Empire Recap: The Fashion Show

"The Unkindest Cut" is a stunner of an episode.

  • S.03
  • Ep.06
  • 'Chimes at Midnight'

A cautionary tale about private email servers and nude photos. 

  • S.01
  • Ep.11/12
  • 'Die But Once/Who I Am'

Empire’s season finale encapsulated the best and worst of what this monster of a show has given audiences these past ten weeks. 

  • S.01
  • Ep.08
  • 'The Lyon’s Roar'

This week's episode is jam-packed with inconsistencies, making it another prime example of how this show can go from intriguing to inept at a moment’s notice. 

  • S.01
  • Ep.07
  • 'Our Dancing Days'

It may take Empire a while to get past its watercooler tawdry-TV beginnings, but this week proves it'll get there eventually.
