Empire’s Finale, Fist Fights, Manslaughter and Crazy, Crazy, Crazy

Empire Gossip, framed


Suzanne Coleman

Oooooo so much drama, I don’t know how you’re going to handle this… and all of the QUESTIONS!  Where are the answers!  I don’t want to wait until next season, I want to know NOW!

Tonight’s was a show about fights, that’s for sure.  They were blowing up all over the place.  And one that didn’t end so well… between Vernon and Andre, and his wife.  Vernon was pounding on Andre’s face when his wife walked in on them on the floor.  Did you see how that girl whacked Vernon on the back of the head with that trophy thing?   I knew what was going to happen next… ooOoooo.

Poor Vernon!  I am going to miss that guy.  He was such a good character and actor.  I hope he went to a better place.  Now what will become of Rhonda and Andre, and THEIR BABY?!  Omg, the drama…

It’s interesting that Vernon apparently raised the boys while Cookie was in jail and Lucious was busy being a king of his empire.  Maybe that’s why the kids are so messed up?  Vernon was a pretty violent guy.  I guess he never heard of talking things through.  It’s too bad, because look where it took him.

On to round two, Cookie and Anika, they threw down!  Did that get it out of their systems?  I don’t know, it looked like Cookie was ready to go a few more rounds didn’t it?  You know she’s had enough practice in that prison.  Anika better not forget to watch her back, well, Cookie too.  Those two are dangerous!   Would’ve been better if they took off their earrings first but, hey, it was still pretty entertaining!  When Anika grabbed Cookie’s hair I was wondering if a wig was going to come off lol.

Hmmm…  so these two think they’re going to be able to work together to take over Empire from Lucious?  I don’t know about that…

Speaking of Lucious, who turned him in?  Sounds like it was Vernon, but was it Andre and Hakeem too?  The way that they looked at him as he walked by on his way to the cesspool that is the jail on this show sure looked like they were in on the takedown, didn’t it?  What do you think?

Round three, Jamal and “The Black Rambo.”  (Black Rambo, love that!)  It was great how Jamal handled this guy’s disrespectful behavior with a song fight with the rapper, instead of a real one.  That was a very classy way to stand up to someone who has too much hate in their heart.  I think Jamal won, what about you?  Looks like Jamal has a gift for handling conflicts without violence.

Oh wait, I forgot about the scene between Jamal and Billy the owner of the other music empire…  Jamal physically threatens to drop him off a skyscraper.  Now just how does that fit into his otherwise nonviolent persona?  Hmm…  see the next paragraph.

I have to admit, the plot is still confusing me.  I mean, it’s jumping around left and right, love, hate, relationships breaking, reforming, so fast I’m dizzy.  People’s characters changing radically from one episode or scene to the next…  I wish they would stop… but that’s how they want it it seems.  Hopefully people won’t give up on the show over time because of it.

There were some special musical guests tonight.  Patti LaBelle, what a sweet voice that woman has.  So smooth… I would have loved to hear more.  And Jennifer Hudson did a great job tonight with her pieces as well.  It was nice to have a variety of voices expressing themselves on the show.  I still miss Tiana and Hakeem working together, and Hakeem and Jamal.  Their collaborative pieces really brought out the strengths that both artists have, together.

I am missing sassy Cookie too.  She was back for a minute when she sat down at the table to receive her gift from Lucious (now THAT was a bomb moment, wasn’t it? lol!).  Keep that sass girl!  Don’t lose it on me now.

Looking back over the season, I think that the white party scene was one of the best scenes I have ever seen.  They pulled together music, emotional heights, community, support, and pure joy.  Plus fashion.  Can’t go wrong with that!

This is a great show and I’m excited to see what they bring us next season.  Congrats to all involved with the show on its success!
