“Trust Me”: Power, Season 3, Episode 308 Recap

E

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 Awakes From His Beating Power Season 3, Episode 308

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.

Mike getting pressed by Hugo Power Season 3, Episode 308

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.

Power Season 2, Episode 8 Recap

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.

Power Season 3

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“.

Shake-My-Head-Reaction-Gif

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:

n3RGs0O

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:

anigif_enhanced-buzz-1537-1377621562-19

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 going over surveillance footage Power Season 3, Episode 308

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.

giphy

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.

Ruiz is not here for Greg and Saxe's offer Power Season 3, Episode 308

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:

Fuck-you-Guardians-of-the-Galaxy-GIF

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 and Ghost Power Season 3, Episode 308

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:

OXjWb

Ghost leaves but unbeknownst to Ghost, Dre is reporting his every move to his nemesis Kanan.

Dre reporting to Kanan Power Season 3, Episode 308

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 is not too happy with Tommy Power Season 3, Episode 308

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.

giphy

Ghost magically appears and puts all the pressure on Hugo.

Tommy and Ghost get the jump on Hugo Power Season 3, Episode 308

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 Kills Hugo Power Season 3, Episode 308

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:

Barack-Obama-Confused-gif

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.

Saxe, Greg and Angela Power Season 3, Episode 308

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:

Image (4) sips-dr-p3-1.gif for post 112297That’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.

MJ Meets With Ghost to talk about Angela Power Season 3, Episode 308

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?”

Image (5) 2411092-229532.gif for post 108685

Greg is still on the case and meets up Medina.

Medina is not here for Greg Power Season 3, Episode 308

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 following the cigarette lead Power Season 3, Episode 308

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.

Angela meets with Tasha Power Season 3, Episode 308

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?

laughing-gif11

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.

Milan takes Tommy to the warehouse Power Season 3, Episode 308

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.

Dre picks up Riq from school Power Season 3, Episode 308

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.

Angela talking to Kate about Tommy's Alibi Power Season 3, Episode 308

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 comes home Power Season 3, Episode 308

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.

” The Right Decision”: Power Season 3, Episode 306 Recap

L

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.

Tommy Sleep in the car Power Season 3, Episode 306

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.

giphy

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 Reluctant to go back into his apartment Power Season 3, Episode 306

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. .

Operation transport Lobos Power Season 3, Episode 306

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.

Power Season 3

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.

Image (2) tumblr_m9nkf6wcxr1qkwbdeo1_500-1.gif for post 112951

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 .

Tasha shocked to see Ghost Power Season 3, Episode 306

Shocked to find that the duo “worked some shit out” over night Tasha asks immediately what the hell is going on?

Power Season 3

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.

Ghost tells Dean to stop following him Power Season 3, Episode 306

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?

Image (3) tumblr_mvgdmhrMYT1s99dcoo1_400.gif for post 110261

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.

Karen stops by to talk to Ghost Power Season 3, Episode 306

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.

Tasha tells Ghost about the Baby Power Season 3, Episode 306

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.

Tasha, Ghost and Tommy Power Season 3, Episode 306

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”.

330x182px-LL-7dc6c095_micheal-jackson-eating-popcorn-theater-gif

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 promising Angela big things Power Season 3, Episode 306

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.

giphy

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.

“Help Me”: ‘Power’ Season 3, Episode 305 Recap

Before we jump into this recap let me just start off by saying this (takes deep breath)… THIS WAS THE BEST EPISODE OF POWER EVER!  Courtney A.Kemp and her amazing team of writers have totally outdone themselves with this episode! Now that I’m done with that let’s get into episode 305 which is accurately titled “Help Me” cause I needed help after watching it.

The Walking Dead Season 6, Episode 3 Memes

Episode 305 starts off with Tommy who is clearly going through it after the assassination attempt on his life by the Koreans last episode that failed thanks to Ghost (he doesn’t know that yet).

Tommy is a mess Power Season 3, Episode 305

Tommy is super paranoid now cause he’s not sure if it was Lobos who called in the hit on him. His paranoid moment is interrupted by his annoying ass girlfriend Holly who still believes it is Lobos though.

Holly trying to convince Tommy Power Season 3, Episode 305

Even after Tommy makes sense of it explaining to her why he’s not sure if it was Lobos she is still adamant that it is and that he must kill Ghost. She tells the poor tortured soul at this point that they HAVE to do this and they will do it together in order to stay alive and not suffer the same fate as their poor dog. Ghost sends Tommy a text, Holly quickly stops Tommy from looking at it and tells him they are not leaving the apartment till they come up with a way to kill Ghost. Unfortunately Tommy doesn’t know she has already taken care of that.

Speaking of Ghost he’s trying to smooth things over with Angela the best way he knows how…

Alot on Angela's Mind Power Season 3, Episode 305

Yes that’s right new week, another sex scene don’t act like y’all are shocked by these things now. Angela’s head is clearly not in the moment and Ghost quickly picks up on it and asks her what’s wrong. Angela is still worried about their relationship and the”obstacles” they face if you want to be specific, Riq hating her , Paz hating Ghost and the fact that he’s still married.

Ghost lisetning to Angela Worry Power Season 3, Episode 305

All Ghost can do is listen in silence, the conversation is interrupted by text to Angela’s phone from her job telling her to come in immediately. The strategy meeting for Ruiz has been pushed up and Angela has to get there a.s.a.p.

Speaking of Ruiz one particular person is not happy that he’s back in town and that is Lobos.

Lobos isn't too happy with Mike Power Season 3, Episode 305

Lobos is extremely worried and lets Mike know it! Mike informs Lobos that Ruiz will be brought to the Federal Building for questioning. Lobos immediately suggests that Mike somehow get Hugo in there to get rid of Ruiz but Mike quickly shoots that idea down. Mike explains to his boss how extremely hard it will be to get Hugo in and let alone out of the building. Mike tells Lobos that they just can’t risk the unnecessary attention on the both of them at the moment. Lobos is growing very impatient with Mike and threatens to send Hugo to either kill him or his daughter first.

Power Season 2, Episode 8 Recap

Our favorite attorney Proctor is back, and gets a call from Ghost.

Proctor gets a call from Ghost Power Season 3, Episode 305

It would seem what Angela said resonated with Ghost and looks like he’s trying to fix things in his new home. Ghost asks Proctor to get some separation papers ready, looks like Ghost is ready to start distancing himself away from Tasha one step at a time. Proctor tries to warn Ghost but he lets him know that it’s just separation for now, not a divorce. This is news that should definitely have Angela like:

oprah audience gif

Speaking of Angela she goes to pay a visit to her old flame now nemesis Greg.

Angela Meets with Greg Power Season 3, Episode 305

Strictly there to defend her man’s honor Angela tries her best to convince Greg to give up his witch hunt for Ghost and just focus on Lobos. Of course Greg isn’t going to do that cause deep down inside he’s still hurt about losing Angela to him and this is the best way to get back at him.

Riq is still on suspension for bringing Angela’s gun to school. Tasha tells her son that his dad is there to pick him up to hang with him for the day.

Riq is not too excited about hanging with his dad Power Season 3, Episode 305

Back in the day that would be exciting news for the Tariq but he’s not really feeling his dad at the moment. Tasha explains to Riq that his dad is really trying to make things work and that he should try too. Riq agrees but he lets her know that he really doesn’t want too. Poor Ghost hears everything from the hallway and I’m sure it was just eating away at his heart to hear his son say that.

The case against Lobos is picking up steam and Mike is looking extremely nervous now that Ruiz is back in town.

Mike is nervous Power Season 3, Episode 305

Angela explain to their boss that their case against Lobos is moving forward and suggests that the priority should be just on him. Mike of course wants more than that!

Greg being slick Power Season 3, Episode 305

He suggests that they also make Ruiz give up the whole operation that includes Ghost and Tommy as well. Of course that only makes matters worse for both Mike and Angela. The boss of course agrees with Greg’s approach to the case, Mike and Angela were both looking like:

anigif_enhanced-buzz-1537-1377621562-19

Holly is still doing her best to try to convince Tommy to take out Ghost.

Holly annoying the hell out of Tommy Power Season 3, Episode 305

Holly clearly doesn’t know how this life of crime thing works and ridiculously suggests that Tommy should just walk up to Ghost and put a bullet in his head. Tommy (he doesn’t want to do it) shuts that idea down basically because he would get caught if he went out and just shot Ghost in broad daylight. The discussion is interrupted by a loud knock on the door. Who could it be?

Tommy's Mom is in town Power Season 3, Episode 305

Basically the last person on the planet Tommy wants to see shows up on his doorstep… his mom! Much to his dismay Tommy asks why is his mom is there and she points out that mortgage is past-due on her house and she had no choice since he handles that. Tommy quickly tells her that he will get Tasha on the phone and she will write up some checks but not before she notices the bullet wound on his arm.

Kate then asks if both him and Ghost took care of the person that did to him, Tommy tells her no and lets her know that he doesn’t rock with Ghost no more. Kate eventually meets Holly and Tommy introduces the two to each other. Kate is not here for Holly at all and even notices she is wearing her mother’s ring. Kate is immediately not fond of Holly at all.

‘Don’t Worry Baby’: Power Season 3, Episode 304 Recap

Episode 304 is by far the season’s most intense episode and keep in mind we’re not even half-way through season 3 YET! The episode opens up with the women in Ghost’s life preparing for the day on separate ends.

Ghost is on the phone with Tasha and the topic of discussion is their son Tariq who got in trouble for bringing Angela’s gun to school.

Ghost on the phone with Tasha Power Season 3 episode 304

Tasha with her tremendous gift of gab rectified the situation without them having to kick Riq out school permanently. Tasha reveals to Ghost that she has to volunteer at the school because of terms of the punishment on top of Riq having to see a therapist. She reassured Ghost that she will talk to Riq and tell him what questions he can answer truthfully and which ones to maneuver around. Tasha asks Ghost if he can pick up Riq from the therapist office but Ghost tells her he can’t do it because he has an important meeting he can’t miss.Tasha points out that the Tariq needs to know his dad is a priority in his life and that he needs show his face at the house every once in a while.

Ghost then asks if they can’t come to him how is he supposed to see them? Tasha lets him know he can see them anytime he wants. They just can’t come to Angela’s house no more, she then adds she don’t need Raina coming home with a switch blade.

laughing-gif11

Well damn! Angela is carefully listening and is feeling sorry for everything that happened.Once Ghost ends the phone call with Tasha she immediately apologizes to him. Ghost knows she is sorry for what happened and she promises it won’t ever happen it again. Angela then brings up the fact her sister Paz is coming over and if she want’s Ghost to cancel?  He tells her no because he knows how important it is to her.

Now what is *sarcastic voice* America’s favorite television couple up to?

 

Holly and Tommy Power Season 3 Episode 304

A very intense sex scene of course, what else would they be doing? While Tommy is going to work, Angela looks like she has a thousand things running through her mind. Well we definitely know for a fact it’s the thought her being pregnant and what measures is Tommy taking to Kill Ghost.

Holly suggests to Tommy that maybe he should hire a hitman to take out Ghost. Tommy scoffs at the idea because Lobos insists that he should be the guy to handle the job. Holly was like:

Power Season 2 Finale Recap

Tommy leaves to do some pickups, Holly picks up her phone and dials up the clinic and starts to weigh her options when it comes to the baby.

Meanwhile in D.C., Jukebox got the crew together and they are going over the plans for their job.

Jukebox laying out the plans Power Season 3 Episode 304

Jukebox is one bad ass character might I add, anyway she’s out laying out the roles for each person. Since Wookie is no longer breathing that leaves one job open and guess who wants it?

Kanan is back on his feet Power Season episode 304

That’s right Kanan and he is looking in much better shape, that definitely spells trouble for Ghost. His presence is not immediately well received as he is questioned by Jukebox’s boys. One even goes as far as to call him “gimpanzee” yikes. Kanan let’s the young man know he better chill cause he has no clue who he’s talking to. Jukebox settles everyone down and says the final decision will come from her and no one else. She dismisses the team, but she has some words for Kanan.

Jukebox Challenges Kanan Power Season 3, Epsiode 304

She question’s if Kanan can even handle a gun and he insists he can, she pretty much checks Kanan by saying she is willing to bet he can’t even jerk off yet.

Power Season 2, Episode 8 Recap

Jukebox leaves and that’s where nurse Candie comes in to administer her own form of rehab. Knowing already Candie has developed a thing for Jukebox’s cousin she want’s to see if Kanan can use his bad hand to pleasure himself. Kanan proves Jukebox wrong during the intense self-love session between both him and Candie, Candie then invites Kanan to assist her. I might add this was a very, very and I do mean VERY revealing scene. Kanan is initially worried about Jukebox, but he shouldn’t be worried about her at all.

Jukebox listening to Candie do her thing Power Season 3 Episode 304

Jukebox is in the other room listening to it all go down. Candie comes upstairs and informs her boo that his hands most definitely work.

Back in NYC, Ghost is meeting with his new head of security Dean.

Dean meeting with Ghost Power Season 3 Episode 304

Dean informs Ghost that after a few days of  personal details that his guys didn’t spot anything that Ghost should be concerned about. Ghost thanks Dean for all of his hard work and decides to keep the personal security for a little bit longer just in case. Dean then asks if there should be anything or someone to keep an eye out for pointing out that it would help his team better keep Ghost safe. Ghost reassured him it’s just club matters and nothing more. I got my eye on this Dean guy cause there is definitely something going on with him.

Angela is still feeling bad about the whole Riq and the gun issue and decides to go see Tasha.

Angela meets with Tasha Power Season 3 episode 304

Knowing the visit is out of the ordinary Tasha immediately assumes the worst and asks if anything has happened to Ghost. Angela tells her that Ghost is fine and that the reason she is there is talk to her, she tells Tasha she got Riq’s record expunged and that she is sorry. Tasha isn’t trying to hear it, she tells Angela that she didn’t do the good deed for Riq or herself but she did it for Ghost. To add insult to injury Tasha tells Angela as long as she stays in “this thing” with Ghost she will be doing things for Ghost for the rest of her life.

‘I Got This On Lock’: Power Season 3, Episode 303 Recap

E

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?

Jukebox Power Season 3

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.

wee-bey-gif

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 😮 .

Jukebox don't play Power Season 3

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 and Her boo Power Season 3

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?

oprah-thinking-gif

Jukebox heads upstairs to check on their guest, and low and behold it’s Kanan laid out in bed.

Kanan back Power Season 3

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.

Angela and Ghost Power Season 3

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.

Greg is watching Power Season 3

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.

Tommy, Holly and Tasha Power Season 3

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 Breaking it down to Holly Power Season 3

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.

Power Season 3 2016

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!

LaKeisha and Tasha talking business Power Season 3

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.

Greg following Ghost Power Season 3

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 makes a discovery about the product Power Season 3

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.

Kanan and Jukebox Power Season 3

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.

“It’s Never Over”: Power Season 3 Episode 302 Recap

W

elp looks like Ghost isn’t as dead as we thought he was! Episode 2 of season 3 opens up with Ghost tossing and turning next to his conveniently naked boo Angela. Ghost clearly has Lobos on the brain after finding out for sure that he is not dead. Ghost is a very smart guy so he surely knows that some form of revenge is coming his way and his family and anyone close to him is in danger.

Ghost is worried Power Season 3With knowledge of Lobos fate finally revealed, Ghost meets up with his star attorney Proctor and asks him to help deliver a message to him.Ghost and Proctor Power Season 3

Proctor still believes Lobos is dead, but Ghost convinces him otherwise carefully without revealing Angela told him. Ghost knows Proctor has powerful connections and he can find out the location of the dangerous drug lord for him.

On the legal front the Angela and Lobos insider Mike are discussing Jefe’s John Doe prosecution case.

Mike and Angela Power Season 3

Mike is doing his best to stall and deflect in Lobos favor so he can help get his boss out of trouble. Angela of course always gets her man literally and figuratively and is woman on a mission. She makes a request that she needs the files from the cases against Lobos in Texas and California which will help their case immensely. Mike’s sneaky self was reluctant at first trying to change her mind on the idea. Realizing that Angela will not give on the idea he eventually agrees to get the files himself pointing out that the request will be filed quicker if he does it.You ain’t low Mike, we onto you bruh.

Image (3) tumblr_lif8me0CUz1qeyiqp.gif for post 105017 With one obstacle avoided Mike immediately bumps into another one though and this time it’s annoying ass Saxe.

Power Season 2, Episode ( Recap

Saxe fills Mike in on his bright idea to solve the mystery of who actually attacked Lobos in custody. Mike knows this is not good if the identity of the assassin is revealed and again tries to deflect.

Saxe and Mike Power Season 3

Saxe makes a good point and Mike realizes that he’s not going to be able to change Saxe’s mind on this. He gives Saxe his blessing on the hope that Saxe is not smart enough to discover anything pertinent that will implicate his boss any further calling the hunt “a waste of time”.

Image (3) Blankstare.gif for post 109767

As you can see Lobos has everyone on their toes even behind bars. Ghost is still a worried mess and makes a call to his inside guy.

Hired Hitman Power Season 3

Ghost eloquently in Spanish informs the assassin that if in fact Lobos is still in that building that he has to find a way to get in there. With that out-of-the-way James hits up Tasha via text telling her “I need to see you”. Oh you know something is about to go down when you get those dreaded “I need to see you” texts from the ex.

Power Season 2 Finale RecapNow what’s our favorite white drug dealing thug up too? Well he’s out with our favorite character (sarcastic voice) Holly searching for their dead dog Belle. 85915-Wendell-Pierce-gif-lWN2

We still honestly wish it was her ass and not the dog who had to sacrifice its life but whatever. While Holly is out posting flyers, Tommy finally checks the message he received from Ghost last episode. Holly comes back into the car and asks him who was that and Tommy quickly tells her nobody.

Holly and Tommy Power Season 3

Tommy is trying his best to keep up this lie about Belle to keep Holly calm. He then offers to replace Belle with another dog, Holly wasn’t here for it at all. She compares Tommy buying her another dog to Tommy dying and her having sex with another guy.

Meek Mill Shouts Out Drake During Concert

Clearly Bell meant the world to Holly and Tommy doesn’t really realize that but that comparison Holly used was dumb as hell.

Image (2) tumblr_n3xvjyImnb1s2pdzeo1_4001.gif for post 112954

Now that scene is over with bootleg Ghost and Tasha it’s time we check in the real version. Ghost immediately thanks Tasha for letting him take the kids to Angela’s house. Ghost and Tasha Power Season 3

Tasha immediately shuts that down and tells him that she didn’t do for him but for the kids. Tasha explains she did it because she doesn’t want them to live without their father in their lives. She quickly asks why Ghost is really in her presence and he presents her with a check for Tommy. Being that he can’t get in contact with his former partner/friend he asks if Tasha can deliver the check for him.The check represents all of the business Ghost and Tommy had together that are now closed. Ghost tells Tasha once he gets the check they are officially done with each other and he is out of the game. Tasha also expresses the fact that Tommy want’s nothing to do with her labeling herself “collateral damage” from their fallout. She reluctantly agrees to deliver the check for the Ghost.

Call Me James: Power Season 3 Episode 301 Recap

P

ower is officially back y’all, and we are so damn excited!

oprah audience gif

Let’s step into the season premiere now shall we? Season 3 opens up with Ghost no no we mean James beginning his new-found life out of the game. James and Angela make their grand entrance into truth, things are much different now that James and Angela no longer have to sneak around. Tasha is out of the picture, James has laid Ghost to rest Angela no longer has a care in the world, well at least she thinks.

This embed is invalid

James isn’t the only one embracing a new role, his former partner/brother Tommy is now the head guy in charge.

Tommy Power Season 3

Last season we found out that Tommy isn’t willing to let the drug game and annoying ass Holly go so easily.

85915-Wendell-Pierce-gif-lWN2

He struck a deal with Lobos as well in order to maintain his flow of product to keep in him in business. The catch is that Tommy has to cancel Christmas on Ghost or not only will he not get any product, his family will be erased as well.

Power Season 3

Holly is still annoying and still very much bored just being cooped up in Tommy’s apartment cause that’s just the Holly we have come to know.

Holly and Tommy Power Season 3

She insists that Tommy gives her something to do to make herself useful but all he wants his very eager and nosy girlfriend to do is lay low and feed the dog. Of course Holly isn’t trying to hear that but has no choice but to listen for now. Tommy and Holly’s little spat is interrupted by a phone call from Julio, looks like Tommy is being thrown into the fire when it comes to being the boss. Tommy and Julio run to a little dispute between rival drug factions, the wolves are now starving because product is low and Ruiz is gone.

Julio and Tommy Power Season 3

Tommy doing his best Michael Jackson impersonation from the “Beat It” video tries to calm down the situation.

tumblr_mqa9mcpDUG1rlhznio1_500

Tommy tries to negotiate a truce between them, but unfortunately they were not trying to hear his white ass and the knives came out.

tumblr_lldl65J5si1qclvq3

YES we said knives, definitely felt like a scene out of West Side Story. Anyway what the poor guy doesn’t realize is that Tommy isn’t a damn punk. He is the one you should always fear, that one crazy white boy that hangs in the hood. Tommy quickly dispatches homeboy with knife and a brawl ensues. Magically the cops show up in record time to defuse the situation and they all scatter like roaches when the light is cut on. Well Tommy you want to be the boss this is what the boss has to deal with.

Image (5) 2411092-229532.gif for post 108685

Tommy’s former partner Ghost  oops we forgot James isn’t walking the straight path alone. With Tommy no longer by his side, the young go-getter Dre has stepped up become Ghost’s protegé.

Dre and Ghost Power Season 3

Dre is very eager to get to work and make some real money, but he’s still not to keen with the fact of making the money slowly and in a legit fashion. James breaks it down to Dre how the club business works as opposed to the drug game. Dre daps it up with his new boss and calls him Ghost, it’s there Dre realizes the James is seriously out the game when James tells him to forget the name Ghost.

After his meeting with Dre, James takes a look at the bloody La Loteria card he was leaving as calling cards that mysteriously wound up in desk. Hmmmm must be still wondering if Lobos is alive or not.

La Loteria Card Power Season 3

James goes outside for a breath of fresh air, he looks up and notices Tommy across the street staring at him.

giphy

The very intense stare down is interrupted by a text from Angela asking James where he is. Once James looks back across the street, Tommy is gone and heads home unable to complete his task of killing Ghost. James links back up with Angela in his office inside Truth. Now you know this wouldn’t be an official episode of Power without a routine Ghost and Angela sex scene.
