Power Book III: Raising Kanan’s second season has come to its explosive conclusion following episode 10, titled If Y’Don’t Know, Now Y’Know. Starz fans were left glued to their screens to see how the fate of the likes of Kanan (played by Mekai Curtis) and Raq (Patina Miller) would tee up a third season of the hit Power spin-off, although there were plenty of characters who sadly won’t get the chance to see another series.

WARNING: This article contains spoilers from Power Book III: Raising Kanan season 2 finale.

In the Power universe, big-named casualties and exits are common occurrences throughout the entire franchise.

From James ‘Ghost’ St Patrick (Omari Hardwick) in the flagship drama to Jabari Reynolds (Justin Marcel McManus) in Book II: Ghost, Power bosses have no problems killing off pivotal characters.

Heading into Raising Kanan’s second season finale though, there was one person a number of fans were convinced would finally meet their maker – Shannon Burke (Shanley Caswell).

After all, Burke has failed to keep a secret all the dirt she’s managed to find on her crime-fighting partner Malcolm Howard (Omar Epps).

Howard is Kanan’s biological father and is fully aware of his and Raq’s criminal enterprise, plus he’s desperate not to go down with them if Burke were to expose them.

However, for now, at least, Burke’s future remains safe after she made it out of season two, episode 10 alive.

But the same can’t be said for Worrell (John Clay III) and Zisa (Paulina Singer).

The duo found themselves on the wrong end of an explosive shoot-out following a fallout with Italian Mafia boss Sal Boselli (Michael Rispoli). 

And after witnessing the pair’s demise, a number of Raising Kanan fans took to social media to share their reactions.

Twitter user @1OffciialJxm fumed: “As much as Worrell used to annoyed me, I didn’t want him to die. He was so loyal to Unique, damn man. #RaisingKanan.”

While @PaperR_Bidnesss weighed in: “Damn Worrell I mean I ain’t like you no way but DAMN #raisingkanan.”

Elsewhere, @JustingVsJFair92 was rather pleased: “It’s about time Worrell got got too.

“He had that s**t coming for a long time #RaisingKanan,” followed by a thumbs-up emoji.

And @MMira08 also seemed in agreement: “If it had to be anybody I’m cool with it being Zisa and Worrell #raisingkanan.”

But sticking up for Ziza, @TajaKitty hit out: “Zisa deserved better #RaisingKanan.”

While @Ybth92 argued someone else should’ve been killed off: “Damn worrel zisa AND kenya? smh instead of burke who actually needs to go? wow #RaisingKanan.” (sic)

How exactly Zisa and Worrell’s death will affect proceedings in season three remains to be seen.

And while their exits were a huge talking point, there was also the introduction of an all-new face to the drama.

Stefano (played by Tony Danza) reared his head for the first time as the new big powerhouse behind New York’s crime scene.

Power Book III: Raising Kanan seasons 1-2 are available to stream on Starz in the USA and Lionsgate+ in the UK.
