‘Power Book IV: Force’: Tommy Could Get a New Love Interest in Season 2

In the first season of Power Book IV: Force, fans watched Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora) build a new life in Chicago. Following the death of his best friend James “Ghost” St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick), Tommy put the events of New York behind him. Now fans hope that in season 2, Tommy will be open to finding true love again.

‘Power Book IV: Force’ will showcase more of the old Tommy

Fans were thrilled when Force debuted. However, they did notice that Tommy was much less ruthless and brutal than he had been on the original Power. Now, Sikora says fans should expect to see more of the “old” Tommy moving forward.

“I’ll be up for a second and third season easily because I think there’s a lot more story to tell. I think Chicago as a city deserves it,” Sikora told Digital Spy. “And I think the fans deserve it to get to a place where we can live with less words and more time in Tommy’s psyche.”

Moreover, in a recent Instagram comment he shared that with new showrunner Gary Lennon on board, the writing for season 2 will be stellar. “The writing on season 2 is going to be [insert three fire emojis] tho,” he shared via Reddit. “@gary_lennon is in charge now (from the OG Power show.) He’s the best. Trust.”

Tommy could get a new love interest in season 2

As we saw, Tommy is still mourning the death of LaKeisha (La La Anthony), moreover, his causal romance with Gloria (Gabrielle Ryan) was over before it even started. Still, there is a possibility that Tommy could get another love interest in season 2 despite his lack of luck previously.

“I wonder if Tommy has hope for Tommy,” Sikora told Black Girl Nerds. “If Tommy finally gives up on love, love might find its way When you asked me about the career thing, I got the Tommy character right after I got married. Part of that was because I loved something more than I love acting for the first time. When you’re not looking and you’re not desperate, things find you.  With Gloria, Tommy wasn’t looking for anything — he was trying to get a drink and some mannish water or pepperpot stew. Unfortunately, she was already spoken for, and that sets up a huge amount of the problems in Season 1. Shout out to Gabrielle Ryan, who is absolutely beautiful and talented as a person. We’ll see. If he keeps looking for love, he might find it in the wrong places.”

Let’s just hope that this new love interest survives into season 3.

Chicago will continue to be a major character in ‘Force’

Upon his arrival in Chicago, Tommy didn’t expect divisiveness in the city. As we’ve seen, unlike in New York, the Irish mob, the Black gangs, and the Latinx gangs all work independently of one another. In fact, they are increasingly suspicious of one another and only have a tentative peace.

Tommy has learned the hard way how to navigate that. Still, despite the segregation of the city, Chicago is still a stunning city and it will continue to be a major character on Force.

“There is a lot of action, I really do appreciate that, I like that about the show,” he told The Wrap. “I think Chicago lends itself to that. There’s almost this urban wildlife happening. Chicago, even back in the 1890s, in the New York Tribune where it was first coined ‘go west young man, go west’ and find your fortune. So there’s always almost this western vibe, shootouts, and such. I’m sure that our showrunner, Gary Lennon, one of the most brilliant storytellers I’ve ever had the luxury of working with, is going to really utilize the background of Chicago as a character.”
