"This episode was another knockout to say the least. The pacing slowed a bit, but I am glad it did. It got us to see more character development. This week’s MVP, to me, may have been Andre. He was front and center in this episode. His persistence to rejoin Empire showed a lot about his character but also, to me, made me feel for him more. He’s always the underdog, but the writers put him in front this time even if viewers did not notice it."
