So I Just Watched The “Empire Second Season Finale” And…

tumblr_o71601Psib1u5351mo1_500um….
okay…
so…
i just finished watching the empire second season finale and…

…how wack was that?
i don’t even know what happened.
it was that fast and forgettable.
like,
a whole season of filler and to end like that?

my thoughts:

  • andre’s ass was the star of the show tonight:CiyDtxdWgAE6GMl i think that’s all i was watching this season for.
  • how anti climatic was rhonda storming in and punching boo boo kitty?
    tumblr_o7dw43QXbM1u5351mo1_500…then the music when she bolted in.
    terrible.
  • so they didn’t tie up any loose ends?
    like hakeem getting kidnapped?
    the cuban jackal who was messing with cookie?
    hell,
    how is the dl wolf suddenly working with jamal again?

  • jamal said he won’t sing until the family stops fighting.
    here’s hoping!
  • boo boo kitty is smart for her little master plan,
    but her character is so ruined that i could have cared less.
    it was a brilliant twist but for a ruined character.
    i think we all were like “eh”.
    i wish she would have jumped too.
  • that whole “hakeem” wedding was trash.
    he didn’t even chase her as she stormed out.
    i heard more aggressive “please don’t go” in a disney movie.
  • what was the point of this finale again?
    that was crossing my mind as i was 44 minutes in.
  • i’m soooooooo mad they “walking dead” us with that ending.
    did rhonda die?
    or boo boo kitty?
    tumblr_o7dw2q7Etb1u5351mo1_500how did andre even know to go up there to find them?
    hell,
    how did rhonda since she wasn’t at the wedding?
    the “rhonda” character has been written into a dead end.
    if she ends up dying,
    it’s kinda like:“oh…
    oh ok.
    bye?”

    hell boo boo kitty had no where else to go either.
    i guess they breathed new life into her.

tumblr_o7dw52QVDD1u5351mo1_500all in all,
this second season was terrible.
it was all fluff until the last 2 episodes.
they need to fire every writer and try to start fresh.
this show has lost a lot of momentum since the first season.
it is becoming a shell of it’s former self.
it went from serious dramatics to a bad wayan’s bros spoof.
that being said,
i’ll may keep season 3 on my fall tv agenda.

…Will you?

lowkey: ugh.
well the actors acted their asses off with what was given.
i’ll applaud them for trying to turn shit to sugar each weel.

  1. It ended with a dud .Rhonda obviously was the Lyon who was killed off.It would make no sense to kill off Anika especially since she just married Luscious AND she is carrying Hakeen’s baby.I guess Anika is going to be like Blac Chyna,married into the family and carrying the first heir.I had it halfway correct I thought Luscious would marry Cookie so Cookie didn’t have to testify.

    The writers,they just slap isht together, it made no sense that D Major was back working with Jamaal.I will watch season 3 like I watched this season I DVR the show and fast forward until I see a scene or two worth watching.It takes me less than 10 minutes to watch the show.

  2. Agree with everything you wrote. I really hope this show can get back on track but I don’t know if it can. Its like so much happened this season that I can’t wrap my head around. Killing off characters so fast like Naomi Campbell character they could of kept her longer, but whatever I wanted to see the show go for a long run, but I will watch season 3 only if Jussie is up there.

  3. This season was a mess. The story was all over the place. They really need to improve the script for next season, before the show gets canned. Yo… you’re right about Andre’s (Trai Byers) ass being the star of the show tonight. I would go to sleep on that ass every night lol. They be putting him in tight pants and be having his phatty towards the camera…GOOD tv!!

    1. ^tonight they had that dangerous weapon pointed towards our direction way too much.
      they were trying to distract that bad writing with bunz!
      i’ll admit it blinded me for a quick second,
      but then once it was gone,
      the bad writing and character development took over.

      and then they got the nerve to be making a prequel spinoff.
      ayiii yii yiiiiii

  4. It was just ok to me. You might be picking it apart a little too much. It was just ok and the entire season was all over the place but the last two episodes were good. I think ill still support.

  5. The finale was not bad at all, and of course the show did not get good until the end.

    Can we just have a moment for Andre’s ass for a second? I feel like I should give it a dedication. I had some thoughts, and I don’t even be feeling him like that.

    Cookie was upset because deep down she knows she still has feelings for Luscious, but will not admit it to him.

    I am wondering who went off of the building though? It possibly could have been either. Anika dying would prevent Hakeem from having a baby by a woman he does not even want, and it would also stop her from testifying. As for Rhonda, we know she does not really have any purpose at all.

    1. @The Man,

      I agree that the finale was not bad and this second part of season 2 picked up and was better than the first part. I will be tunning in to Season 3 and I felt bad that Jamal was not killed off because his character and singing has become a nuisance.

    2. Right? Alot of people i know who stopped watching said with these two episodes they felt like the writers have been listening and coming back to what made season 1 so good. I bet they’ll make Ronda survive just to annoy us because they know we don’t care about her. At this point i don’t care about either of them.

    3. “They” meant it when they said ass is the new cleavage! I deny being color struck everywhere but right here, right now! In my dark twisted fantasy, they both fell over, one survives by falling on top of the other!

  6. This season was really bad.It started out with too many celebrity cameos and left a lot of plot lines unresolved.

    I started to write all of my grievances but realized there are just too many. I give up.

  7. @Jamari – yes! Andre’s ass was the highlight for me. Question: how did you manage to make those gifs with such nice quality? I watch episodes through my Hulu account.

  8. I DVR it to keep the ratings up, and watch when I have nothing else to look at. I watched the finale so that I could do the water cooler thing at work. I *really* hope that all those loose ends become fodder for next season.

    No to the half-brother, tho. Eye candy quotient is negative. I just need to see Trey B. put some skin in the game like Boris, Taye, hell Channing Tatum in some movie or Zane episode, LOLOL.

  9. Y’all sure are judgemental, Lol! I’ll be the first to say, 4 episodes in of season 2, I was getting scared, then it kind of picked up after that.

    I thought the season finale was pretty good, I’ve enjoyed the second half of the season. Not as good as the first season, but enough to keep watching.

    I do agree, I think they really messed up Rhonda and Anika’s roles, but maybe some lessons were learned, and they’ll fix it in the third season. The show is still new, they have a lot to learn.

  10. I’m really late to the party, but Dre’s ass is just amazing. He’s so tall, and lean, but has the perfect shape and arch. I was getting hungry watching him. He’s fine AF. and those LIPS! YES!

    As to the rest of the show, *sigh* I’m disappointed too. It’s just so messy and some of the plot becomes so erratic that some of the scenes just don’t feel believable to me, some of it is just random.The actors and talent is great, they need to do less cameos, seriously, and I think they’re working on that, but the talent in general is pretty solid, it’s those horrible writers. They have a plot line with REALLY good bones and potential and they’re not giving the show enough time to marinate and develop. It’s killing me to see this as someone who really does care about plot lines, but they should really spend more time DEVELOPING the story line, creating a flow, so it feels more smoothe, and they need ot go MUCH more slowly with the introduction of new characters, it’s too fast and too many at once.If they were smart they could have held some of their most dramatic scenes for later seasons but they’ve squished all of this nonsense into two seasons. It’s just too much.

    Hakeem’s character has still not grown on me. In fact, I dislike him more and more, that actor isn’t the problem, just the character, UGH and they tarnished that cute latina girl who seemed more authentic and turned her into his little pop whore, and he tried marrying her? LOL! I HATED that whole storyline, that girl was WAY out of his league, and I have NO idea what she saw in him. Was NOT feeling that AT ALL LOL! just made no sense to me idk.

    I’m disappointed with Anika and Rhonda’s characters because they’re both good actresses and I was actually starting to like them both, but they’ve been both neglected by the writers. ugh.., I’ll still watch just because I think Jamal is so friggen cute, love his hair, and character, and the actor himself is just as good as a person, I would love a guy like that. I love the chemistry between Taraji and Terrence, Andre’s ass is hypnotizing and those are the things keeping me into this show. If Jamal’s not there I’m not watching. I just watch for the entertainment value at this point, from that perspective it’s a little more enjoyable

"off topic", trolling, and other nonsense gets sent to my spam folder. other than that, play nice and let's discuss!
