Empire review(S2 Ep.16)

Empire took crazy to the top floor, last night. I’m talking penthouse level, you hear me? So, Andre thinks he is showing up his dad by bring home Luscious’ mom from the group home she’s been living in for the past several decades. Turns out she didn’t shoot herself because there weren’t any bullets in the gun. Great! But, *thinking to myself* how did little Dwight Walker get his mama put away all by himself? But,anyway. Mama walks in, Luscious is beyond shocked and the rest of the family is strangely calm,in my opinion. But I guess when you come from a family as dysfunctional as that one,nothing really surprises them anymore. Thirsty,Luscious’ henchman makes the annoying reporter, Harper Scott disappear. (I was expecting that one.) Rhonda.  Andre’s wife figured out that Anika was the one that pushed her down the stairs and caused her to lose her baby. I knew those red bottomed shoes would come back and tell on her. Why would you wear your Christian Louboutin’s to break into a house anyway? Who know? Maybe they were her only comfy flats. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Jamal has a new “DL” lover,(D-Major) that came to light in a scene that was way to hot for Prime time. Hey! I’m old school. I didn’t need to see all that manly, sweaty, sexy rough housing and stuff. Moving on. Hakeem is still showing his insecurities when it comes to romance. He was giving Tiana the serious, “I want you” look after their rehearsal for the ASA awards. His fiancee, Laura is not too happy he will be working so closely with her again. Luscious has a tender moment with his mom when they share a song they used to play back in the day. He continuously corrects her  when she calls him, Dwight. He ends up using his mom’s song for the big Lyon’s family reunion song. Which is actually about the best song I have heard all season. Some other stuff happened with Cookie’s sisters,but not enough to really mention so I am sticking to the juicy stuff.

So we get through all that and Luscious comes home to find that his mama(who said she was no longer sick) is actually still several sandwiches shy of a picnic and about as stable as a one legged table on an ice cube. Luscious sees that she has baked about 12 cakes. She has dismissed the maid and she is holding a rather large knife and making Luscious,eat the cake! (Did you just read that as Ike Turner?) I know you did. She goes on to tell him how he ruined her life and how she should have killed him long ago. It is probably the first time Luscious really looks terrified. ( I was kinda scared myself) The episodes end with Luscious stuffing his mouth with cake and me wondering how Luscious will get rid of his mom. Will he poison her? Will he get Anika to do a repeat stair pushing performance? Or will he conveniently leave a gun near her?(Fully loaded this time) Only a few episodes left. Stay tuned.

I didn’t forget about the Captain America:Civil War review. I just had to talk about this one today.
