Summertime’s in full swing for us, but we’re diving into winter in the Showtime’s “The Chi” and it’s back for its sixth season. This premiere episode, like most season openers, is giving us a crash course on our beloved characters. And let me tell you, “The Chi” is one of the best ensemble shows out there right now.

Old Storylines:

Let’s kick things off with some familiar themes we’ve seen before. First, there’s Kevin and Myesha versus Jake and Gemma. Yep, that’s right, Kevin and Myesha are circling back. Remember, Kevin was her first love, and it’s interesting to see them older, wiser, with more life experiences under their belts. But seeing Kevin and Myesha kiss again gives me deja vu, reminding me of the messiness that went down with Jake and Gemma. Are we going back down that road? I mean, it’s been done before, and I hope it doesn’t lead us down the same drama-filled path.

Then there’s Emmett, Mr. Hustle and Bustle himself. Now, he’s caught up in Douda’s world of investments, and I can’t help but draw parallels to when Douda invested in Brandon. Emmett’s story is becoming what Brandon’s was supposed to be, and that’s intriguing. Emmett’s growth from being all about sneakers to holding down a family is impressive, but his obsession with Douda makes me side-eye him a bit. Is he losing himself to the charm of the octopus-like Douda?

And speaking of relationships, we’ve got Keisha becoming a teacher. It’s amazing to see her emerge as a strong leader, unafraid to voice her opinions and stand up for herself. Her evolution from trauma survivor to empowered teacher is something I’m excited to explore further.

New Storylines:

Now, let’s talk about some fresh storylines that have me hooked. Papa and the older woman – oh, the irony of her being just two years older. But their dynamic is intriguing. She’s mature, emotionally intelligent, and intentionally holding back due to their age difference. It’s a twist on the older guy, younger girl dynamic we often see. Plus, it’s entertaining to watch Papa navigate a potential more grown-up relationship.

Rob, the low-key guy, is now working with Douda. This sets up a rivalry between them that’s so subtle yet intense. Their power struggle will be fascinating to see once we see Rob step into a new gear and demand more.

Keisha’s growth is palpable as she finds her voice, advocates for herself within her budding family, and pursues her dream of becoming a teacher. It’s inspiring to witness her transformation and how she navigates a blended family dynamic.

Question Marks:

Of course, with every exciting development, there are lingering questions. Why did Kevin move out? It seems like a rash decision, and I’m not sure if he’s ready to be on his own. Also, what crimes does Douda not commit? His ever-expanding criminal endeavors are raising eyebrows.

Bakari’s balancing act between street life and his relationship with Tiffany is intriguing. He’s a kid caught between two worlds, and I’m curious to see where this dichotomy takes him.

And what’s up with Tracy? Her inability to move on from Duda is baffling, especially given his history of lies. Her inner conflict is something I’m curious to explore further.

In Conclusion:

So, there you have it, folks. This premiere episode of “The Chi” has us revisiting some old storylines while introducing new ones that promise drama, growth, and complexity. As the characters navigate their relationships, careers, and personal development, it’s clear that we’re in for another rollercoaster of emotions and revelations.

All in all, this episode sets the stage for what’s to come in the sixth season of “The Chi,” and I’m excited to see how these storylines unfold and intersect. Stay tuned, and as always, hit that like button and share your thoughts in the comments below.
