This submit accommodates spoilers from Power Book III Season 1, Episode 8.
Power Book III‘s Jukebox is not interested in the blame game when it comes to the tragic death of her friend Nicole and she let Kanan know on last week’s episode of the Starz drama.
“It’s not your fault, Kanan,” Jukebox instructed her cousin after Nicole (Annabelle Zasowski) stole and smoked a crack rock from his lethal batch. “I don’t even think I can blame myself. It’s this place… and the pampered life we live in.”
Jukebox’s heartbreaking and prophetic phrases will proceed this Sunday at 8/7c, as Raq (Patina Miller) sends Kanan and Jukebox on two separate missions that may decide and seal their destiny. Mekai Curtis and Hailey Kilgore, who play Kanan and Jukebox respectively, say followers are about to get a extra intimate investigation into who their characters had been — and who they ultimately develop into.
“A big part of the show is looking at Kanan’s environment and influences and the choices he has to make,” Curtis diligently tells TVLine. “His mother and his uncles are in this crazy world and he is surrounded by danger, which makes him want to protect his mother even more. Kanan wants to protect his mother, and his mother wants to protect him, and it all costs money.”
After weeks of telling Kanan to remain within the reduce, Raq switches when Lou-Lou (Malcolm M. Mays) can’t assist. Instead of being suspicious or scared, Kanan follows the orders he’s been eagerly awaiting, Curtis predicts.
“He watches his mom and uncles do things and decides there’s only one way to protect and care for them,” the previous Disney actor stated. “First Raq pushed Kanan’s fate and now she embraces it. Kanan is young and naive and bullied his way into the family business. Everything he does is out of impulse and emotion and this time you will see him make a choice based on survival.”
As for Jukebox, she’s going to meet her Aunt Raq and her father Marvin (London Brown) and stroll away with very completely different outcomes that may make her love Raq extra and Marvin much less.
“It’s so exciting to be a part of this origin story,” says Kilgore. “We start at ground zero. It’s like taking a picture, taking the colors away and then painting it our own way.”
Kilgore says Jukebox’s cousin/brother bond with Kanan, in addition to the maternal affect Raq has on her character, felt natural from the beginning. For instance, Miller performed Kilgore’s mom in a Hollywood Bowl manufacturing of In the woods two years in the past. “I love Mekai and Patina”, the actress suspects. “We really click as a family.”
