ast week’s episode of Power had everyone and including myself on one! So the huge question following the epic death of Holly is how is Courtney and her writers going to follow that epic episode? Well this time we get a near death, a death and an epic break-up! Lets hop into Episode 306 of Power shall we?
We catch up with Tommy in what seems to be the day after his traumatic experience killing his pregnant girlfriend Holly. He is found sleeping in his car by his bro Ghost.
It appears Tommy is having problems staying in his apartment understandably, he did strangle his girlfriend to death in there so I understand. I mean we don’t care that she’s gone though but he still does and hasn’t come to terms with it.
Ghost and Tommy meet to discuss their plan to take out Lobos once and for all but Tommy is still out of it mentally and Ghost knows it.
Tommy has trouble finding his keys to give to Ghost to get into the apartment, once he finds them in his pocket he drops them while handing them over to Ghost. Ghost finally gets the door open to the apartment and poor Tommy begins to just stare inside. Ghost encourages Tommy to get it together because they got work to do.
Tommy and Ghost are not the only ones working on a plan involving Lobos. The feds in are the process of working on a plan to transfer Lobos to another facility in D.C. .
Special Agent in Charge Donovan feels they should be using nothing less than armored tank to transport Lobos out of fear of the Jimenez trying to take him out. Of course that won’t play into Mike’s plan to make sure his secret boss is sprung. Mike uses the fact that people still believe that Lobos is dead to his advantage and they settle on doing a “low profile” transfer utilizing a civilian van modified for the transportation prisoner transport.
Donovan then appoints Greg as the point-man on the transfer as he needs someone he feels he can trust to see this operation through. The meeting adjourns and Angela walks in, she expresses relief to Mike that she can’t believe this case will be finally be over with the transfer of Lobos to D.C.. Little does she know that both her and Mike have secret investments in this case to go away A.S.A.P if they want to live “normal” lives.
Back at Tommy’s crib our favorite duo is getting their plan together and their alibis straight.
Tommy tells Ghost about the details about Hugo and his team, his mind begins to wander off again as he stares into the living room where he took Holly’s life. Ghost immediately notices and closes the door so he can get Tommy back on track. Ghost tells Tommy to link up with Hugo and his men as planned and he will ambush them after they spring Lobos from federal custody. The conversation then switches to alibis, Tommy already has his albi straight using his mom Kate, she will cover for him if he gives her enough coke.
Tommy then brings up the fact he heard Ghost lives with Angela now, Ghost immediately responds he will use his new “business acquaintance” Karen as his alibi. Tommy is confused and thinks Ghost already has “side-bitch on his side-bitch”.
Ghost corrects him and tells him that Karen is an investor and that he will stay at her property up on the Hudson. He can just tell Angela he was away on a business trip and that will be his alibi. Tommy isn’t so sure that Angela will buy into that being that he still doesn’t trust her but Ghost is sure his boo will eat it all up.
The conversation is interrupted by a loud knock on the door, Tommy really should invest in a doorbell or something cause it sounds like the police always knocking at his door.
Well fortunately for Tommy it’s Tasha, she comes walking in the house asking where is Holly and is surprised to see Ghost in the building .
Shocked to find that the duo “worked some shit out” over night Tasha asks immediately what the hell is going on?
Tommy starts to tell Tasha that something big is about to happen but Ghost quickly interjects stating they don’t need to involve her. Tommy insists saying they need Tasha, Tasha looking puzzled wants to know exactly what they need her for?
Ghost quickly heads tot he club, we jump in a conversation between him and his unlikely “knight in shining armor” and head of security Dean.
Dean immediately asks how is Riq is doing? Ghost tells him that he is fine, Dean of course is shocked being that three men died right in front of them at the coy reaction. Riq didn’t see any if it as his amazing noise-canceling headphones made sure he was focused on his music and not the thwarted attempt on his father’s life. Ghost is appreciative of Dean’s efforts but expresses the fact he specifically told Dean not to follow him anymore. The man saved your life and that’s the thanks he gets?
Dean points out that he acted on a hunch and that his hunch helped save Ghost and his son. He tells Ghost if it happens again he will be forced to report it to the authorities. Ghost reassured Dean that it won’t happen again and that he won’t be sharing any plans on how he will make sure it won’t with Dean anytime soon.
The tense meeting between is interrupted by the arrival of Karen.
Ghost called the meeting to get his alibi in order with Karen. He asks if her if they could move their meeting to her hotel on the Hudson. He tells her he wants to spend the night, get the “Basset experience” from the inside out and understand her system. Karen loves the idea as it shows he’s taking her seriously and looks like Ghost’s alibi is set.
We zap to the St.Patrick residence and it’s just like old times with the trio back intact. They are discussing more details about the upcoming job and Tommy kicks things off by stating there should be no phones. Ghost agrees to Tommy’s suggestion and he is shocked being that Ghost can’t be disconnected from the club for that long.
Things get pretty interesting when Tasha asks Ghost why Kate is Tommy’s alibi and not Holly? Ghost tells her it’s just a bad idea. Holly asks if they broke up? Ghost remains silent, then Tasha brings up the baby by guessing Tommy must have told her. Ghost’s face was like:
Ghost gets over the shock of learning Holly was pregnant and tells Tasha that Tommy didn’t tell him much about it. Tasha expresses guilt for telling her to tell Tommy about the baby ohhhhh Tasha if you only knew.
Ghost quickly changes the subject and asks Tasha if Tommy could crash at their house for the night? He fears Tommy will go somewhere and get hammered jeopardizing their plan.
Before Ghost can get in the elevator to leave Tasha asks Ghost if he’s going to home to Angela? Ghost tells her it’s all part of the plan, he bids the both of them ado, before the doors close Tasha gets in one last sentence. She yells at Ghost it’s the “usual shit” and that “he’s always leaving her with the mess”.
With everything coming together there is one more part of the plan Ghost has to get in order and that is selling Angela on his alibi. Ghost heads to Angela’s place to pack and get ready for his trip to Kate’s hotel. Angela walks in the middle of Ghost packing and inquires as to where he is going?
Ghost tells Angela about his visit to Karen’s property on the Hudson and his plan to stay. Angela was initially suspicious about the whole thing but he quickly quells that by telling her she should come with him.
Ghost sells Angela on the dream of jet setting across the world once he lands this huge deal with Karen. Oh Angela is putty in Ghost’s hands at this point and you know exactly where this conversation is going.
If you guessed an intense sex scene, congratulations you win the prize of nothing 🙂 !
