‘Power Book IV: Force’: Everything We Learned From Season 1

The first season of Power Book IV: Force is coming to a close. After leaving New York City, Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora) has made a name for himself in Chicago. Following the death of his best friend and business partner, James “Ghost” St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick), Tommy has begun a new chapter of his life while pushing out a new drug. Tommy has found himself entangled with the Irish mob, led by the Flynn family and Chicago Brothers Incorporated (CBI), a gang that runs the south side of the city.

As the first season of Force comes to a close, here’s everything we learned from season 1.

‘Power Book IV: Force’ could crossover with ‘Power Book II: Ghost’

In the first season of Power Book II: Ghost, Tommy disowned his nephew Tariq (Michael Rainey Jr.), so the pair aren’t exactly on good terms at the moment. However, there is still potential for a Ghost x Force crossover.

“I can’t tell you [if Tariq will seek out Tommy], but you know he’s definitely going to need uncle Tommy’s help at a point,” Sikora said via Express. Since Ghost and Force are set in the same time period, this doesn’t seem too far-fetched, especially since Tommy appeared in the season one finale of the show.”

Fans think that Tariq could pop up in the season finale.

“I think there’s no reason that Tariq couldn’t be on the Tommy show,” Sikora told Bevy Smith on her Bevelations podcast. “Because if anybody can find Tommy, I think that the incredible ability of Tariq may be able to track him down even better than the feds. We never know what Tariq has up his sleeve.”

“But yes, that is definitively why we call it the Power universe and not the Power world,” he continued. “I think the Power world existed within the five boroughs of New York, really, and the Power universe expands beyond that. And that is where Tommy is living right now, and it took somebody to progress that story out of New York, and who better than the favorite son of Queens, Tommy Patrick Egan.”

Everything we learned from ‘Force’ Season 1 so far

Since storming into Chicago following the death of Ghost, Tommy has uncovered quite a bit. He learned that his grandmother wasn’t actually dead as his mother Kate (Patricia Kalember) had told him. Moreover, he also learned that he has a brother JP (Anthony Fleming) that Kate abandoned.

Though he’s finding his way, Chicago hasn’t been so easy for Tommy. Dealing with the segregation in the city and the fact that teams don’t crossover has been a major challenge for him.

Also, though Tommy is vicious he also has a soft spot for the people he cares about including Liliana (Audrey Esparza) and Gloria (Gabrielle Ryan).

When will ‘Power Book IV: Force’ Season 1 Episode 9 premiere?

Episode 109, which is titled “Trust,” will debut on Starz on April 10, 2022. The official description reads, “Vic faces a devastating loss. Walter is ready to go to war and sends for heavy hitters. Tommy soon realizes he needs more power but is turned down by one of his closest allies and is forced to turn to an unlikely resource.”

When Force goes off the air for the season on April 17, we won’t be getting another Power Universe series for six months.
