Power Book II: Ghost with Angela Valdez’s nephew

Published

on

The Force Universe loves to sprinkle Easter eggs from time to time, and in the fourth episode of the third season of Power Book II: Ghost, longtime Power viewers spotted a familiar face – someone who could change the rules of the game later in the series. .

In the episode titled “Land of Opportunity”, we meet with a DEA agent named Angel “Junior” Young (Kevin Rodriguez), who is helping Detective Blanca (Monique Gabriela Curnen) on the latest investigation. The two are shown at the crime scene after a motel shootout between the Tejada clan – Lorenzo (Berto Colon), Kane (Woody McClain) and Drew (Lowell Adams-Grey) – and some arms dealers, one of whom happens to be Blanca’s criminal informer. Junior makes a brief appearance when he explains to Blanca that her informant was injured and taken to the hospital and is in critical condition. Junior’s little scene may seem insignificant, but it could be a hint to something more for fans of The Power who know who he’s connected with: Federal Attorney Angela Valdez (Lela Lauren).

That’s right, the same Angela who was entangled in the lies, deceit and crimes of James/Ghost (Omari Hardwicke) in the original series The Force, which also featured the character of Blanca, and was killed for it by Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora). Angela met her demise at the start of season six at the hands of Ghost’s best friend-turned-enemy, all because he feared the ADA would send them to jail for their many crimes. It didn’t help that Blanca relentlessly pursued the trio to get them all involved in the cause.

Angela is survived by her sister Paz Valdes (Elizabeth Rodriguez) and nephew Junior. The latter first appears in the second episode of the sixth season, “The Authority”, when he and his mom, Paz, mourn Angela’s death at the church. It is there that they learn that the Phantom paid all the expenses for Angela’s funeral.

Paz framed the Illusive Man for her sister’s murder and swore revenge on him on Angela’s behalf. She even agreed to Angela’s autopsy and dug up Angela’s grave to obtain evidence that Paz hoped would prove the Illusive Man’s guilt. But it all crumbles in front of Paz when Angela’s own crimes are exposed – and sabotage any chance of her sister or nephew getting her pension (which would pay for Junior to go back to school and keep his ailing grandfather in a nursing home). ).

After several thwarted plans to destroy the Illusive Man, Paz decides to take matters into his own hands: he wants to kill the Illusive Man himself for ruining his family. However, when his mom realizes what he’s planning to do, Paz rushes to stop him and says, “I’ve already lost Angela, and I’m not going to lose you either.” Paz then attempts to kill the Phantom at his nightclub, but changes her mind at the last minute.

The last we see Junior in “The Force” is when he and Paz find out that the Phantom is actually killed in his club, according to a TV news release. They later meet with Ghost’s attorney, who reveals to Paz that he left her money in his will. Because of this, she tells Junior that he can finally go back to school.

It’s unclear what role Junior will play in Power Book II: Ghost, but it’s no coincidence that he’s now a DEA agent working with the same detective who tried to kill both Ghost and his aunt. The fact that the investigation Junior is looking into could lead to the Tehadas (who are also working with the Ghost’s son, Tariq) probably only means more trouble lies ahead.

New episodes of Power Book II: Ghost air Fridays on Starz.
