Power fans expose huge 'plot hole' in Ghost's prison trial after surveillance mix up


When Power first aired on Starz in 2014, it became an instant amongst gaining fans across the world. It’s been a year since the last episode aired and fans who have been rewatching the show have exposed a major blunder involving James ‘Ghost’ St Patrick (played by Omari Hardwick).

Ghost was the owner of a brand new club and lived in a high-rise apartment with his wife Tasha St. Patrick (Naturi Naughton) and his children.

However, despite seemingly having it all, Ghost led a double life – by day he was James, a successful family man, and by night he became Ghost, New York’s biggest drug kingpin.

Alongside his best friend and right-hand man Tommy Egan (Joseph Sikora) the two would distribute drugs across the city and murder their enemies while trying to dodge law enforcement.

With this going on Ghost reconnected with childhood friend Angela Valdez (Lela Loren) and sparked a secret romantic relationship, without realising that she was the government attorney for the FBI

In season four, Ghost is sent to prison for the murder of FBI agent Greg Knox (Andy Bean) despite being innocent.

Greg was killed by fellow FBI agent Mike Sandoval (David Fumero) after he discovered that Mike was a mole.

Mike found a way to pin Greg’s murder to Ghost by planting the gun used in a cabinet at Ghost’s club Truth.

It was during the scene of Ghost’s trial where fans spotted the blunder, one viewer took to Reddit to post about it.

“Basically, it’s Ghost’s own nightclub, so why would he not have had his lawyers watch his surveillance footage at Truth, which would prove he didn’t put the gun there?

“If I’m not missing something then that’s a pretty bad plot hole, he should have been locked up for one night, not days and days and multiple episodes.”

Another Power fan argued: “The FBI would have taken the surveillance footage so it would have been in the prosecutor’s hands.”
