About “Power Book II: Ghost” – Season Two”Power Book II: Ghost” began its second season with Tariq St. Patrick still running from a legacy that haunted him. Forced into the choice to take the life of his professor, Jabari Reynolds, Tariq found himself drifting further from which he’d been fighting to protect: his family. While Tasha was in witness protection, Tariq knew he had to sacrifice anything to save what was left of his family. Unable to do it alone, he turned to those wielding power and influence: Davis MacLean and his new partner, Cooper Saxe, as well as Rashad Tate. All of these options came with a steep price, so it was back to business with the Tejadas. However, with two murders having involved Stansfield, Monet Tejada had to question if Tariq was the best for her family as she sought to protect her nephew’s professional basketball prospects at all costs. Her younger kids, Dru and Diana, questioned her moves as she grew more distracted, especially when Monet went as far as trusting Cane again despite his actions against the family. While doing so, Monet found herself reconnecting with Mecca, a man who wanted to show her a whole new world, potentially at the cost of destroying her old one, and forced Monet to lean on Tariq, who had to decide what he really wanted and what he was going to sacrifice to get it.
