Episode 8 of the intoxicating runaway hit “Empire” took its audience through multiple corkscrews, dealing with a hostile takeover try by Lucious’ old enemy from a rival record company (played by Judd Nelson from New Jack City and Breakfast Club fame), with the held of his wife-to-be Anika.
Son Andre was also dealing with a developing mental illness that’s dominating his life, and he acted out something serious in that elevator with his brothers.
Moreover, the rendition of the 80’s smash hit “Lean on Me” by the family of “Empire” was a hit with the viewers and spawning it’s own trending topic on Twitter.
It made for another thriller of an episode and the audiences put together some hilarious memes. Take a look.
