Empire (2015) s04e08 Episode Script

Cupid Painted Blind

1 Previously on Empire I may lose Bella because - you were too weak to fight for her.
- That's not fair.
I deserve better.
So when you start looking for me, don't.
I planted that gun to make the shoot look justified.
Now you know something about me that could put me in a cell for the rest of my life.
I think it's time.
Time for what? Time for you to meet my family.
This is Simon Lambert.
He's a medicating psychiatrist.
No matter what happens from here on out, I need you to know that this is real.
- I love you.
- Wait, Warren, why are you here? His job was to make you fall in love with him.
Jamal, listen to me, I was just - You bitch! - (GRUNTING) Yeah, a'ight, my love.
Thank you very much, a'ight.
So, we have assault.
Battery.
Disturbing the peace.
Destruction of private property.
And fleeing the scene of the crime.
Oh, he didn't flee the scene of no crime.
He just stomped a traitor's ass and then stepped over the remnants.
Ain't that right, boo? THIRSTY: Yeah.
(CHUCKLES) I agree.
But, uh, there's a warrant out for Jamal's arrest.
Now, I got them to agree to let him turn himself in tonight.
That gives us about ten hours to make all this go bye-bye.
How are we gonna make that happen? We, uh, we-we find Warren.
Get him to say he threw the first punch, not Jamal.
That way, at least three of the charges go away, and I can ghost the rest.
But.
I hear a "but.
" Spit it out.
No, it's not a "but.
" It's a Diana Dubois.
She's got her nephew on lock.
Now, we know this family loves to play hide-and-seek.
They hide, we seek.
And he can be anywhere.
Yeah, well, I'll find him.
And I'm-a finish what you started, 'cause anybody that knows me knows I will kill a bitch even if she breathes on you wrong.
- You know that.
- I know.
We good.
Okay, I'm-I'm-a make you something to eat.
You look a little flush.
LUCIOUS: Well, thank you, Thirst.
(ELEVATOR BELL DINGS) - What's up, Dad? - Hey, fellas.
Sit down.
What So y'all just What is this? - Ma.
- What? Yo, can y'all just, like, please stop all of this? Mom, I know what you're doing over there.
What, boy? I'm looking for something for you to eat.
No, there's no pills in the cereal, - there's no booze in the cabinet - Better not be.
or nothing.
If ya'll think somehow I'm, I'm-a fall off the wagon or jump off some damn balcony, then you're wrong.
So the whole intervention stuff can stop right now.
Wait, this is what this is about? I'm out of here.
- Uh-uh.
- LUCIOUS: Sit back down.
When a family is in crisis, they come together.
ANDRE: What's this all about? This is about you, Andre.
(SHORT CHUCKLE) Me? Yes, we know what that bitch Diana Dubois is up to.
She trying to get to my babies one by one, and you are next, Dre.
(WARREN GROANS) Oh.
Morning, Glory.
(LAUGHS) I got to say I always thought that Jamal Lyon had it in him to do you like that.
But what I underestimated was your weak ass not fighting back.
It hurts, don't it? Where am I? Don't you sweat.
You're safe.
Mother had Dr.
Mella prescribe you some goodies.
Made sure you stayed sleepy.
Apparently they're working.
Did all that hurt? - What about Jamal? - (CHUCKLES): Well he's in jail, probably.
Or he will be soon enough.
Well, I got to get out of here.
Things to do, people to see.
Mother wanted me to keep an eye on you.
I'll tell her that you are in good spirits.
Sven's here to make sure you're all safe and sound, just in case the Lyons come over and try and kill you.
So, uh, I'll see you around, clown.
- She ruined me.
- She ruined you? No, no, no, no, no.
You ruined you.
You played yourself.
But no worries.
Mother wouldn't be the Diana Dubois she is if she didn't stand by her word, so we'll take care of your father.
And who knows maybe after all is said and done, you can go back to California.
Start your life back up again.
See, I told you.
I told you what would happen if you fell for a Lyon.
And now here you are.
Okay.
Sven.
So is there anything different going on in your life something strange, anything, uh, suspicious.
I don't know what you want me to say, Ma, okay? You can make these two go over their stories all day, nothing like that's happened to me.
I don't have a baby to snatch, I don't have - a boyfriend to beat in public - Why you got to say - stuff like that? - Yo, why would you say that? - Okay, all right, -j-just - I'm sorry, I'm-I'm sorry, okay? Look, I'm not unsympathetic.
I'm just saying that there's no pattern here, okay? I-I don't see how Diana can get to me.
Well, have you met anyone new that you ain't told us about? I meet new people all the Look, I got a new tailor, okay? There's a new barista Don't get smart, boy I beat your ass.
You know your mom's not talking about that.
This woman she does have a pattern, because she tries to go to your heart and bypass your brain.
Now, think.
Has anyone tried to come at you through your heart? COOKIE: Listen to your father, boy.
He actually is making sense.
There's no one like that.
Yeah, I don't know how many times I can say it.
But you did say there was a new girl.
- Yes.
- That was nothing, Pop.
It was nothing.
I don't know how many times I need to hear it.
Yo, I'm out.
You gonna learn the hard way.
And don't be hitting people - in the street like Jamal did.
- Yo, straight up, you could take your little bitch ass to Cuba right now.
Hey, you sit your little narrow ass down.
Ain't nobody finish.
I'm not done here.
- Well, I am done.
- I'm not.
Yeah, well, look, I'm fine, okay? Ma, Pop, I'm perfectly fine, okay? And it's clear that Jamal wants to be left alone.
- What? - I'm going back to work.
- You going to Empire? - Yes, sir.
COOKIE: Oh, that's great.
Three stupid, dumb-ass, blind mice.
Sorry about Warren, Jamal.
JAMAL: You still watch your back, though.
So should I catch the elevator for y'all? LUCIOUS: Come on.
Let's give him some peace.
You better be glad I got an important text.
You don't put your mother out.
Thank you.
- I think it's time.
- No, no, no, no.
You got six more weeks.
We just got to get you to a doctor.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
- I just can't tell her father yet.
- Shh.
- (GROANS) Mm-mmm, mm-mmm.
- Come on, come on, come on.
Just keep walking.
Uh-uh.
Uh-uh.
I'm gonna need you to stop saying "father," okay? I know it's Burleson.
Look, I am scared out of my mind, all right? And you had three of these, so I just need to know that it's gonna be okay.
(SIGHS) (EXHALES) Shh, shh, shh, shh, shh.
Come on.
Oh Here.
Look at this.
That's my firstborn.
He was born 15 years ago.
I'm still scared, girl.
(LAUGHS) Look, ain't nothing in this world gonna bring you more joy and more pain than having a child.
Well, damn, Cookie, you for a whole bunch of pep talk.
- Oh.
Oh! - Shh, shh.
- (PANTING) - C.
O.
! - C.
O.
! - It hurts.
- (LAUGHING) - Ooh! - It's a girl.
- (ALL COOING) Hush.
Now, this a favor.
You get caught, and it's my ass.
Ten minutes.
Oh Oh, look at that little peanut.
Oh, she just as cute as a little button.
She's so pretty.
Oh.
You talk to your sister? Yeah.
She gonna take her.
You know, until I get out, which is gonna be a couple of years.
She won't have to know about nothing not this place - or her father.
- COOKIE: Yeah, that's right.
(SIGHS) What? - What? - (CRYING): I'm sorry COOKIE: Oh - I don't know if I can give her up.
- Oh.
- Oh, I know.
- Cookie, this feeling.
I feel like - I would do anything for you.
- Mm-hmm.
- I feel like I would kill for her.
- Yeah.
You know? Like, if anybody laid - a hand on her beautiful, precious head - Yeah.
- No, that's right.
- COOKIE: know that feeling.
- Anyone.
- Yes.
- I know that.
- Isn't this crazy? Oh, look at her.
Thank y'all.
Oh, there COOKIE: Mmm, little precious.
Yes I don't why you so ready to leave.
You know that bitch Diana ain't done with us.
- I know that.
- Okay, well, if you know that, know this: Don't I-I don't need the-the Kumbaya Dwight, okay? I need my fighter Lucious back.
And if you're not in there, then go paint a symphony somewhere.
Let me avenge this family.
Wait, wait, wait, wait, why would you say that to me? Don't you see I'm doing everything in my power to be the man that you need me to be right now? You may not see it clearly, but I swear to you, Lucious is here, watching over you, watching over our family.
And what I do see is Andre is not being honest with us.
He's keeping something from us.
And until we can figure out what that is, we can't help him or the rest of our family.
Okay, well, is there a solution in this speech, Spartacus? Divide and conquer.
You take care of Jamal.
He's not out of the woods yet, but you got him.
Let me take care of Andre and this Dubois stuff.
You better.
(SCOFFS) DIANA: So, the next thing you need you need to do is schedule my photo shoot for the Captain's Ball promo.
You need to schedule two appointments one for each of your faces.
I suggest that you stay back.
(SCOFFS) I'm just here to return a gift your family gave to my family.
Knowing your penchant for street justice, these gentlemen are prepared to haul you off to jail or throw you in traffic.
Now, how big a scene do you wish to make? Well, you didn't need all this manpower, child.
I just wanted to return this.
Angelo said it belonged to his grandmother, so I was supposed to send it back, but I guess I forgot.
And I know how important family is to you, so Throw your men out in the street for that, bitch.
Move! Get that ring.
Now.
- Oh - (HONKING) (DRIVER SCREAMS) Oh.
(HORNS HONKING) - (HORN HONKING) - Got it.
Ooh, it took everything inside of me not to whoop her ass.
- I hope you got the pictures.
- Hell, yeah, I got the shots.
I got the shot.
I'll get back to you.
Okay.
Get a dog? Good looking out.
Hey, split the difference on that kick.
Turn her up two DB.
All right.
I ain't shy-y-y-y Perfect.
Move it double ti-i-i-ime You tryin' hold me ti-i-i-ight But I'm-a fly high Like Superman, you heard right Let me rock, babe You can't make me stop, babe Fire like a bang bang Ho Let me rock, babe You go do your own thing Don't worry 'bout nothing Ho Let me rock, babe Time to pump the brakes, babe Ain't nobody's baby Ho Let me rock, babe You can't make me stop, babe Fire like a bang bang Ho Let me ro-o-o-o-ock Let me ro-o-o-o-o-ock Let me ro-o-o-o-o-ock Let me rock, rock, rock, rock, rock Trying to hold me Do-o-o-own What's all this about? Why she with you? This my man Caliban's beat.
Tiana in here throwing some flame to it.
It's dope, right? What's that got to do with me? (SHINE SIGHS) I got five albums to do for 20 For 20.
I got a Empire artist on each one.
- I want you to do one, too.
- (LAUGHS) And I figured your girl could help - talk you into it.
- Number one, she ain't my girl.
Number two, I got better things to do than lay hooks for off-brand rappers.
And number three, you should put some Auto-Tune on all that mess.
I am so sick and tired of your spoiled and entitled ass! You know what, you should go be back with your baby mama with your clown ass.
- You see what she did? - (DOOR SLAMS) Well, I heard what you said.
Uh Forget her, man! Screw you! I ain't never gonna be with anybody.
This life ruins everything.
(SIGHS) Hakeem, listen, man.
I'm not your father.
But it seems like you need some guidance on how to handle all this.
I'll tell you what, come take a ride with me.
Come on.
What's all this? Uh, this is the little project for Cookie.
You know, with the whole Jamal situation.
Come to find out I got a friend in the security company that Diana employs.
Now, they tell me she has five guards assigned to her.
These four, they with her all day.
See? So I looked for the fifth man, who's MIA this dude.
Sven Svarsqaard Smorgasbord I mean, you know, something N-Norwegian.
Whatever.
He's on the clock, but he's not with Diana.
He's with Warren.
Bingo.
So, I, you know get the dispatcher to give me his location: a hotel in Midtown.
Nice work.
- I aim to please.
- So you going? Well, that's what I suggested, but you know Cookie.
"I don't need your help, Thirsty.
I did 17 years.
" - So I got to get her the address now.
- Okay, good.
Well, when you're done, I've got something I need you to do for me.
Say the word.
(SIREN WAILS IN DISTANCE) Are you working for Diana Dubois? - Who? - Did she pay you to get close to me? Maybe give you an extra bonus for tearing my heart out like-like Warren did Jamal? - Like Anika did Hakeem? - PAMELA: Sit down.
People are beginning to stare.
Now, what are you going on about? Someone's after my family.
Someone's always after your family.
Yeah, but this is different.
This is different, okay? The Dubois are coming at me and my brothers one by one, through people pretending to care about us.
Who worm their way in under our defenses, who get inside.
People who make us want 'em, people who make us need 'em.
And that's supposed to be me? - You tell me.
- Okay, Andre.
Tell me, was I also supposed to open my heart up to you? Tell you the most sickening, damning things about myself that could send me to prison, so I could trap you? You better leave the detective work to me, 'cause you suck at it.
I really thought we had something.
We do have something, okay? We do have something.
- Pamela, please.
I'm sorry.
- Andre.
Get off of me.
Come on, I'm sorry.
Come on, Pamela, I-I'm sorry! I'm sorry! Damn it! - I'm sorry.
- (PHONE BUTTONS BEEPING) I'm sorry.
Yeah, Lucious.
Meet me over here in Bryant Park.
I got Andre over here.
Yeah.
Yeah, something's up.
THIRSTY: Right over here.
Pop? What are you? Uh, how-how'd you know I was here? You mind if I sit down? Please.
Son, is everything okay? With me? Yeah, I'm (LAUGHS) Of course.
I'm just, I'm-I'm having a-a coffee before I THIRSTY: Don't do that, boss man.
I saw you.
Hell, the whole place saw you flippin' out.
Why don't you mind your business, Thirsty? LUCIOUS: Thirsty told me that you were yelling at someone.
I'm seeing someone.
Kind, understanding, and beautiful a woman.
Her name is Pamela Rose.
- Why didn't you just tell us about her? - 'Cause she's a cop.
You don't have to worry, though.
It's over.
You know why? Because I just accused her of being some kind of double agent who somehow finds the time to moonlight for Diana Dubois.
You know, as wrong as we were for each other, I was gonna bring her to meet you.
Because she meant that much to me.
I-I didn't think I-I could feel that again, you know, after after Rhonda.
(SIGHS) See y'all later.
Andre! I wanna find out everything there is to know - about this Detective Pamela - Pamela Rose.
I'm on it.
Oh, yeah And you must be the plug 'Cause I can't get enough Oh, no WARREN: I can't get enough, man - JAMAL (ON TAPE): Ugh.
- WARREN (ON TAPE): Enough of you.
JAMAL: Don't ever say that again.
WARREN: I can't get enough.
JAMAL: Don't ever say it again.
You sound like a damn creep.
(PANTING) Man Too broke to pay attention Main man, yeah - Man listen, man listen - Shh - All I got is this ambition - That's it HAKEEM: Why the hell we out here? SHINE: Come on, man, relax, youngbo.
We're here.
They dropped the ball and so I ran with it I'm like-man listen, man listen Oh.
What's up, man? Daddy! Hey, hey! What's up, man? Come here.
Come here.
Hey.
Oh.
Get 'em.
Let's get 'em.
What's wrong? Oh, you want the ball? Oh, come here.
Look, I got a surprise for you.
Come on.
Inside, you still hear the engine, like "wren, wren" Yeah, look.
Look at that.
Ball.
Hey.
Look what I got.
Everybody get one.
(GRUNTS) Everybody get one, look.
Wow.
(SIGHS) Hakeem, - this is my family.
- Damn, man, you got busy.
(LAUGHS) Yeah, those are their mothers.
At least two of 'em.
The other one's in California - visiting her pops.
- (CHILD CRYING) Aw, come here.
Let me come here.
Come here, come here, come here.
It's all good.
- (HAKEEM LAUGHS) - All good.
All good.
Look.
- Look who's here.
- Man, - what are you, Muslim or something? - Nah.
I got three sets of kids with three different women.
But absolutely no drama.
Remember that last sentence, 'cause it's almost unheard of.
Go play.
Man, I didn't even know you had kids.
Exactly.
Don't got people out here putting my business in the street.
So you 21, chances are you not done having a few of these yourself.
(LAUGHS) But you can be done with the drama.
You know the difference between them and the girls you mess with? - What? - For one, I don't mess where I eat.
None of my exes are involved in the music industry, or any other business I'm involved in.
But the connection me and Tiana got I never found before.
Connections fail.
Relationships die, except the ones by blood.
Which brings me to my second point.
Never let nobody get between you and your kid, Hakeem.
Nobody.
No lawyer, no baby mama, no drama.
Your babies come first, your family follows.
You tattoo that on the inside of your eyelids, Hakeem, then you can see it how I see it.
Man listen, all I got - Is this ambition - Ya dig? My man.
A couple million make you stand different All right, who wants pizza? JAMAL (ON RECORDING): I don't know.
WARREN: I can't get enough, baby.
- JAMAL: Ugh.
(LAUGHS) - WARREN: Enough of you.
- JAMAL: Don't ever say that again.
- I can't get enough.
JAMAL: Don't ever say it again.
You sound like a damn creep.
WARREN: Oh, you don't like my moves? What? I put a little Luther Vandross, a little Barry White in there.
What's wrong with that? - No, no.
- What? They-they liked it even if you didn't.
JAMAL: Luther and Barry would be clowning your corny ass way from up there.
You've wounded me to the core.
I love you.
I love you more.
(SIGHS ON TAPE) WARREN: Mmm.
(KISSING SOUNDS) - JAMAL: We're still recording.
- WARREN: I know, but JAMAL: No! That's how people get in trouble.
(DOOR OPENS) Yeah, Sven is gonna take a nice long walk, so that you and I can have a nice talk.
Or not so nice.
You choose.
What you gonna do is you gonna go in that precinct, and you gonna tell the boys in blue that you threw - the first punch.
- Okay, I'll do it.
Now, come on, I'm not stupid.
You didn't make your mind up that fast.
You got my word, Cookie.
I'll do it.
Like my son had your word when you told him you loved him? Listen, I'm not expecting you to understand.
Jamal was the love of my life.
And I lost him, so look, clearing his name is the least I can do.
Smart.
- Can you do me a favor, though? - Oh, no, no, no.
No, no.
See, you're not in a position to be asking for favors.
Are you stupid? Just tell Jamal I'm sorry.
Uh, now I'm starting to feel sorry for you, because, see, I didn't come here to transfer messages between you and Jamal.
I came here for answers.
- So what do you want to know? - I need to know about your aunt.
I need to know what she's up to.
'Cause she got all her family members coming after me and my boys.
So I need to know what she has in store for Andre, and you're gonna tell me.
All right.
I'll tell you.
Anika! I know you in there.
I can see the light on from the street.
Let me see Bella! Let's work this out! Anika isn't here, - and neither is Bella.
- When they coming back? I don't know.
She's at her boyfriend Angelo's.
I'm sorry.
(SIGHS) ANDRE: She compromised my therapist? I-I don't understand.
Dr.
Lambert he-he's one of the leading psychiatrists in New York.
Why would he do that to me? Warren says she's got something on that doctor.
(SIGHS) When he first prescribed these to me, I-I felt, um not up to my full potential and Let me see these.
(COOKIE LAUGHS SOFTLY) Yeah, see, he was messing with your meds so he could mess with your mind, so you could tell him things.
LUCIOUS: Now remember.
Did you say anything that might compromise the family? (SIGHS) - You see what that bitch did to Hakeem.
- No.
I I mean, I.
He asked questions.
He's a therapist.
Like what? (SIGHS) Look, I just I told him that I couldn't perform.
- Couldn't perform what? - Sexually, Ma.
Oh.
The work was stressful, and that's-that's it, I think.
- That-That's it.
- COOKIE: All right.
Who knows what you told him? He had you doped up like a racehorse.
Just let me and your father deal with that shrink.
But Andre, you need to get a new doctor ASAP, so you can get your meds recalibrated, okay? Please? - Don't play with this stuff.
- Okay, okay.
I'm so glad you're better, though.
- Tomorrow, okay? - Okay, okay.
- Promise me.
- I promise.
I promise.
I promise.
(SIGHS) Well, I-I got to go.
Uh, I got to apologize to Pamela.
You know, - she deserves better from me.
- Well, I don't know - about all of that if she's a cop.
- No, don't.
- I'd rather you date another white girl.
- Oh, Ma, come on.
Don't listen to anything this crazy woman is saying.
I'm sure she's lovely.
We'd love to meet her.
Thank you.
You know, if you guys hadn't done this for me, - I probably w I might have - COOKIE: Hey.
Tomorrow, Andre.
Yes, ma'am.
Thank you.
(INDISTINCT CHATTER) - Hey, look - Hey.
Uh, where's Poundcake? You ain't heard? They threw her in the hole.
For what? What about the baby? Haven't heard anything.
I'll be back.
- What'd you do to Poundcake? Huh? - You must have me mistaken.
I'm not some Joe Familiar you just come out of the mouth to.
- I got a right to know.
- And I got a right to throw you in the hole, you don't shut up.
Look, I know that's your baby.

The murder I confessed to you a few days ago.
You can take it down to the precinct, they'll file it away as evidence, and it'll put me away for the rest of my life.
Why would I do that? You called me a liar.
And accused me of colluding with people I don't even know.
I know.
I'm sorry.
- Look - (SCOFFS) You're sorry.
- I'm sorry.
- No.
I'm-I'm sorry, Pamela.
(SIGHS) Look, okay.
I called you over here for something different, okay? You know, it-it's good news, all right? My family figured out how Diana DuBois - was trying to work with my - Andre.
Andre.
I don't care about Diana.
Or-or any damn DuBois or whoever else.
I don't even know these people.
- Yeah, and I - But yet you charge me with betrayal without any evidence.
And that's based on what? The fact that you and I happened to meet when-when your family is going through all of this? - I'm sorry, baby.
- No.
No, no, don't-don't "baby" me.
- Andre, no.
Don't.
Don't.
- Come on.
Hey You-you accused me of treachery, even when I trusted you with the biggest secret of my entire life.
You can trust me, baby.
- You can - Andre, I killed someone.
I murdered them.
And I have to carry that with me every day until I die.
Do you have any idea what that feels like? To-to walk around with-with the weight of-of a guilt like this.
You have no idea! - No idea.
You-You could never understand what it is - Pamela.
- I'm dealing with.
- Pamela! I do know how it feels.
I know exactly, exactly what that kind of guilt can do to you.
Ask me how.
I did something terrible, Pamela.
I know.
- (DOOR OPENS) - THIRSTY: Lucious! Oh, hey.
Look, there's something rotten in Denmark, okay? I went above due diligence, tapping every contact I got.
There never was a Pamela Rose in the NYPD.
- What? (SCOFFS) - Never heard of her.
Andre's getting played.
Baby, what happened? You can tell me.
I, um (PHONE BUZZING) He's not answering his phone.
Last time I had eyes on him, he was headed to his house.
Let's go.
You got it? I'm good, I'm good.
(SIGHS) What did you do? The car bomb.
Uh (EXHALES) It was me.
I tried to kill my father.
I tried to kill him.
I do know what it's like to carry guilt.
Hmm? And you understand me.
We understand each other.
Right? I got you.
I got you.
I have a confession, too, Andre.
I'm not NYPD.
I'm Vegas Metro.
Undercover.
And I've been after you for quite some time.
And I finally got your ass.
(CHUCKLES) You have got to be the dumbest criminal in the history of crime, you know that? Did you really think that you would get away with it? I mean, with everything you've done? I know about the car bomb, you idiot.
I've known all along.
And the guy you hired to do it, Franco, I know about him, too.
Or what's left of him, I should say.
And poor Giuliana Green.
Got a little too overconfident and got herself killed.
By you.
But most of all, I know you're going away for the rest of your life.
Andre Lyon, you are under arrest.
You have the right to remain silent Stop.
Stop! On the ground.
On the ground.
Stop! (GUNSHOTS) (GRUNTING) - (SHOUTING) - (GRUNTING) (CHOKING) (GRUNTS) What? Oh (SHOUTS) Pamela, come on.
