Guiding Light’s Tina Sloan Shines in What May Be Empire’s Best Episode to Date Jamey Giddens August 18, 2012 All My Children, Days of Our Lives, Empire, General Hospital, One Life to Live, The Bold and the Beautiful, The Young and The Restless 15 Comments In what may quite possibly be the best episode of Brian Hewson and Gregory Turner's webisoap Empire to date, publishing maven Theodora Crane (Guiding Light's Tina Sloan) painfully recalls her past, while Jake (Toby Levin) learns a shocking secret about his, involving Valerie (As The World Turns' Yvonne Perry). While I've long been amused by Empire, seeing it as campy, soap spoof fun (Remember that chick chained to the wall?), the webisoap got real this week, which served it in good stead. Bravo to the creators and director Fritz Brekeller (All My Children) ! Watch this week's episode of Empire below.
