Power's final season hit fans with another shock twist in its latest episode as LaKeisha Grant (La La Anthony) was murdered by her best friend Tasha St. Patrick (Naturi Naughton).
After making a series of terrible choices over the series as she got herself increasingly wrapped up in Tommy's drug business, Power fans were more than ready for LaKeisha's death – but the fact that Tasha pulled the trigger to protect herself and her family while Keisha was about to skip town was a twist few would have seen coming.
"I wanted to make sure I went out with a bang, and make it something people talk about," actress La La Anthony told TV Guide of her final scene.

"Keisha's intention had been to pick up Cash from practice and keep trucking, or at least be gone for a while. She just wanted to be completely gone from the situation, but [Tasha's] mentality was that it was either [Keisha] or me," she continued.

"It is sad. People say to me, 'I wish they were still friends', but I see [falling outs] happen all the time with friends, whether it's money or guys, people who have been friends for a long time don't even speak to each other any more."
The actress also admitted that she could sense her character's demise approaching, saying it came from LaKeisha "wanting to be this ride-or-die girl for Tommy and not understanding what that meant".

"I felt like something was going to happen to her when I first saw the script, but I didn't know exactly," she added.
"She was doing too much. Like, you have a son to raise, a successful weave shop. There was no reason to be dealing with the stuff you were dealing with."
Power airs on Sundays at 9pm on Starz in the US and on Netflix in the UK.
