Power season six recap – what happened and how did episode 10 end?

THE moment that diehard fans of Power have been waiting for is almost here, as the final five episodes are set to begin on Netflix in the UK this coming Monday (January 6).

For those who may have forgotten any key events that took place in the first ten episodes of series 6, we have a recap of all the drama and a glimpse into what may take place in the remaining episodes.

What's happened in Power season 6 so far?

At the end of season 5 we saw Tommy Egan (played by Joseph Sikora) attempt to kill James St. Patrick, aka Ghost (played by Omari Hardwick), after he was convinced that his best friend made him kill his father just after he starting to build a close relationship with him.

But it was Ghosts's lover Angela Valdes (played by Lela Loren), who was shot and killed instead. Angela, who throughout the duration of Power not only loved Ghost but also tried her best to keep him out of prison, even though her job was to do the opposite and prosecute him for drug-dealing ended up losing her life as a result of all the scheming and lies.

It wasn't just AUSA Valdez who killed off in season 6, we also said goodbye to Jerry Donovan and Alicia Jimenez as well as Joe Proctor and LaKeisha Grant.

In season 6, Ghost and Tommy both had incentives to turn against each other with Ghost making it his mission to get revenge for Angela and kill his best friend of 25 years. Ghost attempts to kill Tommy and even continues to think he's dead until he spots him at Angie's funeral.

It isn't until Tariq lands himself in trouble that the pair unite (briefly) to get him back from Vincent (we can't forget the epic hold-up in Truth).

Tasha opened up a nursery and met a hot new man, Quentin before killing her former best friend LaKeisha to protect her son, Tariq. The mystery over Terry Silver's disappearance was finally solved as Tasha led Saxe and Rodriguez to his body.

Meanwhile, Tariq was selling pills at his fancy boarding school and got into a load of trouble with Vincent before being expelled from Choate.

 Tasha went to desperate lengths to protect her family

In episode 10, it seemed as though Ghost was finally starting to put his dark past behind him. He had a new love interest, Ramona and his future political career looked hopeful. But his joy didn't last long as we saw temperatures reach boiling point when each key person in his life was seen marching towards Truth to finally finish off the nightclub owner once and for all.

A gunshot was heard and Ghost was shot in the chest and sent tumbling to the ground from the balcony on which he was standing.

The next five episodes should reveal who was finally able to catch up the drug-dealer and send him falling to what looks like a gruesome death.

Have any spoilers for the final episodes of Power been released?

No official spoilers have been released for the final 5 episodes of Power, but there are several theories that relate to who shot James St. Patrick.

However, Joseph Sikora who plays Tommy, seem to let slip on social media that attorney Cooper Saxe was the one who pulled the trigger.

Saxe has been hellbent on locking up Ghost for good and even resorted to illegal ways to try and get his man.

But his plans have always failed and by episode 10 of series 6 the former attorney lost his job and the faith of those he worked with.

With nothing left to lose, he set his sights on killing the man who he dedicated his life to catching.

Commenting on the trailer for season six which was shared on Joseph’s Instagram, Shane Johnson who plays Saxe wrote: “My brother, you’re on your game - always an inspiration.”

Joseph replied: “@shane_m_ johnson you’re just saying that cuz you shot Ghost.”

The creator of the show Courtney Kemp has revealed Ghost was shot with his ex-lover Angela’s gun but it’s not known where it is now.

 It appears that Ghost's dark past has finally caught up with him after he was brutally shot in the chest

From Executive Producer Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson and show creator Courtney Kemp Agboh (The Good Wife) comes Power, a visionary crime drama set in two different worlds - the glamorous New York club scene and the brutal drug trade.

James "Ghost" St. Patrick has it all: a beautiful wife, a gorgeous Manhattan penthouse, and the hottest, up-and-coming new nightclub in New York. His club, Truth, caters to the elite: the famous and infamous boldface names that run the city that never sleeps. As its success grows, so do Ghost's plans to build an empire. However, Truth hides an ugly reality. It's a front for Ghost's criminal underworld; a lucrative drug network, serving only the wealthy and powerful.

Season two picks up right where it left off: James "Ghost" St. Patrick doubling down on his drug business to save his nightclub and dream of a legitimate future. Ghost's work troubles pale in comparison to juggling his relationship with his wife, Tasha, and his first love, Angela, who's also an Assistant US Attorney investigating his drug organization.

Ghost is set further back from his dream by his business partner, Tommy, who loves the drug game, and his former mentor, Kanan, fresh out of jail and looking for revenge.

Season two has Ghost in a race against himself: Can he get out of the drug game alive before Angela discovers who he is?

The new season will pick up on the heels of James "Ghost" St. Patrick's highly publicized arrest by his ex-girlfriend, Assistant U.S. Attorney Angela Valdes, for the murder of FBI Agent Greg Knox - a crime he did not commit. Ghost can't outrun his past choices and mounting enemies this season, which threaten his freedom and his family's safety at every turn. His fight for redemption brings him face-to-face with the Feds, the media, new allies, and old foes. But the biggest obstacle for Ghost remains himself and his internal struggle between the man he wants to be and the one he really is.

Series overview[edit]

Episodes[edit]

Season 1 (2014)[edit]

High-level drug dealers James "Ghost" St. Patrick and his childhood friend Tommy Egan open the popular and exclusive Truth nightclub in New York City as a means of laundering their drug profits. Ghost, who lives in a luxury penthouse with his wife Tasha, their three children and Tasha's mother, focuses on running and marketing the nightclub in hopes of becoming a legitimate businessman. The more violent and less polished Tommy concentrates on the drug operation, which he sees as the priority. At Truth, Ghost reconnects with his long-lost childhood sweetheart, Angela Valdes, who is now a successful lawyer and, unbeknownst to Ghost, an Assistant United States Attorney (AUSA) seeking to take down Ghost and Tommy's drug supplier ("connect"), Mexican cartel chief Felipe Lobos. Ghost and Angela fall in love and begin a secret affair, while Tommy starts a relationship with Holly Weaver, a Truth server and habitual thief. Meanwhile, a mysterious female hitter, "Pink Sneakers", disrupts the drug network by attacking several couriers, killing distribution leader ("primera") Anibal Santalises, and seriously injuring another primera, Carlos "Vibora" Ruiz. Unbeknownst to Ghost and Tommy, their imprisoned mentor Kanan Stark ordered the hits, but Kanan convinces Ghost that Ghost's friend and protege Rolla is responsible, causing Ghost to kill Rolla. In the season finale, Pink Sneakers tries to kill Ghost during a party at Truth, but accidentally shoots Holly instead, then escapes. Truth is shut down by the police.

Season 2 (2015)[edit]

Truth reopens under the ownership of scheming nightclub mogul Simon Stern, who forces Ghost to work for him with the possibility of Ghost buying back the club when it hits a certain profit target. Stern then sabotages Ghost's efforts and falsifies records to prevent any buyback. Kanan, newly released from prison, bonds with Tommy while plotting with Ruiz and the new primeras Drifty and Vladimir "the Serb" to kill Ghost and take over the drug distribution network. Kanan holds a grudge against Ghost, who he claims set him up for the arrest that sent him to prison for years. Ghost tries to kill Pink Sneakers, but Kanan's prison protege Dre Coleman mortally wounds her first. Before she dies she tells Ghost that Rolla didn't order the hits, which makes Ghost suspect Kanan.

Tommy and Ghost learn that Angela is an AUSA pursuing Lobos with a federal task force. Angela investigates Tommy, who she believes is the direct connection to supplier Lobos, but becomes suspicious after Holly, recovered from her wounds and under pressure from the FBI, tells her that the connection "Ghost" is James St. Patrick, not Tommy. Realizing that Tommy is more loyal to Ghost than to her, Holly leaves him with the secret help of Ghost, who wants her gone. Tasha, upset by Ghost's cheating with Angela, forces him to move out, but when she learns Angela is an AUSA, tells Ghost to continue the affair to protect Tasha and his children. Tasha starts her own affair with Ghost's driver Shawn, who is also Kanan's son. Kanan orders Shawn to kill Ghost, but after Shawn fails to do so and then rejects Kanan as his father, Kanan kills Shawn.

When Lobos comes to New York to meet with Ghost and Tommy, ostensibly to collect money but also planning to kill them, Ghost manipulates Angela into having the FBI raid the meeting before Ghost arrives. Lobos and Tommy are arrested, but defense attorney Joe Proctor gets Tommy released due to Angela's prosecutorial misconduct, based on evidence Ghost stole from her apartment. Although she beats the misconduct charge, Angela now knows that James is Ghost, a major drug dealer and killer, and she breaks up with him.

Ghost finally reclaims ownership of Truth and two other clubs after proving that Stern is an embezzler hiding assets from his estranged wife. Ghost then eliminates his own distribution network, making it look like the work of a rival Mexican cartel. He kills Drifty and Vladimir, pays off Ruiz to disappear, and recruits Dre to work with him legitimately. Ghost tries to have Lobos murdered in prison, but Lobos survives with serious injuries. Ghost and Kanan fight to the death in a basement, ending with Ghost apparently killing Kanan and burning his body. However, fire investigators later note that someone broke out of the basement, suggesting that Kanan may have survived.

Ghost tells Angela he will be a completely legitimate businessman going forward, and the two reconcile. Angela is threatened by her ex-boyfriend Greg Knox, an FBI agent whom she exploited to conduct her investigation and then ruined in order to protect Ghost. Holly returns to Tommy and tells him that Ghost forced her to disappear, causing Tommy to mistrust Ghost. Tommy then gets a call from Lobos, who was smuggled a phone by Angela's boss Mike Sandoval, the head of the Lobos Task Force. Lobos orders Tommy to kill Ghost or else Lobos will kill Tommy, Holly, and their dog, as well as Ghost.

Season 3 (2016)[edit]

Believing Lobos is dead, Ghost moves in with Angela and pursues a lucrative deal with hotel magnate Karen Bassett to put nightclubs in Bassett properties worldwide. The Lobos Task Force, led by Mike who is secretly Lobos’ mole, decides to keep Lobos’ survival secret and prosecute him as “John Doe”, but Angela reveals to Ghost that Lobos is still alive although this could get her the death penalty. Tommy cuts off contact with Ghost and rebuilds the drug organization with the help of Holly and Tasha. Holly finds out about Lobos’ threat and pushes Tommy to kill Ghost for their own protection, but Tommy cannot bring himself to do it. Holly finally orders a hit on Ghost without telling Tommy. When Tommy finds out, he flies into a violent rage and strangles her to death, regretting it afterwards. Ghost survives the attempt on his life due to the quick action of Dean, a personal security guard he hired. Tommy and Ghost reconcile.

Greg, who had been suspended from the Lobos Task Force for stalking Angela, gets back on the task force by finding Ruiz and offering him a deal to testify against Lobos, hoping he will also implicate Ghost and Tommy, but Angela thwarts the plan. Mike arranges for Lobos to escape during a prison transport, but Tommy and Ghost kidnap Lobos during the escape attempt and kill him. Angela suspects Ghost of murdering Lobos but cannot find evidence of it, due in part to Tasha providing Ghost with an alibi. Greg, who was with the transport and was nearly killed himself, insists that someone on the task force must have leaked information and believes it was Angela.

Meanwhile, Kanan, who survived Ghost’s attempt to kill him, recovers from his serious injuries in Washington, DC under the care of his criminal cousin, the corrupt DC police officer Laverne “Jukebox” Garner. Kanan returns to New York to take revenge on Ghost and get control of Ghost’s drug network. Kanan coerces Dre into introducing him to Ghost’s teenage son Tariq, who is angry at his father for deserting the family for Angela and has begun to act out. Kanan befriends Tariq, tells him about Ghost’s criminal past, and encourages him to skip school, drink, steal, and transport contraband.

Finally free of Lobos, Ghost discovers that his security guard Dean is actually Milan, a brutal Serbian connect who threatens Ghost’s family and Angela and forces Ghost and Tommy to work for him. Milan grooms Tommy for a high-ranking position but plans to kill Ghost after he signs the nightclub deal with the Bassetts, so that Milan’s organization can take over the Bassett clubs. In order to protect Angela from Milan and from his own drug activities, Ghost breaks up with her without telling her the real reason why. Heartbroken and facing an internal investigation in the wake of the Lobos murder, Angela returns to Greg, who resumes their affair but continues to secretly investigate her and Ghost. Ghost plots to use Ruiz to bring down Milan by sending him into a meeting with Milan wearing a recording device given to Ruiz by Greg, but Tommy kills Ruiz and berates Ghost for making plans without consulting him. Greg recovers the recording device worn by Ruiz, which captured information incriminating Tommy and Ghost, but cannot be used in court because Greg's investigation was unofficial and did not follow proper procedure. Ghost breaks into Greg’s apartment looking for the recording device, but cannot find it. Despite all his attempts to link Angela and Ghost to Lobos, Greg discovers instead that Mike was Lobos' mole, causing Mike to kill Greg in Greg’s apartment and frame Greg as the mole. Angela investigates and finds Ghost’s fingerprints on Greg’s window, left by Ghost during his recent break-in.

Ghost throws a major party at Truth to celebrate finalizing the Bassett deal. After the contract is signed, Ghost and Tommy, who has turned Milan’s own organization against him, take Milan from the club at gunpoint and kill him. Tasha receives a text from Kanan, who has kidnapped and drugged Tariq with the help of Jukebox and another corrupt police officer, Raymond “Ray Ray” Jones, demanding a ransom for Tariq's return. Kanan and Jukebox plan to kill Tariq anyway after receiving the ransom. Upon returning to Truth, Ghost is confronted by Angela, who handcuffs and arrests him for the murder of Greg Knox.

Season 4 (2017)[edit]

With Ghost arrested and unable to pay a ransom, Dre pays off Kanan, Jukebox and Ray Ray to let the unconscious Tariq go free; the ransom demand to Tasha is passed off as a practical joke. Held without bail for the capital murder of Agent Greg Knox, and under investigation for alleged RICO violations, Ghost struggles to maintain the façade of a legitimate businessman in prison, while Tommy struggles to control the drug network and Dre secretly schemes to take it over and deliver it to rival suppliers, the Jimenez cartel. Ghost’s fellow inmate Tony Teresi, an aging mob capo and hitman, blackmails Ghost in order to get in touch with Tommy, later revealing to Tommy that he is Tommy's father, whom Tommy's mother Kate claimed was dead.

Mike Sandoval plants evidence to frame Ghost for Greg’s murder, but Angela begins to have doubts about Ghost’s guilt and ends up testifying in his defense, resulting in all charges against him being dismissed. She continues to investigate and eventually discovers that Mike was Greg’s killer and Lobos’ mole. Mike is arrested and Angela informs Ghost’s lawyer Terry Silver, hoping that Ghost and Tommy will kill Mike to prevent him from revealing their involvement with Lobos. Teresi has Mike killed in prison at Tommy’s request. Angela is promoted to the supervisory position formerly held by Mike.

Upon his release, Ghost discovers that Tasha, whose accounts were frozen during the investigation, accepted a large loan from Simon Stern to pay the family’s bills. As payback, Stern forces Ghost to be his partner in a real estate development that requires a Black owner. Against Stern’s wishes, Ghost supports Councilman Rashad Tate’s proposal to develop the run-down neighborhood where Ghost grew up. Tate helps Ghost develop his public image and forces Stern to change his partnership contract to benefit Ghost, but Tate makes clear that he expects favors from Ghost in return. Local waitress Maria Suarez recognizes Ghost’s voice from a TV interview as the man who shot her fiance (a hitman working with Pink Sneakers in Season 1), and goes to the Justice Department to tell her story.

Unbeknownst to his family, Tariq has been partying with Kanan and his crew and helping them commit burglaries. Jukebox pushes Kanan to carry out her original plan of kidnapping Tariq, making Ghost deliver a ransom and then killing Ghost and Tariq; however, at the last moment, Kanan chooses to spare their lives and kills Jukebox instead. Tariq helps two crew members carry out a home invasion robbery during which they murder the homeowner, putting Tariq’s life in jeopardy as a witness. Ray Ray kills the crew members and then searches for Tariq, finally catching up to him outside his school. Tariq hides while his twin sister Raina confronts Ray Ray and is shot dead. Tariq tells the police and his parents that he didn’t see who killed Raina, but goes on his own to take revenge on Ray Ray. Kanan figures out that Ray Ray killed Raina and tells Tommy and Ghost, while Tasha learns Tariq’s whereabouts from a phone trace ordered by Angela. Tommy, Ghost and Tasha all arrive just as Tariq kills Ray Ray, and help him cover it up. To protect Tariq, Tasha tells Terry Silver, with whom she has been having an affair, that she killed Ray Ray. Angela, who suspected that Ray Ray killed Raina, begins investigating his murder.

Dre disrupts the drug operation by having distributor Julio murdered, burning a shipment of product, and killing primera Father Callahan, all in furtherance of his plan to take over as connect under the Jimenez cartel. Dre promises Kanan a place in the new network, but instead tries unsuccessfully to have him killed. Kanan informs Ghost and Tommy of Dre’s duplicity, which is confirmed when all three see Dre leaving a meeting with the remaining primeras and Alicia Jimenez. In the season finale, Kanan, Ghost and Tommy join forces to go to war with the Jimenez and take down Dre.

Power (TV series)

American drama television series

Not to be confused with The Power (TV series), Powers (American TV series), Powers (British TV series), or Power series.

Power is an American crimedrama television series created and produced by Courtney A. Kemp in collaboration with Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson. It aired on the Starz network from June 7, 2014, to February 9, 2020.

Upon release, Power gained positive reviews for its pacing, atmosphere, and acting.[1][irrelevant citation][2][irrelevant citation] It is one of Starz's most highly rated shows and one of cable's most watched shows.[3][4] Prior to the premiere of the fifth season, Starz renewed the show for a sixth and final season, which premiered on August 25, 2019.[5][6]

Overview[edit]

Power tells the story of James St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick), an intelligent, ruthless drug dealer who has the alias of "Ghost". He wishes to leave the criminal world to pursue legitimate business interests as a nightclub owner. St. Patrick aims to balance those two lives, while also avoiding police capture, trying to navigate his crumbling marriage and manage shifting economic alliances.

The show also features James' family, which partly consists of his wife Tasha (Naturi Naughton) and son Tariq (Michael Rainey Jr.). Power also follows James' criminal partner and best friend Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora), love interest and criminal prosecutor Angela Valdes (Lela Loren), friend-turned-rival Kanan Stark (50 Cent), protege and rival Andre Coleman (Rotimi Akinosho), and Angela's colleague, Cooper Saxe (Shane Johnson). Defense attorney Joe Proctor (Jerry Ferrara), district attorney John Mak (Sung Kang), and politician Rashad Tate (Larenz Tate) also appear in the show's later seasons.

Accolades[edit]

Reception[edit]

Critical response[edit]

Season 1[edit]

Season 1 of Power received mixed reviews from critics. Review aggregator Metacritic gives the season a score of 57 out of 100, based on 15 reviews, indicating a mixed reaction to the series.[26] Review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes gives the season a score of 41%, based on 17 reviews, with an average rating of 5.72/10. The site's consensus states, "Power suffers from excessive plotting and the use of overly familiar by-the-numbers story elements."[27]

Tim Goodman of The Hollywood Reporter observed in his review, "Power seemingly wants to be a show that tells a big, complicated, meaningful story about, well, the perils and problems of power and how one man deals with them."[28] The New York Daily News staff writes in their review, "Power hits on all cylinders as it returns for its second season. Throw a couple of great women into Ghost's life—his wife, Tasha (Naturi Naughton), and his recently resurfaced lifelong flame Angela (Lela Loren)—and you have drama that's hard not to keep watching."[29] Critic Brian Lowry ofVariety states in his review, "The three previewed episodes of the show, created by The Good Wife alumna Courtney A. Kemp, move briskly enough, but they're still only moderately compelling. And while 50 Cent's participation provides some promotional heft (he has a cameo in a later episode), the allure of such behind-the-scenes marquee names is usually limited. Mostly, this is undemanding escapism with all the requisite pay-TV trappings, along the lines of what Cinemax is offering in episodic form. While that might be a formula to keep Ghost visible for some time to come, creatively speaking, it leaves Power a touch low on juice.[30]

Season 2[edit]

Review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes gives the season a score of 100%, based on 9 reviews, with an average rating of 7.83/10.[31] Review aggregator Metacritic gives the season a score of 75 out of 100, based on 4 reviews, indicating a generally favorable reaction to the series.[32]

Season 3[edit]

Rotten Tomatoes gives the season a score of 78%, based on 9 reviews, with an average rating of 6.33/10.[33]

Season 4[edit]

Rotten Tomatoes gives the season a score of 83%, based on 6 reviews, with an average rating of 8/10.[34]

Season 5[edit]

Rotten Tomatoes gives the season a score of 100%, based on 6 reviews, with an average rating of 8.8/10.[35]

Spin-offs[edit]

Main articles: Power Book II: Ghost and Power Book III: Raising Kanan

With the conclusion of the original series, it was announced that Starz had planned four upcoming spin-offs in the same universe as Power. These begin with Power Book II: Ghost, which, following shortly after the events of the original series, focuses on Ghost's son Tariq navigating his new criminal life and intending to shed his father's legacy while dealing with mounting pressure to protect his family, including his mother Tasha. The series will co-star Mary J. Blige and Method Man.[36] The other spin-offs include: Power Book III: Raising Kanan, a prequel into the life of Kanan (50 Cent); Power Book IV: Force, which, if indicative of the appearance of his car, gives fans hope that it will follow Tommy (Joseph Sikora) to Los Angeles, California and Chicago and Power Book V: Influence, a sequel set in the political world centering on Tate's (Larenz Tate) ruthless rise to power.[37][38]

On August 4, 2020, it was announced that Power Book II: Ghost is set to premiere on September 6, 2020.[39]

On August 31, 2020, it was announced that Power Book III: Raising Kanan will premiere in July 18, 2021.[38] In July 2021, the series was renewed for a second season ahead of its premiere.[40]

On February 27, 2021, it was announced that Power Book IV: Force will premiere in January 2022.

RELATED STORIES

In the end, you could say Power‘s Ghost literally created his own demise.

Sunday’s series finale revealed that Tariq St. Patrick, Ghost and Tasha’s only son, was the person to pull the trigger and shoot his father in the chest, causing him to tumble off a nightclub balcony and later die.

If you only swung by to find out #WhoShotGhost, there you go. But if you want a bit more detail, especially in light of the news about the recently greenlit spinoffs, read on for the highlights of “Exactly How We Planned.” (And make sure to check out what showrunner Courtney Kemp had to say about the end of James St. Patrick’s story… and the beginning of a bunch of others.)

A preliminary note: Much of this episode, perhaps more so than the four that preceded it, concerns scenes we’ve already seen unfold. So we’re going to shorthand a lot, cool? Tasha is at Q’s place right after she told Blanca where to find Terry Silver’s body, and she wants some lovin’. She shuts down his questions with smooches and such, and pretty soon, they’re getting busy in his bedroom.

Before she leaves — following a text from Tariq wondering where she is — Tasha notices that Q has a gun in his bedside table. File that info away for later (because you know she did). Back at her apartment, when Tariq busts his mother for her walk of shame, she lets him know how she threw his father to the law enforcement wolves and that they can relax, because “He’s going to jail, for good this time.” ‘Riq says she’s a snitch, but she rejects that label. “Sometimes you’ve gotta turn somebody in to get them out your way,” she says. “Your father taught me that.”

Power Finale Recap Season 6 Episode 15Except, as we know, Tasha’s plan to put her estranged husband back in an orange jumpsuit doesn’t go very well. The next morning, both she and Tariq watch the news story about James’ inherent political announcement. As the rest of the events of the day play out, here are some key points we learn from this episode:

* Tariq asks Tommy not to hurt Lisa Marie in his attempts to retrieve the incriminating recording. “I’m going to do what needs to get done,” his uncle replies (but we know he eventually abided by Tariq’s wishes).

* Dre provides a “clean” gun in exchange for Tariq taking him to see Ghost at Truth.

* During their run-in in the cemetery, Ghost releases Tasha from their marriage with this scathing remark: “Go ahead. Be Tasha Green, the half-smart chickenhead who’d still be in the hood if it wasn’t for me.” Ouch.

* Camps cops catch Tariq’s teacher/drug-dealing employee Radnor with the product ‘Riq gave him. But Tariq gets away scot-free.

* Ghost and Tariq argue about the kid turning himself in for killing Ray Ray. During their explosive conversation, Tariq asks his father to tell him about Breeze, aka the drug boss Ghost killed back in the day. [Side note: Anyone else hoping ‘Riq was secretly recording the conversation to be used as evidence at a later date?] Anyway, after James admits that Breeze was like family, “but he got in my way, son, so I had to get rid of him,” things get even more heated, and Ghost ends up pinning his kid and tacitly threatening to kill him.

Eventually, Tasha and Tariq realize that they’re really screwed. Ghost isn’t going to jail for Angela or Terry’s deaths. If Tasha goes against him, he’ll turn her in for killing LaKeisha. And if Tariq goes against him, he’ll turn him in for killing Ray Ray. The only solution, Tasha decides, is that she has to kill Ghost after his event at Truth. And Tariq will have to help as a lookout. So they cry and pledge to have each others’ backs as they decide: It’s time for Ghost to go.

With Q as Tasha’s oblivious wheelman, she puts her plan into action. But then Tariq has a vision of Kanan telling him, “You’re about to let a bitch do your dirty work.” Kanan points out that Ghost and Tasha will wind up shooting each other, but that James will never see it coming from his own son. “It was always gonna go this way. You know it, just gotta step into it,” he adds.

So a galvanized Tariq, armed with Dre’s gun (which he’d stashed at Truth), confronts his dad upstairs at the club. They argue about Ghost’s duplicity, his affairs, Kanan.. all the usual topics. When the teen points his gun at his dad, Ghost says he’ll never be able to go back if he kills him. “I’d do anything to go back, to go back to how it was before you left us for Angela,” Tariq answers, incredibly upset.

By this point, Tasha has realized that something’s up. So she runs upstairs — she’d been hiding in the Escalade’s backseat, ready to do the deed once Ghost got in the car — but it’s too late. Tariq points out that he’s become his father, and that Ghost is now in his way… the same was Breeze was in Ghost’s way back in the day. Ghost tells his son he loves him, then Tariq fires. James St. Patrick reaches his arms out, falls over the side of the balcony and lands in the middle of the dance floor.

Power Finale Recap Season 6 Episode 15Both Tasha and Tariq are freaking out, but he has the wherewithal to task her with getting rid of Dre’s gun. When the kid looks down again at his dad’s body, Tommy sees him — we saw that part of the scene from Tommy’s viewpoint a few episodes back — but then ‘Riq gets himself together and leaves Truth… but not before he sees a drunken Saxe stumbling around the hallway.

But we’re far from the end of the story. Post-Ghost’s murder, we see:

* Warner is fired at the AUSA’s office and Saxe is rehired, thanks to John Mak.

* In his will, Ghost left nothing to Tasha. His estate is split among his three children; because Raina is dead, her share goes to Tariq. However, Tariq won’t inherit everything — and he does get everything, including the clubs — until he gets a degree from a four-year university and maintains a 3.5 grade point average or higher while doing so.

* Blanca brings Tasha and Tariq down to the station and, with Saxe, questions them about Ghost’s death. The party line — that Dre killed Ghost — is not gaining a lot of traction… until Tariq gets Saxe alone and mentions that he saw them at Truth the night of the killing. This is enough to sway Saxe into saying that Dre did it (and then to make Blanca afraid for her career by pointing out that Coleman was her witness that she let go free).

* Tasha and Simon Stern work out a deal: He’ll help get Tariq (who hasn’t even graduated from high school yet) into his alma mater college, Stansfield. In exchange, he’ll get Truth. In addition, Stern hires Tasha to help his company’s “diversity” optics.

* Upon learning of Dre’s death, Tasha uses a burner phone to call the police and tell them that Q killed Ghost. They’re having sex when the cops bust down his door and arrest him for having a firearm, which is a violation of his patrol. Then they tell him he’s accused of St. Patrick’s murder. “Tell ’em I was with you, Tasha!” he shouts as he’s carted off. She says not a word.

Power Finale Recap Season 6 Episode 15* BUT THEN, Blanca later shows up at Tasha’s apartment and arrests her for Ghost’s death. Turns out, Q thought that something shady might be going on the night of the murder, so he went into a nearby diner and bought a Red Bull so he’d have an alibi. Tariq screams that his mom didn’t do it, but the cops handcuff her and take her away. “Live your life,” she tells him on the way out.

Then we watch as Tariq starts school at Stansfield and Tasha, stripped of her wig and eyelashes, becomes a prison inmate. What a big, rich town it is, eh?

Then, in a quick post-credits scene, we saw a young Jamie, Tommy and Angela at the end of a high school day.
