The theme for episode four of Chicagoland seems to be Mentoring. Mayor Rahm Emanuel mentoring a young man playing basketball. The young man ends up an intern in the Mayor’s office.
Fenger High School Principal Elizabeth Dozier isn’t so lucky with the young man she’s trying to mentor. He keeps heading back to the Cook County Jail, like a homing pigeon, with a target. In this episode, you’re given enough back story about Ms. Dozier to understand who she is, and why she is the way she is. Her mother was a nun, met Ms. Dozier’s father in the jail, where she was a teacher. She left the convent and married him. I will let you, my readers draw conclusions from there.
