Watch the new teaser for ‘Power Book III: Raising Kanan’ Season 2

When the show left off, Kanan Stark (Mekai Curtis) had left New York, hoping to lay low until the heat died down over the attack on Detective Malcolm Howard (Omar Epps). He spent an undisclosed amount of time out of state before returning to New York sometime later.

In the teaser for the show’s upcoming season, Raquel Thomas (Patina Miller) pulls him and the rest of their family together in hopes of getting everyone back on the same page.

“Family. Us. I know we got our differences, but at the end of the day, we’re blood,” she says at dinner, looking around at Kanan, her brothers Marvin and Lou-Lou Thomas, and her niece Laverne “Jukebox” Ganner. “And that’s way more important than any static that’s between us.”

Additional problems include apparent rivals like Crown Camacho and more importantly, Detective Howard, who will likely have it out for Raq for using Kanan to try and kill him.

Fans fear Raq’s ‘downfall’ will come in ‘Power Book III: Raising Kanan’ Season 2

Raq is capable of taking her family to the next level. But many fans don’t think she’ll survive the show, especially due to comments the adult Kanan makes in Power. They just aren’t sure how her death will happen. But after watching the teaser, some predicted the start of her downfall would happen this season.

“Gotta feeling Raq is going to have a downfall by the end of Season 2,” one fan wrote on Reddit, earning over a dozen upvotes.

“She’s gonna have a lot of enemies coming for her so she better be ready,” read a reply.

Others weren’t so worried, knowing how calculated and “coldblooded” Raq is.
