The original “Power” came to an end and the internet was heartbroken to see Ghost (Omari Hardwick) die. Many have jokingly said they knew 2020 would be a hard year, when Ghost died. Jokingly, many have said that Ghost was 2020’s first death.
Tariq (Michael Rainey, Jr.) was the one who killed Ghost, after the series finale ran down scenarios of everyone who could have done it. In the end, it was Ghost’s son. Ghost warned Tariq there was no turning back and when he had to go to school to get the fortune, he knew it.
“Power, Book II: Ghost” launched, this summer, with Tariq now building his own empire, while also trying to keep his grades up. This season has seen Brayden (Gianni Paolo) become his right-hand, as Tariq deals with Monet Tejada (Mary J. Blige), and her family. Last week saw her son, Cane (Woody McClain) try to kill him, and now Tariq owes 2-Bit (Michael J. Ferguson), for saving him, setting up an epic season finale.
