When Will got shot on Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
Episode: “Bullets Over Bel-Air”
When we first saw this episode, we were straight-up terrified. As Will and Carlton try to make an ATM transaction during a night out, they come face-to-face with a robber who has a gun. Will ends up taking a bullet for Carlton that night, which lands him in the hospital. This traumatizes Carlton and the whole family is worried, but a seemingly easy-going Will constantly cracks jokes from his hospital bed to lighten the mood. This, however, doesn’t work on Carlton because he’s terrified over what could’ve happened.
Feeling that he can no longer rely on the justice system, Carlton decides to invest in a gun and even shows it to Will. But then, an emotional Will pleads with Carlton to hand over the revolver, saying “I saved your life. You owe me!” After Carlton gives up the weapon, Will sheds tears as he removes the bullets. And yes, we cried too.
