We saw that in this episode, titled "No One Can Stop," Ghost was shot. When Power season 6 arrives in early 2020, there are a lot of questions that needed to be answered--particularly whether or not Ghost is dead. In episode 10, it was clear that the character was shot and his body fell on the ground and Blanca likely heard the gunshot. CarterMatt noted that Dre, Paz, Tommy, Saxe, Tate, Tariq, and Tasha are the candidates that want Ghost dead as all of them have motives for killing him. Yet, it is also possible that there are other characters out there that want to secretly kill him. Others speculate that Ghost isn't really dead and he just wanted to pretend he's gone to frame someone. However, when it comes to that big reveal, series creator Courtney A.

But, if ever Ghost dies, there are still a lot of ways on how to feature him on Power season 6. Some characters appeared in the midseason finale, like Angela, Raina, and Kanan. Hence, Ghost might be also making his appearance even if he's dead--possibly as a negative conscience to others. The new episode of Power season 6 is expected to arrive on Sunday, Jan. 5 on Starz. Also, UK-based viewers can watch the new episode on Monday, Jan. 6, on Netflix. *Fans of "Power" were left stunned by the final moments of the midseason finale Sunday, when Ghost was shot and fell from the balcony at his nightclub. and show boss Courtney Kemp chopped it up with TV Line about what to expect when the season resumes on Jan. 5.

It wasn't just that he didn't do the crime, it was that he was actually framed; there's a little bit of this bulletproof thing that he feels like he has. There's that, and there's the arrogance of having killed pretty much everybody who knows what he did. He did murder a lot of people who were hip to what he was doing and specifically, by the time we get to Episode 10 — and Angela says it in the episode: "You're free now." LaKeisha's gone, Tommy's out of [his] life. So he feels like pretty much everybody in his life, he's got on lock… Even Tasha, when she says, "Dude, you are a murdering drug dealer!" and he's like, "Uh, no, you are."
