Over the past couple of seasons, Kanan (50 Cent) and Tariq (Michael Rainey Jr.) have developed a close bond, despite Kanan consistently putting Tariq in harm's way.

But all of that came to a head last night when Tariq unexpectedly plotted against Kanan with his mom, Tasha (Naturi Naughton), to frame Kanan for the murder of a dirty cop, Raymond Jones (Marcus Callender).

It was a move that no one saw coming, not even Tariq's dad, Ghost (Omari Hardwick).

And after an violent shootout with police, Kanan was killed.

Since Kanan came close to death back in Season 2, but surprised viewers by returning to the show, fans had a tough time accepting this new reality for 50 Cent's character.

Kanan escaped death once, he can do it again. Getcho ass off that table 😭 #PowerTV

Kanan told Tariq he’d never do him like he did Shawn and he stayed true to that to the very end #Powertv #PowerStarz

~And~ people weren't too thrilled that Kanan was killed before Dre (Rotimi), who has been at odds with Ghost all season.

50 Cent wrote a tribute to his late character on Instagram, saying, "Hey you know how it is in the fast life. So many different dreams goals disappointments and betrayals."

"KANAN thought Tariq was like him, and he was but he still his father’s son so he did some sucker shit."

Looks like Tasha finally had her revenge!
