes wants to hold a "women's day" at a smaller venue; Adrian gets the wrong idea about his lunch with Kevin; Mavis has problems with her club; and Kevin shares his feelings with Charity.
Deacon Sykes has doubts about Lady Mae preaching at the "women's day" event; Basie wants Jacob to run Triumph's new community center; and Lady Mae confronts Mavis.
