Fox’s Record Breaking ‘Empire’ Two Hour Season Finale Was Epic! [Spoiler Alert]
The only excuse not to be watching (I mean “have watched” *crys*) Fox’s groundbreaking hit Empire is if you’ve been living under a rock, and for that I forgive you. But seriously, this show is everything! It has intrigue, fashion, celebrity, fame, sex, social issues, not to mention music by none other than the Timbaland. Ummm, who wouldn’t be watching?!
Clearly viewers have caught on because Empire has been breaking records left and right. It is the first show in DECADES that has consistently increased in viewership according to Nielsen ratings EVERY week since it’s premiere and I can assure you that the season finale tonight was no different.
The finale dealt with mental illness, betrayal, murder, religion, payback and had guest appearance from Snoop Dogg, Rita Ora, Patti LaBelle, and Jennifer Hudson. Not to mention father and son beef so bad that punches were thrown and blood was shed. As if that was not enough, there was some more crazy family dysfunction!
But what really made the finale for me was the inevitable epic catfight between Cookie (played by Taraji) and Annika. With Taraji P. Henson and Terrance Howard together again, this show has the Midas touch and for fans everywhere (especially this one) season two could not come any sooner.
