'Power' Recap: The 14 Best Lines From Episode 9 "I Call The Shots"

The lines have been drawn in the sand, and while Ghost continues to try and rid himself of Milan, Tommy further cements his allegiance to the cannibal drug dealer.

After making fans wait two weeks, Power returns offering the same high-blood pressure and heart palpitations audiences have grown to know, love and accept. In Season Three episode nine "I Call The Shots" viewers see a part of Ghost's plan unfold, proving Mr. St. Patrick is smarter than your average bear. However, he underestimates how much he can trust his estranged wife after a night of passion, which leads to the death of his only escape.

Kanan continues to be a bad influence to Tariq, while Knox's unrelenting drive to nab Ghost and Tommy bring him face-to-face with the real Lobos leak. Courtney A. Kemp is setting up fans for an explosive season finale. Check out the best lines from episode nine "I Call The Shots"

1 "So you talking to Ruiz now, but you can't pick up the phone for me? I hit you last night." Ghost

As Ghost waits for Tommy to finish texting, he questions why Tommy didn't answer the phone when he called, which further cements his suspicion Tommy and Milan have something brewing he doesn't know about.

2 "This is Thomas, my apprentice." Milan

Tommy tells Ghost he went to Milan's warehouse to view the product, when in all actuality Milan introduced Tommy to his henchmen as his student and potential successor.

3 "We need to meet." Angela

Angela combs through the burner phone Ghost gave her and texts the last outgoing number. When Mike dials the number and before either one of them could say anything, a helicopter flies over their building. They both hear it on the opposite end, which means Angela knows the leak is still in the building and Mike now has to figure out who has Hugo's phone.

4 "Hey it's me, just checking on ya. Call me later?" Tasha

As Tasha assists with the last minute preparations for career day at Tariq and Raina's school, she gets a call from the salon. One of the stylists tells her Keisha didn't show up for her shift. Tasha becomes a bit alarmed and texts her but receives no text back.

5 "I'm your friend first." Dre.

Dre goes by the St. Patrick household to ask Tariq where he was the night before. Tariq thanks Dre for covering for him and says he hung out with Slim. Dre, realizing that Slim (AKA Kanan) is up to no good, warns Tariq to not be so trusting of his new friend.

6 "Juries don't need proof, they need a good story." Angela 

Angela meets Ghost and asks who he told about Lobos. Ghost informs her he told Proctor, which legally means he can't say anything. Ghost tries to comfort Angela, but Angela, being an attorney herself, realizes juries aren't concerned with the truth as much as they are the story.

7 "I didn't want to believe the St. Patrick alibi, but I can't ignore surveillance tape. Facts are facts." Knox

Knox continues to play the fool while he cozies up to Angela. He tried to ease her fears by telling her he believes that Ghost wasn't involved in the Lobos escape or murder, only to later go searching through her purse to locate the burner phone.

8 "Maybe you are right, but either way from this point forward I am holding you responsible for his actions." Milan

Milan has eyes everywhere and was notified Ghost followed Tommy back to his warehouse. Tommy tells Milan Ghost is just worried about his safety. Milan gives him the benefit of the doubt, but warns him if Ghost continues, he will be killed.

9 "I chose you over Holly. This time mother f*cker you need to choose me." Tommy

Tommy tells Ghost Milan knows he followed him back to the warehouse, and Milan made it clear if Ghost doesn't back off, he'll order his men to kill him. Tommy takes the threat seriously and reminds Ghost that he killed Holly for him, so if their friendship means anything, he'll take heed to Milan's orders.

10 "You ain't go no options, Dre. You made a choice, me!" Kanan

Dre approaches Kanan on his dealing with Tariq, and from his body language Kanan infers he's toying with the idea of telling Ghost he's alive and Tariq maybe in danger. However, Kanan reminds him of the choice he made and how that choice will backfire not on Special K, but on himself.

11 "Dre told you not to hang out with me, but Dre be talking out of both sides of his mouth." Kanan

Kanan continues to sink his claws into Tariq, and this time takes him to a sneaker store. While he doesn't outright tell 'Riq to steal a pair of $250 Jordans, he plants the seed in the naive boy's head, who devises a clever plan to boost a pair of Js for himself.

12 "NYPD! Andy Jones Albert Tatum? We have a warrant to search the premises." 

Upon learning his competitors swooped in and landed the Bassett deal, Ghost planted Milan's product in their club and tipped off the police to swarm the premises, putting Ghost back in position to work with Karen and Horacio Bassett.

13 "What are the kids gonna think when they see you sleeping in my bed. It ain't us getting back together, is it?" Tasha

While at the house, Ghost and Tasha reflect on Ghost's speech during career day in which he admits his ambitions have taken him away from his family. The two then kiss, which leads to an unexpected night of passion. Tasha tells Ghost it's best he leaves before the kids wake up and confuse them.

14 "You're going to regret this," Ruiz

Tasha foolishly tells Tommy of the plan Ghost has in motion involving Ruiz. After the meeting with Milan, Tommy drives Ruiz home and pulls over pretending to have car trouble, only to then stab him to death.

Go Girl: Wendy Williams Is Getting Hit Up About Dates Post-Divorce

Wendy Williams hasn’t outright discussed the recent news regarding her impending divorce from her husband of 22 years, Kevin Hunter. She did, however, discuss that the date inquiries have been coming in strong.

During the “Hot Topics” segment of her self-titled talk show on Wednesday (April 17), Ms. Williams said that she was getting distracted while reading because her phone was buzzing off the hook with inquiries regarding interested, potential dates.

“I was minding my own business… All of a sudden, my cell phone rings and it's DJ Boof asking me out for dinner," she says to her audience. DJ Boof is her in-house DJ, and the camera cuts to him smiling.

"Then, I get back to reading my book and my phone rings again. No, it wasn't Boof. It was Charlamagne [Tha God]!” she revealed. “Charlamagne wanted to take me for dinner. So he says the night, and he says the time and I said 'I can't go because I'm going out with Boof for dinner. So Charlamagne says, ‘well, I know Boof, why don’t we both take you out?’”

Williams’ estranged husband discussed his transgressions in a statement to PEOPLE, saying “I am not proud of my recent actions and take full accountability and apologize to my wife, my family and her amazing fans. I am going through a time of self-reflection and am trying to right some wrongs.”

It appears that Wendy will be moving on just fine. Check out the clip below.

Joey Bada$$ Wishes Nipsey Hussle Was Celebrated More When He Was Alive

Joey Bada$$ visited Ebro’s Beats 1 radio show, where he discussed the recent passing of rapper Nipsey Hussle. The outpouring of support for the 33-year-old’s musical and charitable legacies has been amazing to witness. However, Joey states that he wishes people celebrated the Victory Lap musician as hard as they are now, but while he was able to see his impact.

"Nobody thought we would lose Nipsey Hussle,” he told Ebro during Tuesday’s show (April 16). “He was one of those people that we thought we would have forever. As soon as we lose a person like that, everybody want to jump on the bandwagon. He should have been able to see the fruits of his labor... We gotta show love, we gotta spread love.”

The All-Amerikkkan Bada$$ MC said that people need to practice showing appreciation for the people in their life and who they come across, so that they are able to see their impact while they are here.

“It’s extremely important that you show appreciation for your favorite artists, your favorite people, your favorite friends, your favorite family members, whatever,” he continued. “It’s just extremely important you never waste those moments, you always appreciate them. Like you said, any moment it can go like that.”
