Holly, Angela and Tasha maybe different women, but all three will go to great–sometimes misguided, but always necessary–lengths to protect the men they love.
In episode 206 of Power titled “Why Her?” viewers continue to see the consequences of Ghost’s actions swirl out of control. Ghost must try and keep an eye on Angela as her investigation closes in on Tommy, all the while trying to successfully push double the contraband for Lobos before he arrives for his payment.
And while Tasha and Angela are different sides to the same coin, both women are coming to terms with Ghost’s deceit. Tasha is still reeling from her husband’s affair, while Angela struggles to accept the fact that Ghost and Jamie are the same person. Emotionally paralyzed and unsure if the man she loves is a good guy trapped in an ugly world, Angela gives Holly a chance to provide substantial evidence that proves Jamie is Lobos’ distributor. Holly then tries to move heaven and earth to get the Feds off her back only to have her efforts backfire.
There’s nothing a woman won’t do to protect the man she loves. Check out the 9 best quotes from the latest episode of Power.
