James ‘Ghost’ St Patrick (played by Omari Hardwick) has a long list of enemies in Power, with several suspects in the frame for shooting him in the midseason finale. Ghost was last seen falling from the balcony in his nightclub Truth after being shot in the chest and while the likes of Tommy (Joseph Sikora) and Tariq (Michael Rainey Jr) seem like obvious gunmen, there is plenty of evidence to suggest it was actually new girlfriend Ramona (Cynthia Addai-Robinson).
Did Ramona shoot Ghost?
However, the series is no stranger to defying expectations and taking viewers down paths they did not see coming.
As such, several fan theories have emerged labelling Ramona as the shooter – and they’re pretty convincing.
Many predictions from Power fans stem from the theory Ramona is actually related to Breeze.
Breeze is never seen on Power as he was the former drug kingpin who would run the streets of New York before Ghost.
During the early days of their drug ring, Ghost, Tommy and Kanan (50 Cent) – who’s tipped to rise from the dead as a possible shooter – decided he had to be killed in order for their empire to thrive.
In doing so, Ghost was the one who pulled the trigger and shot Breeze in the back of the head.
He confesses to the killing to his son in the midseason finale, telling Tariq: “I didn’t want to kill Breeze. I loved Breeze. I was your age when I killed him.”
Later in the episode, Ghost speaks about his crime-ridden past during a hallucination in which he sees Kanan.
However, this time, Ramona appears to snap him out of the conversation – perhaps she heard him open up.
The admission combined with Ramona’s newfound involvement in Ghost’s life led fans to jump to conclusions.
It didn’t take long for fans to flood social media with the theories that they’d spotted Ramona’s link to Breeze.
One fan said on Twitter: “A good finale for power: Ramona shot Ghost, Ghost’s past comes back to haunt him, as Ramona is linked to Breeze, and she comes back for revenge years after.”
A second added: “Maybe Ramona killed Ghost in relation to that kid Breeze.”
While a third said: “Ramona killed Ghost. I think she’s related to Breeze. My thoughts.”
Should Ramona be linked or related to Breeze in some way, it would certainly explain her sudden involvement in his life.
However, another fan thinks she’s working in cahoots with a number of other characters in order to take Ghost down.
An eagle-eyed Power fan explained: “Ramona is who Effie (Alix Lapri) was reporting about Tariq to on the phone.
“She also set Q (Tyrone Marshall Brown) up with Tasha (Naturi Naughton).
“My guess is Ghost did some wild s*** to somebody in their family back in the day. Maybe they are related to Breeze.”
Breeze’s sudden involvement in season six has also led to certain fans predicting he was actually Ghost’s father instead.
Other evidence to suggest Ramona is the one responsible includes the fact Power fans never saw her leave Truth.
Her last interaction with Ghost was after the Kanan chat.
She tells him: “I know we still have to talk. Shall I meet you back at your hotel?”
Ghost seems more than happy at the proposal and the pair share a kiss, but Ramona is never shown leaving the premises.
She may well have stayed in Truth and snuck up on Ghost to shoot him.
As episode 11 hasn’t been released on Netflix this week, fans will have to wait until Power returns in 2020 to find out exactly who the culprit is.
Power season 6 returns to Starz and Netflix in January 2020.
