‘I Need Closure’: ‘Power’ Fans in Uproar Over Series Finale as 50 Cent Announces Multiple Spinoffs

On Sunday night, after a lot of theories were tossed around, it was revealed who killed the character James “Ghost” St. Patrick on “Power,” played by Omari Hardwick.

But a lot of people said they were disappointed with the series finale and thought it should have been done much differently.

It turns out, that Ghost’s son, Tariq St. Patrick, played by Michael Rainey Jr., is the killer, and Tariq’s mother Tasha St. Patrick, played by Naturi Naughton, took the fall and went to jail after trying to blame Quinton “Q” Wallace, a guy she was dating. 

The answer to who shot Ghost was stretched out over several episodes, since many were suspects, including the characters Tommy Egan, Dre, Rashad Tate, Cooper Saxe and Paz Valdes.

It seems the main complaint that people had about the finale is that Ghost didn’t get the proper sendoff by being killed, nor did Tasha, since she went to jail.

A lot of people said they wanted to see both of those characters have better endings because they were so important to the show.

“So, we really gonna end #Power without a funeral for Ghost? Raina, Angela and even raggedy ass Kanan had some kinda burial,” someone tweeted. “Ghost the GOAT doesn’t get that courtesy???? F*ck, I need CLOSURE!!!!!!!”

“Power, you win the award for worst ending of a great show, ever,” a second person stated.

“We have basically been watching the same scenes 5 times just to find out who killed Ghost,” a third person wrote.

But others saw things differently and said the ending, as well as the way Ghost died, was fitting.

“Y’all really liked Ghost… like really as a person like all the sh–he did and nobody thought that sh– wasn’t gonna bite him in the ass,” one tweet read.

“‘Power’ was one of the best black series in American television history,” another person tweeted. ‘I will forever be a fan.”

Then on Sunday, in an Instagram message, 50 confirmed there will be four “Power” spinoffs on the way.

“Power Book II: Ghost,” which will star Mary J. Blige and Method Man, is one of them; “Power Book III: Raising Kanan,” which will focus on 50’s character in the show, is another.

A third is “Power Book IV: Influence,” which will star Larenz Tate as his character Rashad, while the fourth is “Power Book V: Force Tommy,” which will focus on Joseph Sikora‘s character Tommy Egan.

But despite many not being happy with the “Power” series finale, there were a number of people who said they couldn’t wait for the spinoffs to air.

“Can’t wait bruh,” one of 50’s fans wrote in the comments.

“I hope we don’t have to wait years for these because im ready 😂💪🏽,” wrote someone else.
