While in his cell, Tariq pondered how did he let Cane get the best of him. Then Kanan appeared to help him brainstorm the situation. Riq came to the realization that Monet pulled stings using Cane to set him up! He even put the idea in his head that sometimes it’s the ones who loved him most.

At Stansfield, Lauren confronted Carrie about Tariq being arrested and that she would possibly have to testify against him. Class started and the students debated Tariq’s case… what is freedom? Is he guilty before being proven innocent?

Heads Up

He told them Tariq was out of jail. Monet asked if he helped Cane move the body and plant the badge. He confessed to the former but not the latter.

Lorenzo asked Dru about it and he spilled the beans regarding the family making Zeke their new business and going legit. Dru told his father that his parents needed to be on one accord. Lorenzo charged his son with tailing Keno so they can move on him as he advised.

Tariq listened to Effie’s advice and apologized to Brayden. He also came clean about the guy who was killed at the pool, 2-bit, who tried to kill him. He explained that Cane is the ops. When asked about Jabari, he told the truth. Brayden had his back. They formed a plan for Brayden to use Cane plus get his father’s photo album from college to payback the favor he owed to Tate.
