Power Book II: Ghost Season Finale Preview: Is Tariq Out of Options?

After nine episodes of deals and double-deals… loyalty rewarded and betrayal put down permanently… and Tariq (Michael Rainey Jr.) trying to stay alive while keeping three worlds from colliding with one another, STARZ's Power Book II: Ghost goes guns-blazing into its season finale with twists and turns that "Power" fans won't see coming and definitely don't want to miss. Willing to do whatever it takes to clear his mother Tasha (Naturi Naughton), Tariq finds himself in the middle of a plan that not every member of the "Power" universe will be too happy to hear about. If that wasn't enough, he still has to stay on Monet's (Mary J. Blige) good side- which isn't as easy a thing to do after last week's episode. Meanwhile, Riley (Andrea Lee Christensen) tries to get Brayden (Gianni Paolo) to see that Tariq does not have their best interests at heart. All of this an more- as you're about to see in the following preview images and promo for "Heart of Darkness":

A Look Inside the World of Power Book II: Ghost

Power Book II: Ghost stars Michael Rainey Jr. (Power, Lee Daniels' The Butler) as Tariq St. Patrick, Naturi Naughton (Power, Fame) as Tasha St. Patrick, Mary J. Blige (Mudbound, The Umbrella Academy) as Monet Stewart Tejada, Shane Johnson (Power, Behind Enemy Lines) as Cooper Saxe, Gianni Paolo (Ma, The Fosters) as Brayden Weston, Quincy Tyler Bernstine (Ray Donovan, Modern Love) as Tameika Washington, Daniel Bellomy (The Real MVP: The Wanda Durrant Story) as Ezekiel 'Zeke' Cross, Paige Hurd (The Oval, Hawaii Five-O) as Lauren Baldwin, and Cliff "Method Man" Smith (The Deuce, Garden State) as Davis MacLean.

"Power Book II: Ghost" picks up shortly after the earth-shattering events of "Power" as Tariq St. Patrick grapples with a new world order: his father dead and his mother, Tasha, facing charges for the murder her son committed. Not to mention the academic rigors of the Ivy League university Tariq is attending to earn his inheritance. Truly on his own for the first time in his life, Tariq is forced to split his time between school and hustling to pay for Davis MacLean, the fame-hungry defense lawyer who is Tasha's only hope of getting out of jail and escaping prosecution by newly minted U.S. Attorney Cooper Saxe. With no better options, Tariq turns to the familiar drug game, entangling himself with a cutthroat family headed by Monet Stewart Tejada, that's been at it far longer than him. As Tariq tries to balance his drug operation with his grades, love life, and family, he figures out that the only way to avoid the same fate his father met is to become him — only better.
