"Everything that we've platformed and set up through the first half of the season comes to a head in this finale," Schneider says.The OneChicago franchise is known for leaving it all out on the field when it comes to midseason closers and this episode is no different."We've maintained that tradition," Schneider says with a laugh. "It's a Christmas full of surprises." headtopics.com

Accused of lying to police, Smollett takes the stand | AP NewsCHICAGO (AP) — Jussie Smollett took the witness stand Monday at his trial on charges of staging a racist, anti-gay attack on himself and lying to Chicago police about it. I hope he gets at least 1 year behind bars. Say what you want about his politics, acting wise, he is a double threat: race and homophobe baiter. I’m sure he’ll put on a heartfelt performance and make sincere eye contact with each marginalized POC in the jury. My only prayer is that the judge won’t lunge at him. ✊🏿BLM✊🏽 AlexWhittler 🤣🤣
