Cheryl and her husband, Danny, claim that their 17-year-old daughter, Becky, was addicted to talking to men online in video game chat rooms and that's where she met and fell in love with a 21-year-old man whom she has never met in person. They say that even though they took away her cell phone, webcam and computer, Becky still has found ways to contact him. Becky’s grandma, Loretta, says that she blames Cheryl and Danny’s bad parenting for Becky’s misbehaving and acting out. Becky says she’s in love and plans to move 3,000 miles away when she turns 18 in a month. She says her parents need to treat her like an adult and let her pursue her own relationship.

Betty, Kevin and Philip are involved in a love triangle -- however, Betty has been married to Philip for 29 years. Betty claims Philip allowed her to step outside the marriage because he wanted an open marriage, but Philip claims it was her idea. Betty says when she did explore meeting other men, she met and fell in love with Kevin. Philip says he does not want to let the marriage go, but Betty says she has been very unhappy because she claims Philip has been physically and verbally abusive for years. Philip admits he has hurt Betty but claims it was because her behavior made him angry. Betty and Philip’s two daughters, Victoria and Liz, say their parents are hypocrites for raising them to follow the church and act like decent people, and yet, are now doing the complete opposite by having extramarital affairs. Dr. Phil advises how this family can untangle the toxic patterns they have been in for decades.
Plus, Dr. Phil meets Susan and Brad Black, who discuss how they successfully navigated through their divorce while continuing to run their company, EO.

In April 1996, 19-year-old Stacey Stites was found dead in a field 35 miles outside of Austin, Texas. Investigators found DNA linking her to a 28-year-old black man named Rodney Reed. Reed, who claimed he and Stacey were involved in a sexual relationship at the time of her death, was convicted of her rape and murder and sent to death row. Now 52, Rodney Reed has exhausted all his appeals and is just weeks away from execution, scheduled for November 20, 2019. But he insists he’s innocent of Stacey Stites’s murder, and there appears to be evidence backing up his claim. Could Rodney Reed be innocent? And if so, is there still time to stop his execution?
