(Spoiler alert: Please do not read on if you haven’t watched Sunday’s episode of “Power”)
We’re going to preface this by saying that we don’t really like Angela Valdes (Lela Loren) very much — that’s actually a pretty nice way of expressing how we genuinely feel about her (Hint: she’s annoying af).
Now that we’ve gotten our biases out of the way, Sunday night’s episode of “Power” on STARZ won Angela some cool points because she finally did something right for once.
Last week’s episode showed the AUSA (Assistant United States Attorney) agent viewing security footage from Truth nightclub that, basically, showed that James “Ghost” St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick) didn’t go anywhere near where the murder weapon was found, indicating that the gun had to have been placed there by someone else — meaning, he was framed.
On tonight’s episode, Valdes decided to approach her colleague Mike Sandoval (David Fumero) and tell him about the tape, which he ended up dismissing, saying that they shouldn’t bring it up to the defense because it would weaken their case.
Now, old annoying Angela would’ve probably left it alone and went about her business because she annoyingly believed that Ghost was guilty of murdering Greg Knox (Andy Bean) because, as we said, she’s annoying.
But new Angela decided to put her own job and reputation on the line and approached St. Patrick’s defense attorney on her own and offered to testify about the exculpatory evidence she found.
So homegirl ended up taking the stand and revealing everything — from the security tapes she found to her sexual relationship with Ghost.
Because of how messy the prosecution and Angela was, the judge decided to dismiss the case against St. Patrick and he got to go free.
We could all tell Valdes was still salty about everything because even when Ghost tried to thank her for what she did — even though he shouldn’t have, because she’s the reason he was in this mess to begin with, but whatever — she was being annoying.
But it’s all good, because now Ghost is free and Angela is probably fired or something, but that’s OK because no one really cares about her anyway.
