Lincoln Heights aims high
Lincoln Heights is the best!!! The third season of the ABC Family Channel's "Lincoln Heights," is one powerful night of TV, but viewers have come to expect that from the series about an African American cop and his family who move back into the old neighborhood and rehabilitate a former crack house.
In the season opener, Eddie and Jenn Sutton (Russell Hornsby and Nikki Micheaux) are getting away from it all at the beach while their kids are staying with friends. But, as Jenn reminds Eddie, when is the last time the kids hung around to do homework on a Sunday morning? Younger daughter Lizzie (Rhyon Brown) is playing basketball, son Tay (Mishon Ratliff) is looking to reformed thug Ruben (Darrin Dewitt Henson) for help with his music, and elder daughter Cassie (Erica Hubbard) and her boyfriend, Charles (Robert Adamson), sneak back into the Sutton house for a little cuddle time.
When a gang breaks into the house, the idyllic Sunday morning is thrown into chaos. Cassie and Charles find their lives in danger as they try to hide from the gang, which is led by a young woman who'd grown up in the house and is hoping to find her grandmother's "legacy," a key to understanding how her life could have gone so wrong. It all leads to an emotional wallop of a conclusion.
