"Three Moves Ahead" : The 13 Best Lines From From Last Night's 'Power'

As the walls comes crashing down, Ghost must out think all his adversaries if he's plans to stay alive.

Kanon and Lobos are both in town to collect from Ghost. Lobos wants his money and K wants his old territory and Ghost's head on a platter. In episode 208 titled "Three Moves Ahead" Special K, donning a new leather jacket and jeans, puts in place his long awaited takeover from the man he groomed who later put him behind bars. Lobos who narrowly escaped an attempt on his life, offers Ghost the keys to his empire so he can remain in control and concealed from authorities.

While Ghost thinks over Lobos' offer, Angela pieces together the final parts of her investigation against the Mexican drug lord but tries one last time to save Jamie from potentially getting caught in the crosshairs. And while K, Lobos and Angela are all strategizing against Ghost, it's Ghost who--this time around--stays three steps ahead of everyone.

In this life or death game of Chess, can Ghost outsmart his adversaries, or will he just end up being a pawn?

Check out the 13 best quotes from episode 208 "Three Moves Ahead."

5."I need to be invisible so I can stay invincible."-- Lobos

After an attempt on his life, Lobos realizes he's too exposed traveling to America to collect his cut. He sets up a meeting with Ghost where he propositions him with control over his major networks.

6. "I don't mean any disrespect, but your attachment to him is holding you back."-- Lobos

Tasha suggested killing Lobos believing if Lobos is gone, so are all their problems.

Stream: Hulu's 'FYRE Fraud' Doc Examines The Festival That Scammed Thousands

In 2017, rumors of an exclusive festival taking place in the Bahamas took over social media. Organized by Billy McFarland and promoted by Ja Rule, the FYRE Festival was the new, cool kid on the festival block and quickly put other more seasoned festivals to shame.

But all that glitters isn't gold.

FYRE FRAUD, the new documentary streaming on Hulu, takes an intimate look at the scam that left thousands stranded on the island. Directed by Jenner Furst and Julia Willoughby Nason, the dark-comedy interviews whistleblowers, victims, and the convicted con-man himself, McFarland.

In a press release, Fraust and Nason said the goal isn't to make light of those who were scammed.

"Our aim was to set the stage for a strange journey into the moral abyss of our digital age, going beyond the meme to show an ecosystem of enablers, driven by profit and willing to look the other way, for their own gain.

"We draw on countless cultural references, on true crime tension, and on humor - but we did not intend to create a toothless comedy about the Fyre Festival. We hope this film can pierce our collective apathy and disrupt our own millennial peers, if only for an instant - to look at these stories for what they truly are, and to halt this algorithm before it devours us whole."

FYRE FRAUD is now streaming on Hulu.

Dave Chappelle Isn't Sure His R. Kelly 'Chappelle Show' Skits Were Insensitive

The Surviving R. Kelly series may be over, but the fallout from it has seemingly just begun.

Director dream hampton took to Twitter during the airing of the Lifetime documentary and spoke honestly about the several celebrity men she contacted in hopes they'd speak on camera about R. Kelly and the years of sexual allegations that have shadowed him. Among them was Dave Chappelle.

The beloved comic famously made a music video entitled "Piss On You" mocking the real-life video of R. Kelly urinating on an underage girl. During the Chappelle Show heyday, he used R.Kelly's legal woes as material for years.

TMZ caught with Chappelle in West Hollywood and asked him if he regretted not being featured in hampton's series and instead he dodged the question.

"Jesus Christ, I just had dinner," Chappelle said in between taking a drag of his cigarette. "I just ate. Strop bringing that motherf**ker up."

When pressed about whether or not he thinks his old skits were insensitive, the 45-year-old said "I don't know. I'd have to watch it again."

D.L. Hughley joined Chappelle for dinner and commented on R.Kelly and the forthcoming Michael Jackson documentary, Leaving Neverland, which outlines sexual assault allegations against the late singer.

"If you can be mad at R. Kelly, you should be mad at Michael Jackson," Hughley said.
