Situations that have been simmering during the second season boil over in the finale into stories of rage, ranging from simple outbursts to cold-blooded violence.

James, who has been overcome with guilt for attacking an innocent Taliek (Vicellous Shannon), decides to confess and make restitution. He's advised not to by Nick, who has his own problems. The idea of being separated from Lulu if she takes the job in California leaves the normally articulate counselor unable to express himself. His frustration erupts in a courtroom outburst that prompts the judge to order him into anger-management sessions. Meanwhile, Shannon's father (Courtney Gains) shows up and wants custody of his daughter.
