It’s been a week since Ghost’s closed-casket funeral on ‘Power Book II‘ where we saw who we believed to be James St. Patrick being laid to rest at a high-profile ceremony that attracted all the usual suspects including shameless slimeball Rashad Tate who served as a pallbearer for a photo op, of course.
But the lingering question STILL remained: Is Ghost REALLY dead–like, DEAD dead?
Welllll, according to Naturi Naughton, he’s very dead and not coming back:
“I hate to break it to you guys. I know many of our fans are like, ‘This is not, no, he’s going to come back, he’s going to be Ghost’, our show doesn’t do that – when people die, they really die,” revealed Naturi Naughton in an exclusive interview with DigitalSpy.
“I hope this is not a spoiler… I’ll just say that in this case Ghost doesn’t come back to life, he really is dead. I’m sorry,” she added.
This comes after the iconic character was shot and killed by his own son Tariq in a shocking scene played from multiple perspectives in a multi-part “Power” finale.
Now, if you remember, Kanan (played by 50 Cent) returned to the series after seemingly being roasted crispy in a warehouse fire so there’s a slight glimmer of hope for anyone expecting Ghost to join hit spin-off “Power Book II.”
“I know the character of Ghost will sometimes be pushed back when I’m playing another role. I am more than one dimension. However, if someone calls me Ghost on the street that’s fine but I am not scared of this character to follow me. I did not quarantine my talent when I was playing Ghost. I did nine movies during that time,” said Omari Hardwick in an interview with Page Six.
