Ever since the Power Season 6 mid-season finale depicted the shooting, and possible murder, of James “Ghost” St. Patrick, viewers globally have wanted to know who pulled the trigger with the hashtag who shot Ghost?
With only five episodes in the series left, a social media user posted a leak spoiling the shooter. However, Curtis “50 Cent” seemingly changed the ending after the clip went viral.
A day after Season 6 Episode 13 aired, a social media user leaked a video of Tariq holding a gun to his father, saying, “I can’t go back.” Ghost responded, “Hey, son, I love you, okay?”
Then, Tariq pulled the trigger, shooting his father in the chest. The video went viral on Twitter shortly after that, with fans claiming they knew Tariq was the assailant all along.
A few hours later, 50 Cent uploaded a video of Tasha holding up a gun, who said, “I can’t let you destroy my son.” She then shoots the gun and then looks in disbelief. The Power creator captioned the clip, “Now stop playing with me!”
In a recent Instagram post, he revealed that they shot different endings for the hit series because leakage was a huge possibility.
Due to the life he lived and his ability to evade punishment, Ghost had several people who wanted him dead.
As reported by The Sauce, after the show came back from the mid-season break, each episode showed a suspect from their vantage point leading up to Ghost’s shooting. So far, his old acquaintance Andre Coleman, late lover’s sister Paz Valdes, and former best friend Tommy Egan have all been cleared.
This leaves his son, Tariq St. Patrick, ex-wife Tasha St. Patrick, disgruntled ADA Cooper Saxe, and dirty councilman Rashad Tate as possible shooters. However, viewers have narrowed in on Tariq and Tasha whom people believe pulled the trigger.
At the end of Tommy’s episode, he discovered Ghost’s dying body and looked up at the shooter in disgust. Tommy then raised his gun, but Ghost told his friend to “let it go.” He would only say that if the shooter was his ex-wife or his son.
So who do you think shot Ghost? Tasha or Tariq?
