How ‘Power Book IV: Force’ Brought Back [Spoiler]
[Warning: This article contains spoilers for the Power Book IV: Force Season 1 finale.]
Tommy Egan left New York in Power Book IV: Force and hasn’t looked back yet. He even cut off contact with his mother, Kate Egan, following their rift in the original TV show. He created a new organization and built a new life in Chicago, but his world was disturbed by a character return in the Power Book IV: Force Season 1 finale.
‘Power Book IV: Force’ brought back Kate Egan
Shortly after arriving in Chicago, Tommy found out through his grandmother that he had a half-brother, JP Gibbs. JP was raised by his father, Herman Gibbs, after Kate abandoned them to be in New York. She had Tommy sometime later with mobster Tony Teresi and raised him to believe he was an only child.
When the truth came out, JP naturally wanted to meet with Kate. Tommy was immediately against it, telling JP about how toxic she is and how he’d be better off without her. But JP reached out anyways, leading to Kate visiting. She had an emotional reunion with JP and looked forward to building a relationship with him and her grandson, D-Mac.
Kate wasn’t the only original character who turned up in the finale of ‘Power Book IV: Force’ Season 1
Tommy was there when they reunited, but he couldn’t stay long, as the Flynns were coming for him. Convinced Tommy was behind the hit on him and Gloria, Vic Flynn had sent soldiers to murder him. But when it came out that Walter Flynn had ordered it, his life was spared.
Sadly, the same could not be said for Liliana, who was fatally shot by Claudia Flynn while trying to save Tommy. As a result, Tommy terminated his business relationship with Claudia, who had been supplying him with Dahlia. Now, he’s partnered up with Diamond Sampson, who has stopped working with his brother, Jenard, after finding out Jenard was behind the attempt on his life.
At the end of Power Book IV: Force Episode 10, law enforcement officials were seen discussing a new player on the Chicago drug scene. “Whoever he is, he’s making big plays, he’s dangerous, and he’s not just passing through,” one said, before producing an image of Tommy.
Word also got back to New York, where Blanca Rodriguez is pushing to investigate Irish activity in Chicago. Her superior, Juan Medina, promptly shut her down, but surely, Blanca will continue to look into it.
Which show comes on next?
So far, the release date for Power Book IV: Force Season 2 has not been shared, but it’s “coming soon,” according to a trailer for the Power Universe.
Until then, be on the lookout for the next season of Power Book III: Raising Kanan. That show is the third chapter in the Power Universe and revolves around Kanan Stark in the years before he was tragically murdered. The aforementioned trailer confirms that Raising Kanan Season 2 will premiere on Starz in the summer of 2022.
