Ironically, her actions are no different from her husband's as both had affairs after getting bored with their spouse and had plans for a new life. Also both were forced to hide their criminal past from their lovers who fought crime.
While out with Terry, Tasha refused to go to a ceremony rewarding James for being a good citizen for making something out of himself after being falsely accused. However, this was a mistake as a crooked cop named Raymond Jones killed her daughter Raina after she confronted him for trying to kill Tariq.
As a result, Tasha felt guilty for not going as doing so would have protected her daughter. She gets help in tracking down Ray Ray from Angela as well helping Tommy and James in avenging her daughter.

Terry believes she is talking about James and tells her to have her husband a new lawyer but Tasha realizing it was partially her fault for her children's paths takes credit for the act. After Terry states he cannot be both her lover and lawyer, he tells her to choose which one as she takes out a check and tells him to represent her.
Tasha speaks to Lakeisha about everything before Terry sends Tasha a text and tells her to go to his home. When she gets there, Tasha finds that Terry has had his home cleaned out and left a note with an apology as he has chosen to look out for himself than her and leave the city. Tasha was heartbroken by this note and cried.
Tasha confronts James and Angela over this but learns they had nothing to do with it. Tasha has had enough and decides to turn herself in for the killing of Ray Ray but James stops her and says he'll go down for their family. This surprises her and she looks at her husband in shock.
