What happened in last week's episode of The Equalizer?

In “Condemned,” last week's episode of The Equalizer, Dante and his father were ambushed on their way to a funeral by a group of suspicious attackers and a major family secret was revealed. Dante learned that his father had a whole other family and Dante has a half-brother. Meanwhile, at a block party celebrating 50 years of hip-hop, Aunt Vi (Lorraine Toussaint) kept her crown as Cobbler Queen. Dee (Laya DeLeon Hayes) reunited with an old friend, but then suspected the friend he brought might have been the culprit behind stolen prize money at the block party. Robyn spent time with her ex-husband, Miles (Stephen Bishop), who asked her out on a date. He was already looking to get back into her life by offering to help her with her clandestine work. Will she choose to go back to the life she knew with Miles or is she game for a new adventure with Marcus?

When Dante fails to show up for his shift at the community outreach table, a concerned Robyn goes to search for him. Her team is able to get him and his father out of a serious jam.
