Spoiler Warning: This piece includes spoilers from Empire Season 2: Episode 9
Before I get into the meat and potatoes of this analysis, can we just acknowledge the epicness that was that kiss between Skye Summers (Alicia Keys) and Jamal Lyon (Jussie Smollett)?! It was the perfect end to their performance of the song “Powerful”. It really took the whole episode into a completely different space, for multiple interesting social reasons that, but it also just felt like the perfect climax to all of the tension in the episode. It was a beautifully executed scene and I drank up every moment of it.
