We are two episodes in now for the 3rd season of Empire and no Rhonda didn’t get a funeral yet!
Hakeem and Nessa seem to be clicking but Hakeem may have second thoughts about that because of her brother Shine (Xzibit) knocked a man clean out for looking at her.
Lucious is still dealing with the feds and trying to keep the illusion that he’s happily marred to Boo Boo Kitty. At the same time Lucious is still desperately trying to win Cookie back BUT she seems to be focused on Angelo Dubois (Taye Diggs) who is zeroing on Cookie.
They Lyon boys all have issues, whether it’s Jamal battling PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) after being shot by Freda Gatz, Andre talking to the ghost of his dead wife Rhonda while dealing with bipolar disorder and Hakeem’s drinking problem on top of being father of a baby girl.
The scene that took the cake though was Empire touching on the current tension between African Americans and the police in this country. In a powerful scene Andre is approached by two white police officers who following up on call of someone robbing a house. Andre is cleaning out the house him and Rhonda used to live in, of course the two officers are not trying to hear it and wrestle Andre to the ground. On top of everything draw their weapons on the grieving Lyon son and the episode ends.
