By now I’m pretty sure everyone’s familiar with the show “Power” and the dynamics surrounding the main character’s (Ghost) contrasting relationship between his wife (Tasha) and his girlfriend (Angela). Just in case you’re not, here’s a brief description: Ghost is married to Tasha whom he has 3 children with and has maybe the biggest drug operation New York has ever seen. Tasha earned Ghosts trust (which lead to her becoming his wife and the mother of his children) during a routine stop by the police which could have landed him in jail for quite some time had she not had his back. When it comes to protecting Ghost, Tasha would do anything. She even lied to Angela to cover for him. However, she made one fatal mistake. Tasha had an affair with someone who worked for ghost and ended up being apart of a conspiracy to kill him. Does that one mistake cancel out all of her other acts of loyalty or is she still considered loyal?
On the other hand we have Angela. Ghost has known Angela since he was 15. Angela knew ghost before he became a drug lord; Her Jamie, always smart with a knack for business. She loves Jamie but hates ghost. Angela will do anything to protect Jamie from ghosts mistakes. she cleans up what he does to protect her fantasy of her and Jamie living together happily ever after like they planned to when they were both teenagers. Although she always seems to come through in a clutch, she leaves a suspense that’s makes the viewers a little weary and uncomfortable. Does her hesitancy make her less loyal or is she more loyal because she has Jamie’s best interest at hand and always pulls through no matter how hesitant she initially is under pressure?
So I guess the real question here is what type of people do you consider more loyal to you? The type of people who invest in what you are or the people that invest in who you are?
