Starz series Power Book II: Ghost premiered over the weekend as the first highly anticipated spin-off series from the Power franchise finally hit screens following a temporary halting due to the coronavirus pandemic. The first episode picked things up from the end of the Power series finale with Tasha St Patrick (played by Naturi Naughton) in prison and Tariq St Patrick (Michael Rainey Jr) attending college. Tariq was desperately trying to help Tasha get out of jail after she went down for the murder of James “Ghost” St Patrick (Omari Hardwick).

Episode one of Power Book II: Ghost was titled The Stranger and saw Tariq trying to drum up enough cash to get some representation for Tasha.
With some work and the help of social media, Tariq managed to get attorney David Maclean (Cliff “Method Man” Smith) to represent her.
As the hearing seemed to come to an end, Tasha was asked to name the accomplice, who helped her to kill Ghost.
In perhaps her most shocking move to date, Tasha declared she was aided by Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora).
