Rinzy rates it a 5/5 (A).
Power is back!
This is one of the best news of the week. If there’s one thing Power made clear with its exceptional finale last season, it’s that, Hell has seen no fury as a woman scorned. Angela Valdes gave James ‘Ghost’ St. Patrick everything she had, her future, her body, figuratively her soul. James dumped her, technically to protect her. Angela didn’t see it that way and was extremely heartbroken causing her to rebound with her ex, Greg Knox. Greg didn’t see it to the end of the season, naturally, Angela assumed Ghost killed him, and all she set out to do was find any piece of evidence that would link him to the crime scene. Which she did.
Into this new season, a lot has changed. The dynamic of the new season speaks testimony to that. I must confess, Ghost looks good in an orange jumpsuit (Haha!).
Angela got a warrant to search Ghost’s house, which doesn’t really go well. Ghost’s daughter, Raina, felt betrayed by Angela’s prosecution of her father; certainly not to mention Tasha’s hostility to the home-breaker.
There’s this Officer at the prison who’s got it for Jamie, occasionally throwing tantrums in action about Jamie being a cop killer.
Tasha is an extremely loyal wife. After everything that’s happened between her and James she still goes the extra mile to save him from himself. Her resilience to get the $2,000,000 in clean money required for Jamie’s bail shows how much of a loving and loyal wife she always has been.
A new man is in town, his name is John. He’s the lead prosecutor on the Greg Knox murder trial. Yes! The case is moving to trial because of the gravity of the offense. He officially puts Angela off the case. We’ll be spending a lot of time in the courtroom this season, as Jamie’s bail application was rejected. That scene was surprising because of how well the Judge appeared to be flowing with Procter’s words. In as much as I want to feel pity for Jamie, he brought everything happening now upon himself; worse is, Angela confessed to him that she knew he didn’t kill Greg, confirming everyone’s believe that she’s vindictive and just wants to hurt Jamie. I wonder what she’ll to when she finds out her boss is the true murderer. In all, I feel bad for Tasha: She’s the one with a lot to lose if Jamie goes down.
This was a very strong premiere, as usual, Power lives up to expectations. I want to comment on the prevailing theme song of this episode, I loved it.
