This Weeks Television Recaps: Empire

This week was filled so much excitement on television, from contest shows, reality, and my favorite Empire!!! For those who are not familiar with empire, this is a scripted show created by Lee Daniels and starring Terrence Howard as Lucious Lyon, Taraji P. Henson as Cookie Lyon, Bryshere Y. Gray as Hakeem Lyon, Jussie Smollett as Jamal Lyon, Trai Byers as Andre Lyon, Grace Byers as Anika Calhoun, and Sierra A. McClain as Nessa. Just to name a few, so on Wednesday’s episode the bomb dropped and secrets were unveiled all over the world wide. Someone hacked into empire’s database exposing dozens of emails, uncovering dirty messages and photos, but the real dirt unfolded from one of the Lyon children. You will never guess who is trying to take empire by force? None only then the older brother Mr. Andre Lyon himself , with the help of inside acquaintances and his new queen Nessa. I am telling you this episode had juice to spill and it’s all about to uncover the Lyon family’s hidden secrets.


I first began watching  empire as of last year, ever since then I have been getting my complete life. This show basically reveals all of the hidden dirt that big time companies try to cover up. Along with the whole scandal with Andre Lyon and his motives for becoming the only king in the jungle. Meanwhile, Jamal Lyon is in some real hot water, trying to cope with his PTSD from being shot by  Freda Gatz, played by Bre-Z.  The personal struggles in Jamal’s life is really taking a toll on him and almost lead to his death. Thankful Jamal only blacked out in the final scene of Wednesday’s episode. P.S. when Cookie Lyon said the L-word, I almost fell to the ground. Are you finally going to come on the empire train? Well here is a clip of the next episode airing Wednesday, November 30th at 9pm on FOX.
