Angela Valdes Gotta Go. Along With Everybody Else But Tasha and Tommy. Kthxbi.

Do you watch Power? I watch Power. I hate Angela Valdes. She must be stopped. She must die.

I didn’t always feel this way about Assistant United States Attorney Angela Valdes. Before I wanted her to die, I was rather okay with her morally bankrupt homewrecker role on the show. See, Ghost, or Jamie (St. Patrick) as she calls him, was selling her tremendous cream (not just a dollar and a dream), taking her on vacations to kill people, running a nightclub and offering her the sun, the moon, the stars, even the mountains. I mean, truly, Jamie wanted to give her the world. And she was mostly playing her part, trying to fit in with his inspid scheming and ain’t shitness.

Mostly. Unbeknownst to her, she was chasing Ghost the entire time while trying to take down a drug cartel run by Lobos. If you watch Power, none of this is news, or even interesting. The truth is, you’re only reading this because you, too, (probably) agree that Angela must die.

So let’s just talk about that; to hell with background. Before we do that, I must provide a very thorough and extensive disclaimer.

Thorough and Extensive Disclaimer: There are no saints on this show, except Ghost and Tasha’s daughters (the baby who gets the Judy Winslow treatment is a daughter, right?). Tariq ain’t shit. Ghost ain’t shit. Tasha I fucks with the long way, but she ALSO ain’t shit in that she only wants Ghost to be a criminal and never wanted to see that man rise above; drug dealers don’t get regular citizen dreams. Keisha is straight. Tommy, oddly, is the person I hated the most early on in the show but have found myself rooting for more and more to the point that if Tommy decided to kill everybody – EVERYBODY – and move to, say, Toledo and start over with new friends, I’d be vocally supportive of this move. Tommy murked Holly over Ghost and Ghost acted real unbothered by it. Bruh, if Tommy did Ghost, I really can’t say I’d be upset. Then again, we’d have no show and this shit is supposed to go for three more seasons. Oh, I also hate Kanan, but at the very least, “to thine own self be true.”

Kanan killed his own son, his own flesh, in cold blood and didn’t give a fuck. I REALLY want him dead, too. But you have to at least give him credit for being the same horrible human to everybody. Though I think he’s developing a soft sport for Tariq even if he initially just wanted to use him to get back at Ghost.

So yeah, everybody must die. But Angela should really catch an L of tremendous proportions first. Why do I want her gone?

I’m glad you asked.

The same reason you want her gone: she ain’t shit. Angela, somebody who at some point knowingly continued dealing with a drug dealer, almost got his son expelled from school because her gun wasn’t locked away, kept banging the drug dealer even though she knew about the wife and family, etc. SOMEHOW decided that he must go down for a murder she can’t even prove he committed. The murder of a person she was ALSO BANGING, largely for opportunistic reasons (though Greg also wasn’t a saint and was high-key creepy). Angela is petty.

You can’t be petty dating a drug dealer, even if you ARE a damn federal prosecutor. She’s so petty that she showed up at that man’s job and had him arrested AT HIS JOB in front of his employees and patrons. Just damn petty. I’m all for being petty. But you can’t be petty AND have power and authority. That’s not okay, y’all.

Angie is manipulative. So is Ghost. They deserve each other. HOWEVER, you can’t be petty AND manipulative and Ghost isn’t petty. Angie though? She’s so petty that she arrested her ex-boyfriend for killing her current boyfriend who she only went back to because her and Ghost were donezo.

You know what? I’m using a whole lot of unnecessary words right now. You hate Angie. I hate Angie.

Angie must die.

(Again, Angela isn’t alone in musting to die, but right now, she must die so that others may also die.)

  • I need to watch Power at some point. Angela sounds so bad that she’s good. It looks like a great year for Women characters on TV. First Coco in Dear White People and now Angela in Power. I wonder who is next?

    Oh, and read this. I knew I was onto something with them whips and chains: https://www.vox.com/conversations/2017/6/27/15873072/google-porn-addiction-america-everybody-lies

    • MsCee

      That was realllllyyy interesting but totally NSFW…as a woman of size, I’ve always had my sneaking suspicions about men and their odd stance on “BBW’s” (I hate that term).

      • It’s about cash flashing. It’s expensive to be skinny in this era, so having a skinny woman (or being one) is a way to show off wealth. And this isn’t the first study on search engine searches to reveal that preference. The problem is that we live in an era of cheap food and expensive trainers.

        • MsCee

          Oh wow. Never thought about it from that perspective. I just find it interesting how men approach you when size is involved. For examples, “I’ve never dated a bigger girl BUT I’d date you.” Or, you see pics of all their exs and they’re smaller women…but for whatever reason they continuously contact you and try to date you. I’ve always thought it was just a impress the homies thing…not so much a financial position thing.

          • The ideas in the last sentence aren’t mutually exclusive. There’s a reason that “making it” for a dude means nice clothes, a fly car and a skinny woman. They’re all hard to acquire.

            • MsCee

              I guess I see myself as hard to acquire…so size is almost a non factor in my world. But I get what you are saying.

        • That is interesting because there was a time where the opposite was true. Heavy women were the most desired because weight=wealth.

    • LMNOP

      That article was so interesting. I wonder what percentage of people watch p*rn, I feel like that was an important missing detail.

      • It’s virtually all men and like 80% of women. With men, it’s to the point where when researchers wanted to find a control group for a study on pr0n, they couldn’t find anyone.

        • LMNOP

          Wow, I knew it was most men, but I didn’t realize it was 80% of women. Now I’m like “hmm, am I missing out?”

  • ValerieTheTenderoni
    • AKA The Sauce

      She’s chexy…is she on power?

      • ValerieTheTenderoni

        Yes she is Tasha lol

        • AKA The Sauce

          I may need to rethink this…

          • Jennifer

            Naturi Naughton is so good on this show.

  • Soula Powa

    The searing hatred PJ and those that agree with him have for Angela is the same hatred I feel for Tariq’s character. That bum had the world given to him and wants to be a wannabe gangster to get back at his Dad.

    Boy, if you don’t have the LA Coliseum full of seats.

    • Sigma_Since 93

      Boys get that way when you mess with / over they momma

      • Soula Powa

        Sure. He should have a regular breakdown like his private school friends. Throwing in with Kanan and his crew will get him tortured and killed. Maybe is character is meant to be a cautionary tale. I dunno, he’s just too stupid to be allowed to live much longer.

        • Jennifer

          But, Tariq doesn’t know everything we know about Canaan, right?

          • JulianWithTheRedCorvette

            Nope, they haven’t told that boy nothing.

            • Sigma_Since 93

              They don’t want him to know they still bout dat life. All they need is a Dame Dash son situation and get exposed.

          • Shay

            The fact that Canaan is an older man trying to be homies with him should be enough info for him to be weary.

            • Deeds

              You would think, but teenagers are stupid.

      • cakes_and_pies

        You mean the Momma whose hand he blocked? I’m not one hit kids, but fire would have been slapped our of him.

        • HottSauce&BrownSuga

          They shoulda BEEN knocked fire from dat boi!!

    • ValerieTheTenderoni

      I hate Tariq too. He is disrespectful and angry for no reason. If we are keeping it 100% why is he mad because his dad was with Angela? Well they are no longer together so again why is he so mad?

      Why is he trusting this random man over his father? He don’t know him. So quick to believe what a scarred up random man would say over his family.

      • panamajackson

        Tariq isn’t angry for no reason. He found out his father ain’t sh*t and that’s who he idolized. HOWEVER, he’s acting out a little bit too much.

        • Jennifer

          He’s being a teenager.

        • ValerieTheTenderoni

          I can see him being mad for a few months but at the end of the day Jamie is still his dad. I would not believe anyone random man’s stories about my dad to be true. Lil boy ungrateful.

        • Shay

          It doesn’t explain kicking it with some random old dude that pops up out of no where, they your friend Dre warned you not to get cool with, and that also hates your father. He ain’t thinking pedophile? Why is he not weary of this man’s motives?

          • Kaanan does have a pedo vibe. Alarm bells would’ve been ringing.

            • Wise Old Owl

              He just 10 years….I wouldn’t trust his rusty a$$ with a pitbull puppy…

              • Wise Old Owl

                Canaan just did 10 years in the pen….I wouldn’t trust his rusty self with a pitbull puppy…..

    • Kelly Kell

      Tariq is getting on my nerves but lets not forget he’s supposed to be an impressionable teenager. Kaanan punked him into submission.

    • Ms. Madam CJ Skywalker

      But a lot of surban/ well off kids do this tho. Adventure seeking to validate their “blackness”.

      Esp if they are pissed at their parents,,,during a divorce/ separation….

      I don’t blame Tariq. This seems about right.

      • This comment deserves a post by itself. Well said!

        • Ms. Madam CJ Skywalker

          Why thank you! I would love to hear other options on this topic too.

          I’m just tryna earn my keep in these here VSB/VSS streets. :)

      • UrbanNortheast

        I keep watching Tariq like, did no one teach this child about stranger danger?!

        • Ms. Madam CJ Skywalker

          Lmao. Well how else would a young thug test his gangsta? Gotta be out in these streets. *sarcasm*

          Tariq forreal just trynna replace the disappointment his father created.

    • E_Deshon

      I thought i was the only one. I was cursing his little spoiled a** out. Damn dummy.

  • Sigma_Since 93

    I rooted for Angela once; she saw the man Ghost wanted to be and wanted to rock with that man. She knew Ghost ran the streets from back in the day. If Ghost was able to divorce himself of his ties in season 1, this would not be an issue but Lobos had something to do with it. Now I just want her to break a heel, fall, hit her head on the desk, and die.

    • Sweet Potato Kai ?

      LOL that’s such a specific death, but I like it.

      • Sigma_Since 93

        This way Ghost can’t be held responsible! lol

        • Sweet Potato Kai ?

          I want Tommy or Tasha to do it though.

          • MissRosé

            I need it to be Tommy. Tasha would be too petty…Tommy is that niqqa.

            • Sigma_Since 93

              See Tommy would get sniffy prior to doing the job and things would go left. If Ghost goes down, it’s going to be like how Omar went out.

            • Sweet Potato Kai ?

              Tasha got it in her though. I’m good with either one.

    • UrbanNortheast

      Yeah, and Tasha didn’t seem to want James to be that man – I don’t think the fact that Tasha always called him Ghost, even to his face at home, was an accident. And James himself wanted to be that man, so at the beginning I could see why he’d be drawn to the person who wanted him to be better.

  • Marra

    When Angie had the unmitigated gall to show up during that search warrant i almost threw my shoe at the tv! She really thought that that was okay. Tasha is a better woman than me. And she really thought she was about to be on the case? Not only is she petty and manipulative, she’s DUMB.

    • Jennifer

      “When Angie had the unmitigated gall to show up during that search warrant i almost threw my shoe at the tv!”

      I cussed and cussed and cussed some more!

    • MissRosé

      She just wanted to see “the house” – she wasn’t searching for a damn thing.

      • ValerieTheTenderoni

        Yeah she was looking around and everything.

    • ValerieTheTenderoni

      She is very dumb! The thing is she doesn’t even care about Greg really. She only smashed Greg for comfort, in one scene looked at Ghost’s picture on Greg’s creepy obsession board. She is not doing this for Greg she’s doing it because she is angry at Ghost/Jamie.

    • HottSauce&BrownSuga

      She really thought she was gonna work on the case “So will I be 3rd chair?”

  • MsCee

    Am I the only one that doesn’t mind Angela…Tasha gets on my nerves sometimes. She is definitely ride or die #goals though. The only time Angela tried it in my eyes was when she attempted to comfort Raina as she was simultaneously having their home raided.

    • panamajackson

      SHE THE FEDS ON HER BOYFRIEND!!! You can’t be the FEDS at your boyfriend yo.

  • Mr. Mooggyy

    ……..I have no dog in this fight! I will live vicariously through y’all! Maybe one day, I will sit down and watch it!

    • Kas

      Too soap operaish for me.

      • Mr. Mooggyy

        Yea. I watched like an episode and was like, eh. Plus my attention span with shows I can’t binge watch is at an all time low! But I’m working on it!

      • Val

        You know you watched All My Chirrens back in the day.

        • Mr. Mooggyy

          Speaking of…..I used to watch that and General Hospital with my grandmother, back in the day! I had no choice!

        • miss t-lee

          I did.
          I used to tape the show back in HS. That was my junk!

          • Val

            Yeah, the Chirrens was good for a while there.

            • miss t-lee

              VERY!

    • miss t-lee

      *pulls up a chair*
      I ain’t seen not one episode…lol

      • Mr. Mooggyy

        Shows that are a series like Power, I’d watch an episode or two. I’d miss the third. At that point, I’m like, fuck it!

        • miss t-lee

          I don’t have cable, so I’d have to put in effort to watch. When I have to do that, I’m normally like “f*ck it.”

          • Mr. Mooggyy

            I don’t have Showtime (or whatever channel this comes on)! So, i’m definitely not watching that now. Even though Kodi is a thing, I’d rather not!

            • miss t-lee

              I think it’s on Starz…lol

              • Mr. Mooggyy

                I knew it started with an “S”. That’s all I had….

        • LMNOP

          Gotta watch them on Hulu or Netflix or something. TV needs to work around my schedule, not the other way around.

          • Mr. Mooggyy

            Indeed!

          • miss t-lee

            HA!!!!

      • Val

        *sits next to T*

        • miss t-lee

          We got queso and margaritas.

          • Jennifer

            You can share that queso.

            • miss t-lee

              Of course!

          • Sigma_Since 93

            Where’s the good liquor?

            • miss t-lee

              Did you bring some?

              • Sigma_Since 93

                Well the way my flask is set up…..

                • miss t-lee

                  Out you go.

          • Mr. Mooggyy

            Patron? QTNA

            • miss t-lee

              Herradura sir.
              Don’t insult me with that Patron swill.

              • Mr. Mooggyy

                No need to get fancy on me! I’m a simple man! I’ll deal with the homie Jose if I need to!

                • miss t-lee

                  Much better tequila out there Moog. I want better for you.

                  • Mr. Mooggyy

                    I’m a whiskey man! But I had some Anejo 100% Agave tequila from Mexico that was on point! I need to go back and get some more!

                    • miss t-lee

                      I bet!
                      Did you sip it?

                    • Mr. Mooggyy

                      Of course! I know a lil tequila etiquette! That is definitely not shot or mixing tequila! Next time I need to get the extra Anejo! It was a bit out of my price range at that time!

                    • miss t-lee

                      *daps*
                      I’ve never tried to the sippers. Gonna save that for a Mexico trip so I can hit up the distilleries.

              • Mr. Mooggyy

                My lil cousin turned me on to Hennessy Margaritas! I was skeptical at first! But it does the trick!

                • miss t-lee

                  I don’t like Henn, man.

              • You fancy huh?

                • miss t-lee

                  I can be.

              Yeah Kas, here’s a pile of tomatoes for you. You just enjoy your tomatoes and leave the good snacks to us.

              • miss t-lee

              • Kas

                Don’t you have some pre-schooler to go discipline?

            • Val

      • miss t-lee

        Only reason I know about it, is because of twitter…lol

      • LMNOP

        Wow, that’s dedication. Or maybe the opposite of dedication.

        *Note to self: learn more words.*

      • Mr. Mooggyy

        Sheesh Hugh!

    • PurpleIntrovert

      I’ll join you. I don’t have Starz and I can’t binge watch anything.

    • MsSula

      Same here. Never saw the appeal.

  • Mizwest

    Angela should have taken the job offer out of town….

  • heyheyno

    I need Keisha and Tasha to beat her up first. Then maybe three episodes later she gets taken out. I can’t stand her. I’m tired of Tariq too. These kids parents come out of the hood and make a better life them. Why does he want to be a thug so bad? I want this little boy to get beat up as well.

    • Sigma_Since 93

      Keisha needs to clear the air and slap Tasha first for Shawn and her business first

    • HottSauce&BrownSuga

      Tariq needs his azz whipped!! His parents NEVA jump in his ish like I KNOW mine would smh

  • MissRosé

    Can someone tell me why Dre won’t just tell Tommy about Kanan?? Like if Dre is legit having Ghost’s back, then why wouldn’t he tell Tommy knowing good well what Kanan has planned for Tariq??
    #AlsoAngelamustdie

    • panamajackson

      I forgot to say this: DRE NEEDS TO DIE TOO.

      • MsCee

        Dre is definietly gonna get it before Angela does…UNLESS he has some kinda well thought out extreme master plan to save his a$$.

        • HottSauce&BrownSuga

          He’s not smart/savvy enough to get outta this one, Tommy gone have his azz!!

      • Hadassah

        So in essence, the show should just die too.

      • Kelly Kell

        Lol

    • Sigma_Since 93

      A) Cuse it reveals his dirt
      B) Kanan would cap him first if he even thought Dre would tell
      C) Tommy and Ghost would cap him

    • Kanan will kill his daughter.

    • Ms. Madam CJ Skywalker

      I think Dre just wanna be on the winning squad. #KD

      He lost respect for Kanan after he killed his own son, but he’s afraid that he gon’ get got too.
      I also think he’s afraid to leave the streets all the way alone, so he can’t really commit to Ghost either.
      Tommy, don’t really like or trust him, so….

      • MsCee

        You can’t get ish past Tommie.

        • Sigma_Since 93

          Tommie is coming for Dre’s receipts

          • MissRosé

            I guess they’ll just make us wait. Tommie from season 1 would have followed him and got those receipts.

          • ValerieTheTenderoni

            “Who is Slim for real this time”

        • ValerieTheTenderoni

          Love him lol

          • MissRosé

            He stays paranoid and alive!

      • grabo2003

        I see the KD shade.

        • Ms. Madam CJ Skywalker

          I joke I joke, I kid.
          All love to da hometown kid #PGallday
          I was low key trollin’…

    • ValerieTheTenderoni

      EXACTLY. Dre cute and all but I need him to THINK. Tommie looked so fine each time he was questioning him lol

    • Jennifer

      I didn’t understand that either, so I went and got a snack during that part.
