Starz series Power Book II: Ghost saw a major plot development as Tariq St Patrick (played by Michael Rainey Jr) decided to team up with queenpin Monet Tejada (Mary J. Blige). Tariq cut a deal with Monet because he needed more money to pay the legal fees to help get his mother Tasha St Patrick (Naturi Naughton). However, could she sell him out when the time is right?

Viewers have already seen Monet’s distrust of Tariq with the businesswoman warning her daughter Diana (LaToya Tonodeo) about the college student.
As Monet pointed out, anyone who spends too long around Tariq winds up in jail or dead.
With Monet already suspicious of Tariq, it won’t be long before she finds out about the St Patricks and their own drug empire.
In an attempt to keep her family safe, Monet may decide to betray Tariq at some point.

For now, Monet allowed Tariq to join her business and sell drugs to wealthy kids at frat parties and the like at Stansfield.
However, in the world of Power it never takes too long for things turn sour.
In the trailer for the forthcoming episode of Ghost titled The Prince, Monet informs her associates: “We have a new business partner, Tariq St Patrick.”
“I’m looking forward to someone who can represent Stansfield properly,” Professor Jabari Reynolds (Justin Marcel McManus) tells Lauren (Paige Hurd) and Tariq.
