Jamal chooses to perform a song that includes lyrics about the Orlando tragedy and Black Lives Matter.
Meanwhile, Hakeem showed up at Tiana's home and tried to get her back. It is a challenge and something that he's dealing with.

So, does that mean that Doubleday is still a series regular, or will she just appear every now-and-then in hallucinations or flashbacks? By making Lucious Lyon back into the Lucious Lyon of old, and that is also something that the series seems to be doing. Or is it just understood that there was a fight and no one is at fault?
