Empire’s “Death Will Have His Day” episode solidified why I love the show. Everything was insane, which is to say that everything was flawless. Here’s the top 10 moments from Empire’s midseason premiere:
Hakeem is a lady’s man so it’s awkward hearing him express his love for Laura. After the youngest Lyon has a sip, or two, he tells Jamal that Laura is special. Hakeem is in love! 9. Thirsty lets Lucious know that he’s down

Thirsty continues to prove that he, not God, is the inspiration behind the “Footprints in the Sand.” The episode begins with Thirsty showing, not telling, Lucious that he is all the way down!
8. Anika visits Rhonda

While we still don’t know #WhoPushedRhonda Anika’s visit felt like a slap in the face. Those red bottoms looked like a pair of shoes Lucious’ former love interest would own.
7. “Yes Hakeem, please.”

Hakeem may be with Yoko and have his first child on the way but his heart belongs to Laura. The beginning of the episode showed a drunk Hakeem acting the fool yet he made things right on his visit to Laura’s house.
