After episode nine dropped some major bombshells –
- Mecca/Danté Spears (Daniel Sunjata) was revealed to be a notorious drug cartel informant.
- a secret only Tariq (Michael Rainey Jr) and Davis MacLean (Method Man are aware of – Monet Tejada (Mary J Blige) placed a target firmly on her husband Lorenzo Tejada’s (Berto Col)
- Meanwhile, Effie (Alix Lapri) appears to have dumped Tariq’s other woman Lauren (Paige Hurd) in order to have him all to herself.
- The season finale trailer raised several questions ahead of the finale, like whether Brayden betrayed Tariq on the stand, whether Lauren was killed, and who was the mystery person Dru Tejada was aiming the gun at.
Those queries have now been addressed. Look away now if you haven’t seen the Ghost season two conclusion.
Brayden, Did You Betray Tariq?
While we were all surprised to see Brayden Weston testify at Tariq’s murder trial in place of his brother Trace Weston (who was apparently sick,’ Brayden did not rat Tariq out on the stand, instead of taking the heat for selling drugs on campus and giving up their successful drug empire Course Correct in the process.
Tariq’s case was dismissed, and Professor Reynolds’ murder is now a cold case. Later in the episode, we learned that Tariq’s college girlfriend Lauren Baldwin had died in a vehicle accident, as described by locals.
Lauren’s death was discovered inside the car, along with a bag full of cash, which was most likely staged by Effie, who was brought Lauren by Brayden in the previous episode after Tariq had begged his college friend to keep Lauren safe and get her out of town.
Cane Tejada (Woody McClain), who sought confirmation of Lauren’s death (after all, he placed the hit out on Lauren), asked Brayden whether everything was all right, which the Weston student verified.
Effie, now that she has a solid grip on her man Tariq, appears to have the green light for their future relationship, but Tariq is astute and will soon discover that Brayden and Effie were the ones who set Lauren up.
Who Died in the Season Two Finale of Ghost?
Prepare to be taken on a wild ride. Monet charged Mecca with killing her husband Lorenzo in episode nine, and in the finale episode, Mecca decided that in order for Cane to prove his allegiance (after discovering Cane robbed his cache), he should be the one to give the death blow rather than Mecca.
But this is when things became complicated. Monet then ordered Tariq to pose as a decoy and assist Cane in killing his own father – after all, Tariq is an expert at it – while Monet killed Mecca. When Lorenzo learned of the clever strategy, he decided he should be the one to take the shot at Mecca.
With Dru holding a dummy bag and Diana armed with Mecca’s real bag, the two were also involved in the plan to trap his goons in a bloody gunfight. Dru was beaten and held at gunpoint by BSK gunmen working for Mecca after meeting his boyfriend Everette (Bradley Gibson) until Cane physically leaped in and saved Dru.
Following a brawl, Dru leveled the gun toward the last remaining BSK member when Cane stopped him and warned him, “not here,” before placing the assailant in the trunk. Fast forward to Mecca’s apartment, where we witnessed him make one more call, claiming that his “cover’s gone” and that they should arrive as quickly as possible.
Monet, the only person Mecca trusts, summoned Tariq to the penthouse after receiving the real bag from Diana. Mecca loaded his gun as Tariq made his way up the lift a gun in his hand, ready to shoot Tariq.
Monet then pointed his gun at Mecca and shot him in the head. Tariq and Monet turned off the cameras and exited the building. Lorenzo, who was also on a warpath, thought he saw Mecca exiting his Porsche and boarding his private jet. And, as we saw earlier in the episode, Zeke (Daniel Bellomy) was the one driving the Porsche when his father Mecca gave it to him.
Lorenzo opened fire on ‘Mecca,’ striking Zeke in the back. Monet received a tragic phone call from the NYPD alerting her of Zeke’s death as she returned home with Mecca’s ba, which had bank accounts probably stocked with wealth for Monet, Zeke, and Cane, Dru, and Diana.
