Raising Kanan Season 1 Synopsis
In Season 1 of Raising Kanan, a smart and ambitious teen named Kanan Stark comes of age and wants to join his family’s drug business. His mother, Raq, is a very smart person who is in charge of everything. Marvin and Lou Lou, who are his uncles, are her muscle and right-hand man. His cousin Jukebox helps him see things as they really are.
In the dope game, Kanan’s desire to run before he can crawl caused him to make some big mistakes that Raquel had to fix.
First, he and a D-Wiz killed Buck Twenty over corners he thought were taken, but Raquel had given up to Niq. Raq had to kill the friend to throw Kanan off the trail and make it look like the friend killed Buck Twenty.
Kanan was also to blame for the bad batch of drugs that got out on the streets and killed some of his friends and Nicole, who was dating Jukebox.
Raq had some losses, but the wins she had made up for them. See, she lost her drug connection to Niq in the end, but she got a new one. She went from throwing and fighting on corners to giving out things from a building. Det. Howard, who found out that Kanan was his son, was the biggest threat to her. He wanted to meet him as his father, and he also needed the boy’s DNA to stop cancer from killing him.
Between Marvin and Lou Lou, things got worse. Raq asked Lou to kill Marvin, but Niq stopped that from happening by bombing Lou’s place. Marvin was on his way to Lou, so he was able to save his brother.
In the last episode of the season, Raq came up with a plan for Kanan to kill Howard and blame it on Niq. That plan didn’t work out because Kanan only shot the cop and didn’t kill him. Det. Howard was shot, but he lived! Unique and Marvin were both arrested, but for different reasons. Raq had to rely on Symphony to get Kanan out of town because Lou Lou was no longer a soldier. He took the young man to Maryland…
