Cookie vs. Boo Boo Kitty Cat Fight
In what may be the catfight of 2015, Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson) and arch rival Anika "Boo Boo Kitty" Calhoun (Grace Gealey) got into a knock-down-drag-out fight. The drama started with verbal sparring, escalated to a thrown drink and ended with Cookie choking Anika on the table.
A Pregnant Rhonda Bludgeons Vernon
Vernon (Malik Yoba) dropped by to hash out things with Andre (Trai Byers). Their disagreement turned into a bloody fight. With Andre on the losing end of the battle, Rhonda (Kaitlin Doubleday) rushed into the room and defended her husband by bludgeoning Vernon. When Andre wanted to call the police, Rhonda stopped him by revealing she is pregnant!
Hakeem and Boo Boo Kitty Hook Up
If you thought Boo Boo Kitty was only going to seek revenge on Lucious in the boardroom you were mistaken. She took it to the bedroom as well, by bedding her ex's beloved youngest son!
Lucious strode into Billy Beretti’s (Judd Nelson) party and discovered Boo Boo Kitty and Hakeem (Bryshere Gray) hooking up. That young man has quite the Oedipus Complex, doesn't he?
Jamal and Patti LaBelle’s Epic Duet
Empire’s two-hour season finale featured many amazing performances, but my favorite saw Jamal (Jussie Smollett) doing a duet with the legendary Patti LaBelle. Jamal, the previously reviled gay son, had been named heir to Empire. When Lucious was arrested, he asked Jamal to take his place on stage. The middle Lyon son did not disappoint next to Lady Marmalade herself in the spotlight.
Lucious Lyon Locked Up
I don’t need to do anything more than quote Lucious Lyon himself.
“You may think you’ve gotten away with it, but don’t fool yourselves; this is the only beginning. The streets couldn’t defeat me. Disease couldn’t stop me. Even god can’t kill me. The day will come when Lucious Lyon will return. Game time, bitches!”
