‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Recap ‘Staring At The End’– Student Becomes Teacher

'Grey's Anatomy' Recap 'Staring At The End'– Student Becomes Tea
“I don’t like questions without answers,” Herman (Geena Davis) declares in a voiceover kicking off “Grey’s Anatomy’s” thirteenth episode.

It’s fair to say ambiguity is Herman’s enemy especially when packaged as an inoperable tumor living in her head. But, unlike Arizona who is doggedly trying to find a life-saving cure to preserve her future, Herman’s more interested in creating a lasting legacy.

In doing so, she takes on every in vitro surgical procedure within the Tri-State area to teach Arizona. Except for Bailey’s patient. Given Herman’s limited life span she’s pretty selective about...

'Empire' Recap 'Lyon's Roar' Jamal’s Coming Out Song

February 26th, 2015 11:56am EST
Empire - FOX
The last time the Lyon’s family put on a united front—that wasn’t a publicity stunt---was right before Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) went to prison. Sadly they’re even more divided now that she’s out.

Inspired by her and Lucious’ sexual reunion, Cookie wants to bring the whole family together for a Lyon’s legacy album and accompanying documentary. It will kill two birds with one stone: make Lucious immortal and mend family ties (at least some of them.) Basking in the day after hookup, Lucious (Terrence Howard) agrees. But Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) warns him about seconds.

“You want Cookie’s n...

What Will 'Empire's' Boo Boo Kitty Do?
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Look out Lucious (Terrence Howard) because Anika is that woman. SPOILER ALERT! Last week, Boo Boo Kitty got a front row seat to witnessing Lucious and his ex-wife, Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) having sex in their bedroom. And based on the preview below that isn’t the only secret she’s uncovered.

Anika also knows that Lucious had her daddy commit fraud when he gave him a clean bill of health on an IPO report. Boo Boo Kitty warns that if her daddy is going down so is the Lyon clan.

With two major guilt trips over his head, Lucious is stuck between a rock...

'Grey's Anatomy' Recap: 'The Great Pretenders' Meredith Doesn't Want Derek

February 20th, 2015 10:15am EST
Grey's Anatomy
If you guessed Meredith’s (Ellen Pompeo) mysterious weekend was holed up in a hotel room for much needed alone time…DING, DING, DING!! Tell em’ what they’ve won Jonny.

Enjoyed that? Knew you would. Since we’re giving kudos, I’ll pat my own self on the back for a successful guesstimate. As predicted, Meredith was planning on going to D.C. but got cold feet. Instead of going home she spent three days in an airport hotel, which seemed like epic Mer-time. Come Monday, everyone was convinced she had “emergency sex” with Derek, however one person knew she was pretending.

Meredith is in good c...

'Grey's Anatomy' Preview Clip: 5 Theories On Meredith's Whereabouts

'Grey's Anatomy' Preview Clip: 5 Theories On Meredith's Whereabo
Last time we saw Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) she was trolling the hospital looking for anyone—except “hoodlum” Jo—to pawn her kids off on. So she could go to D.C. and have “emergency sex” with Derek. Judging by “Grey’s Anatomy’s” preview clip below those plans changed somehow.

Maggie, who happily volunteered to babysit, gently tells Meredith she knows she wasn’t with Derek (Patrick Dempsey) because he called her several times asking for her whereabouts. Maggie makes it clear to Mer she’s in a no-judgment zone over the sexy lingerie she packed for the actual “he, she or they” she was going...

‘Empire’ Recap: ‘Our Dancing Days’ Lucious Reveals He's Sick

February 19th, 2015 10:28am EST
Empire - FOX
We were waiting, hoping and yearning for Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) and Lucious’ (Terrence Howard) lips to meet in those tender teases last week. Well, I’m happy to report not only did they kiss, they hooked up. In Lucious’ bed. While Anika spotted them in the doorway.

And that’s only one shocking moment from “Empire’s” seventh episode, “Our Dancing Days.” The ep kicks off with the Lyons’ den (Cookie, Lucious and Vernon) prepping for the company’s investor showcase; Empire is putting their top artists on display to woo deep pocket investors before the much ballyhooed IPO offering.

As the L...

Who Should Takeover 'Empire'?

February 18th, 2015 3:21pm EST
Empire - FOX
It’s nearly the halfway mark (remember “Empire” has only 13 episodes) of the season. So now It’s time to size up the Lyons’ den players we’d love (Cookie! Cookie! Cookie!), and hate (looking at you, Boo Boo Kitty) see ruling Empire records.

Starting with the immediate heirs to the throne; Andre (Trai Byers), Jamal (Jussie Smollet) and Hakeem (Bryshere Y. Gray).

Andre Lyon, Eldest Son (The Suit)

Pros: He knows the business side of Empire records inside and out and that’s beneficial to helping the company go public. The music business is full of sharks and he’s one of them; Andre will bl...

For those doubting “Grey’s Anatomy’s” impact when stacked against its TGIT sister shows, should consider the emotional gut punch of the “All I Could Do Was Cry” episode.

'Empire' Recap: 'Out, Damned Spot' Cookie’s The Odd Wo(man) Out
Ignorance is not necessarily bliss when you’re a part of the Lyons’ family. Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) Vernon (Malik Yoba) and Michael learn that hard lesson in “Out, Damned Spot” and are forced to confront hard truths.

"Empire's" sixth episode kicks off with Cookie getting glamorous, while vintage Lil Kim (“The Jump Off”) blasts in the background. I love this nod to the past that Cookie is still stuck in. (Fun Fact: Taraji P. Henson says Lil Kim is one of the influencers in portraying Cookie.)

It’s no wonder who she’s getting made up for. The red rose that may have unintentionally started...
