Was I the only one calling Angela a dumb and the b word at the end of this episode. Man, didn't the prosecution throw a good curve ball this time? I really didn't see that one coming. The real questions now are can this attorney put his feelings aside and truly represent Ghost? Can Ghost trust him? Is Tony Tommy's father? And what will Angela do now? Let's talk Power!!
I am going to keep saying this, this is the best season of Power. The plots thicken with every episode and all you want to know is how Ghost going to get free? This episode open with Ghost working out in the gym and Tommy sleeping on Tarsha couch. Ghost asked him to take care of his family, so I guess Tommy and Tarsha will be spending more time together. How will Keisha feel about that? Saks blames Angela for Proctor getting the upper hand on the prosecution. Saks, Mike and John all agreed they want Ghost to get the death penalty for Greg's murder. And little miss dumb dumb Angela agrees that they are all in this together. Ain't that some bs but you love this man. Really Angela! My problem with is this, in the beginning she didn't know James was Ghost. Then she found out James was Ghost and she stayed with him. Regardless of the lies he told, she was a Fed dating a former criminal (in her eyes). Now because Greg get killed and Ghost leaves you, you want him executed. Man, I'd that's how you love then I will pass. Especially when you knew what you was dealing with. But maybe she didn't know Ghost after all.
Proctor asked Ghost about Andre and Julio. Ghost find out they was picked up for questioning. Ghost explains he just helped them get out the hood. That's partly true. As Proctor and his little helper attorney tried to destroy the evidence of the prosecution, they ask Ghost about the gun found in his office. If Ghost is tied to the gun, he gets the death penalty. The little helper attorney thinks Ghost is guilty. So of course his sarcasm his a nerves with Ghost. Ghost shows off his temper. The little helper said, " the angry black man". Basically Ghost has to stay in line no matter what happens. He can't let his anger get the best of him; definitely not in court.
Ghost has some tasks for Proctor to handle. He tried to get the Correctional Officer played by Charlie Murphy off his back. He trying to get dirt in Tony to stop that $20,000 payment a week. Ghost only trust Proctor. He definitely don't trust the little helper. Cristabal dropped off his payment. He tells Julio about what happened to his soldier. Cristabal makes it clear to Julio that Tommy doesn't respect him. Proctor meets up with Tommy. He tells him about his meeting he had with Ghost. What is going on with these murders Ghost asked Proctor to look into? Apparently, Ghost and Tommy know about all these names and murder. Tommy agrees to drop the money off to the address Tony gave Ghost.
Angela and Tarsha meet up. Tarsha makes it clear she's not doing anything to help her. Angela is trying to play that woman power to get to Tarsha. I love Tarsha didn't sweat her shenanigans. Tarsha makes it clear to Angela she is working her nerve. Angela tells Tarsha about the deal she offered. Tarsha facial expression was priceless. She saw right past Angela's fake sisterhood bond.
Julio talks to Tommy about his respect being under mined. Tommy makes it clear that Julio problem s isn't his problem and if they are his problem then he is his problem. Dre is playing everyone at this point. He see an opportunity for his come up so he plant a seed in Tommy's head. He got Tommy questioning Julio about how long he was in with the Feds. On top of that, Dre didn't show up to make his payment from the club. Dre is playing basketball dangerous game. Sadly, you can't be a punk playing with the big boys. Dre has heart but not enough heart to not be afraid of Kanan, Tommy and Ghost. How is this going to turn out for Dre? Just think about it, Kanan killed his own son. Ghost killed one of his loyal and good friends. Tommy killed his woman and unborn child. Dre don't stand a chance if his tug of war back fires on him.
Keisha shows up at Tarsha place. She is shocked to hear Tommy stand there last night. She fish for information but Tarsha don't want Tommy. But, Keisha feels Tarsha take everything she have anyway. Tarsha tells Keisha about the deal Ghost turned down to save her and the kids. Tarsha don't want to believe Ghost would do that. Keisha give her friend the best advice she knows, "to save herself".
Julio goes see Dre. He pick up Dre's payment. He question Dre about telling Tommy he was in with the Feds for a long time. Of course, Dre lies. He told Tommy but deny he did. Ghost gets a visit from his unhappy wife. She tells him about her meeting with Angela. She told him she know about his deal and she was offered a deal too. She makes it clear to Ghost they are in this together and he better start acting like it. She told Ghost don't make another decision with out discussing it with him. Angela let's John know she struck out with Tarsha. Tarsha isn't a snitch and besides she loves Ghost still. She is also loyal. Proctor petition to have the gun remove as evidence.
Dre put another icing on the cake. Cristabal comes to see Dre. He asked about his payment and if him and Tommy was having problems. Dre said he was doing something for Ghost. I wonder how true that is. He tells Cristabal Tommy been acting a little crazy. Then Cristabal drops the news the Julio been messing up. News to Dre ears. Raina is snooping in Tariq's room. She find an envelope of money. Tariq catches her in his room. He is turning into a new Kanan more and more. He was so mean and cussing at Raina. Donavan is being questioned by Proctor. Proctor paints a picture that he could have set up Ghost up. Proctor got under his skin that he lose his temper on the stand. The little helper attorney points out his point he was making to Ghost about the angry black man. John tells Mike and Saks they need a new direction. There case is tanking.
Tommy drops off his first payment to Tony's family. Tommy tries to finds out information about Tony's past life with his associate. However, he gives Tommy no information. Connie walks in and want to know who Tommy is. Tommy say, "a friend of your husband but Connie doesn't believe that. I am back to my original thought, Tony Tersi is Tommy's father. Connie doesn't know he has a child with another man. That's what it seem like. Proctor trued to get information out of Greg's friend. They decide to meet up and see if they can come up with who the mole is. He tells Proctor about the recording but Proctor would have to choose between what client to help. Tony calls for confirmation about Tommy. I am telling yall, that's Tommy's father. Connie questioned Tony's associate about what is Tony secret. Keisha shows a little jealous over Tommy sleeping at Tarsha's house. I guess she wasn't too bothered being that her and Tommy ended up have sex. It seems like that's all them two do. Lol.
Tariq is setting up another one of his friends for Kanan and his crew to Rob. Tommy meets with Proctor. He gives Proctor something to give to Ghost about his meeting at Tony's house. Proctor tells Tommy about his meeting with Greg's friend. Tommy said he wants to hear too. Proctor told Tommy no, but Tommy said, " I'm not asking Proctor." That is not a good idea. Proctor later meet with Ghost and inform him of everything. Tarsha speaks with the principal at the kid's school about security. But that backfires.
She finds out the kid's tuition check has bounced. She has to come up with tuition, or the kids will be kicked out of school. FBI close down Keisha's salon and Truth. Keisha calls Tarsha upset about her shop getting shut down. Tariq leaves and gives Raina the middle fingers.
Dre goes tell Kanan he is going to have a problem with his payments. The club was shut down. Kanan doesn't care about the club; he just wants his money. He tells Dre that too. Tariq walks through the door. He asked Kanan what's he doing here. Dre says Tariq he should head home. Tariq made the decision to stay. When Dre leaves, Kanan sets Tariq up with a girl. But not before giving him weed to smoke. Tariq is going down the wrong path. Just like in most black homes. The father leaves, and the child becomes rebellious. The way to deal with the hurt.

Proctor agrees to get rid of the laptop and the gun. Back in court, the prosecutor pulled a fast one and got Proctor kicked off the case for conflict of interest. He represents Tommy and Ghost. That deal Angela gave Ghost gave them ammunition. However, Proctor did get the gun thrown out. Ghost not too happy about Proctor getting thrown off his case. What will happen now? A drunk Proctor visits Angela. He plants enough seeds for Angela to make a call to see video recordings of Ghost's office. Proctor said one fact, everything he has done was for her.
