The Chi (2018–…): Season 2, Episode 10 - Episode #2.10 - full transcript

Previously on The Chi...

Oh, you know the owners?

A little. You know where they went?

All I know is the father
got sick and moved down south.

What about the car?

If you want it, it's yours.

Otherwise, I'll have it hauled away.

Your mom told me about
the North Side school.

You know that school got better
things to offer than Hopkins.

I ain't trying to be nobody's sellout.

Our son has been
staying out of my house,

rent-free. I'ma need you

to slide me back what I been

sliding you all these years.

I ain't giving you shit.

Tiff, what... what's wrong?

I'm pregnant.

I kissed her,

but I only did it 'cause
I felt sorry for her.

Maisha, look, I didn't...

Get the fuck out.

Get the fuck out of here, Ronnie!

What's wrong, babe?

Feels like you're hiding something.

The people who
are guarding your truck...

they work for me.

We're all a part of the Company.

So you're 63rd...

I'm a businessman.

This cat don't care about
killing a white woman

in broad daylight. He'd care even less

about killing your black ass.

You need to tell your
woman to borrow the cash

from that fat-cat daddy of hers

and pay that crazy motherfucker Douda,

who I told you was crazy.

There's a delicate balance

that needs to be maintained

in order to conduct business discreetly

in our ecosystem,

but you, my young friend, like it noisy.

What'd you do,

pull this taco down from heaven?

I didn't get your name.

Brandon Johnson,

we're here to serve a search warrant.

Don't I know you?

Yeah, we met.

I'm Alice.

Detective Alice Toussaint.

Step off the truck.

Why? What the fuck did I do?

We got
probable cause to believe

this vehicle is involved
in criminal activity.

Sir, step off the truck, please.

You got a concealed carry permit?

No, ma'am.

Brandon Johnson, you have
the right to remain silent.

Anything you say can and will

be held against you in a court of law.

You have the
right to an attorney.

The Scorpion and the Frog


Hey, I...

I just want to apologize
for what I said.



I got this on Amazon for a dollar.

You didn't have to do that.

I know I didn't,

but a third of the business owners

in the Loop went to that academy,

so there might actually
be a benefit in you going,

but that's not my problem anymore.

It's yours.

I thought you was different,

but instead,

you turned out to be just as basic

as your basic-ass friends.

Kev-isha in the house!

Yeah, Kev. When
y'all getting married?

Why don't y'all just shut the fuck up?

Jada, please. You
can't just quit like this.

Grandma's still in rehab,

but she'd want to say goodbye to you.

You mean a lot to her.

I already plan to call her
and say goodbye

and explain everything.

It's not an excuse, but

the day of our date,

Shanté came to get the baby
and got upset with me,

and that baby's the only thing left

I have of Jase.

The things I said,

the way I acted...

it was horrible,

and I'm sorry.

This is Jada.

Jada, this is Tracy.



I see you move on quick.

It's not like that.

Tracy's an old friend.

She's here to drive me to work.

Hey, if you guys need me
to leave, I can just go.

No, stay.

He's all yours.

Come on. Wait.

I don't want
to lose your friendship.

It's too late for that.

Where'd you get this?

I don't got nothing to say to you

until you tell me exactly
why you searched my truck

and what the hell this is all about.

It's about that $75,000
truck I know you can't afford,

the gang activity around it,

the 24-hour security detail

provided by the 63rd Street Mob.

I sell tacos, Detective.

I'm not a gangbanger.

I serve my food to
whoever wants to eat it.

You're telling me you don't
know anything about that?

This is not a game, Brandon.

Hood loyalty is bullshit.

You better start giving
some serious consideration

to self-preservation.

I'm not the one playing games here,


Any word on Tristan?

How's he doing?

He's better.

Sarge is helping me get him
moved to another facility.

Look, why don't you take a break?

Step back from this case for a minute.

Might be pushing yourself too hard,

too far. I've been there.

I know what can happen behind that.

I have no intention of letting this go,

not even for a second.

You know how this goes.

Touching him up like that was a message.

It could get worse.

Do you really want to put

your son in jeopardy like that?

I figured the shit out.

Remember the algorithm I told you about?

Yeah, the gang's untouchable member?

Otis Perry is it.

His record is surprisingly clean,

despite openly employing
active members of the gang,

and then there's this.

I was up all night
till it finally hit me.

F is the sixth letter in the alphabet.

C is the third.

Family C is the 63rd Street Mob.

They're not
using the gang as muscle.

They are the gang.

Every gang stamps what they do...

block territories, front businesses.

This is no different.

63rd's been waving their fucking flag

in our face the whole time.

Detective Toussaint,

we're ready to take your
guy for pictures and prints.

I'll bring him back in a minute.

Who you got in custody?

Brandon Johnson.

I'm fucking flipping him,
just like I told you I would.

She seems nice.

She hates me...

And I deserve it.

I did all that work on that car

for what?

I'm not doing a pity
party today, Ronnie.


Something to lift both of our spirits.

It's from Shanté.

In Arkansas?

I was gonna catch a
Greyhound down there.

Wanna come?

I don't know.

She was pretty upset with me.

She knows I talk to you.

And when I mentioned your name,

she didn't say she
didn't want you to come.

Besides, I think she's
in a better place now,

being surrounded by family.

My car could make it,

but you'd have to drive.

Okay. That'll work,

but as long as I get to pick the music,

because you and your Chicago blues...

What's wrong with the blues?

Where are we going?

Just hold on.

What do you think?

Utilities included.

It's only $300 a month.

You gonna rent this place?


It's great, right?

Mm, baby, why don't you wait
until you have some more money?

Then you get a real place.

When am I gonna have more money, Mom?

I got this new job, but...

I still got three mouths to feed, too.

I know, but...

And where am I gonna
live in the meantime?

You're the one that kicked me out.

You gonna let me back in?


That chapter's closed.


given all that,

what do you think?


It has potential.

Potential. Yeah.

Failure to appear will result

in forfeiture of the bond,

and a warrant will be issued
for Mr. Johnson's arrest.

Hey. I heard what happened.

People saw it and they told me.

I came as soon as I got word.

- Are you okay?
- No!

I'm not.

And what people? You mean
the gang motherfuckers

you had guarding my truck
when I didn't know about it?

That's why I'm in this situation

- in the first place.
- Listen to me.

Thank you.

I never been arrested in my life.

I prided myself on that.

I understand.

Me, either,

but it's a minor weapons violation.

I got you the best lawyer in town,

and we'll get you a nice suit for court.

It'll be over before you know it.

You need to trust me.

Look, I don't want to have
nothing to do with this,

so tell me what I gotta
do to get the fuck out.

If it's money, I'll work it off.

I'll sell everything I got.

Young man,

I understand you're scared,

but I will handle this...

... And it will go away.

I still believe in you, son,

so let's stay focused
on the goal at hand:

to make you a success.

I gotta get back to work.

All right.

What in the hell happened?

And what is he doing here?

J, just... I'm ready to go.

I'll explain when we get home.

If I was a betting man,
I'd say Kev's mad at us.

For what? What'd we do?

Making fun of him and Maisha.

But that shit was funny, yo!

He ain't really mad at that.

He can't be.

I mean, it's Maisha.

Hey, little man.

Get in the car.

You know him?

Yeah, from that pizza joint.

For what?

Just get in the car
'fore I pick your ass up

and put you in here.

You better go.

Okay, talk.

You can start with why you got arrested.

I don't know exactly.

Well, what did the police
tell you, Brandon?

That it had something to do with
gang activity around my truck.

Gang activity?

Because of Mr. Perry.

Apparently, his name
on the street is Douda,

and he's 63rd Street Mob.


He's, like, some kind of street boss.

And you've known this for how long?

I just found out today,
when he bailed me out.

Otis Perry bought you a new truck,

was investing all this money into you,

mentoring you,

and you never knew
he was 63rd Street Mob?

No, I did not.

That makes no sense.

I don't know what you
want me to tell you, J!

I just know I don't need you grilling me

with 20 questions right now.

You know what?

I have to get back to
the campaign office.

So you're just gonna leave

and go back to work now?

Before I say something I regret, yes.

That's what's best right now for me.

Is Emmett here?

There a reason you
ain't returned my calls?

'Cause I ain't trying
to hear your mouth.

I'm not looking for no lectures

or no long-winded-ass stories.


Well, look who's coming up in the world.

It's Mr. Bigshot.

Can I help you with something?

Tiff came by looking for you.

Came all the way down
here to tell me that?

Me and the family
met EJ for the first time.

He's a handsome boy.

We had a wonderful time with him.

Well, Tiff had no business doing that.

I bring EJ to meet you when I'm ready.

Boy, what the hell you talking about?

That's my grandchild.

And she told me she was pregnant,

and hadn't heard from your
ass since telling you about it.

The hell is that about?

And here comes the lecture.

You can call it what you want,

but you can't leave that
girl out in the cold.

I may have issues with your mama,

but I know she ain't
raise you like that.

You know what? Me and Tiff
don't need you in our business,

and I'm not even sure
that baby's mine, anyway.

Now, why would any
girl in her right mind

lay a baby on your broke ass?

- Okay, look, maybe it's mine.
- Mm-hmm.

But the point is, I can't be having

another baby right now.

I'm struggling to take care
of the ones I got as it is,

and I'm not trying to be like you.

Look, unless you got
something else to say,

I-I gotta get back to work.

I got clothes your little
brother's grown out of.

EJ can use them.

So come by the house and get them.

Actually, I do have
something else to say.

Congratulations on your new position.

Thank you. Enjoy.

Best in the city.

I was at that Kenwood game

when Jason scored 63 points on them.

I ain't know that was your son.

I remember what he
meant to the South Side.

I'd never wish that on nobody,

and I know exactly how
you feel when you thought

you found out who did it.

The pain, the rage...

I felt the same way

when I found out about
my little brother.

And I ain't saying it's
right, 'cause it ain't,

and every time I think about you,

I wish something bad on you...

... but I get it.

I get it.

Jason was the reason I
got up in the morning.

You wanted it to haunt me.

It does, man.

Every single day.

Look, I swear to God,

I wish I could bring Coogie back.

I'm really sorry for
killing your little brother.

I'll let you get back to your work.

♪ At Perry's Pizza ♪

For dates, friends, and family fun,

Perry's Pizza has
something for everyone,

and we're not just pizza.

With over 63 delicious combinations,

from pasta and lasagna
to burgers and fries...

He's quite a young man.

Got a lot of potential.

Just trying to keep his
ass on the right track.

This kid shit ain't easy.

It takes a village.

That's why I asked you to stop by.

I'd like to give Jake a job,

working for me after
school, on the weekends,

here at the restaurant.

What the fuck he going to do here?

Don't underestimate
your little brother.

I've been watching
him. He's a sharp kid.

He'll make deliveries, bus tables,

take out the trash,

make coin exchanges...
those sorts of things.

The Company needs to
develop the next generation

in order to secure its future.

Jake needs to be insulated

from the trappings of the block.

There's nothing we can do
with him if he has a rap sheet

long enough to wipe his ass with

by the time he's in the ninth grade.

Can you guarantee
that won't happen, Reg?

So what, you talking
about making him official?

Something like that.

Let me ask you something, Douda.

Is there anything that
I can do different?

Anything you want me to tighten up?

You know I'm all about taking
the Company to the next level.

You're doing a fine job, Reg.

You have nothing to worry about.

Okay, cool.

I'm for it.


Then I should get back to business.


tell the waitress I
said to give you guys

whatever you want from the menu.

- Good day.
- Yeah.

You see me talking to Mr. Perry?

He said you could have
whatever you want on the menu.

And guess what else.

You play your cards right,

you might be him one day.

What you think about some
player shit like that?

That'd be cool.

It ain't just cool.

It's what I've been trying
to teach you all along.

All right?

Let me school you on these darts,

'cause your ass ain't
hit a bull's-eye yet.

See, look, you gotta
line it up like that.

Right? Right.

What's up, little man?

It's Thursday.

I'm here for a haircut, remember?


I didn't, but come on.

Where's your girlfriend?

You're a nosy little
something, ain't you?

Haven't seen her all day, though.

Whatever I told you
about women and relationships,

I take it back.

I thought I knew. Turns
out I don't know shit.

Me either.

How your girl trip?

Wasn't her. It was me.

My boys were talking shit about her,

and I ended up saying something stupid.

It happens.

If you play your cards
right, she'll get over it.

What you mean?

You gotta fall on your sword.

Text her, call her,

and keep saying sorry
till you get tired,

and then after that,

say you're sorry again.

Guess I could do that.


Not following the
crowd ain't easy, Kev...

... but if you wanna be a man,

it's something you gotta do.

How you want it?

Like yours.

Word. Really?


It's time to cut it off, anyways.

Time to do something different.

Well, let's do the damn thing.

Something or someone better be on fire,

'cause last time you were here,
I told you to never come back.

You interested
in a peace offering?

Clothes for EJ.

I told Emmett to come by and get 'em,

but betting he ain't gonna show.

He's still mad at me.

You been in and out
of his life, Darnell.

Then you ask him for rent.
What'd you expect?

Uh, wasn't that.

He's upset I called him out
about the new baby.

What new baby?

Oh, shit. He ain't tell you.

Emmett don't need no more kids.

How the hell did this happen?

We didn't talk details, Jada, but...

I'm guessing the boy
just don't like condoms.

I wonder where he gets that from.

And just when he seemed
to be getting on his feet.

I mean, how the hell
is he gonna get ahead

if he keeps having
babies on top of babies?


Damn, there's a lot of clothes in here.

You know how it is.

They outgrow them
before you even use them.


Emmett grew like a
weed when he was little.

I used to buy clothes two sizes too big.


But you wouldn't know about all that,

since you weren't
exactly around for that.

Jada, at some point,

you're gonna have to stop seeing me

as that 25-year-old boy
I was when we met.

I've changed.

You know, Darnell...

you are probably telling
the truth right now,



I've had enough of men preaching

the gospel of change to me.

Oh, shit.

Don't tell me you're on that black women

"men are all dogs" train.

If the shoe fits...

Oh, you're gonna shake your head?

Let me edu-ma-cate you.

So last week,

I was supposed to go
on this date, right?


I get all dressed up,

all cute,

and here he comes showing
up pissy-ass drunk.

Who? I know him?

N-no, never mi... never mind who.

I'm just telling you what dating
is like these days for the sisters.

- Hmm.
- You lucky you married.


Grass is always greener, hmm?

Marriage is work.

Oh, Lord.

As a single woman,

there's nothing I hate more

than married people talking
about how hard marriage is.

I'm just saying, me and
Cheryl are always so busy.

There's kids running
around all the time.

We're basically roommates.

Shit, I can't even remember
the last time we had sex.

Well, you had
enough of it in your day,

so you could probably use a break.

Or can't you?


You may have a point.

I mean,

since sex with Cheryl
has never been, you know,

like what we had.

I'm not being fresh.

I'm just telling the truth.

Look, we had a real connection

in the bedroom.


Sex was good.


Can you believe we're
gonna be grandparents,

- again?
- Mm, mm.


That's crazy. That's for sure.


Mm! What... what the hell, Darnell?

- Mom!
- Oh!

Da-Darn... Oh, what the fuck?

- Emmett, wait, wait.
- Oh, my God!

- Wait, Emmett, come back!
- Oh, my...

- Emmett!
- It's not what it looks like!


Oh, my God.


Consistently ranked

among the ten most
dangerous cities in the U.S.,

Chicago is...

Where you going?

A trip to Arkansas with Trace.

Baby's getting baptized.

Well, ain't nobody told me nothing.

Is Jada coming over while you gone?

Jada's busy,

but I got some of your friends
from the community center

coming over to stay with you.

Tracy, huh?

What, y'all seeing each other again?

No, Grandma.

Just going on a road
trip for the grandbaby.

Another vehicle
drove by and opened fire,

striking both victims multiple times.

Now, according to Chicago police...

... and the Cook County

medical examiner's office,

the male victim was pronounced dead

at the scene and the woman was taken

to Northwestern Memorial Hospital...

We're closed.

Would you please let me
talk to you for a minute?

Emmett, I'm your mother.

Give me a chance.

Why was he even over there?

Why you been talking to him,

after everything he's done
to you over the years,

everything he said?

Emmett, look.

Your dad and I have a history,

a very complicated one.

Now, I had a lot of dreams attached
to a future with that man,

and it didn't work out,

and I'm fine with that, but...

I get lonely.

What you mean, you get lonely?

You got me. You got work, friends.

What you get lonely for?

I guess in the moment,

my feelings were running
deeper than I thought.

He's married, Mom. He-he's got a family.

- Kids.
- I know that,

and I would hate nothing more
than to disrupt any of that.

Then maybe you shouldn't have done it.

Maybe you should've kept your shirt on,

or maybe you shouldn't be drinking

if you can't handle your liquor.


I'm gonna tell you something shocking.

Your mama ain't perfect.

She's a woman, and she's
figuring her life out,

just like you are.

You gotta give me room to do that.

Can you try and understand?

Ma, you can't be figuring
out your life with Darnell.

Honey, the only thing I need
to hear from you right now

is "yes".

"Yes, I understand, Ma."

How many mistakes have you made,

and I've never turned my back on you?

Yes, Ma. I understand.

Thank you.

Now... what's this I hear

about Tiff being pregnant again,

and you not acknowledging the baby?

Man, Darnell got a big mouth.

Look, you don't gotta say nothing.

I know what I gotta do.


Then I'll leave you to it.

years with total care.

It really
does replace an entire gym

full of equipment.

So that's what we doing?

The fucking silent treatment?

I get arrested and
you disappear all day?

You been with this motherfucker?

What, he more important than me?

You get arrested, and that's
what you're upset about?

How did you buy my ring?

I try not to think the worst,

to allow myself to buy into all of this

but you knew, and you stayed in business

with Otis Perry anyway, didn't you?

Ain't that simple, J!

You don't just get to walk
away from this kind of shit.

Maybe you can, but I can't.

I wouldn't be in this kind of shit.

Is this who you're gonna be?

Exactly what they want you to be?

Some kind of thug?

Don't even fucking go there!

Just because you on that high
and mighty politics shit, you...

It ain't got shit to do with that.

I don't want to date a man

who has an arrest record,

does business with gangbangers,

and doesn't tell me.

This isn't how I want to raise a family.

I can deal with a lot
of things, but not this.

So what are you saying to me?

This isn't working for me.

You know how hard it was
for me to start this business

and stay positive

with all these doors
slamming in my face?

Every single day I leave this house,

I'm playing defense,

and I gotta claw my way up to zero.

And where'd you grow up?

While you was at your little...

Jack and Jill meetings,

I was staring into
an empty refrigerator,

standing on corners,
begging people for money,

because me and Coogie gotta eat.

You privileged, J.

And that ain't your fault,

but don't think for a second

that you gonna talk to me

like I'm not a man,

because I am,

and you don't know shit about being one.

I'm not saying your life

wasn't rough, but you don't have to fall

- into the traps...
- Don't come at me

with bullshit speeches about traps,

'cause ain't nothing
positive about me pulling

my pissy-ass mama out of bars

and out of different pimps'
cars every other week.

So you can get the fuck out of here

with that fake-ass,
bourgie out-of-touch shit

that you talking,
because I'm sick of it.

I'm sick of that shit.

We're just...

too different.

Come on,
Jerrika. Don't do this.

- Jerrika, don't...
- Don't.

I'll come back and get my stuff later.

When did he start doing that?

Eating all by himself?

For a while now.

Damn. Guess I missed a lot, huh?

Think he still remember me?

I can tell him you're here,

and see what happens.

Hey, I'm really sorry I haven't called.

I just... freaked out.

It is what it is.

I'm tripping out about
the whole thing, too.

You thought about what you want to do?

Hey! Guess who's here!

Daddy! You want to see Daddy?

Ah, shit! Kev out here

looking like Idris Elba!

And your head ain't even shaped funny.

Ha. Thanks.

I know this fool ain't
doing what I think he doing

after I almost got
expelled for that shit.

asks the scorpion, "Yo,

why you do that?" The scorpion says,

"It's who I am. It's in my nature."

Jake gonna be Jake.

This Candyman-looking dude

picked him up from school.

Don't know what that was about, either.

But yo, I've been meaning
to talk to you about Maisha.

Yo, if you gonna crack jokes...

Nah, we was just playing.

We didn't even mean nothing by it.

Actually, if you like it,

I love it. We boys, no matter what.

♪ Father, we've gathered ♪

♪ Here in your presence... ♪

I'm so glad you guys could come.

We wouldn't have missed it.

This is beautiful.

Yeah, oh.

Let me get the keys to the car.

Okay, I'll be right back.

What you need the keys for?

You got a DUI. You know you can't drive.

I need the keys, Trace.

I need to go somewhere.

- Where?
- It's my car!

I'm not about to argue with you.

Now give them to me.

But if you come back here drunk,

don't come back.

It's not much,

but it's safe. It's childproof.

And you did this all by yourself?

Yep. Just me.

It's not bad.

$300 a month.

Pretty good deal.

Look, I don't know how I'm gonna
take care of a fourth child,

but I'ma make it work,

and we can figure
this shit out together.


I can live with that.


Come on.

Come here.

This Daddy's new spot.

Let's play with some toys.

Where did Dad go?

All right, go? Missed you, bro.

Missed you.

H-how'd you find me?

You know my grandma.

She's kept track of you over the years.

Found your address in one
of her old phone books.

My grandbaby's not far from here.


All those years, you
lived across the street...

- never had a word for me.
- Yeah.

For a long time, I couldn't figure out

why I struggled so much.

Even now...

... I did a terrible thing,

made an awful mistake,

something I'll never forgive myself for.

I heard about that.

I needed some things

from you

that I'd been searching

all over the place for...

... A sense of family,
a real connection...

... A place to belong.

... And searching for that led me

to some dark places in my life.

But the other day, Coogie's brother...

I ran into him,

and he did something for me...

... I need to do for you.


I poured everything I had into this car.

I can help you get this
back to how it used to be,

if you let me.

You hungry?

I could eat something.

Let me get a motherfucking bucket

of that crispy spicy,
some corn on the cob...

I'm gonna need about a straight
two dozen of them biscuits,

some baked beans...

wait, they ain't got no
pork in them, do they?

- N...
- No, no, I'll take it.

The crew'll eat it.

Um, some of that bomb-ass coleslaw,

a pound of brisket, a lot of
barbecue sauce on the side.

Hell, yeah. A'ight, Big Mike,

what you want?

What you mean, what he want?

You just ordered for a damn army!

I can't give y'all
all this free food.

Man, get me them fries,

a tray of gizzards,

and 25 wings, mild.

Y'all can't be serious, man.

We about as serious
as that ass-whupping

you asked us to put
on that child molester.

I did fuck him up, didn't I?

You was like
Mayweather on that ass.

Bro, don't
take shit so seriously.

It's just food.

Did you see his face
when I took this pie?

I don't even like pie.

You wild, boss man.


What I gotta do?

The gun.

Let's talk about it.

There's three bodies on it.

Three bodies carry three life sentences.

I ain't never shot nobody
in my life, Detective.

I believe you, Brandon.

You don't strike me as the type.

I want Otis Perry.

You help me bring him down,

and I'll protect you.

Can I ask you something?

You heard of the scorpion and the frog?

Which one am I?

It was a land grab.

Miss Ethel's home invasion,

gang's proceeds from dope and guns,


Run the property value
down with the violence,

buy up all the homes.

Eventually, with a new trauma center,

value shoots back up.

Gang gentrification
at its finest.


and he's the scorpion.
