Previously on The Chi...

Can I help you?

I thought I heard someone
screaming the other night.

During the blackout.

My wife thought
she heard something too.

- Is your wife here?
- Not at the moment, no.

You mind if I use your bathroom?

[Kiesha, muffled] Help! Help!

Help me! Help! Help!

- [Kiesha] Help me!
- You hear that?

- [kettle whistling]
- I must be hearing things.

Happens to me all the time.

Your love has been tested.

It will be tested again.

You might as well say something,

'cause you ain't getting
no more free weed.

Your dick is the force.

It'll always need more
than her pussy can provide.

That bitch is crazy.

You better not be cheating.

I am never gonna cheat on you.

You my one and only, I promise.

Otis "Douda" Perry
has never cared

about anything but himself.

He ain't [bleep].
He never will be [bleep].

Stop talking to the press.

That dyke ain't come to me.

- I called her.
- Why would you do that?

She'll make a wonderful mayor.

Much better mayor than my son
could ever be.

I love you too, Ma.

[overlapping chatter]

The fuck is going on here?


Shut this shit down

and get the fuck out
my establishment.

Hey, Miss Rich-Rich.

♪ Uneasy music ♪

What's wrong?

It's my fault those kids
know about your sister.

- Why would you do that?
- I'm sorry.

You think buying me shit's

gonna make the situation better?

Kiesha could be dead right now.

[Ronnie] She just
in her twilight,

but she used to own the place.

This place was like
a jazz sanctuary.

We was just happy to be black

and far away from the South.

That is one night
to remember, Ronnie.

How's that, Grandma?



♪ somber music ♪

My grandma loved me
more than my own mama did.

No matter what
bad things I done,

she always found a way
to tell me she was proud.

She may have cussed me out first

or hit me upside the head...


...but eventually she'd always
find a way to tell me...

...she just wanted
what was best for me.

I still haven't done enough

to make you proud of me yet,

but I will,

'cause I know
you're looking down,

waiting for me to be the man
you raised me to be.

To my angel.

[all] To Miss Ethel!

Damn, that was long.

I see why Miss Ethel
didn't want no funeral.

Black folks be long-winded
as fuck, man.

Nigga, that was his grandmother.

All I'm saying is, we need
to obey the woman's wishes.

She hated people
fussing over her.

If she was here now,
she'd be telling us

to kiss her black ass.

All right.
It was good seeing you.



Uh, I didn't expect you to show.

Your grandmother meant
a lot to me.

She wasn't just a patient.

She was a friend.

I'm gonna miss her.



What do you want, Ronnie?

Right, um...

I never got a chance
to apologize

for what happened
when we were together.

We were never together.

Well, I mean,
last time I saw you

when I came over, I...
I was drunk and, uh...

Maybe you should stop drinking.

Yeah, I know.

Do you?

'Cause I saw you
standing up there,

giving this great speech

about how you gonna make
Miss Ethel proud, and...

[sighs] ended up

drowning your sorrows
in brown liquor.

Well, a lot of people drink
at funerals.

Yeah, but you got
a drinking problem,

so maybe you should
sip on something else.

That's why my grandma liked you.

'Cause you always spoke
the truth,

whether folks wanted to hear it
or not.


Look, Ronnie, I...

I gotta go, but...

I wish you the best.

I really do.

You too.

[groans softly]



I overslept.

How come you didn't wake me?

Well, I can't blame you.

We both had a long night,
didn't we?

♪ Tense music ♪


♪ dramatic hip-hop music ♪


- Thank you.
- You're welcome.

[Emmett] Hey.

Why would you bring
your baby with you?

Tiff had to make
a few drop-offs across town,

so she couldn't keep him,
but he'll be all right.

[sighs] Oh, God.

Listen, don't fuck this up.

I'm gonna give him a juice box
before the meeting.

It's like Xanax to these kids.

It better be.

Look, relax.

Take some deep breaths.

In through your mouth,
out through your nose.

Do it with me.

[both breathe deeply]

♪ smooth music ♪


So y'all want me to evict Sonny.

Come on now.
That's coldblooded, y'all.

I was raised on his chicken.
You don't like his chicken?

Yeah, we... we love...

Look, I love Sonny like a uncle.

He's always been there
for me when I needed him,

put money in my pocket
when I was broke.

But the way he doing things
ain't working no more.

- Mm-mm.
- You going up on the rent.

Look, I don't want to,
but I don't have no choice.

We know that, and the real is
he can't afford to pay you.

But we can.

what we're trying to say is,

we're still gonna call it
Sonny's, all right?

But just for the new generation.

All she's saying is,
we the next generation.


What do you mean,
next generation?

This ain't Star Trek.

Bro, this is
a win-win situation.

All right,
you bring in somebody new,

they're not gonna
know the customers,

they're not gonna know
the neighborhood,

they're not gonna know
how shit works.

- Mm-mm.
- They ain't gonna last.

Look, but I'm from that block.

I know that kitchen
like the back of my hand.

- We doing you a favor.
- [EJ] Da-Da!

Oh, okay, that's what this is.

You brought the kid in here,

thinking you was gonna
soften me up,

and I was gonna do whatever
you wanted me to do.

I don't think so, okay?

You can't get one over on me.

I'm trying to build
a legacy for him.

I'm trying to build
a legacy for myself.

[Emmett] Look, come on, man,
the numbers don't lie.

And my food is bomb. Look.

I brought you a piece of cake.

- You made that cake?
- Mm-hmm.

Your cake does look tasty.

[clears throat]

And juicy and-and moist.

Look, look, I'm not...
I'm not gonna be distracted.

Look here, man, I...
I can't evict Sonny, okay?

I can't have that
on my conscience.

So thank you for coming.

Nice talking to you.

Take care. Thank you.

- [Emmett sighs]
- Don't forget your baby.

Get your baby.
Here's your business permit.

Thank you for coming.
I appreciate you.

- Thanks.
- [Zeke] This was nice.

[approaching footsteps]

Shit's finally hit the fan
for Camille.

I surpassed her in the polls.
You seen these numbers?

Yeah, I saw it.

And you ain't impressed?

Not really.

She ain't gonna go down
without a fight,

so I wouldn't get too
comfortable if I was you.

Who said I was comfortable?

Oh, you really feeling
yourself right now.

I'm happy your ass
finally got on top,

but you gonna have to figure
out how to stay there.

Isn't that your job?

Oh, you gonna let me
do my job now.


You still mad because I barked
at you in front of my mother?

I'm pissed that you did
that commercial

calling her crazy
without consulting me first.

It was genius.

It was messy,
and it could have backfired.

Well, it didn't.

We're supposed to be a team,

which means
that you got to trust me.

Honesty is not your strong suit.

I was fucking a bitch
for a few months.

- So what?
- She was my secretary.

I said I was sorry.

Hey, hurry up and eat.

I don't want you
to be late for school.

[sighs] I'm not hungry.

Fine, then don't eat.

Oh, but don't forget,

we got that dinner party
tomorrow night.

So I want you both there
and on your A game.

You want us to tap dance?

This dinner could make
or break my campaign.

So I want you both there,
dressed in your Sunday's best,

standing right beside me,

I ain't no prop, nigga.

Who the fuck
you think you talking to?

What you gonna do, hit me?

Do that shit then.

I'm sure it wouldn't be
the best look for you,

I'm walking around with
a black eye, now, would it?

I ain't think so.

You know she ran
before she could walk?

She would pull herself up
by a chair

and then just take off.

Whenever we were
in an open space,

she'd let go of my hand
and just go.

Like she was always
searching for freedom.

♪ Gentle music ♪


You know what?

I can't do this.

I changed my mind.

If it's too hard,
I can handle it.

I don't need you to handle it.

I don't want to pack up her shit

like she's just
gone off to school or like...

Like she's never coming back.

Babe, this is not us
giving up on Kiesha.


That's what it feels like.

I just feel like this room
is haunting you,

and it's hard to watch.

I'm not ready for this.


- Let's leave it as is.
- Yeah.

Let's just do that.

I'm not giving up hope.

I can't tell.


I knew I shouldn't
have trusted that nigga.

I could've told you that.

I can't believe
he using me like this.

Well, that's
what politicians do.

Don't you pay attention
in history class?


How you know Trig
telling the truth?

Why would my brother lie?

I don't know.

So you could go and live
with him or something.

[indistinct chatter]

[sighs] Stop staring at her.

That bitch put your business
in the streets, bro.

I'm not looking at her.

Look, she lied to you, my nig,
then tried to bribe you

with a iPad
on your birthday, fool.

Leave that bitch alone.
For real, fuck her.

Mm. Handsy.

[Jada chuckles]


Oh, hey, Ma, you home early.

Uh, we was about
to clean up right now.

I'm coming
from Miss Ethel's memorial,

and I wanted to change.

Miss Ethel died?


Y'all, this is Tomas.

Tomas, this is
my ungrateful son, Emmett,

and his equally trifling
girlfriend, Tiff.

- Don't lump me in with him.
- [EJ] Nana!

Nice to meet you,
but I ain't ungrateful.

And y'all better stop letting
EJ play with my good hair.

Maybe we can finish
what we started later.

- Yeah, I'll walk you out.
- Okay.

- [whispers indistinctly]
- I'll put EJ down.

[TV continues indistinctly]

What are you doing?

- I know. I know.
- Do you?

They're gonna be out
by the end of the month.

They look pretty comfy to me.

[sighs] Look, I realize
we're dating and all,

but I don't need you telling me
how to handle my son.

He's taking advantage of you.

I'm his crutch. I know that.

I'm not gonna let my grandbaby
sleep on the streets.

There's no way your son's
gonna be out on the street.

Yes, he will.
You don't know him.

People think they can walk all
over you because you let them.

Excuse me?

I just want you to put
yourself first sometimes.

That's all.

Y'all get on my goddamn nerves.

We said we were sorry.

Y'all stay being sorry.

You're here rent-free.

The least you could do
is clean up.

That's what I said.

Oh, you ain't innocent in this.

I know. You right, you right.

- We cleaning up now.
- Yeah.

I'll tell you what,
I'm gonna be a happy camper

when y'all get up
out my house next week.


this probably
ain't the right time...

Don't. Don't say it.

We need...

I'm gonna have to say it
at some point.

What, Emmett?

We just need to stay
just a little bit longer.

- Why?
- I lost my job.

How you do that?

It's-it's a long story.

It's always a long story.

[sighs] How much longer
y'all need to stay?

Maybe like
till the end of the year.

We sort of don't...

Negro, I am so done with you.

Now, please... girl, move.

I... I am so over
the both of y'all, every...

You done ate up
all my shit in the house.

I just... I'm done.
I'm over y'all.

Here you go, gentlemen.

- Oh.
- Good.

Look what he got, brother.
Look, look, look, look.

Nigga, you good?

Yeah, man.

I been thinking
about getting sober.


Maybe the 14th time
will be the charm.

Let's hope so.

I wanted to thank you

for coming to support me today.

Your friendship

has been my light in the dark.

You mean a lot to me.

Damn, man. Gonna make me cry.

I hope that mean
you gonna come visit us.

What do you mean?

My cousin own this warehouse
down in Springfield,

and he hiring,

so we finna move down there,
make some money.

When are you going?



You crazy.

Ain't nobody hiring up here.

Don't I know it.

Why don't you come with us, man?

Yeah, bro, we could
hook you up, G.

No, I'm working
on something here.

and benefits?

I just got something

But the principal said
you can't miss no more school.

I ain't got a choice.


It's gonna be hard
for us to see each other now.

Is there anything I can do
to help your moms?

No, no.

She'll be pissed if she
finds out I told somebody.

I'll be fine.

Just... she'll find another job,

and I'll be back.

- Just text me.

Here you go.

What do you want?

- Relax, I got good news.
- I don't care.

You not gonna let me
tell you what it is?

Look, I got a lot of shit
to do, so just spit it out.

All right, Zeke smashed
that cake after we left.

I could tell he wanted some.

All right, and he called me

and offered to pay us
seven grand

to cater some dinner party
he's hosting tonight

for some big shot.

The caterer he had
backed out last minute.


Yeah, he said your cake

had him speaking in tongues.

So how many is it gonna be?

Maybe 20.

Twenty? Is you dumb?

- It's only me.
- I can help you.

No, you can't.

I can do whatever
you need me to do.


Work fast and don't talk back.

I'm gonna do whatever you say.

You better.


Jake thinks
you killed his brother.

Why would he think that?

I don't know.

You tell me.

I ain't got to tell you shit.


No, you don't.

But what I don't know
I can't help you with.

You know what?

What I do out on those streets
is my business.

If you're running for mayor,
it becomes Chicago's business.

Many mayors before me
have done way worse.

If that little nigga find out
you killed his brother,

you might wake up
with a knife at your throat.

He ain't that bold.

What the hell are you doing?

Babe, it's time.

I told you I wasn't ready.

We're never gonna be ready
'cause we're holding out hope.

You've given up.
Is that what's going on?

Look, I just...
We can't do this forever.

I can.

Until they bring me
my baby's body,

I have faith
that she's still out there.

Every day, you come in this
room, and you sit by yourself.

Some days for hours at a time.

This is not me giving up hope.

This is me ensuring
that I don't lose you too.

I just need to feel
close to her.

I understand that, babe. I do.

But while you're in here,
I'm out there,

and Kev is out there.

- We need you too.
- Not as much as Kiesha.

It's been two months.


So why you in such
a hurry to move on?

I just think it's time for us
to start the grieving process.


Get out.

Look, this is hard for me too.

Get out of my house!

I'm not going
any-fucking-where, okay?

This is my house too.

We are a family,

and we gotta figure out
what's best for all of us.

For all of us, Dre?

Or just for you?




You can take your shit

and get out.

And you better not take none
of my stuff by mistake either.

You can take the wedding photos.

Kiesha never liked you no way.

You so eager
to pack everything up.

Get out.

Gonna miss you, man.


I don't know what I'm gonna do
without you guys.

Offer's still on the table,
change your mind.

I'll remember that.

Just got some unfinished
business I gotta take care of.

Then we'll see.

Y'all should get out of here
so you can beat the traffic.

We're good here.

Why don't you keep an eye

Be good and do as I say.

If she's too much for you,

I can always
take her off your hands.

I got it.

You sure?
I saw her staring at me.

I think you're mistaken.

If you say so.

Wish my grandfather
was alive to see this.

Me standing here with two
black mayoral candidates.

- Yeah.
- He'd be so proud.

You know, my grandfather opened
this bank over 80 years ago.

One of the first black banks
in the city.

Yeah, I was sad to hear it had
to close down a few years ago.

[Marcus] Yeah, me too.

You know those white people

weren't gonna let us
have a black bank.

Well, if more black folks
put their money in the bank,

maybe it wouldn't
have had to close down.

Now, let's not get
into an early debate.

It was nice while it lasted.

Now, look,
every mayoral election,

to honor my grandfather,
I pick one black candidate

to make a sizeable donation to.

There's also that big spread
in the Sun-Times.

There's a bunch
of endorsements out there,

but everybody knows
yours is the only one

that really matters.

[Douda] That's why we're here.

What's this?

Proof that you two
are splitting the black vote.

Now that's not possible.

I got numbers this morning
that said I'm in the lead.

You're leading
by a very slim margin.

If one of you doesn't drop out,

then the other candidate
will end up being

a non-black candidate,
and don't nobody want that.

- I'm not dropping out.
- Neither am I.

I've been thinking long and hard

about which one of you to back.

In all my history, I've never
backed the wrong candidate.

But when it came down to it,

I had to back someone
that was more like me.

When I look at myself,
I see Otis,

so my money's on him.

You know, I think we need
a strong black man

to lead this city.

I hope you can understand.


I do understand.

Y'all are trying
to Shirley Chisholm me.

Black men turned their back
on her too,

because they were intimidated
by her.

They were afraid
of what she was capable of,

but just like her, I'm gonna
rise like the phoenix,

and my legacy will never die,

because that's just
the kind of bitch I am.

Good night, gentlemen,

and good luck.

- [Dom laughs]
- All righty, hey!

That food was so damn good!

Y'all killed it!

- Hey.
- Thank you.

I didn't know black people food
could be so fancy.

Oh, we can be fancy sometimes.

Now, look, Emmett,
look, I don't want to sound

like an asshole, but I always
look at you as a fuckup.

You always fucking shit up,
but you pulled this off, man.

Ah, thank you, man.
Well, I can't take the credit.

You know, Dom is the one.

Oh, okay. Oh, you did this?

Okay, well, look,
I got some news for you.

You want us to cater
another event?

Nah, nah, nah, that's not it.

I want to let you rent out
Sonny's for a few months.

- Yes!
- Yeah, all you, brother.

Why only a few months?

'Cause I don't know
if this was a real thing

or a fluke or you got lucky.

I need to see consistency,
you know what I mean?

If you can have traffic
in and out consistently,

we'll talk long-term.

We understand.

- [Zeke] Yeah?
- Bet.

Oh, before I go. Hold on.

I got something for you.
Here you go, Miss Lady.

- Thank you.
- You earned it.

Y'all killed it.
Man, that food was so good.

You should be proud of
yourselves. You killed it!

- [Dom] Thank you.
- Black fancy people food!

Fancy lemonade.

Hope they ain't gonna have
fancy diabetes.

- All right, we gotta drink.
- For sure.

I told you I wasn't
gonna steer you wrong.

You did, you did.

Just remember,
you stick with me,

you gonna get
where you wanna be.

Oh, is that right?

Yeah, the road might be
a little bit bumpy,

but we'll get there.

[both chuckle]

- We did it.
- Thank you.

- [stammers]
- Come here.

- We're not here for that.
- Then what you want?



Girl, what I tell you about

putting my business
in the streets?

I didn't.

Then why you got this man
and his son

giving me a handout
like we homeless?

It's not a handout. It's a gift.

God's servants take care
of they own.

I can take care of myself.

- Get outta here.
- I was just trying to help.

I said what I said, Pastor.

I understand your reluctance,

but all of us
have experienced times

where we could use some help.

Now, this money
was raised for you.

We're gonna leave it here
whether you like it or not.

Hey, we need to talk.


[gunfire and explosions

I'm not the reason
your brother's dead.

He is.

When he stopped taking orders,

he put his life in jeopardy.

I had a choice.

I could either save him
and start a war

or turn my back on him
and keep the peace.

So you killed him.

I can't save everybody.

So then why you trying
to save me?

'Cause I don't want to see you
on the streets,

throwing your life away.

I see something in you.

What do you see?

I see myself.

So am I gonna be
a crook like you?


Or you could be
the mayor of Chicago.

[scoffs] You ain't won yet.

Mrs. Williams,
I wanted to give you

some brochures on trauma
and mental health resources

for your daughter.

Thank you.

Yeah, I know all about it.

I'm a counselor
at a high school.

That's great. Your skills
will really come in handy.

This is gonna be a long road.
It won't be easy.

I understand.

And my wife and I
haven't had the time

to talk about how we're gonna
handle everything just yet,

but we'll figure it out.

My biggest piece of advice:

look for warning signs
for suicide.

It's normal for someone

who's been through
what she's been through

to experience extreme
bouts of depression.

Your daughter's STD test results

will be ready in a few hours.
