Disclaimer: Folks know the drill. Copious amounts of spoilers out here, son.
So, here we are, man. All in all, Power has come to an end and we finally know who killed James St. Patrick. Now, I won’t lie, fam. On the real, I knew who the culprit was all along, bruh. Shit, I’m pretty sure that most of us knew who the culprit was the entire time, son. In any case, after years of being an ungrateful little bastard, it was finally revealed that Tariq St. Patrick, Ghost‘s son and the most annoying character on television, killed his father. All I know is, Tariq’s beef with Ghost never made any fucking sense, people. With that being said, none of his real intentions were cleared up in that final episode.
Look, here’s my issue with Tariq, man. Ok, on face value, I can completely understand a child being upset with their parent for leaving the family. In that case, Tariq has the right to feel a way about Ghost leaving Tasha St. Patrick for Angela Valdes. But, somehow, that resentment led him to a (comical) life of crime and declarations that Ghost “never did anything for [him].” Oh, so I guess living in a penthouse and going to the best schools don’t count. I guess having a carefree life away from the perils that his parents endured doesn’t count. Real talk, this little shit-head never faced any real adversity until he realized that his father loved another woman. *Sigh* In the spirit of Rico from Paid In Full, folks “[get divorced] everyday, B.”
Now, my problem with Tariq’s motive came to a head in this final episode. Listen, right before he shoots Ghost, he says “I wish I could go back, to before you left us for Angela.” So, what’s the real issue, Tariq? Was Ghost always an absentee father (as he falsely claimed), or is Tariq just being a fuckity-fuck because his dad left his mom for a woman who wanted more than a drug dealer’s life. Side note, I never banged with Tasha or Angela, but Tasha couldn’t see past the fucking block, fam. Anyway, the fact of the matter is, Tariq isn’t even sure why he hates his father so much. Regardless, he ends up being the one to take Ghost out of the game.
In the end, Starz can miss me with these Power spinoffs, bruh. Ultimately, if cats like Tasha and Tariq are prominent characters, then I’m ALL of the way out, son. By and by, why would I watch another show with personalities that I can’t fucking stand, man? At the end of the day, Tommy Egan was the only real one on the show. Problem is, he’s dumber than Lloyd Christmas, fam. *Sigh* This show ended up being preposterous, brethren. That is all. LC out.
P.S. Tasha’s fate is hilarious, son. Look, I guess prison is the price to pay for being a shitty ass mother, man. Hell, “teaching Tariq the game” didn’t work out so well, did it? Frankly, Ghost wasn’t shit, but everyone should’ve just let him run off with Angela from the beginning. The way I see it, he would’ve taken care of everyone with those clubs, fam. Alas, pride cometh before the fall, bruh. Good day.
