While Sam, Matt, and the kids are adjusting their life views and struggling with personal decisions, Stilo our resident drug king pin and his cohort Raven each have their own approach to merchandise distribution—differences that lead to disagreement and that test their loyalty to each other. Whatever their stance on distribution, they wouldn't have a place in the story, except, because Sam is most always in the wrong place at the wrong time, she inadvertently enables the kids to meet Stilo and Raven.
Stilo is emotionally stunted and Raven, although physically available, is emotionally aloof—she knows what she wants and although mildly regretful, she doesn't waste time angst-ing over Stilo's inability to connect meaningfully with others. Despite that Stilo thinks the trait makes him stronger, Raven realizes that it doesn't make him a leader who can depend on or trust his minions.
"Queen" tells the story of two groups of people: each on their own journey whose paths overlap causing despair and failure on both sides, while opening opportunities for deeper understanding and personal growth for those who are willing to learn.
