After the shooting, Mary and Dr. Hall scramble to help their friends and loved ones. The luncheonette owner learns the .45 Mr. Kim possessed was a record, not a weapon, but both are aghast to notice her own wound from a stray bullet. Meanwhile, Tess returns to Russell and tells him Josh needs his family. The Greenes arrive and are horrified to discover he had been shot. When the surgery is over, the doctor reports the teenager will recover, though he has been blinded. Calvin and Chanice, however, receive devastating news: their grandmother has died. Russell is astounded to learn that Anderson – a former adversary from this time in the Navy – is the one who saved Josh. Serena rails at Michael, blaming for the tragic events.

Anderson, likewise inspired by Russell to regain his passion, gives a rousing eulogy at Mary’s funeral, urging the community to take a stand against gang violence. Her sight restored, Monica, along with Tess and Andrew observe as the humans work together to paint the graffiti-covered wall.
