(www.BlacksinHollywood.com) – If you’re a fan of the hit series “EMPIRE,” the season finale will make your head explode. But, before you go any further with this post be aware there are serious SPOILERS to the Season Finale throughout the article.
>>>> SPOILER ALERT <<<<>>>>> SPOILER ALERT <<<<
Empire’s first season finale comes as the record company – and the Lyons family – is in utter chaos. There isn’t a shread of family loyalty and few members of the family are sane. While we see Andre begin to fall in love with his therapist – a practice that is unethical and common in real life – he begins to emerge as the one whose life actually has hope for healing.
Meanwhile, Cookie plays a dangerous game with disasterous reaults. Look for sexy man Derek Luke to be dealt with for bedding Lucious’ ex-wife, Cookie. In a bonehead decision, Luke’s character whisks Cookie off to a romantic cabin and “loves her down” all the while an unsuspecting Lucious wonders where he’s at. Luke’s character meets his fate when the truth comes out.
Meanwhile, Lucious feels a desperate need to train one of his sons in his imagine and despite his hesitations turns to Jamal. Taking his son back to the neighborhood where it all began gives Jamal a much needed appreciate of exactly how hard Lucious and Cookie worked for their family. Jamal feels selfish and needs to prove his loyalty to his father – and to himself. He tells his dad he’s ready to “take it” from anyone who gets in his way. Convinced, Lucious introduces Jamal to the underworld of the music industry. Drugs become a problem for anyone in this lifestyle. Look for drugs fo play a huge role in the finale.
While Lucious may be dying, he is not dead and he has no intention of going out quietly. Still, the toll of being all alone in life adds up and he feels a pull to be a better man. Ironcially, Andre feels the same way and holds a meeting with his dad to tell him he cannot work in the unhealthy conditions anymore. Andre attends church with his therapist and Lucious – whose name means Lucifer – isn’t happy. What happens next is completely unexpected.
