Lincoln Heights - Season 2 - Episode 7

If pain is too depp and hatred too wide, can peace ever come to Lincoln Heights? Eddie Sutton thinks it can -- if he can just peel kids away from the gangs one by one and get them off the streets. But can Eddie's good intentions outweigh gang loyalty? Is there ever a way out? Maybe not, when feelings are hard, and hurt is left to fester. That's a lesson Cassie is learning as she watches Sage go after Charles. Seeing them together is killing her, but all Cassie ever shows him is her anger. But anger won't win Charles back, and it won't help anyone out on the streets either.
