Cookie took it from the back and offer $0 to buy Empire stating that the Lyons make up Empire and no justifiable reason for paying a dine. The board didn’t give a hoot about this and they are not going down with the Lyons. Lo and behold, Empire got sold off for $700 million.
Tory Ash got rushed to the hospital by Jamal Lyon after a drug overdose and she eventually gave up the ghost. This became too heavy for Jamal and he had to abandon the unknown band ambition to travel out of the city.
Andre Lyon was able to penetrate the new CEO of Empire, Anika Calhoun and he posed with the intention to resolve their discord. Andre got her poisoned with some drug that induces hallucination. This led to a final blow and it was the end of the road for Anika.
Two lives certainly lost in the season 4 finale of Empire. Also, the end was another tragic we couldn’t behold. Blake’s father showed up with a barrel and shot at his son several times. However, what we don’t know are the numbers of casualties as Hakeem and Tiana were right at close range during the shooting.
