Power fans convinced major ‘plot hole’ completely changes the final episode and Ghost’s killer – The Sun

POWER fans are convinced that a massive plot hole has completely changed the final episode as we know it.

Viewers watched in horror as the beloved James St. Patrick, also known as Ghost was killed by his own son Tariq, but this huge blunder seems to have spun the final reveal on its head.

The final five episodes focused on the death of Ghost (Omari Hardwick) from the perspective of all the different suspects, before the final episode revealed Ghost's son Tariq (Michael Rainey Jr) actually pulled the trigger and shot his own father.

One fan on Reddit (via the Express) has discovered a mistake in the timing and execution of the heinous act and posted a detailed video showing how the various points of view stack up over the final few episodes of the show.

They wrote: "So my friend and I found a plot hole with the fact that Tommy saw Tariq and was also able to talk to Ghost before he died. I made a lil timeline video on why that shouldn't have happened."

The clip shows when Dre (Rotimi) heard the gun go off, which then moves to him driving away from Truth nightclub to escape, to then seeing Tommy (Joseph Sikora) standing outside the club.

However, we also see Tommy inside the club talking to Ghost who is lying on the floor in agony after being shot, but when the two moments were put together side-by-side, the timing doesn't match up to the moment Tariq looks over the balcony and sees Tommy next to Ghost.

So what this indicates is that from two different perspectives, Tommy was both inside and outside the club at the time of the shooting.

Sikora, 43, recently cleared up fan confusion regarding the show's final episodes which showed Tasha (Naturi Naughton) beg Tommy not to shoot her, but in some episodes earlier, she just walked away.

The actor said: "Every episode is supposed to be from a different character's point of you," he said. "It's a dramatic take on how we remember events happening different from another person.

"You will find that every scene is slightly different as they don't use the same footage."

Last week, Power boss Courtney Kemp has revealed the two real-life figures who inspired the character of James ‘Ghost’ St Patrick.

In a Q&A with fans, the showrunner said the drug lord – played by Omari Hardwick – was inspired by famous rapper 50 Cent, as well as her own father.

She said: “Ghost was inspired by my Dad and 50 Cent.”

Courtney denied one fan’s theory that Ghost could’ve been inspired by Lemond Bishop in The Good Wife (Mike Colter).

Courtney explained: “Lemond Bishop isn’t scary. He’s not really that frightening. He was played a little bit frightening, Mike Colter really played him beautifully. But it’s not the same kind of intensity as Ghost.”

Power season 6 is available to watch on Netflix.
