Omari Hardwick leads Power as James “Ghost” St. Patrick. He may look like a super suave, professional business owner, but he’s really a drug dealer using his nightclub Truth as a front to clean the dirty money. It’s a solid cover-up operation, but when Ghost starts putting more time and effort into turning Truth into a legitimate future, his right hand man (Joseph Sikora) and even his wife (Naturi Naughton) don’t like the idea of leaving the drug business behind.
It’s a curious situation that’s made me wonder (too much), if I had to open up a cover-up business, what would I choose? The first thing that came to mind was a movie theater, but apparently that’s not the smartest idea. Find out why and what Hardwick, Sikora, Naughton, Lela Loren, executive producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and show creator Courtney Kemp Agboh would pick in the video interview below. Power season 2 kicks off on Starz on Saturday, June 6th at 9pm.
Here’s the official synopsis for Power season 2:
Season two picks up right where it left off: James “Ghost” St. Patrick doubling down on his drug business to save his nightclub and dream of a legitimate future. Ghost’s work troubles pale in comparison to juggling his relationship with his wife, Tasha, and his first love, Angela, who’s also an Assistant US Attorney investigating his drug organization.
Ghost is set further back from his dream by his business partner, Tommy, who loves the drug game, and his former mentor, Kanan, fresh out of jail and looking for revenge.
Season two has Ghost in a race against himself: Can he get out of the drug game alive before Angela discovers who he is?
