EW.com — Tonight’s episode reached peak critical mass as Ghost, Angela, Tommy, and Dre all faced the consequences of their actions. Since Angela decided to be with Ghost, she’s been struggling to reconcile with his life of crime. Now that Ruiz is in federal custody to testify against Lobos, Angela is well aware her future with Ghost is at stake. Angela tells her lover there are too many obstacles for them to overcome. When Ghost asks her to elaborate, Angela uses a bit of misdirection by reminding Ghost he’s still married to Tasha.
Tommy, still shaken from the Koreans’ drive-by shooting, gets a surprise visit from his mother, Kate. Holly witnesses firsthand the unconventional relationship Tommy shares with his mother. As they snort lines of coke together, Kate asks Holly how she and Tommy met. When Holly says they met at work, Kate remarks that sleeping with the boss is a good way to avoid work. Holly is too distracted to trade barbs with Kate, secretly texting the Jamaicans she hired to kill Ghost.
Dre comes home from work and finds his baby daughter in the arms of Kanan, who reminds Dre of his betrayal as he stands precipitously close to the window. Dre pleads with Kanan not to hurt his child, offering to spy on Ghost in return.
Tommy finds out from Julio it was the Koreans who tried to kill him, and guesses it was Ghost who saved him. He tells Holly he’s headed over to Truth to thank Ghost, but Holly says it’s too late and tells him about the hit she put on Ghost. Tommy throws her against the wall, enraged by Holly’s actions, but she’s unapologetic. “You weren’t going to do anything, so I did it for you!” Their argument escalates quickly when Tommy orders Holly to leave and she taunts him, “Now that Ghost is dead, you don’t exist!” Tommy blacks out and chokes Holly to death.
Ghost and Tariq are rear-ended on their way to the basketball game. Ghost steps out of the car and comes face-to-face with the Jamaicans. Ghost looks back at Tariq (who has on his headphones and can’t hear anything) and closes his eyes, ready to meet his fate, when his security detail comes to the rescue and takes out Ghost’s would-be killers.
Ghost visits Tommy and is shocked to find Holly’s dead body. Ghost assures his best friend he’ll take care of everything. Ghost buries her remains, but not before handing Tommy the engagement ring he had given to Holly. The estranged pair realizes the only way they can survive is to team up and take down Lobos together.
