The first season of Power Book II: Ghost picked up shortly after the earth-shattering events of Power, with Tariq St. Patrick grappling with a new world order: his father dead and his mother, Tasha, facing charges for the murder her son committed. With no better options, Tariq turns to the familiar drug game, entangling himself with a cutthroat family headed by Monet Stewart Tejada, that’s been at it far longer than him.
