Power “No Friends on the Street”

There are so many moving parts to both the legitimate and drug businesses. I don’t know how Jamie keeps a handle on it all. In the legit world, we’ve got Simon Stern making Jamie’s life ever more difficult. Not only did he buy the building when Jamie was distracted, but he installs Josh as the new GM. And even thought Stern said he’d allow Jamie to guy his share back when the club hits a 20% profit, which we know it will because of the laundering, Stern has tasked Josh with preventing that. He wants them to learn Jamie’s secrets and then steal Truth out from under him. The one good thing, if you can call it that, about Stern making Jamie is errand boy is that he’s got a perfect cover to be in Miami. It’s only a matter of time before someone takes Pink Sneakers out. But will it be Jamie or Kanan?

Jamie’s definitely out of his league when it comes to moving all that product. Lobos delivered even more cocaine than promised, but Jamie and Tommy just don’t have the network to handle all the weight. So most of it’s sitting in the warehouse and that, to me, seems dangerous. Now that Julio’s been warned to get out, I wonder how much longer they can count on his loyalty.

While Jamie told Tasha he took care of the Angie situation, it is absolutely not handled. Now that Jamie knows she’s an AUSA, he’s trying to find out what, if anything, she’s got on him and Tommy. His snooping turns up some files on Nomar, but it looks like they’re in the clear. Little does he know that Angie’s got enough intel to finger Tommy as Ghost.

And what about Holly? I like that she won’t allow Tommy to lie to her, but she’s not to good with the truth either. She knows she’s in trouble when Tommy comes at her about calling Jamie “Ghost” in public. She’s quick on her feet, I will give her that. I don’t know if I believe she loves Tommy. She might, but more than that she knows she’s got a good thing by being with him. She thinks she can get herself cut in on the action, but I think Jamie will fight that every step of the way. We’ll see where that goes.

The only other piece of the puzzle that isn’t as locked down as it should be is Shawn. His loyalties are seriously being tested. He’s being played by both his father and by Tasha. He’s not good at lying and I think someone’s going to catch him out. Hopefully carrying that gun won’t get him killed.

Questions

I know Jamie loves Angela, but he knows he can’t trust her. His spying is eventually going to be exposed and I wonder what that’ll do to their relationship. Now that Angie knows Jamie St. Patrick has no criminal record, is she going to double down on their relationship? Will she actually let him into more of her life so they can make a go of it?

What’s going to happen when Tasha finds out Jamie lied to her about Angie? Even though Tasha made it clear to Shawn that she’s in a good place with Jamie right now, how long will that last? Shawn knows so much and he’s obviously got a thing for Tasha. If/when she finds out about Jamie’s latest betrayal, will she resume things with Shawn?

How long before Kanan shows his hand? Obviously, Jamie is wise to be cautious about bringing Kanan back into the fold. Tommy never seems to think about anything, so he’d like to have Kanan back at full strength as soon as possible. It would definitely help them move some of that weight. But letting Kanan back in in any capacity is going to weaken their partnership and their business. I’m just wondering how long it’ll take Jamie to figure that out.

    Victor Garber again?? I love that he’s just saying yes to everything. He just wrapped a fantastic arc on S3 of Motive, which has no US distribution yet (dammit).
