The stress between Crown Camacho (Quincy) and Lou-Lou (Malcolm Mays) has been brewing for fairly a while now, however issues lastly got here to a head throughout Sunday night time’s explosive episode of “Power Book III: Raising Kanan.” In the ultimate moments of episode six, titled “It’s a Business, Man,” Lou-Lou reveals as much as the studio to confront Crown for not solely hooking up along with his girlfriend, Jessica (Natalee Linez), however for secretly working with Raq (Patina Miller) to attempt to push him out of the music enterprise.
“You know, it was one factor after I heard that you simply had been smashing Jess behind my again, however I ain’t wish to get b*tches get in the best way of enterprise,” Lou tells Crown, to which he responds: “The f*ck you realize about enterprise, Lou? You in over your head so deep you do not even know which method is up, n***a. You and I do know you’ll be able to’t do that sh*t — not with out me. Everybody know.” Crown then tells Lou that each one he is ever going to be is “Raq’s child’s brother” — resulting in the episode’s most-shocking second: Lou snaps and kills Crown by strangling him with a wire conveniently mendacity on prime of some studio gear.
“The stunning half about Lou and Crown is that you simply actually noticed a steadiness,” Quincy, 31, tells POPSUGAR. “For folks not even within the music business, they know this relationship dynamic. They’ve seen it, and I’m positive everyone sort of goes via it, the place any person could are available and supply opinions, and generally you’re feeling such as you’re changing into much less of you as a result of there’s so [many] opinions on the opposite facet [that] you’re feeling like you need to do one thing to ensure your respect continues to be there. And I feel that was the continued s tory with Crown and Lou-Lou. I pushed the incorrect button, and I understood it.”
When Quincy first joined the Power universe in 2021, he had no concept what was in retailer for his character. In reality, he solely discovered of Crown’s destiny at a desk learn for the episode. “[I was] tremendous stunned,” he admits. “You present as much as the desk learn, they ship you a script, and so they let you realize proper there.” As a end result, Quincy did not have a lot time to organize for his onscreen demise. He provides, “In life, you do not put together to die, so precisely how that’s, it shocked me, it took a chunk of me out . . . I did not wanna exit like that, however I feel it is an actual stunning scene . . . I’m by no means gonna neglect it.”
So is that this the final we have seen of Crown? Not fairly. According to Quincy, we could get extra display time for the character in flashback scenes. He reveals, “Crown was such a staple within the happenings of what is going on on, particularly with the music and the streets, and he offered this steadiness. There are some issues that I’m positive we did not get to see that can make sense later — some flashbacks that can reply some questions later on. Yeah, I’m placing it on the market: flashbacks.”
Quincy’s introduction to the Power franchise was within the first season of “Raising Kanan,” which takes place within the ’90s in New York City’s South Jamaica, Queens. As a ’90s child himself, attending to work on this present was a nostalgic expertise for him. “It was a real dive into my life in a time the place I used to be a child,” he says. “I obtained to reside as an grownup within the time the place I used to be simply getting into the world. So to really have the ability to reside via it — rock the garments and to play with the little toys on set which are all from the ’90s, stuff that I keep in mind — it felt good to insert myself in a time of historical past that was so vital. To be part of the Power universe is a blessing, and like I stated, if it ain’t Crown coming again in flashbacks, it will be one thing. The Power universe has positively received my love over.”
