Like so many season finales this year, I literally don’t know what happened, even though I’ve watched every minute of it. Let’s go down what happened in bulleted points, because I’d be writing for days if I went second by second.

First of all, I know this recap is HECKA late. I’m so sorry for that; I had a lot of work to catch up on and some job opportunities to apply for, and then my internet went out…so things got hectic. Anyway, enough of my apologizing. Let’s just skip all the pretense and get into what was really pearl-clutching about Empire‘s penultimate episode, “Sins of the Father.”
Empire is on the tongues of everyone who watches TV nowadays. the Fox series has made waves every week since its premiere, and the buzz has only gotten bigger.
I was very excited to speak with one of Empire‘s screenwriters, Eric Haywood. We discussed the state of TV diversity, what fans can expect from the rest of the season, and the 411 on the one issue Empire fans have with the show—that it’s on the same night as black-ish.
What an episode! There were twists and turns, guns and sizzurp, scheming and elevator breaches, hacks and mental breakdowns, and a sweet comeuppance moment for Jamal!
Lucious Lyon is a big hypocrite. I think what I’m writing has been painfully obvious from the beginning of Empire, but this episode, “The Lyon’s Roar,” clearly shows in stark detail how much of a hypocrite Lucious is. He tells Jamal to sing his truth, and then gets mad when that truth isn’t what he wants it to be.
AAAAAAAAAAAAUUGGGHHH!!!! Usually I reserve this kind of beginning for Downton Abbey recaps. But this time, this is for Empire! Also, this is a good scream!
Empire is really introducing some hard “OMG” moments now with the episode “Dangerous Bonds.” I don’t know what I’m excited/scared for the most—Andre tearing his brothers apart or Cookie running for her life now that she’s got some powerful gangsters killed!
Empire has really shown TV networks what a show with a black main cast can do. The series, states IndieWire, has made Fox history, become the first show in 22 years to increase ratings and viewership for the network. In fact, each week, it tops itself in the ratings, quickly becoming this TV season’s juggernaut.
