The Chi Season 2 Episode 10 will be the show's final bow, so fans can expect to see a lot of twists and turns and a major cliffhanger at the end of series. The show is being surrounded by controversies with the departure of Jason Mitchell, who plays Brandon Johnson's role, and "The Scorpion and the Frog" might be the last time fans would see him in the series.
"Brandon is faced with a life-altering decision; Emmett (Jacob Latimore) takes a step toward adulthood," The Chi Season 2 Episode 10 official synopsis read. "Kevin (Alex R. Hibbert) tries out a new look; a trip down south leads Ronnie (Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine) to confront his demons; detectives Toussaint (Crystal Anne Dickinson) and Cruz (Armando Riesco) make a big arrest."
From the looks of it, a lot is about to happen in The Chi Season 2 Episode 10. The season finale is expected to delve into Mitchell's exit after his controversial dismissal not just from the show but from his other endeavors as well.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, The Chi Season 2 showrunner Ayanna Floyd revealed Mitchell's inappropriate behavior was the reason for his departure. In Season 1, the 32-year-old's unruly behavior was already displayed. The show's creator, Lena Waithe, was even aware of the allegations thrown at the Straight Outta Compton star that had a connection with his co-star Tiffany Boone.
Floyd revealed she took proper HR measures to solve the problem, but to no avail. She went on to say Waithe was the one who informed her of the issue between Mitchell and Boone, and the latter was already thinking of leaving the show because of it.
So, Floyd talked about Boone's complaints with the HR department and set up an HR presentation for everyone. Here, she learned everybody knew Mitchell's behavior and his multiple HR cases with Waithe and another executive producer.
After trying to correct Mitchell's behavior, Floyd revealed she became the target of his "rage and inappropriateness." Hence, he ended up leaving the show, and he would not be seen in The Chi Season 3.
Fans have to wait and see how does Mitchell's exit will be played out in The Chi Season 2 Episode 10. "The Scorpion and the Frog" will be out on Sunday, June 16, on Showtime.
