Yup - thats what is supposed to separate him from Tommy or Kanan....but honestly in many ways they look more in control about themselves than him this season. Tommy just straight up murking someone is expected..with Ghost it doesnt fit - especially after this he would never kill a Cop, he is too smart etc.

I can understand it while on the stand... I guess. But flat-out murdering someone in prison, and the person isn't even another inmate? The fuck is wrong with him lol

Is there any predominately black shows that appeal to neogaf? I think Empire had the longest run here before dying.

Possible but I would find that odd she was really an inconsequential character and that's why they killed her. More likely that's he's Tommy's father.

Inconsequential in life maybe... but her death seems to be a continuing problem for tommy. tommys father would be too easy to predict, they would have just said it by now.

I also think ghost is the type that would already know everything there is to know about the man he works so close with. The man hes been best friends with. Tommys mom is a lose cannon, she probably would have said the fathers name in passing too. I think the question of tommys dad would have come out decades ago for ghost.

Hell, the fbi would have tried to connect tommy to the mob father by now if it were him.

The holly family mob story gives new enemies for the next season.


I could be 100% wrong, but we'll see. lol

Major movement in tonight's episode. Damn!

I sat up straight in my chair when Kanan pounced on Ghost out of nowhere. I thought they were going to keep him in the shadows until the season finale - I definitely didn't expect the Slim/Tariq subplot to be wrapped this soon.

Damn, the whole Kanan/Ghost thing happened way faster than I thought it would, and resolved way faster than I thought it would too.

They've obviously been setting the grounds for Kanan clearly growing to like Tariq, but I didn't think it'd be as straightforward as Kanan straight up asking for Ghost's help to take down Jukebox. Speaking of Jukebox, that was pretty underwhelming how she went down; really the whole thing felt kinda rushed. Now... they're kind of cool? For now at least?

I mean, I don't really mind it, it's a lot more interesting actually keeping Kanan around I suppose. If they plan on having him "redeem" himself and get back on good terms with Tariq, that'd be horrifingly amusing considering all that's happened.

But hey, Tariq ain't exactly been the brightest kid, so who knows...

50 Cent Lashes Out On Instagram, Threatens To Exit ‘Power’

Jackson posted a threatening photo collage on the social media platform with the caption,”I woke up feeling a little different about POWER this morning . If the biggest show on your net work doesn’t mean anything, what does your network mean STARZ? I’m taking my talents to south beach f*ck this.”

Jackson’s straight-forward threat to leave the show comes after Sunday’s episode, which was originally planned as a two-parter. The episode saw the death of two major characters and was supposed to include additional storylines. According to showrunner Courtney Kemp, Starz didn’t agree to extend the episode.

Really enjoyed this latest episode this shows sort of a guilty pleasure for me but this season is actually wrapping stories up in a satisfying way. Was really rooting for neck tat dude in his fight and Kanans redemption was really well done.
Ps. I can't imagine the episode being any longer but maybe it would of made sense.

I understand his frustration, but it was still a good episode and moved things along nicely without feeling rushed.

A certain other show should take notes...
The episode was rushed garbage.

Kanan's redemption seemed forced and superficial. So let me get this straight: he's going to align with his hated enemy to set up his top soldier, someone who was down with him from the beginning and reared him back from the dead? All to save Ghost's kid? This the same guy that ended his own son for being too close to Ghost? WTF?

Yeah, I think I'm out.

Nah, it was definitely rushed. We've been waiting for this plot to unfold for awhile now. Now it just suddenly happens, and it's over in the same episode.

As Ghost moves forward with his new business, the St. Patrick family is thrust into the public eye. Also spotlighted: Tasha seeks out Silver and their relationship deepens; and when Tommy returns, Dre talks himself into a promotion.

Best way to describe it is "fun" or "popcorn pleasure". The acting and writing can be a mixed bag, some storylines feel a little contrived and how they're resolved can be a little too convenient at times. I guess Power could be described as a glossy soap in some respects but I see it as a guilty pleasure and I do like a lot of the characters.

Subscribing to the thread. I'm surprised there doesn't seem to be much interest for this on NeoGaf.

Caught up to last weeks episode the other day. Tasha is fine as usual and Tariq is choosing the wrong time to go through his rebellion stage.

These people Tommy is trying to get territory from don't look like they'll oblige.
