Episode Rating Scale: (9) Excellent
Two things irritated me about this episode, Dre, and Proctor. These two are unbelievable. It shows how you can't trust no one and loyalty is hard to find. It shows how you have to look out for self. Let's talk Power!
Terry wakes up to Tarsha gone and Ghost entering his place. At first, I thought he was on to him and Tarsha. I wonder how he was going to act when he finds out. Would he be mad? And why the hell Terry has them little boy brief on..Lol. Don't he know grown men wear boxers or boxer briefs..lol? Ghost wanted to know if there were any new criminal charges on him and Proctor. Tommy plans to go to war with the Munez family. His offer hasn't gotten a reply. You can see Dre doesn't want to go war. He questions Tommy about if Jason knows him about to go to war. Not a good idea Dre. Tommy was not going to accept the help telling him what to do. Mike rolls up on Saks. Saks was a little uneasy, but he kept his cool. Now that they suspect Mike killed Greg; none of them are safe. Mike doesn't know who to trust at this point. It looks like nobody is trusting anyone and everyone is connected some way and some how. Interestingly, they all have secrets that they want to keep hidden.
Tarsha is daydreaming. Kisha was yelling her name and Tarsha mind was somewhere. Tarsha was about to tell Kisha about her affair with Terry. Raina interrupts their conversation. Tarsha sees the bruise on Raina's arm. Raina covers for Tariq. She is such a good sister. Raina talks to Tarsha about changing school. I guess Raina needs her distance right now. Tariq text Brains. It Looks like Tariq is going down the same path as his father. Ghost meets up with Council Tate played by Larenz Tate in the old neighborhood. The Council Tate and Dre are on the team for a new development for the neighborhood. Ghost was unaware that Dre would be there. Hey, he said he changed Dre life but they are both knees deep in the streets. Donavan tells Saks and Angela about Mike showing up at his house. We all know Mike went there to kill him, but Donavan knows too. Angela, Saks, and Donavan are brainstorming how to bring Mike down. They are all on the same page of believing he is the mole. But, Mike has covered his tracks pretty well. Without proof, they have no case against him. Even though Angela presented the phone Ghost took from Hugo, they can't use it. Hugo was killed by Tommy before they could get answers from him. The only lead Ghost got to the mole was that phone. Even though Angela called the number on the phone and knew someone answered from the Feds headquarters, she didn't hear a voice. All the evidence they have has been obtaining my malice. They have no proof.
Ghost, Dre, and the Council Tate walk the neighborhood. Council Tate wants to build a hub for the neighborhood. A place where the community is working in their community. The Queen Childs Project. The council man has first to clean up the neighborhood from violence and drug dealing. Ghost wants in on this project. But the council person doesn't know about Ghost other life. How can Ghost clean up the neighborhood when his best friend is the connect to the drugs on the street? This is going to be interesting. The Council Tate take a phone call. That's Ghost time to asked Dre why he didn't tell him about coming to the meeting? How much does Ghost trust Dre? That thought has truly been on mind. Dre better stay on Tariq's good side because Tariq can end his life quickly. Ghost question Dre about Tommy business. Dre tells Ghost everything. He tells him about the meeting with the Jimenez Family and how Tommy intended to start a war. Ghost was shocked Tommy meet with them. Dre informs Ghost about Tommy's offer and how they have agreed to his terms. Ghost know a war isn't good for anyone but also not good for this new project. Dre tells Ghost to talk to Tommy.
Tommy visits Kate. He asked his mother about his father. Kate played that off very well. She used Tommy business for the reason, Teresi, lying to him. Tommy believes Kate for now. Dre meets out with the other leaders. None of them want to go to war especially not with the Jimenez. Cristobal and Dre are still working together. They have to figure out away to get two steps ahead of Tommy. Dre plan isn't working out the way he planned. Julio's death brings more drama so far.
Tommy and Ghost meet up. Ghost asked Tommy about this war. But Tommy dropped the bomb about Teresi being his father. He asked Ghost did he know. Ghost didn't know, but the thought crossed his mind in the episode where Teresi gave him that phone. Ghost funny tho, "y'all both got blue eyes. I don't know." Lol. Ghost not worried about Tommy's absent father come back to my life drama, he wants to know about this war. Tommy tells him about his offer and how he told them he killed Lobos. They still haven't made it right. Ghost agreed to meet with the Jimenez. Ghost doesn't get it; he is never fully out. Ghost creeps up on Proctor. Proctor is still the other side of James. Proctor meets Ghost. Ghost asks Proctor about his meeting with Mock. Ghost can't trust anyone and Proctor is on that list. Tommy killing Bailey was truly a bad move. But Ghost is right, Tommy should never let Proctor get rid of Bailey's body and that laptop. Proctor explains that Mock just question him about Bailey coming to see him and being his last call. He swears to Ghost he didn't tell Proctor anything. I like Proctor, but I don't know how deep in he willing to be. I think he will turn on Ghost aka James to save his self. Only loyalty is Ghost and Tommy to each other. Even that seems shaky at times.
Tommy goes back to Teresi's house. He asked for Sammie, but he gets Connie. Connie question Tommy about his parents. I think Connie knows something is up with her and Tommy. She knows it's more than business. Tommy gets Connie out of her living room so he can snoop. He finds a photo album of pictures. One of the pictures must have caught his eye because he steals the picture. Ghost and Tommy meet with the Jimenez cartel. Ghost points out the deal that was made for Julio's freedom and life has been broken. Ghost makes it clear that they killed Lobos without their business being jeopardized. The streets think the Jimenez cartel killed Lobos. If the truth comes out that it wasn't them, who will fear the Jimenez cartel? Diego Jimenez pulls out his gun. Why? What makes him think that would fear Tommy and Ghost? Neither one of them fletch. Lol. The Jimenez still didn't agree to Tommy's demands. Once Tommy and Ghost get in the car, Tommy makes it clear; if he doesn't get an answer by morning, they are going to war. With Dre being the new distro, he is in the car and obtaining this information. Dre has his agenda. Alicia Jimenez is leaving her building, and Dre has this shady look on his face. What is Dre thinking of doing? His next move will be what? Dre has made a come up this season. Too bad it's a shady come up. I think Dre and Tommy could be a real team. However, Dre can't be trusted.
Saks meets up with Mike. He tells Mike, Angela thinks he is the mole. He tells him Angela plan on going to Mock with her information and a tape. Is this a setup or is Saks helping him? Instead of drinking with Saks, Mike takes off. Where is he headed? Tommy confronts Kate again. Tommy has proof Kate is lying this time. The picture Tommy stole was of him and his father. All this time, Tommy thought his father was dead. Finding out Teresi is his father make sense. You can understand why Tommy is so wild. It's in his DNA. Lol. Tommy is so upset with Kate. She tries to explain. She tells him Teresi left them with nothing. What is the real story? Was Kate having an affair with a married man? How will this affect Tommy? Kate tells Tommy he can't trust Tony Teresi. He storms out of Kate's house. Well, Kate, he won't be forgiving you anytime soon.
Mike shows up at Angela's apartment. I guess he has to kill her now. So Saks did set him up. Mike fell for the bait. This was their plan. Mike tells Angela he knows she thinks he the mole. Mike stayed so calm while he spoke to Angela. Mike feels Angela has no proof to back her story. Well, he was wrong. Everything Mike did she pinned pointed Mike's every moved. She even has photos and missing calls from the call log. She asked Mike what did Lobos have on him. Mike confessed. He explained Lobos was going to kill his daughter. The FBI is listening. Mike pulls a gun on Angela. Angela disconnects her wire. Mike was about to tell all he knows about her as well. Mike was going to shoot Angela, but she shoots him instead. Why did she pull the wire? Did she help him by telling him he is a witness, not a murderer? WTH???
Kate visits Teresi in jail. It was a short conversation. She tells Teresi to stay away from Tommy. So Kate was messing with a married man. She made that clear by threatening to tell Connie about her affair with him and Tommy. It was an agreement for Teresi to not be in Tommy's life. Wow!!! Tommy's parents are some airheads. Teresi doesn't take well to Kate threats; he makes it clear.. don't let prison think I can't touch you. Kate didn't care about that either. She told Teresi to stay away from her son. Tommy is grown If he wants to get to know his father. She can't do anything about it.
Tariq is about to Rob this house with Brains. He will be the bait to get inside the house. As he plays the role as a young man selling something, the lady is impressed by him. Once he gets in the house, he gives Brains a nod that she is alone. Brains and his friend enter the house. Tariq takes a punch for the show. This situation went wrong. Tariq didn't leave as he was told. He went upstairs and walked into the lady being almost raped. Number one rule, don't say names when committing a crime. Tariq yells for Brains to tell him to stop. Fatal mistake. Brains shoot the woman in the head. Tariq runs out and keeps running. Tariq life is indeed spinning out of control. Sadly, his parents just don't know. He is drinking syrup, angry, feel betrayed, abused his sister, not going to school and robbing houses. Now add the accessory to murder on the list. Kanan has truly added to Tariq heading down the wrong path.
Mike becomes a witness for immunity. Mock doesn't want that deal. Mike being a dirty agent will raise flags for all his cases he closed. With that being said, Mock said he would see what he can do. Terry arrives at Tarsha and Ghost's place. He brings the good news that an arrest has been made. The charges against Ghost will be ultimately dismissed against him. Tarsha is excited, and she hugs Ghost. Terry was standing there watching. What was going through his mind? Lol. Even Tarsha started to feel uncomfortable. Ghost thanks, Terry and take off to tell Council Tate of the good news. Terry tells Tarsha about Ghost coming to his place. He gives her back her earring. Terry and Tarsha make plans for dinner. How long will this affair last?
Proctor, Tommy and Ghost talk about killing Mike. None of them know what Mike know and what he can tell. Mike has worked for Lobos a long time. Does he know James is Ghost? Does he know Tommy and Ghost killed Lobos? Does he know Ghost and Tommy been running a criminal organization? What does Mike know? Due to Mike being moved soon, they have to work fast to kill him. They are talking about killing a US Attorney in a federal prison, and they are crazy. Tommy wants to use Teresi to kill Mike. They have no other option even though Teresi can't be trusted. Proctor is out of the loop of Teresi being Tommy's father. Tommy makes the call to Teresi. With no questions asked, Teresi helps Tommy. All he needed was a name. Will this come back to haunt them? Does Teresi have hidden intentions with telling Tommy he is his father? After all these years, why does Tommy matter to him now? Dre meets with the Jimenez cartel. He tells them Tommy going to war is wrong. He offers them the nightclubs to sell their drugs. Alicia doesn't trust Dre being that he is there turning on Tommy, the connect. But she agrees to his deal. To by Dre time, she gives Tommy what he wants. Dre wants to be the biggest drug dealer in New York. The drug game has no loyalty. Somebody has to fall for some one to get to the top. Dre calls Tommy with the good news...NO WAR!!
Just when I thought Proctor was apart of the team, he proves he can't be trusted. Proctor never destroyed the laptop that Belo to Bailey. You can only wonder did he destroy the body. Ghost meet with Council Tate. He tells him about the good news of cleaning that street corner of the 718. With Tommy in charge, he can get whatever corners cleaned he wants. Tariq comes home like he just didn't play apart in a person losing their life. He didn't look shocked up no more. Ghost introduced Tariq to Council Tate. He brags about this good kid Tariq use to be. Like father like son, Tariq living a double life too.
How bad ass is Angela? She set Mike up to get killed. Telling Terry about Mike and his whereabouts was the door opener she needed. She knew Terry would tell Ghost. She knew Terry would tell Proctor and Proctor would tell Ghost. ither way, she knew Ghost would kill Mike. He was too much of a casualty.
I just love this season of Power. The came back with a vengeance. Regardless of the leak episode scandal, Power is still pulling in big ratings and got people talking. If you been missing episodes or missed this episode, tune in on Comcast On Demand or visit starz.com.
