Raq and Kanan’s relationship is broken in Power Book III: Raising Kanan
The two were very close to the point where Raq ordered Kanan to shoot Detective Howard. However, when he shoots the cop and learns that his mother was behind D-Wiz’s death, and now that Howard Kanan has revealed that he is his biological father, Kanan has started to smack his mother for the first time in his life consult.
“I think the foundation of Kanan and Raq’s relationship is broken at this point,” Curtis told PopSugar. “There was definitely a trust and a line that was crossed on both sides. It’s just very interesting to see how they deal with the constant back and forth of “Blood is thicker than water, but I still can’t forget it”. I can’t wait to see it all come together because it’s really getting to the boiling point – just the nervousness and the intensity that’s there.”
Raq has attempted to attempt a repair with her son. However, since she still lies to him, things don’t go well between the two.
According to Patina Miller, Raq wants to be a good mother
While Raq’s main motivation seems to be to grow her business into a massive empire, Miller insists her character still wants to be a good mother.
“Raq really wants so much, but she also wants to be a good mom,” Miller told The Hollywood Reporter. “She wants to be the matriarch of this family, and the family all wants different things. That’s it. Try to investigate your family. We don’t always agree with family, but at the end of the day, no matter what, your family is your family.”
Unfortunately, Raq’s choices seem to be driving her family apart.
Raq will never let Kanan go anywhere near Detective Howard in Power Book III: Raising Kanan
Despite knowing the truth, Raq seems determined that Kanan should never get close to his birth father. Now that she knows Kanan has been looking to Detective Howard for answers, we wouldn’t be shocked if she didn’t do something drastic.
“Raq will fight any means necessary to make sure her son is aligned with her,” Miller told PopSugar. “If she has to get him to be a soldier in the business and do all the things that she does, you’ll see her go through these different methods to get her son back.”
