Ronnie barges into the police station, and bursts into the interrogation room where Jamal is being held. His lawyer is in there with him, and they have a quick exchange in legalese which, as per usual, I will render in layman's terms because this is, after all, a show. About. TEACHERS. Jamal's lawyer is all, "You no can enter cave of questioning." Ronnie's all, "I ask him question about bad thing that happen while he in here, so we no think he did this bad thing, and so he must answer to my tribunal of one." Jamal's lawyer tries to strike a deal, but Ronnie grabs him and throws him out of the room. That sounds like something I might make up to be funny, but it's also actually what she does in this case. She points out Harry's blood all over her shirt, and gets in Jamal's face: "You owe Harry Senate, Jamal. Your brother just stabbed him. Now where is he?" Jamal wants to know if Harry's okay, and Ronnie tells him Harry might die. Jamal thinks, then says his brother's probably staying with a friend named Wilson Cooper.
The next day. Boston's spring sun belies the gravity of the day. And whatnot.
Scott enters a classroom full of teachers. No, really -- full of teachers, because they got a bunch of extras to play the rest of the teachers at Winslow High. He says, "Uh. First. Harry Senate remains in critical condition. It's a good sign that he survived the night, but doctors won't say they're optimistic. Harry has type O-negative blood, which there is a shortage of. We are setting up a volunteer blood bank in the infirmary; anyone wanting to be tested and contribute may, of course, do so. Second, rather than calling an assembly, we'd rather you give out the information during first period. You may devote as much time as you feel is needed. Mr. Senate is a very popular teacher, as you know, and this will hit the students very hard. Bob Lick will be available all day. If you see any of your students particularly struggling, please encourage them to see Mr. Lick. Louisa Finn will be in constant communication with the hospital; you can check in with her as the day progresses." In the crowd, Louisa nods, eager to provide everyone with exposition for a change. Scott concludes, "I'd like to meet here again at five o'clock for a status report. Your attendance is required. Lastly, I would ask that you all pray for Harry Senate. He, uh. He needs God's attention today."
