This season has seen power change hands multiple times – from Lobos (Enrique Murciano) to Milan (Callan Mulvey) from Kanan (Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson) to Jukebox (Anika Noni Rose) and from Ghost (Omari Hardwick) to Tommy (Joseph Sikora). It’s also been an interesting power dynamic shift between Ghost’s AUSA girlfriend Angela (Lela Loren) and scorned wife Tasha. (Naturi Naughton.)
Some of the power changes have been good. Tommy’s evolution from often disregarded sidekick to the character most fully in power at the end of Season 3 has been a great leap for a character that always seems secondary to Ghost’s ambitions. Tasha’s growth as both an actress and a character has given her the best arc on the show. Ghost, who once seemed to have an answer to every problem, became vulnerable this season to both his own emotions and his rapidly changing spot on the drug dealing chart.
