Omari Hardwick

Omari Hardwick has "lived" as Ghost for so long - at least while the cameras are rolling - that watching the way things pan out on the final season of the show is a pain!

Without giving much away, many viewers of the American show know that the show is airing its final season. And while the main character, James 'Ghost' St. Patrick, has been able to dodge death through the show, it does look he is running out of options. 

So far this season, his love interest, Angela has died. This was a massive plot twist on the show, but for Ghost, it marked the closing in of the walls in his world. He'd once shared this elaborate plan to leave it all behind and elope with Angela and start a new life in some exotic island far away. To put the plan in perspective, this would basically meant he'd be leaving Tasha and the kids behind to deal with the repercussions of his drug trafficking business. 

But while that plan didn't go through, Ghost still went ahead and alienated his family and his biggest allies as power continued to get to his head. His closest friend, Tommy, is now fed up with Ghost's wishy-washy games, especially as his new political moves mean he could be placed on a snitch watch list in the streets. 

Angela is now dead, Tommy has been turned into an enemy, as has Tasha and Tariq.  Far from being the boss in control that we've all watched through the years, James is really falling apart this season and it's interesting to watch. 

For Hardwick, though, it's really tough watching the character he's portrayed so well for long, stumble into his demise. 

Watch it all unravel on the final season of Power, Tuesday at 21:30 on 1Magic, DStv channel 103.
