Previously, on
"The Chi"...

Hey, listen to your boy, you
better get the fuck on, shorty.

Think that shit
supposed to scare me?

I ain't leaving
without my sister.

I'm so sick of your shit,

I'm sick of yours, too.

Both of y'all need to calm down
right now.

Please tell her
to let me get some sleep.

- I've been up all night. Damn.
- I work, too!

And I take care of our son!

Damn! About time!

This is what I get for trying
to support black businesses.

How fast can you
get this man his food?

If you gonna be serving
family-size meals,

then I need some
family-size help.

We ain't got the budget
or the space for that just yet.

Look, guys, there aren't
too many of us here.

I don't care about
these white people.

These white folks
are still running shit,

and the only way
for us to fix it

is to outrun
these motherfuckers.

We can't just be excellent.
We got to be phenomenal.

Maybe you don't
want to live here.

Maybe I should let your
brother Trig come for you.

Nah, I want to stay with you.

Then take
your fucking shoes off

before you come into my house.

Get your dusty ass up, man.

Hey, hey!
Hey, get off of him! Get off!

My brother, are you all right?

- I want to pay you back.
- Don't worry about it.

- I don't like handouts.
- This is not a handout.

My daughter isn't a saint.

She thinks she knows everything
like most teenagers.

But the truth is,

she's got a lot to learn
about life.

And I don't think
we should judge her

for stumbling along the way.

Please don't judge my daughter
by who she is now.

But help me bring her home

so she can grow into the woman

I know she has
the potential to be.

Hey, what you doin'?

I couldn't sleep. Thought I'd

- Why?
- So it'd be nice

when she comes home.

You know something I don't?

What you think about,
you bring about.

So I'm thinking
about bringing her home.

You want me to make you
some breakfast or something?

No, I'm good.

And when is the last time
you talked

with the private investigator?

Um, yesterday.

He needs another five grand
to follow up some leads he has.

Fuck. Every time
you talk with this dude,

he's just asking
for more money.

Look, sooner or later,
somebody's gonna call in

with something real.

Okay? Trust me.

I hope so.

I just want this to be over.

Me too, babe.

Come here. Me too.

Shh, shh.

- I just...
- Shh.


But this is from
a really cool variety.


Season 03 Episode 04

Episode Title : "Gangway"
Aired on: July 12, 2020

Phil's growing.

So what I'm just gonna do

is I'm just gonna blanche
them, you know.

Make them...
Just real briefly.

Okay, so...
see how they're turning this

kind of groovy green color.

Just chill them.
Yeah, just a bit.

So I'm gonna make a little
shell bean ragout.

So we're gonna need
a little bit more...


Again, a little more chill,

and a little more
of this thyme.

So this way,
what you're doing then

you're just reinforcing
these flavors.

A-and remember,
you want to season...

Anybody down here?

Man, politics
is boring as hell.

It's better than
wiping down tables

and sweeping floors every day.

You know, I like Mr. Perry,
and his deep dish has

the perfect
cheese-to-sauce ratio,

but why is he running
for mayor of Chicago?

He the pizza man.

He's not just the pizza man.

The pizza joint
was just the beginning.

He fed the community,
now he's trying to make sure

everybody has the means
to feed themselves.

Man, you sound like
his campaign manager.

I pay attention.

You know, I don't know
if he has my vote just yet.

You're not even old enough
to vote.

I know, but I still want to
know what's going on.

You don't know shit.

I know I like that lady
that's running against him.

You only like her
'cause she black and lesbian.

Don't be mad
'cause I'm progressive.

Just because she black and gay
don't make you progressive.

Hey, I like her slogan.

"I'm the change
Chicago's been waiting for."

Man, that bitch ain't nothing
but a wolf in sheep's clothing.

Well, she need to get
a clothing line,

'cause her suits be lit.

Yeah, she do got drip.

Who's texting you?

Don't worry about it.

Better not be
that bougie bitch Jemma.

Yo, call her a bitch again,
and we fightin'.

Whoa, who's Jemma?

Some stuck-up girl
that go to our school.

Man, I already told y'all

to give me all the tea
in the group chat.

- I don't like being left out.
- Man, ain't nobody

thinking about
that damn group chat.

And why you name it
"Spill the Tea"?

The name is temporary.

Now what's up with Jemma?

She a black girl
that be acting white.

She got rich parents, and she
know how to work the system.

I like her already.

And she speak fluently
in French.

- Impressive.
- And she don't want us

to fuck up, 'cause there's not
that much black kids

- at the school.
- I get that.

I don't like that bitch.

Yo, what I told you?

Whoa, hey.
I got to meet this girl.

I'm here for anybody
that's gonna upgrade my boy.

I don't need no girl
upgrading me.

Shit, you need a girl so you
can get them locks groomed.

My shit don't always
got to be groomed.

Messy locks is one thing,

but your shit lookin' like
Meek Mill's first album cover.

Nigga, that's a compliment.

So when you taking this girl
on a date, Kev?

I'm trying to see if she want
to go to the museum.

- That sound boring as fuck.
- Perfect.

It's this new exhibit
about black music

and the Civil Rights Movement.


Yeah, she into history
and shit.

How you gonna finger her
at a museum?

Bro, I'm trying to show her
I ain't like these other dudes.

What you mean "other dudes"?

He ain't dusty like you.

Hey, I'm proud of you, bro.

They still lookin'
for this bitch?

Waste of fuckin' time, G.

Some crazy motherfucker

probably chopped
her ass up already.

What the fuck
is wrong with you?

- That's my sister, homey!
- Let's go.

What you mean it's too cold
to be grillin'?

It ain't never too cold
for me to get on the grill.

Hey, what up, Darnell?

The rent and my blood pressure.

- What you want?
- I need some advice.

Talk to me.

This is kind of weird.

Spit it out.

Me and Tiff really been trying

to make
this relationship thing work.

Yeah, your mama told me.

She said y'all was doin'
pretty good.

Yeah, I'm serious.
I ain't cheated or nothin'.

You don't get
no brownie points for that.

I think she's getting

We ain't fucked
in over a month.

She's suckin' your dick
every now and then, ain't she?

No, she ain't doin'
none of that.

Are you romancing her?

Takin' out the trash?
Oiling her scalp?

I do the best I can,
but I ain't never

had to do no extra shit
to get some.

Yeah, that's the thing
about being grown.

It ain't always
about your needs.

And at the end of the day,

the longer you with someone,
the more you get used to 'em.

Folks do get comfortable.

I mean, you ain't
washing your ass

as thoroughly as you used to.

Y'all probably be fartin'
around each other

and shit, huh?


The mystery is gone, man.

- How do I get it back?
- Depends on the woman.

You try talking to her
about it?

Yeah, I mean, but she gets
mad at me for bringing it up.

She's like, "It'll happens
when it happens."

Then she's like,
"Talkin' about not fuckin'

ain't gonna make me
want to fuck."

It's like, then what the fuck
am I supposed to do?

Yeah, she probably
fuckin' somebody else.


You need to go
through her phone and quick.

- Well, what's her sign?
- She a Scorpio.

You want the usual?

Nah, I need something

I need something

Ain't nothin'.

Bye, Dante.

Hey, you ever need
some good dick,

God damn it,
you know where to find it.

Shit, you understand me.

What the fuck
is you doin' here?

I-I don't want no trouble.

I might have some information
on Kiesha.

I'm listening.

When I was locked up,

there was this white guy
named Jeremiah O'Dwyer

who was in there
on a rape charge.

Got out a few months ago.

I saw him at the vigil
the other night.

Looked him up
on the sex offender registry.

He's staying with his father
over in Woodlawn.

- You think he got Kiesha?
- Yeah, I got a feeling.

But that don't mean shit.

No, no, no, no.
Some... something off about him.

That's why
I broke into his house.

Why would you do that?

I had to be sure.

Oh, my God.

This prove he got a thing
for underage girls.

All right, well,
maybe we should call the cops.

No, no, no, no.
That... that...

That'd just make him
cover his tracks.

- So what you want me to do?
- I want to go talk to him.

But... but I need you
to come with me.

No, bro. I'm not trying
to get arrested.

No, if I'm right,

look, the last thing the cops
are gonna do is arrest us.

Why you so invested?

I promised my grandma I'd do
something good with my life

before she died.

I know I'm not perfect...

...but I'm all you got
right now.

I don't know why you scrollin'
through her Instagram.

These girls ain't fools.

They probably don't even
follow each other on there.

She probably fuckin' one of
these dudes she sell weed to.

You got her
in your mama's house.

Shit, she could be
fuckin' anybody.

Man, I don't believe
this shit.

I thought we was
building something.

Yeah, just get you a side piece
and call it even.

This is what I get
for being faithful?

Boy, cheatin' is in your DNA.

Fuck that.
I'm trying to break the cycle.

Oh, so she can cheat,
but you can't.

I don't even know
if she's cheating.

Well, you better find out.

Well, the judge said we got
to go to couple's therapy.

Maybe I'll ask her then.

You don't need
no couple's therapy

to tell if your girl
is cheatin'.

She got to earn that.

I like that.

Kevin, so glad
you could make it.

Right this way, please.

Matt, I'd like to introduce you
to Kevin Williams

- and his mother...
- Nina.

Yes, of course.

Now, Kevin is a shining example

as to why your donations
to the scholarship program

are so important.

He wouldn't be able to attend
Northside Academy

without your generous

Your son could be
the next Ben Carson.

Let's hope not.

Well, I'm just happy
to play a small role

in making sure he grows up
to be all he can be.

I think he would do that
even without your help.

I'm sure.

Chicago needs to be run
more like a business,

not like a social program.

We need to rein in
city spending

and make education
more of a priority.

Yes, and just like Whitney,
we believe the children

are our future.

Douda sure got
good taste in women.

Aw, fuck!

Can you believe that?

What... what's so funny?

One of the donors just mistook
your mom for the cook.

Ma, can we go?

A lot of these donors
have never even had dinner

with a black person,

let alone a conversation.

I mean, look around.

We make them so uncomfortable.

They don't know
if they should hug us

or ask us to shine their shoes.

Racial harmony is a fantasy.

I just wish it wasn't always
the oppressed people's job

to educate the oppressor.

I mean, haven't we
done that enough?

I like you.

Me too.

Um, I am going
to get another glass of wine.

Very nice to meet you,
young lady.

The pleasure was all mine.

- Nice outfit.
- Thanks.

You dress up for me
or for the event?

What you think?

So you gonna buy somethin'?

Try this...
Are you going to buy something?

Are you going to buy something?

Nah, auctions
remind me too much of slavery.

So you had me
repeat the question

just so you could say that.

Anyway, speaking of slavery,

uh, I got an extra ticket
to the Civil Rights exhibit.

Want to roll?

You just happen to have
two tickets?


Did anybody ever tell you
you're a really bad liar?

- Just meet me there tomorrow.
- Don't get mannish.

You gonna meet me there or not?

Are you going to meet me there
or not?

I'll be there.

The plan is to open
a brand-new wing

at the Cancer Research Center
by third quarter next year.

Brandon, who was one of
our early board members,

came in, helped us with
a great first round of funding.

Why is everybody hangin' off
your daddy's nut sack?

'Cause he got money.

Does he like
donating to campaigns?

Depends on the candidate.

Uh, Mr. St. John,
sorry to interrupt, but...

...I think
you should know my dad.

Yes, Mr. Perry.

How's the mayoral
campaign going?

It's going great.
It's going great.

Oh, I, uh, see your wife

is helping you
on the campaign trail.


I didn't know
you had a son.

Yeah, Jacob here
is a more recent blessing.

His brother
used to work for me,

but, unfortunately,
gun violence claimed his life.

Man, I remember what it used
to be like on the South Side.

You know, nowhere to turn,
nobody to look up to.

Felt like I was all alone.

Jacob's mother...
She's in rehab right now

fighting to stay clean.

So he needed
a roof over his head

and somebody that would
always be there for him.

And rather than
trying to find that person...

I decided to be that person.

I'm in the process of, uh...

adopting him.

I've always wanted a son.

My wife and I... we weren't able
to have children,

so he is truly
an answered prayer.

Well, that's quite a story.

Yeah, you know,
and I wish more folks

were doing what I'm doing,

and there would be a lot less
violence out on the streets.

Now, y'all know I don't believe

in the separation

'cause I don't understand
how you can vote for somebody

that don't vote for God.

I want to vote
for a politician

that believes
in putting God first.

So tonight
I'm gonna bring you someone

who's not afraid to put prayer
back in politics.

So please give a warm welcome
to my longtime friend

and the woman who hopefully is
gonna be Chicago's next mayor,

Miss Camille Hallaway.


How y'all doing tonight?

You good?

Did y'all read
the headlines this morning?

Yeah, a little boy
was shot and killed

in front of his mother's house
in broad daylight.

Last week I read about

a young lady
that's gone missing,

and her parents are doing
everything they can to find her

because the police
aren't being helpful.

Now, I was supposed
to come up here

and talk about my plans
to get this city working again,

to work on improving
our failed school system,

but it's hard to do that
when our children aren't safe.

Now, that's not the Chicago
I remember.

I could play outside all day.

My mother
was gainfully employed.

When I got out of line,

my neighbors
would discipline me.

That's the Chicago
I know and love.

I often hear
people talking about,

where are our
black leaders at?

Who's the next MLK?

Where's Malcolm? Who gonna be
the next Shirley Chisholm?

But I'm here to tell you,

it's time to stop looking
to other people

to lead you
to the promised land.

- That's right.
- I ain't Jesus.

- You got that right.
- I'm just a woman

standing before you,
asking you to lead yourselves.

See, I don't want to
walk in front of you.

I want to walk alongside you,

because we're all
in this together.

- Yeah.
- This is our city.

Our ancestors built this city,

brick by brick,
with bloody hands.

And how dare we
spill each other's blood on

the streets they marched on?

It's time for us
to stop playing the blame game

and become the heroes
we in here praying for.

Now, my opponent...
Otis or Douda

or whatever he want to
call himself this week...

Don't care about you.

All he wants is a bigger office
with a nice view.

And to be real, that's what
most politicians want.

But lucky for you,
I'm not a politician.

I'm a chick from the South Side

whose grandmother was a part
of the Great Migration

and whose mom fought
for civil rights.

I'm not here
to give you talking points.

I'm here to ask questions,

like, why in the last 15 years

has Chicago lost
over 250,000 black residents

'cause they could no longer
afford to live here?

Why is the lifespan
in Englewood 30 years less

than those living
in the Gold Coast?

Why do they keep shutting down
mental-health clinics

and schools on the South Side?

These are questions
I don't have the answers to.

But if you put me in office,

I'll make it my business
to go get us some.

Now, a lot of y'all
don't know me, and that's okay.

But over the course
of this campaign,

I promise
to let you into my home.

I want you to meet my family.

I want you to know how I became
the woman I am today.

Now, before you go digging,
I'll tell you right now,

I ain't perfect.

I have not always done
the right thing.

But guess what.
Neither have you.

So I implore you not to demand
something of your leaders

you don't demand of yourself.

We're all made in God's image,

and we've all done
our share of sinning.

But that don't
have nothing to do

with me making
Chicago great again.

And that's what
I've come here to do.

And if you with me,
let me get an "amen."

Mmm, this is way better

I really like that girl Jemma.

Yeah. Me too.

Does she know
about your sister?

I understand if you don't
want people to know.

I just don't want anybody
feeling sorry for me.

You always had
a way with words,

even when you were
a little girl.

They're not just words, Pastor.

I meant what I said.

Hey, you don't have to
convince me.

You already have my vote.

I appreciate you.

What she paying you for, Dad?

Boy, you better stay
out of grown folks' business.

I just feel like
we ain't connecting.

Tiff, you seem bothered
by that statement.

We have a son together.

How much more connected
can we be?

Well, having a child
actually makes it difficult

for parents to be connected.

They often get bogged down
by the responsibilities

that go along
with being a parent.

Well, I'm usually the one that
does most of the parenting.

See, that's my other issue.

No matter how much
I do for our son,

she don't be appreciating shit.

I'm not gonna give you
a round of applause

every time you take him
to the park.

I'm not asking
for a round of applause.

Well, what do you want, then?

I want us to have sex
twice a week.

Oh, so that's what
this is about?

When couples aren't having sex,
there's usually

- a bigger problem at hand.
- Like what?

Well, that's what we're here
to find out.

Negro, I work all day, and
I take care of our son at night

while you out slinging barbecue
with some bitch.

When am I supposed to find time
to fuck you twice a week?

I don't know,
but you need to find it.

Let's not make demands.

If we don't figure
this shit out, I'll go

- find mine somewhere else.
- Are you s...

Threats aren't helpful,

Really, nigga?
After all we've been through,

you gonna sit here
and threaten me with that shit?

I don't want to be that nigga,
but what do you want me to do?

Jerk off or something.

- See what I'm sayin'?
- Tiffany.

Let's talk about
what you need from Emmett

in order for you
to want to be intimate.

He can start
by doing the dishes.

All right, fine.

But don't do it just for that.

All I know is you better not
be fuckin' somebody else.

I'm not like you.

I don't know.
You Scorpios is savage.

Here you go.

You must've been talkin'

to your trifling-ass daddy.

That's his problem.

How you gonna
take relationship advice

from somebody
who got seven kids

by five different baby mamas,

and he about to get
another divorce?


You want to know
why I ain't fucking you?

Please tell me.

'Cause I ain't trying
to get pregnant again.

I thought... I thought
you was on birth control.

I got off.
Had my hormones all jacked up.

Okay, I'll wear a condom.

Nigga, please.

Why don't you
get your tubes tied?

Why don't you get a vasectomy?

I see why you like her.

She ain't give a fuck.

My daddy didn't want me
to have a thing

about being dark-skinned,

so he always made sure
that I had positive images

of dark-skinned women
growing up.

- That's dope.
- I'm just curious as to why

they chose
to highlight "Four Women"

instead of
"Mississippi Goddam."

People are still afraid of her.

They try to make her palatable
for white audiences.

Yeah, you're right.

Maybe you should tell 'em.


You ain't said nothin'
but a word.

Come on.

Do me a favor
and stop watering down

Ms. Simone's legacy.

- Excuse me?
- You heard what she said.

Stop pouring water
on Ms. Simone.

Stop rewriting our history.


- Let me see your tickets.
- Why?

I intend on writing a letter

to the executive director
of this museum

concerning my
extreme disappointment

with this exhibit
and the horrendous treatment

of two honor students
who are currently attending

one of the top schools
in the state.

I'm not an honor student.

Come on, Kevin, let's go.

Come on!

This is harassment.
I'm gonna call the cops.

We're on public property.
We ain't breakin' no laws.

I don't know shit
about that girl.


You better start talkin',

This nigga been to jail,
and he's homeless.

He ain't got shit to lose.

Ohh, fuck!

Next blow gonna
knock your teeth out.

- Mm-hmm.
- I don't know her name.

I-I just wanted to spend
a little time with her.

I didn't mean to hurt her,
I swear.

- Where the fuck is she?
- She's at the beach.

63rd Street Beach.

Thanks for
having my back earlier.


Would you get off your phone
and be present?

I'll do you one better.

I cannot wait
to tell my daddy about this.

Guess your dad's
a big deal, huh?

Yeah, he rich rich.

Come on.
Let's get out of here.

I got to tell you something.

- I can't... I can't...
- Shh, it's okay, it's okay.


is it possible
if you can turn the body over?


I just need to see her back.


- She had a tattoo on her back.
- No, she didn't.

Yes, babe, she did.

Not her.

It wasn't her.

It's not her.


Oh, my God.

Oh, oh.

Where is she?

I ain't gettin' fixed, man.

You might need to.

You fertile as hell, boy.

You on her side, too?

Hell, yeah.
You a lot to put up with.

Look, you just can't
expect your girl to give it up.

- You got to earn it.
- How?

Just think about the things
she likes and do that.

You the wisest man
I know, Sonny.

You only get to be wise

by making a lot
of mistakes.

The kid's a nice touch.

He's more than that.

Oh, so now you want
to be a daddy.

Okay, I wasn't ready
to be a father then.

It was too dangerous.

I know.

I always knew you would be
a great father.

I like this.

Rose, it's important
that we don't get too involved.

This is business.

Why are you running
for mayor anyway?

Because they told me
I couldn't.

One day my teacher,
she asked me

what I wanted to be
when I grew up.

And I said
I wanted to be mayor,

just like Harold Washington.

And she said,
"Harold Washington

"was born in Bronzeville.

"You're from Englewood.

You better find a trade."

You always love
proving people wrong.


But it's more than that, babe.

I want to show people
that a nigga from Englewood,

he can grow up and be more than
just a gangster.

I can run this city.

So this ain't just
a money play.


It's way bigger than that.

Something troubling you,
my brother?

I just saw the police...

find a young girl's body
by the lake.

My God.

Did you know her?

No, but...

I thought she was someone
I've been looking for.

Why were you looking
for her?

'Cause a voice told me
it's my destiny to find her.

That's what I've been
called to do.

You sayin'
the Lord spoke to you?

No, it wasn't like that.

God just put me
in the right place

at the right time.

Oh, well,
then you should feel blessed.

I mean, the good Lord
don't just speak to anybody.

No, but he led me
to the wrong girl.

Well, as long
as He's leading you,

that's all that matters.

Let me help you
get closer to God.

If you do,
maybe you can hear Him better.

Let me get a drag of that.

I'm sorry I didn't tell you
about the tattoo.

Her having a tattoo
is the least of my worries.

I'm just glad
it wasn't our daughter.

No, but she's someone else's.
