Finally, the moment we have all been waiting for has arrived. Power’s sixth and final season is here. It picks right up where last season’s cliffhanger ended with Angela(Lela Loren) taking a bullet to the chest for Ghost (Omari Hardwick). It’s a race against time with Angie’s life hanging in the balance. We quickly learn her fate, and it sets the tone for the Starz hit drama’s new season.
Angela’s Death Further Complicates Things For Everyone
Following the season five finale, fans immediately wondered if Angela Valdez died after she was shot in the chest by Tommy (Joseph Sikora). Power’s showrunner, Courtney A. Kemp immediately informed viewers that Angela was not dead and she would be returning for the sixth and final season. Well, she kinda fooled us, Angela did live long enough to make it into the season six premiere, but there is definitely a catch. The episode opens up with Ghost accompanying Angie during a frantic ambulance ride to the hospital to treat her gunshot wound.
Once they arrive at the hospital, Ghost is immediately questioned by the police as they are trying to figure out what in the hell happened. He is still in a bit of shock after witnessing his “brother” put a bullet in his side boo’s chest and leaves after a few minutes of questioning. His world comes crashing down when Paz (Elizabeth Rodriguez) walks in screaming, calling him a murderer. It’s at that exact moment that we learn that Tommy canceled Christmas for Angela Valdez. Angie died during surgery for her gunshot wound. Ghost cannot believe it, the woman he wanted to spend the rest of his life with is gone at the hands of former best friend and business partner.
Angela’s death sets off a series of events immediately. It further strains the already fractured relationships that Ghost has with Tommy, his wife and even his son Tariq. Tommy, on the other hand, evens things up. Angela’s death served as payback for Ghost tricking him into killing his snitch father, Tony Teresi (William Sadler). At the same time, he also got revenge for Holly in the process as well. Basically, that was a bonus for the snowflake gangster.
While we are still on the subject of Tommy, he is desperately trying to cover his tracks now. While he missed his intended target which was Ghost, he isn’t mad about putting a bullet in Angela. He first calls Keisha (La La Anthony) — who is filling in for Holly as his new ride or die — and tells her the recent developments. He instructs her to meet up with him with a change of clothes at a location he will reveal to her later. When they do finally link up, he gives her the murder weapon instructing her to toss it in the river. She’s hesitant, but agrees to dispose of the evidence, he hops back in his car, leaving her on the corner where he met her at.
Tommy then links up with Tasha (Naturi Naughton) to break down what happened at the high school. He informs his ex-business partner’s estranged wife that he shot Angela and needs an alibi but at the moment doesn’t know she is dead. Tasha is worried because if she survived, there is a good chance Angela will drop a dime on Tommy, and an alibi won’t help him. Plus at the same time Ghost or as she describes him, “the devil” is on his ass now. Tasha knows precisely how her husband is going to respond following the “failed” assassination attempt. She urges Tommy to fix things if that he wants an alibi because it could be detrimental to the kids, her and Tommy, he might be too late though.
