Power Book II: Ghost

Season 1

Tasha is represented by Tameika Washington, who lands her a plea deal of four years probation for criminally negligent homicide (brought about by threatening to smear the Democratic Party with accusations against James St. Patrick). However, the deal requires allocution, so Tameika insists that Tasha tell the truth. Tameika nearly realizes that Tariq was the murderer, so Tasha fires Tameika on the spot, forfeiting the deal. She calls Tariq and insists that he focus on school rather than trying to hustle funds for a new lawyer for her.

Later, Tasha's bumbling public defender suggests that Tasha take a 15 year plea deal in exchange for the name of the shooter; she takes the deal, but once again lies, saying that Andre Coleman was the shooter. Afterward, Davis Maclean becomes her attorney and gets her a plea deal for three years probation, provided that she allocates. She wants to refuse again, but Maclean delivers Tariq's message that if Tasha loves Tariq, she'll tell the truth. She seems to agree, but in court claims that Tommy Egan killed James St. Patrick — another lie. Further, she says that she ordered Tommy to kill James, which results in her being charged under the federal Continuing Criminal Enterprise Kingpin Statute. The sentence, if convicted, is death.

While Tasha is fighting for her freedom, she learns that Davis Maclean has been playing her and Tariq through Paula which had broken up with Maclean. On the other hand, Maclean was being threatened by Saxe during their deal to ruin his reputation. When Saxe summons Tariq to testify, Tariq meets Tameika again to be his attorney. Tameika asks if Tariq was the one responsible for killing Ghost to which the former admits he did kill his own father with his plan originally admitting that he would admit that he killed his father, not Tasha or Tommy. However, there was a change of plans with Tariq calling out Saxe for following him the night he was drugged by his niece Riley while he didn't reference the latter being responsible as the judge questions Saxe which the former denies and calling out Maclean as well. This results in both Saxe and Davis being forced to resign while Tommy was still the main suspect in the murder of Ghost. As a result, Tasha is freed but now realizes that Tommy is after her for not only framing him as the murderer of Ghost but the death also of Lakeisha after attempting to negotiate with Monet about Tariq's debt to her when he attacked their place. Due to this, Tasha decided she and Tariq should leave to somewhere else while leaving Yas with her grandmother as Tommy was after her but Tariq instead decided to have Tasha in witness protection while he was on his own.

Tasha asks if something has happened, she then sees Yasmine running towards her and the two hug. Tameika explains that Yasmine is now permitted to stay with Tasha under a fake name but Tariq, as far as they are concerned, does not exist. Yasmine later gives Tasha a letter from Tariq in which he says he is hoping to see her again soon, but that he cannot right now.
