I have to admit I didn’t care much for the episode of Empire this week (Sins of the Father). 😦 It hurts to confess that since this is one of my favorite shows.
I understand certain characters had to make some unexpected shifts to get plot ball rolling in a desired direction, but much of it seemed forced for shock value.
Andre’s bi-polar crisis fits perfectly in the storyline since it was introduced early in the series. Trai Byers does a great job at delivering the symptoms of bi-polar on screen. His performance last week was outstanding!
On the other hand, Vernon’s drug habit came out of left field and I wasn’t sure how to feel about it because it seemed so out of character. And Luscious admitting he’s Lola’s father… It was a good twist, no doubt, but the way it was delivered seemed off. It was a tad bit uncomfortable to watch.
Just my 2 cents. I still love the show though.
Every week I look forward to more Cookie! LOL! Can’t get enough of her. Taraji P. Henson is flawless.
Can’t wait for next week’s two-hour finale!
