Empire Recap, 11/18/15

So happy to see ‪#‎Empire‬ rebounding from those first couple of shows. Well let’s get to recapping…this episode kicked off with Lucious getting his secret daughter, I mean new protege’ hyped to do battle with Hakeem. ThugTasia came out the gate, firing shots at Hakeem….saying she’s the son Lucious never had. I was looking for someone to hand Hakeem some Liquid Stitch because Freda Gatz tore him a new one….. Of course, the baby Lyon was not to be outdone. He challenged Freda to a rap battle. I’ll admit, I wasn’t expecting too much from Hakeem, but he brought it! Freda got in some jabs, but he got in that Holly Holms kick that laid Freda out. Not only did he outrap her, but he ended it by dropping his last name.

While Hakeem was getting hyped for his rap battle, BooBoo Kitty was learning what happens when you dont wrap it up. That kidnapping sex Hakeem dropped on her left her with a little bun and I’m not talking about the Cinnabon special. In true let-me-take-a-second-test-because-I-can’t-beleive-this-ish fashion, the EPT confirmed that she was WAB (with a baby). BooBoo Kitty headed over to break the news to Hakeem but before she could tell him, he informed her that he’s in love…with someone else.

Laz and Hakeem got into a fight because Hakeem doesn’t trust his mama’s boo. Cookie slapped the mess outta Laz for messing with her baby.

Jamal tried to solicit help from his mother and father for his song for Pepsi, but of course, they couldn’t get along, so he decided to work on his own and merge something from both parents. He got the deal and ……yawn……

Cookie’s sister, Candy (ok, Candace, played by Vivica A. Fox) showed up to tell her their other sister had left town….and left her kids behind. The sisters obviously have a strained relationship and I can’t wait to online casino see what kind of havoc they create. (Psst, Lee, I’m still open to play Cousin Brownie)…

Hakeem’s dramatic dissing of his last name spurred a memory of when Lucious was a homeless biracial little boy and came up with the last name Lyons because he saw a statue of a lion….

Awww snap, BooBoo Kitty bout to snap! Somebody slip her some of Andre’s meds, because she is losing her mind! Hakeem walked his girl to the car, but when she got in, the camera shifted to the front seat and it was BooBoo Kitty wearing one of Becky’s wigs! Wonder what she’s planning for her competition. Poor BooBoo Kitty….dumped by father and son….somebody tell her a desperate Cougar aint cute. .

Well, that”s it for this week……My timeline used to be filled with Empire posts….now you have to scroll….and scroll….and scroll….But if you stopped watching, you can still read my recaps!

PS-Rhonda is 32 months pregnant…and finally got a baby bump!

PPS – I don’t know which family is more dysfunctional….the Lyons or the Popes…

PPPS – My fav, Alicia Keys is on next week…but ummm, is she playing a lesbian singer struggling with her truth?…I see the memes coming…
