Power Premiere Recap: Son of a Gun

Need to catch up? Check out the previous Power recap here. Tariq does something in this weeks Power premiere that is so devious, so final and so unexpected that it makes me genuinely proud of him.

Power Season 4 Episode 10 Review: You Can't Fix This

Considering how incredibly satisfying this season has been, was anyone else a little disappointed in the finale? Were there satisfying deaths? Sure. Was their treachery and deceit? Of course. But Power Season 4 Episode 10 didn't give me that edge of the seat feeling that I've come to expect from this show. Instead, we had an hour that while fulfilling in some respects seemed rushed and almost a little forced.   ...Read More...

Power Season 4 Episode 9 Review: That Ain't Me

There are really no words for what just happened. Of all the directions I thought this show could go, this is not the avenue I thought they would take. Deaths are no big deal in the Power universe. So far this season we've seen Julio, Jukebox and Sandoval all meet their makers, along with a host of other characters, some we barely knew and others we were glad to see go (I'm looking at you Brains). But Power Season 4 Episode 9 saw the death of a character that will impact this show in a way that no other death ever has. Spoilers will be coming up, so look away if you're not caught up.   ...Read More...

Power Season 4 Episode 8 Review: It's Done

We've been waiting for this y'all! And Power Season 4 Episode 8 finally delivered Mike Sandoval running out of excuses and losing that calm demeanor he's shown from the beginning. It's been no secret that I've been waiting for his downfall, and it came swiftly, if not a bit on the predictable side. But nonetheless, Sandoval was busted, and he ran out of cards to play.   ...Read More...

Power Season 4 Episode 7 Review: You Lied To My Face

As fast paced as this season has been, I was expecting there to be an episode where things slowed down, and it came this week. While not weak by any means, Power Season 4 Episode 7 was more of a setup piece preparing us for the final run of episodes. We've got Angela and company FINALLY looking at Mike, Tommy talking to Teresi, and Tariq spiraling out of control.  ...Read More...
