The season five finale of Power aired on Sunday night. Look, for all of the criticisms of Power—and some of it is very, very warranted—when this season got good it got goodt. Delivert goodt. Slap yo’ mama with the same hand that you don’ licked off the barbecue sauce off your fingers goodt. Episodes 8-10?
So while I would love nothing more than to tell you everything that happened in the final episode, I will not do that. What I will do, however, is tell you different spoiler-free thoughts, emotions (with GIFs) I had while watching the finale episode of this season. We might be able to knock this whole thang out in under 500 words. Let’s see.
1. Maaaaaaaan...she real. She don’ laid the game down quite flat. Oh shit. So did they.
2. Poor lil tink tink. He ain’t wanna do that but he had to do that. Or so he thought. Hugs, my G. Hugs.
3. You really can’t trust nobody. Then again, everybody involved at this point is a criminal. EVERY.BODY.
4. Damn, homie, in high school you was the maaaaan homie...fuck happened to you? Just kidding. Don’t kill me, bro.
5. Listen, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do and Tommy is ALWAYS ready to do what he gotta do. Ralph Tresvant wrote a whole song about that. That shit was about love, though. Same difference. Back to the homie Tommy, though. Whew...though, dammit. Thought we had one. Almost.
6. This nigga Dre. Does he have CIA training or something? Also...he cold as shiiiiiiiiiiiiit, bro.
7. Oh shit...oh shit....oh shit. I feel a tingle. I’m getting excited.
8. Dammit...she right tho.
9. I do not see this ending well. Which means it might end up wonderful for my soul.
10. Oh...that’s fucked up. Ain’t no two ways about it. I meant it was fucked up when he said it last episode, but now its fucked up too. All over again.
11. Chekhov’s gun like a motherfucker. Hell of a plot-twist because you know this is finna get...yep, there it goes being misconstrued.
12. Naw bro...you ole ass ain’t shit motherfucker all on your own.
14. Is that an allegory????
15. Could it be????????
16. COULD IT BE????!??!?!??!?
17. Hmmm...I thought I’d feel differently. I mean I’m definitely like YAAASSSSSSSSS!
18. But I’m also like....yaaassss? Because you know, you don’t get a nigga back like that.
19. Or is it?
