Master of What is Mine Own

Think about the children!  Everyone is fighting and a few things happened on Empire Season 5 Episode 8 to push the story forward, but the lasting images that will stick with most fans are the opening scene and the closing one.  I can't shake the image of Bella aiming the gun at her bickering family before pointing it at herself. Hopefully, the gun isn't loaded, or someone will take it from her before anything serious happens.  Hakeem is a certified idiot,... more

Treasons, Stratagems, and Spoils

If you gave up on Empire, then now would be the time to jump back in.  The show has had a rocky few years but Empire Season 5 is firing from all cylinders with the show's signature OMG twists, and Empire Season 5 Episode 7 didn't even save the biggest twists for the final scene.  Empire is at its best when the storylines naturally mesh together, and for now, the show is on a creative upswing with the characters trying to out-maneuver each other in the name of garnering some... more

Empire Season 5 Premiere: Ep Talks Decision to Kill Off [Spoiler], Sheds Light on Lost-Inspired Mystery

Empire‘s highly-promoted “Who’s in the coffin?” mystery turned out to be something of a bait and switch. None of the characters whose fate was left hanging in the balance in last May’s finale — most notably Hakeem and Tiana — were revealed to be in the pine box. (Both survived that season-ending shootout.) As we learned in the cold open of Wednesday’s Season 5 premiere, the foreboding scene in which Lucious is seen towering over a casket was actually a vision of the future — six months into... more

Will Shady Uncle Eddie Take Down the Lyons on 'Empire'?

When Cookie Lyons reached out to Eddie Barker to help with the day-to-day running of Empire Entertainment, she thought she had someone she could depend on. A music legend and old family friend, Barker was supposed to be the one person Cookie could trust while Lucious recovered from the car bombing. Initially, Uncle Eddie lived up to the hype. He gave the label stability and let the Lyons focus on helping Dwight/Lucious.  But on Empire, everyone has an ulterior motive and agenda. When Edd... more
