Empire Season 3 Episode 6 Review: Chimes at Midnight

at . Comments

Can we all agree, a high Jamal is a happy Jamal?

On Empire Season 3 Episode 6, someone has hacked into Empire's personal emails. While Lucious was running around for most of the episode, Cooke had been letting her guard down with Angelo.

Using the Hack - Empire

This show is a mess. The writers need to focus more on the music industry and less on stupid plot points that do nothing for the overall story. What looked to be a promising season, so far has been nothing but disappointment after disappointment. 

The hacker was the biggest mystery of the episode, and I was a little surprised to find out that it was Andre. It just proves that he is Lucious Lyons' son. 

The petty arguments between Hakeem and Andre over Nessa has gotten real old. She should forget both of them and save her energy. No good comes from getting involved with a Lyon. 

Shyne is a definite suspect, but this is way too complicated for his ass and I don't like to put nothing past the FBI cause they love to play dirty.

Lucious

Why is Nessa even getting involved with Andre? His wife just died, and he or his family barely grieved for her. Yes, I'm still annoyed that this show didn't even have a funeral for such a prominent character.

The powers that be missed a golden opportunity for an amazing story for Trai Byers. A story that could have even got him nominated for an Emmy award. 

If you stay with me you're going to lose, because there are somethings about my past or about me period that your opponent can use and will use. Trust me!

Cookie

Empire seems to be falling apart when personal emails are being hacked and songs are being leaked. I didn't buy this story for one second. It's a real thing that can happen, but at the same time the way every thing played out it was too over-the-top.

Andre set up Gram to take the fall and it wasn't hard to do as Tiana set up a very convincing story that Lucious fed into. I thought that Gram was the culprit throughout the episode, but this is Empire, and they do love the OMG moments.

I want to root for Cookie and Angelo so bad, but every time he tries to get close to her she pushes him away.

When she said out loud that she loved Angelo I truly felt that was Cookie letting her guard down. For so long she has built this wall emotionally that no one has been able to break.

Yes, you go take it all off. I Love you Angelo.

Cookie

I love that even though she broke up with him he isn't giving up without a fight. Cookie better stop playing games with Angelo because he sure won't put up with it for much longer.

I mean really Cookie get your head together, this man stripped down to his pants for you on live television?

There is a serious dark cloud hanging over Jamal. I have officially stopped caring about his character all together. The shooting happened in Empire Season 2, and he is still using pain medication to cope with reality.

I get that some people cope differently than others, but when you abuse drugs it becomes more of a problem than a coping mechanism.

Derek, who I thought cared for him, was only harming Jamal by allowing him to take the pills. Jamal needs to wake up and face the music. Until he does that no amount of drugs are going to help him through his problems.

Shyne: I guess what they say is true. The camera does add ten pounds.
Cookie: Well then what is your excuse fat ass?

I feel like a broken record, but Hakeem needs to go far away and never return. He is all over Nessa during their duet. Clearly she's not into him, but that doesn't stop him from believing that she wants to be with him.

Hakeem has a plethora of responsibilities especially when it comes to being a new father. The last thing that he should be worrying about is a new girl, and how he can wife her up.

Becky is out for revenge when it comes to Xavier and I for one, don't blame her. She has done nothing but try to help further Tiana's career, and he is taking all the credit for it.

He promised her that he would say that it was her idea to drop Starlight as Tiana's lead single, but he played her by actually making her think she was important.

Other thoughts and Questions:

  • Who is Phillip, and could he be Jamal's savior?
  • Where is Grandma Lyon?
  • Less Anika is a good thing, agree or disagree?
  • The music used to play such a big role in this show. Do you think the show needs to focus more on the music industry and less on the Lyon's personal life, agree or disagree?
  • What do you guys make of the email Andre sent to Lucious that Tariq discovered, Discuss?

Are you guys frustrated with the way the writers are taking this season? What is next for the Lyon family? Remember you can watch Empire online via TV Fanatic if you missed the episode, or if you want to watch it again.
