Tariq scrambles to get ahead of information that could incriminate the drug organization and jeopardize his family's safety. The feds double down and set their sights on a new target to aid their investigation.

Air Date: May 19, 2023

I have seen the 2 leaked episodes last week. They were claimed to be "fake" but so far it has been accurate.

I have been checking my mail to see if Saxe sent me a letter. So far, nothing. I'll keep checking.

Who mailed the letters to Monet, Jenny and 2-Bit? Must have been Saxe's niece. Did Saxe have different letters in case he was killed in a plane crash or some other way? Seems no matter how he died, Tariq and Tasha were going to burn. 

Tariq taking a swing at Cane was funny. Tariq would never win in a fist fight against Cane. Cane thinks Tariq acts like T'Challa. Ha!

Diana is searching Tariq's room and didn't take the stack of cash under his mattress, but the folder was more intriguing??!!!! The fact that Tariq keeps money under a mattress is confusing.

Brayden can't move out of the way of the SUV approaching and let the door hit him?  I applaud him for going to the hospital on his own and no family members were there to be with him.

Tariq's lying to Tate finally caught up to him and it burns Weston Holdings. 

Saxe's body isn't cold, and the NYPD already determined Theo acted alone and Davis had no part in it. What?!!!!!

See ya! Last of the Castillio family. Your time on the show will not be memorable. Why were they even on the show?  

No cameras on the street to see Dru and Cane pump gas in the building? And he Castillos must have no friends in that neighborhood where Dru can climb to the roof and he and Cane can hook up hose to gas them. That execution took time and the Castillos got no warning from anyone. Good Riddance.

Cane didn't hear Evelyn tell Dru it was Monet. He was not that far from them. Cane may need to get his hearing checked. He couldn't hear shit in Meeca's apartment too.

When did Cane get religious to do the sign of the cross over Evelyn.

Evelyn wasn't out the door for one second and Monet told Cane "They know we killed Gordo". Evelyn could have been eavesdropping by the door. Unreal!

Jenny with her fake tears for Saxe. 

I "almost" felt bad for Papa Weston. Seemed like a beaten man. But it's his company and should have known what was going on.

He unknowingly gave Brayden the final push to go kill Lucas.

Keke escapes with ease. Doesn't seem right. She was so full of herself when she and Lucas confronted Brayden about their scheme. 

Obi "the Dentist" can't get green cards for his family on his own?? He needs Tariq for this task??!!!

I knew Jenny and Blanca had nothing on Effie regarding Lauren's death. They just thought she would flip by holding her. They should be fired.

The last part of Tommy and Tasha appearing was a surprise.

I can't believe Tommy showed up to kill Tasha, just from a letter from Saxe. It's nice for drama but Tommy driving all the way from Chicago like that doesn't make sense for his character. Did he not consider this to be a trap from the Feds??

Yaz running around in the streets at night didn't make sense. These agents can let Lauren escape many times and Yaz just leave unaccompanied with no problem.  And these agents just let Tommy get the drop on them after being warned danger is coming. The worst protective detail in TV history.

Did Estelle not see Tommy at all or the dead bodies when she went out to look for Yaz? Was she covering for Tommy and not tell the Marshals. Wouldn't the agents find 2-Bits car and call him in for questioning or find Yaz sitting in the car? The sequence of events was puzzling. 

Lucas expected the FBI to believe the entire Ponzi was conducted by "intern" Tariq and Brayden under Crash Coin? Hopefully, that knock on the head by hitting the side of the building out some sense in him before he hit the BMW.

Too bad for the owner of the BMW Lucas landed on. 

Brayden prints can be easily lifted from the railing, and he could be easily seen leaving the building but of course the NYPD will miss these clues (like Saxe's murder) and say Lucas killed himself.

Cane Clark Kent in glasses was funny. 

Tamekia is not in law enforcement anymore and can still get agents moving quickly from one call. 

Monet was ready to beat all their asses "Let that bitch go......"

Wow! I had no idea!

I'm really starting to wonder why I watch this show. None of it makes any sense.

We got a surprise visit from Tommy. Are we to assume that Saxe told Tommy where Tasha was just like he told 2-bit?

Those letters confirm what we already knew about Saxe, that he was a little bitch ready to snitch to anyone who would listen.

I'm sure she wasn't looking for the folder... so what exactly was she looking for? Something that says he's working with the feds? Because she looked like she believed him when he said he wasn't working with the feds, but if she believed him, why would she feel the need to sneak into his room?

Why would Tariq keep that file under his mattress? Why didn't he get rid of it????????? Did he also want insurance on Monet?

And now she scared? I just didn't buy it.

If she was that scared, she should have jumped ship when she found out, and since she had that valuable piece of information, have Uncle Weston give her a GLOWING reference to her next place of work.

They do have something on her for Lauren's death... but they have nothing on her for all the other drug stuff and any other deaths. They were trying to leverage Lauren's "death" to flip her to snitch on everyone else. They'd give her some sort of leniency (whatever that looks like) for Lauren if she snitches on the Tejadas and Tariq, the muders, and the whole drug operation.

Asa much as I appreciated the appearance from Tommy, it just seems a little too convenient.

No, he didn't expect them to believe that. He wasn't going to pin the Ponzi scheme on Tariq and Brayden. He was going to let Papa Weston and Keke take the heat for the Ponzi scheme and he was going to snitch on Tariq's drug operation if they give him immunity on the Ponzi scheme.

Yes. This episode and next week's were leaked on YouTube. 50 and others are blaming Starz for this.

They weren't clean viewing but you can tell what was happening. I think they are still up if you want to see.

Next week, It will be explained how Tommy knew. I will not go further.

Yes. Saxe was wrong for what he did. What if Yaz and Big Momma were killed because of this.

She needed some evidence to bring back to Monet. I guess because it was under the mattress with money it meant it had value. IDK. I did think Tariq was going to burn it when he took it from Davis.

I don't either. Then she tells Brayden she is an innocent victim. Lucas used her. And Brayden fell for it.

They don't have anything on Effie other than Lauren's word. In episode 2, Jenny told Lauren she has "no hard shred of evidence" on Effie trying to kill Lauren. It was just "hope" on their part to arrest Effie and she would break down. They blocked her from calling her lawyer.

Way too convenient. Also, if there was a threat, why not just move them out of the house to another location. Tommy would never have found them. It made no sense.

You're right. He was going to blame his brother. Lucas got what he deserved.

My biggest question is why would 2-bit get a letter? 🤣

I'm so confused about that. Why 2-bit? What was so special about 2-bit?

Also, refresh my memory. Why was Tommy going after Tasha in the first place?

2 Bit is the only side character left from the original. They killed everybody else. I guess these writers think bringing him back for nostalgic purposes would make the fans happy. I don't see it!

In court, Tasha blamed whole operation on Tommy which caused Tommy to fake his death and leave town. That is why Tasha is in witness protection. Since then, Tommy wants to kill her.

Then that is the time for Jenny to show how good at "lawyering" she is. Sometimes a prosecutor doesn't dealt the best hand. They have to work with only circumstantial evidence. They knew Lauren was knocked unconscious and placed in the passenger seat. They knew the car was pushed into the river with her inside of this stolen vehicle. The one thing they couldn't do with what they had was put Effie at the scene. Lauren is able to say Effie is the one that knocked her unconscious. If Jenny is as good as a lawyer as she claims to be, then she has enough -with Lauren's testimony- to paint the picture to a grand jury and to a trial jury that Effie is one that attempted to murder Lauren and left Lauren to die. Was Brayden not questioned for Lauren's case? He's clearly a valuable witness. He say Effie knocked Lauren unconscious and also Effie put Lauren in the car.

When Effie pushed the car in the water, she wasn't wearing gloves and the car didn't fully submerge in the water. I always thought her fingerprints were the only proof they had on her. But it was never brought up. The writers can use Lorenzo's fingerprints ib a plot but use not Effie's in this case. So inconsistent on them.

It would all come down to Lauren's word against Effie's word. Brayden wouldn't be a good witness as he would have to implicate himself holding a gun to Lauren.

Anyway, I won't say anymore. As I have seen how it played out next week.

He'd be a good witness for Jenny regardless. He'd be a bad witness for himself and bad for Effie. He can attest to Effie putting Lauren in the car, and can possibly describe the car Effie was in.

...and yes, it is very inconsistent of them. Have they ever been consistent?

Yeah- I don’t have any sympathy for Keke. She actively participated in this illegal scheme, knowing if they got caught she would be the one they would pin it all on. From the dialogue, Lucas didn’t pressure or coerce her into this (which would’ve made her more morally ambiguous). Nah- you wanted to feel powerful and equal to this rich white dude you were fucking so you committed a FELONY and threw away everything your parents sacrificed for you. Girl you are not as smart as you think you are. 
 

Brayden isn’t morally corrupt, but you can’t be half a gangster- which is what everyone keeps telling him. I said to my Mom “please tell me he scanned Lucas’ signature on that confession so that it looks like Lucas signed it and he can take the fall after all??”

Keke is scared of getting caught. Not actually committing the crime. It would’ve been better if she had known about it and didn’t actively do anything because she didn’t want to fuck up her career, OR Lucas was blackmailing her. You can’t cry about the crimes you willing choose to commit!
 

Wasn’t I asking a few weeks ago where Nautri was?? Are they setting up the opening of Power Book IV?

Have we heard anything about the new season? Release date?

She always knew the risks. There was always a risk that they would get caught. I kinda feel like she had to be mentally prepared for that possibility. Why was she not prepared for that? because it seems like she wasn't prepared for it. It's like she's panicking and unprepared over an event that she absolutely knew was a possibility.

Yes we are in agreement. So why is she crying and panicking NOW?? She didn’t have an exit plan?

 

Power Book IV has finished filming but no air date last I checked.

Great eppy.
