On the mid-season finale, the financial security of the Lyon family is on the line as their LFM showcase quickly approaches.

Meanwhile, Hakeem and Tiana finally reach an agreement on how best to move forward with their relationship.

    Its Kingsley…. Him and Dre got into it and both were injured severely.. Dre almost died but Kingsley is dead…

  • Judah74

    Yea that sounds good i cant see kingsley taking dre spot…straight not interested

  • Addicted2RealityTv

    did you miss an episode? that got locked off quite early. They were only smashing to get control of empire

  • Inipow

    Yep sure do , but I turn away when hetero’s are too graphic as well . But tell me while you in my business…

    DID I LIE !!! A spade is a spade and a Queen is a QUEEN and unlike you true QUEENS ARE NOT INSULTED BY BEING CALLED A QUEEN . KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT THE KIDS BEFORE YOU STEP UP EMBARASSING YOURSELF WITH CLOSET BEHAVIOR .

    Next question… Peddle that homophobic bullshit elsewhere.

  • Maecl Lourde Romaneo

    Are we supposed to forget that Kingsley & Giselle were fvcking doggy style at the beginning of the season? They dropped that whole aspect of their relationship! Sloppy writing.

  • Maecl Lourde Romaneo

    Queen Daniels? Really? Kind of homophobic, ma’am. You must turn away from the TV when Jamal is tonguing down his bf, huh?

  • Maecl Lourde Romaneo

    Andre is too sexy to die! I can’t take him in those tight muscle shirts and skinny pants showing off that succulent fat ass! Mmmm, that n)gga!

  • Inipow

    Why wouldn’t it make sense ? PLEASE explain why it wouldn’t?It would be a plot twist dear heart .

  • Ana Torres

    Hard to say if Andre will die but I can see it happen. His storyline has stagnated since Ronda died and they backed him into a corner when he tried killing his father. Its been a destructive path since then so if a Lyon son has to die I can see it be him.

  • Ana Torres

    It wouldn’t make sense to make him some nephew. Either he’s Luscious son or he’s not. It looks like he is right now. Just hope if anyone dies Kingsley does too.

  • Ana Torres

    The season hasn’t ended yet. Just the mid season finale.

  • Ana Torres

    It can still be Andre. To throw us off either way by makig us believe its him and then making us believe its too obvious. It can go either way.

  • Ana Torres

    Kigsley could still be killed no matter who’s in the coffin. I hope that’s the case.

  • Ana Torres

    Maybe but I still don’t know that he would be that broken up seeing how evil Kingsley has been. Guilt yeah grief I’m not so sure. I can see him feel more grief stricken over a closer son like one of the other three.

  • Esther Cole

    Kingsley dies. It’s obvious. When the season started they showed luscious at a funeral. He knows it’s his son now so he goes and he onviously feels bad the son he never knew he had is dead.

  • ExtraChocolate80

    Agreed all this timeline jumping back and forth and getting on my last nerves.

  • Giggl3zDoNtGivAfUk

    no lie, i hate kingsley, but this episode really made me feel bad for him.

  • Lovë 22

    I hope it isn’t Andre but if it is I could understand. He (Trai) and Anika (Grace) got some real life to live and a family to start lol

  • Shondeon

    This is just for suspense!!! You know the saying….”You should see the other guy!!!???” So, Andre could be in the ER. But, prior to going, he dug Jeff Kinsey the final blow! Besides, Andre (Trai Byers) can’t leave. Anika (Grace Gealey) is already at home w/ a baby. Somebody has to work! lol

  • i think you have to wait for longer than a week. mid season finale tonight

  • crystal wilcox

    he tried to te’ll her twice if she woulkd just listen to her man she woukdnt have been so surprised and andre probably does die about time

  • Lisa J. Taylor

    If Andre dies im over it!!! im done!!! FINITO!!!

  • Butifulwun

    This would be too predictable if Andre is dead.

  • Bey Martinez

    If Andre dies, I’m not watching anymore. Kingsley needs to be killed.. I don’t care about his storyline! The chick that wants to be co-partner at Empire is a snake… they need to watch her ass! I just need them to win!!! If the show is coming off air….let the Lyons win dammit!!!

  • Erica PlayMiNot Milian

    To make us come back and we probably all was anyway but now we HAVE to.

  • Erica PlayMiNot Milian

    I KNO U FXCKN LYING!

    He better not be the dead one!

  • I can’t wait to next Wednesday I hope Andre doesn’t die I love him and for Kingsley to say that in front of the crowd that Lucius was his father that was while I mean he could have waited to Lucius talk cookie his self but that’s keighley for you because he’s a hater meanwhile I’m still trying to see who that is that’s going to be in the casket I hope it’s not Andre

  • Inipow

    GURL ! YASS. He is a mighty fine specimen. I say break me off a piece of that kit Kat bar ! Please give ME a break lol!
    I dont believe its Dre (yep we close enough for me to call him Dre) . Remember we saw luscious washing blood from his hands . The only way it’s my boo is if you remember season before he was wanting to leave the show because he didn’t feel challenged , but he’s had 2 intense seasons so I can’t see it . That’s probably Kingsley in the box AND we are going to find out that Kingsley is his nephew instead of his son . We are also we still don’t know how Dr Evil (guy cookie met in the bar and who bought their painting ) ties into this. There’s just tew tew much still in the air . I had to get my pressure medicine and some depends , because when the shit hits the fan I want to be calm and dry . Damn near stroked out and peed on myself ! Lol!

  • Inipow

    Yes she did lmbo! LIFE

  • Inipow

    I agree!

  • Inipow

    More so he blaming him for his mother making a choice to be a crack head . Shit I don’t know a drug dealer who would have been that nice , he didn’t clown her for coming to his spot and gave her money to cop lol Gtfoh . Queen Daniels doesn’t know any real dope boys especially the ones at Luscious’s supposed level in the game.

  • Inipow

    Why luv? It’s a thriller

  • Inipow

    I agree it’s one of Queen Daniels plot twist . I applaud the new writers this season !

  • Courtney Wheeler

    wack ending. good episode.

  • Mujer Bonita

    Damn!!! Very intense episode. However, Andre is not going to die. It’s either Kingsley or his mother. They just projected that part to make us believe that it is Andre, but it ain’t him! We are yet to see the part where Lucious is washing blood from his clothes and hands etc, which to me, makes it seem that he killed somebody! Maybe Kingsley’s ass!!!

  • Esther Ijeomah

    I really enjoyed this episode. .Pls l don’t want Andre to die.. love his character.

  • Thandazile Dlamini

    THIS IS SOME BULL SHIT! I’M SO PISSED.

  • Doris G

    I hate when they end a season like this!!!!!!! WOW!!!!!

  • Malia

    Kingsley acting like a dog. He didn’t even make the connection when she came to the door he did not make the connection because he was looking at somebody heating smashed on his front step and his wife in the house he never made the connection he blaming him for something he never knew

  • Lynn

    Great episode

  • Shakendria Murphy

    Andre aint dead lets wait till march lookin ass lol

  • Mademoiselle Goldie✨

    One more minute is a good song

  • Lost Sheep

    I dont think thts Andre in the box, thts the so-called Son, Andre didnt die, tht means a Lyon lost a Battle, Lyons dont lose Battles, at least the real Lyons dont. Tht wimpy Teacup Yorkie aint his Son

  • Shakendria Murphy

    I aint even watch it yet thats what i get for reading for damn comments lmmfao.
