Kiesha’s journey on Showtime’s The Chi has been quite the adventure. She had been looking forward to attending college on a full athletic scholarship in previous seasons, but that all changed when she was kidnapped by Omari. She’s now a completely different person, still suffering from the effects of captivity and sexual violence. Not only that, but after being raped, Kiesha became pregnant. Kiesha decided that instead of having an abortion, she should place her baby for adoption. But now she is remorseful. She confesses to her mother, Nina, in The Chi Season 4 Episode 6, that she wants her baby back — and showrunner Justin Hillian says she really means it.
