Critic reviews for False Imposition
My main takeaway from last night's Empire is that until that brat Hakeem does right by Cookie, everything he does ought to crumble.
Aside from the great Lucious/Cookie scenes, there was plenty to like this week, as this show just keeps churning out great episode after great episode. It's seriously one of the most entertaining shows out there.
Given the goings on of the first three episodes, Empire was rather sedate this week.
"False Imposition" ends with another fantastic Lucious and Cookie scene... Lucious looks longingly at Cookie as she sashays out of the room. He might not know it, but that emotion's not anything false.
Empire resiliently bounced back after last week's dismal installment... with "False Imposition," an episode that certainly gave us a better understanding of these characters and their motives than have previous episodes.
