50 Cent is one of those actors who has translated his music career into a profitable career as a TV producer. Many rappers go the route of actor instead. Method Man carved a very nice recurring role in The Wire when it was on. Common had an even more successful run in Hell On Wheels. 50 Cent even had his own turn as an actor on a movie based on his own life.
He really came into his own in the creation of Power, a show he helped create and would eventually star in. He has had his hand in a few other shows but his most prominent after the Power franchise was For Life. The show was about the true story of a man who was wrongfully imprisoned and how he fought to get out. In Acursian Chapter 4, Charlie has been wrongly imprisoned and we find out why everything was set in motion so that would be.
We find Charlie in processing into county lockup and on the phone trying t convince Allison that he did not do what he has been accused of. We are also taken to the Isle Of Shadows, where a young prince sits imprisoned and he just has been informed that Jock has found the dagger. Nate eventually bails out Charlie but not before being visited by someone looking for Jock. By the chapter’s end, we start to see just how the prince became imprisoned.
Overall, an excellent episode that adds another protagonist. The story by the creative team is fun. The art by the creative team is incandescent. Altogether, a chapter which adds another storyline, one that upends the stakes.
