What Was Theo Rollins' Reincarnation?

Theo Rollins is the older brother of defense lawyer Davis MacLean (Method Man) in the 'Power' universe. Davis visits his clients in prison for the first time in season 2.

Cooper Saxe (Shane Johnson) handed over his brother's case to Cooper without telling him who he is or why he is in jail. He is, after all, tenacious and intelligent. By the time he meets his new client, he has established who he is and why he is in jail.

Cooper confronts Davis after Theo completely shuts down on him and persuades his client's younger brother to explain what really happened. Davis accepted the charges and accepted the plea deal, allowing him to go to Columbia Law and become the man he is today.

Davis demands that the doctor complete the necessary paperwork and assures him that his brother will be released in time for the treatment.

In season 3, the public learned that Theo was being played by a different actor, not Redman, and took to social media to express their displeasure. Neither the series producers nor the Starz executives have spoken publicly about Redman's sudden departure.
