L - Keisha and Emmett - The Chi Season 6 Episode 1

Each season of The Chi feels just like the present has reinvented itself, retaining the identical drift however with completely different strokes.

The Chi Season 6 Episode 1 caught us up with the place everybody was emotionally, economically, and naturally, romantically.

The chilly open felt like a flashback as we met Keisha and Emmett in a well-known place the place they nonetheless appreciated some morning glory motion (okay, it was extra Emmett than Keisha), however as an alternative of Jada interrupting them, their selections did.

The main target of the hour was Emmett, Douda, and their new partnership, which everybody who realized about it knew it was a foul concept.

A metropolis grows and adjustments in two methods.

Emmett on snow - The Chi Season 6 Episode 1

One is when or if there is a growth in immigration, it will get pumped with new concepts and cash.

The opposite means is when the kids develop up. And the kids we met on The Chi Season 1 had been grown up.

“New Chi City” didn’t maintain again in setting the scene for the remainder of the season, introducing each character and their present curiosity.

First, we had Emmett, whose life was intertwined with Keisha and Tiff’s.

Emmett - The Chi Season 6 Episode 1

Emmett has all the time been a hustler with a drive hardly ever seen in males his age. Emmett can be useless or in a gang if he determined to be what everybody wished him to be.

And for a lengthy time, man, we ain’t know how that boy was gonna flip out.


However, no. He scraped, hustled, bled, sweat, and cried till he obtained to the place he was. That’s some drive that must be revered.

Nevertheless, that sort of ambition can blind somebody. Like most individuals, he needs extra. He would possibly even want extra. And that was what Douda promised.

Douda was on a mission to embed himself into the subsequent Chicago era. The outdated guard was slowly exiting, and new blood shortly occupied that area.

Emmett had his restaurant, and Douda discovered a means into it. Who’s prepared to guess he isn’t within the menu however the cowl a legit enterprise will give him?

Subsequent, Rob’s weed enterprise was booming.

Weed ain’t actually goin’ out of type.


He additionally wished a bit of that, however my man Rob did not disappoint. He noticed Douda for who he was and handled him simply as he deserved.

Even for guys like Bakari, Douda had discovered some use for, and after cleansing him up nicely, he may go for safety.

Again to Emmett, seeing that ambition had not blinded him was encouraging. There have been moments in his interactions with Douda the place his conscience would warn him that what was occurring was not regular.

Douda - The Chi Season 6 Episode 1

Who shoots a person for chewing too loudly and carries on like they simply hugged him?

This season, Emmett’s true check won’t be whether or not he orgasms as a lot as he’d wish to or hold his child mamas blissful. Will probably be getting himself from below Douda.

Douda knew simply the place to dig his fangs into. He preyed on Emmett’s weak spot for flashy stuff (dearer than sneakers) and retaining ladies blissful.

Romantically, Emmett was with Keisha, however he’ll all the time be related to Tiff and the remainder of his children’ moms.

Tiff - The Chi Season 6 Episode 1

They are going to all the time be the moms to his children, however Emmett had by no means outlined the bounds of that relationship — particularly with Tiff.

She mentioned she wished a automotive, so he purchased her a automotive. The query is, why?

He was not her assist system anymore. She was a grown lady together with her enterprise and had Rob.

If Emmett was to cross the undrawn traces to purchase her one thing, it needs to be if that factor would profit his child immediately. His child could not drive the automotive.

In fact, Tiff having a automotive impacts the child’s life, however that was not how he ought to have approached that.

Rob - The Chi Season 6 Episode 1

If he’d talked to Keisha, she would have informed him to conform to pay half the value and select a automotive at Tiff’s stage.

He purchased her a automotive, just for Tiff to show it right into a intercourse dungeon with Rob. That has obtained to harm!

Keisha was shifting up on this planet after getting her first job as a trainer.

The town’s schooling system wanted folks like Keisha — new blood with new concepts.

Darnell - The Chi Season 6 Episode 1

Kevin moved out of his mother and father’ home.

Each younger man goals of shifting out of their mother and father’ home to achieve independence and freedom. Some get it after they transfer to varsity, and others bolt out as quickly as they’re legally allowed. Kevin was the latter.

However as somebody finds out, it is not what it is cracked as much as be.

Actuality dawns in regards to the duties concerned in operating a home. Youngsters do not discover this stuff as a result of they take them without any consideration, as mother or dad all the time has it coated.

Jake and Jemma - The Chi Season 6 Episode 1

Kevin skilled the very first thing as quickly as he obtained into the place. Fairly.

The quiet is sweet for some time earlier than loneliness creeps in.

Easy issues like stocking the fridge change into a chore so as to add to their itinerary, or danger ravenous.

He had not even gotten to the when the cash downside grew to become an actual downside.

I’ve heard gaming and streaming pay nicely, so I hope he doesn’t need to cope with cash points.

Bakari - The Chi Season 6 Episode 1

Left with an empty home, Dre and Nina may host their get-together with the women with some quiet, and issues got here up.

I all the time thought it was irresponsible of Jada to marry Darnell, understanding him that nicely, and it started to indicate.

He was already looking for the subsequent journey a couple of months into the wedding. Marriage will not be one huge journey. Like life, it is a collection of small adventures; for them to imply something, one should stick out the boring elements.

I see a divorce coming, and I am positive it’s going to devastate Jada, nevertheless it was coming.

Tracy’s lack of her son won’t ever utterly heal, however she was getting there. She was considering of affection. She craved it.

The issue was she cherished a very dangerous man.

She felt like she wanted extra, and he could not give it.

A relationship is a relationship that has to be earned! Not to compromise for.

Dre and Nina had been by some tough occasions, however they had been blissful at the moment.

Papa - The Chi Season 6 Episode 1

That get-together was filled with knowledge, and it was very entertaining. Now, that’s what Papa’s Pulpit ought to have been.

Our previous is all the time in our current.


Talking of Papa, he had his eyes on somebody.

However his friendship with Bakari was essentially the most attention-grabbing. Did he know Bakari was a mobster?

If he does, what’s going to he do? Realizing Papa, he’ll attempt some pacified method.

The youngsters weren’t so kid-like anymore.

Jake - The Chi Season 6 Episode 1

Actual-life issues had knocked. Kevin was adulting for the primary time; Jemma and Jake had been operating their hustle, and Papa was managing the restaurant.

We did not be taught a lot about what the season holds for them, however I suppose it will be some relationship drama amid the pure drift between childhood buddies as they develop up.

Victor was elected to the Metropolis Council.

After his admission, it was stunning that folks would elect him. Relationship a transwoman was by no means going to do him any favors. However possibly most individuals have outgrown transphobia, and I hope that is the case.

Victor Season 6 Episode 1

However folks haven’t and would possibly by no means outgrow staged moments for social media, and a thirst lure will all the time be a thirst lure.

Shaad had formally moved in with Deja, nevertheless it was not as enjoyable as he’d have thought.

Relationships, irrespective of in the event that they’re between opposite-sex or same-sex {couples}, are constructed on steadiness.

Society has been shaping that steadiness for opposite-sex {couples} by utilizing instruments like gender roles and double requirements, which damage folks in the long term.

Vic - The Chi Season 6 Episode 1

Shaad had been in jail for a very long time, and when males his age had been studying the memo that gender roles are silly, he did not. It was solely pure he’d really feel emasculated by his present scenario.

However as an alternative of counting how he was unfortunate, he ought to have counted his luck.

Properly, you have been locked away  most of your life. I imply, you cannot evaluate your journey to anybody else.


He was faring higher in society than he was a yr in the past. He had an ideal beautiful lady who went in opposition to her household for him.

So, what if she calls her home her home? She’d been doing that earlier than he moved in; it will take time to alter that behavior.

However watching Satan Wears Prada? Possibly I would draw a line there.
