Last week saw tensions come to a head on “Empire,” leading to a strike with the employees. The strike was led by Porsha (Ta’Rhonda Jones), who felt like Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) was overworking the staff. As that was going on, Diana (Phylicia Rashad) continued plotting.
Facing off against a scorned Angelo (Taye Diggs), Lucious (Terrence Howard) has come back at the right time. However, Anika (Grace Gealey) still has custody of Bella. A depressed Hakeem (Bryshere “Yazz” Gray) is going to step up.
