'Empire' Season 4, Episode 4 recap: “Bleeding War”

Say what you want about Empire, but you can’t deny that the show is entertaining. Personally, I see it as the perfect representation of today. It’s often very busy, loud, fast and classless — a combination that often demands a good time. And episode four, “Bleeding War,” gives us exactly that.

But once 10 or so pieces are in place and connected, you’re anxious to figure out where the other rigid parts belong. The most exciting, yet challenging part of it all is that you already saw the picture on the front of the box....

'Empire' Season 4, Episode 2 recap: “Full Circle”

On the last episode of Empire, we were left with Cookie making a promise that Lucious would remember her again—and as we all know by now, Cookie keeps her promises. Surprisingly though, “Full Circle” begins with shady nurse Claudia running a sexy bath for the one-legged Lucious. Although the imagery suggested that some steamy love making was about to go down, it’s quickly made clear...
