'Power' season 6 spoilers: Ghost's need for revenge against Tommy consumes him, but the Feds are closing in
Every ‘Power’ fan knows what double-crossing Ghost (Omari Hardwick) would result in, but no one knows it better than his former BFF Tommy (Joseph Sikora) who decided to go ahead and ice the drug lord, but Angie (Lela Loren) took the bullet instead. When we meet him next, he will exactly be where we expect him to be – seeking revenge for Angie’s death and for being made a fool of by Tommy.
The final season of the Starz series is a culmination of everything that the show has set up since the very beginning. Last few episodes of season 5 saw the fears and paranoia of Ghost and Tommy overpower them and make their choices for them. Meanwhile, Season 6, in which EP and former cast member 50 Cent is making his directorial debut, will see Ghost getting consumed by vengeance.
He is shocked by the underhandedness of the people he held close to him and considered family, and from the newly released trailer for the upcoming season, it definitely seems like he is alienating himself from these people. The official synopsis for season 6 of ‘Power’ suggests that Ghost has made up his mind to get even with Tommy – how that evenness translates in his head is for us to wait and watch.
What we do know is that Ghost has associated revenge with success and we will see him trying to get the “Queens Child Project built to consecrate Raina’s legacy, and finally achieve a thriving legitimate lifestyle with no criminal strings attached” in the final season. He has come to terms with the fact that success, satisfaction, and happiness are things he will have to wrestle out of the world, by whatever means necessary.
Meanwhile, Tommy is plotting his own course on the side, which is definitely going to oppose whatever Ghost is planning for himself. And to top that the Feds are circling in on Tommy and are growing close to convicting him.
“Ghost must remain vigilant toward those wanting to take him down for his past criminal enterprises,” reads an ominous warning from the synopsis for the upcoming season 6, which is set to premiere on August 25, 2019.
