In an interview with Vibe Magazine, Hardwick and Sikora spoke on how prepared Ghost and Tommy are to take down each other.
Read excerpts below:
Is Tommy really prepared to kill Ghost?
Tommy is definitively preparing himself to kill Ghost, and then, hopefully, Tommy makes it out of Season Three. That is certainly not a guarantee. I’m here today, but I’m not in this scene. I will say that this is a very exciting dynamic season with surprising depths.
Is Ghost/James/Jamie prepared to kill Tommy?
I don’t think he could ever do that. I think that’s what people root for. There’s always a twinkle of, like, ‘He can’t kill Tommy’—as our executive producer walks by right now Curtis [Jackson] is playing a character, in Kanan, that can do that.
Kanan is a guy that separates himself from a lot of characters we see on dramas, on thrillers, on crime dramas because he is ruthless and could care less. He shot his son. Ghost could not only not shoot his son; he could not shoot his Caucasian brother Tommy Egan. He cannot. He might act like he can, but I don’t think he could ever come to that place.
