“Power” cast members flex at the Season 4 Premiere in Washington, D.C., on June 8, 2017.

If you’re a fan of Starz’s hit drama “Power,” you’re asking yourself these questions right now: Why is Tariq the dumbest kid of all time? WTF happened to Keisha? What is Kanan’s calculated plot? And when is Ghost getting out?

That’s what crowds of fans, congressional leaders and Washington insiders (yes, Omarosa) were eager to find out at the “Power” Season 4 premiere party in Washington, D.C.

Most red carpets are not a place for politics but it easily became the topic of conversation at the Newseum’s intimate cocktail reception.

Starz CEO Chris Albrecht pumped up “Power” with a candid discussion on the importance of diversity in television. And to my surprise, it was revealed that “Power” is the Congressional Black Caucus’ favorite show as black lawmakers ask themselves the same question I do everyday: What would Ghost do?

To kick off the highly-anticipated season, the show’s entire cast (Omari Hardwick, 50 Cent, Joseph Sikora, Lela Loren, Naturi Naughton, Lala Anthony  and more) lit up the red carpet.

Of course the “Power” squad dished about what to expect this season since we’ve been waiting on eggshells for the past year.

The show’s creator and executive producer Courtney Kemp said she can’t wait to see the roller coaster of emotions fans will have this season.

Omari Hardwick, who plays Ghost, a street/corporate drug kingpin, summed up his character’s struggles after being charged with the murder of FBI Agent Greg Knox.

Me with Joseph Sikora, who plays Tommy.

“He’s really, really going through it. Trying to figure out how to survive from day to day. So it’s kind of an interesting place we find him this year.”

Naturi Naughton, who plays ride-or-die Tasha described her character’s evolution as “fierce and independent.” This season we see Tasha come into her own as she holds down her family and deals with the havok of Ghost going to jail.

As for Angela aka Ghost’s scorned ex and reason he’s in jail to begin with, Lela Loren gave us a cryptic hint — mumbling the words “armored car.” Hmm.

If you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t seen the last three seasons of the best crime drama on television  — binge watch it now and thank me later. For the rest of us, we feel some type of way that Ghost is behind bars and being mocked “cop killer” for a crime he didn’t commit.

Free Ghost.

Season 4 of “Power” premieres Sunday, June 25 at 9 p.m. ET on Starz.
