Before we jump into this recap let me just start off by saying this (takes deep breath)… THIS WAS THE BEST EPISODE OF POWER EVER! Courtney A.Kemp and her amazing team of writers have totally outdone themselves with this episode! Now that I’m done with that let’s get into episode 305 which is accurately titled “Help Me” cause I needed help after watching it.
Episode 305 starts off with Tommy who is clearly going through it after the assassination attempt on his life by the Koreans last episode that failed thanks to Ghost (he doesn’t know that yet).
Tommy is super paranoid now cause he’s not sure if it was Lobos who called in the hit on him. His paranoid moment is interrupted by his annoying ass girlfriend Holly who still believes it is Lobos though.
Even after Tommy makes sense of it explaining to her why he’s not sure if it was Lobos she is still adamant that it is and that he must kill Ghost. She tells the poor tortured soul at this point that they HAVE to do this and they will do it together in order to stay alive and not suffer the same fate as their poor dog. Ghost sends Tommy a text, Holly quickly stops Tommy from looking at it and tells him they are not leaving the apartment till they come up with a way to kill Ghost. Unfortunately Tommy doesn’t know she has already taken care of that.
Speaking of Ghost he’s trying to smooth things over with Angela the best way he knows how…
Yes that’s right new week, another sex scene don’t act like y’all are shocked by these things now. Angela’s head is clearly not in the moment and Ghost quickly picks up on it and asks her what’s wrong. Angela is still worried about their relationship and the”obstacles” they face if you want to be specific, Riq hating her , Paz hating Ghost and the fact that he’s still married.
All Ghost can do is listen in silence, the conversation is interrupted by text to Angela’s phone from her job telling her to come in immediately. The strategy meeting for Ruiz has been pushed up and Angela has to get there a.s.a.p.
Speaking of Ruiz one particular person is not happy that he’s back in town and that is Lobos.
Lobos is extremely worried and lets Mike know it! Mike informs Lobos that Ruiz will be brought to the Federal Building for questioning. Lobos immediately suggests that Mike somehow get Hugo in there to get rid of Ruiz but Mike quickly shoots that idea down. Mike explains to his boss how extremely hard it will be to get Hugo in and let alone out of the building. Mike tells Lobos that they just can’t risk the unnecessary attention on the both of them at the moment. Lobos is growing very impatient with Mike and threatens to send Hugo to either kill him or his daughter first.
Our favorite attorney Proctor is back, and gets a call from Ghost.
It would seem what Angela said resonated with Ghost and looks like he’s trying to fix things in his new home. Ghost asks Proctor to get some separation papers ready, looks like Ghost is ready to start distancing himself away from Tasha one step at a time. Proctor tries to warn Ghost but he lets him know that it’s just separation for now, not a divorce. This is news that should definitely have Angela like:
Speaking of Angela she goes to pay a visit to her old flame now nemesis Greg.
Strictly there to defend her man’s honor Angela tries her best to convince Greg to give up his witch hunt for Ghost and just focus on Lobos. Of course Greg isn’t going to do that cause deep down inside he’s still hurt about losing Angela to him and this is the best way to get back at him.
Riq is still on suspension for bringing Angela’s gun to school. Tasha tells her son that his dad is there to pick him up to hang with him for the day.
Back in the day that would be exciting news for the Tariq but he’s not really feeling his dad at the moment. Tasha explains to Riq that his dad is really trying to make things work and that he should try too. Riq agrees but he lets her know that he really doesn’t want too. Poor Ghost hears everything from the hallway and I’m sure it was just eating away at his heart to hear his son say that.
The case against Lobos is picking up steam and Mike is looking extremely nervous now that Ruiz is back in town.
Angela explain to their boss that their case against Lobos is moving forward and suggests that the priority should be just on him. Mike of course wants more than that!
He suggests that they also make Ruiz give up the whole operation that includes Ghost and Tommy as well. Of course that only makes matters worse for both Mike and Angela. The boss of course agrees with Greg’s approach to the case, Mike and Angela were both looking like:
Holly is still doing her best to try to convince Tommy to take out Ghost.
Holly clearly doesn’t know how this life of crime thing works and ridiculously suggests that Tommy should just walk up to Ghost and put a bullet in his head. Tommy (he doesn’t want to do it) shuts that idea down basically because he would get caught if he went out and just shot Ghost in broad daylight. The discussion is interrupted by a loud knock on the door. Who could it be?
Basically the last person on the planet Tommy wants to see shows up on his doorstep… his mom! Much to his dismay Tommy asks why is his mom is there and she points out that mortgage is past-due on her house and she had no choice since he handles that. Tommy quickly tells her that he will get Tasha on the phone and she will write up some checks but not before she notices the bullet wound on his arm.
Kate then asks if both him and Ghost took care of the person that did to him, Tommy tells her no and lets her know that he doesn’t rock with Ghost no more. Kate eventually meets Holly and Tommy introduces the two to each other. Kate is not here for Holly at all and even notices she is wearing her mother’s ring. Kate is immediately not fond of Holly at all.
