"Empire" Questions

I watched The Cookie Show again this morning and then turned on some music.  Seemed fitting that Jazzmine Sullivan's "Forever Doesn't Last Too Long" because that's what I was thinking.  Forever sure in the hell doesn't last too long anymore.

My thoughts on Lucious?  That dude has the type of issues I wouldn't want to be anywhere around.  Watching Cookie fall out of love with him has been eye opening to say the least.  See...had he not divorced her while she was in jail, she never would have.  She would have stayed married to him like Whitney and Bobby and being around that level of ugly on a regular basis would have surely turned her into a Cookie we wouldn't like.

Cookie is, above all else, a mother.  And she has shown that time and time again.  She will put her kids first no matter what and realizing what Lucious subjected them to while she was locked up has awakened her into a MAJOR MAMA BEAR.  

Sure, she's a woman and she has needs so I'm really wondering if Lucious asks her to marry him again, will she?  I mean...sure...she is digging Sweetface big time but she's a smart businesswoman and knows that Lucious is dying so if she marrieds him then she doesn't have to worry about anyone taking Empire away from her and her kids.

Lucious is so germy to me.  I don't like him at all.  Dude is the worst-er-est.

QUESTIONS:

1.  Do you think Lucious was lying about the baby?

2.  Do you think he will still ask Cookie to marry him?  Do you think she'll say yes?

3.  Do you think Cookie will accept that bipolar disorder is very real and her son has it?

4.  Do you think Lucious and Vernon are going to have a for real show down?

5.  What do you LIKE about Lucious?

6.  Besides Cookie...who is your favorite character and why?

7.  Will they ever find out what Boo Boo Kitty did to Elle?

8.  Lucious has offended each of his sons beyond reason.  Do yall think they are going to mount up and be done with him lead by Jamal and take over the company?  

9.  Were you surprised at how Andre's wife went in on Lucious about those shares?

10.  Who do YOU think should run the company?

"Empire"

I tried to watch "Empire" twice before I forced myself to sit still and watch it for real.  The first episode was pilot-ish and we all know how pilots can go but I hung in there.  I was scared about Cookie because I really didn't want Taraji's talent to go wasted by being the stereotypical Black mama from the hood.  When she grabbed that broom...I was like...AW...LAWD...HERE WE GO.

By the second episode when Porsha was introduced, I started seeing all of the nuances that I love about Taraji's range.  She's angry, loving, motherly, bitchy, bossy, strong, tough, weak, heartbroken, hopeful, et al.

LOVE.THAT!

Yall know Lee Daniels is gay right?  Well...if you didn't...he's going to always make sure you know.  Jamal being gay and the struggle with his father because of him being gay and his father's refusal to accept him as he is is a bit much for me...but I know it happens exactly like that sometimes.  I mean hell...his mother would fight for him and she still calls him names behind his back.  I wonder if that ish goes down like that still in 2015?  I seriously hope not cuz trying to throw that baby away like that broke my heart.

The younger son is an extremely talented actor unless that's his for real personality.  I mean...he has that character DOWN-T!  I love his voice and the music!  Oh...the music has me about to ask Mr. Google where I can find it!

The Obama stuff got the side eye from me but I get it.

I guess.

And man...are these people racist.  They say some serious racist ish and don't think twice about it.

The bi-polar older son and his wife?  Oh...that's gonna play out intensely I'm sure.  She seems to be type who understands the phrase, "By any means necessary."

Quinton (yall know who Quinton is so don't act like it) is being him.  Even faced with death...he isn't about to deal with any disrespect from anyone except his wife cuz um...she took her clothes off to prance in front of his ex-wife and yeah...that was disrespectful.  

Cookie is going to get her soon, soon and very soon.  I see it coming.  It's going to go down Alexis and Crystal Carrington style and you know this MAN!!!!!

That elevator scene was SO.TENSE and perfect.  LOVED.THAT!

I sure wish I could see that young lady as anything other than Precious.  *sigh*  I need to do better in life I know.

Are you watching?  What do you think so far?  Are you enjoying it?  Were you worried in the beginning?

Are you here for Cookie?
