xcuse the absence last week FLY gals and gents, but Beanz is back with your with your weekly Power recap. Everyone’s head is on a swivel now, trust is an at all time low and our emotions just watching this show are all over the place. Let’s get into episode 308 which is conveniently titled “Trust Me”.
The episode opens up with Tommy who has survived the severe ass whooping he received at the hands of Milan’s men. He is awaken by his unlikely savior and his pet hovering over his badly bruised body.
Tommy initially thinks that Milan wants to use him for ransom but the Serbian drug lord has different intentions for him. Instead of being his usual scary self Milan is weirdly nice to Tommy and tells him that Tommy is not being held against his will. He tells him that he will have him stitched up and that they have some business to discuss.
Ohhhh Milan is up to something!
Mike on the other hand is a nervous wreck and rightfully so. Now that Lobos is dead he is getting the heat thrown on him by both Hugo and the Feds.
Hugo immediately asks Mike where is Lobos but Mike insists he doesn’t know. The exchange in both English and Spanish gets heated after Mike asks for the phone used by Hugo to contact him. Mike wants to destroy it so nothing can lead back to him. The request triggers Hugo to press Mike and request some money and a plane ticket so he can get the hell out of dodge.
Mike tells Hugo he can’t help him, doing so will ensure they get caught by the feds. Hugo is not trying to hear it and dangles Mike’s ex-wife and daughter over his head telling him he knows their location thanks to Lobos and he will kill them if Mike doesn’t help him. No money and plane ticket = no phone and the death of his loved ones!
Poor Mike has a real huge dilemma on his hands.
We catch back up with Tommy who literally has the blues after surviving his encounter with Milan’s men. His moment of solitude is interrupted by Ghost who has been trying to find him. Ghost immediately notices the bruises on Tommy’s face.
Tommy tells Ghost that his bruises are the outcome of him letting Father Callahan live to see another day against the wishes of Milan. Ghost tells him that Milan came by the crib and threatened the kids and that the feds found Lobos’ body.
Well yeah Ghost that was kind of dumb of leaving Lobos’ body to let the “vultures have at him“.
Ghost tells Tommy the feds know that whoever killed Lobos had inside information and that they think Angela is the leak. Ghost wants Tommy to hit up Hugo and meet with him so he can tell them who is Lobos’ inside guy working for the Feds. Tommy immediately realizes that move will also help Angela and he was like:
Tommy hates Angela with every ounce of his white soul and doesn’t mind seeing her in an orange jumpsuit or dead for that matter. Ghost tells him that if she goes down, they all go down and that they are all connected. Tommy was like:
Tommy realizes he has no choice but to call Hugo and set up the meeting.
Speaking of Angela, looks like she is also making sure all the alibis checkout cause she knows her ass is on the line.
Angela receives surveillance footage from Karen’s hotel in hopes that Ghost will show up in it making his alibi stick. Her worries are put to bed when a stretching Ghost can be seen on the camera footage but we all know he didn’t go for no damn jog that day.
It’s a good thing Ghost’s alibi so far is looking good cause Saxe and Greg are still trying to get Ruiz to snitch on him.
Fortunately for Ghost, Ruiz is not here for Saxe and Greg at all being that they failed to keep Lobos safe. Ruiz tells them they won’t be getting any more information out of him. Looks like they gotta look somewhere else cause the Ruiz ship has sailed on them. Basically this was Ruiz to Saxe and Greg:
Well with Ruiz being the least of his worries for now there is still the issue of Milan. Ghost bumps into Dre at Truth and speaks to him about his new nemesis.
Dre the firecracker that he is wants to know what Ghost’s move is gonna be after he finds out that Milan showed up Ghost’s crib last episode. Ghost tells Dre that right now there won’t be any moves made till he gets more information on Milan.
He also lets Dre know till further notice that they will only talk club business at Truth since there are ears and eyes on them at all times in there. That’s not where the bad news ends though for Ghost, Dre informs his boss that his competition across the street got the drop on him again and scooped the deal from Karen. Ghost was like:
Ghost leaves but unbeknownst to Ghost, Dre is reporting his every move to his nemesis Kanan.
Dre informs Kanan that Milan has Ghost spooked, information that Kanan exactly needed to hear about him.On his way out Ghost makes a very keen observation. He notices a particular brand of cigarettes that one of Milan’s henchman is smoking and steals the pack.
This might be the break that Ghost desperately needs to help him rid himself of Milan.
Tommy meets up with Hugo who is now on the edge, the meeting immediately gets off on the wrong foot with Hugo drawing his gun on Tommy.
Hugo believes that Tommy double crossed them when it came to freeing his now dead boss Lobos. Poor Hugo doesn’t realize that tables will be quickly turning on him.
Ghost magically appears and puts all the pressure on Hugo.
Ghost tells Hugo to give up his inside contact so they can get revenge on him and help their cause in the process. Hugo has no idea that Lobos is dead and threatens the dynamic drug dealing duo that when Lobos finds out about them they will be in trouble.
His threats go even further when he starts talking about Bell and Holly and that instantly triggers the crazy that lays dormant inside Tommy.
Tommy flips on Hugo and fills him with bullets, he kills whatever chance they had at the moment to find out who was the inside contact. Ghost of course is not too pleased with Tommy’s course of action and basically reacts like:
Ghost tells Tommy he has to control himself but Tommy feels he is in total control (he clearly isn’t). Tommy is back on f*** Angela mode and tells Ghost to tell his b**** to not talk and leaves.
Good thing Ghost is the smart one out the bunch and checks Hugo’s corpse for anything that can help their cause and he finds the cell phone he used to talk to Mike.
Back at the federal office Saxe, Greg and Angela are trying to figure out what moves MJ is trying to make in the investigation against them.
Suspicion is running high in the office and finger-pointing is rampant. Their meeting is interrupted by Donovan, he informs them that hit on Lobos was definitely premeditated. Donovan spills all the details pointing out that there was one set of bullets in Lobos and two different sets of footprints.
Greg was like:
That’s all he needed to hear cause we all know who he thinks is behind all of it.
MJ takes her detective skills to Truth to press Ghost and squeeze whatever she can out him on Angela and get him to snitch on her.
Unfortunately for MJ, Ghost is no snitch and plays dumb very well. He refutes all of MJ’s claims of him using Angela to get information out of Angela to commit capital murder. MJ even goes as far to throw in the fact that Ghost paid Angela’s rent to soften her up.
When she asks the million dollar question about Felipe Lobos, Ghost responds by asking “Who is Felipe Lobos?”
Greg is still on the case and meets up Medina.
Greg presents all the new findings to Medina and the fact that one of the hitters had a New York accent and wasn’t speaking Spanish. When Greg tells Medina that he thinks it was Tommy Egan he immediately reacts like:
Medina heard enough and on top of everything was not too happy to find out at the time that Greg was suspended during the time he was helping him. He tells Greg to kick rocks and come back when he has some actual facts he can work it and not insubstantial evidence.
Looks like Lobos isn’t the only one with friends in very high places. Ghost meets up with his contact in vice to explore his cigarette lead.
Ghost asks Donato for addresses and locations of warehouses where they would store the illegal cigs. In return Ghost will hook him up with a huge career changing bust. Donato can’t turn down that opportunity tells Ghost he can’t give him addresses or a warehouse but he can give him bars where they sell them out of.
He tells Ghost that he’s going to have to do all the “leg work” and find out on his own the information he needs by going to the bars and getting cozy with patrons and owners. Unfortunately for Ghost that’s going to require him hitting the booze heavy again to get folks talking.
Back on the Angela front, she heads to Tasha’s apartment to have a conversation with her.
Tasha isn’t too happy to see her husband’s side chick in her lobby once again. She asks Angela if she has a job and she quickly replies saying she puts murdering drug dealers in jail and asking Tasha what does she do?
Angela’s purpose for her visit is to check up on alibis, she points out that Ghost’s alibi will hold up but wonders about Tommy’s. Tasha initially refuses to answer the question, Angela decides she has had enough and starts to make her exit. It’s there Tasha realizes she has to say something and says that Tommy was with his mother Kate in Long Island.
Angela leaves, Tasha quickly picks up her phone and tells Tommy that they have a problem.
Tommy receives the message and is in the process of getting a look at the warehouse that houses Milan’s product.
Tommy is blown away by what he sees what Milan is working with, he also learns that Milan is in the pill business. Milan’s goon explains how they plan to move all of that product. Tommy hears the plan and is not impressed at all, he gives them a much better plan.
Tommy just basically proved he’s worth keeping around just a tad bit longer to Milan as his knowledge proves quite useful. We shall see how long Milan will want to keep the heartbroken distro around though.
Dre is enjoying the perks of working with Ghost, he gets to pick up his kid school and hang out with him at basketball city.
Kanan hits up Dre before Riq comes out telling him he want’s to talk business. Dre tells his secret boss that now is not the time to talk. Now you know, you never tell Kanan that period.
Angela is still on the mission to make sure her ass is covered and that all alibis are straight. She heads to talk to Kate and listen to her to story about Tommy.
Kate explains to Angela that her and Tommy have a “unique” relationship and yeah their mother/son relationship is type weird. Kate tells Angela that Tommy was at the house, he didn’t go anywhere that day and was watching Maury, Povich, Judge Judy and that Tommy really loves Dr.Phil.
Angela keeps the questions coming and asks what did they have to eat and Kate tells her they had pizza. When Angela asks Kate from where, she tells her Tommy picked up the pizza. Angela grows suspicious of the answer and asks Kate that she thought Tommy didn’t go anywhere?
Kate is beginning to look quite silly until Tommy walks in right on time to save his mother from making a complete fool out of herself.
Tommy tells Angela that he was only gone about 20 minutes and Kate cements it by saying it was a short time. He then tells Angela have a seat, looks like they have a lot to talk about.
