Wednesday night’s Empire finale arrived with its fair share of cliffhangers. At top of the show, the Internet breathed a deep sigh of relief as the episode, titled "Past Is Prologue," opened with R&B crooner Jamal Lyon returning home in a wheelchair after he was shot in last week's show. Though he appeared physically well, Jamal's spirit appeared broken after his family’s lifestyle turned him and his collaborator, Freda Gatz (played by female MC Bre-Z), into victims. Jamal also swore off music and refused to perform at his brother Hakeem's wedding, which was a short-lived affair.
