Storyline

In the season finale, racial tensions begin to flare in North Philly sparking a massive riot, while an oblivious Meg makes final preparations for her sweet sixteen birthday party. Unaware of the violent situation building around her, Meg attempts to save her friendship with Sam, visiting him at the new store, and finds herself in the middle of the urban chaos. Elsewhere, an angry Nathan who helped incite the violence, urges the enraged rioters forward, while Pete and the rest of Philadelphia's finest race to quell the disturbance. Meanwhile, a defeated J.J. returns from Lehigh University after being kicked off the football team and makes a surprising announcement to Jack and Helen about his future. Written by GusF
