Power ended with Ghost’s assassin being revealed. Tariq is the one who finally ends up taking pictures Ghost in his membership and Tommy (Joseph Sikora) is the one who sees him.

The season ends with Tasha getting arrested for Ghost’s homicide and goes to jail. Ghost’s will says Tariq has to complete school with a 3.5 GPA in an effort to obtain his cash. We then see that he does go to highschool.

Rainey Jr. talked in regards to the fan reactions to his character all through the previous seasons. “Since Tariq started acting up in season 3, I’ve been getting messages like, ‘Why is Tariq acting up? Why you so stupid?’” he informed Entertainment Weekly. “But now it’s way more. So I’ve been used to, but, honestly, it doesn’t really affect me. I just ignore it. I feel like, “Hey, they’re watching the show and they’re into it, so that means something good.”

He defined why his character determined to kill Ghost as an alternative of letting his mom do it. “Personally, I feel like that’s a man’s job,” stated Rainy Jr. “I don’t feel like any woman should have to do something like that. But I think Tariq had to step up and do the job, like, he couldn’t let his mom do that.”

He continued, “Everyone has an issue with Ghost, but Ghost is in Tariq’s way, and is about to turn Tariq in, so I feel Tariq had to do it himself because it’s his own personal problem and he wants to be the one to deal with his pops.”

Hardwick continues to be reflecting on his character’s demise. “At the end of the day I was a strong black father figure that wanted the best for his family especially his children and their future,” he stated based on Page Six. “I felt like my character should have been gone in season 7.”

He continued, “I felt he was definitely a good father but he wasn’t so affectionate but he was present enough. My character may have had bad sides like many do but he was present…even at his children’s school.”

Tariq might need hated Ghost in the long run, however Hardwick nonetheless thinks his character was the one who was looking for him. “Out of both parents Ghost was probably the better parent,” he stated. “He told his son to go to school while his wife Tasha [Naturi Naughton] told him to deal drugs.” Fans have actually confirmed on-line and of their messages to the forged that they agree.

Power Book II: Ghost is about to premiere in summer time 2020. The different spin-offs have but to have a launch date.
