Warning: This post contains vandals from Sunday Book of Power II: Ghost.
When Diana sat down to dinner with her family this week Book of Power II: Ghost, she serves up a steaming bowl of truth – and everyone gets a quality serving, whether they like it or not.
The Tejadas hadn’t finished their meal when Diana was caught lying, saying she had joined Zeke’s game earlier even though she certainly hadn’t. Knowing she was about to get in trouble, Diana decided to publicize everyone’s lies – accidentally kicking the series star. LaToya Tonodeo jokingly called “nuclear dinner.”
Diana appreciates Cane for dealing with cocaine messing up their supply, “just so he can be the new hookup.” An on-site Cane then tells Lorenzo that Dru didn’t kill Everett as he thought he would – shocking Zeke, who was unaware that it was a plan in the first place. Diana then puts the focus back on her mother, saying that she’s been preparing for getting out of the game and from you, Papi, for weeks. Monet angrily counters that she knew Diana attended Tariq’s trial and that she slept with him.
But by that point, Diana was on fire. “You’re not the only one you shouldn’t be, Ma!” Diana screams, telling everyone that Monet has been having an affair with Dante. “I’m sorry, let me clarify quickly,” said Diana. “I mean Zeke’s dad.” And afterwardDiana pulled out a copy of Zeke’s birth certificate, which showed he was born in 1998, not 2002 as he had thought – news that could seriously upend his future with the draft. NBA.
Of course, we’d love to hear the inside story of that disastrous dinner straight from the mastermind himself. Read on for Tonodeo’s thoughts on Diana’s long, smoldering, highly entertaining rebellion.
TVLINE | What kills me is that Monet doesn’t even think about Diana. She doesn’t think of herself as a threat in any way, does she?
Correct. She’s underestimating her right now because, first of all, Monet’s had a lot going on with Mecca – aka Dante – Zeke, Lorenzo, our dad is coming home. She’s being pulled in so many different directions, which makes Diana a little more comfortable since she’s constantly moving and doing things like losing her virginity. [Laughs] So yeah, it’s like she doesn’t suffer from Monet’s thumb as heavily as before.
TVLINE | I can’t stop thinking about the fact that Diana is still a child.
TVLINE | And all Monet’s kids have to grow up really fast –
TVLINE | So what percentage of what Diana is doing – including the boom of this episode – is part and parcel of growing up? Granted, it’s on a larger scale, more attention-grabbing because of the show and its circumstances, but you’d think her level of rebelliousness is just teenage rebellion, for lack of a better word. ?
YES. That is a good question. Well, definitely the sexual stuff. It’s rebellious because, even in Season 1, Episode 5, Monet is definitely trying to build Diana’s confidence and not worry about the boys, especially Tariq. I believe she will bring that up again in Episode 1 or 2 of this season. She kept trying to tell Diana to focus on what’s important. “Leave Tariq alone, that’s not it. You need to find a partner. It’s not about love or lust” or whatever that might happen, but Diana was still a young girl so she said, “Okay mom, yeah, yeah, yeah. YES.” And then she still did exactly what she wanted to do, and she found herself sleeping with Tariq and losing her virginity – and to whom her mother said “He can’t love you like you want to.” he loves you.” And she’s still rebellious.
TVLINE | Let’s talk about dinner in Episode 8.
She let it all out for dinner. She cooks. She said, “I’m going to cook this dinner, and my parents will be there, my brother, and she’s trying to hold back because she gave Monet a chance to talk.” [But Monet] brushed her off, so Diana said like ‘OK, good. I gave her a chance. We start! ” [Laughs] It was described as a nuclear dinner… I don’t know how it was edited or what we kept, but everyone went. Turn off. Mary [J. Blige] throw things. I was like, oh, my God. There was a moment, I don’t know if they were going to keep this, but she jumped out of her chair, and she hasn’t done that before. And when she did, at that moment I jumped, because she was coming for me! … It’s great. I really hope they keep that up. [Editor’s note: They did.] I don’t know if they want to, but yeah, it’s nuclear dinner and we’re dropping bombs. Diana is talking to everyone. Everyone. Even Monet.
TVLINE | Do you think Season 1’s Diana can do it? Do you think there was something that changed about her last season or something that made her able to do this?
Oh my God. I certainly don’t believe Diana will be able to do this in Season 1. She’s still trying to find her place a lot in Season 1. I think maybe that’s changed at the start of this season. . , Cane gets ostracized by her family, Dru gets hurt, and she finds herself having to really step up and… realize, OK, I really can’t go to school right now. Let me put all my ambition, all my intelligence into the family business, which is the drug game. So maybe that kind of thing sparked something in her and gave her this little sense of confidence that changed her a little bit, because now she’s chasing it and she’s not really. care what people say about it. [Laughs]
