Following on from the brilliant Power and Power Book II: Ghost series, the third instalment in the franchise, Raising Kanan, has maintained an impressively high standard and continues to be one of the best shows currently on TV.

Each episode has been full of twists and turns and that was certainly the case in episode 8 as Lou-Lou was left fighting for his life as he was caught in the crossfire in Unique’s gang war.

The cliffhanger ending has left worried fans asking if Lou-Lou died in episode 8 or if he will live to fight another day in Raising Kanan.

Raising Kanan episode 8 recap

Episode 8 of Power Book III: Raising Kanan aired on Starz on September 12th.

Titled The Cost of Business, the episode began by following a distraught Jukebox whose girlfriend, Nicole, had died as a result of the bad batch of crack cooked up by Kanan.

Detective Howard, who recently learned that Kanan is his biological son, gave Raq an ultimatum; let him meet his son or Kanan could face a long stretch in jail for multiple murders.

Raq was left trying to juggle too many problems and planned to cut loose anyone she didn’t need including her own brother, Marvin, and Lou-Lou was the one tasked with killing him.

However, Lou-Lou was left conflicted about the assignment and couldn’t go through with the hit straight away but as he sat chilling at home, some of Unique’s gang attacked his house, setting it ablaze with petrol bombs.

Ironically, Lou-Lou was pulled from the fire by Marvin, the very person who he was tasked with killing.


Does Lou Lou die in Raising Kanan?

No, Lou-Lou did not die in Raising Kanan episode 8.

As mentioned, Malcolm M. Mays’ character was pulled from the fire by Marvin and thanks to the synopsis for episode 9, we know that he survived the attack, at least for now.

When discussing Lou-Lou’s fate, the synopsis for episode 9 reads: “As Lou recovers in the hospital, Marvin seeks revenge.”

Obviously, while Lou-Lou did not die in episode 8, he isn’t out of the woods yet and so fans will no doubt be hoping that there are no complications while he is recovering in hospital in episode 9.


Don’t miss episode 9

Episode 9 of Raising Kanan arrives on Starz next Sunday, September 19th, and will air at 8pm ET/PT.

As mentioned, the episode – which is titled Loyal to the End – is set to explore the fallout from the attack that left Lou-Lou in hospital.

Marvin is out for revenge, although little does he know that he saved the life of the man charged with killing him.

Meanwhile, Raq is feeling the pressure following the events of the past few episodes and so she turns to Kanan to take out the biggest threat facing their family.


Power Book III: Raising Kanan continues with episode 9 on Starz at 8pm ET/PT on Sunday, September 19th.
