The Chi Season 5 Speculation: What’s it going to be about?
As far as we know, Douda fled the Chi in the last episode of season 4. Is Douda really going to leave? It seems unlikely. Are we really thinking that he will simply leave and not try to get rid of Trig? Are we really thinking that he will simply leave and not try to get rid of Marcus?
Rosalyn is now at the Mayor’s desk. What will she do in Douda’s absence? As Marcus awakens from his coma, will he reveal the truth about the Mayor? Considering that he is a key witness, will he be silenced?
Kevin’s family will now take care of Lynae. They are in love. Well, he likes her a lot. However, will this convenient relationship lead to youth sex or even pregnancy? And as far as Tiffany’s concerned. She’s certainly for the streets! Interestingly, she told Emmett she didn’t want an open relationship and that she would commit to him.
Meanwhile, she will be dipping out with one of her edibles clients, Rob. After being exposed to so many men, she wants more. How long until she gets caught? Is Emmett going to leave her completely once he discovers the truth? Well, we’re going to find the answer to these burning questions along with so much more in the upcoming season of the Chi.

Tiffany still hasn’t decided between Emmett and Dante in the fourth season, so she decides to go on without him. While Tiffany initially chooses Emmett, she later meets Rob and kisses him.
Trig obtains video evidence that shows Douda striking Marcus in order to convince him to leave town. While he is on vacation, Roselyn seems to be acting as temporary Mayor. The fourth season also marks the formalization of Christian and Keisha’s relationship.
So, we expect that Season 5 will bring many surprises for us. Moreover, the upcoming season may feature Douda and Trig. Tiffany and Rob’s relationship will make Emmett’s life difficult in the near future.
