Power 2014

Ghost makes a major decision in an attempt to become a legitimate businessman.

Last week, we  saw quite a few things unfold. Ghost and Tommy drifted further apart as friends especially after Ghost had placed in a position where he had to kill one of his own friend Rolla. Ghost and Tasha barely talk at this point, while Angela starts sacrifice things in her life and career in order to be with Ghost. The most important revelation though is Kanan being the one that was behind all the hits on Ghost's and Ruiz's crew, as he's the one that hired the out of town Latina assassin.

The finale starts off with Ghost going through the emotions of killing his long time friend, though he's having a rough time, he's now more eager than ever to distance himself from the life. He begins to plan, the first thing is to setup in Miami with a second Truth club.

Lobos is Paranoid

Ghost's plug (connect) Lobos is paranoid and for good reason because the Feds have been monitoring his movements, so instead of his usual routine of meeting with Ghost and Tommy, he has them abducted,  bagged their heads to drive them to a secret location.

Lobos' California business has been compromised so half his profits have vanished,  so he asks Ghost to deliver double the amount of product they usually do. Ghost has his reservations while Tommy is eager to take on the new work, Lobos takes notes of the inconsistency between Tommy and Ghost and urges Ghost to think about it. They leave the meeting to make plans to see if expanding is a possibility.

Tommy first reaches out to Ruiz to see if he wants to take on new work, Ruiz says no unless Tommy is willing to supply him with weapons and protection. Tommy takes the news back to Ghost, he's is uneasy about the whole thing so he leaves it up to Tommy to decide, who decides that they're going to get into the gun trafficking business.

Ghost and Tasha Angela

Things are pretty fickle with Ghost and Tasha at the moment, Tasha's mom tells her she needs to start making plans. She does just that by going to the bank and opening a private bank account in her name only, while Ghost makes plans to go to Miami with his love Angela who's all on board to go. Before leaving their home Ghost tells Tasha they should talk when he gets back from Miami, he goes to Angela's apartment to her that he believes Tasha knows he's seeing someone else.

Angela is also making some drastic decisions in order to be with Ghost, she gets into a fight with her sister about her going to Miami with Ghost. She takes back her apartment keys from her sister and says ghost needs a key, she doesn't.

While Ghost is traveling around the city handling business, he's completely unaware that the Latina assassin is hunting him and came within inch of killing him. The thing that saved him is the fact that Kanan's son was there, and Kanan doesn't want him hurt.

Tommy and Holly

Ironically Ghost isn't the only one that's been slipping, as his partner Tommy is making one of the biggest mistakes, as he;s completely brought the club waitress Holly fully into the fold. He even reveals Jaimie's street name Ghost and has decided to bring her into the business.

Angela Still Persistent

Even though the case has been closed in the East Coast and the Lobos prosecution is being planned for California, Angela still thinks she can find the find the connect.  She once again taps her CI Nomar for more information. Nomar revealed that he knows who the connect is, after coming face to face with Tommy who he believes is Ghost.

He tells Angela that he's going to need witness protection, which promise will happen.

Favor For A Favor

Although Ruiz originally turned down Tommy's offer to move twice as much product, he calls Tommy in a angry tone  ans tells him if he does this one thing for him, he'll have his back forever. Ruiz finds out about Nomar being with his under aged daughter, after finding a d**k pic from Nomar in his daughter's phone.

He wants Tommy to kill him because the hit can't come from a Latino, Tommy being white makes him the perfect candidate.

The Best Laid Plans Often Go Wrong

Things seem to be going well for everyone involved, which is when everything started to fall a part. Ruiz's daughter texts Nomar letting him know that her father knows what's being going on, he quickly flees the scene where had planned on meeting up with her one last time. Tommy sees the whole thing and pursues him, while running Nomar calls Angela to tell her that Ruiz is after him and he needs hide, he leaves a message of where she can find him.

As soon as he gets there, Tommy pops up behind him, they get into struggle and Tommy lands two fatal wounds. While Norma lies there dying Tommy hear someone coming who happens to be Angela, Tommy hides and waits for his opportunity to escape before the authorities show up.

Meanwhile at the club, things are going very well with the big party the Truth club is hosting, but things take a violent turn. Holly and Ghost get into an argument as she  reveals that she's going to be in business with him and Tommy, while they're arguing the Latina assassin managed to make her way into the club and chooses the moment of the argument to take a shot a Ghost which ends up hitting Holly in the back.

This singular even causes Ghost's club owner aspirations to go up in smoke.

Meanwhile Tommy has followed Angela to her apartment, where she's sitting down looking at her packed luggage for Miami.

Kanan who's responsible for most of the chaos, gets out of prison, and gets picked up by his son Shawn. He's tells Shawn that his loyalty is to him now.

Ghost walks out the club with Holly's blood all over his suite, he immediately gets on the phone and calls Lobos. He tells him he wants to take on the new influx on product, not just double but as much as he can provide.

The show ends with Ghost saying “I'm going to to be the biggest drug dealer in new York.”
