Eddie is visiting Cookie and Lucious. He tells them that he is the reason Empire had so many doors opened for them. Things get heated. Lucious reaches for a knife, Eddie pulls a gun.

Empire Recap 5/16/18: Season 4 Episode 17 “Bloody Noses and Crack’d Crowns”

The board welcomed back Eddie by reinstalling him as the Executive Consultant on tonight’s all-new episode of "Empire". The board had believed Eddie was the only one that could turn around the company following this latest scandal. A scandal that laid on the Lyons. The Lyons were the ones that were supposed to get 20 for 20 up and running, but the first night was ruined when one of their up and coming rappers was revealed to have white supremacist ties. Blake had taken a picture with his father in which they had the Confederate flag in the background and were signaling Hitler. The picture had been horrible and it had destroyed whatever chances Blake had at Empire because the Lyons weren’t ones to forgive even if Blake had been telling the truth when he said his father forced him to take that photo back he was a kid.

Empire Season 4 Episode 18 Review: The Empire Unpossess'd

If you thought Empire could not get any more bonkers, then Empire Season 4 Episode 18 will have proven you wrong. The drama and stakes were dialed all the way up to a level I never thought possible from this Fox drama, and it was a satisfying conclusion to Empire Season 4 . If you've been reading my reviews already, you know that I've not been Anika's biggest fan. Her character lacked direction and has for the past couple of seasons.  ...Read More... https://www.tvfanatic.com/2018/05/empire-season-4-episode-18-review-the-empire-unpossessd/

Empire Season 4 Episode 17 Review: Bloody Noses and Crack'd Crowns

The Lyons have officially met their match in Eddie Barker. If Empire Season 4 Episode 17 proved anything, it's that the scheming is showing no sign of letting up, and that's exactly what I expect of a primetime soap opera. Eddie is a formidable opponent, and he may well be the series' best villain yet. He knows Lucious on both a personal and professional level and knows that he will resort to shedding blood if he needs to do it.   ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2018/05/empire-season-4-episode-17-review-bloody-noses-and-crackd-crowns/

Empire Season 4 Episode 16 Review: Fair Terms

Who will be caught in the crossfirein the battle between Lucious and Eddie? On Empire Season 4 Episode 16 , the pair proved they were not about to roll over without trying everything possible to win. It was predictable the board members wanted Eddie to be making the decisions. It also made very little sense. Overall, Eddie's actions have been sketchy, and given the state of his relationship with the board members up until this hour, it's too good to be true that he would get to oust the Lyons.   ...Read More.... https://www.tvfanatic.com/2018/05/empire-season-4-episode-16-review-fair-terms/

Empire Season 4 Episode 15 Review: A Lean and Hungry Look

Just when it seemed like Lucious Lyon's murderous tendencies were gone,they came back out to haunt him on Empire Season 4 Episode 15 . It was only a matter of time before the truth came out about Shine, but had Fox not spoiled the big reveal in the official preview, I would have been shocked to the core by the developments. Shine has always flown under the radar, and the random focus on his past with Luciouswas a dead giveaway.   ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2018/05/empire-season-4-episode-15-review-a-lean-and-hungry-look/

Empire Season 4 Episode 14 Review: False Face

Anikais back in the picture, and of course, up to her old tricks. There was alot to like about Empire Season 4 Episode 14 , but the return of Anika has to go down as one of the least satisfying twists yet. How many times will the Lyon family let her skate by without some repercussions that will send her away for good? ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2018/04/empire-season-4-episode-14-review-false-face/

Empire Season 4 Episode 13 Review: Of Hardiness is Mother

I don't know about anyone else, but I thought Empire Season 4 Episode 13 showcased the best and worst of this hit Fox drama series. We had various engaging plots and some that felt thrown in purely to get the episode up to the allotted running time. But, it is what it is. For example, it was only a matter of time before Cookie had to confront Bo, and I'm honestly surprised she hadn't already sent Luciouson a mission to get dole out some revenge.   ...Read More... https://www.tvfanatic.com/2018/04/empire-season-4-episode-13-review-of-hardiness-is-mother/

Empire Season 4 Episode 12 Review: Sweet Sorrow

Queen Cookie needs her rest. The family rallied around the matriarch on Empire Season 4 Episode 12 after a brush with death that was very likely brought on by the earth-shattering revelation that Andre was the one responsible for planting the bomb in Las Vegas. There were myriad other reasons for the near-heart attack, but learning your son tried to have his father murdered was very likely to do the trick.   ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2018/04/empire-season-4-episode-12-review-sweet-sorrow/

Empire Season 4 Episode 11 Review: Without Apology

Empire is intent on embracing all of the conventions of the soap opera of late, and I'm loving every single minute of it. Empire Season 4 Episode 11 proved that the explosive midseason premiere was just the tip of the iceberg and that insanity is only just beginning. Can I just say before we proceed that I would be on board for a Three Black Divas spinoff? The three-piece band was delightful.   ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2018/04/empire-season-4-episode-11-review-without-apology/
