What happened at the end of Power season 6?

Dre was murdered

At one time, fans believed Dre (played by Rotimi) was going to be James “Ghost” St Patrick’s (Omari Hardwick) prodigy.

But this didn’t turn out to be the case and Ghost saw Dre as a threat and set him up for a murder he didn’t commit, just when he was about to leave with his girlfriend to relocate to Las Vegas.

While Dre was in the cell though, he soon realised he was sent there to get killed himself as Ghost had hired 2-Bit (Michael J. Ferguson) and Spanky (Omar Scroggins) to murder him.

The hitmen were then seen filling Dre’s cell with gasoline-soaked towels and then setting the room on fire so their victim would burn to death.

Tate continues his campaign for Governor

Rashad Tate (Larenz Tate) had been desperate to become New York’s next Governor and was willing to do anything to get there.

When Ghost became a threat, Tate took the drastic measure of hiring Dre to kill him and the only reason he didn’t was because someone else got there first.

At the end, when reporters found out about Ghost’s death, Tate was interviewed and started using his rival’s death as a way to further his own political career.

A spin-off series about Tate’s ongoing political battle will be at the heart of Power Book V: Influence.

Tommy leaves New York for good

Fans found out at the beginning of series six that Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora) had actually killed Angela Valdes (Lela Loren), Ghost’s girlfriend.

When he later found Ghost’s body in the street and cradled him as he died, Tommy was heartbroken.

Eager to start again, Tommy packed up his things and left NYC so he could have a new life in Los Angeles.

Power Book IV: Force will focus on Tommy and what he got up to after Power finished.

Ghost’s killer is revealed

The second half of series six was dedicated to finding out who Ghost’s killer was.

Ghost was shot on his nightclub balcony which he then fell from and died in the street, comforted by Tommy.

There were plenty of characters who had enough motive to want to see Ghost dead but to many viewers’ surprise, it was the drug lord’s own son Tariq St Patrick (Michael Rainey Jr) who had pulled the trigger.

He wanted to make it on his own in the world and felt he couldn’t do that with Ghost there, bringing him down and making his mum Tasha St Patrick (Naturi Naughton) live in fear.

Tasha goes to prison

To protect her son, Tasha tried to put the blame on Quinton ‘Q’ Wallace (Tyrone Marshall Brown).

Unfortunately for her though, Quinton had an alibi and the CCTV at the club where Ghost was killed proved he wasn’t there.

Tasha then took the blame for Ghost’s murder herself so Tariq could go to college and earn the money his dad left for him in his will which stipulated he had to get an education to get access to the money.

Season six ended with Tariq at college and Tasha behind bars which is where Power Book II: Ghost will start.

Power Book II: Ghost will start on Sunday, September 6, on Starz.
