Fans of Power Book II: Ghost are amped for the second season. The series following the life of Tariq St. Patrick has proved to be just as compelling as the original show, boasting strong ratings and a solid fan base.

Actor Justin McManus (Jabari Reynolds) has dropped a big hint about what could happen in season two. He said that while Tariq seems to have staged the perfect coverup for Reynolds’s murder, the late professor left behind a trail of evidence that implicates Tariq in the crimes Reynolds discovered before his death.

A recap of what happened to Jabari Reynolds in ‘Power Book II: Ghost’

After the death of Tariq’s father, James “Ghost” St. Patrick, Reynolds positioned himself as a source of support to a uninterested Tariq.

Over the course of the show, Reynolds becomes increasingly fascinated with the young student, even tailing him around campus and using covert questioning tactics to elicit certain information from him. He funnels everything he’s learned into a book that is poised to revive his career as a writer.

When he finally confronts Tariq about his dealings, he tells him he’ll keep it a secret in exchange for total insight into his life. Tariq agrees and goes to meet with him to receive part of an advance on the book, but Cane Tejada arrives and shoots Reynolds after overhearing him asking about his family.

Bleeding out, Reynolds begs for his life and swears to scrap the book. But letting him live is too big a risk to Tariq. He finishes the job using the gun Cane took from Officer Ramirez to make it look like Ramirez killed him before going AWOL.
