Empire Recap!!

Published

on

Empire Recap!! Empire Records partnered with racist high-end designer Helen von Wyeth to bring mainstream appeal to the label with a fashion show. But this woman is as a racist as they come. As Empire’s female pop star, Tiana was set to headline the fashion show but not without restrictions, such as wearing straight hair.

“I expect to be able to run a fine-tooth comb through her hair by show time,” Helen demanded.

The show’s newest power couple Andre and Nessa plotted to replace Tiana while Jamal finally uncovered the real source of his PTSD. A bomb is going to explode and it will have something to do with Nessa and Andre. He is definitely more like his father than he wishes to be and he is fallen for Nessa but is she really falling for Andre?

Ever since Nessa hooked up with Andre, her dark side has made one hell of a debut. With the help of her new boo, Nessa snatched the spotlight from Tiana when she “accidentally” set Tiana’s gown on fire and secretly recorded her meltdown about Helen’s racist tactics.

“Helen von Wyeth will destroy me for this,” Tiana yelled at Nessa. “That b—h didn’t even want me in her stupid white-washed show to begin with.”

When the clip leaked online, Andre naturally performed damage control. Basically, he strong-armed Helen and cut off her daughter’s hair to ensure Nessa clinched the performance instead. That is some devious and scary sh$t, Andre is dangerous, how do you cut someone else’s daughters hair off while they are sleeping at home and in their bed? Don’t cross the Lyons, payback is torture.

After Helen felt a Andre’s wrath, she allowed Nessa to perform a song about Black girl magic with huge, natural hair. That only made Tiana pissed and she then realized that Nessa set her up but it was ultimately Tiana’s fault for running her mouth. In this day and age, their are recording devices everywhere, especially on a cell phone.

Hakeem realized Andre and Nessa sabotaged Tiana’s entire performance, where he was supposed to make a cameo to resurrect his career after his failed live stream. “So you planned this whole thing right from the jump?,” he confronted Andre. “You’re not gonna get away with it, bro.”

Hakeem later comforted Tiana as Nessa’s fashion show performance aired. Chemistry brewed again between the two, but no sparks just yet. During tea with Lucious and Anika, Grandma Lyon publicly accused Lucious of physical abuse. Overheard by Tariq, he tried to flip Grandma Lyon to help make his case against Lucious. Is he that dumb? Lucious is always one step ahead of the game. By show’s end, however, her crazy act was revealed as a plot planned by Lucious to find out why his half-brother hates him. The truth? “It’s all ’cause of Joe,” she told Lucious about his father. “He’s jealous of everything you got, especially your memories of your daddy.”

Now that Lucious knows Tariq’s Achilles heel, it’s only a matter of time before he uses his weakness to stay out of jail. Fed up with his father’s ways, Jamal confronted Lucious with a new song about Lucious’ “heartless” behavior towards the entire Lyon lot. Though Jamal thought the tune would turn the whole family against Lucious, but Hakeem and Andre sat silently without saying a word, they are more like their father than they let on.

“You can’t release that song Jamal,” she said. “It’s not black and white.”

As he stood up to Lucious alone, Jamal learned some hard truths, including the fact that Cookie’s the culprit behind Freda Gatz’s father being killed.

“You’re standing there breathing because I’m willing to do the dirty work necessary to keep this family safe,” Lucious said. “When your mama called in a hit to clean up a mess that she had made with Freda’s father, who do you think answered that call?”

Lucious may be wrong about a lot of things, but not this time. DAMN, DAMN, DAMN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Queen Sugar Finale aired and it left us with a lot of questions and that’s the way a show should end. One of the best drama series on tv right now, hate the season ended but it gives us a reason to get ready for next season!!

Nova is sitting with her reporter friend at the farmhouse while her friend interviews one of the farmers that works at the farm. Darla shows up; she wants to get some of her things from inside the house, but Nova isn’t having it, she already doesn’t trust Darla, and can’t understand why she never told anyone the truth about Blue, and why she would tell now? Darla held on to this secret for 7 years. Darla tries to explains her lies, she chose what she thought was best for Blue, but Nova tells her; she chose lies, not what was best.

Charley is so mad at the Landry’s, they are affecting her mill and her money, she confronts Jacob Boudreaux, who admits he has been worried about Charley’s next game plan. He admits to spreading rumors about her farm. He wants Charley, he is intrigued by her, he begins to flirt with her and she is just playing a game.

Another farmer lets Ralph Angel know they can’t work with the Queen Sugar mill anymore; they’re nervous about all the rumors. At the mill, Charley is on the phone trying to save her mill but the owners are worried about the rumors and the machinery at the mill isn’t working properly, but those are lies coming from the Landry’s.

Hollywood receives a phone call from the lawyer from the rig lawsuit, who tells him that the company settled for triple the amount they originally thought they would. Hollywood screams to V that they are now rich. Hollywood is the type of person who will share his money with the world.

Ralph Angel confronts Darla about her lies and she tells him she couldn’t remember who she slept with at that time and she did what she thought was best for Blue. Ralph Angel tells Darla they are over, he can’t trust her at all but he will always be Blue’s father. He then picks Blue up from Aunt V, Blue was sleep but he woke up once he saw his face and asked his pop where has he been? Ralph Angel explained to him it was harvest time and he told Blue how he got his name.

I love the relationship Ralph Angel and Blue have, he loves his pop, to take him away would break Ralph Angel’s heart and tear Blue up.

Empire Recap

Published

on

Empire has returned and I am so happy, this episode didn’t disappoint but the last few were a disappointment. So how does Lucious go from not remembering his past and not walking to walking and remembering more of his past every day? I am so confused but this episode was definitely entertaining.

Hakeem and Anika are in family court fighting each other for full custody of baby Bella. I must say, Hakeem stepped up to the plate to be the best father he could be and now he’s fighting Anika for his daughter. The morning of the hearing, of course Hakeem has his family in court with him as well as Tiana.

The courtroom is full of vultures, who will do whatever it takes to get the next story to sell, they have cameras and picket signs in the court room. This female judge wasn’t playing with anybody and she seems like a tough judge. I didn’t know Angelo was an attorney, I thought his cousin was the attorney but I guess not because he is Anika’s attorney and everyone knows that he is only trying to get back at Cookie for humiliating him. Angelo gives his opening argument, the judge sends best wishes to his mother.

Angelo goes all the way in on the Lyons and praises Anika when he doesn’t even know her. Does the judge know that Anika killed her future son in laws baby by pushing her off the balcony? Anika is very sneaky, she always has a trick bag with her and this makes no difference. While Angelo praises Anika, he doesn’t praise Hakeem, he talked about his drug and sex parties. Angelo calls The Lyons criminals and thugs, he says they are not in a position to have baby Bella with them at all. Anika did do time, her skeletons came out in court and she was still able to get full custody of her daughter.

Hakeem is definitely worried about his baby, Angelo calls Cookie to the stand, and prison comes up. Cookie is smart, her street smartness gives her game, she knew how to handle herself in court. She talks about Hakeem and how he’s a wonderful father to his daughter, the kind of parent she wanted to be but couldn’t. Angelo brings up the fight between Anika and Cookie, calling Cookie violent but never saying anything bad about Anika. At one point in her life Anika was going to kill herself and she asked Cookie to take care of Bella. All of a sudden whack a$$ Angelo brings up that Cookie had thugs beat him up.

Lucious is back, the real Lucious but I’m still not convinced that he ever lost his memory, I believe he was just playing his part. Lucious decides he wants to testify and he gets that chance, when Angelo asks Lucious about his past as “the scariest man in music,” Lucious claims he can’t remember due to his memory loss. Lucious loves Bella and all the memories she’s given him, because of Bella, he wants to try and change his ways for the best!

Hakeem, decides to fire his lawyer and speak for himself, he really didn’t have a legitimate reason as to why he fired him but he did and that was that. He gets Anika on the stand asking personal questions about Bella. Then Hakeem reminds her that his door was always open; he wanted her to get to know Bella, but she had to file this custody suit on him.

Mrs. DuBois has returned just in time to throw Hakeem under the bus, she gets on the stand and talks about how she finds Hakeem a very pleasant young man, which she knows because he’s spent every Tuesday afternoon with her for the past five months. The look on Cookie’s face was priceless. Mrs. Dubois also videotaped their meetings, he betrayed his family when he says terrible, damning things about every single member of his family: Jamal has his pills, Andre has his illness, he also says Andre’s baby dying was “probably for the best”, Hakeem wishes Cookie was still in jail, and Lucious is a monster.

Of course the judge rules and gives Anika full custody of baby Bella. Hakeem is devastated, the entire Lyon family is hurting for Hakeem and Bella.
