Empire - The Fool - Review

Empire has finally surprised me. The Fool is a solid and complex episode that I really enjoyed. There is still much potential in these characters and in these stories, but the writers tend to waste it with filler episodes and useless storylines. 

Let’s summarize what happened in this episode. Lucious is still struggling with his memory loss and Claudia is trying to understand how his brain is dealing with memories that are reappearing. Journalists are trying to find out the truth about this situation and Cookie decides to share a day inside Empire with them. Lucious has to pretend to remember everything and he does so convincingly. I really enjoyed how they chose Veronica as the singer that Lucious has to guide: Veronica was also the first character we met during the pilot. It was a nice connection with Empire’s history. Hakeem is still struggling to get Bella’s custody and he almost leaves for Cuba, but Cookie convinces him to stay.

The stronger part of the episode was centered on Lucious synesthesia process. He starts painting and he begins to remember some of the most important past events and mostly he cannot forget about Cookie. She is his muse. 

The last minutes of the episode are focused on this recognition and for Claudia is over. She is fired by the Lyon’s patriarch who is finally fully aware of his past. We didn’t get to see Jamal, but I guess his boyfriend will betray the Dubois for him.

In The Fool didn’t happen much, but overall the episode felt relevant and powerful.  The acting was spot-on and I also enjoyed the cinematography along with the music. It felt visually gripping. Lucious’s storyline wasn’t dragged on so much and they dealt with it properly. Now I don’t want to wait a whole season for Cookie and Lucious’s reunion. I am eager to watch what will happen next. 

And you? What do you think of “The Fool”?

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
