#PowerTV Surges With Main Character’s Death On ‘Power’ [Spoiler Alerts]
Warning: This article contains spoiler alerts about the TV show Power, and the death of a main character.
Fans of the TV show Power are reacting on Twitter to Saturday night’s episode, so much so that the hashtag #PowerTV has become a trending topic. Those same fans should not scroll down the #PowerTV label on Twitter if the most recent version of Power is still sitting on their DVRs and they don’t like spoilers.
That’s because Twitter users have unveiled and reacted to the death of a main character on Power, apparently one least expected to be killed by his own father on the show.
Tweets like those featured in this article prove that Sinqua Walls‘ character Shawn met with his death on Power, and viewers were most surprised at who killed him. That killer was 50 Cent’s character, who stars on Power as Shawn’s father — a man who was recently released from prison. Every detail about Shawn’s untimely death is being reported by Power fans.

Most of all, Power viewers are experiencing shock over Shawn’s death. He’s a young character who’d gotten involved with the main character’s wife — only after “Ghost” himself had spent plenty of time romancing another woman.

It didn’t take Twitter users long to come up with funeral programs and other memorializing photos bidding goodbye to Shawn from Power — and they used a plethora of GIFs and other photos to express their shock over his death.
His name was Kanan but we just witnessed old School G Unit 50 Cent kill his son.

Folks are likening 50 Cent’s hardened Power TV character to his real life persona from his rap songs and rhymes, which speak of the type of hardened upbringing that caused 50 Cent to get shot in real life when he was younger.

In spite of 50 Cent’s recent bankruptcy troubles, during which he claimed he didn’t remember having lots of money — as reported by the Inquisitr — Power TV fans are giving him kudos for his acting of a cold-hearted character.
Meanwhile, the death of the young Shawn character has Power watchers pontificating that Shawn just wasn’t “about that life” — not hardened enough to live the criminal lifestyle to which he aspired.

According to the response on social media, it was a moving episode of Power that left fans reeling over what would happen next. Alongside Empire on Fox, Power on Starz is one of those new dramas that has become must-see TV for devoted fans of both shows.
