'Power' fan recap: Ghost is dead; long live James St. Patrick

Season 2 | Episode 10 | “Ghost Is Dead” | Aired Aug 15, 2015

Are you fully recovered yet? Power‘s shocking season finale brought the drama, with new alliances, friendships ended, and a plot twist so slick it nearly went unnoticed (we’re looking at you, Sandoval). But most important, James St. Patrick crafted a clever plan to bury his alternate identity for good—and it may have worked.

With many questions answered and plenty more raised, season three couldn’t come sooner. Until then, here are the biggest moments we just couldn’t get over:

  • Ghost is dead … sort of! For two seasons, James St. Patrick struggled to break free from the drug world, and now it looks like his wish finally came true. Acting on the advice of his new lawyer/confidant Joe Proctor to cut all ties with those who know his true identity, St. Patrick disguises himself as the “La Araña” killer and successfully assassinates members of Lobos’ crew. With the blame on a different enemy and all potential witnesses handled, he is free to leave Ghost behind and focus on a fresh start with Angela—who welcomes him with open arms. But how long will they get to live their happily ever after?
  • Creeper Greg is creepier than ever. After earning a suspension for stalking following Angela, Greg does little to help his cause by cornering her at her apartment. The disgraced agent vows to prove that James St. Patrick is Ghost, and take her down in the process. That determination to expose the truth would be admirable if it were any other person. It’s not you, it’s me. I just don’t like creepy people.

The Creep by The Lonely Island

  • Angie is in the clear. After Ghost interferes once again and Isabel Ruiz fails to show up for court, her case is thrown out and she is free to continue breaking the rules for the greater good. Relax, Angie. It’s not like you have an unhinged agent coming after you or anything.
  • Kanan is dead … just kidding! Picture it: A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, on the planet Mustafar, a Jedi turned Sith Lord crosses over to the Dark Side and engages his former mentor in a dramatic battle to the death on a lava-filled terrain. That’s basically what happens here, except the fight takes place in an abandoned warehouse, there are no cool light sabers, and Ghost is severely lacking in the fluffy mullet department. Kanan might not have robotic arms, but he seems to have absorbed all of Anakin’s worst traits. His selfishness justified murdering his son in cold blood (because only a Sith deals in absolutes), and his ego most definitely contributed to his downfall (because “you always talk too f—ing much”). Oh, and he is supposedly burned alive (because fire and a stab wound to the gut cannot kill a bitter old thug). Aloe vera can’t heal those deep wounds.

From Revenge of the Sith

  • Sandoval is in bed with Lobos?! Not literally (you never know), but they do appear to be working together. When he visits the flamboyant drug lord in the hospital and calls him “boss,” we’re left with a multitude of questions, like, “Huh,” “What?” and “Wait … can you repeat that?” Like an oblivious parent, we just didn’t see the signs. Was there an Easter egg we missed during their big interrogation scene? Were they passing notes under the table? We need answers, and we them as soon as the show comes back.
  • Tommy and Ghost are no longer together, and now Tommy has a new mission. It’s the breakup we saw coming but never wanted to happen: Tommy and Ghost are going their separate ways, because what is love without trust? Now on #TeamLobos, Tommy is under orders to take him out or risk not only his life, but Holly’s and their dog’s. Can Tommy do it? Can his kill his former BFF?

A few more lingering questions:

  • Will we see more Lobos next season?
  • Is Joe Proctor coming back?
  • What is Tasha’s next move now that Shawn is dead and James St. Patrick is living his fairy-tale ending with Angie?
  • Is this what Kanan will look like?
