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.

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.
