Nessa?! 🎤 #songbird. All of this season and past…,nothing. And then Shine “dies” #murdered and she’s back? *sigh. #budget matters ? Never the less…I’m Grateful
The story begins with, “Hey mama” Mama Cookie’s reply: Do you need a kidney?!😁 They hug. Cook sees pictures, wonders how she has these and she wasn’t there, was she? She had a long lens. Telescopic #camera Sweet. Cookie wants/needs something stronger than tea. #whiskey
Across town, Thirsty arranges to distribute Shine’s body parts. ..errywhere! He’s involved on this level ?
Jamal is uploading The Collective. Erry body’s giddy & happy. Even Tory!
Renee is her name. #mamacookie She takes pictures & teaches. She fixes toast. They laugh. “Lo Lo” is like her. Can they have anything? ! Let’s try. Nice scenes. Alfre Woodward’s fan girl here.
Andre comes to see dad. He reports the Eddie, Anika situation. The Board will not accept his resignation. He’ s still…”number 1″ They’ll call a count. They’ve got Shine, But-but, Shine is dead! Andre ain’t happy bout that; coulda been an ally. But, “Oops”….too late. His replacement now controls the vote.
Lucious wants to put “Humpty Dumpty together again” cause without a body, he ain’t dead! Selfish reasons. All I thought about here were his many baby mamas & many kids. Many!
At Shine’s memorial, Lucious needs to buddy up to Shine’s wife, Tiffany. (Tiffany Oglesby) The real wife; although all the baby mamas are there, too. He gets close. Ever wonder if there are other lil’Lyon cubs out there? 🤔
Nessa sings #freedom and looks good in black. Nessa walks right past Andre, no words. Lucious does a eulogy #RIP dear friend. #wow smdh
In the audience are Becky & Jamal. Becky proclaims, “shoulda let Shine hit it”Ewww. #tmi .. and I bet he didn’t ask. 😝
Dre & Jamal make up. Aww #hugs & apology #brothers
Eddie shows up at the Memorial. He charms the widow & offers his services during this difficult time. And he still wants to deal with Kelly Patel & then retire in Turkey! Lucious still says “NO!” Eddie walks away. Confident #smiling
Lucious is desperate. He needs Tiffany to talk biz & Shine’s shares. But it’s Nessa; he gave it all to Nessa! #BOOM 👊
Beckman Poser is directing a movie & Hakeem is offered the role of a rapper. He’s shook & a fan of Haven ( Cassie Ventura) his #megastar co star.
Andre is talking to The Rev ( Malik Whitfield) He still hates Anika. #forgiveness Then Andre apologizes to Nessa. Cookie does too… almost. She can’t quite get the apology out. Why does she dislike Nessa?
Anyway, Lucious begs & then gives Nessa the prime 20/20 spot and more promises. She agrees & trust Lucious finds who killed his friend & her brother. Smdh What a waste!
Eddie meets with Anika over fast food Chinese. #highsodium Eddie plans to destroy “House of Empire” Lucious’ latest joint. And does, but “saves the day”
Beekman Poser (David Pasquesi) the director is…”Hollywood Shuffle” personified. #Roberttownsend Hakeem, “Not black enough” is fired He walk’s away, waving the good finger 🖕 Poser wants Jaden Smith now. #wypipo #blackactingschool But Haven, who previously shunned him, is impressed. 🤔
Eddie high jacked the showcase with a Blake pic @10 years old #nazi Boos all around. Although his daddy made him do it, Eddie fixes it; banning Blake from Empire #traitor Staging a coup
Hakeem kisses Haven full, on amidst flashing bulbs & Tiana’s,”Janet Jackson ” dance. Tiana sees & is distracted so dances harder. Lol.
Tonight was another filler with a few nicely placed surprises. Renee meets her grand sons. #sobs #hugs Hakeem may have a new bae “Hollywood Shuffle” shout out to Robert Townsend 👊 And Vanessa’s ( Sierra McClain) back with the power vote to save Empire! Oh. And Jussie Smollett directed! 👍 #jamallyon
There’s 2 more episodes till the finale. My greatest interest being “how will Eddie go out?” I hope it’s quick. Don’t want to see him in season 5
Empire airs, Wednesday’s @ 8:00 p.m. Pacific Time on Fox 🦊
