'Power Recap' The 12 Best Lines From Episode 7 "Don't Go"

Ghost realizes Milan is a far more advanced opponent then he's ever faced, while Tommy's heartbreak and anger spirals out even more out of control.

Ghost doesn't spend much time wallowing in the hurt he's caused by ending his relationship with Angela, instead he must craft a plan to rid himself of his new relationship with Milan. In episode 7 of Power titled "Don't Go" Ghost soon realizes Milan is unlike any other nemesis he's faced in the past, and chooses to do his bidding for the sake of his well being and that of his family. Tommy however is still heart broken over Holly and is disgusted with himself for causing her death, which sends him even further into a dark emotional tail spin with nothing to lose.

Back at the station, Valdes, Knox and Sandoval are being interrogated by internal affairs for the botched Lobos transfer. MJ, the lead agent isn't sure which one member of the Lobos task force is responsible for the leak, but all roads point to Valdes and her shaky past, instead of Sandoval.

And while Ghost must get a handle on Milan, Kanan is laying down the groundwork for his revenge. Check out the best lines from Power, episode seven "Don't Go."

1."No one else will ever know me like that...I'll never let them." Angela.

As Angela cries on her sister's shoulder over her break up with Ghost, Paz tries to comfort her by telling her she'll find a new guy in no time, but Angela doesn't want a new guy, she wants Ghost.

2."Someone in this building was involved in the Lobos escape and the only people with relevant information were on this task force." MJ

An internal affairs unit has been called to investigate how Lobos' transfer resulted in his death, and while Sandoval, Knox and Valdes all allege to have no idea where the leak came from, MJ is certain the mole is one of them.

3. "I ain't working with that Tony The Tiger looking motherf***ker." Tommy

Tommy and Julio arrive at Club Truth to talk about their next move with Milan. It's also the first time Dre and Tommy see one another after Dre placed a gun to Tommy's head. Dre tries to explain he was just doing what he had to do, but Tommy makes it abundantly clear he's doesn't trust Dre.

4."Motherf***er Googled the sh*t out of you." Tommy

Tommy isn't aware--or doesn't care--about the severity of the Milan situation and isn't phased at the fact that he eats people, which is made apparent by how Tommy continues to speak out of turn while Milan gives instructions on how he wants his product sold.

5. "I don't care what the Serbian Hannibal Lecter says, Ghost, you ain't my f**king boss. I been running things since you left. I'll handle this my own way." Tommy

Milan tells Tommy to kill Father Callahan because he sells guns and Milan isn't in the business of guns. Ghost agrees, trying to gain a grasp on Milan. However, Tommy isn't just going to roll over and take it and decides that he's going to handle his portion of the business his way.

6. "Look, I'll call you, man. I'll call you!" Dre

Kanan is keeping watch on Ghost and backs Dre into a corner after realizing Ghost and Tommy are working together. Using Dre as his eyes and ears, Dre tells him something new is brewing that he isn't privileged to just yet, but promises once he knows he'll call.

7. "I know this means a lot to you James, get the money." Karen Bassett

Because of his unexpected snafu with Milan, Ghost had to pay Milan the money he intended on using to give to Karen Bassett's father. Horacio Bassett isn't pleased with the last minute delay of funds and determines Ghost isn't financially prepared to play with the big boys.

8. "Thought you would've been cool but you flipped out right? Now she's out there, alone, pregnant with your child. She's probably half way to Ohio by now. " Tasha.

Tasha assumes Holly has ran off to Ohio, which is why she isn't returning any of her calls. Upset at herself and for what she thinks Tommy did, she tells Tommy Holly was pregnant, which makes his heartbreak spiral even more out of control.

9."Valdes didn't break the law, Knox. She just broke your heart." MJ

Back at the station, the internal affairs unit is still trying to figure out who the mole is. MJ can sense Knox has a real axe to grind with Valdes but realizes it's more heartbreak on Knox's fault, rather than what Valdes actually did.

10. "How much do you know about Angela's relationship with James St. Patrick?" Sandoval

In one breath Sandoval says he's unwilling to throw any of his men under the bus, but when MJ puts the screws to him, he then turns the suspicion on Angela Valdes, despite him being the mole.

11. "You got duped again, sweetie. Love will do that to you." MJ

All roads lead to Angela, who in the past hasn't always followed protocol, which at this point is working against her. Playing off her relationship with James St. Patrick the Internal Affairs unit lead officer tells her being in love is what caused her to mess up.

12. "I'm in your home, with your family, that is risk."Milan

Ghost attempted to rid himself of Milan by reporting one of his waitresses missing. The move proved to backfire when Milan and the alleged missing waitress showed up at his house unexpectedly for dinner one night, proving Milan is far more dangerous than any nemesis he's ever come across.

VICE CEO Doesn't Believe Desus And Mero's Brand Is Strong Enough For Showtime

Comedy duo Desus & Mero have kept their brand strong since joining forces in 2012 but the newly-appointed CEO of Vice believes their move to Showtime wasn't the best decision.

In an interview with Elle, Nancy Dubuc shared her plans to rebuild the outlet since reports of sexual harassment allegations, unlawful HR practices and the stepping down of Shane Smith came to light this year. Changing the bro culture has removed content and replacing it with more substantial content and finding gems that will also replace the gap left by Desus & Mero.

The guys brought high ratings to the network during their reign from August 2016 to June 2018, but Dubuc doesn't see this happening for their upcoming series at Showtime. “They’re going to a platform that their audience doesn’t pay for,” she said.  “I told them, ‘You can always come back.’”

In an interview with Bossip over the summer, the guys revealed their contracts were cut two months early after news about their deal with Showtime went public. They show consisted of the two commentating on the latest in politics and pop culture while interviewing big names like Gabrielle Union, Rachel Maddow, Diddy, Vic Mensa and Tracee Ellis Ross. They also opened up about their organic approach in comedy was nearly butchered when the network demanded them to work 24/7.

“We were carrying that network on our back, and we felt the weight,” Desus said. “They were talking about, ‘Do not take the weeks off because we don’t get ratings,’ and it’s like, 'Yo, we’re just two people.'”

“We were literally the LeBron of that network,” Mero added. “As a dad, you wanna be around for milestones for like graduations, birthdays…and it’s obnoxious to have to be like, ‘I can’t go to my kid’s graduation because we leave the studio at 3 o’clock and the graduation is at 4.’”

Mero believed the duo were undervalued and not appreciated by the network until it was too late. Their brand transcended platforms as the guys are still active on Twitter and their podcast roots, taking the brand to new heights.

“The channel wanted us to die for this f**king network,” Desus said at the time.  “We’re also the highest rated show on the network, put some respect on our name, have someone come massage my feet.”

We doubt the duo will go back to Vice as excitement for their series on Showtime continues to grow. The guys are already making strides by adding black women to their writing team and recently dropped a teaser for the show.

The brand is strong. #DESUSandMERO are bringing the culture to #Showtime beginning Thurs, Feb 21, at 11p/10c! #BodegaHive pic.twitter.com/3DwcWXgrEO

Cardi B Gets Driving Lesson, Performs For Senior Citizens During 'Carpool Karaoke' Segment

Cardi B was the latest guest on James Corden's Late Late Show segment, "Carpool Karaoke," and as expected, it was a helluva time.

The Grammy nominee ran through some of her hits with Corden, such as "Bodak Yellow," "Money," "Be Careful" and more. She discussed her transition from stripper to MC, which Corden attributed to "grinding and hustling for a long time.”

“A lot of these deejays was sleepin’ on me… they was frontin’ on the kid!” Cardi exclaimed. Cardi also discussed her childhood growing up in the Bronx, which included keeping a razor blade in her cheek just in case some crazy sh*t goes down, as well as her affinity for ASMR videos. She also performed at a senior citizens' home at the end of the clip to a rousing response.

Perhaps the best part of the segment was her attempt to drive. Facilitated by a conversation in which the two discussed her five luxury cars, Cardi hit a few cones and flags while trying to maneuver in and out during a lesson. She said that the car (a Range Rover) was a bit big for her, but her lack of driving skills period resulted in her hitting a camera during her attempt at parallel parking.

“I couldn’t rap about these cars because I didn’t own them,” she laughed before adding, "[Driving] is scary.”

Watch the entire segment above.

Former ABC President Channing Dungey Joins Netflix As VP Of Original Content

Former ABC president, Channing Dungey, is heading to Neflix. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dungey will officially join the company early next year in a "newly created leadership role" as a vice president of original titles.

Dungey will work directly with fellow vp, Cindy Holland, and Netflix’s chief content officer, Ted Saranados. Her position involves overseeing the streaming network's current deals, which include the Obamas’ Higher Ground Productions company.

The move also re-teams Dungey with Shonda Rhimes’ and Black-Ish creator, Kenya Barriss, both of whom left ABC and signed with Netflix.

In addition, Dungey will oversee a group of executives who have worked on Narcos, House of Cards, and other big shows on the streaming network.

"I'm drawn to the forward-thinking, risk-taking and creative culture at Netflix, and the deeply talented people there, especially Ted and Cindy, with whom I’m excited to partner on setting the strategy for original content," Dungey said in a statement. "Given that ABC, the place I’ve called home for nearly 15 years, represents the gold standard of traditional broadcast, it feels like the perfect next step for me to join Netflix, the unparalleled leader in streaming. I'm invigorated by the challenges ahead and the opportunity to forge new relationships, and excited for the very welcome reunion with incredible talent."

In 2016, Dungey was named president of ABC, making her the first Black woman to lead any of the four major networks. She began her career with the company in 2004, and worked her way up to executive vice president of the network’s drama division developing hit shows such as Scandal, Quantico, Hot To Get Away with Murder and American Crime, before being promoted to network lead. Her exit from ABC came in November, shortly after firing Roseanne Barr for making racist comments.
