In the sixth episode of season six of “The Chi”, the south side Chicago kids are preparing for graduation and making significant life decisions.

Bakari reconnects with his sister, and Papa finds joy in a new surprise in his relationship with Kenya. However, not everything is going smoothly in Chicago.
