It’s the season finale and Eddie has a strong hold and Lucious by the balls. It ‘s clear Lucious killed the wrong one. Just sayin’. Tiana is back and pregnant.

Empire (S04E15) "Lean and Hungry Look"

Although I’ve often thought of the Shakespearean tragedy, “King Lear” when speaking of The Lyon’s, their Empire and eternal quest for power; tonight we’re on the Julius Caesar hype with a Lucious kinda caution. A Cassius, “lean and hungry look”  Greed & consequences.  However, on Empire Cassius could be anybody! Lucious himself, even! It simply depends on who…

Empire (S04E08) "Cupid Painted Blind"

I didn’t see anything in this episode to link the title, “Cupid Painted Blind”  so I watched it again.

Empire (S04E06) "Fortune Be Not Crost"

Most of the episode, I’m tryna find “crost”   I finally went to Dr Google & opened Merriam -Webster.
