'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.

‘Candyman’ Reboot Pushed Back To Next Summer

The long-awaited reboot of the ‘90s horror flick, Candyman, has been pushed back yet again. The film, written by Jordan Peele and directed by Nia DaCosta, is now expected to arrive on August 27, 2021.

Like many productions delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Candyman remake has been postponed more than once. In September, Universal Pictures removed the film from its calendar. Da Costa later explained that the film was made to view in theaters.

“We wanted the horror and humanity of Candyman to be experience in a collective, a community, so we’re pushing Candyman to next year, to ensure that everyone cans the film in theaters, and share in the experience,” DaCosta tweeted at the time. Her Twitter account has since been deleted.

Described as a “spiritual sequel” to the 1992 original, the reboot stars Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as the supernatural monster lurking within the character Anthony McCoy. The film’s premise finds McCoy (Abdul-Mateen) returning to the now gentrified Chicago area where the legend of Candyman first began.

“I’m really honored to be stepping into those shoes,” Abdul-Mateen said in an interview with Collider.com. “They’re big shoes to fill because, obviously, that’s an iconic character and a story that people relate to. Even people who have not seen it, have ideas about it, or they’ve still been able to interact with it, and that iconography has penetrated their lives. So, it’s an honor to be able to step into that, and to re-tell that story, and to introduce the mythology of Candyman back into the world, in 2020, and to put our own social lens and our own spin on it. I think that’s gonna be a lot of fun, to put that iconography back into the conversation.”

Daniel Kaluuya Explains Why His Upcoming Live-Action ‘Barney’ Movie Is “Really Needed”

Daniel Kaluuya shared an interesting take on Barney, and the motivation behind his up-coming live-action adaptation of the children’s series. The 31-year-old British actor is producing what will be a sobering interpretation of the lovable purple T-Rex, one that Kaluuya says is “really needed” at the moment.

“Barney taught us, ‘I love you, you love me. Won’t you say you love me too?’ That’s one of the first songs I remember, and what happens when that isn’t true? I thought that was really heartbreaking,” Kaluuya told Entertainment Weekly  in an interview promoting his upcoming film Judas and the Black Messiah. “I have no idea why but it feels like that makes sense. It feels like there’s something unexpected that can be poignant but optimistic. Especially at this time now, I think that’s really, really needed.’’

Mattel Films is co-producing the live-action Barney film alongside Kaluuya’s production company, 59%, and Valparaiso Pictures.

Barney & Friends originally aired on PBS from 1992-2009. The purple dinosaur and his sidekick,  B.J. and Baby Bop, taught legions of young viewers educational messages through songs and dance.

Aside from Barney, Kaluuya opened up to EW about portraying Black Pantry Party member Fred Hampton in Judas and The Black Messiah, co-starring Lakeith Stanfield.

“One of my aspirations was to show how brilliant these people were in every way, and what they were really doing, to show the full picture, away from the narrow narrative that has been portrayed. Show what they were really doing in this time, and how revolutionary their ideas were. It didn't necessarily mean destruction. They were actually about healing and loving and taking care of your community. These activities do not feel like they're associated with the Black Panther party but that's the foundation of it, which is why it spread.”
