'Power' Season 4, Episode 7 recap: “You Lied to My Face”
Ghost (Omar Hardwick) and Tariq (Michael Rainey Jr.) are on the train from Queens, and both of them are traumatized from fall with Kanan (Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson) and Juke Box (Anika Noni Rose). Tommy (Joseph Sikora) arrives back in NYC and visits his stash house to find his henchmen tied up. He learns that Ghost was the one who robbed him and he has questions. Just as he’s about to retaliate, Tommy gets a call from Ghost saying that Kanan is alive and that Tariq is in trouble.
Tommy jumps in his car to go and pick Riq and Ghost up. When they meet, Tommy tells Ghost about the ransom demand and about Kanan. The entire time the two men are having this conversation, Tariq is looking on. Before they head home, Tommy asks Tariq if Dre (Rotimi) knew that Kanan was alive. Tariq lies to protect Dre.
At the Feds office, John Mak (Sung Kang) tells Angela (Lela Loren), Mike (David Fumero) and Saxe (Shane Johnson) that they’ve been suspended and that they’ll probably be fired. Apparently, Mok was able to avoid the same plight. With no logins and no clearance, the team is ass out. John is still determined to get justice for Greg (Andy Bean). As they exit the meeting, Saxe tells Anglea that he’s coming for her. (LMAO OK Saxe.)
Ghost and Tariq are greeted by a distraught Tasha (Naturi Naughton) when they walk into the penthouse. Riq tells his mother that she lied to his face about everything. Before things go left, Ghost pulls Tasha into the bedroom and confront her about the ransom, Kanan, and everything that’s been happening while he was locked up. He tries to blame Tasha for their son spiraling out of control. Apparently, he thinks she had “one job” while he was away. Tasha isn’t having it. She reminds him that this all happened because he left the family and was too busy pretending to be someone he wasn’t with Angela. Ghost says, “I didn’t leave the family, I left you.”
