‘Power Book II: Ghost’s Alix Lapri delves into Lauren’s fate debate: ‘Effie is not missing’ (Exclusive)


THE Power the universe is never afraid to kill off a major character – or two. However, in the television world, if you haven’t seen the body, the character could still be alive. This is the case of Lauren Baldwin, who was apparently killed in season 2.

So what is Power star Alix Lapri have to say about the speech? “I will say this: Effie is not missing,” said Alix HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY during the Power Book II: Ghost press of season 3.

Brayden was ordered to kill Lauren after she secretly taped him and Cane to try to expose the drug ring at Stansfield University. Effie showed up and seemed to deal with Lauren’s death on her own. However, we never saw Lauren’s body. Tariq only learned that she was found dead after a car accident.

Obviously, it’s a huge secret that Brayden and Effie are keeping from Tariq, who is deeply upset over Lauren’s death. “I think she tries to forget about him, but every time she tries it just comes back to her face. I think it hurts her because she really falls in love with this man,” Alix admitted on the way Effie handles the secret.

In the world of Power, betrayal is almost a guarantee. Tariq has been burned before, but this revelation would turn his world upside down. Michael Rainey Jr. revealed whether or not Tariq would be able to forgive Brayden or Effie for what happened to Lauren.

“For me, as Michael, no one would forgive me,” the actor said. “You could have at least told me what was going on. I understand the tactic. You could have told me…”

Alix added: “I think the deception is the hurtful part.” Michael followed up with, “I think that’s what’s really going to get to him, trying to fool me and acting like nothing’s really going on all the time.”

But that’s not the only problem Tariq has on his hands in Power Book II: Ghost season 3. Monet killed Mecca in the season 2 finale, and Detective Rodriguez spotted Tariq entering the building the same night. Rodriguez got it for Tariq, and she won’t go away quietly.

“I would definitely say as soon as Tariq thinks he’s gotten out of something, he steps right into something else. It’s something he definitely needs to think about in the back of his head,” Michael said. Power Book II: Ghost Season 3 premieres March 17 on STARZ.
