'Power' fan recap: Sex all over the city

Season 2 | Episode 7 | “You’re Not the Man” | Aired July 25, 2015

After weeks of charging ahead at full speed, Power finally gave us a chance to breathe. With Holly gone and Angela seemingly back on his side, things are starting to look up for Ghost.

It’s brunch time for Mr. and Mrs. St. Patrick, who meet to go over his performance evaluation. He receives a passing grade for “hittin’ it right” with Angela, but that’s still not enough to change her mind about pursuing the case. If he ever wants to ensure the safety of his family and his business, Ghost will need to outsmart her.

Tommy, on the other hand, is a complete mess. Holly’s abrupt exist was the Jenga piece that toppled his tower, and everything is about to come crashing down. Ghost checks in on his childhood friend and notices his disheveled state, agreeing to take some of the load while Tommy works to get his head back in the game. Lobos is headed to town and there is no room for error.

That’s going to be difficult with Angela hot on their heels. In court, she testifies (more like lies) that she has probable cause to arrest Tommy, citing proof that indicts him as Ghost. It looks like Ghost really did a number on her—she’s still protecting him. However, the conflicted prosecutor was brutally rebuffed by the judge, who demanded more evidence. A few surveillance photos that show Tommy’s car near the crime scene and a really stern voice just aren’t compelling enough. Where are the fingerprints? To take down Tommy, she’s gonna need Holly.

Greg is excelling at this creeper-from-afar gig. He watches Tommy load a van with what he thinks is evidence that will indict him. When cops pull them over, however, all they find is Tommy’s acute sense of humor. It’s back to square one for #TeamFeds.

After sweeping her apartment for bugs, Tasha meets with divorce attorney and learns that she’s out of options. If she walks out on Ghost, she gets nothing. Instead, she’ll need to stay with him and break it off with Shawn. That’s easier said than done because after one look in those puppy brown eyes, her clothes were off and they were grinding to some sexy hip-hop in the shower. Smooth.

Angela is hell-bent on finding Holly, but her search comes up empty, which can only mean one thing: She’s dead. She demands answers from Ghost and accuses him of covering for Tommy. He denies everything, and Angela prepares to leave for good until he stops her. Angela thinks she’s gained the upper hand, but Ghost is one step ahead. He knows where Holly is and has her under his control. Angela is getting nothing from her.

Plagued by paranoia, Tommy meets up with Ghost to voice his hysterical concerns. Angela is getting way too close for comfort and they need to stop her for good. Ghost knows exactly what he means by that and enlists Tasha’s help to stop him. If he kills Angela now, all eyes will be on them, and with Lobos lurking nearby, now is not the time. To get his mind off of things, Tasha helps Tommy hook up with a pair of redhead friends. What follows next is one sloppy threesome, in which Tommy almost gives away Holly’s dog. Tommy could really use a life coach right about now.

Angela finds Holly in a seedy motel in New Jersey and, as predicted, doesn’t get anything from her. Holly says she’s done with Tommy and lied about Jamie being Ghost. Angela has lost her witness and Ghost finally took care of that pesky thorn in his side.

Ghosts visits Stern’s soon-to-be ex-wife after seeing a mysterious company called Ravenna Holdings show up on Truth’s documents. He learns that Ravenna was the name of their infant daughter, who died before she turned a year old. It looks like Stern has been hiding some of his assets, and now his wife is going to make him pay, big-time.

You know how Kanan has been notably missing for several weeks? Well, now we know why. Dre informs him of the news he’s been waiting for: Voldemort, I mean Lobos, is back in town. Business is about to pick up.

Meanwhile, Ghost and Angela continue their steamy affair and things settle down between them … almost. While he is asleep, Angela sneaks into the bathroom for some midnight espionage. She’s bugged his phone, and now she can see all of his messages. Your move, Ghost.

Power airs Saturdays at 9 p.m. on Starz.
