pisode 303 opens up very interestingly with two “young gentlemen” Wookie and Dirt in a pharmacy. Things escalate quickly when Wookie decides he needs some quick cash and proceeds to hold up the joint. Dirt is totally against Wookie’s decision but Wookie isn’t try to hear it. He tells Dirt to watch the door and to make sure no one is coming. Unfortunately for them a cop conveniently rolls up, how lucky is this pharmacy clerk?
Unfortunately he’s not so lucky at all as we have just met our newest power player Jukebox. She asks the store clerk if he notified the police and he tells her he tripped the silent alarm. Jukebox tells the clerk she wished he hadn’t done that and tells Wookie to shoot him.
Well damn, looks like Jukebox is just a cop to the pay the bills legally, Wookie complies with Jukebox’s command and takes out the clerk. She scolds the two young men telling them how many times she told them not to do a job without a plan? Wookie tries to apologize and explain himself but in right in the middle of his explanation Jukebox shoots and kills him 😮 .
Holy shit, Jukebox has no chill! She looks at Dirt and tells him to get the hell out of the store. In the same breath she scolds Wookie’s corpse for making her shoot him. She calls it in like nothing out of the ordinary happened looks like things will be getting interesting quickly on this episode. From there we head to Jukebox’s home where we meet her ride or die girlfriend Candie.
Jukebox breaks down her day explaining why she had to take out Wookie. She then asks about their visitor they have upstairs. Candie tells Jukebox that he hasn’t made a peep since they brought him in from the hospital. Hmm who could they talking about?
Jukebox heads upstairs to check on their guest, and low and behold it’s Kanan laid out in bed.
He’s in really bad shape, suffering from serious burns and a busted side from his last encounter with Ghost but he’s very much alive.
Add that to the growing list of shit Ghost has to worry about in his life. Speaking of Ghost looks like life as being just James is going well. He and Angela are out competitively exercising together and look to be in high spirits after the successful visit and introduction to Ghost’s kids.
The excited couple speak on eventually becoming a family and how they want that for each other. Angela then asks if things are alright at club cause Ghost left her abruptly with the kids to secretly go see Tommy. Ghost let’s her know everything is alright and Angela appreciated the quality time she spent with the kids. After the conversation Ghost challenges Angela to another race to her apartment giving her a head start. She takes off , Ghost immediately texts Tommy letting him know he’s still looking for him. Unknowingly to the both of them suspended officer Greg is watching them.
We zap to Tommy who we see receives the text from Ghost but of course he totally ignores it. He links up with Holly and his new business partner Tasha.
Tasha explains to them exactly how they will clean the money now that Ghost has closed all the laundromats and other businesses. She tells the new kingpin and Holly that they will invest the dirty drug money in hair weaves. Tasha explains to the two that she has a hair connect that will give them a great price if they pay in cash. Of course Holly is a bit slow and doesn’t still understand.
Tommy and Tasha explain to her that since they deal in nothing but cash it’s untraceable and it will be easy to clean by buying the hair in bulk at a wholesale price. They will then sell it to other salons at double the price, basically cornering the hair market cause their prices will be so low salons will have no choice but to come to them. That also means they are going to need more salons to keep up with all of the cash as well and this is where Tasha’s BFF LaKeisha comes into the fold.
Tasha immediately meets up LaKeisha presenting her with the idea of not just doing hair but selling it as well. Tasha makes a very convincing pitch to her home girl telling her eventually they can start a franchise with the idea making her the McDonald’s of hair weaves. Keisha is here for all of it!
With the prospect of tremendous amounts of cash rolling in Keisha is looking forward to finally buying something for her friend Tasha.
Ghost is still searching for Tommy and stops by his apartment but he’s not there. He leaves Tommy another message letting him know he stopped by to see him. Unfortunately for Ghost he has no clue someone is hot on his trail.
That’s right Greg is still following him around and snaps a photo of Ghost leaving Tommy’s apartment. Uh oh definitely not a good look at all.
Now you know it wouldn’t be a pure episode of Power if there wasn’t a sex scene right? We are thrown into a smash session between Julio and the Korean call girl from the last episode he wanted a piece of. After two intense minutes of “calorie burning” Soo cuts off the fresh off he boat Korean act and tells Julio shes from Fort Lee, Texas. She then indulges in some booger sugar (cocaine) .She asks Julio if he wants some and he respectfully declines but points out that she did some earlier. She tells him not to worry and that she’s a big girl but also points out that the coke is weak as hell. Julio asks where she got it from and she tells him she got it from Dylan, Jae Shin’s son.
Julio immediately recognizes that they have a problem on their hands and hits up Tommy immediately to let him know the bad news.
We head back to D.C. and we see Kanan is really bad shape. Laid out looking like Two-Face from The Dark Knight, Jukebox wakes him, up to let him know she brought him a cane to help him out. Kanan isn’t too receptive of that idea of course. He’s clearly in a lot of pain due to his injuries and asks Jukebox to hand him his pills.
Jukebox tells him after he tells her the truth and what exactly happened to him. Kanan tells her that he got into a beef over some territory but Jukebox isn’t buying that story. She tells him she won’t give him the pills until he comes clean with her and she walks out the room with his pills leaving Kanan to deal with the pain. Jukebox is definitely tough cause we don’t see many with the gall to stand up to Kanan without worrying about it.
