On the previous episode of Power, the tensions continue to escalate between Ghost and Tommy. Ghost has warned Tommy not to date the employees from the club, yet Tommy brings a waitress to meet Ghost’s family. There is also trouble brewing in the streets as one of NYC’s most prominent drug dealers was nearly killed by a female assailant. This is the same woman who has tried to rob two of Ghost’s workers, and it’s obvious she’s a part of a bigger plan.
When this episode of Power comes on Kanan (played by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson) gets a visit from his attorney. The young woman informs Kanan that he might be getting out of jail sooner than everyone expects. If this happens, Kanan could demand control of his turf from Ghost and Tommy. Later Kanan’s young son Shawn comes to visit.
The young man gives his father the word on the streets and Kanan tells Shawn to “take what you want.” Unfortunately the thing Shawn wants is Ghost’s wife Tasha.
There is a feud brewing between Tommy and Ghost and Holly the waitress could be the straw to break the camel’s back. Ghost warned Tommy not to date the cub’s employees but Tommy brings the young woman to Ghost’s home where she steals jewelry from Tasha. As if this isn’t enough, she discovers $1.25 million in cash in Tommy’s apartment. The woman is furious that Tommy lied to her and she storms out of his apartment.
Another Day Another Problem
After Ruiz is nearly killed Tommy has to visit the drug lord to prove it wasn’t his operation that had him hit. Tommy realizes his life is in danger, but he has no idea the feds are recording the entire conversation. Unfortunately, the tape is very poor quality, but FBI forensics will attempt to improve the sound. Meanwhile Ghost is with his mistress once again. The man even blows Tommy off instead of listening to the report from his business partner.
On a hunch Tommy swings by a favorite spot of Ghost and Angie. He pretends the encounter is just by chance when he pops up at the couple’s two favorite milkshake spot to go to when they were kids. Tommy plays ignorant to their affair and blatantly mentions Ghost’s wife Tasha. The brief conversation reminds Angie that she’s the mistress, number two in Ghost’s life. She’s obviously very bothered as she and Ghost end their date.
Good Thief Bad Move
As good a thief as Holly is, she doesn’t anticipate things well. She actually wears the stolen ear rings to Tasha’s birthday celebration. When confronted, Holly says Tommy bought the jewelry and Tommy covers for her to get back on her good side. Furious, Tasha accepts the story, though she’s still quite suspicious.
Bonny and Clyde
In the next scene, Tommy and Holly finally sit down and talk. Holly admits to being a kleptomaniac who can’t help but to steal. Tommy has to explain the stash in his home so he admits to being one of NYC’s top drug dealers. This twisted couple is sure to illuminate the screen with their passion but the relationship spells trouble for everyone involved.
Ghost isn’t faring any better with his romance life as he stops by Angie’s place unannounced. After a brief conversation, they end up in bed together again. Unfortunately the realness of the situation hits home when Ghost has t leave Angie’s apartment and go home. Despite the her pleads, Ghost has to leave. He does however, make the promise that all married men eventually make to their mistresses “It won’t always be like this.”
In the last scene of this episode, Tasha is in the apartment with her driver Shawn. The young man gives her a pair of ear rings, but Tasha refuses the expensive gifts. Shawn is apparently taking his father’s advice as he tells Tasha he doesn’t like the way Ghost treats her.
The Plot Thickens
Angie is analyzing the tape of Tommy and Ruiz’s meeting after the FBI improved the quality. She still wants to find NYC’s top supplier and she gets a major clue.
She clearly hears Ruiz say the name of his supplier Ghost. Fortunately for James St.Patrick, Angie doesn’t know that he’s Ghost and the illusive supplier from whom she’s looking. However it might not take much effort to find out the man she wants to incarcerate is the same man with whom she just made love. This is the perfect ending to a great episode that has everyone longing for more.
