Power Season 6 Episode 6: Tasha is building her empire from scratch and will prove to be more ruthless than Ghost or Tommy
Starz's 'Power' has not been kind to Ghost (Omari Hardwick) this season, what with everyone he cared about turning their back on him, multiple people - including old friends - wanting him dead, his son laying the groundworks to become a drug dealer, and his late girlfriend haunting him. He is struggling to stay afloat, but on the other side, rising like a phoenix from the ashes of everything that is burning down around her, is Ghost's ex-wife, Tasha (Naturi Naughton).
In the previously aired 'King's Gambit' we saw her hustling for the sake of her children, and business. Tasha is hellbent on making it on her own, not as Ghost's wife, but as Tasha and we can't help but respect the hell out of that. As of Season 6 Episode 5, she even has a new employee who is a stripper - for now. If Tasha's plans work out she could be looking down a barrel of fortune herself.
Tasha, as rattled as she is by the people she cannot trust, seems pretty confident about herself, and did not involve even Tommy (Joseph Sikora) when she was shaken down by a new character who wants money from her every week if she doesn't want him burning her place down. She pretended to be scared, but if we know Tasha, we know that she is planning something big, something no one would see coming. Nevertheless, it is clear that she wants to handle her business on her own.
In the upcoming episode, we will see her take more of a front seat when she learns that her son is being held for ransom. As we saw Tariq (Michael Rainey Jr. ) has been messing around with the wrong crowd and need to pay the price for it. Tommy and Ghost have been asked to cough by $2 million to spare his life, and they are scrambling.
In the upcoming episode, titled 'Inside Man' we will see her taking charge because she believes that Ghost is incapable of doing anything to save their son. She has proven to be the scary mama bear when needed and her frustration and anger are also turning into the baddest boss in town. Before the end of Season 6, we will hopefully get to see why she is the most ruthless, ambitious and perseverent among the Ghost-Tasha-Tommy trio.
Season 6 Episode 6 of 'Power' airs on Sunday, September 29 on Starz.
