While Power fans have no idea who shot Ghost (Omari Hardwick), at least one suspect was eliminated from the lineup, Dre (Rotimi). The long-time snitch, who has narrowly avoided death numerous times, finally got what he paid the ultimate price.
After Blanca (Monique Gabriela Curnen) noticed him depart Truth just after Ghost was killed, Dre's Season 6 mid-season premiere, titled "Still Dre," followed the events leading up to Ghost's death from Dre's point of view. Dre landed himself in jail (for the second time in the episode) for the murder of his former mentor-turned-enemy.
Despite this, fans now realize that while Dre intended on murdering him, he left the club when he heard gunshots.
So, how did Dre die in Season 6 of Power? 2-Bit (Michael J. Ferguson) and Spanky (Omar Scroggins) murdered him.
After Ghost promises to occupy their families while the guys are in lockup, Dre is murdered by two of Tommy's men, 2-Bit (Michael J. Ferguson) and Spanky (Omar Scroggins).
Despite the fact that he had the chance to leave New York City and not return, Dre made the wrong decision and followed Ghost, which led to him demise.
"He dies because of that choice he had the chance to go forward, but he goes back," Variety creator Courtney Kemp told TV Guide. "You reap what you sow."
Knowing that his days are numbered, he selects a fight while in prison to be sent to solitary. 2-Bit and Spanky, on the other hand, set Dre's cell on fire and watched as he burned to death.
Many fans of the Starz series were happy to finally witness Dre's demise. One fan tweeted, "Damn! I was not expecting Dre to go like that. But it was so enjoyable. #Power." Another added, "Dre's death was a lot for me. for sure needed to die, but that was tough."
Following Dre's death, audiences watched as Spanky snubbed on Tommy and was sent into the witness protection program. Now, only 2-Bit is left in prison... and he knows his former colleague is a rat.
Though Season 6 will premiere in the new year, fans should not have to say goodbye to the Power universe. There are four spin-off programs in development, according to executive producer Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson.

According to showrunner Courtney (via Deadline), "one of the spin-offs takes place in the future a little bit, one of them takes place in the past a little bit." "Some of the show's most controversial characters will be featured in the sequel, Power Book 2: Ghost (via The Hollywood Reporter)."
My Power spin-off is supposedly set a few decades before the present events happening in Power, in October, 50 Cent tweeted: "My Power spin-off is so crazy. I'm doing the prequel. Wait till you see this s--t, TGE influence (The Golden Era) Southside we outside 1988. Boom."
So, does this mean that fans may anticipate younger versions of Tommy and Ghost?
