We've got a reminder for you as we approach closer to Power Book IV: Force Season 1 Episode 2 this weekend: Tommy Egan is the type of man who doesn't waste time stirring trouble, and he's not going to waste his new opportunity in Chicago.

Power Book IV: Force is a sequel to the main series, focusing on James St. Patrick's former criminal partner Tommy Egan, played by Joseph Sikora, as he departs New York City for a new life in Chicago.

Power Book IV: Force Shows Two Sides of the Coin


We've already seen two opposing forces vying for control in the Windy City after just one episode. On the one side, there's the CBI group, which should benefit from Diamond's release from prison.

Meanwhile, you have Walter Flynn and his family on the other side. They're more of the north side's power players, who believe they've perfected a delicate business operation.

So, on which side is Tommy? The simple answer is "no one's side." He's on his own league, doing everything he can to guarantee that he makes it out of the wreckage alive. That is all he is concerned with.

While he begins to join the Chicago drug trade and gain allies, he will cause issues for both sides. What he could potentially accomplish here is set the setting for a conflict, and he'll have to rely on everything he's learned while working alongside Ghost over the years. That's the only way he'll come out on top of this.
