Power Book II: Ghost - Season 1 episodes (10)

1 The Stranger
As Tariq St. Patrick begins his new life at Stansfield University, he's torn between two worlds: doing as his mother said, living his life as a normal college kid; or doing what she taught him, hustling product, to save what family he has left. On his own for the first time, he feels there has to be another way. A better way. But Tariq knows he can't do it alone, reaching out to allies, old and new, to help him earn his way toward proving Tasha's innocence in the murder of James St. Patrick and freeing their family from his shadow.
2 Exceeding Expectations
Haunted by the legacy of his father, Tariq tries to understand who James St. Patrick was to the people in his life, how it's shaped Tariq's own life, and how the memories of James St. Patrick and Ghost define the man Tariq wants to become. Carrie and Jabari's past entanglements complicate how they counsel Tariq through this pivotal moment in his life. And as Tariq gets acquainted with Zeke's aunt, Monet, Tasha is concerned with her son's path, questioning how he's paying for the expensive services of her new defense attorney, Davis MacLean.
3 Play the Game
Tariq struggles with the weight of providing for his mother's mounting legal defense while juggling the rigors of Ivy League life. As Jabari challenges Tariq's perspective in the classroom, Tariq recruits Brayden to help setup his operation. Tasha attempts to prove to Davis that she's innocent as Davis grows frustrated with her lying. Monet reigns in control when one of her primeras steps out of line.
4 The Prince
After Monet's agreed to do business with him, Tariq initiates his play to control the drug market on campus, while insulating his and Monet's involvement. Tariq enlists the privileged help of his old friend and new roommate, Brayden, to be the face of the operation. But Monet, apprehensive about her arrangement with Tariq, uses her children, Dru and Diana, to learn more about how he does business, as G.T.G.'s continued distractions force her to change how she does hers. And as Tasha's preoccupied worrying about who her son's getting into bed with, Davis takes aim at Saxe in defense of her case.

With the Tejada business model changing, Monet presses her kids to step up, as the distractions of Stansfield threaten to derail their family's operation.
6 Good vs Evil
Tariq's hands are tied, fearing that fully letting Brayden in on their arrangement with the Tejadas has put him on a violent collision course with Cane, who demonstrates the price paid for using his name. And tired of her authority being challenged, Monet lays down the law for Dru and Diana. Davis and Saxe's agreement is tested when they call their first witness to the stand, a face from the past that may know enough about the St. Patricks to draw Tariq into the ire.

Even with Cane in the wind, Monet doesn't plan to miss a beat, and Diana intends to make sure she doesn't. And, on the outs with Monet, Cane searches for new allies. Davis and Saxe land on an ideal witness to achieve their joint plan in Tasha's case.

With Brayden tied up with his family, Tariq must reach out to old, and questionable allies to capitalize on the influx of customers on campus.

BUYER BEWARE : Do not buy this item on Google Play...its not the complete series. Episodes missing . The series itself is excellent but Google Play has a bad habits of selling incomplete or missing episodes of box set tv shows.

After the events of Power continues Tariq St. Patrick stepping into college life while following James "Ghost" St. Patrick's legacy to pursue in becoming a high-level drug distributor and nightclub owner of Truth like his father use to be as he tries to balance his drug operations with his education, love life, family affairs, and mounting pressure from the United States Attorney's Office, the FBI, and local law enforcement. Power Book II: Ghost is an awesome series spin-off of Power just like The Wire, Empire, Black Lightning, How to Get Away with Murder, Star, Tales, The Chi, and The Family Business.
