'The Chi' Season 3 Episode 7: Keisha finally gets rescued, fans say the storyline took 'freaking forever'
Spoilers for 'The Chi' Season 3 Episode 7 'A Stain'
It's been a really long time coming but Showtime's coming of age drama, 'The Chi', has finally resolved one of the longest storylines of Season 3. Fans have been desperately clamoring for Keisha (Birgundi Baker) to get rescued from her kidnapper, Omari (Cedric Mays), for quite some time now and Episode 7, 'A Stain', finally delivered. In Episode 7, Ronnie (Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine) runs into Jada (Yolonda Ross) who inspires him to get sober and that motivates him to look harder for Keisha. His investigation leads him to Omari's house and he manages to rescue the young girl after a fight with the kidnapper.
Social media is exploding with celebrations as fans finally breathe a sigh of relief after the emotional turmoil of Keisha's kidnapping, which has eaten up most of the season. Here's what they've been saying over on Twitter.
"They found Keisha! #TheChi," one fan tweeted. "Once again Keisha didn’t run!!!! BUT thank goodness she beat that taillll #TheChi," another fan wrote.

Yet another fan commented on the above tweet writing, "Lol. Yeah, we were yelling at the TV like run!!" Some fans have even taken the opportunity to make jibes at the police for not finding Keisha before. One fan in particular has claimed that the police didn't get involved because they don't care about black girls.

"@SHOTheChi Yo! Why Ronnie rusty a** ain't get the police to back him up before he rescued Keisha? Oh wait, this is the police in America, they don't care abt black folks, especially black girls. Never mind. #TheChi," they quipped.
All jokes and social commentary aside, the fans are honestly just glad that Ronnie persevered and eventually found Keisha, despite the extremely long time that the writers spent building up the storyline. "@SHOTheChi yes! It felt like freaking forever and yells writers prolonged the hell outta the storyline but Keisha finally comes home! I can got to sleep happy tonight. #TheChi," the same fan declared.
"I'm so glad Ronnie never gave up hope on finding Keisha 🥺 #TheChi," one emotional fan wrote.
