Rough weekend for Alvin Kamara. The Saints running back was aresseted for battery in Las Vegas on Saturday night. While I won’t hop on the bandwagon opinion that Las Vegas was a bad idea for the NFL, because players like any other humans have to make decisions for themselves. This does however, mark the third player incident of the season in Sin City. While New Orleans is still in the midst of a coaching search and the team being a little over $70 million over the cap, one decision they’ll have to make with the new staff is figure out if they can get out of some of the guarenteed money on Kamara’s deal and move on from him altogether. He has a dead cap number of 20.5 million for the 2020 season and if they can prove conduct detrimental to the team, it could make rebuilding a little easier.

Also a tough weekend for Mecca and his son Zeke. No fancy cars for all the kids, no yacht, no NBA retirement plan. It wasn’t all doom and gloom as Tariq was able to reunite Tasha and Yasmine. Councilman Tate appears to have risen to new heights which will likely play out on his spin-off, Power Book V: Influence. We close the door on Lauren but it looks like it’s now wide open for Carrie. Brayden came through in the clutch in court, but it looks like it came at a cost of his Ivy League education. Lastly the cheese stands alone in Lorenzo Tejada. It would’ve been nice to see him and Mecca mix it up a little more next season, but if we know anything about the show runners, they’ll have plenty of story lines to unfold.

Power Book IV: Force didn’t exactly start off slow. With three feet of snow on the ground Tommy has the most spotless car in the city. Didn’t take him long to make a friends, enemies, earn a buck, and find a nice side piece. Looks like two rival crime families in the CBI and the Flynns are going to be going toe to toe with Tommy in the crosshairs. Great to see Lili Simmons again as I hadn’t seen her in anything since Banshee. She plays Claudia Flynn who is the daughter of the head of the Flynn family, Water Flynn, played by Tommy Flanagan. Oh and don’t look now, but Tommy has a half brother!!! All in all it looks like another solid entry to the Power Universe with a slew of interesting new characters, like Diamond to enjoy.

1883 turned out another 10. These rolling fields are honestly pretty breathtaking. I can only imagine the level of shit that would build in my pants seeing a tornado up close and personal like that having never seen one of TV… The storm leaves this traveling pack with a big mess to clean up and what appears to be a longer harder road ahead. Sam was a good character for the short time we got to see him. Hope he makes a return down the line. Thomas Neomi continue to be a great new couple. Great to see the cook didn’t bail on the group. We got a shootout with outlaws, tomahawk chops, and thanks to Taylor Sheridan’s surprise cameo appearance as Charles Goodnight, they were able to round up almost all if not most of their horse and cattle.
