Power's Tasha and Angela Will Form an Unlikely Alliance in Season 5

They're going from enemies to partners in crime

Keisha Hatchett

Ghost (Omari Hardwick), Tommy (Joseph Sikora) and Kanan (50 Cent) aren't the only unlikely alliance headed to Powerin Season 5. When the gritty drama from Courtney Kemp returns this Sunday, Tasha (Naturi Naughton) and Angela (Lela Loren) will also be forced to work together and that won't be easy considering their complicated past. After all, Angela's affair with Ghost didn't exactly foster a warm relationship between both women. However, dire circumstances will bring them together in a way that we haven't seen before.

"Tasha would love to never see Angela again but their fates are inextricably tied together. It's this interesting circumstance where people who don't entirely trust each other, who don't necessarily like each other, have to work together because the predicament they're in is bigger than all of their petty dynamics," Lela Loren told TV Guide.

Added Naturi Naughton: "This is the year where she has to put aside her issues about Ghost and just be the bigger person and go to Angela for help. But it's really about power. She needs to have some sort of power when it comes to keeping Tariq out of jail and Angela's the best resource to use."

With their energy focused on Tariq, there won't be time for the former enemies to rehash the past. Instead, the unlikely team-up will be an opportunity for both women to see each other in a new light now that they're no longer fighting about Angela's lengthy affair with Ghost.

"What's going on with the love triangle doesn't matter. Raina's death levels everybody. It's the crack in the foundation. I think Tasha starts to see Angela in a different way because she needs her and Angela starts to see Tasha in another way because that conflict isn't really front and center. A new sort of respect can grow," added Loren.

See how it all goes down when Power returns for Season 5 Sunday, July 1 at 9/8c on Starz,
