How the ‘Power Book IV: Force’ Season 1 Finale Set Up Crossover With ‘Power Book II: Ghost’
At the end of the 2014 series Power, many characters went their separate ways and on to their own spinoffs. But their shared existence in the Power Universe means that anyone can pop up on another series at any time. Most recently, Starz rolled out the fourth chapter, Power Book IV: Force. Beginning after the shooting death of James “Ghost” St. Patrick, the series follows his best friend and close associate Tommy Egan as he tries to move forward.
With nothing holding him back, Tommy leaves New York and begins a new life in Chicago. He becomes involved with some of its most powerful men on his journey to becoming the biggest drug dealer in the city, including the Flynn crime family and the Chicago Brothers Incorporated. Although it’s a completely new world for Tommy, it seems like the show will crossover with Power Book II: Ghost in the future.
A ‘Power Book IV: Force’ and ‘Power Book II: Ghost’ crossover could happen
The main sign that they’ll crossover is the connection to the Serbian network.
In the final moments of Power Book IV: Force Season 1, viewers were transported back to New York, where word about the war had gotten back to Blanca Rodriguez. She took that information to her boss, Agent Medina, to see if he would open an investigation there. “This heavy hitter in New York I came across is dead, him and his whole crew,” she told him. “They were called the four henchmen. There’s dead Serbs too, plus local Chicago players.”
Medina quickly shut her down and told her he needs her to focus on other things, presumably referring to the investigation into Mecca’s death. Blanca has the lead on that, as shown in the latest season of Power Book II: Ghost. But it might not be the last of those discussions. As a Reddit user points out, Detective Whitman could be seen in Ghost Season 2 standing in front of an investigation board with members of the Serbian network on it.
It also had a note that the men were associates of Jason Mimic, who shared ties to Tommy and repeatedly came up throughout the first season of Force. This suggests the two stories could connect and bring in more characters from the other shows as the investigations continue.
Fans were thrilled by the possibility of a crossover between ‘Power Book IV: Force’ and ‘Power Book II: Ghost’
Many viewers agree that the shows will converge at a point.
“Yea its very clear Ghost & Force are going to intertwine,” read one Reddit comment. “In fact, I think its the sole reason Sgt. Rodriguez was brought back even after being disgraced in season 6.”
“Yeah looks like it. I’m excited about this,” said another.
“A tension reunión between Tariq and Tommy will be very interesting,” a third fan wrote. “They will be forced to work together and maybe even make up.”
The last time Tommy and Tariq were together, Tommy told Tariq he never wanted to see him again. But Joseph Sikora, who plays the hot-tempered gangster, can’t see it staying that way.
“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,” he said in a previous chat on Instagram Live.
New seasons of both shows are now in the works
Power Book II: Ghost is expected to return later in the year, following the conclusion of Power Book III: Raising Kanan Season 2. While the exact release date is still uncertain, Starz has confirmed it’ll be “soon.”
Then, Power Book IV: Force Season 2 should arrive. Sikora told BlackFilmandTV.com that the hope is for the show to return within a year, but he couldn’t say for sure.
