There seems to be one solution to all the problems, and that solution will present itself in “Power” season 5 episode 8. A preview video of the next episode shows James (Omari Hardwick) and Tommy (Joseph Sikora) making a move against Dre (Rotimi), but there is an alternative that they will have to consider.

A preview video of the next episode posted on YouTube shows James telling Tommy that they have to take Dre out. Tommy is also ready, but he will wait for the green light from his friend.

The relationship between James and Tasha (Naturi Naughton) will be further strained in the next episode. While Tasha blames her husband for everything that has happened to them, he blames Dre in turn.

Tommy can also be seen hiding in the corner of an alley, waiting to strike at Dre. While things are not looking so good for Dre, the character may still survive. According to the synopsis of the next episode, Ghost and Tommy will try to implicate Dre in the murder of Raina (Donshea Hopkins).

Dre and James are business rivals, on top of that Dre deals in drugs. This should be enough to get the prosecutors interested in exploring this angle in the investigation, especially if James plants some evidence, like the murder weapon.

Investigation against Dre should help close the case against James, his wife, Tommy and Angela Valdes (Lela Loren). Dre can be killed as soon as the investigation starts, to make sure he doesn’t have a chance to prove his innocence, and blame it on drug wars.

While James and the others work so hard to protect Tariq (Michael Rainey Jr.) The preview video shows Tariq taking a gun out, and he appears to be killing someone after Kanan (50 Cent) encourages him. James’ son appears to be on his way to prison if he continues on this path.
