Ah, the second season finale episode of Power is here which means it will be the last time I will have to endure this theme song.
All week long, people were shocked by Kanan killing his own son Shawn. I haven’t been anywhere that people weren’t talking about Power.
After two solid seasons any and all conversations and comparisons to Empire should cease. IMO the writing of Power is on the level of Scandal – until Olivia got kidnapped. [Scandal really jumped the shark with that one. As of now, Courtney Kemp Agboh > Shonda Rhimes.
This finale episode wraps up every story line with a bow and takes us right into a crazier season three story line.
In this episode we start off with a mysterious hit-man who kills Drifty, one of Ghost’s distributors. The killer leaves a playing card of “La Arana” on his back.
Angela appears to be having mixed emotions about Jamie/Ghost as she packs up all of the gifts that she’s received from him. We find out Angela has been fired from the Fedz.
Ghost’s lawyer Porter suggests that Ghost should walk away ASAP if he wants to get away clean which means cutting ties with everyone he knows.
What happened to Julio in this episode? I don't know but what did he think about Shawn getting killed?

Ghost being the manipulator he is even blames Tommy for being so quick to show Kanan the new business which makes Tommy feel like a sucker.
Mike of The Fedz meets with Greg and questions his relationship with Angela. Mike has come to the conclusion that Greg is a jealous ex-boyfriend who was tailing Jamie because of Jamie and would do anything to throw him under the bus – especially since he has no evidence. Greg also finds out that Angela filed a formal complaint against him and they suspend him and take his gun and badge. Greg isn’t too happy about this.

Tommy tells Kanan that he believes Ghost set him up. Kanan believing Tommy is going against Ghost tells Tommy that Ghost and Tasha set him up too which now makes them buddies. Kanan also reveals to Tommy that Ghost didn’t kill the Pink Sneaker Assassin as Ghost told Tommy.
Tasha drops by Jamie’s hotel looking very seductive. Shawn would approve but he’s not here anymore. Tasha wants to know if it’s over between him and Angela. Ghost wants to know of it’s over between her and Shawn. Awkward.
