After the shocking ending of Episode 1, we’re going to see the aftermath of how Lauren actually survived and possibly what she can remember and exactly what she told Jenny Sullivan in Power Book II Season 3 Episode 2. And I really do think it’s crucial that we find out exactly how much Lauren knows and in turn, how much Jenny Sullivan knows. But more importantly ‘What is Jenny Sullivan’s next move with Laura?’
Now the rest of the crew, including Tariq St. Patrick, Brayden, as well as Effie, and even a few members of law enforcement, are oblivious to the fact Lauren is alive. Because Jenny worked hard to keep it that way. So we’re going to see them going about their normal business. A business that needs to start from scratch after the death of Mecca.
We learn how the diamond ring caught Noma’s eye and she and Obi made an introduction, striking fear into Cane, Brayden, and Tariq St. Patrick, who knows if they don’t move her product, they’re all dead. We will also see Tariq at Western Holdings and Lorenzo tasking Cane to get information on Zeke’s killer, which could very well backfire.
Power Book II Season 3 Episode 2 Spoilers
Now the title of Power Book II Season 3 Episode 2 is “Need VS Greed”. Now the term “Need VS Greed” is one that refers to the distinction between what someone requires versus what they desire beyond the norm. So when we think about need in terms of this group at this moment in time, it’s survival. They have to move no mouse product, otherwise, they know the consequences.
On the other hand, greed is something that’s driven by someone who wants power, powder, and respect. Especially when we link it to the game that Tariq, Effie, and Brayden are in. So the title could reference how we could see a conflict appearing within the group when it comes to how they work and what their end goals are. Because after all, in this game, everybody is out for themselves and there are no friends in the street. And Tariq will do very well to remember that, especially after the betrayal he faced in season 2.
But who’s acting for need and who’s acting on greed? I’m sure this is going to be a topic in the classroom now that Effie, Diana, Tariq, as well as Becca find themselves in the same class. And it really will be intriguing to hear the different perspectives, especially from Diana and Effie.
Now one thing I think we need to be mindful of when it comes to greed is Cane’s manipulation, something he learned when he was mentored by Mecca. The best way to get to Tariq St. Patrick is through the rich kid, Brayden Western. But the rich kid isn’t the way to Tariq anymore, it’s Effie. And that’s something that Cane seems to be exploiting. And no doubt something he’s going to continue to exploit until he gets what he wants.
Tariq And Crew
Now what Noma wants is for these guys to move their product and Tariq in the Power Book II Season 3 Episode 2 Preview says that if they don’t move their product, then Noma will kill all of them, who I can only assume he’s in conversation with either Effie or Brayden. But this is a hell of a lot of product, more than any of them have seen in their lives before, and so they need to make a plan because Noma and Obi don’t play games.
The introduction of Noma and Obi’s characters in episode one pours a really dark vibe to Power Book II Season 3, and even though Obi only had a few words to say, you could feel and sense his presence, he’s tough and no-nonsense, and he doesn’t take too kindly to any sort form of disrespect.
You get the sense that Obi is not fond of Noma’s decision to give Brayden Cane and Tariq St. Patrick a chance. And in fact, if it were up to him, I’m sure he would have put a bullet in all of them at Mecca’s penthouse, which now belongs to Monet.
A Mountain Of Product For Tariq And Crew
But on the topic of death, Power Book II Season 3 really does seem bloodier than ever before, as we see yet another body dropping which correct me if I’m wrong, could be at GTG’s old place based on these sofas. Now, who this could be? Who knows? Because we can’t get a clear look at the shooter either.
As the crew looks on at the mountain of products, we hear Brayden saying they’re overlooking the sick market and how those in Wall Street would eat this product up. And we know this is a business that requires energy, that these guys work in at the hedge funds and it’s all about the party life. It really is the perfect market to tap into.
Another clue who may get involved is Lucas Weston, because there was a subtle hint about how he was someone who’s not afraid to do a line or two from time to time, and he does seem like a bit of a rebel. So bringing his product to Wall Street will bring a number of people into play and also trace Western. Because we all know he’s not a fan of Tariq.
But we are going to see Tariq being brought in as an intern at Western Holdings. And as we’ve seen in the previous two seasons as well as season 6 of Power, he’s not afraid to seize the opportunity, especially when it comes to the Westerns.
But this time they need to be a bit smarter and wiser about how they move because the last thing he needs is to get caught up in here under the drug operation, especially because course correct got burned at the end of season 2. And considering Tariq is one strike away from being kicked out of Stansfield, he needs to be more strategic than ever before. So how they move in Wall Street is yet to be seen, but that will be one way
Effie Teaming Up With Diana
Now Effie is not at Wall Street and neither is Cain. So that is going to be interesting to see how both of those characters play a part in moving their share. But if we were to look at this logically, we know they have the locker boxes on Stansfield’s roof where we sit down and are in the Power Book II Season 3 Episode 2 Preview. So Stansfield may yet be another spot. So we could see Effie teaming up with Diana because we did hear Lorenzo tell Diana she needs to hustle at the same time.
Now one thing we do need to bear in mind is if she is working with Effie. I’m not sure if this is going to cause any issues because of how she’s with Tariq. But considering Diana may have a ride on Salim, I do think they could work together and keep a strict business.
Now with Cane, we know he’s all about the streets and he’s a soldier. But based on this Power Book II Season 3 Episode 2 Trailer, as well as some of the previous teasers, it may seem like he may have even set up his own gambling spot, which would be reminiscent of something Dre once did in Power.
Let’s talk about how Lorenzo says Monet won’t rest until the killer is found. In the Power Book II Season 3 Episode 2 trailer, he also tells Cane to handle it, but this is about to backfire on Lorenzo. So based on the episode synopsis, Cane will do as he’s told, and he’s looking into Zeke’s death and the first location is Mecca’s Hanger.
Now we all know this is where Zeke was shot and killed by Lorenzo at the end of season 2. So this could lead to Cain finding evidence against Lorenzo. Because surely at some point one of these kids will find out the truth.
So just to give this some more background and context, in one of the interviews that Mary J did before Season 3, she even referenced how everybody knows who killed Zeke apart from her. So we may very well come across the scenario as each episode goes by the kids sought to uncover the truth and potentially even use it for their own benefit. We all know Cane was to be the head of the Tejada organization and what is better way to gain leverage over Lorenzo?
Now, believe me, Lorenzo will soon be jumping when Cane says jump because Lorenzo’s made a huge mistake in telling Cane to handle it in terms of finding Zeke’s killer. Because I am so sure this is going to backfire on Lorenzo sooner or later.
Now also with Tejadas, Dru seems like he’s on Demon time, but he also looked beaten and bruised, so at some point in Episode 2 of Power Book II Season 3 we’re going to see Dru in a fight. But with whom he is going to fight is yet to be seen. But this is what we’ve been waiting for when it comes to Dru’s transformation. No distractions and he focuses on the game.
Now it’s time to show what he can do, because the last time he saw him in a similar situation, he pulled back and failed to kill EV. But will this time be any different? And who’s he going after?
Lauren Is Alive
Now with Lauren, we are going to see a flashback of how Effie supposedly killed her. She looks knocked out while she the car plunges into a river, but she later wakes up in shock. Everybody, including her parents, believes that she is dead. But few questions do remain.
We do have to remember it has been three months and if everybody believes she’s dead, including her parents, then I would have assumed in that time period that there should have been a funeral. The same goes for Zeke. This is why this funeral that we saw in the official trailer could very well be Lorenzo’s after all. But Jenny makes it clear that the only thing that’s keeping her alive at this moment in time is that everybody believes she’s dead. That goes for Detective Whitman and also Cooper Saxe.
Although sooner or later that will have to change. And when Tariq, Effie, Cane, and Brayden find out, they are in for the biggest shock of their lives. But what does Lauren remember? Does she remember that it was Braden who drove it to the woods? And does she remember that it was Effie who hit her out with the peace and tried to kill her? One of the hot topics also seems to be is she Jenny’s CI. And a lot of people do believe it is Effie. But I don’t think so, not yet anyway.
Jenny Sullivan’s CI is certainly Cooper Saxe because Effie’s actually tried to kill Lauren and I don’t see her working with law enforcement at this moment in time. However, that could very well change and it is one to keep an eye on. I really wouldn’t be surprised if Effie turns, especially when she has her back against the wall and realizes that Lauren is alive. But that’s just my perspective and breakdown on the trailer for Power Book II Season 3 Episode 2.
This episode will give us some more background and insight into how Lauren survived, and hopefully, we learn about what she remembers and what Jenny Sullivan actually knows. The team seemed like their point moves in place and Wall Street will be one of them. And in my opinion, Lorenzo will continue to just dig his own grave. So drop all your thoughts and perspectives.
