How to watch the midseason premiere of 'Power Book II: Ghost'? Here's what to expect in Episode 6 'Good Vs Evil'
Last we saw of Tariq St. Patrick, he was in big trouble after Cooper Saxe (played by Shane Johnson) got a recording of his graveside confession. What's more, after Saxe played the recording to Davis MacLean, the slick lawyer with a need to win every case, agreed to help put Tariq in jail.
In Season 1 Episode 6, we are going to find out if MacLean has really switched sides or if he is about to pull a fast one on Saxe. All this and more is going to play out when the series returns at 8 pm on Starz tonight on Sunday, December 6.
In case you need a refresher on what all has happened, Starz will air a 'Power Book II: Ghost' marathon starting on Dec. 6 at 2:45 p.m. ET, which will replay the first five episodes of Season 1.
Then it is off to the races with the new Episode 6, for which Starz has released an 'official synopsis'. It states: "Tariq’s hands are tied, fearing that fully letting Brayden in on their arrangement with the Tejadas has put him on a violent collision course with Cane, who demonstrates the price paid for using his name. And tired of her authority being challenged, Monet lays down the law for Dru and Diana. Davis and Saxe’s agreement is tested when they call their first witness to the stand, a face from the past that may know enough about the St. Patricks to draw Tariq into the ire." Most of the synopsis runs on predictable lines -- from Tariq figuring out just how dangerous the Tejadas are, especially the brutish Cane, to the internal Tejada family squabbles.
But the one thing that piques interest is of course how Saxe and Davis will collaborate and why the first witness they call to the stand has the power to test the behind-closed-doors agreement they have.
The return of Tommy Egan has been hinted at by showrunner Courtney Kemp. She suggested that since Tasha lied about Tommy killing her husband James 'Ghost' St. Patrick, Tommy might pop in to clear his name. Tasha's lie to protect Tariq will come to naught if he does.
Besides this Tariq will also have his hand full with his complicated love life, with Diana on one hand, and fellow Stansfield student, Lauren, on the other. When Tariq will swing by Lauren's dorm room their flirty banter will turn into a conversation about whether people are fundamentally good or bad. Lauren will decide that clothing is bad and shedding some of it is good. In the meantime, Diana also has her sights on Tariq and is prone to jealousy.
Tasha is losing her mind inside jail as she questions Tariq about whether Davis can have any way of knowing who actually killed Ghost. Tariq replies to the negative, unaware that both Saxe and Davis have heard his confession. Meanwhile, Riley continues snooping on Tariq, this time to prove that Brayden has nothing to do with Tariq's shady deals but gets caught -- possibly by Tariq himself. We will also see Cane clashing with Monet about whether or not to continue the partnership with Tariq, jeopardizing his drug sourcing.
'Power Book II: Ghost' Episode 6 will air on Sunday night, December 6, at 8 pm ET on Starz.
