If you know me, you know that I love me some POWER! I Love it. I’ve been a fan since the first episode.

I was even fortunate to meet James “Ghost” St. Patrick, Mr. Omari Hardwick in the flesh at the season 2 premiere in Atlanta.

Can’t you see the girl’s gush in my eyes …

Anyway, did you see season 3? OMG, it was nothing short of awesome. Every show left you on the edge for the next week. After the show would go off, my favorite part would be talking to the other fans in the POWER Fan Group on FB about our theories! People are really involved in this show.

In season 3, you definitely saw more of James trying to be less of Ghost but at the same time, having to do Ghost-like things for the sake of his family & first true love, Angela.

It’s something about those first loves. Sometimes it’s hard to let go … especially when the feeling is mutual, as you can see with Jamie & Angela.

Power fans, how do you feel about the Ghost, Tasha & Angela storyline? He loved his wife & children of course, but he is in love with Angela. He always was in love with her. Although its not real life, it makes me wonder, do you stay in a marriage for the sake of the kids or do you leave like Ghost (for your own happiness) and still try to parent? Most people stay.

It’s also his love for Angela, that is making him desire to go legit. Unfortunately, there are too many odds against him.

POWER Season 4 is Coming

Starz announced today that production has begun in and around New York, for the upcoming fourth season of the STARZ Original hit series, “Power.”

The fourth season will include ten episodes of the one-hour scripted drama and return Summer 2017 on STARZ.

“Power” Season Three is the most-watched STARZ original series ever, with a record of 7.1M viewers of “Power” across all platforms and counting. The #1 original STARZ drama also ranked #1 among all weekend cable programs for African American viewers this season.

The new season will pick up on the heels of James “Ghost” St. Patrick’s highly publicized arrest by his ex-girlfriend, Assistant U.S. Attorney Angela Valdes, for the murder of FBI Agent Greg Knox—a crime he did not commit. Ghost can’t outrun his past choices and mounting enemies this season, which threaten his freedom and his family’s safety at every turn. His fight for redemption brings him face-to-face with the Feds, the media, new allies, and old foes. But the biggest obstacle for Ghost remains himself and his internal struggle between the man he wants to be and the one he really is.

“Power” is a visionary drama that straddles the glamorous Manhattan lifestyles of the rich and infamous and the underworld of the international drug trade.

I hate that we always have to wait a full year for the season to return, but it’s been worth it every season. I can’t wait to see how James “Ghost” St. Patrick, life will be turned around in jail and what new revelations he has about life and love.

5 Big Things That Happen in Episode 1 Season 2 of POWER

I was literally hooked the from the first episode of Power last year. The storyline, actors and rawness captured my attention. Every week, I looked forward to seeing how Jamie or Ghost (whichever one floats your boat) would fall deeper into a relationship with the love of his life, Angela or make things work with his wife, Tasha.

Ghost’s character demands respect from the first scene on Season 1, so you know he’s immediately the lead. My eyes were glued. Period.

A few months ago, I put a picture of Omari on my vision board. I wanted to meet this man. I wanted to have a conversation with him and that happened last night.

Me and Omari

Omari Hardwick, the Atlanta native and star of the Starz breakout 2015 Summer hit, POWER, graced the red carpet last night for a screening of Season 2, Episode 1. I also met actors RonReco Lee (Survivors Remorse) and Brad Parker (below).

Me and more boys

Season 2 Episode 1 is a Jaw Dropper!

This first episode picks up right where the season finale left off. For 60 minutes of uninterrupted drama, love, sex, confusion, drugs, broken hearts, and broken promises, I held my breath.

Episode 1 doesn’t wait to give us the goods! Here are 5 big things that happen, that will make you look forward to the rest of the season, which by the way are 10 episodes this year.

  • Tasha confronts Ghost about Angela, the look on his face is priceless!
  • Holly didn’t die, yet! I think we all wished she did!
  • Cannon is going to try to bring down Ghost empire from within. He will try to use his son.
  • Ghost finds out Angela is a federal agent. Something shifts inside for him, and you see it in his eyes.
  • Tommy and his mom have a bad habit in common. You can see why he is messed up!

After the screening, there was a Q & A with Omari and he shared a few things about his background and what we can look forward to this season.

Is Ghost #TeamTasha or #TeamAngela?

His response was, “He (Ghost) understands that they are both individual people. When I originally read the script, my affinity was for her character the most. Everybody is attracted to the bad guy, but equally attracted to the ride or die chick. Tasha’s that chick! Women love in a way that men don’t. Men get stuck on stupid in a way women don’t. He loves her, but she loves that dark side. It’s limiting him.

Angela believes in his dream. Every man wants a woman who believes the real secret dream of where he wants to see his life. They are two very different women. He wishes he could smash them together but then there would be no show.”

All the ladies swooned and fellas gave their groan of agreement! Those last sentences made me want to go home and ask my husband does he think that I believe in the real secret of his dream?

What I learned tonight

I try to see the lesson in every experience because whether you believe it or not, there is one. I was standing right in front of Omari, trying to get my famous celeb selfie, and seriously considering not saying anything.

In that moment I told myself, “He’s on your vision board. You want more than a conversation-less selfie. You want him to know you, well at least meet you. You want more out of this moment. You have to speak up or the moment will be gone. He won’t reach out to you because there are too many people grabbing for his attention. Act now or lose out.”

That’s exactly what I did. I turned my behind around and simply said, “Hello! You’re on my vision board, so meeting you tonight is a dream come true. I love the show and I am a fan of your work.” His eyes got soft and said, “Really? That’s awesome! What’s your name beautiful?”

“Bernnettttaaa…..” I can’t remember if I tilted my head like a school girl or not.

So he shook my hand and we started to have a small conversation but someone said something and the moment was ended.

As he turned away, I thought to myself, “What if I didn’t ACT?” What if I let fear keep me stuck. I wouldn’t have had my moment in time with him. Now, I have a memory that I will never forget and a picture that captures the essence of my happiness.

Take my lesson learned and add it to your own life. ACT on what you really want. The best thing that could happen is what you really desire comes true! The worst that will happen is something won’t really manifest, but so what! If you don’t ACT, it surely won’t.

Season 2 of Power starts this Saturday, June 6th at 9pm on Starz. Follow the hashtags #PowerTV and even check out the massive FB fan page! If you are a die-hard fan, these are your peoples!
