Power Season 4 Recap

The Power season 4 finale set up the events that will take place in season 5. Ghost, Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora), and Kanan (Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson) get together with a common mission on their minds: To hunt down and kill the treacherous and murderous Dre (Rotimi Akinosho).

After all, Ghost’s eldest daughter, Raina (Donshea Hopkins) was killed by Ray Ray (Marcus Callender), a crooked cop looking for her twin brother, Tariq (Michael Rainey Jr.). Unknown to Ghost and his partners, Tommy and Kanan, Tariq saw his sister’s death and is now looking for her killer.

After some hesitation, Tariq confronts Ray Ray and shoots him, thereby avenging Raina’s death. Tommy, Ghost, and his wife Tasha (Naturi Naughton) arrive at the scene of the crime and clean up to destroy the evidence.

However, a bullet is left behind which the newly promoted head of the criminal division, Angela Valdes (Lela Loren), and her team of investigators discover. So, things are going to get tougher for the St. Patrick family in season 5.
