The 14 Best Lines From 'Power' Episode 406 "New Man"

Not even 24 hours out of jail, Ghost must reckon with his past when he finally comes face-to-face with Kanan. Tommy however gets a job promotion, while Dre forces his own lethal "upward mobility."

Not even 24 hours out of jail, Ghost must reckon with a few enemies in his past both professional and personal. In Power episode 406 appropriately titled "New Man," Ghost tries his best to get back to the business of getting his club up and running, but must first tend to his old adversary Simon Stern, and his longtime enemy who's miraculously back from the dead, Kanan.

While Ghost is trying to take care of loose ends, Tommy's trip to Chicago proves suspicious. His superior Jason Mitchage offers him a job promotion, but not without a warning to get rid of Ghost entirely and back in New York Dre forces his own lethal "upward mobility" by eliminating the competition.

Check out the 14 best lines from Power episode 406 "New Man."

1. "I was thinking that we can start over. You know, put the past in the past.” Ghost

Ghost wakes up in the penthouse after having a nightmare about killing Marshall. As he looks over, he notices Tasha didn't sleep in the bed with him. Showered and ready for the day's business, Ghost meets Tasha in the kitchen and asks if they can reconcile their relationship. While Ghost maintains it's over with Angela, Tasha's hurt caused by Ghost's affair is not.

2. "Diversity is all the rage these days." Simon Stern

Seconds after having the chains removed and turning on the lights inside Club Truth, Ghost's old adversary Simon Stern walks in. Stern tells Ghost he loaned Tasha money while he was in prison but he'll forgive the loan if Ghost is willing to be the CEO and face of his new real estate investment. Ghost is less than eager to get back in bed with Stern but realizes he may not have a choice.

3. "Don’t f*ck this up.” Jukebox

Seeing Stern walk inside Truth, Kanan decides to hold off on kidnapping and killing Ghost. Jukebox, who's holding Tariq captive in Queens, calls Kanan demanding an update on the plan. Sensing K may be deviating, she warns him to not screw this up or she'll put a bullet in Riq's head for fun.

4. "Tasha, I want out. For real!" LaKeisha

Now that Ghost is home, LaKeisha meets up with Tasha to figure out what Ghost's freedom means in regards to her and her weave shop. Tasha is trying to keep it light and kee-kee the conversation away, but LaKeisha isn't playing along. She made it very clear she didn't want anything to do with their drug business to begin with, and definitely doesn't want it to go any further now.

5. "I need him off the table entirely." Jason Mitchage

Upon arriving in Chicago, Tommy meets his superior Jason Mitchage who tells him he wants Tommy to be the distributor for both coasts; a job promotion Tommy wasn't expecting. However in order to do so, Jason demands Tommy kill Ghost.

6. "Trust me, I'm loyal." Dre

Julio confronts Dre about his meeting with Kanan but Dre bypasses the potentially dangerous moment by lying and telling Julio he simply denied Kanan's request for readmission into the game. Dre tries to convince Julio he’s a loyal dude and proves it by setting up a meeting--unbeknownst to Julio--with his former gang, the Toros Locos.

7. "I was better than good. I was great." Jukebox

Tariq grows anxious while waiting with Jukebox and continues to question Calvin’s whereabouts. After she gives him some more lean, Riq asks Jukebox how she got the nickname and she tells him it was because she used to know all the songs on the radio. As Tariq drifts into sleep, he asks if she was any good and Jukebox doesn't play fake humble.

8. "I don't know how to trust you, Tasha." Ghost

Ghost comes home from Truth after learning Tasha accepted money from Stern and is furious. Tasha says she had no choice since the feds froze their assets and made an executive decision to take care of the kids. After the two calm down Ghost comes to the realization he doesn't trust Tasha. Oddly enough, Tasha doesn't trust him and that's about the only thing these two can agree on.

9. "Julio's life is up for grabs." Dre

Dre takes a meeting with the Toros Locos to finally rid himself of Julio in order to move up in the ranks as distro. Thirsty for revenge, a Toros Locos said Ghost bought Julio's freedom. Dre however notes since Ghost is out of the game, Julio's debt needs to be paid.

10. “Rules of the street, little man. Blood in. Blood out.” Toros Loco 

Julio falls for Dre's trap to meet up and is surrounded by three members of the Toros Locos. Not going out without a fight, Julio kills one and before beating another one to death has his achilles heel sliced, which hinders his ability to continue to put up a fight.

11. "Yo, you lucky I’m cramped from being in that motherf**king trunk.” Tommy

Tommy tried to leave Chicago early but Mitchage insisted he stay. At a celebration, Mitchage gets Tommy liquored up and then knocks him out and stuffs him inside a trunk. When Tommy wakes up, he's taken to a wooded area where he sees an open grave. Jason is prepared to kill Tommy after Petrov alleges Tommy killed Milan on his own without receiving proper orders. Mitchage's girlfriend Tatiana whispers in Jason's ear Petrov lying, sparing Tommy's life.

12. "Couldn't get rid of me that easy, motherf**ker." Kanan

While Ghost is walking to his car Kanan finally corners him. Ghost doesn't have much time to take in the fact that Kanan, who he thought was dead, is alive and well. Kanan tells Ghost he has 'Riq and if he wants to see his son alive he needs to do what he's told forcing Ghost to get his hands dirty once again.

13. "What's a den?" Tommy

Seconds before Tommy thought Mitchage would kill him, he closed his eyes and saw Holly's face. On his drive back, Tommy notices he's not far away from Cleveland where Holly lived and makes a stop. He goes to a home being sold and viewers soon learn the realtor was Holly's uncle who used to sexually abuse her when she was 9-years-old. Still missing Holly (and as almost a tribute to Holly) Tommy beats her sexually abusive uncle to death with a baseball bat.

14. "See you around lil n***a." Kanan

After robbing Tommy’s stash spot to get the money needed to save Tariq, Kanan agrees to work with Ghost to free his son, but it doesn’t take long for Jukebox to realize the change in plans. Jukebox makes Kanan reveal his real name, confess to the game he was running on Tariq and admit he killed his own son, Shawn. Surprisingly Kanan who has grown fond of Tariq, kills Jukebox when he notices her making a move and instead of killing Ghost and 'Riq,  takes the money and runs.

Rihanna's Savage x Fenty Show Creates An Inclusive Silhouette For All

No matter your shape, size or physical ability, sexiness can be achieved. It's a mantra retail corporations have pushed but with Rihanna's Savage x Fenty Show in New York this week, it was a smoldering reality.

On Tuesday (Sept. 10) Brooklyn's Barclays Center was flipped into the entertainers' lair filled with 32 flavors of what womxn really look like. Thick thighs, ambassadors of the #littlebootiesmatter movement and members of the LGBTQ+ community sashayed across the stage in a confident spirit only Rihanna can conjure.

The second annual show took their talents to a new level by partnering with Amazon Prime to film the show. Cameramen jumped to the stage every now and then to catch models like Joan Smalls, Bella Hadid and performers Halsey, Big Sean and Tierra Whack. But the theatrics also matched the energy the models exuded–dominant, sweet, flirty and most of all assertive. It's a behavior assumed to be behind closed dungeon doors and for women who keep up Eurocentric beauty standards.

With Savage x Fenty, those stereotypes are thrown out the window. The brand has done well in that market. It's why it makes it the perfect segway into the next generation of lingerie brands. Critics have used their most witty phrases to compare the event to Victoria's Secret Fashion Show but as fans will see Sept. 20, nothing is like Savage x Fenty.

Their mission of inclusion didn't stop at the beautiful bodies and negligees on stage. The music paid homage to the hot girls we've loved before (Tweet, Eve) as well as dancehall riddims and Latinx house music.

As Rihanna continues to dominate the fashion/beauty industry (her LVMH collab, Fenty Beauty) the Savage x Fenty show will be just one of the many moments in fashion history we'll revisit.

Before the big reveal next week, see how it all went down from inside the event below.


7:35 pm: The Dean Street entrance to Barclays Center looks like the outside of a club. There are models, rappers and fans who printed out fake barcodes to get in. After a few minutes of starting at the "Standing Line" section, I realize I'm in the wrong line.

7:40 pm: Doors aren't opening until 8:00 pm, so I get to enjoy some fresh air while checking out influencers wrapped in glitter and baby doll lingerie. Perhaps it shows what's to come this evening.

8:00 pm: The doors have officially opened. Like noted in the email, phones were placed into uber-secure YONDR pouches. I'm not mad at it all. With Amazon filming the show, it's only right that the audience is immersed in the experience.

8:13 pm: Sections aren't open yet but the red carpet is. Hip-hop is in the building (early) thanks to Migos, Big Sean and newcomer CHIKA.

8:16 pm: Some guests are starting to look uneasy without their phones. I’m so glad watches are still a thing–shouts to Casio, specifically A$AP Ferg’s collaboration design I rocked.

8:23 pm: In the bathroom and a favorable viral group comes in with plenty to say. “It's funny how celebrities act like they don’t nobody but they see everybody. Like, I know you see me." I feel you sis.

8:40 pm: Was asked to say hello to Rihanna on her Savage x Fenty Insta and totally fumbled it.

I let Rihanna down. 

8:54 pm: We're finally able to enter the show. The stage set up is a perfect combination of MC Escher stairs and gloomy Roman windows with a minimalistic twist.

Spotted: Bronx rapper Maliibu Miitch in a cozy fur, country star Kasey Musgraves in a perfect green fit, Chanel Iman and Ashley Graham with their mom glow as well as R&B duo LionBabe.

9:10 pm:  There’s a lady with a very big feathery hat sitting below me, she smells good.

9:20 pm:  Wow, it’s Dascha Polanco.

9:45 pm: Now that we're all seated, the DJ slows down the tunes and lights turn down low. It's starting.

9:46 pm:  Rihanna is front and center as ten dancers of all sizes flex (and look comfy) in black lingerie. The choreography is on point. The ladies are busting out their best bruk wine to the audience's delight.

9:47 pm:  The Savage looks are separated by color. Plenty of dancers and influencers hit the experimental runway. Bella Hadid looks too cute as she waves at the camera.

9:49 pm: Big Sean comes out (with his abs) and performs "Clique" before jumping into "Bezerk" with A$AP Ferg.

9:51: Blue and yellow bring us into the next phase of the show, paired with a sexy deep mix of Tweet’s “Oops (Oh My).” Cara Delevingne gets everyone in line and I love it.

9:54 pm: Red is the vibe and 21 Savage looks so happy in his blue steel walk. Women dominate the stage with accessories but one can help but appreciate how inclusive the show is. Short, tall, curvy, petite and people with disabilities are owning the stage.

9:56 pm: Laverne Cox came out of nowhere and just bodied her walk! It's a moment fans will truly adore. Tens across the board.

9:57 pm:  Migos perform “Pure Water”... in pure water. The pool is small and the guys seem to be unbothered by it. Shouts to their socks.

10:03 pm: My handwriting goes to s**t once Normani takes the stage. Her moment makes me feel at ease about copping the new collection.

10:06 pm: I'd like to give props to the musical director. The blend of Wiley's "Boasty" and Eve's "Who's The Girl" is giving me life.

10:11 pm: It's time for another performance! DJ Khaled, Fat Joe, Fabolous take the stage but as predicted, Tierra Whack shines the brightest.

10:18 pm: Lace caps, sheer pants are the move in the lingerie game and I’m with it.

10:20 pm: Queen Rihanna comes out to a standing ovation. If she didn't walk away, I'm sure we would have clapped all night.

Spotted on the way out: Dave East, Mack Wilds, VIBE cover stars Naturi Houghton and Lala Anthony, Rapsody, Misa Hylton, Monica, Kehlani (who photographers couldn't get enough of) and actor Jharrel Jerome.

Chance The Rapper Shelves Tour After Birth Of Second Daughter

After Chance The Rapper and his wife Kirsten Corely welcomed their second baby girl, the Chicago native announced on Monday (Sept. 9) that he would be postponing the majority of his "The Big Day Tour."

The "Hot Shower" artist posted on his Instagram the surprising news, mentioning 2019 to be "one of the greatest years of his life," but that is has been "very strenuous having to divide [his] time and energy between family and work."

I thought it over for the past week and I’ve decided to push back my tour. This year has been one of the greatest of my life; Marriage, new baby, first album etc. But with it being so eventful it has also been very strenuous having to divide my time and energy between family and work. When Kensli was born, I went on tour 2 weeks later and missed some of the most important milestones in her life, but more importantly I was absent when her mother needed me the most. At this point as a husband and father of two I realize that I can’t make that mistake again. I need to be as helpful and available as possible to my wife in these early months of raising Kensli and Marli. I apologize because I know how many people were counting on seeing me soon, but I hope you’ll understand and forgive me in time. Tour kicks off Jan. 15th and you can still get tix or your refund if you are unavailable at chanceraps.com & a few of the shows are still being rescheduled as well so stay tuned. I love you guys AND LITERALLY CANT WAIT FOR U TO WITNESS THIS SHOW 🙏🏾🙏🏾 SIDENOTE: 9/28 CHICAGO AT UNITED CENTER IS STILL ON AS WELL AS “LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL FEST” “IHEART MUSIC FEST” & “MIAMI BEACH POP FEST”! ❤️

A post shared by Chance The Rapper Owbum (@chancetherapper) on Sep 9, 2019 at 12:20pm PDT

While the tour is only postponed for five months, Chance's hometown will be the last city at the United Center on Sept. 28 to watch him perform for before his much-needed hiatus.

ABC7 Chicago reports that concert ticket holders can get refunds and more information at chanceraps.com.
