Empire Season 3 Episode 18 – ‘Toil and Trouble Part 2’

On the season finale, the old flame between Lucious and Cookie start to show signs of being reignited following his fall-out with Juliana. Meanwhile, Anika is forced to face a tough reality after being snatched up by the law, and the quest for baby Bella intensifies as Hakeem sets out for revenge.

  • CYPRESS GOLDEN BRONZE

    Great show!

  • Sarahspeaks

    Well that was an anti climax couldn’t wait for that episode and it turned out to be some ott bs. I said last week Luscious was gonna drop that Juliana so that was no shocker.

  • freddie blackburn

    duh……….

  • Stephanie

    I’ve been saying the same thing! Whenever Jamal performs now, I roll my eyes in annoyance. Smdh! LOL!

  • Ariel

    I’m really here just trying to figure out what Hakeem agreed to do to have access to Bella πŸ’­πŸ€”
    He’s straight lying to his family talking about Bella is at Anika parents house. I wonder what’s gonna happen to Bella and how will Hakeem keep this going now that Anika is arrested

  • Ariel

    Haha! I totally got the Smokey Robinson vibe too

  • Ariel

    Like this so dumb! Couldn’t they have thought of something different? πŸ™„ I really hope that’s not the story next season.

  • Sali

    That nurse is so strange

  • Branden Gee

    Im sure he’ll have it for the entire next season or something

  • Messy Matt

    LMAO

  • HardFacts

    Yes!!!!

  • Branden Gee

    It comes back in the Fall for season 4

  • Messy Matt

    lmao pretty much

  • Messy Matt

    LMAO

  • Inipow

    True true Thirsty is a thoroughbred completely about the bizness!

  • Pebbles

    Thirsty may already be on it…

  • Pebbles

    I know! With lucious it’s like is this part of a bigger plan? Did he recognize the people house but will use this accident to fake amenesia to get more infoπŸ€” With lucious you never know if it’s real or fake..

    But best believe his mommy got him covered

  • ThisIsGarnet

    So is that nurse gonna try to take empire from the family next season? πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„

  • iPresident_Parker

    When luscious fired Thirsty I knew he was playing Nia Long. Thirsty is the truth lol.

  • Binedra

    Yeah, I feel the same way too.

  • Brenda Williams

    I love Empire, and everything about it. They have the best music and story lines. I love the way they have incorporated real artist and top shelf actors like Leslie Uggams, and Phylicia Rashad. I also look forward to the guest actors like Eva Longoria and Nia Long. Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson have the best on screen chemistry, and their tortured love story makes the show that much better. It’s messy, but life is messy so that’s why it so relatable to the viewers. I love it when I hear grown men discussing Empire, and how they won’t miss an episode. Lee Daniels reaps the rewards of another hit!

  • 9Ether

    frfr LOL

  • Pebbles

    I know!! With lucious you don’t know if he really forgot or it’s part if his plan…

    Look st grandma.. they think she crazy but she be on ” point” on what she do … she the real gangsta if you ask me..

  • 2f7y

    Ohhhhhhhh wtf woooow I totally miss that whole thing damn that went over my head that was the murder weapon sheesh she played that well..damn she got her

  • Truthteller20423

    Telenovela aka bad soap opera!

  • Tabby

  • MZslimthick

    CTFU πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚very I just smh and keep scrolling

  • Lacy4u

    Anika’s mother-in-law suggested she use the letter opener so she wouldn’t tear her mail that ‘looked important’. Unfortunately, Anika didn’t realize that was the murder weapon that her mother-in-law had used to kill Tariq with. Once Anika used it, her fingerprints were all over it. Afterwards, her mother-in-law apparently called the police & reported Anika as the killer.

  • preshtrem

    But remember lucious has now forgotten that’s anika’s house or who she even is

  • Victoria M.

    They said she was under arrest for killing Tariq. The mom set her up.

  • Talone

    Damn I wonder if Boo Boo Kitty got locked up for killing Rhonda or iif she was set up by the mom who killed Tariq. The mom aint shit for what she did to Tariq lol

  • Y’all got me in tears. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­πŸ˜‚

  • Kay

    High pitched annoying πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  • Kay

    Lmao Ikr, why is he always singing in a high pitched octave?! Like boy, sing normal sometimes!

  • Kay

    OMG, I thought I was the only one over his singing scenes. The boy been singing in every single episode since season 1. His voice is even annoying now cause we hear it in every episode! πŸ˜…

  • Kay

    I love Luscious and Cookie together 😍. I hollered when Luscious told Nia Long to kick rocks. Yessssssssss! πŸ™ŒπŸΎ

  • Kay

    I would love to watch just one episode where Jamal doesn’t sing. I swear he has sang in every single episode since season 1. His voice is even irritating now. Too much of a good things gets annoying πŸ˜‘

  • Lacy4u

    Did I direct it to you personally? No, I didn’t. If you spelled his name correctly then why are you responding to my post? Check out some of the previous posts & there you will find the misspelling of his name. You’re welcome.

  • Akire

    I spelled it correctly and I am quite aware that Lucious and Luscious are spelled differently thank you very much.

  • Pebbles

    I know! I just want Hakeem just show some maturity instead of throwing tantrums all over the place.

  • Sublime Exquisite

    In my opinion that was the best revenge of the show besides Lucious using Juliana.

  • Sublime Exquisite

    I was thinking the same thing once he got her. Why didnt he gun it?

  • Tia Jackson

    πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  • Inipow

    He should have called thirsty!

  • Inipow

    Lol he is a kid he just turned 21. He is also a boy so he about 17 mind wise. I was thinking the same thing when he asked whose house is this . That might be the amnesia angle , playing chess when they playing checkers.

  • Inipow

    Why though?

  • Inipow

    My best guess to date is Juliana came into play . Knocked her back down the totem pole and she felt some kind of way.

  • Inipow

    I know I was with Cookie, like really bitch you just gonna do this right in my face .Pulling some damn Iyanla rubbing on another woman’s man and calling it therapy. So if cookie stab this hoe can she call it acupuncture. Im sure a ass beating would be healing for cookies mind body and soul. Since these hoes wanna play all day Cookie be recess on that Martian ET looking father fucker.

  • Inipow

    Thanks luv

  • Roseli dos Santos AraΓΊjo

    I’m still watching it but Empire was good till second season.

  • You’re welcome! πŸ˜‰

    This little season finale was petty.. I was calling out all the predictable things ..

  • Akire

    That damn Lee Daniels now we gotta wait. It’s too much. Bella, those twins, Lucious it’s just too many questions I just can’t lol.

  • Mz DiDi

    That would make a lot of sense. Great analogy.

  • Mz DiDi

    I said that all along…He reminded her when she popped up at the EMPIRE, how she stole $10M from him and then all of a sudden they’re in business and a relationship. Lucious played that ass and got $10M plus.

    And his mother would tear Madame DuBois to shreds…Mama Lyon is ABOUT THAT LIFE!!!

  • Mz DiDi

    Yes she is, but she knows how to GET at you!!! A conservative street smart woman fo’ sho’!

  • Mz DiDi

    AND YOU SAID THAT!!!

  • Mz DiDi

    Okay…keep my hands to myself, better yet, I’m not going to your house, job, geting in your car…NONE OF THAT!!!

  • Mz DiDi

    I know right…

  • Mz DiDi

    You are too funny…LOL

  • Lacy4u

    Please pay attention to how you spell the name of the character that Terrence Howard plays on this show. It’s Lucious, not Luscious. Luscious is a male entertainer (stripper) from Cleveland that moved to the ATL.

  • Lacy4u

    I thought the show was about to end with the Lucious lying on the ground after the car blew up. I think that would’ve been a better cliffhanger instead of showing him 3 mos later with amnesia. imho

  • Lacy4u

    Ok, so first Lee Daniels has Rumer Willis on this show as a drugged out singer. Now, her mom, Demi Moore is Lucious nurse. Is Rumer’s dad Bruce Willis going to make an appearance next? LOL

  • mzbestseller

    LORRRRRRRRRRRRRT!!! Mama Lyons ain’t no joke! I’ve loved that woman since she came on the scene. She knows something is up with Anika and Tyrik and that’s why she got them both. I used to love me some Clair Huxtable but huntyy she got me pissed! I had a feeling Luscious was gonna do that to Juliana ole messy behind. He’s too smart for that. This is why I don’t think he really has amnesia. I could be wrong but I still don’t trust him even though I want him to be the husband and father he should be. Singing to Cookie sounding like an old Smokey Robinson πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  • πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ OFF – Key Annoying 😩

  • mzbestseller

    Babyyyyy I was TOO HYPE!!!!!

  • mirra.k

    Thanks boo and I watch power lol I’m safeπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  • Ulrich Pansa

    some of y’all dumb as hell….

  • πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    Trust me you are good.. and honestly you didn’t miss much; but a LONG ASS mid-season hiatus / break lol …

    I’m sure you can catch up on the whole season from the last two episodes ..

    You should be more concerned about “Power” — now if you have not already; take this time to catch up on “Power”…

  • mirra.k

    I stop watching this show second season..I know I know don’t stone me ladies I’m sorryπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ just tell me a brief summary of what’s going on I know they kidnapped Hakeem baby…πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  • Shianna Fraser

    OH MY GOD LOL I thought I was the only one πŸ˜‚ like get to the action less singing please!

  • Petty_Paula

    He sounds like a baby goat 🐐

  • Pebbles

    a big possibility, but we will never know with Tariq he gone on to yonder ( as the elders says)

  • Pebbles

    I think the plan was to get away with Bella

  • wuzzy

    Me too….

  • wuzzy

    Annoying af

  • Inipow

    My first reaction is …THATS SOME BULLSHIT!. Now I must sleep and watch this shit again . Lee Daniels need his ass kicked . What in the cliffhangers , my nerves are wrecked. I don’t know how I’m gonna make it to next season .Take my hand lort!

  • J World✨

    😩😩😩😩 lawdddd I think he’ll start to regain his memory in next season, got to. After allll Lusious has done I was still so happy to see him work it out with cookie lol can’t wait for next season!

  • Papibobbybrown

    I swear to GOD that’s why I don’t touch shit!

    I’m so weary about putting my fingers on shit specifically for that reason. Specially anything that could be considered a weapon or when I’m at someone’s house I’m not familiar with. People think I’m weird but there’s crazy people really out there like Luscious momma. That will frame that ass in the blink of a eye & UEONO!

  • Ancient Wisdom

    “This club, my money, the fruits of my labor are all for the woman I love. So Julianna you got to kick rocks. Security!” Face Broken! Scene!

  • Santana

    Yassss chileeeeee yassss!!!

  • Santana

    Mannnnn if this nigga lose his memory like Letti from Fast and furious and don’t bounce the fuck back I.AM.DONE!!!! Damn you Lee Daniels!!!!!!!!!

  • 9Ether

    Am I the only one that skips Jamal’s singing scenes?

  • agreed

  • ThisIsGarnet

    I stopped at the 17 min mark for now. All Ima say is Hakeem know he could’ve ran tf out with Bella & called Lucious πŸ€”

  • not low key annoying.. HIGH key annoying

  • Kettie Ladii

    Lawwwwwddd why did it end like that I can’t wait until next season

  • MyOpinion

    That part I don’t understand.

  • Well help me then πŸ˜‚

    I don’t get Anika’s motive to be involved with the social services thing and the adoption. Lucious was gonna pay and divorce her anyway.

  • Trice

    I hate his voice

  • Trice

    The typical amnesia ….o lord ..good finale though

  • Ancient Wisdom

    As I was reading over my own comment after reading several others, it came to me that maybe Tyriq and Anika conspired together with the Dubois’s to get her baby away from the Lyon family. Perhaps that’s why the mother did what she did to Tyriq and what she did to Anika.

  • Shakendria Murphy

    TERRELL MF CATER!!!! LAWD JESUS GOT DAMN THAT MAN!!!!

  • Ancient Wisdom

    Like mother like son!

  • Pebbles

    HAkeem gets on my nerves ,this over emotional don’t think things through , tantrum throwing little boy is getting on my nerves , I hope he mature soon.

  • Pebbles

    At first I was like why she did she do that to Anika , but I see Anika was with the whole thing with Bella ….πŸ–πŸΌ High five grand ma.

    They think she crazy shhhhht. Grand ma got good sense.

  • His weight loss is poppin! Looking like the Best Man Holiday lol

  • MyOpinion

    Omg I feel like I’m psychic everything I assumed was correct so far.

  • Ancient Wisdom

    Naw Charlette’s Web, Andre isn’t extorting you, he’s exploiting Becky’s obsession with Mandingo! In the words of Cookie Lyon, bye Bitch!

  • Jamal’s singing is low key annoying πŸ˜©πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ

    And I peep Tyler Perry threw Lee Daniels some snacks for the show lol

    Fine chocolate man from all of the Madea Plays 😍

  • Ancient Wisdom

    It’s your soon-to-be ex-mother-in-law. I want you to come get your things boo-boo. I don’t want to be reminded of your existence! Boom!
