"Help Me" The 18 Best Lines From Episode 305 Of 'Power'

Courtney A. Kemp did not come to play with you hoes...no she did not!

After two seasons of Holly's annoyance, short-sightedness and pure stupidity, fans finally get their wish in Power episode 305 "Help Me," yet Holly's demise---as passionate, intense and intimate as it is-- wasn't as sweet or as ticklish as what some hoped or believed.

While Tommy wonders if Lobos tried to have him killed, Ghost learns Ruiz is in federal custody and may snitch on the entire New York drug syndicate. Yet all of that seems inconsequential when he comes face-to-face with his would-be assassins, the hitmen Holly hired, while with Tariq.

The pace is faster, the stakes are higher and the risks are much greater. Courtney A Kemp and the rest of the Power writers team did not come to play with you h*es. Check out the 18 best lines from Power, episode 305 "Help Me."

1."It don't track that he wanna cut off his money." Tommy

While Tommy nurses his wounds he still can't figure out why Lobos would have him killed. Potentially disrupting his money doesn't add up to Tommy leaving him to believe the hit on his life didn't come from the obvious source.

2. "We have to save ourselves." Holly 

Holly is tired of Tommy's stalling and is trying her best to convince him they'll never be safe as long as Ghost is alive. Yet despite her pleas, she senses the tide is turning, and Tommy's disdain towards Ghost is fading.

3. "There's just so many obstacles between us." Angela

The sparkle that was in their love affair is beginning to fade as Angela  contemplates all that has transpired. Between the rocky dinner with Paz and Tariq getting suspended from school, Angela wonders if their relationship will survive.

4. "In these moments I ask myself who am I going to kill first?" Lobos

Sandoval informs Lobos Ruiz is in federal custody and might snitch. Lobos instructs Sandoval to kill Ruiz, but Sandoval can't have another high-level informant die on his watch. Lobos doesn't care about protocol and threatens to have Sandoval or his daughter killed.

5. "What does Tasha know?" Proctor

Ghost wants to do right by Angela and instructs Proctor to draw up the paper work for a legal separation from Tasha. Proctor wonders why not get divorce and then questions what does Tasha know that's keeping Ghost tied to their dead marriage.

6. "Nothing's the same with him anymore. It's just different. He's different." Tariq St. Patrick

Tasha tells Tariq instead of going to see the therapist he's spending the day with his dad. Tariq isn't interested and would much rather be alone because in his eyes, his dad isn't the same.

7. "Places. product and names." Knox

Knox convinces the task force to switch strategy midstream and see if they can get Ruiz to rat out Lobos' entire network. Angela tries to push back and asks the team to stay on course, but Knox wants to Ghost to go down, and will do anything to get it done.

8. "I didn't have a f**king choice, the mortgage is past due." Kate Egan

Katie Egan comes by when she realizes Tommy neglected to pay the mortgage. Tommy tries to get his colorful mom to leave but after seeing Holly (who she refers to as Hailey) she decides to stay for a while and do a couple of lines with her son.

9. "What the f*ck!" Proctor

For safety precautions, the federal building gets cleared out as Ruiz walks in. Proctor slips the guard some money and asks that he hold the elevator door, which allows Proctor to see Ruiz along with Angela.

10. "I didn't want her to grow up the way I grew up or your pops." Dre

Tariq spends the day at the bar with his father and is tasked with helping Dre stock the bar. The two begin to chat and Dre reveals Ghost was hurt when he learned about Shawn, and also expressed his love for his own daughter and the life he hopes to give her.

11."You give me the identity of Ghost, and you get the deal and you and I will never have to see each other again." Knox

Knox is pulling out all the stops to get Ruiz to identify James St. Patrick as Ghost. He tells Ruiz if he doesn't, they have him on tape ordering the hit on his daughter's boyfriend, Nomar, which carries the death penalty as sentence.

12. "Like, what kind of father does that?" Tariq St. Patrick

Tariq finally tells Ghost his actions--moving out, forcing him and his sisters to meet Angela, not explaining what happened between he and his mother--is the reason for his behavior.

13. "Angela, I really don't want to but if I have to I'll fix it myself. " Ghost

Angela meets Ghost at the club and advises he gets a lawyer, but she soon learns Ghost already knows about Ruiz. Ghost tells Angela he wants to do the right thing, but if he has to, he'll "fix" the problem himself.

14. "This place is real nice. You didn't have sh*t when I met you, boy." Kanan

After just singing his daughter's praises, Dre comes home to find Kanan with his daughter. Struck with shock and undeniable fear, Kanan spares his daughter's life and tells Dre to be ready as he puts his plan in place.

15. "You're still a Soldado." Angela

Angela will do whatever to protect Ghost. During a private conversation Angela reminds Ruiz he's still a member of the Soldado Nation and reminds him the only reason he's still alive is because Ghost saved him, so he must return the favor.

16. "Of course I do, he's as much my son as you are." Kate Egan

Katie has worn out her welcome and Tommy is about to drive her to the train, but before she leaves he asks if she believes Ghost is as loyal as she claims, and while Katie Egan may not be the best mother in the world, her words helped Tommy put the missing pieces together about the hit the night before.

17. "No." Ruiz

As Ruiz gives up Lobos and his connection to him he's asked if he knows what Ghost's real name is and in a simple response, shuts down Knox's entire plan.

18. "Together." Tommy

After Tommy realizes it was Ghost who killed the Koreans the night he got shot, Holly confesses to Tommy she hired the Jamaicans to kill Ghost. The two get into a heated argument with Tommy choking Holly to death. Ghost narrowly avoids death and goes to Tommy's house to realize what took place. While in the car the two devise a plan to bring down the one man that tore them a part: Lobos.

'Selena: The Series' Is Headed To Netflix

It's been more than 20 years since Selena Quintanilla's senseless death, but the singer's fans and family have done their part to keep her memory and legacy alive. With the hope of introducing the Grammy-award winner to a new generation, Netflix has ordered a Selena series to live on the streaming platform.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Quintanilla family will produce what is being described as a coming of age story for the model, actress and fashion designer. It's unclear how many episodes will be in the series and if it'll be 30 minutes or an hour.

"Selena will always have a lasting place in music history and we feel great responsibility to do justice to her memory. With this series, viewers will finally get the full history of Selena, our family, and the impact she has had on all of our lives, Selena's sister Suzette Quintanilla said in a statement. "We are excited to partner with Campanario and Netflix to give fans a never-before-seen glimpse at our story and highlight why Selena will remain a legend for generations to come."

Selena began her musical career in the 1980s often performing at festivals in her hometown of Corpus Christi, Texas. She quickly rose to fame and earned a Grammy in 1994 for best Mexican/American album, becoming the first female Tejano singer to do so.

In 1995, Selena was shot and killed by Yolanda Saldivar who managed her fan club after it had been discovered she was embezzling money. Saldivar was found guilty and sentenced to life in prison. The singer's life then made it to the big screen in 1997, with Jennifer Lopez starring in the principal role.

P. Diddy Weighs In On All This "King Of R&B" Talk

Atlanta singer-songwriter Jacquees had the Internet in shambles over the weekend when he declared himself the king of R&B for this generation. The Cash Money artist did earn praise for his debut album 4275, but many felt the boast was premature at best. Tyrese, Tank, Eric Bellinger, and Usher all responded with who they think the true king of rhythm and blues is, but for the rest of the Internet, they pulled up for the laughs.

Sean P.Diddy Combs has maintained a relatively low profile since Kim Porter's death, however on Tuesday (Dec. 11), Diddy interjected to offer a bit of perspective on what it takes to be a king, and more specifically, a king of rhythm and blues.

"Heard we talking about some king sh*t and y'all know I usually mind my business, but R&B is the foundation of my life," Diddy began. "And to be a king, that's some other sh*t. The word king is too loosely thrown around.  Now, I understand the concept that we are all kings, I understand that....but cats giveaway the king thing too early."

Just to backtrack, Mr. Combs has produced some of the 90s most beloved tracks and has earned the right to offer his two cents. Diddy then explained the R&B is also about feeling, not just lyrical small talk.

"Let's get to the topic of R&B: we talking about rhythm and blues, we talking about sharing your soul, and making love through your music. We're talking about adoring a woman. Not just putting it down or talking about how you just want to smash her, I'm talking about adoring her. So in order to be the king of R&B you first gotta start making some R&B, you have to be vulnerable, you have to be speaking about love, you have to be able to affect women in a positive way and your ass has to be able to sing."

In the video, it appears as if Mr. Combs is about to sign off as he's grown tired of the long talk only for him to remember that in order to be the king, you have to be number one and if you're the king of R&B a number one record is...expected.

"Man, and then you have to write a number one record. You've gotta have a whole bunch, a whole bunch of number one records," he concluded.

50 Cent, T.I. And Lil Duval Are Advocating For Cardi B To Take Offset Back

Offset and Cardi B's impending divorce has gained a lot of attention, especially with the two making a very public spectacle of their relationship by changing song lyrics boasting about their expiring nuptials. Leaving a lot of space for public opinion, 50 Cent, Lil Duval, and T.I. have weighed in on their split.

Attempting to coerce the mother-of-one into staying with the 26-year-old, Power's 50 Cent seemingly hopped in the "Bodak Yellow" emcee's comment section, begging her to take the "Bad And Bougie" rapper back.

Lil Duval also left his two cents on Twitter with a follow-up post Instagram. "Life is too short to be leaving ni**as just because they cheated," he wrote. The "Smile" artist playfully tagged the 25-year-old in his next moment of offering unsolicited advice.

T.I. wrote in agreement with comedians comments tagging the "Money" musician in his comment beneath the same Baller Alert repost. Though the brotherhood expressed during Offsets hour in need is surprisingly supportive, Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar, known profession by her stage name seems to have made up her mind.

Recently the five-time Grammy Award nominee had to defend her marital status after headlines swirled around claiming her divorce was a sham. “I wouldn’t put my family in a bad name for no f**king publicity, ‘cause at the end of the day, ten years from now, my daughter, she’s gonna be looking at these type of things and she’s gonna be asking me about these type of things,” Almanzar said.
