Power Season 3 Episode 2 Review: It's Never Over

at . Comments

Sounds like the Power Gods heard me last week and figured out they had a Tasha problem. And the solution was....Holly?

If you've been following these reviews at all, you know I loathe Holly more than anyone on this show (with Kanan in a close second). But somehow the idea of Tasha and Holly teaming up to help Tommy with the drug business has me extremely intrigued. 

If there was any doubt that Tommy was losing it, Power Season 3 Episode 2 put those doubts to rest.

Loose Ends - Power

Tommy is a shell of himself without Ghost. He was NEVER supposed be the number one guy and everyone knows it. He played second fiddle to Ghost practically his entire life and now that he's on his own he's crumbling under the pressure. 

He was my brother. My whole life. My family.

Tommy

Was that not the saddest thing? I knew the Ghost and Tommy divide was going to be intense, but I didn't expect a drug fueled violent breakdown, that lead to a tear filled confession about just how messed up he was about losing his best friend. 

We're only two episodes in and I'm not going to lie, I HATE that Ghost and Tommy are so separated. I understand that there has been a fracture in their relationship since the first episode of the series, but seeing it actually play out is heartbreaking. How are they going to find their way back to one another?

Ghost has more issues than Tommy, though, as he's trying to navigate his club situation, keep Dre in line, find Lobos and introduce his kids to Angela. So, yeah, it was a busy week to be Ghost. 

I'm not really sure I get Dre or his new place on the show right now. He's like a smaller, mouthier Sean at this point, but without the killer smile. He's ridiculously unappreciative of the opportunity Ghost has give him and he takes pretty much every chance he gets to complain. Perhaps Kanan's eventual return will make his more interesting? A girl can hope.

My small frustration with the season thus far is it's been a little slow in comparison to the past two seasons. There's just too many people and situations I don't care for right now. Am I alone in this feeling?

The Lobos problem is going in all kinds of directions, as Sandoval is looking to kill the Lobos case and Ghost is looking to find Lobos. 

Proctor: Oh man. You gotta teach whatever it is you know about women because she should hate your breathing guts by now.
Ghost: Well she would, if I keep going to her for information. That's why I need you.

Proctor was back, as Ghost needed someone besides Angela to help him track down the drug kingpin. It's only a matter of time before the wheels fall off the Ghost/Angela train, because the two of them are already showing signs of fracture.

Angela meeting the kids could not have been more awkward. And because Ghost is loyal to Ghost first and everyone else second, he even left Angela with his kids at one point to meet up with Tommy! Um, clearly Angela has no clue how to take care of children, Ghost! 

I love the easiness of their relationship right now, but I still feel like there's a wall between them, evidenced by the tossing in turning in the beginning of the episode and the fake sleeping at the end. I wonder if they can ever reach a place of true trust and acceptance of one another. 

It's hard to be a Ghost fan most days, but I do find myself rooting for the antihero most of the time. And I'm still on his bandwagon, but he makes it so, so hard.

Everything Else You Need To Know

  • Tasha and Angela FINALLY had their moment and it was very uneventful. I'm not sure I would have been nearly as calm as Tasha was. 
  • The guy that stabbed Lobos has now been stabbed and killed. They're going to drag this Sandoval double agent thing out all season. 
  • Does anyone else not really care about the club shenanigans? 
  • Tommy is NEVER going to kill Ghost or truly attempt to kill Ghost. Can we stop pretending now?
  • Might this be the season Ghost's children really get something to do? 

How are you guys liking the season so far? Can Holly and Tasha work together? How much longer until Ghost and Tommy meet?

As always, leave me a comment and lets talk it all out in the comments!
