I’m going to have to be honest, I wasn’t really into the last season of Empire. While I still believe that is has so much potential, the last season and a half of Empire was so draining. #BlockMeBack But since the season finale had people getting thrown over balconies and drive-bys, I have hope for Season 3 of Empire. For Cookie’s updated fur and hat collection and a possible Becky read, we will give it another shot this season.
HERE ARE 5 THINGS WE NEED FROM EMPIRE SEASON 3:
STOP TRYING TO KILL OFF THE WHITE WOMAN
Fans were almost as shocked in the season two finale, when Anika trying to kill Rhonda, as they were the first time in the winter finale where Anika tried to kill Rhonda. Listen, leave in going to send around a church collection plate for the SAVE RHONDA FUND. We don’t need Anika back in full baby stealing, flight risky way this season. Let’s be honest, Anika is kinda a flop. Let this be the last time Anika tries to push Rhonda off something high.
MORE OF COOKIE AND HER SISTERS
While Cookie is away, her sisters will play. Last season introduced us to Carol (played Tasha Smith) and Candace (played by Vivica Fox). The interesting trio proved that someone can hold their weight against the heavyweight Queen Lyon. We want more interaction with Cookie and her sisters.
MARIAH. CAREY. !
As far as stars go, Empire has had it’s share of familiar faces. But none as iconic as the emotional butterfly herself, MARIAH CAREY. Whether or not we will revisit Carey’s actual acting chops (i.e. Glitter), is unclear. Our souls are ready for Carey to be snatched and hopefully hum us a few bars (on key and without Jamal).
WE GET IT HE’S GAY…WHAT ELSE?
This season needs to refresh and revive Jamal’s character. Despite being a major character, Jamal (played by Jussie Smollett) fell flat last season. It was as if the writers were unsure where to take the character. Last season we saw him questioning his sexuality and fake being a boss, but this season let the reigns loose on Jamal. Let him live a little. Less solos with the guest stars and more boss moves.
MORE PORSHA & BECKY
Arguably the best super-supporting characters on television last year, Porsha (played by Ta’Rhonda Jones) & Becky (played by Gabourey Sidibe) have contributed to many twitter memes and comic relief on the show. Despite their popularity, they have yet to have a story-line that lasted past 1 episode. Give us these ladies this season and let them work. Sidibe is an Oscar nominated actress after all.
ARE Y’ALL READY FOR NEW EMPIRE?
WHAT ARE YOU EXPECTING FROM THIS SEASON?
I don't watch empire. I think it's a poorly written show.
