Who Shot Ghost? Bow Wow And Other ‘Power’ Fans Shares Wild Theories

50 Cent and Bow Wow beef

Power fans are in a frenzy after this week’s mid-season finale and even Bow Wow chimed in with a wild theory.

50 Cent’s hit drama series Power is in its final season and has been full of twists and turns leading up to Sunday’s mid-season finale. The show has killed off several main characters since returning for its final hoorah in late August, including media mogul La La Anthony’s character, Lakeisha Grant, how was murdered two weeks ago. 50 Cent and fellow executive producer Courtney Kemp have made it clear that no one is safe on the STARZ show, and fans just found out just how true that is after the main character, James “Ghost” St. Patrick, played by Omari Hardwick, was shot and likely killed at the end of episode 10.

The final scene shows several cast members walking towards what the audience is made to believe is Truth nightclub, where Ghost is closing up shop alone. Throughout the episode, St. Patrick made enemies out of pretty much everyone in his immediate circle, and they all are all left with motives to want him gone. Suddenly, the viewer hears a gunshot, and Ghost’s body is seen falling from an upstairs balcony inside the club with a bullet wound in his chest, leaving fans to guess who the shooter could be. The hashtag #whoshotGhost quickly went viral as viewers shared their theories on social media of which character pulled the trigger.

One of those fans that chimed in was Bow Wow, who shared his hypothesis in the “Who done it?” hysteria. He said he believes it was 50 Cent’s former character, Kanan, who was killed off last season, which makes it a pretty wild guess. “I think my bro fif not dead!,” Bow Wow said, pointing out a scene in Sunday’s episode where Kanan pops up as a ghost that only St. Patrick can see. But Bow Wow seems to think Kanan was actually alive and somehow faked his death. “THIS IS POWER. NO WAY THEY WILL MAKE IT EASY FOR US TO GUESS WHO DID IT,” he said.

Fans were speculating on whether or not Ghost would survive the shooting, and Omari Hardwick seemed to have posted a pretty heartfelt goodbye to Power fans after the episode aired, leaving us to assume Ghost is really dead. We will all have to wait until the show returns on Jan. 5 to know what really went down and wrap up the final season of Power with or without its lead character.

“It is always your next move” -Napoleon Hill _____________________________ This rings true in every thing & every move we make in life…..or in fiction. Sometimes when the gift of which is given to the soul of a viewer or a listener is so definitive, lasting & powerful….the line between the 2 becomes blurred. Thank you Starz, producers, writers, directors, crew, teamsters & my beloved cast for trusting each other enough to aid majorly in this line being blurred. That is when programming shifts the culture. My belief is we accomplished that. Thank you fans for entrusting me with the job of quarterbacking this team of bandits who scored in stealing your hearts week in/week out for 6 yrs. Thank you @50cent @courtneyakemp @markcanton @shinybootz #CarmiZlotnik for your gifts & for knowing i was that QB. #ChrisAlbrecht ..thank you for the process. @gary_lennon for the wisdom.

A gift you are. @mrsjaeh thank you for the infamous prayer of me embracing my power months before this job was brought by God. A lasting prayer answered. **& to EVERY family member, friend, colleague & most imperatively…FAN who finds themselves at an impasse between that ever present Real & Fiction right now of whether your ghOst has become just THAT…a ghost…And are in rage because of it….i overstand your emotion & if Ghost has taught you anything…..watch the company you keep & keep the company you watch. ??
