"A kind of song that makes a man love a man" Empire's ratings were even higher last night & Jamal finally came out through his father's song. Tensions arose, secrets were revealed & a lot of hearts were crushed. This episode had everything; a hot tune, a party , conflicts & Cookie in the flesh.
We get it Lucious, you are sick, even though you are about to die, I cannot feel sorry for you, you are playing a game that you are not gonna be able to play for much longer, Cookie & Anika are both gorgeous women, but you gotta choose who do you want to spend your last days with.
Also, Jamal was inspired by the words of the documentary guy, so he took his life for a spin & came out publicly on the white party. What's going to be ahead of him are the repercussions for his actions, specially the effect it has on the people he cares about.
On the other hand, we finally sympathised with Hakeem, whose mommy issues are being explored in the series. The reason he's with Camilla is because he missed his mother, someone to look out for him, now that she's back, we are ready to say bye-bye to the fashion designer.
Andre is trying to take over the family business by force, making the chairmen from the board, vote. He did not get what he wanted & he realised that he's always excluded from the family, since he lacks of musical talent like the rest of his family. Lucious rejected him over & over again. Poor Andre, probably he's gonna end up killing himself, we got a brief glimpse of that.
In conclusion, this show's keep getting better, the characters are progressing on his life goals & the songs are becoming breakthrough hits around the world. Let's not forget that the jewels of this empire's crown are Terrence Howard & Taraji P. Henson.
The verdict from 'The Lyon's Roar' reflects the impact it had on me as a viewer, as well as plot-related issues.
