"Time's Up": The 12 Best Lines From Last Night's Episode Of "Power"

Kanon and Dre continue to plot Ghost's demise, while Ghost does whatever necessary to save Tommy, even if means putting his relationship with Angela at risk.  

Ghost must think fast and act faster if he plans on staying a free man, much less alive.

In episode nine of Power titled "Time's Up" the fairytale Ghost and Angela were living in has come to a crashing halt. With Tommy behind bars, and Angela doing her best to keep him there, Ghost makes a last ditch effort to save his best friend at the expense of risking his relationship with the woman he loves.

And while Ghost is trying to stay one step ahead of Angela, Kanon continues to plan his demise. Kanon, his one time mentor turned enemy, is determined to get what he believes he's rightfully owed even if it means using his son as a pawn.

With one episode left in the season, the war brewing between Ghost and Kanon will soon violently erupt.

Check out the 12 best lines from last night's episode of Power.

1. "You one ugly piece of sh*t." -- booking officer

The episode opens with Tommy going through booking in prison. Relaxed, Tommy's fully aware of the process and doesn't give any indication he's nervous, but is thrown off when an officer decides to comment on his not so dashing good looks.

2. "How did you know they were going to be there?"-- Mike

Angela's work helped the task force to catch Lobos, but her superior Mike wondered how she knew exactly where Lobos would be. Telling a form of the truth, Angela said what needed to said to keep her from losing her job.

3. "I'll think about what I can do for him."-- Angela 

The conflict of interest between Angela and Ghost is now too thick to ignore. After arresting Tommy, Angela visits Ghost and half-heartedly promises she'll try to reduce Tommy's sentence.

4. "It's going to be a long car ride with a dead body from Manhattan to Queens."-- Dre

Kanon and Dre sit Shawn down to review the plans for killing Ghost. Dre knows Shawn isn't a murderer and advises him to not get stopped by the cops, miss an exit, or speed because after all, he'll have a dead body in the backseat.

5. "Get Eagan to sing."-- Chief

While the task force combs through piles of paper work, the Chief of Police walks in to praise Angela for her initiative leading to the capture of Lobos, but to also remind the rest of the team, Eagan is a small fish. They want Lobos and if Tommy can snitch on him for a reduced sentence, so be it.

6. "I hope for your sake it plays out like you see." -- The Serb

Ruiz and The Serb begin to lose patience with Kanon, and while they agree Ghost being dead is good, they wonder why Lobos--who's in prison--will trust Kanon as their New York distributor. Kanon advises the group Lobos being locked up won't stop business and when Ghost is gone, he'll have no choice but to come to him, a promise The Serb hopes Kanon can keep.

7. "Uncle G!? Get that out of your head boy. He ain't your uncle, never was."-- Kanon

Shawn, still referring to the man who sent his father to prison for ten years, calls Kanon while Ghost walks to the car. Kanon trying his best to get Shawn's mind in the game and remind him Ghost isn't your friend or your family anymore.

8. "There are consequences to our actions, Angie, for all of us."-- Ghost

Ghost realizes Angela isn't willing to help Tommy walk and as she buttons her blouse after visiting him at his hotel, Ghost cryptically reminds Angela everyone has something to lose, even her.

9. "A sketch obtained by a 14-year-old, a no doubt influence from an overzealous AUSA. That's why they left it out of evidence."--Proctor

Right before Tommy gets ready to snitch on Ghost, his lawyer submits into evidence a full-sketch of a man that isn't Tommy. The sketch, which was obviously switched when Angela gave Ghost the key to her apartment, was Tommy's get out of jail free card, and potentially Angela's get in jail for free card.

10. "We both been playing dirty all along, you're just mad you lost." -- Angela

Livid Ghost switched out the sketches, which may cause her to lose her job, Angela confronts him at the club. Ghost let's Angela know he was aware she was following him to the Lobos meeting and even bugged his phone. Angela feeling betrayed and played, Ghost just reminded her he was just smarter and two steps ahead of her the whole time.

11. "I know you don't have a change of clothes, Shawn. What they don't show you in the movies is when you shoot somebody this close, there's blow back." Ghost

Although Shawn missed his first opportunity to kill Ghost, he tries to keep his word by putting a gun to Ghost's head as Ghost grabs more liquor from storage. Ghost, like Dre and Kanon, all know Shawn isn't a killer and talks Shawn out of making a mistake.

12. "You just a bitter old thug." -- Shawn

Before running off with Tasha and the kids, Shawn confronts his father, and foolishly returns the gun he was suppose to use to kill Ghost. Shawn confesses he wanted to make him proud, but realizes he was only a pawn in Kanon's grand scheme.

They Don't Want You To Win: D.J. Khaled Joins 'Bad Boys' Sequel

D.J. Khaled knows they don't want you to win, but that hasn't stopped the producer and performer from doing just that.

Variety reports Asahd's father will star alongside Will Smith and Martin Lawrence in the forthcoming action-comedy Bad Boys For Life. It's unclear at this time what role Khaled will play.

Also joining the cast is Vanessa Hudgins, Alexander Ludwig, Charles Melton, Jacob Scipio, and Paola Nuñez. Joe Pantoliano reprises his role as the irritable Captain Howard.

Smith and Lawrence play detectives Mike Lowery, and Marcus Burnett respectively. While Lowery shoots first and asks questions later, Burnett, the family man, tries desperately to incorporate a more pragmatic approach.

Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah will helm the film and Jerry Bruckheimer returns as the franchise producer. The first Bad Boys was released in 1995 with a $23 million budget and earned $141 million in the box office. Bad Boys II released in 2003 had a $130 million budget and earned $273 million.

The third installment of the buddy-cop film revolves around a new specialized unit that clashes with Lowery and Burnett's old-school tactics when a new criminal threat emerges in Miami.

Amanda Seales Corrects Heckler For Whitesplaining Pay Disparity During Stand-Up Set

Amanda Seales had some choice words for an overzealous—and ignorant—audience member at one of her latest comedy shows. A white woman who was visibly under the influence of alcohol made her way to the stage to challenge Seales on her views of pay disparity among white and black women.

The whole ordeal was documented on video, which the Insecure star posted onto her Instagram page. When the Seales asked the woman (who apparently goes by Stephany) what the root of her problem was, she responded explaining that she didn't like how she compared the different pay scales between black and white women.

"My issue is you making a distinction between black women and white women having different positions in business," she said. "Whether you’re a black woman or a white woman, you are paid less than a white male or a black male."

The 37-year-old quickly rebutted her claim by explaining to her that black women actually make less than their white counterparts. "Black women are paid less than white women, this is a fact," Seales began. "So even though I didn’t speak anything about the workplace, this is clearly a concern that you’re dealing with in HR."

"I am a human resource of knowledge so you did come to the right place," she continued. "Alright, your issue is that you feel that I am falsifying facts by stating that there is a distinction between the rights of black women and white women. So you feel that you and I are equal."

After her response, the woman said that she would at least like if white and black women were equal. Seales fired back with an annihilating but accurate detailed response about the realities black women and black people face as a whole and confronted the women on her usage of white privilege to challenge her talents and reality as a black woman.

"This is the thing you’re sitting up here and you’re saying you want me to stand up for equal rights," she said. "You seem to think that by me acknowledging that they are not equal that I don’t stand for it. The reality is that we have different experiences, we have different cultures. You can’t do the electric slide."

"You put yourself on a stage with somebody who does for a living professionally, because your privilege made you think, it’s fine, 'Whatever I can do it to her," she added. "The reality of this situation is no we do not have the same experience. And if you get pulled over tonight you have way less of a possibility to get killed than I do. And that’s a fact."

*Law & Order intro voice* This woman of white privilege was in a disruptive huff at my material. I confronted her about it and invited her to get on stage if she really wanted to be verbally mollywhopped by a smart, funny, and black woman, with a mic. She did. This video is the result of her hubris. #proteckyaneck #ngmfu2019 #wokefam 🎥: @chineducomedy

Coachella Co-Founder Details Kanye West's Decision To Pull Out Of Performance

It’s safe to say Kanye West definitely knows what he wants, which is why he dropped out of headlining Coachella this year. The festival’s co-founder, Paul Tollett, recently told the Los Angeles Times Ye pulled out just two days before the line-up was announced on Jan. 3 over stage design constraints.

Tollett revealed that while Yeezy’s ideas were great, they were unable to execute them at that level. He hopes in the future Mr. West and the team could negotiate another performance.

“He has some great [production] ideas, but we just weren’t able to pull them off right now,” Tollett confirmed. “I’d like to circle back with him and figure out a future plan of what to do with what’s in his head…Up until Jan. 1, we were making a poster with Kanye on it. We started realizing we’re probably going to have an impasse production-wise.”

According to Billboard, West ended the negotiation with Coachella because it couldn’t build a giant dome over the stage. Ariana Grande will reportedly take West's spot.

Alongside Grande, Childish Gambino, and Tame Impala will headline the Coachella stage in Indio, California. Prominent performances by Bad Bunny, Solange, J. Balvin, YG, Pusha T, Kid Cudi, Khalid, Anderson. Paak, and more are on the bill. The festival will take place on the weekends of Apr. 12-14 and Apr. 19-21.
