50 cent let all of Instagram know that 'Power' is Starz's highest rated show and receives the poorest treatment. Starz only approved the series for 10 episodes this season, which left limited opportunity for the story lines to fully unravel. As a result, 50 has threaten to take his series elsewhere.

Sunday’s episode, which saw the deaths of two major characters played by Anika Noni Rose and J.R. Ramirez, was originally planned to be a two-parter to include some additional storylines. However, according to showrunner Courtney Kemp, Starz didn’t agree to extend the episode order, resulting in just one packed episode. Kemp said that as a result, the episode lost some story elements.
“Unfortunately, Starz would not give us the extra episode,” Kemp told Entertainment Weekly. “I asked them for 12 episodes for season 4 and they would not do it. So because they would not do it, we had to make it one episode.”
