The 13 Best Lines From 'Power' Episode 403 "The Kind Of Man You Are"

"If you die by lethal injection, will Yazmine even remember you?" Angela

Things have gone from bad to worse and Ghost is visibly beginning to unravel at the seams. In Power episode 403 titled "The Kind of Man You Are," Ghost is slowly being backed into a corner where he starts to contemplate the meager options he may have left. Sensing the desperation in his client, Proctor introduces Terry Silver to act as second chair. Silver boasts an impressive winning streak when it comes to suspected murderers facing the death penalty. Yet despite working to prove Ghost’s innocence, Silver--who isn’t short on arrogance and judgment--makes it clear he thinks Ghost is guilty of the crime.

While Ghost and Silver “warm up” to one another, the weight of his predicament and potential death sentence causes Raina to become an emotional mess, while motivating Tariq--who truly only wants a father figure-- to fall further into Kanan’s rabbit hole.

Taking heed to Proctor’s instructions, Ghost keeps quiet and keeps to himself while in prison, but his good boy act comes to an end, and if he wants his secret to remain a secret he’s going to have to take yet again another L. It’s not looking good for Ghost. Check out the 13 best lines from Power, episode 403 “The Kind of Man You Are.”

"I'm not here to judge your innocence brother, I'm here to save your life." Terry Silver

Viewers are introduced to Terry Silver who will act as second chair for Ghost's defense. The arrogant but skilled attorney was called on by Proctor for his track record, specifically as it pertains to those facing the death penalty. While Silver maintains he will work for the W, he makes it crystal clear he doesn't believe Ghost is innocent.

"Look Tommy, he lies about everything. I'm pretty sure he lied about this too." Tariq

Tommy takes Ghost's request of protecting his family to heart and begins taking a more active role with the children. While driving the kids to school and saying bye to Raina, Tommy questions Tariq about his poor behavior towards his mom. Riq makes it known he doesn’t care about helping his family and believes the worst about his father. Riq also suggests Tommy do the same.

"James isn't the type of guy that would kill somebody." Dre

The feds have taken Dre, Julio, Keisha and other known associates of Ghost in for questioning. Aware that everything they say can be used against Ghost (and themselves) they all keep their cool. Sandoval attempts to get Dre to give up useful information, but instead he sings Ghost's praises.

"When did James St. Patrick move out of the marital residence?" Angela

Angela sits with Keisha in the interrogation room and is armed not only with the law, but her self-righteousness. Keisha knows Angela already has the answers to the questions she's asking, but what Keisha doesn't know is Angela is attempting to craft an argument to break spousal privilege and force Tasha to testify against Ghost.

"The kids are blameless, John. Is that our goal? To put the kids in the system?" Angela

While Angela wears her poker face in the interrogation room with Keisha, she attempts to reason with Mak and the others when it comes to Ghost's children. Angela doesn't want to put Tasha on the stand because she knows if both parents are put in jail, the children will be placed in foster care. Mak however is only concerned with winning the high-profile case and views the kids as "collateral damage."

"Riq, let go!" Raina

Ghost's arrest and news of his potential death sentence has made headlines in the press and the blogs. While in school, a bully approaches Raina about her father being an alleged cop killer, and as she begins to cry, Tariq slams him against the wall. Riq showing signs of his father’s murderous ways, keeps a tight grip on the bully. Raina screams at Tariq to let go and when he finally does, he ditches school entirely.

"Yeah after, when he pulled me over that night like I told Angela." Ghost

Silver, Proctor and Ghost sit in the prison interrogation room and try and figure out a way they can get the DNA evidence thrown out. While going over the night in question, Ghost says the only time he interacted with Knox was when he pulled him over. It then dawns on Ghost it was then Knox was able to get his DNA on him. What was more surprising was the fact that Angela knew, and didn't notify the judge.

"You know those plans I was talking about? Well it's time. Ready to do some work?" Kanan

Kanan continues to sink his teeth further into Tariq, but now he's kicking it up a notch. Instead of just filling Riq's head with lies about his father and family, he's now priming him for a life of crime, and using his private school as a means to do it.

"If you never left Greg for St. Patrick, Greg would still be alive." Agent Bailey Markham

Friend and mentor to Knox, agent Bailey Markham stops by Angela's office to accuse her of getting Knox killed. While Mak believes Knox was the mole, Markham is on a quest to clear his name and restore honor to an officer who died in a line of duty. Markham insists Knox's death is Angela's fault and claims had she never began dating St. Patrick, he'd still be alive.

"You know exactly what you were doing. You just don't want anyone to know who you are. Right, Ghost?" Teresi

After confirming his suspicions that James St. Patrick is Ghost, Teresi confronts Ghost in the common area and tells him he's aware of his little secret. Ghost tries to play it off and says he's never heard of the name, but as soon as Teresi threatens to tell Mak, Ghost acquiesces to his threat and agrees to have Tommy deliver $20,000 to his home address every week for his wife’s cancer treatment, adding yet another problem to the list of never-ending problems he already has.

"If James said the traffic stop happened, it happened!" Proctor.

Terry Silver doesn't buy what St. Patrick is selling, but wonders why Proctor is so adamant about about proving James' innocence. Had it been up to Silver, he would’ve had Ghost take a plea deal a long time ago. Before Ghost enters the interrogation room, Silver tells Proctor he wasn't able to find any record of the traffic stop on the night in question, which only adds to his belief that Ghost is guilty.. Proctor reassures Silver if James said Knox pulled him over Knox pulled him over.

"If you die by lethal injection, will Yazmine even remember you?" Angela

Surprisingly, Valdes walks into the prison interrogation room asking to speak with St. Patrick alone. Ghost denies her request and while the two talk, Valdes tries to get Ghost to take a plea deal: life in prison. Up until now, Ghost was adamant about not confessing to Knox's murder, but when Angela questions his integrity as a man and whether or not Yazmine, his youngest daughter will even remember him if dies by lethal injection, Ghost contemplates the deal on the table.

"No baby girl. Nobody can kill your daddy." Ghost

After Tariq stormed out of school Raina chased after him and began crying. Photos of her littered the newspaper, which came to Ghost’s attention when Marshall hands him the paper. Ghost phones home to hear Raina is sobbing. As Tasha comforts her, she asks if he'll die in prison. Putting on a brave front but holding back his own tears, Ghost says no, but wonders if he just lied to his baby girl.

50 Cent, Joy Bryant, Nicholas Pinnock Talk New Season Of ABC's 'For Life'

Months after its debut, ABC's For Life has returned for a new season. Based on the true story of Isaac Wright Jr., a former-inmate-turned-lawyer, the drama series' protagonist, Aaron Wallace (Nicholas Pinnock), fights for his freedom and safety in and out of the courtroom while fighting for that of his fellow inmates. As Wallace inches closer to finding substantial evidence to exonerate himself, he reconnects with his ex-wife Marie (Joy Bryant) and pregnant teenage daughter Jasmine (Tyla Harris).

"When I met with Issac, I almost couldn't believe what he was saying to me. He went to jail, became a prison rep, came back created a case law through other people's cases, and worked his way out of jail?" said Curtis "50" Cent" Jackson in a recent interview with VIBE correspondent Jazzie Belle. "You know more people that saw things not going well [in prison] and said I'll take a bad situation before I take the worst situation and cop-out because they know the system will just wash them up and that will be the end of it."

The first season of For Life essentially covers the first 9 years of Wright's experience while in jail. This season, topics like Black Lives Matter and social justice are addressed and Wallace finally reenters society. "There are 5 different Aarons I'm playing," shared British actor Nicholas Pinnock. "One is Aaron who is the prison rep. One is Aaron who is the father and husband to Marie and Jas(mine). One is Aaron with the prison warden and his relationship with her. Another one is Aaron just as an ordinary prisoner. And then you have Aaron the lawyer...and then in Season 2, we have a sixth layer. There's Aaron on the outside."

An unspoken source of strength lies in Marie who has supported and served as a "ride or die" figure in the first season. When asked about addressing those who don't agree with her prior decision to move on to Wallace's friend, Bryant pointed out her character's humanness. "Marie had to make some hard choices when Aaron was sent away. They may not be things that people agree with. 'Oh, she's with his best friend' or whatever, but she was left holding the bag, literally," she pointed out. "Things aren't always so black and white. People have to make decisions based on where they are and what they feel they need to do at the time and everyone can have whatever opinion they want."

Watch VIBE's full interview with Bryant, Pinnock, and Jackson, who also co-executive produces the show. New episodes of For Life premieres Wednesdays at 10 pm ET on ABC.

‘Black Panther’ Sequel Will Reportedly Begin Filming In Atlanta Next Year

Filming on the highly anticipated sequel to Black Panther is set to begin next summer. Marvel Studios will start shooting the Ryan Coogler-directed sequel in July 2021, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“The series are the priority, “ a source told THR of Marvel’s film strategy going into next year. “Ramping them up takes a lot of focus. The movie machinery is well established.”

The shoot will last at least six months. Princess Shuri, the character played by Letitia Wright, who plays King T’Challa's sister Princess Shuri, could take on an expanded role given the death of Chadwick Boseman.

Narcos: Mexico actor Tenoch Huerta will reportedly join the cast, while Lupita Nyong’o, Angela Bassett and Windsor Duke are also expected to return for the second installment of the Marvel film.

In September, Black Panther’s executive producer Victoria Alonso denied rumors that Boseman would appear in the film via CGI technology. “There's only one Chadwick, and he's not with us,” Alonso said. “Our king, unfortunately, has died in real life, not just in fiction, and we are taking a little time to see how we return to the story and what we do to honor this chapter of what has happened to us that was so unexpected, so painful, so terrible, in reality.”

Boseman, 43, passed away from colon cancer in August.

There’s A Petition For LeVar Burton To Become The New Host Of ‘Jeopardy’

While fans are still mourning the death of Jeopardy host Alex Trebek, the Canadian broadcaster’s passing leaves an opening at the game show and the internet has been leaning towards LeVar Burton as a possible replacement. Not that Trebek can ever truly be replaced, but an online petition has been launched in hopes of Burton taking over the job.

The onetime Reading Rainbow host tweeted the petition on Thursday (Nov. 12). “Even if nothing comes from it, I can’t tell how much I appreciate all y’alls love and support!”

Even if nothing comes from it, I can’t tell how much how I appreciate all y’alls love and support! 🙏🏾♥️

Petition · Make LeVar Burton the next host of Jeopardy! · https://t.co/60lC1WCD61 https://t.co/QFxedpuWpU

— LeVar Burton (@levarburton) November 12, 2020

So far, the petition has received more than 64,000 signatures and counting.

“Between hosting 21 seasons of the educational Reading Rainbow, playing the brainiac engineer Geordi La Forge on Star Trek: the Next Generation, and filling the roll of Kunta Kinte in the ever important mini-series Roots, LeVar Burton has inspired and shaped the minds of several generations of trivia-loving nerds,” reads the petition which was launched to show Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc. and Jeopardy producers Mike Richards and Harry Freidman, “just how much love the public has for Burton and how much we’d all love to see him as the next host of Jeopardy!”

Trebek began hosting Jeopardy in 1984. He helmed the show for more than 30 years before announcing his pancreatic cancer diagnosis in 2019. Though the 80-year-old beloved game show host passed away on Nov. 8, he pre-taped enough Jeopardy episodes to air until the end of the year.
