By now, we all know that James “Ghost” St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick) isn’t the most innocent man around — in fact, he’s an outright criminal — but there’s no way he can go down like this.
Since the start of Season 4 of “Power,” the federal government has accused St. Patrick of murdering a federal agent Greg Knox (Andy Bean), and they are going after him hard. The only problem is, despite the overwhelming evidence against him, he really didn’t do it.
He was framed. Like really framed.
But that’s practically what every one says when they’re accused of murder and they have no real alibi, which means no one is really taking him seriously.
So, here Ghost is — in prison awaiting trial for something he genuinely didn’t do, and it’s so frustrating to watch because there are a billion other things the prosecution, including Angela Valdes (Lela Loren), could have arrested him for like drug dealing, fraud and even murder (just not Knox’s murder).
There were three whole seasons where St. Patrick was committing big crimes left and right and all around town, but nah. He’s about to be on trial for something he didn’t do, and that’s just not right. It doesn’t feel right that the biggest and most powerful drug dealer in the city would go down for a petty murder he didn’t commit.
And that’s the only reason why we’re certain that Ghost is most likely going to get out of this little mess he’s been placed in. An insignificant murder is beneath him. He’s better than this.
