"Sins of the Father," much like past episodes, was a pretty literal interpretation of how things played out.

"Sins of the Father" is as much an adrenaline-filled thrill ride-like any Empire episode-as it is a takedown of the patriarchy, a big middle finger to the powerful men like Lucious who see everyone else's work as secondary to their own.

Is there any redeeming Lucious at this point? Just when you think he can't get any worse, he gets worse.

The soap-opera factor played heavily in tonight's episode, 'Sins of the Father,' creating high drama to build up for next week's two-hour season finale.

After weeks of seesawing between trashiness and earnestness, the show fully embraced its soapy side - and it made things a whole lot more exciting.

"Sins" is focused, well-paced, and suspenseful. It's intricate and deliberate instead of being dense and harried. Many of its scenes rank among the show's best this season.

Empire's final episode before next week's two-part finale - certainly doesn't skimp on the drama.

[The] pull to be altruistic and caring of those around them in their last hours coupled with the more selfish desire to do whatever they hell they want while they still can... [is] one of the few things that Empire and Terrence Howard are doing very well.
