‘Empire’ Punishes The Lyons All, Big and Small
Even the unborn Lyon feels the pain during this episode.
Fox’s ‘Empire’ is the worst, best, most-watchable show on television—and the latest episode featured plot twists aplenty. Here’s a breakdown on all the surprise turns and burns:
Hakeem doesn’t get nominated for an American Sound Award (but Freeda Gatz does).
The host of the award nomination ceremony asks Skye if she “identifies” as black and Jamal if he identifies as gay.
Mimi Whiteman takes the stage and reveals her wife: It’s Camilla!
After revealing secretly recorded footage of Lucious threatening to fire board members, Mimi suggests voting Lucious out from Empire’s CEO position, and schedules a last-minute board meeting to do so.
Camilla secretly shows up at Hakeem’s spot, and tells him to stick with her, no matter what.
She even grabs his package!
The board meeting is on—and Hakeem votes to REMOVE Lucious from his CEO position of Empire. It’s the deciding vote, and Lucious gets removed as the Empire chief.
…and then Mimi puts Camilla in charge of Empire.
Lucious doesn’t take it well, and starts shooting up his house.
Lucious and Cookie hug. YIKES.
Someone (Anika?) throws Andre’s pregnant wife down the stairs.
What’s next? We’ll have to wait until March to see, when Empire returns….
