Empire Season 2 Episode 17 Recap: Lyon Down

With the scare Lucious’ mother, Leah Walker, gave us last week on Empire, it’s good to see Lucious alive and preparing for the ASAs tomorrow. I’m not sure Lucious gave Cookie all the details about what happened that night with the cakes, but she thinks Lucious needs to work things out with his mother. He might need to hurry because as Leah was watching TV, she saw Lucious’ music video. You know, the one about his childhood living with a bipolar mother who apparently shot herself. I bet Leah’s not happy about that! I’m not sure whatever D-Major and Jamal […]

Empire Season 2 Episode 16 Recap: Mama Walker

Mama Walker is now a free woman and ready to tell her story on this week’s episode of Empire. Andre visits his grandmother in the nursing home during a game of bingo. Believe it or not, she recognizes Andre as her grandson. It’s his eyes. Leah must’ve been watching TV while away because she knows Lucious is famous. Since Jamal is the Lyon with the most ASA award nominations, he wanted to take charge and perform one of his new songs at the show. Now that Cookie is co-CEO she’s able to make changes to Jamal’s dream — such as […]

Empire Season 2 Episode 15 Recap: Just Like Old Times

This week’s episode of Empire starts off with Hakeem, a bunch of strippers, money and alcohol. Where’s Laura? This doesn’t sound good. Laura starts to blow up his phone but Hakeem doesn’t seem to care to return his fiancé’s texts. The game is on between Lucious and Jamal for the ASA Awards. It’s a real fight like Balboa and Creed, but this is between blood. May the best man win. Andre comes up with an idea to get Lucious on the board’s good side again as a way to help Cookie get the Lyons back in Empire. He proposes that […]

Empire Season 2 Episode 14 Recap: The Heir

On this week’s episode of Empire, Lucious makes it his mission to get back into his company and claim the throne as CEO of Empire. I cannot believe what I’m seeing. Thirsty is actually pulling a hair from little Lola’s head?! What is this skinny man up to? Ew. I do not like Anika playing the nice housekeeper and taking care of Rhonda. She politely escorts herself out of the room when Andre comes to visit, but I’m not buying her act. Anika starts vomiting in the toilet and Rhonda and Andre rush to see what’s wrong. At first she […]

Empire Season 2 Episode 13 Recap: Birthday Dinner

On last week’s episode of Empire, Lucious caught Camilla trying to hide her tracks after killing Mimi. He told her to take a sip of whatever it was that she gave Mimi and, surprisingly, she downed a bottle of prescription medication. I had my doubts about whether or not she actually took the pills but it looks like she did. Everyone is mourning the loss of Camilla during her service at Empire on this week’s episode of Empire. I guess Lucious hasn’t broken the news to his family about the role he played in Camilla’s death. Lucious tries pinning her death […]

Empire Season 2 Episode 12 Recap: The Dwight Walker Story

On last week’s episode of Empire, we saw Hakeem take the reins as the new CEO of Empire. While he’s still being controlled by his puppeteer, Camilla, it seems that Hakeem is willing to keep the business in the family. He’s allowed for Cookie to be the head of A&R, Andre to be the chief financial officer of Empire and president of Gutter Life Records, and for Jamal to focus on his music with Empire. I’m sure Camilla has a few words to say about all these decisions. Lucious is giving Hakeem three months as CEO before he’ll come crawling […]

Empire Season 2 Episode 11 Recap: Life, Death and Business

With Lucious losing the Empire to Mimi and Hakeem going against his own father by siding with Camilla, there are high expectations for the Season 2 return of Empire. We last saw Rhonda as she was pushed down the stairs in her new home — the one that Lucious so willingly paid for. Since Anika is pregnant with Hakeem’s secret misfit child, it would seem that Anika is at the top of the suspect list for who’s responsible. Jealousy is one ugly monster. Rhonda is left crawling on the floor to get her phone and call for help. She doesn’t get a […]

Empire Season 2 Episode 10 Recap: There goes the Empire?

On last week’s episode of Empire, we got to see the shocking kiss between Skye and Jamal. A new relationship might be budding, but we won’t be able to see much of where it goes — because this week is the Fall Finale of Empire. Sadly, this means we’ll have to endure a long break from our favorite show. The American Sound Awards nominees are being announced and Lucious already knows Empire artists will be on that list. Sure enough, Jamal is nominated for Best R&B Song with his song “Heavy,” but let’s see if he can be the first to […]

Empire Season 2 Episode 9 Recap: The Truth Hurts

Last week’s episode of Empire ended with Cookie and her sister Candice headed to Philly in search for their other sister Carol. Now that Cookie has to worry about her cookout event, she’s not worried about finding her sister Carol; especially if she’s going to have to search high and low. I guess it’s nice to know that this week’s episode shows Laura safe and practicing for the cookout with Hakeem. I definitely thought she was going to be bait for some twisted plan Anika had. What I will say is I wouldn’t let go of that theory just yet. […]
