In the latest episode of season six of “The Chi”, a time jump takes us to prom season for the series’ young characters. The episode, titled “One Of Them Nights”, sees Kevin & Maisha, Jake & Jemma, Papa & Kenya, and Bakari & Lynae preparing for prom, each with their own set of concerns and disruptions. Keisha takes control of her life as her frustration grows, while new tensions arise between Emmett and Douda. Victor is questioned by the FBI, Shaad is reluctantly drawn back into his old lifestyle, and Marcus and Tierra face their first major disappointment.
