Starz drama Power Book II: Ghost may only have premiered last week but the writers are already ramping up the action. Tasha St Patrick (played by Naturi Naughton) will be battling to save her life in the courtroom after Cooper Saxe (Shane Johnson) brought kingpin charges against her which carried the death penalty. Her legal team and attorney Davis Maclean (Cliff “Method Man” Smith) will be trying to put their defence case together.
US network Starz has dropped a short synopsis and the promo trailer for the forthcoming instalment which will see Tasha under fire.
The episode summary reads: “Tariq [Michael Rainey Jr] struggles with the weight of providing for his mother’s mounting legal defense while juggling the rigors of Ivy League life.”
While the teaser sees Tasha confronted by Davis and investigator Paula (Sherri Saum), who tells her they need something to bolster her case.
Tasha demands to be put on the stand in a bid to convince the jury of her lies.

Tasha is continuing to build up alliances in prison as she struggled to survive.
On the outside, Tariq is struggling to cover the legal fees and says: “I need a lot more money than this to help my mum.”
