I really feel this season is going to be the best season of Power. Ghost is at his lowest point right now and for once, he can't control the situation. At this point, he doesn't even know who to trust. Who will turn on who is the ultimate season 4 question?
We only at the second episod of the season and we already on the edge of our seats. I am already yelling at Dre for playing both sides. Screaming at Tyriek for him showing no loyalty to his father. I saw Tommy and Keisha hooking up. I just didn't know it already was happening. Lol. Gotta give this episode a (10) rating because no matter what we speculate, they throw in that Omg moment or that WTH moment.
The episode opens with Ghost trying to maintain in his cell after a beating from two correctional officers. I am assuming Ghost as never been in jail before because this appears new to him. Maybe the circumstances is just new. He can't be Ghost. He has to be the honest, clean business man, James St. Patrick. As he stare in the mirror of his jail cell, I bet he wishing he never ran back into Angela.
Tarsha is at home trying to sugar coat to the kids. Tyriek believe his father is guilty because Slim aka Kanan keeps feeding him negative thoughts about father. Raina just want her father home and safe. Tarsha tells the kids not to talk about their father to anyone. She also tells them to keep quiet about Ghost being their father nickname. These kids has been fortunate enough to not grow up in the hood. Right now, nothing makes sense to them. Unfortunately, Tyriek is hanging around the wrong person who is about to introduce him to a world he not ready for.
Keisha shows up at Tommy's house upset. After meeting Angela, the Feds searching Tarsha's place and Ghost still being in jail; Keisha want out. It's sad how she innocently got caught up in this mess. She want Tommy and Tarsha name off her shop paperwork. Unfortunately, Tommy tells her that can't happen. Tarsha money can't stir up any suspicious if anything starts changing right now. Keisha doesn't want to end up in jail. She tells Tommy, " You would understand if you had a child." Well, Holly was pregnant. Tommy fatherhood ended with her death. He was cheated on that for now.
Proctor visits Ghost and see he hurt. He asked him did he fight back. Ghost tells him no. Proctor reminds Ghost he has to act like James St. Patrick and not Ghost. Proctor hasn't come up with away to get him out of jail. Ghost tells Proctor Angela is setting him up. He tells him to tell them about his relationship with Angela. At the same time, John is trying to get his case together. He is thinking about putting Angela on the stand. In this moment, we see just how much Angela and Ghost relationship affect this case in a negative way. If either one of them get on the stand, it will not help Ghost get out of jail. It makes him look more guilty then ever and it makes Angela's relationship with Ghost the center of attention.
Dre is running Truth. He is also running drugs out of Truth. Wonder how Ghost going to feel about that when he finds out. Just as Dre is informing staff how ordering bottles will be charged up, Dre gets a call from Ghost. Proctor told Ghost to start making calls and acting like a business man. Only right that first call is to Dre. Ghost tells Dre he will in jail longer then before. Dre tells Ghost he has been talking to Karen everyday. Karen and her dad was ready to walk away from the deal that Ghost invest all his money into. Dre assures him he has everything on lock. Hmmmm, what does that mean Dre?
With Ghost being locked up, Tommy business is having some issues. People not trying to get caught up in jail sentences by associating with Ghost and Tommy. Even though Ghost is out of the business, people don't want to take that risk. Tommy isn't feeling being disrespected, so he ready to prove a point. Julio remind him, things is too hot for him right now. Julio agree to handle Cristabal. Meanwhile in jail, Ghost get approach by some unpleasant company. Everyone in jail think Ghost is a clean business man by the name of James St. Patrick who is accused of killing a Fed. When dude get to close with unwanted sexual advances, he soon learn it's more to James St. Patrick. Hearing dude bones crack was enough for me. Ouch!!! The old white guy tells Biscuits that's enough. Now this white guy is important. I am betting that is Tommy's father. Who will agree with me on that?
Dre is happy to see his plan running smoothly at Truth. Two bottles being charged but one bottle and a matchbox of pills is the actual purchase. Dre really loves this moment. Proctor does a TV interview. John is upset about Proctor making Ghost case race issues. Mike suggested they try to get a gag order in a place. I can't wait till his secret comes to light. Angela, John and everyone else is sitting right there with the real killer, and they don't know it. John and Proctor has a history. John refuses to lose in this case especially not to Proctor. Hopefully, Proctor wins this case.
Tarsha's remind the kids to not talk to anyone about their father as she drops them off at school. While in the car talking to Tyreik, a camera man is taking a picture. Tarsha loses her cool and brings his camera. Of course, Tyreik uses Tarsha's actions against her. Right now, Tyreik hates his parents. He feels they are liars and it doesn't help with Kanan building the tension. Once in school, Tyreik get approached by some kids. They question him about the gun he brought to school. Verses Tyreik keeping quiet and walking away, he places some fear in the kid. His actions upset Raina. She tells her brother, " I don't know you anymore." Well Raina, you about to see more changes in Tyreik thanks to Kanan aka Slim. Tyreik calls Kanan once Raina walked away. Kanan tells Tyreik his father is guilty. He is truly coaching Tyreik into hating his father. A son for a son, I say again. Tyreik going to be loyal to Kanan like Sean was loyal to Ghost.
Tony seems to have his own issues. Some how Tony character is important. I truly feel it. Julio has the meeting with Cristabal and more disrespected took place against one of Tommy's boys. John, Mike, Angela and Proctor has a meeting in the judge chambers. John request for a gag order was denied. Way to go Proctor!!! Now get Ghost free!!! Lol.
The police have a search warrant for Truth. They are determined to make their case against Ghost solid. Unfortunately, Mike is dirty as ever. He didn't get rid of the murder weapon after killing Greg. He is a part of the search for Truth. Once he arrives, we already knew what he was up to. Indeed, he has set Ghost up. He enters Ghost office and puts the murder weapon in a hidden spot on the bar. Please tell me Ghost has cameras in his office. Please tell me Mike will not get away with this too much longer. You know what happened next. Ghost's office gets search, and the gun is found. Even Dre is shocked when they find that gun. His facial expression told it all.
Tarsha took the kids to see Ghost in jail. The years in Ghost eyes was heartbreaking. He tried to hold them back and be strong. Cristobal's boy left a mark on Tommy's boy face. Tommy learns that Julio let that disrespect happen. Tommy walks away not so happy. Tommy check on Keisha. Before you know it, Tommy and Keisha is kissing and having sex in the kitchen. Omgggg! How long will this relationship last? Will this become a serious relationship?
Tony has a meeting with his lawyer. He had his lawyer to run a check on Ghost. Apparently, when John dropped his case to be on Ghost's case; he felt Ghost was important. Interestly, he seemed interested in knowing where Ghost grew up. I am telling yall, Tony is Tommy's father. I bet some money on that.
Back at Keisha's place, Tommy learn some news too. He didn't know that Tarsha had a fling with Shawn and Ghost knew about it. Tommy is so funny, he asked Keisha have you ever played in the snow before. LMAO!! Keisha seems to be liking Tommy. I hope Tommy isn't playing her. I also hope Keisha become a little harder. She can't be all emotional dealing with Tommy and his lifestyle especially with her business is on the line. They both agree to keep there romance a secret from Tarsha.
John gives his statement to the grand jury. Looks like Proctor has an inside connection. Not mad at Proctor for that at all. He need all the help he can get with this case. Mike has the upper hand right now because no one knows all his dirty secrets. If Tommy didn't kill Lobos right hand man before they got a name, Tommy and Ghost would know about Mike. Instead, they only got a burner phone that Ghost gave to Angela.
John is happy about the murder weapon being found. Angela is shocked that they found a weapon at Truth. The prosecutors plan their defense. They think Tommy is Ghost and James is following their orders. Only one person in the room know Tommy isn't Ghost. The fact that she is going along with this story means what. Her love for Ghost means nothing at this point. The prosecutor plans to use Tommy as the ace in the hole for Ghost case, but first they have to connect dots. Which mean, Tommy have to lay low with his business. Proctor meets up with Tommy. Dre filled Tommy in on the police finding the gun at truth. Proctor tells Tommy of the prosecutor plan to use him against Ghost. Proctor tells Tommy to lay low but Tommy can't lay low right now. Proctor tells Tommy things is going to get worst. Tommy agree to lay low but he not before giving Proctor a warning. "If he get arrested, I'm going to kill you", Tommy told Proctor.
Tommy takes care of his business of proving a point. He runs over Cristabal's right hand that disrespected his boy. Tyriek goes to see Kanan aka Slim. Kanan asked Tyriek about his dad. Tyreik show more disrespected towards his dad. Why he so mad at his father? Because of him being with Angela or because of all the things Kanan telling him? Hmmmm. Tyreik asked, Slim do he know who Kanan is? Of course Slim said, "Kanan is dead". How is Tyriek going to feel when he learn Kanan and Slim is the same person? He mad at his father for lying but his new best friend lying to him too. See Tyriek, you should stay in your lane because you dancing with fire right now.
Proctor visit Ghost. He tells him about the gun at Truth and the Feds thinking Tommy is Ghost. Proctor tries to talk Ghost into flipping on Tommy. Ghost will never turn on Tommy. The Feds put a tracking device on Tommy's car. Good thing Tommy gave his car to his mom. Smart thinking Tommy. Angela is concerned about the gun being at Truth. She share her thoughts with Mike. Of course he has a logical reason for the gun being at Truth. John interrupts their conversation with his good news. The judge approved the death penalty for Ghost. WTH!!!!! Proctor informs Ghost and Tarsha gets a phone call. Angela has the nerve to look upset or feel sad. Don't know about anyone else but I was so disappointed about Tarsha and Angela coming face to face. After hearing Ghost is facing the death penalty, Angela deserved a hood ass whipping. However, it's bad timing for it but that cat fight between Tarsha and Angela is long overdue. She even add more salt to the wound by telling Tarsha Greg was her boyfriend at one point. Now, it's like Ghost killed Greg over you. Angela planting seeds in Tarsha's head. Angela, you not that important to Ghost.
As we get close to the end of this episode, Dre come face to face with Kanan. Kanan thinks Dre told Tyreik about him. But, we all know it was Tarsha who questioned Tyreik about Kanan. See Dre, playing both sides gets you deeper into danger. Even though Dre told Kanan he didn't tell Tyreik about him, Kanan doesn't believe him. Dre is paying Kanan to stay away from Tyreik. When he mentioned that to Kanan, Kanan makes it clear he doesn't trust him and now he paying him to keep him alive. I don't know what Dre next move will be other then telling Tommy Kanan is alive. Ghost is moved to the death row holding cell. Ghost calls Tommy and for once in a long time we see the love, the bond and the brotherhood these two have. Heartbreaking watching Tommy's face as Ghost has for his help and to take care of his family. How is Tommy going to free both of them from the biggest challenge they ever face?
Power has us all on the edge of our seats wondering what will happen next. How will Ghost get out of this sticky situation? Stay tuned in to find out. If you missed this episode, you can catch it on Comcast On Demand.
