There is a strong possibility that the ‘gang banger’ that 2-Bit kills is the sleazy professor Jabari
Intriguingly titled ‘Monster’, the upcoming Episode 9 of the show could reveal Tariq’s (Michael Rainey Jr.) monstrous side, thanks to all the pressure he is under. In the trailer for the episode, Effie (Alix Lapri) — the girl who understands him best — even asks him to embrace his inner monster. As Cane (Woody McClain) takes the fight to the streets, chopping up bodies like the OG ‘Power’ character Kanan, Tariq might not have a choice but be brutal. The synopsis says that Tariq is concerned with who he is and who he’s becoming — but he will not have the luxury of nursing those concerns. With Tasha’s (Naturi Naughton) trial taking a turn, the stress is only going to increase.
