At Jimmy's funeral Aunt Billy reminds Black Dynamite he promised his mother on her death bed that he would look after Jimmy.

O'Leary and two other men break into Black Dynamite's house, but Black Dynamite gets the drop on them. O'Leary asks Black Dynamite to come back to the CIA to help fight corruption and the drug epidemic.

Black Dynamite goes to Jerry's Fine Food/Flying Fox. Afroditey and her band the Moonchild are playing and Black Dynamite flirts with Afroditey. He goes to talk to Bullhorn in his office in the club. Bullhorn tells Black Dynamite he saw Jimmy come into the club with two mean guys and Cream Corn. Cream Corn is getting his nails done at the Ivory Coast Hair Salon when Black Dynamite shows up. Cream Corn starts running when he sees Black Dynamite. Black Dynamite catches Cream Corn and forces him to tell him the names of the guys Jimmy was with. Cream Corn tells him the leader of the thugs is Chicago Wind and he owns the pool hall called the Hip Pocket in Crenshaw. Black Dynamite goes to the Hip Pocket and tries to ask Chicago Wind some questions, but Chicago Wind and his thugs insult Black Dynamite and his brother Jimmy. Black Dynamite locks the door of the pool hall and starts beating up Chicago Wind's men. A goon pulls a gun on Black Dynamite while Chicago Wind runs away.

At the militants office, Black Dynamite shows Saheed the bullet casing found at Jimmy's murder scene. Saheed finds the round in a book and tells him it is strictly govt. issue. Black Dynamite goes to O'Leary's office and O'Leary admits Jimmy was working for the CIA undercover. Jimmy thought Congressman James was working with crime king pin Vincent Rafelli on something and went to investigate.

He drops Gloria off at Honeybee's so she will be safe. He then goes to a pimp meeting and tells them if he catches them selling drugs he will take them out.
