Power Season 6, Episode 13 "It's All Your Fault", Cousin Cornbread Notes and Commentary

#Power #PowerFans #PowerSeason6 #WhoShotGhost #PowerReviews #CousinCornbreadReviews

1 – I like how Elisa Marie wasn’t having that BS about Uncle Benny being missing.  She’s the only kid on the show that acts her apparent age, and maybe even a little bit older, but definitely not younger like they had Yas and Cash acting; OH, and former NY Yankee A-Rod from Episode 12 acting like a young teen, as Angie’s nephew.

2 – Tommy’s mom reminds me of my mama with the combination of making legit points, mixed in with foolery and ratchedness lol.  She ran down some good points about why Ghost wouldn’t have killed Lakeisha, but at the same time we know that Ghost ALSO shot up Tommy’s car and tried to kill him in the ambulance too lol.  #Balance

3 – I really like the new Italian Aunt, she’s a hard ass and ain’t going for shyt!  I’m glad that she didn’t buy Tariq’s BS about not knowing Tommy and Ghost.  Tariq’s emotional range is -3.

4 – I’m glad that Tommy got that evidence bag and found out that Tasha killed LaKeisha instead of Ghost.  That confrontation in Tasha’s apartment was intense.  Even though I knew that he wasn’t going to shoot her, I wasn’t totally SURE sure; and that’s crazy because the story line clearly shows them being alive together later after Ghost gets shot.  Good job by the actors and production team on that scene.

5 – I’m glad that they showed us some more detail about that warehouse shootout, with Ghost and Tommy, but it was still mad random that Cedric The Entertainer was in there shot up lmao.  We REALLY really need answers on why Cedric The Entertainer is after Ghost and Tommy LMAO.

Also, did Ghost have that Superman spiral curl bang in the original scene? lol

6 – Elisa Marie is coming through in the clutch.  She knows how to play the game and give the right answers.  Tommy don’t want that smoke from the mafia.  Good tie back by the writers on that.  Now THAT would make perfect sense for him to have to skip town. Bravo.

7 – Yo they edited that Paz-and-Tommy loft scene to include him mentioning Ghost and they took out the part where Tommy said he would call the cops. Damnit I wish I didn’t pay attention to detail, because those lil subtle things made a difference in the original scene.

8 – It’s wild that Elisa Marie was in the car having a heart-to-heart with the guy that killed her father AND her uncle.  I’m glad that he took her back home and didn’t kill her! Lawwrd.

9 – Tariq is the absolute worst!  Tommy tries to reason with him with real-life examples of how their stories mesh and how he regrets the hate that he had for his dad, but Tariq’s randomly scorned ass is hell-bent on hating Ghost.  If the plan is to setup a spinoff with Tariq as the head, I will NEVER watch it, off of GP.
10 – The shootout scene with Vincent and the crew was one of the best action scenes that Tommy has had in a while.

11 – Who THEE FUK did Tommy look up at upstairs?!  Clearly Tariq right?  Ghost died still trying to protect Tariq’s bobble-head ass smh.  Again, if I see the actor in real life at Chick Fil A or Starbucks, I’m swinging on him.  Dead ass B!

12 – Why did Tommy’s mama fry him like that about wanting to be like Ghost? She’s disrespectful as hell.

13 – I KNEW GHOST left Tommy some money or something!  I called it in my last review! #CornbreadKnows. Fixing up his car as an apology for trying to murder him was very nice lol.  He had to have left him some money too no?

14 – That shot in Spanky’s eye was the quickest and most accurate shot ever!

15 – I had anxiety while Tommy drove off.  I was sure some random car was about to pull up full of Italians blasting! Lawwrd #TheStress

Ahight that’s all I got folks! Till next time, y’all be easy, and don’t drink and drive, you might spill some. #LogAwt

Power Season 6, Episode 12, He Always Wins

#Power #WhoShotGhost #PowerReviews #CousinCornbreadReviews 

Man listen, Episode 12 that had the viewers following Paz's journey with Angie's murder and trying to deal with her feelings toward Ghost was another "meh," episode writing-wise, but it was more like two (2) "mehs" versus one because it wasn't totally forced like the Dre episode lol.  Anyway, let's get into it with my rundown as it happened!

1- It’s crazy that Paz just pulled up to Tasha’s house and started talking about taking Ghost down.  Ghost had ZERO loyalty from everybody.  They all just openly plot on him like they don’t know him lol.

2- Is the gun that Paz got out of Angie’s box, the gun from the penthouse that Angie was holding for Ghost?

3- There’s no way Paz was so dense not to see that Angie was clearly helping Ghost stay out of jail.

4- Why do they always cast these old ass teenagers to play younger kids.  They had former NY Yankee, A-Rod playing Angie’s nephew lol.  He’s a whole grown ass man.

Power Season 6, Episode 11, Still Dre - Who Shot Ghost

#Power #WhoShotGhost #PowerReviews #CousinCornbreadReviews Man listen, we've waited for a couple of months for Power to come back on, and to start getting closer to finding out Who Shot Ghost, and the writers came through with the "Meh" yet again. Geez. Here's my rundown as it happened!

1- Dre is TOTALLY NOT “Good at this shit (drug game)” 

2- “I ain’t no snitch” has always been the dumbest street code in the world because somebody definitely always snitches and the others suffer for it.  In real life there are ZERO rules and codes that are upheld in the streets.  Save yourself. Worry bout yourself!

3- Tariq’s acting skills are terrible, and I realized why.  He says the lines like he reads them directly off of the cue cards with no inflection or emotion based on the context or situation.

Power Season 6, Episode 10, Who Shot Ghost - Cornbread's Notes, Thoughts, and Feelings

#PowerReview #PowerFans #Episode10 Ahight y'all should've had time to watch Episode 10 by now, so here's my weekly rundown.  #ManListen

1- Why is Ghost still calling Tariq “son?” He needs to start calling him “lil muthaphucka” exclusively. 

2- I love how the Attorney General talks to Saxe and kicks him out every time.

3- The new character, Uncle Gabe’s sudden recollection of “Jamie” escalated very quickly. So we learned that Ghost has a family lineage of owning a club huh? Interesting. Why didn’t he think to do that in the first place?

4- Ghost declaring his interest in, and making the move on Romona was unexpected. I thought she would crack first. Just like everything else recently, this infatuation escalated unreasonably quickly, even though it is about 4 episodes too late.  They should've been smashing by now! 

5- Both Ghost and Tasha fall in love easily and get reckless with their love immediately. Ghost slobbing Ramona down in the middle of the banquet was ridiculous.  Everybody has constantly talked about how Tasha is always falling for every guy that shows interest, and Ghost is just as "easy."  Romona flashed her lil smile and now this dude wants to be the PREZ-O-DENT! lmao

6- “I release you from our marriage” is another good line from Ghost that goes along with “Have whatever type of day you’re going to have” as great one-liners.

Power Season 6, Episode 9, Scorched The Earth - Cornbread's Notes, Thoughts, and Feelings

1- Do we know anything about Lakeisha’s Baby Daddy? Would he really be of any use to Tommy? I don’t remember him at all. Also, when did Tommy get that yellow car? 

2- Ramona is proposing Ghost as Lieutenant Governor tho?! This is so extra. He’s way too hot and unraveled right now to be a real public figure. He’ll be the poster-boy for Blackmail Bait. The drug dealing teacher and O-Dogg Tate will have stuff to hold over his head in any capacity as a public official. However, we finally see what Romona’s purpose has been. She has finally jumped in on the backstabbing! Lawwd geezus! 

Larenz O-Dogg Tate is going to try to kill Ghost! When Romona told him she was leaving he looked very distraught; way different than the swag he had when he hit Ghost with that “you ain’t gon do sh!t boy!” Lol

3- The plan to get Jason, The Serb Distro to the new building was genius. Ghost getting Dre to come to the roof was a good move, but then TV Magic made it so that somehow Dre escaped a surrounded building from the roof when the police were downstairs and upstairs?!

Why would they need Dre to plant the phone at Ghost’s hotel to get him on Silver? Wouldn’t the phone have whatever evidence they needed? Wouldn’t it better to find the phone in the car WITH the dead body?  

Ghost WOULD NEVER drop a big ass SAMSUNG NOTE or iPHONE 8PLUS at the scene in the car.  The writers are getting lazy again mayne!

Overall, Dre is just as irritating as Tariq, but at least he has a reason to be shady being a real competitor for Ghost. Tariq is just an ungrateful lil asshat for no reason. He literally has no reason to hate Ghost the way he does.

Power Season 6, Episode 8, Notes, Thoughts and Feelings

Power Season 6, Episode 8, Notes, Thoughts and Feelings
1- Tariq is STILL hella disrespectful to Ghost for no reason. He’s right back to the bullshyt and plotting on ways to submarine his own dad, and it came out big time with that exchange about Ghost running for political office. Smh. He’s the worst! I know Tasha kinda gave up on him being a good kid, and has opted to teach him the business instead, but I think that he's not beyond stabbing her in the back eventually too. She knows he's messy and vengeful so it's mid-key a risk to teach him the business in my opinion. I'm still steadfastly holding my position that they just need to take him out and move to Cuba, where The Serb can't find them, and live happily ever-after. Just move to Cuba and make a whole new son or two. Why try to work with this one? Or, don't take him out, but just leave him to fend for himself with "Uncle" Tommy, and let him live out his dream of becoming Kanan. Either way, fawk this lil bama!

2- This Saxe and Blanca clique-up is good for the storyline. Frienemies working together and back-stabbing each other is consistent with every other relationship on the show.

3- I’m glad the DA didn’t even hear what Saxe had to say about Ghost and Tommy tying him up, and left his status as fired! However, because Saxe is back in play via Blanca, the fingerprints Ghost left all over Saxe’s apartment will somehow come back later in my opinion.  Ghost is still being more sloppy than usual this season.

4- I like the invisible boss plan that Tasha and Tariq have for the teacher, but who in the world accepts work from people that can break in your trunk and drop off mad drugs? Lol.  Lawwrd, he’s going to be too hot though because his teacher salary won’t match his sudden ability to pay off all of his debt and “the Feds is watching!”

Power Season 6, Episode 7 Notes, Thoughts, and Feelings

Power Season 6, Episode 7 Notes, Thoughts, and Feelings

1- I’m so glad Ghost finally pulled the strap on Tariq, and took his money. He should’ve pistol-whipped him tho! Just like one-to-three hits in his sore ribs with the gun handle. Grab him by the throat and be like “you’re luck you’re my son lil messy ass phuck boi!”

1a)LOL at Tasha’s “Okay Ghost” when he dead ass thought he got through to Tariq.  Tariq STILL ain't shyt!

2- Keisha gon hold that gun in her bag till 2037.  Her accusing the workers of stealing is exactly why she shouldn’t be involved in the biz.  However, the writers actually made LaLa have some good insight and value in this episode.

2a) Tommy’s Worker Spanky is one of the best actors on the show.

3- Tate is hot as hell for smashing campaign worker Derrick’s wife Cassandra, but I’m glad Ghost didn’t kill Derrick, like O-Dogg tried to get him to do.  YES, I'm calling Tate O-Dogg from now on since he's acting very Menace II Society-ish recently.
