Brayden and Effie are hiding a secret they want to take to the Grave, but it will come to light in season 3 of Power Book II: Ghost. Once Tariq finds out the truth it will be explosive.
“For Brayden and Effie, obviously it’s kind of weird, and kind of a little bit awkward, because they’re holding something from Tariq,” series star Michael Rainey Jr. tells TVLine.
Rainey went on to say this about his character “oblivious” to the notion that Effie and Brayden were involved in the murder of Lauren, Tariq’s onetime girlfriend, “so he’s just thinking everything is fine and dandy.”
He would then point told his co-stars Gianni Paolo and Alix Lapri, “And these two, they’re over here trying to figure out how they’re going to, you know, escape the whole situation without the truth coming out. They’re trying to figure out how they can get the truth out without Tariq losing his mind.”
Another story this season will focused on the murder of Monet Tajada ‘s son Ezekiel “Zeke” Cross, who was killed by her husband Loronzo Tajada.
“She lost her baby,” Mary J. Blige said. “They were reconciled, almost… and then he gets killed.” Also gone: Zeke’s promising future in the NBA, which would’ve made it possible for Monet and her family to get out of the illicit pharmaceuticals business.
“She also lost that exit strategy, which was him, because she doesn’t want to be in the game anymore,” Blige adds, chuckling ruefully. “And now, she doesn’t have either.” Bottom line? “She’s not doing well.”
