That's how I remember it, but the neighbor cop is now living in the house that Steve bought, house sitting till Steve comes back.1. Wasn't Steve forced to leave town, I think by the neighbor cop who was going to turn him in for stealing cars unless he left town. If so, why is he back? Isn't he risking going to jail?
Maybe Steve left town because of something else illegal he had going on.
One of the neighborhood ladies who killed her abusive husband and is now in jail. Most likely Pot Luck as neighborhood barbecues tend to be.2. What was the barbeque for and where was it held. Who paid for the food? And why was the lady detective there?
I assume the lady cop was part of the case, felt sorry for the wife, but had to put her away because killing is "bad".
He was one of the kids of the bbq honoree, used to be abused by the now dead husband/father.3. Who was the guy Lip bumped into and why did Lip goad him into fighting. Is Lip self-destructive and wanted to get some pain because things were not going his way.
Absolutely why Lip picked the fight with him.
