‘Power’ Recap – Season 5, Episode 3: Are We On The Same Team?

Power Episode 503

Source: Starz / Starz

We’re only at episode 3, but Season 5 of Power is already looking like a wild ride.

BlANCAS INVESTIGATION AND ANGELA’S JIMENEZ CONNECTION

Officer Blanca Rodriguez continues to put the pressure on Angela as she discovers more connections between Ray Ray and Raina’s murders. Her investigation brings her to a Detective Leary who reveals Tariq’s inconsistent account of what happened that night. Everywhere Blanca turns, Angela is involved. Angela knows it’s only a matter of time before Blanca discovers the truth, so after meeting with Tasha to devise a game plan, she figures out a temporary solution. Angela sends Donovan to transfer all information regarding Raymond Jones to federal custody and away from Blanca’s jurisdiction. If Blanca wants to solve this case and discover Angela’s true motives, she’ll have to go about it another way.

Meanwhile, Angela has a major breakthrough in the Jimenez investigation. She discovers that Alicia Jimenez isn’t Diego’s lover, but his sister and the other command of the Jimenez cartel. She also has a new love interest in Steve Tampio from D.C. Angela hasn’t faired well with work romance before so I expect this to go extremely well…

DRE AND DIEGO CREATE A NEW ORG CHART

Dre holds a meeting with the organization to officially install Arturo as the new Toros Locos leader. Diego is there to witness the meeting and questions whether Lorenzo’s supporters will acknowledge this new regime. Arturo invites Diego to see how discipline is applied to the group. Dre cautions against it but Diego isn’t hearing it. The Jimenez don’t really give two f*cks about law enforcement, tact, or anything else. 2-Bit and Spanky are tight because Dre allowed Arturo to take the credit for the Lorenzo hit.

Diego watches as Arturo kills the traitors in the Toros Locos but continues to wonder how Arturo knew about Lorenzo’s coup. Diego then tells Dre he’s making Cristobal number two in order to keep the Toros in check. Diego also delivers Dre an ominous message to stay away from his sister or else. Wandering eyes will be cut out and fed to whoever crosses the boss!

POLITICS AS USUAL BETWEEN TATE AND GHOST

Councilman Tate and Ghost move into the next phase of the Queens project, as they woo potential investors. Linda (played by Garcelle Beauvais) seems unimpressed with their project and the competing visions between Ghost and Tate. Ghost decides to take the initiative and meet with Linda to persuade her to reconsider investing. With a little wine, and a lot of sex, Ghost seems to have the advantage…until he reconvenes with Tate to hear the harsh truth.

Tate reveals Linda’s advances were a test of Ghosts’s professionalism, and he failed. Tate isn’t going to be Ghost’s pimp, but Ghost berates the Councilman for exploiting his family through ambush press conferences and photo ops at funerals. They decide to calm hostilities between one another and handle business however they need to in order for the Center to be built.

‘Power’ Recap – Season 5, Episode 2: Damage Control

Power Season 5 Episode 2

Source: Starz / Starz

On the latest episode of Power, the St. Patrick Family hasn’t properly grieved Raina. Over the course of 3 weeks, the family dealt with death, revenge, and the need for damage control.

They hope to alleviate the impact of Raina’s murder, but those unaddressed feelings finally erupted. Tasha mourns Raina daily with an abundance of tears and regret, while Ghost silently suffers (and attempts to call Angela for comfort). Tasha needs an outlet to channel her grief, but Ghost is apprehensive and doesn’t want to invite others into his business. During the counseling session with other grieving parents, Ghost discourages Tasha from sharing their experiences, causing a rift between the two. Even more tension is generated when Councilman Tate ambushes the St. Patricks with a press conference to speak about Raina and his community endeavors.

Tommy’s piss poor management skills reared its ugly head in multiple ways this episode. Jason Mitic returns to demand Tommy replace the product lost when the Jiminez burned down the warehouse and hijacked drugs from the now lost NYC port. Mitic drafts Ghost and Kanan as complicit partners to recoup his lost drugs. Tommy also has to answer for the Italian hitters being killed by Dre. Tommy decides to be as forthcoming with Vincent and to ask forgiveness, claiming that he took care of the uber. Sammy, Teresi’s right hand man, lied on Tommy’s behalf and punched him in the grill to say “I’ll never lie to them about you again.” Tommy continues to paint himself into impossible corners with brute force techniques to feel more exclusive.

Joe Coffin, Episode One – Ken Preston

Ken Preston - Joe Coffin, Episode One  artwork

Joe Coffin, Episode One

Ken Preston

Genre: Horror

Publish Date: August 30, 2015

Publisher: Ken Preston

Seller: Draft2Digital, LLC


". . .delivers gore, scares, pathos, and even some laughs in a bloody bundle that is much greater than the sum of its parts." -David Dubrow, Gingernuts of Horror "This was genuinely the best read I've had in a long time and I cannot wait for more from Joe Coffin!" -Alli, Amazon review.   Get ready. Joe Coffin is on his way. And he's mad as hell. Joe Coffin is fresh out of jail, but going straight is the last thing on his mind. The sickos who murdered his wife and child are still out there, and he's going to get revenge. The problem is, Joe Coffin is in much deeper than he realises, and his wife might not be as dead as he believes. Violent, gory, profane and explicit, Joe Coffin is for mature readers only. Interview with the author: Q – So, what makes the Joe Coffin series special? A – A few different things, really. I love vampires but I'm not interested in the sparkly romantic types crowding the bookshelves at the moment. In writing Joe Coffin I wanted to go back to the idea that a vampire novel should be full of gory horror, and that the vampires would be nasty and almost indestructible. But I also love British crime movies, and I thought why not pit my vampires against a British gang and throw in a gutsy female journalist as well, with a sprinkling of humour amongst the brutal action. So yes, the Joe Coffin books are a mix of genres. The other thing to bear in mind is that they are written in episodic format, much like a TV series. That way they remain tightly plotted and fast paced. Overall, the Joe Coffin series is written to keep you turning the pages – and I've made sure there's never a dull moment. Q – What's with this Season One in the title? A – Again, it's the TV series format. I love Netflix and Amazon Video, and I binge watch my TV shows now, instead of how I used to watch them, one episode a week. I wanted to reflect that idea in the books, and I hope you will want to binge read all four episodes in each season of Joe Coffin. Q – What order should I read the books in? A – You need to start with Season One and work your way through. If you don't start at the beginning you won't have a clue what's happening in the later books, as the story is tightly tied in together and progresses as you read on. Q – So, why should readers give these books a try? A – If you like modern horror, or vampire novels, I think you will like this series of books. Even if you're on the fence about the horror aspect, but enjoy violent crime fiction, I think you may well love these books. And they are lightning fast, with smart dialogue and great characters, and a hero you will love in mob henchman Joe Coffin. Thanks for reading!

Michael R Underwood

Genre: Fantasy

Publish Date: April 18, 2018

Publisher: Serial Box

Seller: Serial Box Publishing, LLC


This is the first episode in the first season of Born to the Blade, an 11-episode serial from Serial Box. This episode written by Michael R. Underwood. For centuries the Warders' Circle on the neutral islands of Twaa-Fei has given the countries of the sky a way to avoid war, settling their disputes through formal, magical duels. But the Circle's ability to maintain peace is fading: the Mertikan Empire is preparing for conquest and the trade nation of Quloo is sinking, stripped of the aerstone that keeps both ships and island a-sky. When upstart Kris Denn tries to win their island a seat in the Warder’s Circle and colonial subject Oda no Michiko discovers that her conquered nation's past is not what she's been told, they upset the balance of power. The storm they bring will bind all the peoples of the sky together…or tear them apart.

Amara Strikes Back: 8 Outrageous Moments From Episode 5 of ‘Love & Hip-Hop Miami’

VH1's Hip Hop Honors: The 90's Game Changers - Arrivals

Source: Greg Doherty / Getty

Love and Hip-Hop Miami’s drama is picking up and we get a sense of that immediately as episode 5 starts. We pick right up where last week left off with Shay and Liz confronting Prince and his “friend” Gabriel at the launch of his fashion line.

Things get heated quickly when Shay and Liz ceremoniously throw beverages at Gabrielle and Chinese Kitty. Security quickly comes in and removes Shay and Liz from the room but Chinese Nicky literally snatches  Shay’s wig.

Twitters breakdown of the mini rumble primarily focused on Chinese Nicky’s face and the wig snatching.
