My Fate Cries Out

Oh damn.  On Empire Season 5 Episode 17, Andre geared up to take his own life, but not before he tried to save the company one last time.  At the same time, the FBI continued its pursuit of the Lyons, and everyone associated with Empire was fair game.  When it got down to it, Lucious was prepared to be with his son throughout his final night, but he felt so helpless in the process.  Andre's back was against the wall. His heart was about to give ... more

Never Doubt I Love

The odds are stacked against Andre Lyon. Empire Season 5 Episode 16 revealed that Cookie's eldest son's prognosis went from being good to bleak, and it was a real gut punch. Doctor Swain had nothing but good news for Andre over the last handful of episodes. It seemed like he was in the clear. It's a devastating blow to learn that his heart muscle has gotten destroyed as a result of the cancer treatment. Being in remission is only half the battle in these instan... more

A Wise Father That Knows His Own Child

That was a dull episode for the most part.  Empire Season 5 Episode 15 brought Kingsley back into the fold. On paper, it should have been an intriguing aspect to have Lucious extend the olive branch to his son. The execution of it was rather ludicrous. It was clear from the get-go that Tracy was calling the shots and lying about her condition to reel Kingsley in. When Lucious visited her, she was sitting reading magazines on the sofa. But when her ... more

Empire to End With Season 6

Fox buried the lede when it renewed Empire last month: The series’ upcoming sixth season will also be its last, the network announced on Monday (and it’s moving to a new night). During a conference conference call with reporters, Fox CEO Charlie Collier elaborated on the decision to end the Taraji P. Henson-Terrence Howard soap with Season 6, side-stepping questions about what role — if any —  the real-life drama surrounding embattled cast member Jussie Smollett played in... 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
