'The Chi' Season 3 Episode 4 Preview: Lena Waithe's Camille Hallaway is the latest entrant to the mayoral race
Luke James, La La Anthony, and now it is time for the stellar Lena Waithe to enter 'The Chi' Season 3 as mayoral candidate, Camille Hallaway. The Emmy-winner has written for a handful of famed and critically acclaimed TV series and films that include 'Master of None'. In addition, she’s also starred in 'Ready Player One' and 'Westworld.' Her multi-episode arc in 'The Chi' will add more zing to the series that's heating up with by the episode.
The three episodes have revolved around the mysterious disappearance of Kiesha Williams (Birgundi Baker) and each character is seen trying to assist in assisting the Willams family. The episode also highlights the plight where Black people and communities have accepted the fact that they are not going to be helped by anyone other than their own. This statement comes as a resounding slap, but sadly, almost everyone knows that this is the truth and that's one part of the storyline for the Williams family.
The upcoming episode though has a bunch of storylines it looks at. The official synopsis of the episode titled 'Gangway' reads: "Ronnie finds a new calling in his bid for redemption. Emmett lets his dad Darnell (Rolando Boyce) and his insecurities get the best of him. Kevin is weighed down by a lie. The mayoral race heats up when candidates Douda (Curtiss Cook) and Camille Halloway face-off (Lena Waithe)".
One of the plots is about Ronnie (Ntare Mwine) who might be instrumental in finding out about Kiesha. While much isn't told about Douda and Halloway, that plot might be pivotal over the next few episodes. Kevin (Alex V Hibbert) and Jemma (Judae’a Brown) seem to have some of the bonds that are being built. Jemma is introduced as brilliant, absolutely mature and level-headed. In addition, there is also a hint she has the hots for Kevin.
Two things that make the episode a must-watch: Kevin throwing a punch and Hallaway declaring: "We're all in this together, this is our city." What are your thoughts on the events that may unfold in 'Gangway'?
'The Chi' Season 3 airs on Sundays at 9 pm ET on Showtime.
