Storyline

The ensuing negative attention turns Royce against Burrell, who takes the heat while Rawls comes to the rescue. At school, Prez's reward/punishment program meets with mixed results, and Colvin looks to restore order by separating disruptive "corner" kids from more attentive "stoop" ones. Chris tries to enlist Michael into Marlo's ranks, spooking Randy along the way. Dukie debunks Randy's "special dead" theory. Written by WyattJones

State Delegate Odell Watkins: What'd you expect?
Mayor Clarence V. Royce: Not that, huh-uh. Hey, I had nothing to do with that nonsense.

Mayor Clarence V. Royce: I didn't mean...
