Chad needs to change his eating habits, things get out of hand for D-Real and the Turf Feinz at a dance battle, and Kaylin gets news from her doctor.
In these exclusive clips, Chad and Jenks give us an extended look at "The Lorenzo Show," and Jenks gets a tour of Kaylin's old bedroom.
Jenks explains that obsessive behavior is a part of Chad's autism, and that Chad's food fixation is making him gain weight. Jenks sits down with Chad's mother, Sheri, to discuss the reasons for Chad's weight gain and Sheri talks openly about her own struggles with this issue.
Soon after, Chad has a doctor's appointment, and the doctor tells him and his family that Chad has diabetes. But if Chad can adjust his diet, increase his exercise, and lose weight, it is possible that the condition will subside.
Later that evening, Chad's anxieties about his diagnosis push him to his emotional limits. To help his mood, Jenks stages a cooking show ("Cooking with Lorenzo") in Chad's kitchen as a way to encourage Chad to eat food that's better for him.
At a dance battle, a fight breaks out between Chonkie and members of a rival dance group. D-Real helps to diffuse the tension, but then gets into an altercation with a security guard and ends up threatening to shoot him.
After reviewing footage from the event, Jenks confronts D-Real and Chonkie about their behavior. After debating what was actually said, D-Real explains that growing up in Oakland has shaped him in ways that aren't easy to control. He admits that he may have begun his journey as an advocate of non-violence before he was really ready.
After their talk, Jenks understands D-Real's position more. He points out the stress D-Real has been dealing with over the loss of his brother and notes that it must take a lot of self-control to not erupt in anger when something so awful has happened to you.
Later, D-Real and the Turf Feinz go to speak at a juvenile detention center and D-Real encourages the kids there to find another path away from the violence that's destroying their lives.
As part of her continuing cancer treatment, Kaylin must return to San Francisco for a routine scan. It's always a frightening experience that could mean life-or-death news. After the scan, she takes Jenks to Sacramento, the city where she grew up, so that he can better understand her roots.
Just days away from the scan results, Kaylin and her comic book partner and former roommate, Jon, meet with a San Francisco based comic publisher, Last Gasp, to pitch their project for distribution. Kaylin would like for the completed comic to be made available free to cancer patients. Last Gasp likes the comic and agrees to work with them.
After anxiously awaiting the results of her scan, Kaylin is told she has a small lesion and a cyst. The doctors say she will have to have another scan in three months to check on these. Jenks wishes she could just have a scan that would say she's completely cancer-free and never has to worry again but that's not the reality. It is rare for a patient in Kaylin's condition to receive news that means there is nothing to worry about.
