Empire - You Broke Love & Tell the Truth - Review

Empire's last season is nothing so spectacular. As I will explain in this review of episodes 3 and 4, the story is repeating itself, and we are not happy with it.

In the first episode, "You Broke Love", Lucious is planning his escape from the Feds, and he is about to finalize it. In the meanwhile, Cookie is being held hostage, stop me if you think you never heard this before, by Damon which places her in a troublesome situation.

Andre is also in the same path we are familiar with: he has been haunted by Kingsley that he can't seem to forget. Tiana receives backlash from fans over a social media post and Becky receives a surprising visit from her family.

In the fourth episode, "Tell the Truth", a family occasion brings the Lyons back together, without Jamal, clearly. His absence is felt. As everyone could foresee, no one seems to get along, especially Lucious and Cookie. Lucious is unhappy with how Empire is going.

Meanwhile, Cookie can not handle anymore all this stress and problems, and she is finally considering seeking help through therapy.
Andre encourages Tiana to get over the controversy she created, but it's not easy as he thought. She is willing to defect.

All in all, these two episodes felt a little bit repetitive. It's such a pity that this final season is not giving a proper swan song to the series. If we go back to the great and juicy storylines we had in the first two seasons, you can understand why the show's ratings are lower and lower. There is nothing left to tell.

And you? What do you think of "You Broke Love" and "Tell the Truth"?

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

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.
