Tasha St Patrick (played by Naturi Naughton) has been put through the wringer during her time on Starz series Power. Not only did she have to endure the continuous infidelity of her husband James “Ghost” St Patrick (Omari Hardwick) but she was denied her own chance at happiness when her love Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith) was murdered. To top it all off, Tasha lost everything when she went down for her son Tariq St Patrick (Michael Rainey Jr) after he murdered Ghost.
What is Tasha’s ultimate fate in Power?
Ghost will pick up not long after Tasha is banged up in jail and trying to survive.
She will be forced to endure incarceration, knowing full well she has gone down for a crime she didn’t commit.
In some ways, this is almost like Ghost’s last act of revenge from beyond the grave.
Power’s creator Courtney A. Kemp previously said Ghost was either going to end up in jail or dead given the trajectory he was on with no happy ending in sight.
With Ghost now dead and gone, some fans might be wondering if Tasha is also on borrowed time.
Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, actress Naughton open up about whether Tasha’s story could finish and the character’s ultimate fate.
The actress said: “Now he’s dead and I’m the one in jail. They split it up.”
She continued: “I don’t know what her ultimate fate [si] and it’s actually a good question for the writers and what they’re planning because we still have to do this season.
“You know, we’ve done season one, but there’s still so many directions we can go as Ghost continue.
“So, I think her ultimate fate – I’m just grateful that she’s lived thus far. She didn’t get killed yet, because everyone dies.”
However, Naughton warned Tasha had pretty much hit rock bottom and wasn’t in the best place mentally.
The star said: “I don’t know, being in prison is probably one of the lowest places that she can be right now. But will she ever get out?

“And when she gets out for her life look like? I don’t know.
“So I think her ultimate fate is really up to the writers, because they actually choose what her ultimate fate will be.”
Naughton added: “I just step in and try to deliver the material.”
From her words, it looks like Tasha could be around for some time to come although she will face some tough moments ahead.
She is also Tariq’s raison d’etre and why he keeps striving to succeed both in college and to help save his mother.
Perhaps later on down the line, Tasha could also meet her maker but for now it looks like she’s safe – at least for this season
Tasha is also a major player, so to kill her off so soon after Ghost died seems counter-intuitive.
The writers are likely to bed in the new show and characters before slaying any of its established figures.
