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.
