“Power Book II: Ghost”‘s Explosive Season 3 Finale Leads to a Full-Out War – Here’s a Recap
“Power Book II: Ghost” certainly didn’t lie when season three teased that it’d be full of secrets, lies, and a ton of trouble. The mind-blowing season finale aired as scheduled on May 26 (in spite of leaks), taking viewers on a wild ride of suspense as everything between Tariq (Michael Rainey Jr.), Brayden (Gianni Paolo), Effie (Alix Lapri), and the Tejadas – Monet (Mary J. Blige), Cane (Woody McClain), Dru (Lovell Adams-Gray), and Diana (LaToya Tonodeo) – came to a head, kicking off a full-out war between them all. Though this was totally unexpected, showrunner Brett Mahoney had already warned fans that a “bomb” would detonate by the end of the season.
From Tariq, Brayden, and Effie’s now-fractured alliance to the Tejada children learning the truth about their mother Monet’s betrayal (i.e. ordering a hit on their father), it seems as though moving forward, all bets are off; no one is safe now that almost all trust is gone. That’s especially true now that Tariq has drawn a line in the sand against his former partners, who nearly kill him by the end of the finale.
One thing’s for sure: all the latest drama in Tariq’s circle is setting up an even more explosive season four, which is currently filming. Not to mention, the tiny Easter egg at the conclusion of the finale – which confirms that Agent Young is the nephew of “Power” OG Angela Valdes – may prove to be a major problem next season. As Mahoney previously told POPSUGAR, with season three revolving around disloyalty, the next installment of “Power Book II” will, of course, center on the fallout: revenge.
So, who’ll be responsible for carrying out such vengeance? That can only be answered when “Power Book II” returns, likely sometime in 2024. But for those whose heads are still spinning from the season three finale, read ahead for a breakdown of all the biggest moments.
