“Power Book IV: Force” centers on fan-favorite character Tommy Egan, played by Joseph Sikora, after he cut ties and put New York in his rearview mirror for good. As Tommy leaves New York after losing Ghost, LaKeisha, and the only town he’s ever known, he takes a quick detour to heal an old wound that has haunted him for decades. What was supposed to be a quick stop turns into a maze of family secrets and lies that Tommy thought were long buried. One step leads to another and Tommy quickly finds himself in Chicago’s drug game, inserting himself between the city’s two biggest teams. In a city divided by race, Tommy straddles the line, eventually becoming the linchpin that not only unites them – but holds the POWER to watch them fall apart. As the first season unfolds at breakneck speed, Tommy uses his underdog status to his advantage, breaking all the local rules and rewriting them in his quest to become Chicago’s biggest drug dealer.
